Timeshift removed after update to Android 7

I like the Timeshift features, but it removed after the update to Android 7. Is there anyway I could install it. Try on google store, its not available for Android 7.. What can I do?

Perhaps contact Sony directly >>> Local support

That's strange. My phone, XZ, is in 7.1.1 now and I still have the Timeshift Burst. I mean I can still install it on my phone.Screenshot_20170521-001710.png

Re: Timeshift removed after update to Android 7

This is what we got as info:

Starting from Xperia™ XZs, the Add button is no longer available in the camera's CAMERA APPS mode. The reason for removing the feature is that the Camera Add-on API project is no longer being supported and will not get any further updates. This means that no new camera apps will be made available on Google Play™.

Re: Timeshift removed after update to Android 7

I have to admit that im pretty disapointed that timeburst was removed since it was the camera app that I used most frequently on my previous phone the Z1. Are there any plans to reintroduce this feature or some alternative way to get the same functionality without resorting to 3rd party apps?
