What’s more exhilarating to this experience is its latest design which optimizes the level of entertainment by making the experience feels like watching it as if on big-screen TV. One can now share and comment on videos in the YouTube app. If subscribed to YouTube, one can also access subscription-only channels and playlists.
Gameplay Sharing. Though the app is available on the Xbox One and Wii U, the PS4 advantage lies on its faster and smoother browsing and its unique Gameplay Sharing. This is the ultimate joy of montage makers and avid game-sharers. All they need to do is hit the “share” button on their DualShock4 and voila! Uploading their whole montage of awesome game experience can finally be seen by others on YouTube.

From themes to colors, all you need to do is insert the USB stick into the PS4 to allow music of your choice to play in the background.
