Thanks so much for the Hunt @chrismessina, and hello Product Hunt! Hound is the voice search & assistant app from the team at SoundHound Inc. After years of development behind the scenes, we're excited to announce that it's now available for download on both iOS and Android in the US. Hound is the first consumer product to utilize the Speech-to-Meaning recognition technology from our voice-enabling platform, Houndify. This makes Hound different: - Extremely fast and accurate responses - Speak naturally, no need to speak in keyword phrases - Follow-up to filter, sort, or add more information so you can be specific You can also use it hands-free by saying, "Ok Hound…" Hound is constantly improving and expanding with new data to provide more answers on a wider variety of search queries. In this launch, we’re also pleased to highlight partnerships with Uber and Yelp, enabling users to order an Uber car or access Yelp’s business listings by speaking to Hound naturally, as if they’re speaking to another person. We believe that voice interaction will eventually become the preferred means of communication with devices, and we aim to make this simple, effective, and enjoyable for people. We’ll be answering questions today, and you can always contact us for support. We look forward to hearing feedback from this incredible community. Thank you! Andi

Hound is incredibly fast! And the ability to ask follow up questions is really top notch. Not once did I get "I'm not sure what you mean"

Yes, lots of biggies working in this space, but kudos for their perseverance and hard work over so many years. We are excited about trying their developer API in interesting ways.

@abgeorgiana Thanks Andi. We are getting close to releasing alpha and need all the good wishes we can get. And would be great to have access to some TLC when we do start playing around with Hound/Houndify. Perhaps you will help us connect with the right folks within Hound at the right time. Cheers!
