HTC Launches Vive Phone Companion App For Android Smartphones

The HTC Vive virtual reality headset, which began taking pre-orders in March this year, has now got its own sidekick application called the Vive Phone Companion for Android smartphones to keep clients upgraded with all the vital notices related to the virtual reality.


The new application by HTC stays associated with the HTC Vive VR headset with the assistance of Bluetooth and requires the wearable gadget's PC programming for the setup process. The application sends clients notices for approaching calls, messages, date-book updates while wearing the Vive. It also gives them a chance to react to missed calls, send fast answers to instant messages, and get back to the sender.


"Don't miss what's important IRL while you're in VR. To get essential notifications in the world of virtual reality, just connect your phone with your HTC Vive. Notifications about phone calls, text messages, and calendar events pop up without interrupting play and appear in the Vive tab on your System Dashboard so you can view them later too," says the app description page on Google Play.
