The Xperia gallery app receives KitKat support via an OTA update

It seems that select Xperia smartphones will receive an over-the-air update for their gallery app today. Although none of the Japanese company's smartphones runs the latest version of Android, version 5.4.A.0.12 of the Gallery app features "updates for Android 4.4.2". According to credible sources, who have tested the updated app on KitKat-powered devices, it now comes with the fullscreen immersive mode, which was introduced with the latest major iteration of El Goog's mobile platform.

Another improvement, brought with the OTA update, is the enhanced integration with Sony's cloud service for photos and videos, PlayMemories Online. The usual bug fixes and software performance improvements are on board, too.

In order to lay your hands on the renovated Xperia gallery app, you should head to the Sony Update Center on your beloved device and seize the over-the-air update, provided that your model is among the supported ones.

Received the update today, nothing has changed, and I can't see the "Swipe down from the top to exit full screen.".

But still, this means that the KitKat update is coming for us Xperia owners, good to know that.

All the extra features will only be seen if you're running android 4.4.2. Basically if you're running it on 4.3 you wont see any major difference. That's somebody extracted the apk and ran it on a 4.4 device , (if its a custom rom on a xperia device or another device I dont know )

Btw , my US unlocked varient ZL c6506 haven't got the update to 4.3
