Zoe to go live next week
Last week one of our very own expressed his frustration why HTC has taken so long to release its Zoe app, comparing it to some sort of bloatware. We know that HTC has had plans to release its apps like BlinkFeed and Zoe to other Android smartphones. And now the company is about to execute on that plan: HTC is expected to release a beta of its Zoe camera software later this week according to Recode and these rumors where quickly confirmed by Drew Bamford, who’s leading the Creative Labs division tasked with bringing HTC’s signature apps to hardware from competitors like Samsung, LG, and Sony.
The Zoe app, was initially introduced with the launch of last year’s HTC One M7, and it automatically creates video clips featuring photos and snippets from a user’s camera roll. The app will further apply a soundtrack of your choice and other transitions to these highlight reels, and make it possible to share the end result with your friends. The company wants to build an active community of Zoe users.
