HTC Vive offers Virtual Reality via companion app
HTC is the first handset maker to offer Virtual Reality (VR) features as part of its companion app for iOS and Android. A new HTC Vive companion app is now available for free download via iOS App Store as well as Google Play Store.
The new companion app for Vive allows access to a bunch of communication features including the ability to answer phone calls, view text messages, and check your calendar reminders within the virtual world, The Verge reports.
The Android version of the app is reportedly more functional than its iOS counterpart. The former supports the ability to send predefined responses to incoming calls and texts, which is an exclusive feature that no other VR headset is offering currently.
In related news, Apple is said to be creating its virtual reality headset whose release time is still a mystery. Interested users can go ahead and download the HTC Vive Companion app for free via iTunes App Store or Play Store.
