What is Android™?

Your Xperia smartphone from Sony runs on the Android platform. Android phones can

perform many of the same functions as a computer and you can customize them to your

own needs. For example, you can add and delete applications, or enhance existing

applications to improve functionality. On Google Play™, you can download a range of

applications and games from a constantly growing collection. You can also integrate

applications on your Android™ phone with other applications and with online services

that you use. For example, you can back up your phone contacts, access your different

email accounts and calendars from one place, keep track of your appointments, and

engage in social networking.
Android™ phones are constantly evolving. When a new software version is available and

your phone supports this new software, you can update your phone to get new features

and the latest improvements.

Your Android™ phone is pre-loaded with Google™ services. To get the most out of the

provided Google™ services, you should have a Google™ account and sign in to it when you

first start your phone. You also need to have Internet access to use many of the features in


New software releases may not be compatible with all phones.
