This is designed to let music fans to find a song, even when there are multiple versions, and provide an additional level of detail in voice-led and advanced search and recommendation systems.

“Music service providers need new and innovative ways for users to discover related music,” said Kathy Weidman, senior vice president and general manager, metadata, TiVo.

“SongConnect enables the discovery of alternate versions of a song across multiple languages, in all different genres, by delivering a new level of connectivity and accuracy to search.”
