Music (Walkman)_9.0.1.A.0.1_3Sony Mobile has released a new stable update for the Music (Walkman) application which moves the build number from 9.0.0.A.0.1 to version 9.0.1.A.0.1. The new update brings a revamped landing page, the Podcast entry sits in the drawer and “Download music info” has moved to Settings. Navigation bar transparencies have also been re-enabled for those on Android 4.3. Of course, we have already seen these updates in the beta updates, but now it hits all users.

    Play queue replacement is much welcomed. It was uncomfrotable to access it from the side panel

    I left both the Music and Album beta. Didn’t match my needs at the end of tthe day. Stable is what I want, no buggy android for me.

  • Jerry Berglund

    Damn, why can’t they put in chromecast support like in the beta version. It really worked quite well.

    Ouch, the new landing page is definitely a downgrade. What happened to the slick animations and pinch to resize the view & album art? Now it’s bland cards that look like every other app ever with titles that are too narrow to read properly.

    And purple, purple everywhere still clashing horribly with dark grey. What happened to the Sony UI designers … I guess they got purged in the recent job losses :(

    i will stick to my so called walkman ….

  • Yoppy

    Why didn’t make the Open button round?

  • Abhinav Tella

    Not bad, I’m glad they changed the name to Music,nice and simple. This is much more pleasing to the eye than the Google Music App.

    Xperia UI is getting worse everyday
    So sad that Sony fallows the fugly materials design, Xperia UI looks very cheap now

  • anshu

    why there is no clear stereo option in setting?.

  • vctrdnl

    The search/ indexing function is finally fixed, much more importantly than the name of the app and its “landing page”.

  • Well, I would like full app layer like the Album App as Android 4.3 user don’t have transparent notification bar. THe re-enabled transparency is not the perfect solution for JB users!

    where is the sleep timer? :(

    uninstall the beta one, and then install this stable version.

  • Antonio

    Thank you, I can’t uninstall but since play store I Can. This version works great but I think Walkman was better and faster
