Older Sony TVs Upgraded With New Android Interface
“Sony Android TV just got a whole lot better.” That was the message sent out to various Bravia owners a month back, promising changes in store.
The new redesign of Android TV has finally come to Bravia owners, after the company seemingly backflipped on its January stance, when it told owners there were “no concrete plans” to add the new Android to pre-2020 TV. Now there are a number of older televisions with the upgrade, spanning back to 2016 models.
The old menu system has been replaced with ‘search, ‘home’, ‘discover’ and ‘apps’ options, with recommendations “based on what you’ve watched in the past and your interests from your Google account, or from trending and popular content in your region.”
As Sony explains: “The tailored suggestions are organised into topics and genres, making it easier to find your next favourite movie or show.”
Below are the models that have the new update, in reverse chronological order.
W800, Z9H, Z8H, A9S, A8H, X95H, X92H, X91H, X90H, X85H, X81H, X80H, X75H, Z9G, A9G, A8G, X95G, X90G, X87G, X85G, X83G, X81G, X80G, W80G, A9F, Z9F, A8F, X90F, X87F, X85F, X83F, X80F, X78F, X75F, W80F, A1, X95E, X94E, X93E, X90E, X85E, X82E, X80E, X75E, Z9D, X83D, X80D, S80D, X75D, X70D
