SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SoundHound Inc.®, the leading innovator in voice-enabled AI and conversational intelligence technologies, today announced the addition of its award-winning SoundHound music recognition technology to its HoundifyTM voice AI platform. Launching today, the SoundHound Music Recognition feature is now available via request, allowing brands and developers to license the music search technology for use within their software interfaces, or to access via voice queries. This expands Houndify’s AI-based platform and uniquely offers proprietary music recognition technology that searches across one of the world’s largest music databases. Select partners that have already deployed SoundHound music recognition into their products include Hyundai, Motorola, HTC, Samsung, Korea Telecom, and Casio G-Shock watch.
SoundHound Inc.’s proprietary music recognition technology is a main feature of its music search, discover and play app, SoundHound, which has over 310 million downloads globally across iOS and Android devices. The app also includes unique sing/hum recognition technology and LiveLyrics®, as well as integrated playback from major music streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music.
“SoundHound has been at the forefront of building music recognition technologies for over a decade,” said James Hom, co-founder and VP of Products at SoundHound Inc. “Now, by enabling access to it through our Houndify platform, we offer our partners a killer feature for their own products and user experience.”
SoundHound Inc.’s Houndify voice and conversational AI platform has distinctive advantages including its proprietary Speech-to-Meaning™ and Deep Meaning Understanding™ technologies, which deliver unprecedented speed, accuracy and intelligence in voice recognition and understanding. To support natural interactions, Houndify understands complicated queries and context, such as the user’s location, previous queries, and compound criteria including exclusion. In addition, SoundHound Inc.’s Collective AI architecture allows partners to have complete control of the user experience and their own innovation, while benefiting from Houndify’s growing developer ecosystem.
Houndify is the first independent AI platform that enables developers and business owners to deploy a conversational interface anywhere and retain control of their brands and users, while differentiating and innovating. More than 60,000 partners have registered on the Houndify platform with many products integrating Houndify including Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai, Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel, Vauxhall, Nvidia (cars), Samsung (IoT platforms), Onkyo (speakers), Motorola (phones) and more.
