SoundHound Inc. Key Developments

SoundHound, Inc. Integrates into Newest Casio G-Shock Bluetooth Watch

SoundHound, Inc. announced that the company's music identification technology is serving as a powering force in Casio Computer Co. Ltd.'s newest G-SHOCK Bluetooth watch and its embedded music application called G'MIX App. Users of the new Casio GBA-400 can initiate a SoundHound search on a Bluetooth connected smartphone directly from the watch and have results delivered to both the connected device and the watch face. The G'MIX App gives GBA-400 users access to a music player and the ability to listen to music and control volume. It also allows users to identify music without having to pick up a connected device. With a turn of the rotary dial on the side of the watch, a SoundHound search is started. Full results are delivered to the user's G'MIX App page on their device while title and artist, if in English, are delivered directly to the GBA-400 watch.
