Hulu Plus joins more than 200 content providers that make Dragon Go! the go-to mobile concierge that's changing the way consumers find and experience mobile content. “Mobile consumers are demanding a search experience that does more than just serve up a list of blue links – they want direct access to relevant content,” said Michael Thompson, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Mobile. “And by working with more than 200 of the most trusted content providers like Hulu Plus, consumers can watch, listen to and find just about anything from anywhere, just by speaking naturally.” Dragon Go!'s unique combination of Nuance's Dragon voice recognition and innovative natural language understanding results in an app that not only hears what people say, but what they mean.

Dragon Go!'s unique, open design also gives consumers and content providers an experience that maintains each brand's familiar look and feel. Dragon Go! lets consumers say virtually anything and immediately jump to relevant destinations.
