Sony details Firmware 2.0 in video ahead of tomorrows update

Sony has once again reminded us that PS4 Firmware arrives tomorrow. 

This is the biggest update to the PS4 system so far and includes YouTube support, Share Play and more.

Here's the top features arriving tomorrow. We aren't sure if there are any hidden features that we don't yet know about.

PS4 Firmware 2.0 main features

Share Play: PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing you to invite a friend to join your game – even when they don’t own a copy of it.

YouTube: A dedicated app for YouTube is coming with v2.0, along with the ability to upload gameplay highlights directly from PS4 to YouTube by clicking the ‘Share’ button on DUALSHOCK 4. You'll need to go to the PlayStation Store to download the YouTube app.

Themes and colours: Personalise your home screen background with select themes and colors.
Live broadcasting enhancements: Search filters, archived broadcast support and more have been added to Live from PlayStation.

Content Area and Library: Find and access your content quicker with a redesigned Content Area and improved filter and sort functions for the PS4 Library.

USB Music Player: Insert USB memory with music in your PS4 and start playing your favourite tunes in the background.

Players you may know: Get suggestions for gamers you may know in the ‘What’s New’ section

PS Vita and PS TV update

Also available tomorrow is a new system software update (v3.35) for PS Vita and PS TV, which includes four-player Remote Play support for PS TV, as well as the Live from PlayStation app, which allows you watch game streams from PS4 on both your PS Vita and PS TV devices.

PS App update

Lastly, the new 2.0 update for the PS App will include a redesigned home screen, and a new layout for tablets.

Looking forward to YouTube support as I don't have Facebook, and don't want it, so can't share videos yet
