HearMeOut joins SmartDeviceLink

Voice Social Network Startup Joins Spotify, Waze and Accuweather on Leading Infotainment Platform

TEL AVIV, Israel, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HearMeOut (www.hearmeoutapp.com), the voice-based social media platform, today announced they are the latest app to become part of the SmartDeviceLink (SDL) platform (www.smartdevicelink.com). HearMeOut is a social app empowering consumers and content creators to share short audio clips, allowing them a more personable means of communication and enabling a handsfree experience in the connected car space, making them a great fit for the SDL platform.

SDL is the industry standard for open-source in-vehicle connectivity and is empowering the developer community to integrate applications into the connected car. Overseen by the SmartDeviceLink Consortium, established by Ford Motor Company and Toyota Motor Company, the SDL also includes manufacturers such as Mazda Motor Corporation, Subaru, Suzuki, PSA and Daihatsu as members.

"Joining and ultimately supporting SDL validates HearMeOut's unique value proposition within the connected car space," said Moran Chamsi, CEO of HearMeOut. "We look forward to building on our work to date with Ford and extending this to other members of the Consortium to offer their drivers the ability to consume hands-free social content."

Having only recently launched in the United States, this relationship with SDL highlights the value proposition and significant opportunities HearMeOut brings to the connected car space. HearMeOut is unique in its offer of a social network that is focused on the recording and targeted consumption of audio content. By supporting SDL HearMeOut will now be available to the industry's largest consortium of automakers looking to enrich the driving experience through connected apps.

HearMeOut's first foray into the car was with Ford in 2015, by enabling HearMeOut to work via SYNC AppLink. Currently, HearMeOut is supported within Ford vehicles in the UK and Ireland, with plans to be rolled out in additional markets in 2017. 

"HearMeOut is a great fit for us because it's a promising social audio network built to be hands-free from the ground up," said Doug VanDagens, chairman of SmartDeviceLink Consortium. "We are excited that HearMeOut has decided to support SDL and become a safe social component into the ecosystem we are creating."
