"EAR is the latest feature in our commitment to making it as easy and quick as possible for content creators to find the right music no matter how they search. Google Cloud's scalable and light-touch infrastructure has been instrumental to our ability to meet user demand and develop innovations like EAR," says Greg Elkehag Funk, Chief Product Officer at Epidemic Sound.
