Walkman. Genre based music option?

Hello everyone! Just bought the Z3 Compact and i'm rarring to check out the music.On my other phones i used stock android app or 3rd party music app, and when choosing music, it gave me the option of artist,songs, folder and genre. I can't find it or how to choose genre when choosing my music. Is it there???  Thank you

Sort music fles by genres.

Dear Sony,

I have Z1 Compact, 4.4.4, build. 157, Walkman version 8,5.A.0.6, I want to make you a suggestion to improve your app.
Could you please add a new function in the left menu to sort the music files by genre? Becuase I like to edit every music file (put a cover, change the name to look better, add the details I need via PC and mp3tag), but with your app I am unable to add a genre when I edit a song and also there isn't a function to sort by genre.
I had Nokia N9 (with a Meego software that is old and dead) and I was able to sort things by genre, by now on a Sony device, and running Android, I am unable to do this. I know that I can search on Google Play to download an app that can do this, but I really don't want, I want to use your WALKMAN app. I know also that I have a stupid function that is called "Sens Me" but it really don't help. I know that I could make my playlist, but I have 400 songs and I can't sort every one of them by genres. Please, bring us this important function. Talk to your developers! Thank you!

Genre Sort

Hi.. I speak spanish, so sorry my english.

Congratulations, the Walkman app is excelent.. But isn't the best, because dont have a Genre sort, a feature very important into a music player.

I think more People feel the same...

Re: Genre Sort

Genre support! i really couldn't believe the walkman didn't have this feature- It keeps the walkman app just shy of being the excellent media player it was meant to be

I too would greatly appreciate having this option added to the app. Sadly seeing that the original post is from so long ago, I have little to no hope that it will come to fruition. Regardless I am posting here in support of it.
