A couple of weeks ago, Verizon announced an interesting OTA update for the Xperia Z2 Tablet.
The Xperia Z2 Tablet is an impressive device with a 10.1″ TFT with 1080 pixels, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory with microSD card support up to 128 GB. The tablet has two cameras, the rear one with a 8.1 MP sensor and the front-facing one with 2.2 MP. The device is waterproof and dustproof with IPX5/8 and IP5X certifications respectively.
The new software version is 23.0.1.E.0.208, and the most remarkable addition is the possibility to play games on your PlayStation 4 using the home Wi-Fi network. Of course, you will need the Remote Play app and the PS4 Dual Shock 4 controller to use it.
The full changelog has been posted by Verizon:
THE FOLLOWING ENHANCEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE:
• Introduction of PS4™ Remote Play functionality with PS4 DUALSHOCK®4 controller support.
• Optimized touch sensitivity with reduced chattering and improved sensitivity drift.
• Enhanced device encryption performance.
• Improved TalkBack accessory support.
• Font size, iconography and layout improvements.
The Xperia Z2 Tablet is still running Android 4.4 Lollipop, and there isn’t any news about a possible update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Verizon will release the update in waves, so maybe it will take some time to reach your device. Even if it’s not a major update, it’s recommended to be connected to a Wi-Fi network before starting the download. In addition, be sure to have the battery charged enough before the installation process starts.
When the update is complete, the software will automatically restart.
