Sony introduces new Gold and Silver tiers for Xperia Lounge app

Xperia Lounge thumbSony revamped the Xperia Lounge app last week, bringing a whole new user interface. Sony talked about new Lounge tiers that would bring exclusive Sony content to Gold and Silver users. At the time there was little information on these tiers, but Sony has now revealed all.

Your Xperia Lounge tier is determined by the handset you own. All Xperia Z series owners will have access to Xperia Lounge Gold, whilst all other owners will get Xperia Lounge Silver. There will be varying levels of exclusive content depending on which tier you belong to. This can include exclusive competitions, offers, new apps or the latest movies, music or TV episodes.

New Xperia Lounge tiers

To upgrade your Xperia Lounge experience, open the app, click on the three dots in the top right and click “My Account”. If you are an Xperia Z series owner, you should be prompted to “Upgrade to Gold!”

You will then see a confirmation of your new level, in this case, Gold. Notice how the header colour of the app has changed from Blue to Gold.

Notice how certain items are now tagged as “GOLD”. For example, the SmartWatch 3 promotion in the screen below right has the following message: “You are GOLD! Welcome to one of your exclusive experiences in the app.”

  • Prestidigitator

    Xperia Z Ultra here. It doesn’t show the opportunity to change to gold. Any fellow Z Ultra owners out there get it to work? Could it be regional? I’m in USA.

  • o Gold (Z2)

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Guys, I did something! When loging in, it offers you 3 ways to log in. When I loged with my facebook acc 3 days ago, I could upgrade to gold! Try that way!

  • Rammstone

    I have Z phone and Z2 tablet and don’t have the option to upgrade on either of them. Must be some region crap. Probably US only as usual

    Yesterday, when I pressed the “My Account” button, I had Gold account. But since I sign out today and resign in, it’s all gone. Just like the normal Xperia Lounge. I’m using Xperia Z2. What’s wrong with this?? ._.
    I had clear the app data and cache and restart my phone.

  • mukul verma

  • Joe

  • A.o.D

    Looks like z series from 2013 aren’t getting the gold version. I did not even get the silver version on my ZL.

  • Lee Jia Hui

    Tried the 3 ways but still didn’t get any silver or gold. (Using Z2)

    I was tired of trying when I decided to changed the language of the app from french to English and guess what ?? it worked !! I have Xperia Z1 !!

  • Micheal Archer

    Maybe try to update the app through the Play Store first, then check My Account through the steps described in the article? I’m using Z1 and just upgraded to Gold (Canada).

  • Mia

    I’m using xperia Z and I got the gold version :)

    Update: I logged out and in again with Facebook, and now I have Gold status. Got the free Mickey Mouse theme even. Always wanted it but didn’t want to pay 1.99 euros for it

  • joe

    Z3 compact no update ???????

  • mrjraider

    What a complete bullshit to just provide the Z series with the “Gold” status. I am so freaking done with Sony giving other devices more and more premium attention.

  • crapifiknow

    no luck on z3v…It is asking for a code….I had a code in November…..

  • brick

    Brand new Xperia Z3 and no gold whatsoever. Maybe it’ll pop up sooner or later.

  • sb945

    nice One

  • happie_horse

    what model do you have bro?

  • mukul verma

    having z1 i am going to ask sony about this prob.

  • Prestidigitator

    The option to upgrade wasn’t available for me using the Xperia Z Ultra but I finally got it to work. I signed out of the app, I cleared app data, I signed back in and saw the option.

  • Himeg

    I’ve tried cleaning app data, logging with FB account, bla bla bla, and nothing changed, but switching language to English finally helped.

  • BillytheKid?

    Why not blue and black? No? Ok gold and white then..

  • Tommy Irianto

    After upgrading my Z3 D6653 to lollipop using the D6603 firmware, my Xperia Lounge reverts back to blue, and somehow there’s no way to upgrade to Gold again like I did before.

  • Ken

    same here :(

  • Ken

    Use to have GOLD… but become blue member after upgrading firmware.

    Restore back to original firmware and login … it is GOLD again…. then update the lounge app.. the GOLD will disappear…

  • William Andreassen

    I had the gold tier for nearly a month now.I have the Z2 but I logged out for nearly a second and then I logged back and it was blue again… Why?

  • impasse

    i was able to do the upgrade after the latest xperia lounge update on my zl (c6506)!

  • A.o.D

    ya me too :)

  • impasse

    only thing i’ve seen is the free breaking bad episode, and an additional entry for a contest here or there : certainly nothing very exciting, hahah..

  • A.o.D

    here in India I’ve got only two gold services like ‘meet the one republic in istanbul’ and ‘meet the script in LA’ and nothing else lol

  • Peter Ward

    Still not got it on my Z Ultra. Uninstalled, reinstalled, logged out, cleared data, logged in, sod all!

  • Nasos Vasiliadis

    HELP! I recently closed my old google account and created a new one. The problem is that my Xperia Lounge Gold membership was with my old Google account and now that I log in the app with my new one, there is no option under “My account” to “Update to Gold”. What can I do? I have an XPERIA Z2. Help would be so much appreciated! No one has answered to me from Xperia Care for over a week! This is urgent, please help.
