What’s New (3.3.A.0.1) allows you to switch to Dark Theme

What’s New 3.3.A.0.1_2Sony Mobile has released a new update to the “What’s New” application moving it from build number 3.3.A.0.0 to version 3.3.A.0.1. The marginal change in build number belies the importance the update brings for some – the app will now allow you to switch between Light and Dark themes.

The last update (3.3.A.0.0) made the white UI appear throughout the app, which didn’t please all. It is great to see Sony developers being so responsive and introducing an option to revert back to a darker theme. Do note though only the main interface remains dark, the slide out menu will remain ‘light’ even if the Dark theme is activated.

    See? It wasn’t that hard, was it Sony?
    Now I hope they follow suite on ALL of the apps they’ve been entertained changing to white themes and, why not, also in their Marshmallow version of the OS (even though it’s not currently affecting me since my Z3C decided to suddenly die for no reason and had to be sent for warranty repair. I never had a phone dying on me in 17 years…actually…since my last Ericsson. Not a good sign for me as far as it goes…)

    Well it was about time! Now i hope all sony apps will have this option :D

  • me too. I dont like the light theme

    Finally, We hope be same in Music, Video, and Album

    And add third theme like Apple ios

    Some time not good for the eyes, Forexample when you want using the phones before sleeping !

  • Simon

    Fancy app, completely useless though. Maybie Sony should focus more on other phone software departments instead. Would love to see this UI-style throughout the whole Xperia UI. Always liked this blur glass style design.

  • Keion London

    Yes!!!!! Thank you Sony!!!….Xperia z4 tablet

  • Jecht_Sin

    Oh, thanks God. Hopefully all other apps will follow!

  • Malih

    Exactly what I thought everytime I happen to use the app, it has a very smooth animation, unlike other apps with blur glass, that includes iOS blur glass (on 1-year-old hardware, they happen to always be smooth only on latest devices since iOS 7 introduced it)

  • Malih

    Sadly this app still doesn’t have a search box or any form of search function

  • Malih

    Would be nice if they make it universal, one toggle in the quick settings to turn on dark theme for all System and Sony Mobile apps.

  • shenoy

    Light themes are one of the worst thing Sony ever did.

  • Alvin

    Lol… They listened to us… You should look how happy i am seeing this..

  • Kunal Shukla

    i would like this feature for all sony media apps. The white bg music player looks awful.

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    Although I prefer white interface, I am glad to see Sony listening to its users.

  • j_ee

    think cyanogenmode had that option ages ago.

  • j_ee

    i’m curious if anybody ever found this app useful by any way.

  • Madis

    Does anyone actually use the app besides updating sony apps?

    Offtopic: I wish they’d lower minimum brightness for android.

    Ok Sony, you added the ads, let’s say I’m ok with it, but maybe you need to select them more, just a bit XD
