"We're pleased to partner with Nuance to deliver better products to their customers, allowing users to interact with, discover, play, and enjoy music in a wide variety of more engaging and innovative application of voice-enabled technologies.

Access to The Echo Nest's music intelligence will also further enhance Nuance's music-focused NLU to understand what people want when they ask for a song, album, or artist with greater accuracy. To that end, The Echo Nest will provide Nuance with attributes for recording artists including popularity, similarity, musical style, and more, improving Nuance's ability to provide an interactive music experience that can play the precise music a particular user has requested, converse with the user, and offer related content using only the voice.
