As reported earlier this month, since their recent 6.71 PS4 OFW Update those enrolled in Sony's PlayStation Preview Program can now download and install the PS4 Firmware / System Software 6.80 Preview Program PUP for testing purposes. 🔥

Download: PS4UPDATE.PUP (447 MB) via @0x199 on Twitter / PS4UPDATE - PS4 6.81 BETA 1.pup (Mirror) / PS4UPDATE.PUP (Beta 2) (446.9 MB) / PS4UPDATE - PS4 6.80 BETA 2.pup (Mirror) via @Sametto Chan on Twitter

:alert: As usual, those not registered in Sony's PlayStation Preview Program will not be able to install the PUP as it requires a valid PS4 license for installation... also DON'T UPDATE if you wish to use PS4 game backups and homebrew apps whenever a new jailbreak exploit arrives!

Here are the updated features detailed from Sony's official PlayStation Site via @0x199 on Twitter, to quote:
