Handsfree Player for YouTube app

Just say "Hey listen"

You literally just tap, say and play. If I know what I want to listen to, I just say it and then I'm instantly watching or listening to it. No typing, no trawling through results. It's so quick and easy to get what you want in an instant.

Handsfree Player for YouTube, a new free app with a smart voice search engine that gives users hands-free access to all of YouTube, has just been released on Google Play. Just talk to the app and it instantly finds and autoplays the most relevant music track or video.

Not only is YouTube the second biggest search engine after Google, it is the No. 1 music streaming platform by far, streaming more songs and growing 60% faster than all the rest of the online music streaming providers combined. The Handsfree Player for YouTube app gives users instant hands-free access to YouTube content without having to lift a finger. This is especially true when users home in on the exact song or video. Just say “Hey listen…Cold Water” and Justin Bieber’s latest hit autoplays in less than a second. As mobile users’ attention spans are getting shorter with an ever increasing expectation of instant gratification, fewer swipes and taps is a step up whether your hands are busy or not.

As the developer of the app, Darren Bond of GameSoft Interactive put it, “You literally just tap, say and play. If I know what I want to listen to, I just say it and then I'm instantly watching or listening to it. No typing, no trawling through results. It's so quick and easy to get what you want in an instant.”

Darren came up with the idea for the hands-free app while on a road trip when he ran out of music he wanted to listen to from his CD collection. Darren thought, “If only I could talk to my phone and make it play my favorite songs!” Fast forward a few months, the app Darren envisioned is now available on Google Play in 17 languages.

Handsfree Player for YouTube isn’t just for playing music on YouTube, users can also watch videos on YouTube with the same voice-enabled, instant hands-free access.

Handsfree Player for YouTube has a few other cool features that users will appreciate too. Users can create their own Favorites playlist of music, podcasts or videos. And if one is not sure what to watch and just want to be entertained, there’s always the crowd pleaser, YouTube’s latest Trending Videos. Binge users beware, the app will autoplay trending videos one after another until stopped. The app also boasts a “neat and refreshingly clean user interface” with a familiar look to make new users feel at home. And just in case it is needed, there is the text search option to fall back on.

Handsfree Player for YouTube is free and is now available from the Google Play store. New features will be introduced via updates to the app in the next few months.
