    Controlling accessories and settings with Smart Connect™

    Use the Smart Connect™ application to set what happens in your device when you connect or disconnect an accessory. For example, you can decide to always start the FM radio application when you connect a headset.

    You can also set Smart Connect™ to read out incoming text messages. Or you can use the application to set a specific action or a group of actions to launch on your device at certain times of the day. For example, when you connect your headset between 7am and 9am, you can decide that:
    • The FM radio application starts.
    • Your favourite social networking app opens, for example, Facebook.
    • The ring volume is set to vibrate.

    With Smart Connect™, you can also manage accessories such as Xperia™ SmartTags or a watch from the Sony SmartWatch series. Refer to the User guide of the specific accessory for more information.

    Note

    If you are using a device with multiple users, you must log in as the owner, that is, the primary user, to use the Smart Connect™ application.
