Audioburst today announced the release of two new offerings centred around the use of voice. Audioburst Auto, an Android app which focuses on delivering tailored playlists and hands-free voice search to today’s drivers, is being released on Android Auto.

Additionally, Audioburst disclosed the upcoming release of their technology on Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant platform.

Audioburst Auto provides several key deliverables to drivers utilising the Android Auto standard. Users can choose from expertly crafted playlists designed by the company’s team of audiophiles.

In addition to these curated playlists, listeners may also build a customised news feed, created from an extensive list of topics as well as custom topics of the user’s choosing.

Lastly, the app provides real-time voice search capabilities, allowing drivers hands-free access to up-to-the-minute weather, traffic, and search results on any subject.

“Our primary focus at Audioburst is connecting listeners to the world’s best talk-audio content,” said Rachel Batish, VP of Product at Audioburst,

“These days everyone is busy and on the move. It’s impossible to parse all of the information thrown our way, especially during hands-free moments, such as when we are behind the wheel. Both Audioburst Auto and our integration with Bixby ensure that listeners can get fresh, relevant audio no matter where their day takes them.”

Audioburst’s integration into Samsung’s voice assistant platform, Bixby, brings the next-gen search company’s signature “burst” – short audio snippets which capture the best moments from top podcasts and radio shows to Samsung’s voice-first users.

The partnership between Audioburst and Samsung Bixby will provide both hands-free voice search as well as a personalised news feed similar to that which is already offered on Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

“We’re excited to be working with Audioburst as part of Bixby’s Developer Premier program,” said David Gene Oh, Senior Director at Samsung Electronics America,

“We’re always looking for new, innovative ways to bring Bixby users the information and entertainment they need, and we think Audioburst’s short-form, hands-free approach to audio is a perfect match.”

The new integration is the latest collaboration from the two companies’ ongoing partnership and will be debuted by Oh and Hirsh this week during a talk at VOICE Summit 2019 in Newark, NJ.

The Audioburst experience is already available on several interfaces such as Audioburst Search, Alexa, and Google Home. Additionally, developers can access the Audioburst APIs via the recently released Audioburst Studio platform to tap into the robust Audioburst Content Library and introduce a more dynamic and personalised listening experience for users across in-car infotainment systems, voice assistants, IoT gadgets, and smartphones.

Audioburst’s solutions are integrated or being built into products from brands including Samsung, LG, Bytedance, Nippon Broadcasting System, Dentsu, and Hyundai.
