HTC Zoe (Beta) app now available to select non-HTC devices


HTC has released several of its unique Sense apps into the Play Store, but to date they’ve only been available to HTC hardware. That’s changing today, though, with the launch of Zoe (Beta).

The new Zoe (Beta) app was created by HTC Creative Labs, HTC’s internal team that’s responsible for other apps like BlinkFeed and the Sense 6 user experience. The Zoe (Beta) app allows users to gather photos and videos that they’ve captured, add a theme and custom soundtrack and spit out a brief highlight video. Those clips can then be shared to the Zoe community, where users can comment and remix them. Zoes can also be shared to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and more.


Zoe (Beta) is currently compatible with all HTC Sense 6 devices as well as the Nexus 5, LG G2, G2 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S5 and Note 3. Expect that compatibility to be expanded to more Android 4.4 devices once the beta period comes to an end this fall.

It’s great to see HTC making its apps available to non-HTC devices because it gives even more people to try out special apps that they otherwise may never get to use. The move is also an interesting one because it gives HTC’s own hardware one less exclusive feature to tout. Of course, that may not be a huge deal depending on how many HTC apps become available to all. We’ll just have to wait and see which other apps HTC Creative Labs launches.

If you download the Zoe (Beta) app, be sure to share your thoughts with us!
