Sony has detailed the PS4 system software 4.50 update on the PlayStation Blog, and it's bringing some pretty significant changes.

The PlayStation 4 is getting external hard drive support in the next system update. USB 3.0 hard drives up to 8TB will be compatible, and games and applications saved to them will seamlessly appear on the console's home screen.

Another important new feature is the PS4 Pro Boost mode, exclusive to the Pro version of the console.

"Boost Mode lets PS4 Pro run at a higher GPU and CPU clock speed for smoother gameplay on some PS4 games that were released before the launch of PS4 Pro (and has not been updated to support PS4 Pro)", Sony said in a recent update.

Also coming in the update is the ability to use screenshots as background wallpaper, a smaller quick menu which takes up less of the screen, a simplified notifications list (placing Game Alerts, Downloads, Uploads, and so on into one list), and the option to post directly into the Activity Feed.

The PS4 system software 4.50 update is now in beta, and a wider release date for all consoles has not been announced.
