2013-10-16 07.54.41A new version of Sony’s Album app has been released for the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra smartphones. Version 5.2.A.0.6 is 14.9MB in size and introduces software performance improvements and more PlayMemories Online functions.

Sony is providing automatic upload similar to current Dropbox and Google+ services, however Sony is including unlimited storage. One caveat is that Sony will resize the photos when uploaded to the cloud, so you won’t get a copy of your original photo like you do with Dropbox. Go to the Update Centre to download the Album updte now.

Update: The updated Album app is also available on the Xperia Z, ZL and ZR.

    Major bug with this latest Album Update: It does not allow you to select multiple images for upload like the earlier versions… If you select multiple photos, it automatically deselects them when you click the “share” icon… This happens when you are logged onto play memories sharing. Anyone noticing this?

  • wim den boer

    Xperia zr also in the Netherlands

  • Bodaki Krisztián

    Xperia Z (Hungarian) ! :)

  • philip21

    Wat is wd the tumbs down..

  • Nguyen Eazy

    yes, but, not much different thought, slightly change in the bg color and image display in My albums tab

  • Yes… deselecting at random, or suddenly loading one of the selected pictures.

    However, trying an hour later it seems to work now – so I guess it was doing something in the background (recompiling thumbnail images or something?) and – touch wood – seems to work.

    Can’t find any options to upload to anything but Play Memories though.

  • Sumedh Patil

    Got the same update for Xperia ZR in India. Waiting for Android 4.3 update :)

  • dakilang-batman

    Thanks! Btw who voted us down?! Those selfish bastards

  • swapnil

  • John

    Also available her in singapore but I guess Playmemories for Album, Unlimited music for walkamn and Unlimited Videos for movies applications are not allowed in some countries becaouse of the local carrier exclusivities on music, movie downloads

  • Musadiq Khan

    I’m in the same situation…..
    What Xperia you have?

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Here it takes 2-4 secs time to load BE2…. Donno why ??? :(

  • jack

    works in xperia p too !!

  • jj

    It is like a ploy to get people to get the newer model phones. Anytime a new feature or app hits a newer model people feel compelled to upgrade. They can offer it for all Xperia phones, for at least 2012 if not 2011 models, yet they only release for the Xperia Z, ZL and ZR. However, as users post it works with the S, P, T, etc. Plus always looks the same to me anyways!!

  • spade

    LOL.. Butthurt i guess xD

  • RatedR

    Even i got this for my Xperia ZR

  • Xperia s and you?

  • Hmm

    Same here…

  • Found It

    Scroll all the way to the bottom right and there is a button “Done” :D

  • Niclas Sweden

    Also on xperia z Sweden :-D

  • :D :D Tks

  • Okazuma

    Me too…

  • Okazuma

    procedure completed successfully after clicking the whole page because not appear the “Done” button

    Unfortunately, once you have selected the picture, Xperia S says that the upload was interrupted.

    The usual story to cut out the “old” models.

    Nexus is the way

  • iamgoogle

    Does it works on other smartphone like HTC One?

  • Guest

    that’s why sony is being a dick

  • jin

    why can’t sony release their apps down to all their phones ? it’s not like the album app requires robust hardware!

    I was excited it worked on my Acro S 4.1.2 but it’s too slow (probably it works best in 4.2+).

  • Bret Homan

    Looks like it does not work on the tablet z. The walkman and movies apps do, but not the album app.
