For this to work you need a launcher that supports it. And at the moment it is not the Sony one. Try the Google launcher. It works here.

Same issue here. Holding on an app just gives me the option to delete from the home screen. Is there something we need to enable?

Ah so I am right we should have that feature then? Yeah same problem here. I tried the apps that actually support it but nothing.  That's not good you are having the same problem. I'm Mt really sure mate if we need too. When I've looked online and seen other people's they don't say you need to enable anything. But Maybe we do then.

Could possibly be something as simple as the actual app needing updated or perhaps your service provider whilst 'tweeking' the actual software update have altered this....i would try uninstalling the app then a fresh reinstall & test Thinking Face

Hiya mate I know what to do. You need to change the launcher from Xperia home to Google. But I don't like how it is when u open the app menu, u got to scroll down for your apps
