New Version Released
The new version of Lenovo Companion was released August 2014 and combines both Lenovo Support and Lenovo Companion apps together. Think of it as the best of both apps in one place.
There are three main sections in Companion:
- My System: Provides customized information related to your specific device including System Updates and Health, Warranty status, customized Accessories and Lenovo Support Knowledge Base, Discussion Forum and Hints & Tips.
- Lenovo Exclusive: Read content that is exclusive to Lenovo Companion. Lenovo experts provide insight on system features and design and general technology tips from extending the life of your battery to setting up Bluetooth.
- Tech News & Blogs: In select countries, there’s an extra section where you can read the latest technology news and blogs from trusted sources and partners. This content is continually updated so every time you open Companion, you’ll see fresh news and blogs.
