Walkman update (8.5.A.3.2) – view songs in your playlist on Android Wear

by XB on 13th March 2015

in Applications

Walkman 8.5.A.3.2_1A new update is now rolling to the Walkman application which moves the build number from 8.5.A.2.10 to version 8.5.A.3.2. The update now allows Android Wear users to view songs within their synchronized playlist and to start playback from any song in a playlist. Other changes include visual improvements, although it wasn’t immediately clear what these were (please chime in below if you know!) The 14.1MB update is rolling now.

Update: Some users are now seeing “Spotify” listed as a service in the settings (see below). This is likely a precursor for the full PlayStation Music (power by Spotify) launch at the end of the month.

Walkman Spotify

Thanks Dedei, Fadi, Mayur and Rolf!

  • Kiwison

    Did they change the old Walkman logo on the back buttons?

  • Dáire Mooney

    No, unfortunately not as far as I can tell.

  • Fadi Obaya

    Spotify to be launched soon on Walkman

  • Messup7592

    .. And the name of the app is still walkman (not Music yet) :-)

  • Boonerski

    Downloading… NOW!

  • Kiwison

    Lol, Sony makes me laugh sometimes, I hope they don’t make the same minor mistakes in long-waited Lollipop update too

  • I think they added list sections headers

  • Rolf Martin Schmidt

    Spotify is already linked in the main menu.
    If you click it, you will be transferred to the Spotify app without using the Walkman player.
    I don’t know how it works, if you have the Premium/Pay-Version of Spotify.

  • Diogo Simões

    I’m so excited about PlayStation Music since here in Portugal we never had the Music Unlimited but it’s now official that we are on the firsts country’s to receive the new service

  • No Spotify in India :(

  • Someone can mirror the APK ? … those rollback never get on my phone :/

  • There’s a system update available in the screenshot posted above. Is it lollipop? :P

  • damian01211

    It only shows when you have spotify installed.

  • Tsakane

    No, and they aren’t going to because in Lollipop the back buttons are just arrows and they don’t show logos like in Kit Kat

  • Nett Bill
  • Amel_Marie

    I’ve got it!

  • KGZ-2
  • Tsakane

    To anyone wondering, they added shadows and new animations when viewing albums and track lists.

  • Guest

    Shadow yes, but what animation?

  • Fadi Obaya

    Spotify in menu.

  • a.hamameh

    Got it and yes they added Spotify to it
    And when you press it, it launches Spotify app

  • Gabriel

    If you’ve installed the Spotify app it’ll appear in Walkman.

  • Jaissal S

    Got it too. Will download later today. I don’t really use the playlist ability on my Smartwatch 3. I use it to change volume or track or pause etc.

  • Tsakane

    I’m too lazy to explain it, but you’ll notice them eventually.

  • mukul verma

    spotify is not for india. its not available in india.

  • mukul verma

    i didnt get this, as all of us had seen music app in m4aqua & z4 tablet in mwc, music app had replace walkman app in lollipop, so whats the use of updating walkman app if/may be we all getting music app in lollipop rom.

  • sony

    i bought iphone 6 today i love it so much .. ios 8.1.2 is pre installed… also i check for new update and i receive ios 8.2 update :)… the size of OTA update is 476 Mb…

  • -Simone-

    No Spotify in Italy…

  • nick

    i think u mistaken it for iosblog buddy.. Sorry its not..

  • I don’t know what bugs are fixed?! ):

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Är det på Z3 Tablet som du fått den inställningen?

  • Snorky112

    it’s the same app.. just called “Music” instead of “walkman”

  • carmelous

    strano, a me è venuto fuori invece… :/

  • Jecht_Sin

    Actually I’ve got it. You may need to install the Spotify app first. All it does is to launch it.

  • Jecht_Sin

    Not everyone will update to Lollipop, even if it is available. And Sony needs to change Walkman because music Unlimited will close the 29th.

  • RHBH

    Does Walkman save Spotify offline music in SD Card? Or will it remain the same as Music Unlimited that gives you unlimited songs for offline playback but don’t allow to save in the SD card.

    As far I know the official Spotify App do allow the user to save songs in the SD card,

  • RHBH

    Same behavior and I have the Spotify premium. Is justs open Spotify App.

  • Khaled

    Please don’t tell me that’s all it does! I was thinking they will integrate spotify playlists, search and menus in Walkman! This is beyond lame! What’s the point of having a shortcut to to an external app!

  • Amel_Marie

    Off topic discussion: why sony’s flagships didn’t have dual tone flash? I’ve seen some flagships from other brands, they have it but not sony. Is this some kind of gimmick feature that sony just go”meh” About it?

  • jag

    Updated! This makes me want to buy a smartwatch 3! Good job sony!

  • Khaled

    Heads up!

    Sony just launched Walkman beta test group on Google+, feel free to join and provide your feedback to the development team


  • mukul verma

  • Ritwij

  • laci_csk

    Change the theme

  • damian01211

    Uninstall it and the spotify will be gone from walkman ;) I guess it’s only some how a shortcut to it or Sony haven’t implement it yet.


    Experia Z3 tablet is also available?

  • Ritwij

    I have spotify installed but I don’t see the shortcut in Walkman.

  • mrjraider

    Stock 4.3 theme it is.
    Besides all the 4.3 themes preinstalled are showing black status and navbar.

    Keine Spotify in China… Xperia hat aber mit ein paar chinesische Musik Apps zusammengearbeitet, man kann einfach die Musik Apps in Walkman öffnen, und es gibt Sonys exklusive Zone in diesen Musik Apps. Die funktioniert aber nicht so gut, und seit Z2 gibt es diese Dienste nicht mehr.

    Walkman update removed the Walkman on my lockscreen???

  • Prasad Daki

    What about spotify for India??

  • Tan Keeyong

    Sony should combine track id and walkman apP or somehow integrate or link them so I can hav. Detail about my songs and artists. And track my song just in walkman app.
    For current track it app. I just wish I could have an option to keep artist or album as favourite then view it after.

    Please check out this community if want to be a Walkman beta tester!

  • Juan

    How come SensMe doesn’t appear in the Playlists selection? It appears on my Xperia, but not on Nexus5. I know its a Sony product, but how to activate on non-Xperia phone?

  • GDavid

    This update BROKE my 3K++ song collection on my device!

    Thanks Sony for giving me an Android application where I CANNOT SELECT WHICH FOLDERS MY COLLECTION IS STORED IN ON MY SD CARD!!!
    Not the first thing Sony’s software has broken
