Video_9.0.A.0.20_1Sony has updated the “Movies” app with build number 9.0.A.0.20 and in the process rebranded the app to “Video”. Other new features include a more simplified drawer with ‘Camera’ and ‘TV’ now nestled under ‘Folders’ for direct access to your own videos.

The layout within ‘Folders’ has been improved and there is also more detail in the options menu including sequential playback, delete video, video info and more. The main view has also been enhanced with easy access to recently added videos. The 11.5MB update is currently rolling out to those on Lollipop through the What’s New app.

    I didn’t find how to update, but if you go to “Parameters/About Phone/Software Update”, you’ll have the notification.

  • theblucandy

    No dload apk or wait

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Yea so his question was whether the update is only for lollipop so the answer is NO

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    That I had to do to receive the update… Strange but thx for the info tho :-D

  • jag

    Did you know? Playstation music is now live with spotify? I tried it with the walkman app but it is still not fully integrated yet? It just launches the spotify app when you hit the spotify under services tab.

    Next step – rebranding “xperia” to “mobile”.

  • Kabuto Kouji

    sorry my dumb question but, why when i try to download it gives me an apk.exe file? and not just an apk file??? never mind….hitted wrong place …

  • NoctilucentSoul

    Not mobile but something else for sure. Xperia brand have been associated with bad experience prior to Z series.

  • Damon Adrian

    Why didn’t they put it on play store?

  • NoctilucentSoul

    Crashes in Xperia SP. :/

  • charbel aoun

    Hahahahaha. Nice one

  • mrjraider

    I don’t understand two things:
    1: Why is Sony removing and renaming the applications that made a Sony Xperia Mobile device special? I mean, walkman is walkman and Movies is and always will be Movies.
    2: Why slowly removing the function of the Updater application? This doesn’t make sense.

    They are focussing on the wrong things the past couple of months. By for example; not giving the xperia SP a promised KitKat and many other very minor things.. Sony where are you going?

    (next stop: SGS 6)

  • Finally lollipop for my Z3 Compact! Generic version – Jordan

  • aman nankani

    I like this name.
    I mean if the app is capable of accessing and playing the videos (that includes music videos,tv episodes,camera recordings,etc) on the phone then why name it ‘Movies’.

  • SirNiColas
  • ash

    not asking to make a copy

  • ash

    if the app is capable of accessing and playing the videos (that includes music videos,tv episodes,camera recordings,etc) on the phone then why name it ‘Movies’

  • Timel

    Ugly UI anyway!

  • Messup7592

    Lucky you

  • Alberto

    Finally Lollipop, Z3C Italy :D

  • Already installed it. So far so good. Smooth and perfect. Recommended!

  • Messup7592

    Glad to hear that ^^
    I have the Z1 so I have to wait a little bit I guess

  • Khaled

    Just curious, have video unlimited been removed from Video app?

  • J@S0n

    still waiting for the 5.0lolipop upgrade…Z3@hk

  • Well, I just receive the notice about apps update. Maybe you should turn on the sync settings.

  • Yuen Lui

    so what is the subtitle function?

  • Eduardo Otero

    Before anything you have to think twice, that Xperia SP didn’t update to KitKat was because it didn’t work on SP, and they couldn’t blow every SP around the world. It was bettter keeping on Jelly Bean. Unfortunately nobody can understand that.
    About the apps while they do their work right it doesn’t matter how they be called anyway Movies or Video will be good, the same on Walkman and Music, besides it was wrong to called Walkman that app because the real Walkman now also plays videos and Pictures, not only music. It does make sense.

  • bilomar

    Rebranding “be.moved” to “keep.waiting.

  • Moshe Auguztyn

    dont know what you’re thinking Sony, name ‘”Movies” is much more Elegant for me… Think Again

  • Brian De Guzman

    I was about to watch a film today in my Bravia when I noticed they have the same art as to what is seen in the Xperia, I’m pretty sure it has always been called “Videos” in Bravia way back, things are getting a little more uniform now across different Sony divisions and I hope it is a good sign.

  • ?????????

    when?and where is URL?

  • ?????????

    ok i’ve found it.don’t reply

  • mrjraider

    We both know that your first argument is bullshit. There is no official statement from Sony telling why the SP did not get the so called promised update. And I still blame Sony for misleading us as users.
    The hardware: a powerfull dualcore (as found in the Moto X) and a very good GPU at that time. (GPU is the same as the Xperia Z) are more than capable to run KitKat and even Lolipop.

  • adneon0

    Sony is getting very good at losing their uniqueness ! -_-

  • Jason Quick

    It also breaks Video Unlimited, none of my downloaded films work with the new Videoapp

  • TechGuyChris

    If you ask anyone about “Walkman” they will say the device of the 70s and 80s. Its an old brand that needs to be retired. I’m glad its going away. No one uses Walkman anymore

  • haydarhaydar

    how can i update in official way

  • Roshan

    To tell you the truth.. I liked movies better.
    It looked unique and sexy.
    The update makes it kind of dull.

  • Thai Amulet

    neither of these apps are in google play. Movies disappeared from my Xperia, and the ‘videos’ app is not findable anywhere.

  • Thai Amulet

    I agree, my Xperia is a load of crap
    Luckily i have an iPhone too

  • Thai Amulet

    Sony have lost the plot, and are desperately ‘chopping and changing’ all the time like grasping straws trying to stay above water. They discontinued Vaio computers, and now their Tablet Z is on its deathbead, so soon its just playstation, phones and tvs. Then it will be just playstation and TV, after which samsung will drive the hammer home, and Sony will be just ‘Playstation’ best not to go for Sony these days. because they are on the way out

  • Thai Amulet

    yes i give them 5 stars in losing their identity.
