Introducing Hound 2.0: Smarter, Faster, and Easier-to-Use

Hound, the fastest and most accurate voice assistant is now even easier to use. We’ve redesigned the app to include visual enhancements plus all-new features, all centered around convenience and usability. Here’s what’s new in Hound 2.0:

Cleaner, easy-to-read interface

Our app interface has an improved look and feel. We’ve updated the navigation so the Hound button remains centered for one-tap access, and the keyboard stays handy on the right. You’ll also get:

  • Faster, more accurate transcriptions
  • Easier-to-read display with larger, more legible text
  • At-a-glance domain results

Convenient new shortcuts

Need help in a flash? Now you can quickly jump to many of Hound’s features like checking the weather, searching for a restaurant or sending a text through one-tap shortcuts.

  • Tap the new grid icon for quick access to shortcuts
  • Quickly start your search by tapping a shortcut icon
  • Get more in-depth query results with one tap

Swipe up for search history

You can now keep and easily access your search history all on one screen.

  • Swipe up to view previous search results
  • Tap and edit any of your old queries
  • Submit to re-do the search

Easier text inputs

For those times when typing is better than speaking, we’ve made text input easier to use. You’ll now get:

  • One-tap keyboard access (for quiet moments)
  • Pre-populated search suggestions

Give our reimagined Hound 2.0 app a try and let us know what you think. We’re always making improvements based on your suggestions, and our goal is to make Hound your go-to voice assistant whenever and wherever you need it!

You can download the latest version of the Hound app for iOS or for Android. If you already have the app, make sure to install the latest update from your app store.
