Creates human-read voice experiences for publishers, media companies, and brands that drive engagement and revenue across audio platforms.
SpokenLayer is the leading provider of voice content for virtual assistants and connected devices – Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and beyond. Based in the heart of New York City, we’re backed by Beasley Media Group, Guardian Media Group Ventures, Betaworks, North Base Media, Graham Holdings, Matter VC, and other amazing investors.
“SpokenLayer is already the No. 1 voice provider to Amazon and Google, powering voice experiences on smart speakers for the world’s top media companies…it is now offering brands unique, voice-first marketing opportunities across these major platforms, from host-read messages to more integrated opportunities.”
“While Al Jazeera also works directly with device manufacturers, those relationships are often bespoke and slow moving. SpokenLayer, which works with major publishers such as Condé Nast, ESPN and Oath, makes it easier to widely and quickly distribute content on all devices.”
“Voice is everywhere. According to BI Intelligence research…by 2022 half of the households in the US will have some sort of smart speaker. Will Mayo, CEO and founder of SpokenLayer, has been in the industry since before there was a voice industry to speak of. In his opinion, voice is a huge opportunity for brands and publishers to capture audience attention in a new way. He has worked with companies like Time Inc., Wired, and Bustle to deliver content and brand experiences through voice-activated devices.”
“TheStreet, Inc. a leading financial news and information company, announced today that TheStreet’s daily market updates are now available on smart speakers worldwide…The Street worked with SpokenLayer, the largest provider of spoken media content for Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and other platforms, to produce and distribute the experience across the modern voice ecosystem.”
“Being there is the KPI for success – if you’re not, someone else will steal your share over time. People have the mental space for 3-5 spots for apps/experiences they use – if you don’t become one of those slots now, the cost to acquire a user will be significantly more expensive if not impossible.”
