We have already reported about Sony Mobile’s new Media apps a fortnight back, but Sony took the time to detail exactly what changes are in the new apps. We thought we’d quickly let you know what new features it includes – the main one being integration for Sony’s cloud services (Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited and PlayMemories Online).
The update is available for a number of handsets running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean including the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia Z Ultra. An update should appear OTA, but if you can’t wait, you can check out the changelog below where we’ve also included links to the apks once again.
