Customer Reviews

Fast and reliable.

Fastest voice app. I listen to the news on-demand every day in the car: "play me the news".

Hands down the best voice assistant

I love using Hound! Much more accurate and useful than Google voice or Siri. Thanks SoundHound!

Great, but not as good as Cortana

Hound is doing great so far. I used it for a long time but now I've finally switched to Cortana and it's made such a greater impact. Hound is cool, but Cortana still wins.
