HTC has officially rolled out the HTC Sense Companion to HTC U Ultra Devices today. The minor update allows users to access the new virtual assistant on their HTC U Ultra devices. HTC is pushing out the update in a phased manner, so users should start to see the assistant in some hours if not immediately.
The HTC Sense Companion is HTC’s answer to the Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri and Samsung’s upcoming Bixby. HTC claims that the AI on the Sense Companion leads and improves over time, based on your habits and needs . The update is free and is available via the Google Play store. While, not an interactive assistant like Apple’s Siri or Google’s Assistant the Sense Companion trans your updates, reminders, contacts , locations, etc and reminds you of things based on habits using the secondary display.
While still in nascent state, the companion, honestly looks quite like “Google Now” with the cards and location based recommendations for food and lifestyle.
