I'm also pretty disappointed that this widget was gone it was so nice on my Z3 and my z5 I thought surely it would be in the xz premium.

I also miss the album widget on my new XZs. And strange enough I got the camera widget, which would show up after a day or two after installing the apk, after I got it from third party. Then it was suddenly there and it works like on my old Sony. But not the same with the Album (or Foto and Video, as it was called later), after installing the apk, it doesn't show, even after restarts and waiting a day or two.
Sony does itself a bad job this way!!

Wow, what a disappointment! I just switched to an XA1 - it's the third Sony phone I've had, because I find the software and hardware great. I loved the album widget for quickly finding and sharing photos and to find out it has been scrapped is a real bummer. Let's hope there's a good alternative somewhere... Any suggestions welcome!

@Quester: as the initial poster suggested, this is a slideshow, and doesn't have the same kind of simple carousel function of the Photos and Videos widget. It seems bizarre, but I can't find anything else to do the job, and old widget .apks don't work either.
Such a shame - finding recent shots used to be so easy!

Same for me. I'm very disapointed that it has been removed.
I think however that it would be very nice for Sony to publish the source of those abandonned widgets in GitHub or another source repository, so other developers could rebuild them.

Idem passage du Z5 c au XZ1 c et disparition du widget photo et vidéo. J'ai cherché longtemps une alternative mais rien. Sony pouvez-vous faire une mise à jour pour remettre ce widget très important. Merci
