Earlier when Google announced Android M at Google I/O 2015, multi-window mode was spotted in the earlier developer preview images released which was not seen in the final release of Android Marshmallow on devices.

It looks like a simple tweak in the build.prop file of your Xperia smartphone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow will enable Multi-Window mode on your device.
