Thanks to an update to BlinkFeed in Google Play, HTC owners running Sense 6 now have access many of the new Sense 7 features which were introduced in HTC Sense 7 on the HTC One M9. The update includes new features within BlinkFeed (UI tweaks and Yelp suggestions), the new location aware Sense Home Widget which suggest apps based on your location and Themes which allows you to customize the look and feel of the icons, wallpapers, sounds and accent colors within the launcher.
HTC’s move last year to update its core apps through Google Play has added a lot of value to HTC handset owners. HTC is constantly working to update the OS on its phones, but it’s much easier and quicker to push an update update through Google Play to enable new features on dozens of different phone models at once.
Once you have downloaded the latest update, let us know what new feature you enjoy the most.
