We all know SoundHound as a song identification service but today they announced the project called “Hound” on which they have been working for nearly a decade . Hound is voice-controlled assistant just like Google-Now but much more powerful than the latter.
Hound takes speed and accuracy to a whole new level by combining speech recognition and language understanding. This Speech-to-Meaning capability makes Hound the new way to search and do things faster without typing.
The app interface is fairly Material design which will attract users. Hound can do all the basic stuff that other personal-assistant can do like set alarm and reminder,navigate to particular direction. Along with this, it can be used for finding hotel that matches your detailed criteria and checking the stock market.
Hound is currently available in Beta and requires an invite to try out the app. In my opinion Hound is the hybrid of Google-Now and Siri. Considering that SoundHound is almost perfect in matching lyrics with the song, this is a good time for the company to try is hand in voice-recognition.
