I don't know how many tablets Verizon typically sells, especially if you limit that to non-iPads. But however many of you picked up the admittedly neat Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet from Big Red, check your status bar for an update alert. Today's software update adds something even neater: the ability to remotely play games on your PlayStation 4 over your home Wi-Fi network. You'll need the official Remote Play app and a Dual Shock 4 controller to take advantage of it.
OTA update 23.0.1.E.0.208 also includes "optimized touch sensitivity," better performance for users who encrypt their tablet, improved support for TalkBack (Google's accessibility service for the visually impaired), and minor UI tweaks to fonts, icons, and layouts. None of it is particularly crucial, and no, it doesn't include an update to Android: Verizon's version of the Tablet Z2 is running the same build of Android 4.4 that is was back in July. But it's hard to be too miffed about that, since the Wi-Fi version of the Tablet Z2 hasn't been upgraded to Lollipop, either.
Expect the update to go out in batches, so don't be surprised if it doesn't appear on your tablet immediately. As always, any root-level modifications may make it difficult or impossible to apply the update.
