It looks like HTC is just about ready to push Amazon Alexa support to their squeezable Edge Sense feature. The manufacturer pushed out an update to HTC Edge Sense (version 1.01.936529) about a week ago, but only now the UI animation has changed and they’ve added an extra option to summon Amazon Alexa with a squeeze.
The weird part is enabling the option doesn’t actually do anything yet. It’s just a placeholder for a future update, so there’s nothing to even try out at the moment. According to HTC, functionality wont be fully enabled until this Monday, July 17th — only 3 days away. So if you’re really keen on playing around with Alexa on your HTC U11, you’ll have to wait until then.
