  • Combines the video, album and music apps in the media player app
  • Note: After the update, only the music and media player apps are displayed in the app menu, but all of the content of the video, album and music apps.
  • Adds support for HEVC 100 / 120Hz for USB video playback
  • Removes the WPS function
  • Adds support for the menu tree for Android 9 Pie Setting

Sony notes that this is a staggered rollout and it may take a while for all TV models to receive it. The company recommends leaving the Automatic Software Download option enabled to ensure a smooth transition when the update hits the TVs. To enable this option, press the HELP button on the remote control, then select System Software Update> Automatic Software Download. Alternatively, users can choose the USB flash drive method if they don’t want to wait. Instructions are available on the company’s website.
