Xperia lounge shows decommission end aug

Hi guys,

My lounge states that sony are decommissioning the lounge at the end of August. 

This has no explination or suggested replacement 

I would have at least expected them to give a  bit more information

Hi @Ianbro, sorry for the late reply.

That is correct, but I don't have any further information about why this is the case.

The Xperia Lounge application was very market specific, so you may want to check with your Local support team, but the only information I have is that it will be decommissioned by the end of August 2019.

Just tried to remove the app as it is now the end of August

The app won't remove as it seems like it is part of the os. 

Come on sony either support it or remove it. 

If thia involves an update so be it.

Re: Xperia lounge shows decommission end aug

Hi again @Ianbro, sorry for the late reply.

It is not possible to uninstall the preinstalled Lounge app. You can however disable the app if you go to Settings > Apps & notifications > App info/See all xx apps > Lounge > Disable.

If you are on Android 7.0 or earlier, it's Settings > Apps > Lounge/Xperia Lounge.
