With PS4 users now getting used to the system and the features that Sony brought to the tablet at launch, it’s clear that a lot of functionality is missing that we didn’t see in PS4 update 1.51. The good news is that Sony are inevitably hard at work on improving the the PS4 interface and we’re excited about what will be coming in the PS4 1.52 update that is bound to land soon.

 

One of the biggest features missing from launch that definitely should have been there is a YouTube app. It’s rather inexplicable of Sony to have missed this out, so hopefully it will be ready by the time 1.52 is ready to download – after all, the Xbox One has a great YouTube app available to all users at launch.

 

Another big missing feature that we didn’t see is DLNA server support. Connecting your PS3 to your PC was a great feature that almost became second nature to PS3 users as they enjoyed viewing their PC content straight on the PS3.

 

Unfortunately though, it was missing from the PS4 at launch, but will make it onto the system at some stage during a future update as promised by Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida. Other notable mentions have to be MP3 and Audio CD support, but again Sony has promised these to come in a future update too.

 

Will the missing features above all be ready for 1.52? We doubt it, but it would be nice if Sony at least offers some of these. Apps is definitely one area that needs improvement, as it would be fantastic if Sony could offer pages and pages of apps for users to download – we just hope it doesn’t end up like the Vita, ie no new apps seen for months, which is shocking.

The interface is fine itself we feel, but perhaps could do with a little touching up ready for the new year. After most of you have become comfortable with browsing through the PS4 features since launch, tell us what new features you would like to see in the forthcoming 1.52 update.

 

Edit: Changed misleading title

Your title is extremely misleading.  The article you linked is mostly conjecture, opinion, and educated speculation.

 

There has been no official date released as to when the next PS4 firmware will be released, or what features will be implemented, despite MP3/DLNA, usb headphone support, and external HDMI capture having been mentioned at various points.

Judging from the usual pattern of updates,
I wouldn't see any added features until 1.6
Usually when it goes from 1.51 to 1.52 it's usually stability fixes and security updates...

The less people getting the horrific Music Unlimited service instead of just insisting Sony acknowledge music ownership will help.

There should be support to show a blu ray's individual icon on the home screen like it is on the PS3.

He gave it to you.

 

Conjecture, opinion, and educated speculation on PS4 update needs.

 

I added that last bit.

Backwards compatibility would be nice.
And the results are in, the winner of Sonys #20YearsOf Play poll is...
"Winner: SOCOM II: U.S. Navy Seals (24.74%)"​

It's a great day to be a SOCOM fan!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome job SOCOM fans, Worldwide!

To be honest I have never used these features for the PS3, and never plan on using them for the PS4.  It does suck when Sony does promise to have a feature, yet was not released on release date.  Hope for the people that do use these features that it does get released soon.  A happy gamer is a good gamer.
I made this, want one for yourself? PM me

Well, you tricked me. I really want more updates, but I'm glad that Sony is playing things safe and testing everything rigorously before releasing it on to our systems. No need to be reckless, I'm just... impatient.
