@gethinbwhich phone do you have? because the XZ2 Compact doesn't come with the What's New app anymore.

Re: Stop unwanted sony app recommendations

I have found a setting in "whats new" app, that gave me the option to turn off notifications, so with luck I can get a full night's sleep without my phone endlessly beeping at me !

Alternatively I guess I could try to remember to turn off both mobile data and Wi-Fi when I go to bed !!

I can't believe Sony make phones like this !!!
