Soundhound in the Kia Optima


Kia’s have gained loads of impressive high end technology in their cars.  Each new Kia vehicle comes with a Uvo technology console that contain many apps to make your driving experience an enjoyable one.  Today, I want to single one of the apps out because it was new to the 2016 Kia Optima called soundhound.  Soundhoud has been around for a bit but never into a car console until recently.  Today we will talk about some of the features that makes it a must have in your next car.

Sound Search


One of the Coolest features of the SoundHound app is music search.  Say you put a friends USB into you Kia optima for some tunes but it does give the title of the song.  With Soundhound they use voice recognition software to find out what song and what bang.  So you don’t have to fight your friend about what this song is anymore!

Hand free

Being that the Sound Hound app is on your dash you can use it hands free.  This can save you time, but more importantly keeps you safe by letting you keep both hands on the wheel.

Sound Charts

Finding new music can be hard.  With soundhound they make it way easier.   They offer a free service called sound charts where it shows what others are listening too and are great recommendation for your next drive.  Not sure where to start?  We recommend the emerging artist chart.

These are just three features that makes soundhound a great edition inside your Kia Optima.  Check out this video below of a small video of the main screen of the Kia Optima.
