Welcome!

 

The Whats's New Q&A session is now live so feel free to start ask any question you want regarding the What's New application.

All spam or off-topic content will be removed from this Q&A topic.

After the Q&A session this topic will be locked and all posts will remain.

 

So the way this Q&A session works is that I along with 4 other guys from the What's New team are sitting together and we will read and reply to every post that comes in.

 

The What's New application team.

 

Miro - Test architect

Bo - Developer

Re: What's New Live Q&A session

Here's a question - This app is full of apps I'll never use and have no need for - Is it at all possible for the app to mention apps that I use or alternatives to apps I use or include news stories instead of having to go to the official Sony blog to read up on these things

 

Edit - Include an option to tailor my preferences

This is not something that is available today but its in discussion and we are considering to add more options for customizing content in the application.

Re: What's New Live Q&A session

Whats new and Sony select are virtually identical - Why not merge the two and as said include an option to set personal preferences

That's a great idea to merge Sony Select and What's New and in fact that's something we have done in the What's New release for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Slightly smiling Face

@Thommo Could you please elaborate what kind of application recommendation you would like to see in What's New?

Re: What's New Live Q&A session

I'd like to see it know what apps I use and offer alternatives - Have the ability to work along side the Playstore and pull information from it - You could also if possible notify me of deals based on my shopping habits like Amazon does - Not all will welcome this hence the option to untick such notifications of deals and as I don't play games especially Playstation games then I personally find this or deem it as spam

Thank you @Thommo for clarifying and for giving us feedback.
