xperia-home-beta_10-2-a-1-12_2Sony Mobile has introduced a new version of the Xperia Home Beta, which reintroduces the Google Now pane. If you remember, this feature was introduced previously (10.0.A.0.73), before being pulled due to bugs. Sony says that the new version (10.2.A.1.12) of the launcher is one of the “most stable to date”. If you want to give it a try, head over to the Xperia Home Beta Google+ page.

    Haven’t received it on my z2 even though I’m part of the home beta program

  • SonyMan

    Update your “Software Update” app and then you’ll see it through this downloading! Your full path should be Settings>About Phone>Software Update>3 dots>Refresh. It should first update itself and then download Xperia Home automatically. Hope it helps

  • Is there a non beta version of this app? If yes is it only available to some models?

    I dont have any updates but when I try to join XPERIA HOME BETA it doesn’t work
    Any solutions?

    You device need display replacement. My previous Z2 also had that problem after using 1.5 year.
    Waterproofing will be gone after screen replacement.

    Sorry for bad english :(

  • EMP

    but same buttons works in lock screen and landscape mode :/ looks like only that option left already tried resetting device software repair but did not work,
    display will cost somewhat 7k rs
    and its ok even my English is poor :P

  • Tomislav Matić

    If you go to official Sony service center, waterproofing will not be gone.

  • thanks but what is the official way to get it?

  • Priyanka Singh

    Where is VOLte for Xperia Z3+ plus in india Sony pl update.

  • EMP

    no idea but tht apk works

  • Alvin

    I can’t go to the Google now pane although I’ve enabled it before…

  • SonyMan

    You should already a member on the Xperia home G+ community. Then you should opt in as tester and then software update will update you Xperia home automatically. If it’s not send me which device you’re using and what version of Xperia home are you running right now.

  • Finally got this working on my Xperia Z2, and it walks alright,

  • Wolf0491

    non beta I don’t think so unless you have a brand new sony phone with it on there. Official way is through the google+ page which IMO is harder to do then just installing APK

  • Parag Sant

    How are you able to update this xperia home via APK file or something else?

  • paul_cus

    It works well on the X Compact.

  • Priyanka Singh

    But where is option to activate pl do reply

  • Roh_Mish

    They need to add support for the pine on their side. All you can do is point them so that they know you want it. If enough people ask, they might just do that. Twitter is always your friend.
