Video app update 9.2.A.0.6 for Xperia Z2

Hi,

I have just updated my video app to 9.2.A.0.6 on my xperia Z2. What I am noticing is that I no more have a video loop on the app home screen for my last played video. It used to look cool and was available on all the previous updates. I am referring to the space on the very top where now it only shows an image of a girl and a boy with a balloon. I am not sure whether it is a bug or sony has removed that feature.

Open the Movies app then tap the 3 dots then Settings then tick the box, Show last played video on Movies home

Hi Thommo. Thanks for your reply.

Just to mention, the name has already been changed from Movies to Video from last few updates. And I am afraid I do not have any such option that you mentioned in video app settings.

So I've just updated my app and yes that feature has been removed - Nothing else I can do except to say for feedback you would need to contact Xperia care

That is really really sad.. I hope someone from Sony sees this post and take an action to bring back the feature. I like the swipe to close feature but home screen used to look much cooler with video being played on top on previous version.

It was removed because now you get the feature wgere you can minimize videos to bottom corner and browse for more content (similar to YouTube), I think it would be very heary on phone resources to have a minimized video, a top screen preview video and keep browsing more videos.
