Verizon updates Xperia Play to Android 2.3.4

updated 12:00 pm EDT, Tue May 1, 2012

Xperia Play gets a number of bug fixes, video autofocus, more

Verizon has just detailed an over-the-air update that it has began rolling out for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play smartphone. Version 4.0.2.E.0.57 brings with it Android 2.3.4 and its native changes, along with some of Verizon's own customizations. For example, users will now get the Verizon Wireless Video on Demand app preloaded, while VZ Navigator is updated with new 3D maps.

Users also get a better delivery method for preloaded games and the music player now brings fast forward and rewind control over a Bluetooth connection.

Otherwise, screenshots can be captured using a long-press of the power button, and the recommended contacts now populate correctly when in the dialpad screen. The issue of the handset remaining in landscape mode after charging has also been eliminated.

The camera will now continuously autofocus when recording 720p videos, and the right trigger will capture a photo.

Finally, security can be increased by turning off the Mobile Hotspot ID broadcast, and the phone now supports the Wireless Emergency Alerting System.
