  • The HTC U11 on a beach

They all feature Google's Assistant, however, Alexa seems to be the more popular choice for smartphone users.

THE HTC U11 has become the first smartphone to receive Alexa support, which means users can ditch Google Assistant in favour of Amazon's virtual offering. It has slowly traversed to smartphones and is now present in the Huawei Mate 9 and the HTC U11.

A recent report revealed that the HTC U11's Edge Sense feature will be able to launch Alexa soon, and HTC has just announced that the company's "HTC Alexa" application is now available in the United States.

With the HTC Alexa app, you don't need to install all of the Amazon apps to experience everything.

Unfortunately for them, the Echo doesn't actually support mobile phone calls in the way described.

The company is also said to be working to improve voice input with new and better microphone technologies, although it is not clear exactly how Amazon is going to do it as of yet. You can also set the U11 to activate Alexa by squeezing the phone. You can even control music playback by just asking it to mute, stop playing music and even change the volume. Amazon Echo, on the other hand, did quite well when it came to its speakers.
