Sony Mobile has announced that it is terminating the “PlayMemories Online” feature from the Xperia Album application. PlayMemories Online offered free storage allowing users to back up their photos and videos. Sony is now sending emails to users confirming that the service will end on 31 March 2017.
After 31 March 2017, all PlayMemories Online will be deleted. In light of this, Sony has provided a tool, which you can download here, that will allow users to download all of their stored content onto their computer.
To continue accessing your PlayMemories Online after 30 September 2016, you will need to make sure that you have updated the Album application to version 7.9 or later. The latest version released has build number 7.9.A.0.4. Further details on this big change to the Album app can be found here.
