Move over Siri and friends... SoundHound's Hound arrives.

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, March 16, 2016

More competition for Apple, Google, Microsoft and Amazon.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Move over Siri, Google Now, Cortana and Alexa.   You’ve got more competition.   This time from SoundHound’s new app called Hound.   The voice search and assistant app, for iOS and Android ….adds some new tricks through what the company calls speech to meaning.  VP and General Manager Katie McMahon…

“You experience a speed and accuracy unlike anything previously.   For example, I could just ask what time is it,  but I can continue as well.   We allow you a follow up.   So you can continue talking to Hound asking well what time is it in New York?    How about in London?   So we retain a context awareness.”

You can also go hands free with the wake up phrase okay Hound.   And there’s even more to come.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
