WALKMAN_8.3.A.0.5_1The WALKMAN application for Sony Xperia handsets has been updated to build number 8.3.A.0.5 (previously it was on 8.3.A.0.2). This is primarily a crash and bug-fixing update, with Sony apologising for the last build that caused issues for many people. Sony promises that this new release “should be working smoothly“. The 11.5MB update should be rolling out now to Sony Xperia phones. You can download the apk here.

    There are issues with WALKMAN 8.3.A.0.2? I don’t seem to find any. Updated to 8.3.A.0.5 a few hours back though too.

  • Sadman Khan

    I noticed only one issue before when pressing “all songs” and it would just stay there. Nothing would happen :P

  • John Zakaria

    Xperia ZR got the update

  • Caio Faria

    No, I can listen to previews of songs, access playlists…

  • Clamser

    Sony is currently updating the asshole to annoy us

    Me before the update, my audio player plays the flac files. But since this update impossible to read these files. Sony, attention to the leakage of customers.

  • Daire

    Wifi only or 4G?

  • Killian Khoo

    Thats weird ~

  • Aman Verma

    Well that depends on where u live. It’s just like colour and color, same word, same meaning but different spelling.

  • Hendrik

    I even didn’t get the update before this bugfixing one, so when it’ll be available on my Xperia Z1compact? Is it a mistake of mine? Anyone didn’t get it either?

  • Guest


  • lolop

    Just download the APK man…

  • Update works great for me. Loving the new UI, hope they bring customizable lockscreen wallpapers back soon. Cheers!

  • hansip

    Yeah so am i. Nothing wrong with the old one. Wonder what major issue happened with the Old Walkman?

  • Burak

    They will probably fix this with 761 bugfix. I didn’t get previous Version with Update center too. I downloaded Previous version as apk

  • Chen

    What version of tablet z is yours? GLOBAL? Why the version of. Walkman on my tablet z is 7.15.A.02? I never received any update for it.

  • one12seven

    Is it me or my ZR is much louder now! Very nice

  • jag

    maybe you should try to install the app again? because flac files are playing well in my walkman app too. using Z Ultra here. one thing that it is missing is the facebook share option again. not that i share them to facebook. its just my version is different from the one in your screenshot.

  • blitz_arc

    it does have quite a bug, the one that really irritate me is that Walkman suddenly crashed when you are playing songs while browsing chrome. anyway, now the update is up i hope the bug is gone by now.

  • blitz_arc

    apologise = uk english
    apologize = us english

  • Daire

    With the wifi only, has either you received any of the app updates from update center, even though the apks work great?

  • Daire

    I haven’t either. The latest apks work great though, so just install the updates using them

  • Vitali

    Yeah, why not :) if you want I can give you some screenshots

  • Vitali

    I have the Israeli version, and I’ve got all the updates.. Ask the shop where you bought the tablet.. Idk..

  • ash

    Even I have not got the update (not even the older one). Those who are asking to install apk, why should I? Did I paid 33000 indian rupees to install updates manually?

  • InspectorGadget80

    I never had any problems with my Z1 Walkman app. Just update when Google updates android OS.

  • Shubham Kapoor

    the 8.3.A.0.5 version is really bad, I hate this update and I do not use the walkman. I’d rather get the old version (for xperia L). (I’m french)

  • Mohit Kumar

    Walkman app should be named as BUG app now. Edit music info option whenever i use it downloads and saves the album art but when next time within a minute i use it the album art is gone…throughout the UI the app has become very slow u can actually fell the slowness in Album option and the Album app too has become very slow. Thinking of uninstalling the last updates.
    I am using Z1 Compact.

  • Gumri

    Who desinged this update? The home screen has a big play button for next song that I don’t like. Then it took randomly some songs and put it on the home screen that I cannot move it. And the playlist are at the bottom and I cannot change the order or move them. I know that you have the left menu, but the home screen Sucks. Please anyone contact Sony Mobile and ask to re do this app.
