Amazon's Alexa is now on the HTC U11

Amazon's Alexa is now on the HTC U11

Wednesday recommend that anyone who is interested in buying into the Amazon Echo ecosystem should definitely enable HTC Alexa to try out the home assistant as a way to try Alexa before buying an Echo.

The cylindrical Amazon Echo Dot on your counter plays a soundbite from the president's latest news conference followed by a voice memo from your mom. Amazon encourages shoppers to sign up for the 30-day free trial to capture the deals, and that strategy appears to have paid off as, "More new members joined Prime on July 11 than on any single day in Amazon history", according to the company's press release.

It can also control several smart devices using itself as a home automation system seen on Huawei mate 9 is now here for the HTC U11. "OK Google" is still more reliable.

You can temporarily block alerts for messages and calls on one or more of your supported Echo devices using the Do Not Disturb feature. Android 7.1 Nougat comes pre-installed on this phone, and on top of it, you'll be able to find HTC's Sense UI. However, this will change soon as localized versions of Alexa will land on other markets too soon. This is key in creating the best assistant as phones can teach the AI a lot more about a person.

Among the biggest hits of the annual event were Amazon's Echo speakers and other Alexa devices. That doesn't invalidate the core question though, especially as Amazon Echo, Google Home, and their offshoots increasingly gain abilities and become more integral to everyday life. All of the Alexa interactions are audio-based: you say a command and Alexa's generic female voice will respond.

The first interesting thing about the Alexa offering is that it can actually live right alongside Google Assistant.

Renato Sanches set to leave Bayern Munich for AC Milan
According to Sky Sports , Milan want their option to buy to be set at €40 million-just €5 more than Bayern paid 12 months ago. Several top clubs have shown an interest in signing the Portuguese midfielder this summer, so he is not short of options.

This particular update brings the HTC phone Alexa plus a new visual feedback style. If you're not invested in Amazon and just want a general-purpose assistant for your phone, Google Assistant is still the go-to choice until Alexa can improve its on-phone experience. It can connect easily to Amazon's retail website and let your shop for products, by just using a voice-input.

To set the thing up, U11 users have to install the update on a stable network and then tap on the Alexa app.

The U11's Alexa feature is available from the Google Play Store for devices in the United States starting today and will come to the UK and Germany later this summer.
