SoundHound isn’t going to idly sit around as Shazam adds features like TV and visual recognition. Hell, SoundHound is no longer content with having Shazam as their only real main competitor.
The music recognition app is no longer just a music recognition app…
They’ve launched Hound, a competitor to Siri, Cortana, and Google Now. SoundHound says that the app is able to not only understand words, but can also understand language. They say you can speak to the app naturally, and can even ask it complex questions.
Hound is launching in beta on Android, and will be available on iOS in a few months.
Yes, you can use Hound to identify songs… but you can also use it to book hotels, get directions, and play voice enabled games.
