Hound vs Google Now – Digital Assistant Showdown!

Hound vs Google Now – Digital Assistant Showdown!

There are many great features on our phones. Between Microsoft’s Cortana coming to Android and Google Now getting more and more intelligent, voice control of our searches is not far away. Siri, Cortana and Google Now are not the only ones looking to make a vocal search assistant, as song identification service SoundHound is jumping into the ring with their new Hound app as well. So the question begs to be asked, which digital assistant implementation is actually better: Hound by SoundHound or, the Android standard, Google Now?

In this episode, XDA TV Producer TK compares Hound to Google Now in a Digital Assistant Showdown. In this cage match two will enter, how many will exit? Could it be two? Can there be two kings of the digital assistant world each providing their own value depending on the situation? Is there a clear winner? Check out this video to find out!
