SoundHound Launches iTunes Radio Integration

SoundHound Inc., the revolutionary sound search company, today announced a new feature that enables iTunes Radio to be launched directly from the SoundHound App on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The feature is now live and available to SoundHound users in the US.

“With the addition of support for iTunes Radio, SoundHound fans will be delighted to discover that they can now launch an iTunes Radio station seamlessly when they discover new music through SoundHound,” said Katie McMahon, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for SoundHound Inc. “We are constantly striving to excite our users with new features that enhance the mobile music experience.”

When a SoundHound user on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch identifies and discovers a song, they will see the iTunes Radio icon on the results page. When tapped, an iTunes Radio station will launch based on that artist. iTunes Radio stations will also be featured on the SoundHound home page carousel with the “Holiday Classics” station showcased in time for the holiday season.

The SoundHound App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at AppStore.com/SoundHound.
