Call And Text Notifications

Call And Text Notifications

Call And Text NotificationsThe newest bullet point added to the back of the Vive Pre’s box are incoming call notifications from your smartphone .

“We want people to know this was well thought out,” says Shen Ye, product specialist for HTC. Ye showcased how the Vive Pre behaves when your phone receives a call. A notification in the center shows which number is ringing your phone. Upon the call’s arrival, users can decline, reply with a canned message or answer the call and carry out the conversation from within Vive. Call clarity sounds exactly the same as putting the phone next to your ear or using earbuds.

“The system also supports calendar notifications and canned responses can be changed,” Ye tells us. “It will support iOS and Android.”
