The FINANCIAL — On July 27, Lenovo announced it will release two new versions of its flagship applications – Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Both Lenovo-developed applications will come standard on Lenovo PCs preloaded with Windows 10. These two apps have over 10 million users combined worldwide.
Lenovo Settings 3.0 is a “smart” device control hub aggregating all of the most common hardware device functions into one place, making it easy for users to adapt and modify the way their computer or tablet behaves. Among its newest features, Settings offers a unique “Smart Settings” area which leverages built-in device sensors to predict, adapt and modify device settings to suit user behavior – automatically. Settings also showcases a robust “Power” section, which offers customization unique to Lenovo, such as a “Battery Stretch Mode” and “Charge Mode”, which lets users super-charge their battery replenishment.
Lenovo Companion 3.0 provides a sleek new interface and a robust optimization tool. Its new optimize feature keeps PCs running at peak performance: it can be used at any time to run a full-scale checkup and report back with specific actions that can free up space and speed up a user’s device. Companion will then complete the actions all within the user’s control, according to Lenovo.
Companion also provides exclusive Lenovo content to help people get the most out of their PC. Lenovo experts author how-to articles, tips and tricks, and other news to keep users up to date on their PC. The app also gives users customized access to device updates, warranty information, a knowledge base, user guides, discussion forums and even optional accessories complementing their specific machine.
In addition, Lenovo curates content daily from the best publishers from around the web across a variety of topics so users can easily stay current on all the latest industry news, trends and innovations.
“In today’s digital world users want a customized, personal experience” said Mark Cohen, Vice President, Ecosystems and Cloud Services. “The new Lenovo Companion 3.0 and Settings 3.0 tools give them the power to get the most out of their purchase including access to information about their PC, customizing it to their personal preferences and keeping it in tip top shape throughout the life of their device.”
