We've heard your feedback and are excited to release two new beta features to help you get more out of Hound:
1. Jump In - No need to wait for Hound to finish speaking before you ask your next question. Simply say 'OK Hound..' and start talking right away!
2. Bluetooth - We've made it easier to use the Hound app when you're away from your phone or tablet. Hound will now work through Bluetooth devices that have a microphone.
Your feedback is always welcome at [email protected].
Hound is the best way to search using your natural voice.

What do we mean by natural voice? Instead of talking like a search query "OK Hound… Find Chinese restaurants", just ask "OK Hound… What are the top rated Chinese restaurants near me?" You'll be amazed at the lightning-fast response.

Want to try something more advanced? Hound can use follow-up questions and commands to filter, sort, or add more information to the original request. Give this a shot: "OK Hound… Find Asian restaurants rated 4 stars or more within walking distance of Times Square and exclude Chinese, Korean, and Thai"
