How to remove What's New ?
How to disable What's New?
How to disable "What's New" notifications, including notifications about itself.
(I have already tried app-settings "Allow peeking=no" and "Treat as priority=no". But notifications still appear for software updates even though I have disabled the apps for which the updates are for).

I have a Z2 tablet, SGP521 on Android 6.0.1 and I notice that there is no way to turn off irritating notifications from the Whats New App that I dont need or want. Can this app be disabled and/or removed?
Many thanks, Chris

it seems that in some markets you can disable it
settings > apps > whatsnew > disable

I have a Z3 Compact, and I've really had enough of receiving constant advertising popups of useless Sony products through the inane and annoying What's New app, which apparently cannot be disabled, or removed from my device. I don't care about the games, or stupid celebrity birthdays, or any of the other crap that pops up on the screen of the phone that I paid my hard earned money for. Why is this neccessary, and how can it be stopped?

Don't hate me Sony <3
For those of you who wish to get rid of some of the stock apps: Heres a template
You can get rid of more of the Sony ones, but I kept a few for my school assignments like the PSN network.
I don't do this happy puky rainbow... I hate life as it is, black white and blood..
You can disable Privilege Plus, and there's 5 additional apps I've installed myself.
Email and Calendar can go too.
It leaves you with Albums, Music, Video, Phone, Download, Messaging, Clock, Radio and Contacts and Camera
File Commander, Kobodo Bookythingo, LinkedIn, Facebook, Office Suite are gone too.
You don't need maps, or Authenticator or youtube:

Did my post get poleaxed?
Or did I only preview and forget to press send?

Then makes it possible, that's our point. We didnt buy Sony phone just to be annoyed by this stupid marketing software.
