SoundHound turns sound into understanding and actionable meaning. We believe in enabling humans to interact with the things around them in the same way we interact with each other: by speaking naturally to mobile phones, cars, TVs, music speakers, coffee machines, and every other part of the emerging 'connected' world. We achieve this through a suite of products:
Hound - leverages our Speech-to-Meaning technology to showcase a ground-breaking smartphone experience.
SoundHound - applies our technology to music, enabling people to discover, explore, and share the music around them, and even find the name of that song stuck in their heads by singing or humming. #truestory
Houndify - our platform that empowers developers to be part of the Speech-to-Meaning revolution.
