As promised, HTC has pushed out an Alexa app for its HTC U11 smartphone, marking the first time that Amazon's smart digital assistant is available on phones as a fully fledged rival to the likes of Google Assistant and Siri.

So bring on the Echo 2.0 (although that's not what Amazon is calling the next-gen device, as for as we know.) A sleeker, shorter, better-sounding version of a device that already has been a game-changer seems like a no-brainer.

HTC has announced that Amazon Alexa functionality is officially rolling out to its latest flagship. It's all about consumer choice, and the HTC U11 provides it with HTC Sense Companion, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa. With Alexa, you can get fast access to media, facts, and your appliances without having to scroll through apps and menus.

The current Echo uses a seven far-field microphones' array to listen from a distance, but Google's Home only uses two with similar results thanks to software and acoustic modeling.

RBI counsel Darius Khambata said the steel firm had suppressed facts and misled the court to get a favourable decision. Essar contested a line in the RBI release which said NCLT will accord priority to these cases.

The arrival of Alexa on the HTC U11 is a match made in heaven. A new report suggests that shopping by voice - "Alexa, order a new pair of my favourite jeans" - is about to become a retail trend.

Companies have been trying to shoehorn the voice-powered Alexa assistant onto everything from smartwatches to cars, but strangely, there's one type of device that still lacks the kind of Alexa integration you'd expect: smartphones.

Amazon struck gold with its Alexa offering taking the market by storm, ushering in a new wave of products that try and make our lives that much easier. You can even control music playback by just asking it to mute, stop playing music and even change the volume. Otherwise, there are a few shortcuts to other settings like the official Amazon Alexa app or the Edge Sense trigger screen.

If you are the one who uses HTCU11, then there is good news for you guys. You dont have to do with with “Ok, Google”.

HTC Alexa doesnt support Alexa Deals, you need to have a real Echo speaker to take advantage of them.

Although Amazon Music and Audible audiobook are supported, third party music players like Pandora and Spotify are not. Until HTC and Amazon figure out a way to make Alexa more useful on the go, I'll be sticking with Google Assistant.

That's not to say there's a shortage of digital assistants from companies including Google, Apple, Samsung and others. At the time of publishing this new app is part of a deal with HTC and is only available in the United States on the HTC U11.
