Yup, even the name is dumb, why replace Walkman and Movies with Music and Videos, to be like all the million other devices? Originality made buy buy an Xperia, if that's gone, what stops me from buying a windows phone device for example, or nexus?

Re: Walkman vs Play Music

So it seems that afterall they will change the name to "Music". How lame, who is the person taking this stupid decision. I preffered Sony for the fact that they were music oriented. Instead of implementing useful stuff, like better sound enhancements, a sleep timer perhaps, more supported formats and optimized performance, they are changing the name, Goodbye Walkman, welcome AIMP. It seems Sony has started investing in stupid ideeas and people. CONGRATULATIONS on disrespecting the walkman history also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walkman

Re: Walkman vs Play Music

That means u have same apk name. U can use on any mobile "Music" and on Xperia devices "Walkman". I don't know if thats a fake for the moment until it will be renamed to walkman. Lets discuss that with sony guys.

Re: Walkman vs Play Music

Well, now it happened, Walkman app is finally ruined. I don't mind the name, who cares what the app is called. What i mean is the discontinuation of Music Unlimited service and replacing it with... NOTHING! What's the benefit of linking your SEN and Spotify accounts? Well, you get nice Spotify logo on the Walkman app's side menu, but there's nothing you can do with it but launch Spotify app. DIFFERENT APP?!?!? With Music unlimited, you could use same app and same UI for your own library and streaming services, SEAMLESSLY. What were you thinking?

 

Goodbye Walkman and Welcome Google Play Music. Yet another reason less to buy Sony phone.

Google Play Music instead of Walkman

Hi,

 

1. Is it possible to control the Walkman App like - Search and Play music like Google Now can do with Google Play Music?

2. If not can I change to using the Google Play Music as my default music app

 

Currently if I install Google Play Music, I see all kinds of issues with playing music with Google Play music. I use the Tasker App to automate a lot of stuff on my phone. For example both the Google Play and Walkman app will not play any music sometimes or both will get triggered to play music.

 

Is there a clean way of defaulting the Music app from Walkman to Google play music? I love the Walkman App but I haven't seen it integrate well with Voice commands.

 

Thanks
