New device to allow users to control social media app
The new HOOP device enables the use of HearMeOut’s voice-based social media app in cars that do not have connected car technology.
HOOP is compatible with the steering wheel of any car, letting drivers safely use the platform with both hands on the wheel.
The device has been developed with NASDAQ-listed DSP Group, a leading provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications.
The company recently achieved a critical milestone for its HearMeOut app, reaching the top 50 on the Apple App Store for the highly competitive social network category.
