Sony Mobile has updated the Xperia Weather Beta with a big update that adds a new Clock & Weather widget. This is the same one that you would have seen on the new Xperia handsets announced at MWC recently.

Tapping the widget allows the clock to be opened (if you press the left part) and the Xperia Weather app (by touching the right side). The widget currently only supports your current location at the moment, but this should be updated to add any destination going forward. If you’re a fan of the old Xperia Weather widget, then fear not as both widgets will run side-by-side. You can check out the full change-log below.
