Native Voice Secures $14 Million in Funding
Native Voice, providers of an on-demand voice services ecosystem, has completed a $14 million seed funding round.
"Voice assistants are great but limited in what they can do. You have to wake up one assistant to open another and then take your phone out of your pocket to call a car or play a song. Native Voice unlocks multiple voice services, like Alexa and Siri, and the brands that are developing their own, like Spotify and Uber. Users can get more done, using only their voice," said John Goscha, founder and CEO of Native Voice, in a statement. "With this latest round, we look forward to expanding our capabilities and bringing on more brand and hardware partners to the Native Voice platform."
With Native Voice, users can unlock access to a growing library of branded voice services, like 'Hey Spotify' and 'Hey Uber,' tap-to-talk functionality, and always-listening wake-up capabilities. Native Voice helps users connect with their favorite assistants on audio devices, from phones to ear buds, smart speakers and cars, with all their skills or actions.
Native Voice is helping iHeartMedia users access podcasts, music, and radio content by voice through their Skullcandy devices.
