HTC Sense Companion hits Google Play

HTC Sense Companion AI assistant app now available on Google Play

The digital assistant that arrived back in January with the high-end U Ultra and U Play handsets by HTC is now freely available for other Android devices via the Google Play store.

HTC unveiled the Sense Companion digital assistant back in January when this app was shown on the U Ultra and U Play handsets. Now, users of other Android handsets can also enjoy the benefits of this AI-driven app without having to purchase one of the new HTC U smartphones, since HTC Sense Companion has just been posted on Google Play.

Although it was expected to support voice interaction, HTC Sense Companion is not capable of doing that for now. Its list of features includes the ability to provide a weekly step count report, restaurant recommendations based on the user's location, info cards with reminders, and so on.

HTC Sense Companion arrived on Google Play yesterday and less than 500 users installed it so far. Strange enough, the Google Play page does not reveal a minimum Android version requirement, only saying that it "Varies with device" for now. However, the app has a five-star rating, since 66 out of those 68 users who rated it decided that HTC Sense Companion is a five-star app.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
