Nuance Powers Music Discovery App

Nuance Communications today announced that its Dragon voice technologies power Vela, an app for iOS that lets people access their favorite music accounts, such as Spotify, Radio and more, with voice commands.  

With the Vela app, which is available for free from the Apple App Store, users can search and play virtually any song, artist, or album in a matter of seconds by simply speaking. 

"Vela supports access to millions of songs, artists, and albums, and we needed to give people a simple and intuitive way to find the music they want while on the go.  Nothing is more intuitive than the human voice, and Nuance's voice capabilities differentiate the music app experience while delivering incredible accuracy," said Justin Mason, founder and CEO of Vela, in a statement.

"Voice delivers the instant gratification our mobile lives demand, and that includes transforming the way people experience music while mobile. NDEV continues to provide the power of voice to developers all over the world, driving an ecosystem of apps like Vela that humanize the mobile app experience," said Matt Revis, vice president and general manager of Dragon Devices at Nuance Mobile, in the statement.

The Vela app is currently available for iOS with a free Vela Lite version or a paid premium option called Vela Pro.
