Music 9.0.1.A.3.0beta_1Sony has rolled a new update to the Music Beta moving the build number to 9.0.1.A.3.0beta. The big new change is a quick play button which can be used to shuffle your songs under various parameters (all, most played, favourite, newly added).

There does seem to be a bug though as the button is not present for everyone (us included). The devs are aware of the issue and will look into it tomorrow. The other addition is colour picking on landing page items. The update can be downloaded from the Google+ Walkman Beta page or via the link below.

    Just a heads up. So far the z3+ does support full manual controls but raw support for now is missing. Since Sony is considering Raw support in their forums maybe we will see it in a future update for the phone.

    And the video app has an update too

    Hoooolly Cow! So there is a chence for manuak camera on older xperia devices :d

  • I don’t mind the raw thing as long as we have full manual control,that’d be great.

    No, there isn’t. In true manual mod you control the aperture, shutter speed and ISO. On phones, you can’t control the aperture, so there is no full manual control. You can set the shutter speed and ISO, but 99% of users will end up with wrong exposure. Unless you use the “sunny 16” rule, and calculate the shutter speed and ISO needed for you fixed aperture, according to the current lighting conditions. Can you do that, every time you want to take a snapshot? No? Why the fuss then?

    i guess I was one of the lucky ones. Mine appears and it works.

    The app is improving nicely, they just need to make lock screen album art optional and integrate the two “3 dot ” menus into one and it will be perfect.

    The screenshots shows it’s running on kitkat. It’s working on my lollipop device.
