SoundHound has inked a partnership with Hyundai, to embed its music application into select Hyundai vehicles worldwide. The integration enables Hyundai drivers to identify songs and access SoundHound features  through the vehicle’s dashboard.

The partnership is an extension of a collaboration that began in North America in 2014; with the world’s first in-car implementation of SoundHound. The new global expansion will begin in Korea with the new 2018 Hyundai Veloster model, with additional models to follow, says SoundHound.

SoundHound  introduced the Houndify platform in 2015, with plans to make voice-enabled AI accessible. The platform powers more than 50,000 partners and reaches over 300 million end-users globally, says the company. Houndify partners include Samsung, Nvidia, Uber, and Yelp.
