Don't get lost in dense manuals to keep your Android in working order, download Sony PC Companion and let it do the heavy lifting for you.

PC Companion contains Xperia Transfer, a tool for moving content from an i Phone to your new Xperia device.

"As soon as I updated to Marshmallow, I keep getting the "Unfortunately Google Play Store has stopped..." and the message keeps coming up every 5 seconds.

I tried clearing the cache, deleting data, uninstalling, disabling the app, force closing, signing out of google and back on. I keep getting the pop up non-stop and it happened as SOON as it updated to Marshmallow," noted a user on the support forum. Tried uninstalling the updates in /settings/apps/google play store, also tried installing the through chrome. Spoke with customer support and running the "repair" option from Sony Bridge was the only advice they offered.

PC Companion also offers device software updates, contacts and calendar management, and a backup and restore feature for your phone content (availability of applications depends on your phone and operator).

You can also transfer and organize your media content using Media Go. The newest version also allows users to back-up their Xperia device to a computer, along with a restore function. First of all, Sony has widened support to include compatibility with all Sony Xperia models back to the Xperia J.Over time, more applications can be added and downloaded when made available by Sony or your operator.If you are looking for the Sony Xperia Mac Companion please click here.
