Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update brings New Function to Xperia Handsets

Sony has just started to roll out Android 4.4.2 KitKat-based firmware for its mid-range Xperia T2 Ultra and T2 Ultra Dual – there’s nothing special about that. More and more devices are daily updated to this Android 4.4.2 version, but there is something that we have missed to notice in the first place. This update seems to bring a new function to Xperia handsets.

New Sony Function which Lets us Move Apps to the SD Card

We like its changes, we also like the new Sony exclusive apps, but we have never imagined that the company prepared us a new function coming with this update, a function which lets us move apps to the SD card. All you have to do is to click on an individual app within Settings > Apps and you’ll immediately see a new option that says to “Move to SD card”.

Within Settings > Apps, Sony has also added another column called “On SD card”, showing at a glance which of your apps can be found in the SD card.

Will we See this Function on More Sony Xperia Devices?

To be honest, this is an unexpected move, especially from Sony. It is true that Sony’s entry level Xperia models such as T2 Ultra and T2 Ultra Dual were not so successful, but we like to see that the manufacturer is preparing us something fresh.

And the idea doesn’t sound at all bad, so we can only expect this apps to SD card new function to be included in the upcoming Sony Xperia E1 and Xperia M2 KitKat updates as well. And the story goes the same for the premium Xperia Z, especially taking in consideration that some of these handsets are already seeing Android 4.4.4.

We’ll find out soon enough as the new Sony updates start to roll and be sure that we’ll keep you updated. Just stay tuned for more!
