HTC Launches Blinkfeed with the new HTC One

 

Earlier today we announced the new HTC One®. One of the things we really considered in the design process was how people find, consume and share content on their phones. To address this we developed Blinkfeed, part of the new HTC Sense experience. Blinkfeed brings previously hidden content to the home screen, so you can see the things that are most interesting to you at a glance, without having to open a series of apps. Already, we have 1,400 content partners registered including the AOL properties (Huffington Post, Moviefone, Engadget, TechCrunch, and more) the Associated Press, and ESPN.

We know you don’t want to spend time hunting for information hidden behind app icons. You expect instant and effortless access to a continuous feed of aggregated content. Blinkfeed combines your social channels with news content from our partners to generate a personalized feed that shows you uniquely relevant content every time you turn on your phone.

With more than 10,000 news feeds per-day, available in 16 different languages, Blinkfeed delivers fresh content, and gives you the choice to select content you want from our featured partners. We’ve created an ecosystem with global and local content, and will continue to add more partners in the future.

By selecting content from a featured partner, or through categories geared towards your specific interests, you will get fresh information every time you glance at your new HTC One.

    Hi Julie, the HTC One doesn’t have an SD slot.

      Julie, but it has 32gb and 64gb.. plus 25 gb of Dropbox

      • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

        Thanks Zaafir, you are correct. Julie, I am sure you will love this phone when it is released.

    Is there an iPhone blink feed app?

    • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

      Hi Richard, sorry, there is not an iPhone Blinkfeed app, however, if you are ready to upgrade, there is a tremendous new beast of a phone called the HTC One. You can pregister today at http://www.htc.com/us/smartphones/htc-one/signup, which will also give you a $100 cash back offer for pre-registration.

      Remember, this is the first phone in the world with Blinkfeed, Boomsound, and Zoe photography. Plus, it has a gorgeous, full-HD 1080p screen and can use the IR ports to control your TV.

  • Cris Aviance Igtiben

    why is G+ not listed? will HTC One S be updated to Sense 5.0???

  • http://www.facebook.com/william.benaway William Benaway

    No sdcard is a deal breaker for me.That and more bloat

    • Joel Fabiani F. Teixeira

      64Gb isn’t enough?

      • http://twitter.com/j909909 J.Colton

        not that it is not enough. its that i dont want to be spending an extra $100 everytime i get a new cell phone when i could buy a SD card for $60 and transfer it to my new cell phone or to any cell phone

      • FosterDog

        It isnt the 64GB limit, per se, but the ease of swapping multiple SD cards versus uploading and downloading and replacing files. Just because it works for you doesn’t mean it works for everyone. Some of us actually use these phones for work and carry multiple massive files. It replaces a PC or external HDD in many instances. If I want to step back in time, I can do that with a flip phone and notebook.

  • Owen Johnson

    will my HTC one x+ get sense 5 blinkfeed???

  • EarlyMon

    Can we just turn it off? If not, what happens if I unselect everything in the menu?

    • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

      By default, Blinkfeed is the home screen. You do have the option to change the home screen to one of the other screens.

      • EarlyMon

        Thanks for the reply, highly appreciated.

        That answered from a cosmetic perspective, fair enough, but I’m asking about data consumption.
        Can I deselect all feeds so that I have none of that downloading? If the Blinkfeed screen expands to accommodate more feeds, what happens if I have zero feeds? Does that remove Blinkfeed from that screen altogether?

        The feature looks really great, kudos on that. Just not sure that it would make sense for my data plan to be honest.

        • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

          Hi EarlyMon,

          If you deselect all feeds, you will have a blank Blinkfeed screen. If you did that you would move another as home screen. I understand what you’re saying about data plans, but I have not noticed a significant bump in my data usage as of yet.

          • EarlyMon

            Fantastic! Looking forward to finding out for myself!

          • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

            I forgot to add, I have my Blinkfeed set up to automatically update over WiFi and I can “pull” to update when on mobile network. You also have an option to set Blinkfeed to update on WiFi or Mobile networks.

          • http://twitter.com/MrMoaks Mark Oakley

            I was thinking the same questions, thanks for your replies, I would be interested to see how it effects mobile data usage if left to update all the time by this method. I have a 750mb plan and always seem to be watching how close I get to my limit, to the point of turning it off when i don’t need it or staying in Power Saver Mode constantly. I look forward to having an experiment myself.

          • EarlyMon

            Ok, perfect! ^.^

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=696112190 Ahmad Abdel-Aziz

            Great great options there, Larry :)

            HTC One rocks big time! and Blink Feed for the win :)

            I knew HTC software team wouldn’t overlook an important feature like this :)

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=696112190 Ahmad Abdel-Aziz

            Thanks for the detailed answer Larry :)

    • HamdiR

      considering the amount of people asking about this (mostly android loyalists) I think it’s best for HTC to provide a disable option, it would still be better than users resorting to other launchers and better than scaring away potential adopters

      • EarlyMon

        But look at what Larry confirmed – you can disable all feeds and not involve it as your homescreen. No need for another launcher and that sounds disabled to me. Plus, you can keep it from auto-updating, my other concern. One of the news blogs said you’re stuck with it, but I think that the answers to my questions show that’s not accurate.

        • onthegrid

          Notice how Larry never said you can disable blinkfeed. He carefully skirted around saying that specifically. He said everything but that. Even with no active feeds or disabling all feeds, it seems blinkfeed will always be running in the background, chewing away at your RAM, at least. I like the idea of it as an option, but am concerned about the news sources at this point. I’ve tried giving flipboard a chance several times, but their news sources are garbage. I’m hoping blinkfeed won’t be the same.

          I’ve been only an HTC owner since adopting Android, and love the build quality of their phones. Sadly I’ve become more and more irritated with HTC as they’ve refused to take battery size seriously, and have moved away from external storage and removable batteries. I’ve been excited for this phone to come out, hoping it would give me a reason to stick with HTC. I wish the battery were larger, though according to early reports it’s supposed to perform quite well (would still prefer a removal battery). I also wish it could take a micro sd card, but it looks as though internal storage options will be generous.

          I’ll have to see it in person and compare it to the Galaxy S4, and maybe even wait for what Motorola has in the works (X phone), or the next Nexus (if not the X phone). I hate the idea of a plastic Samsung phone, but if it fits the bill (minus the build quality), then there you go. Samsung’s complete ripoff/poser way of business though still might be enough to keep me away from them. Anyway, I’m excited about the HTC ONE and really really hope it can help get HTC back in the game and won’t be a disappointing phone.

          • http://blog.htc.com/ Larry Meadows

            Sorry, I didn’t realize this was still a question out there.

            Blinkfeed is one of the five home screens. You can choose to turn off the feeds, which will result in nothing updating, thereby not churning on your battery or RAM. Keep in mind it is a screen designed to display feeds you choose to see. If you choose none, then you will not be updating anything.

            Personally, I have it set to Auto refresh on WiFi and I manually refresh when not on WiFi. I am averaging over one day of use between charges with moderate use. Battery life is a function of battery size and overall efficiency of what the phone does.

            As for BlinkFeed, you can also choose to set a different screen as the home and then go to BlinkFeed when you want to surf the news feeds.

          • Scootmien

            Although I have to confess it would be better if Blinkfeed acted like a widget that could be removed altogether rather than tucked away on a screen you won’t use.

            For my part, I intend on using it as I have feeds I would want to see, however, I realise that many others don’t wnt this and being stuck with it could be, for them, a PIITA

          • Daleos

            I’m loving my new HTC One but I’m not really getting Blinkfeed at all.
            Of all the HTV new goodies, this is the most irrelevant for me. It’s easy to avoid but it’s robbed me of a homescreen.
            At the very least I thought it might be useful for stuff like a task list or a calendar but I can’t even get the calendar to work (despite it being selected). No idea where to get instructions on how to use it to be honest.
            I’m completely not into the idea of my social stuff following me around all day and all my news/feed stuff I do want to look at is mostly text only so a pictures in a fancy layout doesn’t really work either. Also I’m not a front to back reader of websites, even news ones and rarely look at ‘headline’ pages. I’d rather snipe my news with quite specific search filters using something like Google News from the whole of the interweb than browse for it on a handful of sites.

          • http://www.facebook.com/stavros.abougelis.5 Stavros Abougelis

            so why cant it be removed as as all other apps? obviously it’s an issue with some people at least..I have been considering this phone and my household is all htc but this “apple like” feature ie “locked in” is in your face with restricted options and im not liking it….

    Can’t see why anyone would either want or need more than 32GB ram on a handheld, so why do people keep banging on about SD card slots … get up to date people – use the cloud.

    • EarlyMon

      YMMV, my phone is my pda and I keep my development files on mine. My packages are measured in GB, I can neither wait on the cloud nor trust it to be there when I need it. I presently have the HTC EVO 4G LTE (Sprint One X variant) with an internal and external sd card usable storage of around 70 GB. I’m thankful that a 64 GB model is being offerred. Android is all about choice and it wins because we all have individual needs. Cheers!

  • http://www.facebook.com/stevejcrow Stephen Crow

    Will BlinkFeed or the new Sense be coming to the One X? The rate at which you guys bring out new models of phones with newer features which aren’t supported on the last flagship model is quite worrying and could lead to consumer fatigue if you ask me!

    • fabitto

      I have the same question! Will Blinkfeed be coming to HTC One X or X+??? I own a HTC One X and I am very satisfied with my device, it’s my first HTC smartphone. However I am not planning to change my phone this year, thus I am wonder if we will receive the new Sense.

  • John

    What’s the difference between global content partners and the rest? Are all content partners available to everyone? That is, can I as a Swede get content from The Guardian, even though they´re listed under “UK”?

  • http://twitter.com/GarrettGoodman Garrett Goodman

    Hi Larry, really excited about the upcoming release. Been loving my HTC One X from the first day it became available here in France. Got a question for you: how can publishers contact you for inclusion in Blinkfeed? I’m with Worldcrunch, we partner with leading foreign-language newspapers (Le Monde, Die Welt, Kommersant, Caixin…) to surface their top stories and deliver them in smart, sharp English for the first time. We’d love to be a part of the Blinkfeed launch!

  • Jesse Casto

    Is there going to be G+ support to the blink feed?

  • FosterDog

    I do not and have never expected ‘instant and effortless access to a continuous feed of aggregated content’ and some of us actually need an SD card, believe it or not. I have been an HTC user for many, many years, but I will begrudgingly and sadly wait for the Galaxy S4.

  • Guest

    As I have “really interesting” sites with nice girls subscribed at Facebook I really do not want blinkfeed to be at the default screen :-D . If you switch on the phone on some business meeting, I really do not want somebody to look at this.

    Sedond thing. First screen is for me “quick screen” to most used apps (public transport timetables, calc, internet)+ my wife / mother / friend call. I really love to switch on and call somebody by ONE touch.

    So thank you for blink screen but I if I want to check facebook, I will click on app icon. Blinkscreen I will set to the 2nd left screen. :)

    But I love HTC and thanks for HTC One. I will buy it as soon as it will be available in our country.

    Alot of my favourite content sites have RSS feeds, but aren’t content partners (as far as I can tell). Can blink feed incorporate RSS feeds or does it work solely with the content providers shown above?

    Thanks,

    Jason

  • Tbb

    Is it possible to mix feeds from differen countries into one blink feed screen or do i have to switch the language or country settings everytime.
    And will it be possible to get infos out of apps for example NBA GAME TIME APP or other sport apps for ex.

  • Psp

    basically from all the reviews out there: Blinkfeed cannot be turned off. Major major failure. With less than stellar batteries who shoves a feature down customer’s throat which is not customizable/ not deletable. It takes up one screen no matter what ? Is this my phone or HTC’s advertisement panel ? amazing amazing decision. Second only to the failure to provide battery/ sd card slot (which atleast i can explain based on the efforts taken to build a solid phone, you do not want too many moving parts).

  • http://twitter.com/dexternepo Dexter

    It would be great if there is an option to disable Blinkfeed completely – not just remove feeds, but get rid of the Blinkfeed screen itself. I tried Flipboard and found that I don’t really use it, so I just uninstalled it. Android is all about customization, if people want non-customizable phones they would choose iPhone or Windows phone. So please give us the option to disable Blinkfeed. I currently own the HTC One X and I love it. I hope the battery life in the One is good. The HTC one looks stunning and it seems to be a great phone. It deserves to sell well. Thanks.

    Since this can’t be disabled (which I hate), when you add G+ will we need a full software update or is this just a system application that can be updated?

  • sai kumar Ganji

    great content providers. I am happy that al jazeera chipped in.

  • http://www.facebook.com/turockm Turock Moonwall

    I can see how this would help some but other like myself would rather decide what goes on each main screen. As this phone only allows 5 screens including this blinkfeed screen thus forth leaving you with only 4 screens to actually put apps on. I like having all screens available because I put music apps on one, web apps on another and so on. Leaving me with only 4 screens open for applying apps instead of 5 is making me loose my 5th screen i’ve been use to using.

    So, I now have about 60 hours with my new HTC 1. Blinkfeed? Would delete it if I could. Would absolutely trade it for another home screen. Overall physical phone? Made the iPhone 5 at the AT&T store look clunky. Overall software? Very nice looking and functioning. This is actually my 3rd HTC, going back to the Aria. What keeps me coming back? HTC Sync/Sync Manager! I need access to my work Outlook calendar/contacts, without having to load iTunes on my company machine. As long as HTC supports this nice little app, I’m here. Unfortunately, it seems Sense 5 lost the ability to scroll all the way through the tabs like you could do with Sense 4. I also liked the “Car Panel” that came with Sense 4. I was a huge fan of the favorite contacts widget that came with Sense 4. Sadly, now that phones are coming with more memory, developers have contracted bloatware disease. Yes, there are favorite contacts widgets out there that allow you to im, Facebook, tweet, all kinds of things to a favorite contact but none with the simplicity of the last HTC favorites.

    If it’s so great why do you have to force it on people by not letting them remove it?

    I have been waiting for this phone over a month now…Can anyone here tell me when it will hit the Indian stores? It has been a very annoying attitude from HTC by delaying its flagship by such time….Its now a now a mystery to find out the exact release date of One in India… :(

    Hi,
    how can I stop HTC’s big blue “hints and tips” blocks from appearing from blinkfeed.
    I turned off all sources, except my calendar, which worked fine for about 2 hours, now I have a small block of my calendar, and a big blue block, filling > half of the screen, telling me to create a secure folder for sms.
    I clicked it a few times, but it is on there now for 2 days. it is extremely annoying.
