Re: Sony theme engine

No it doesn't and that is disappointing. I have several paid themes and when attempting to download it states your device is not compatible with this version  There also is no option to change theme in home settings. Lastly when using "What's New" app and hitting, take me to my themes, there is no response  I hope Sony intends to update the theme engine if Pie allows it.

This was not Sony who removed it. Android 9.0 Pie does no longer support themes.

All Themes published by Xperia don't work on XZ3 as themes but simple background images

When are the Sony apps going to become compatible with the new version of Android?

Where are we supposed to report bugs to Sony?

That should be obvious, Google has an effective bug reporting regime in their software, Sony prefers to fly blind.

So, themes can not be applied to XZ3? 

 

Xperia Lounge suggested that the ultime theme is tested on XZ3 too: how is it possible?
