SoundHound Is Trying to Compete with Siri, Cortana, and Google Now…

  • Save

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.

    Global MUSIC PIMP #3 percolating with cashless ideas! WOW! I am not impressed.

    Hey Soundhoud,
    You will be best off to BAG PIMP #1, GOOGLE, to detox from advertising overdose and convert together with PIMP Shazam Radio and streaming to $100B music store!

    Google can double it’s revenues by 2020 as a central hub of $100B+ music industry.

    Relatively primitive and profitable for all industrial rearrangement.

      So they can accelerate depletion of CAPITAL and help TECH investors to ventilate another round of cash.
      They are so great with sooooo much potential.

    If you guys have actually seen this in action, it seriously kicks Siri in the ass.
