SoundHound for iPhone and iPad is out with a new version that integrates with Apple Music in a few ways. For starters, if you’re an Apple Music subscriber and identify a song with SoundHound, the app can now add it to a SoundHound playlist in Apple Music automatically.

9to5Mac Happy Hour

Just connect your Apple Music account to SoundHound using the latest update then identify a song. The playlist gets automatically created in Apple Music and tagged tracks that are available on the service are instantly added.

SoundHound also lets you play Apple Music using its in-app voice control with the trigger phrase OK Hound, although Siri can control Apple Music as well.

Connecting your Apple Music account to SoundHound can also unlock full track playback and LiveLyric features in SoundHound. Check out the full release notes below:
