Sony’s media applications detailed on video

Sony Mobile has shared a couple of videos that show off its media applications (Walkman, Album and Movies). It emphasises playing, recommending, sharing and discovering media through its apps. Most of the functionality in the video already exists in the latest incarnations of these apps.

Sony also shows off its one-touch functionality where, for example, you can share photos by touching two Xperia handsets together. Or you could one-touch the phone with the Wireless speaker SRS-BTV5 or Wireless speaker SRS-BTM8 to start playing your favourite tracks. These speakers also allow you to share a call with others in the room.

Another feature shown off in the videos is the ability to ‘throw’ photos and video to a big screen TV. This ‘Throw’ feature is in the new UI for these apps as we couldn’t find it in the current versions. We imagine that you will be able to do this via Screen Mirroring which we touched on earlier.

    The NFC Bluetooth pairing works with current phones too. I’ve been walking around the floor pairing my Xperia S with one single NFC tap, it’s really nice and easy!

    Sony is showing its fans some love!

  • Cool vids. Others should learn how

  • I throw movies to my Sony TV and no sound. I spoke with Sony and they said I need to have speakers that are connected to my network. Sucks

  • I just tried again and switched to every sound source I have and still nothing. It also does not throw as fast as the videos illustrate

  • I just tried again and switched to every sound source I have and still nothing. It also does not throw as fast as the videos illustrate

  • Can you guys (Xperiablog) find out how to throw content. Video Format, Sound Format, Can you throw from Video Unlimited, Can you throw from movies purchased or rented from VU, Amazon, Google etc… I have not seen anything on throwing a far as detailed instructions from Sony

    Dont you think the apps are too smooth and fast in the video? but in real life it would never be like that??
