PS4 Firmware Update 7.50 beta is out, and it comes with one important change
Sony is currently rolling out the latest update for PlayStation 4 consoles.
This new update – version 7.50 – affects both the vanilla PlayStation 4 console and the PlayStation 4 Pro.
Though firmware update 7.50 is only currently in the beta testing phase, internet sleuths have been quick to point out it seems to be introducing some unannounced features to the console.
Though Sony has only acknowledged that the update will make the system more stable (a standard thing for these updates), there does appear to be on unannounced update arriving with the update, too.
After installing the beta update, PlayStation 4 consoles now support HDCP 2.3 instead of the old HDCP 2.2.

HDCP (that stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is basically a security protocol that allows for the protection of digital content on your system, and secures data being shared between console and your HD TV.
Basically, this new update means there will be less noticable bugs, and more support for users that have home theatre setups running HDCP 2.3.
The update also has another unannounced it of functionally: users on the PlayStation 4 will now be able to organise any of their apps into folders – not just games (via Reddit ).
If you're not a part of the beta, you can look forward to this update arriving on your console in the coming weeks – beta testers don't tend to have too much of a head start on regular users these days, maybe a week or two.
