Sony is rolling out update 3.0 for the PlayStation Vita soon, which preps the handheld for next week’s PlayStation 4 launch in North America.

The update will add the PS4 Link, a new app that allows the Vita to connect to the PlayStation 4 for Remote Play and Second Screen functions. Update 3.0 will also add the ability to chat between Vita and PlayStation 4 via the Party app, a new user interface for the Friends app, the option to download system updates automatically, and the ability to take panoramic photos using the Vita’s camera.

More details on these new features can be found over on the PlayStation Blog and in the video below.
