Today Sony has started updating the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tabet to the final version of Android KitKat 4.4.4, the update is coming via OTA (over the air) and is considerably small in size being a bug fix update. Though android 4.4.4 isn’t a major update it hasn’t stopped Sony from bringing their self baked features to the Z2 family, there are plenty of small additions that you can learn about in detail below.
Features of Android 4.4.4 for Sony Xperia Z2 & Z2 Tablet
- PS4 Remote Play : Added functionality to act as a remote screen and to connect to and control your games on the PlayStation 4.
- Sound : Support for built in (via 3.5mm audio jack) Hi-Res Audio playback from both PCM, DSD files and USB Hi-Res playback. The WALKMAN app also adds Sony’s DSEE HX technology, enhancing the sound of your MP3, AAC or Music Unlimited tunes, restoring the experience sometimes lost in compression by these formats.
