The company recently announced a voice app self-service publishing solution for radio stations, claims hundreds of voice apps customers and has worked with leading brands like Progressive. Pat has worked in voice technology for a decade and co-founded XAPP in 2012, well before Amazon Echo launched.
XAPP first worked with mobile audio apps to voice enable content discovery and ad conversions. Pat says, “this is why the company originally built its voice platform for scale.” In 2016, XAPP began working with brands and media companies to build and manage voice apps and now is recognized by Amazon, Google and Microsoft as a leading provider. In this week’s podcast interview Pat talks about what he has learned bringing so many organizations to voice interaction for the first time and what it takes to build a scalable voice platform.
