HTC Sense Companion hits Google Play
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.
