Re: Walkman 8.5.A.2.7 update

I hate how it looks. The combination between Google material design and Sony design is not working good. It looks really bad. I liked the previous version better. And the icon? It looks terrible together with the other Sony media apps icons :album or movies. Please do something.. Slightly frowning Face

Re: Walkman 8.5.A.2.7 update

There is something wrong with this update such as a violet colors which is racist to other users, this will need something optional or a general theme such as gray, white and black. I also notice that the walkman new update has not appropriate theme with google apps and xperia's UI.
