Aliso Viejo, California – After enjoying success as a finalist in last year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Accelerator, Vela App Inc. has announced a new partnership with Spotify to deliver the first voice control app designed for the popular streaming music service. The app, available on the iTunes App Store for $0.99, creates a hands-free experience where the user can simply speak a song and artist’s name, to have the song automatically play.
The intuitive app shows a large microphone button, and requires only a single touch to activate it. Once activated, the voice control allows the user to verbally interact with the app, for instant access. The voice control tool functions as a wonderful complement to Spotify’s recently released Connect feature, which allows Spotify music be played over any home audio setup. The Voice Search app can also be extremely useful when used with Bluetooth or iPhone cable connections in the car.
“In addition to convenience, safety was a motivating factor in the development of Voice Search,” said Joscelyne Mason, Public relations Manager at Vela App. “The ability to interact by voice while driving creates a safer travel experience, and of course makes Spotify more searchable and convenient to use at any time – whether at home, on the road, or in any other location.”
Voice Search for Spotify is Vela App’s second app on the marketplace. Their first app, which won wide acclaim at the popular SXSW music festival, debuted their innovative voice control app for iPhone and was chosen as a finalist out of a field of more than 500 competitors in the SXSW Music Accelerator competition.
Vela app has received positive reviews from some of the Web’s most prominent publications, including Gizmodo, The Next Web, and others. Highly accurate and easy to use, the action is fast, with the song playing almost immediately after the title is spoken.
