Not only that players may have had had broadcast their games live but PS4 also has a media sharing option. This feature allows a PS4 user to connect his or her social media accounts with his or her PS4. In turn, such connection allows the PS4 user to share different types of files, ranging from game screenshots to media not related to PS4. Such uploading and sharing may not only be done on social networking sites but also to websites where uploading and content sharing is allowed.
A lot of applications were also added by the developers to PS4. Among these applications, one of the most notable additions is the music streaming application Spotify. A PS4 user is allowed to listen to a wide range of music selection by only searching it in Spotify. A PS4 user may even listen to a selected playlist while playing a game!
Another non-gaming feature of the PS4 is that a PS4 owner is allowed to watch movies, videos, or even live channels. This is possible because of the additional channel applications in the PS4 ranging from NBA to BBC channel.
