The Entercom Communications-owned app that enables consumers to listen to audio streams of its radio stations and of its partner broadcasters will now be accessible via the independent voice AI platform offered by SoundHound.
Thanks to a new partnership, SoundHound’s Houndify will become the newest access point for Radio.com.
Specifically, Radio.com will be included as a content domain within Houndify, and made available to partners across the automotive, retail, hospitality and telecom sectors.
In the future, Houndify partners will have access to Radio.com, too.
“SoundHound is blazing a path for voice-enabled technology and we’re excited for our premium content to be accessible on their growing platform,” said David Rosenbloom, Vice President of Corporate Business Development at Entercom. “This strategic partnership will expand our voice function accessibility and most importantly provide a safe way for users to consume their favorite audio using Houndify’s ingenious conversational abilities.”
“Offering the highest quality voice-enabled content is a critical part of our overall mission,” added Kamyar Mohajer, Vice President of Corporate Strategy and International Expansion, SoundHound Inc. “We’re therefore thrilled to announce RADIO.COM as a Houndify Domain Partner and are looking forward to providing Houndify users with access to their vast network of radio stations just by using their voice.”
Houndify allows brands to create custom voice assistants with Speech-to-Meaning and Deep Meaning Understanding technologies.
Radio.com is already accessible on such devices as the Amazon Echo, Amazon FireTV, Sonos, Roku, Google Home, Google Chromecast, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Apple Music, Siri, and Samsung Bixby.
