The update adds a number of new features to both the PS4 and PS4 Pro including the new Play Time Management feature, UI updates and more.

As many know, today (March 8th) is International Women's Day and as a way of celebrating the contributions that women have made across all walks of life, Sony is one of the companies looking to celebrate the occasion with a new theme that all gamers can enjoy.
