HTC USA releases software update for the U11, adds Alexa support

With no smartphone to showcase Amazon's digital darling, the development of the smart speaker was inspired.

Even though the HTC U11 is the first to offer Amazon's Alexa to its users, it definitely won't be the last one.

The new assistant is very skilful with about 15,000 skill support and more are to be added soon. When enabled, you can activate Alexa without touching your phone as long as it is already unlocked.

Consumers are still anxious about security and privacy issues, however, when buying things on a voice-controlled device, the study says. It's great to have a full Amazon Echo experience on a phone like the HTC U11 that also has a solid speaker system. But Thompson detailed, "In the future, they're probably gonna record all the time once we get more used to them". But, so can Google Home, Apple HomePod and a bunch of other smart speakers. Though Huawei revealed its support for Amazon Alexa on the Mate 9 during the ending of March, still that requires that one launching the Huawei Alexa app in other to commence the voice assistant.

Call of Duty WWII Zombies Mode: Sledghammer Is Disappointed With The Leak
The dev studio has already revealed its involvement on the latest installment in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty : WWII . However, Sledgehammer has been rather tight-lipped about the game's upcoming zombie mode .

Twitter user @ChengmingAlpert noticed a mention of Alexa in the "What's New" section of the Play Store listing for the Edge Sense app, and sure enough, there's a new setting to pick Alexa as the default assistant.

Amazon has been critical in driving the growth in voice-controlled devices by offering such products at different prices, making it easier for consumers to try out the technology. That's right - they think these 10 stocks are even better buys. Now, thanks to this application, you can now also listen to Amazon Music & Audible, receive flash news briefings, weather info, manage shopping lists, to-do lists, and so much more. As the HTC Sense Companion provides non-spoken suggestions and reminders based on its owner's behavior, while Google Assistant is unparalleled when it comes to the asking of generic questions. More importantly, it can not really utilize the strengths of a smartphone, unlike other voice assistants.

You can not interrupt Alexa by saying “Alexa, stop” while shes rambling, press the back button to do this.

Alexa has been estimated to hold a dominant 70% market share in the United States, outselling Google Home 3-to-1. Amazon still needs to work with developers if it ever wants Alexa to be considered as a competitor to Assistant and Siri.
