wpid-Screenshot_2013-12-10-10-40-36.pngSony is rolling a minor update to the Sony WALKMAN app for Xperia devices.  New build version 8.0.A.0.4 follows a big update in the form of 8.0.A.0.3,  which launched last week. As you can tell from the numbering, this latest update is likely to include bug fixes only. It should be rolling to Xperia Z series devices right now.



Thanks Jiakushi, Jag, Mohit and Uli!

    Same here. Wonder was it region based. Bet when they release 4.4 we will be kept waiting so long by Irish carriers that 5 will be out.

  • Eric Eagle

    Walkman by far is the prettiest music management app for Android, but it still suffers majorly from:

    – Doesn’t correctly read “ALBUM ARTIST” tag in music files (this has been an Android mediastore bug/problem for more than 4 years and is a problem in every music app that uses android’s mediastore to fetch media information… only way around it is for an application to run and maintain its own scanner and database)
    – No quick way to clear queue (I saw a post that actually recommended going into your app settings and clearing your Walkman data as the preferred way to do this??)
    – Queuing songs is a mess (default should be ‘append to now-playing list’ rather than adding songs immediately after the current song)

    Any ideas of where to submit feedback like this?

  • D7Volk

    Am I the only one who’s pissed about the fact that, after so many updates, I still can’t make ONE playlist that can have BOTH songs from Music Unlimited’s cloud storage AND songs from my SD card? There are songs that simply can’t be found in their library, so I keep them on my SD card, but if I want to make a workout playlist, for example, I can’t include both. This is the main reason I switched to Google Play Music…

  • Dragos

    What the f… man, I installed yesterday the 4.3 Android update and my Walkman app reverted to 7.15.A.0.2. My “Update Center” do not show any Walkman update, to 8.0.A.0.3 or 8.0.A.0.4. What’s wrong with this Sony software engineers?

  • rahul

    walkman 8.0.A.0.4 version is applicable for XPERIA C ????
