Reviews From google play store

Was really good. Latest update caused one push of the up and down buttons on the remote to go from the top to the bottom of any menu instead going to the next item. App should open on the remote control, not the phones gallery


Great when it works. Mostly it is slow. It does not make the tv respond at all in most occasions. Frequent disconnects are annoying. I decided to use this as the physical remote drains battery like none other. Bravo Sony! Not!


Almost always turns the tv on with the first try. Turning off it takes 4, 5, 6 times or more. Very annoying. Tv is a x900e. Wish you could turn off the My Library feature. I never ever use it.


The app works well enough when connected. However, like someone mentioned at the beginning of October, the app will disconnect you after only a few minutes of not using it constantly. Once you are disconnected, it will not reconnect, unless maybe you uninstall the whole thing and start from scratch.


Voice control google assistant stopped working after latest update. very disappointed with japanese company. Customer care doesn't have a solution. Latest entrant oneplus tv works google assistant like charm..


Quite functional. I'd have preferred if it's primary function was as a TV remote rather than as some sort of social media thing slash video streamer.


While every notification on updates reads: 'Useful new function added!' I haven't seen new features since forever and I'm quite sure these updates are there to remind me that I have this app installed. Anyways, the app does the trick with my 2017 Bravia.


Not working on Android 10 Oneplus 7Pro connectivity issue. Unable to connect to network & Not recognizing my Sony tv device. Request the developer to look into the issue and resolve the same.


Since upgrade to Android 10, the remote doesn't work and the app doesn't recognize the sony Bravia television. Please look in to this issue and fix it at the earliest.


When I first installed it, this app was actually quite good. Now, every time there's an 'update' some feature or other is removed! Perhaps call them downdates...?


I needed it for entering text on a Sony TV. It worked perfectly.


Remote control function rarely works. Constant issues connecting to TV.


After last update the app is not able to connect to the sony bravia tv...not sure how can they release a buggy update


Plz Update audio and video codec no audio most of format.. I have Sony 4k TV no audio most of format ex (. Mkv) and video codec is bad very, slow, not responding... Using mx player so good TV... Default player sucks..


This rating is give by my side when you open A speed (+ & -) option to watch the video and Play audio songs Thanking you


Can you please put away of slowing down the movie. Good app. Thanks for this


Cannot connect to my Sony XBR900E anymore...it says device cannot be found on network even though my phone and tv is on same network


I can't find my device (Bravia TV 49X8500G) after use on my phone with android 10. Pls fixed it.


Says not connected to the wifi same network where as I have only one router that connects all my devices. Very disappointed


This is an Amazing App used for controlling Sony TV, this app works very perfect.


Good app for remote and view video from cellphone.


Please, add a possibility to control TV also using IR, since sometimes it's unable to connect the TV when it's in standby mode due to wifi connection troubles. And one more useful feature is sleep timer control button. Now it's required to go to home window and set it up via menu. It's unconfortable because I don't want to close working app on the tv and then open it again. Also I realized, that it's supported by the TV using third-party universal IR remote which has such button.


Installed the app because their cheaply-made remote broke. App is constantly disconnecting and not allowing me to reconnect. Deleted and reinstalled app, cycled tv power, restarted phone several times with no success. Sony has really become a mediocre brand if they are incapable of building a functional app - I will not use a Chinese brand, but Samsung must be better than this. What an embarrassment for this once great company!


This app needs to improve in every aspect. Last video app was very satisfied, we can see all videos and play easily by after updated version we have to find video in folders which we want to play and have no other options to change settings, u need to improve it as soon as possible because this version is irritating.


Doesn't work on Android 10. Finds a non-registered home device, but when I push the 'Add device' button it says 'Not connected to Wi-Fi Network. Connect to the same network as the device.' which I definitely am! My phone is a Pixel 2 XL


It's a good application for video and everything special


Great replacement when I misplaced my Sony remote


Everything works fine. Its cumbersome to connect but once its connected then it works fine. But one very annoying problem is that it doesnt connect when the mobile data is on... Its the biggest flaw... Just correct it and its a 5 star worthy app. Plz sony make it work.🥰


It says "not connected to the same wifi " It is. I reformmated 2 TV's I have and uninstalled/resinstalled app to no avail. Also. Please make app opening screen the remote control. That is all I want from this app


I connected using the same phone, it was on the registered devices, now I can't connect- error not connected to the same WiFi when I am on the same network. Uninstalled, reinstalled and nothing works. I use a pixel XL now, also have a pixel XL 2.


For pixel phone users, use it with your location on, otherwise it will not work. I was frustrated when it was not working. Wondering what was wrong till I found the solution.


This app was good, but the remote control ability seems to be touch and go after I updated my XBR-49X900E to the most recent TV firmware running it work sometimes, other times not... Remote control function broken in Android 10.


Useless app, I will never buy a Sony TV again.


NEW 10/10: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR FIXING. from 1 star to 5!: Old: it was great then it randomly stopped finding or registering my TV. I absolutely hate this app why did you guys push a new update?! nothing works now.


Zero support from Sony any their support team! Also not sure why my XZ3 has not received the app version 6 update, from the 10th July 2019. Update 6/08/2019 - never did receive 6.0.0. Did receive 6.0.1 today. I would like to see the "new" video notification completely removed, as not necessary and quite annoying to keep having to remove them all individually after a phone repair/restore. Also would be nice to be able to delete a video from within the app.


Dear Sony, please simplify this app. It should just start up in the remote control interface, instead of the TV channel schedule menu. Nobody watches live TV anymore


Am serious sony fan all my devises a Sony . 1)With video app in the Xperia Z3+ i could minimize the playing video while going thro other video i select which other video to play next which was great, in this & previous version its not possible, a very great feature dropped. Please restore that feature in the next immediate update. 2)Alternatively improve this app so that all videos run through like play list on mediago app in the next immediate update. 3)Apply 1&2 in the next update.


Since this is a remote control app please give the option to have the remote be the first thing to open when you open the app. I rarely use the app for looking at photos. It just makes sense to have the default be the remote control portion. Other than that it is a fantastic app, thank you!


This app worked fine on my Moto g6, it will not connect to my TV with my Pixel 3a. I use this as my TV remote.


Sony support very poor and never reply on here, or to emails. Also, why should customers have to install this separate app, to the default Sony video app, to be able to watch a video. This is a stupid idea. Listen, learn and improve Sony! Finally version 6 available on play store for my XZ, but not my XZ3, which seems very odd.


Really nice app and easy to use.


Stopped working. Can't use this app for anything. And it's a pretty lame app that you have to go dig for the remote to use the remote.


Seems to be broken on Android 10, claims TV is not on the same WiFi network


Very handy toolwith reliable app.


Can't find my TV in the "add device" setup. Previously work for my old Bravia TV, but fail after change to new KD-55X7500F.


Problems with Android 10. It cannot find the devices in the same network.


Used to be able to use as a remote control. Thanks for screwing it up and no longer offering this function.


Super unreliable, won't connect with tv on a routine basis.


it's very good but wish it would store all the videos under one single folder and play them back one after the other automatically


This app is awesome because it lets me control Sony TVs & Sony Blu-ray Players perfectly.


4k movies doesn't support all codec..., Doesn't make any sounds...


It's unusable App. I tried with devices and it didn't work.


Great apps try so many apps can't work but it is working great for my home theater


Remote does not connect anytime


Doesn't works on Android 10. Please make tv remote more easy to reach and use


Not working for KLV 32W672E.. Is this model KLV 32w672e Compatible or not..


Quite useful but dunno why it is not available for Android since version 6.0


Easy to use and intuitive. great when TV remote was spoilt or out of reach.


Works great. I would like to have an option to use Bluetooth instead of WiFi though.


Does not work well with the Xperia 1, one click on the remote makes 4 clicks. Used to work flawless on the Xperia XZ premium


It is a very very useful app dor sony TV, and the app is very user friendly


It works the 1st time. No juggling with settings.


Remote works fine with Bravia Android Tv but doesn't have gamepad feature, like offered by other companies


This is nothing compared to oppo's built-in remote control.


Stopped working a while ago. Tells me I can add a device, then when I try to it tells me I'm not on a wifi network?


Can not type using keyboard, useless app.


Worked for over a year with few issues, but recently stopped working after upgrading to Android 10 (Pixel 3), it can identify the TV but can't actually connect to it to control it! Tells me that I'm not connected to the same wi-fi network... That's nonsense because the TV was identified as being on the network by the app itself in the previous step! Sony, figure this out, the TV is beautiful, but the app is broken!


great but ridiculous it's discontinued


Works very good with Bravia...


Same issue with my Pixel XL 2 as other users have complained about. I'm connected to same WiFi as TV, but app says it isn't. Come on Sony, super rich company but can't make a good app in a time where there's an app for everything. TF! Listen to our issues, gather a team of smart app developers, and fix this. Shoot, have some college interns to do it and hire them on the spot if they can develop something better than this app. Please, of course!


There's so bad lags to use play MKV video format.. Would hou fix it..?


if this app is no longer supported, is there a replacement app to control our Sony TVs through smartphones?


Used in Sony TV.


Dont buy Sony... Poor support for Android smart TV with scale back of app as well. Shame on Sony.


Sound 🔊 better but not outo play


this takes about 5-10 minutes to connect to the WiFi and TV, it just says "connecting" and they are on the same WiFi, which is very strong. When the app is finally connected, it's very glitchy and alwt starts on my photos. Also, when you lock your phone and turn it back on, or if you go to another app and go back, it takes 5 minutes to reconnect again. You're better off buying a remote


App takes forever to connect to tv. Then, when it does connect you have to choose remote from a menu so it takes even longer. If you look at a different app and come back, it takes forever to connect again. Really inconvenient and a poor customer experience. Sometimes it doesn't connect to the tv at all. So you're probably thinking why not just use the remote that came with the tv? Because it also has issues including line of sight due what's supposed to be a compatible sound bar.


decent app, my experience is to use as remote control for AV receiver. HUGE (but simple for Sony to fix) FLAWS : 1) should be able to decide startup / default screen as preference. I primarily/only want to use this as a remote control, yet every time the app starts up it wants to start with my pictures and videos. 2) The app doesn't respect your wishes or privacy, there is no way to limit or direct the folders it searches for you photos and videos. Otherwise, the convenience of having the AV remote on your phone and or an old tablet/phone left around to supplement the remote that inevitably gets lost is quite nice. Very responsive. A few changes listed above would take this app to the next level.


Very handy remote control


The app is good but there are some negatives. It takes long to establish connection to tv when on the same network and sometimes requires the tv to turn on in order to get the connection. On the latest version the app keyboard does not activate when a text field is selected on the tv in youtube. This worked fine in previous combination of youtube/app. The option to scale size and see more options would be nice. This happened to me by accident/bug and that is how i saw how useful it would be.


Defaults to photos. Why? Often won't connect to TV, even after finding TV tells me I'm on different network. Pointless app. Uninstalling.


it gets better with every update. I just upgraded Sony firmware to Android 8.0. and had some hickups with voice and text input and had to remove and reload and disconnect all past devices. now it works well. looking forward to update 6.0. I hope it will have a guide on the app using a tablet. how about providing DVR function with a USB hard drive plugged into the TV, but I guess this would be limited with only one tuner on the TV.


It's great. But it is my opinion to add some features like gamepad for this App because it would be so great that we use the TV app for gaming. Thank you.


The App is quite nice since the remote control that came with the TV is no longer working properly, it was really good alternative/replacement. Just a suggestion though, would you guys be able to take full advantage of the KEYBOARD of our Android Devices, that would be superb in terms of typing things like searching for movies or videos in Netflix or Youtube for example. Thanks and more power!!! Please add a keyboard feature in the app, thanks...


Great for Sony Bravia Android Smart TV


What seems like a great concept (a software remote by Sony so I can operate my Sony TV from my smart phone) is, unfortunately, a media library first that only secondarily has a remote I have to further select to use. And even when I finally get to the remote the button selections only work 60% of the time.


Remote only for the wifi enabled tv


It has all the function that the original tv remote has. But it is not just a tv remote control... that's why I gave 4 stars. because I don't need this other function. If were just the tv's remote control, would be perfect.


app sucks. older apps for sony tv remotes were always better, just dont work with this version of android. it would be nice to have a remote app that isnt bloatware. would not recomend, better 5o just walk to the tv than use this bulky one size fits none app. i have multiple sony tvs.


I wanted a TV remote app and this app seems to work well with my Sony smart tv. However, there are a couple of wonky issues. First, it opens to a library of the videos on my phone. Why doesn't it open directly to the remote? This needs to be fixed. Also, all phones and tablets already have a video player. Why would anyone want to use your app to play their videos? Especially when your app plays them on my phone and not on the TV! I cannot give you a better rating until these issues are corrected.


When it works, it works fine. It does not consistently work, which causes some challenges in using the remote. It will gray out the tv and not connect at random times.


It easy to configure to my Sony tv & movie theater, great application.


App works no issues for me but is missing one major functionality that could set it apart from the default physical remote control, a keypad! Although available, it is not compatible with major apps installed on my Sony TV such as YouTube or Netflix (or the other way around). So still resorted to use the arrows and okay buttons to select characters from the on-screen keypad. Too many apps out there with little value because the development is so diluted.


There is room for improvements: It needs buttons for Recording, and for listing recorded programs. The Volume control should be a slider instead of the buttons IMHO. This list can be much longer


OMG!!! Thank you!!! My remote just stopped working last week and I've tried everything I could think of to get access to my Sony TV. Nothing worked and I been without TV in my room for a week it's been torture. Then I found this app its connected to my TV but I had no way to select ok till my Boo told me to connect mouse to my TV. BAM!!! I have TV in my room and didn't have to purchase another Google TV remote. Thank you!!


wide cross device using with Android and the bluray home theater. sadly the usage is limited and Youtube built in app no longer functioning. but this app allows device registration within the smartphone.


Terrible. App uses excuse to have access to all your photos, contacts for a worthless viewing feature you will never use. It also difficult to get the remote feature to the front. Garbage app.


Needs development, looks like an Alfa version, connected to my 65xf9005 alright but when I tried features of the interface, TV stopped responding frequently, after trying couple of features in the program latency in response makes it completely useless. voice input stalls on screen, can send text to internet browser but cannot send enter, completely useless without enter, cannot send text to third party apps, please let me know when you are done with the development and release a version that is more like a complete app


please add Ac3 or dts audio codec support to play mkv files...


It only work on Sony
