Interviewed: Pieter Nys – Client Manager Greenhouse Conversational
Building a voice application in record time; our team successfully built a game around guessing the well known Secret Sound – Het geluid – of Qmusic in just 4 weeks. A unique collaboration between Greenhouse Conversational and Qmusic, made all the more special by reaching the number one position in Google’s “play game” built-in intent list (the organic top results of Google Assistant games). By doing so, we knocked the Greenhouse-developed award-winning Donald Duck quiz (DPG Media) from its pedestal.
Secret Sound is a popular game on the Dutch radio channel Qmusic. Participants listen to a short audio fragment and attempt to guess what they heard. Each time a listener gives a wrong answer, the prize money increases with €100,-. This steadily increases the jackpot and makes listeners even more eager to win.
Since identifying these sounds can be quite difficult (e.g. try guessing the sound of a tire lever being placed on a bicycle tire), the Greenhouse Conversational team worked together with Qmusic to build a solution that helps participants hone their listening skills. As such, a great Qmusic brand experience was created and a voice app for the Google assistant was born.
