Overall, SoundHound’s core search and recognition technology has been enhanced to deliver faster, more accurate results with rich content for both recorded sound and songs that are sung or hummed. SoundHound remains the only music recognition app in the world capable of identifying both with the tap of a single button.

Users will see and experience the lionshare of the new design and navigation elements when they identify a song and arrive at the results page, which will now feature beautiful new photo galleries, more relevant music videos and a listing of all albums where the song appears. The new results page experience also features more detailed biographies on discovered artists, one-tap access to their other top songs and videos and recommendations for exploring other artists similar in style and genre. Album information has been expanded and users can now see a more comprehensive array of reviews, full track listings and music previews.

LiveLyrics®, the hugely popular feature that displays synchronized lyrics while music is playing, and one of SoundHound’s most raved-about features, has been expanded to cover more songs. And the features exclusive to SoundHound that users have come to love, such as the ability to automatically add to playlists in Spotify or launch an iTunes Radio station based on a music discovery, remain prominent features.

“With a focus on design and user delight, SoundHound continues to build on top of our magical technology that has been embraced by millions of music lovers around the world,” said James Hom, Vice President of Products for SoundHound, Inc. “Our team has created what is truly the most immersive music search, discovery, and play experience on mobile.”
