HTC Zoe will be available to non-HTC smartphones this week
The Zoe app will be launched by HTC Creative Labs, a separate business unit that HTC set up not long ago. Led by Drew Bamford, HTC Creative Labs consists of 260 HTC employees based in Seattle, San Francisco, and Taipei. Essentially, this is HTC’s software arm that could help the company better compete with giants like Apple and Samsung.
For those who don’t know, HTC Zoe creates short clips using your photos and videos, even allowing you to add soundtracks to clips. You can see an official Zoe tutorial in the video below:
HTC didn’t say when BlinkFeed would be available to non-HTC devices. However, Drew Bamford confirmed that HTC Creative Labs was working on other software projects - and we’ll likely hear more on this soon.
