Sony updates its media apps

Sony is rolling out updates for few of its media apps in order to provide a “more converged and full Sony entertainment experience.” The main idea was to integrate Sony’s cloud music, video and photo services into Album, Movies, and “WALKMAN” app. So here’s what’s changed:

WALKMAN

  • Sony’s Music Unlimited integration – with universal search across local and cloud content.
  • New social features that makes it easy to discover, play and share tunes on your social channels
  • Gapless, smooth playback

Album

  • PlayMemories Online integration – with the ability to upload to, access, and browse your PlayMemories library in the cloud
  • Recall Playback – which intelligently displays and reminds you of memories, occasions and events
  • Favorites – let’s you *star* your best snaps, for easy viewing later

Movies

  • Seamless access to Sony’s Video Unlimited
  • A revamped UI with a banner video function for trailers and recently played videos

The update will be available for select smartphones, including the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia Z Ultra. If you own one of this devices, you’ll be prompted to update any day now. ;)
