Nuance Communications has released an update to Dragon Go, its voice search app for iOS, adding support for searching Expedia and Hulu+. Dragon Go 1.2 now allows users to quickly find flights, hotels and travel deals supplied by Expedia using Nuance’s Dragon natural language voice recognition technology. Travel search results are presented in a device optimized format with links available to buy tickets directly from Expedia. Users can also quickly swipe to view results from other relevant services such as Yelp, OpenTable and Twitter. The update also adds integration with Hulu+ alongside current services such as Netflix, Spotify, Pandora and Last.fm, allowing users to use natural language voice commands to search for and play back movies, TV shows and music on their favourite online services. In addition to the new support for Expedia and Hulu+, Dragon Go also provides content from other services including AccuWeather, Ask.com, Bing, Dictionary.com, ESPN, Facebook, Fandango, Last.fm, LiveNation, Milo.com, OpenTable, Pandora, Rotten Tomatoes, Spotify, Twitter, Wikipedia, Wolfram Alpha, Yelp, YouTube and Yahoo. Dragon Go is available from the U.S. App Store as a free download.
