New Album update (6.2.A.0.22) allows you to share online content; adds small UI tweaks

Album 6.2.A.0.22_3Sony has updated the Album application for Xperia devices moving the build number from version 6.1.A.0.14 to 6.2.A.0.22. The new update brings colour icons to the pull-out navigation menu, bringing it in line with other Sony apps.

The other main change is the ability to share online content and you now get the option to choose which online services appear in your navigation menu (Facebook, Picasa and Flickr). Prior to this, all three services were stuck in your menu even if you don’t use Facebook, for example.

For some reason, we couldn’t appear to connect to the PlayMemories service in this version. We’re not sure if this is a wide-spread problem, but let us know how you are getting on with the update in the comments below. The new update is currently rolling to Sony Xperia devices, or you can download the APK here.

    The rate at which Sony updates their media apps is alarming!!! Probably a good thing.

    If they updated the phones like they do this app, they’d have some amazing phones!

    Is there a way to convert Album.apk to system apps (Or integrate it to system)?
    I can convert Video, Walkman and the recent contact.apk into system apps, but not with album. Clearing data/cache/dalvik cache also not helping at all. Anyone have solution? Thanks…

    Same issues on my end with play memories not working on my Xperia Z

  • ShinOrochiX

    All you have to do is push the apk to the system and set permissions, rw-r-r. To do this you need root with a root explorer/file manager.

  • Luca

    Settings still aren’t working on Xperia SP

  • Govindaraj Meena

    Playmemories not working video unlimited not working on zr

  • Kadek

    I already did that. But when I open the album its only showing black screen.
    I already did that with Video.apk, Walkman.apk, contact.apk, all working fine without any trouble. Just album.apk give me this problem :(

  • nikhil

    there is a notification, will resume on 17th

  • Samuel

    Album updates CAN’T be converted to a System app. I’ve tried before and this time was no exception. At least it didn’t force close…but wouldn’t show my media files.

  • blurb8

    Playmemories is down since the weekend. See here for details:

  • luigi

  • sQueezedhe

    I’ve never been able to connect to Play Memories on either of my z2 tablet or phone.

    It’s because you need 4.4.4 to install this update.
