Default PlayMemories App & A7r3 - Focus Remotely not working

Hi!

I wanted to use the PlayMemories App with my A7r3 to focus the camera via tapping on the screen. It doesn't work. With older cameras remote focusing works.... Is there a way to make it work?

Thanks!

According to a Sony rep out here, the PlayMemories App is no longer supported by Sony, and most features are unavailable on newer cameras.

I see! It explains everything. Do we have any info what will replace it?

You need to enable pre-focus. Super annoying
