Transparent artboard backgrounds in Photoshop

I love the Photoshop artboard feature, however I’m used to seeing the transparent background grid. Is there any way to show this in my artboards in Photoshop?

And yes, I know it will still save with a transparent background, but I like having the grid that way if I were to use a white background for something I would be able to distinguish the white object from transparent.

Picture for reference:

As of Photoshop CC 2015.5 you can now have artboards with transparent backgrounds.

Either create a new Artboard and select Transparent under the Background Contents menu or, if you have an existing artboard, simply select it in the layers panel, open up the properties windows and change the background with the Artboard background color dropdown. (Note that you can change the background of each individual artboard separately or change them all at once by selecting the artboards in the layer panel.)
