On your Xperia™ tablet (excluding Xperia ™ Tablet S), you can receive call notifications and view your Xperia™ phone’s text messages. While connected via Xperia Link™, you will not miss a phone call or text message even if your phone is in your pocket or bag.

Please install the latest version of Xperia Link™ to both devices from this page.
