Xperia Transfer Mobile Z5 Compact to XZ2 Compact



I'm having troubles transfering apps via the Xperia Transfer Mobile app. I can transfer everything except apps. It says that it is not supported with this device. What can I do? Last time I switched between a Z2 and Z5 compact it went all extremely smooth. I have tried with wifi driect and that doesn't work. I can upload the apps to the cloud with the Z5 Compact but i can not download them to the XZ2 Compact.

I think Google changed something in Android Pie that doesn't allow moving apps like that. it was possible when the phone was on Oreo but not anymore.
