Expect Labs is expanding the scope of its MindMeld API with a new offering focused specifically on enabling voice-powered mobile recommendation apps for retailers. The company first announced its API business earlier this year (after becoming known for its MindMeld app that listens to conversations and surfaces related content in real time) and appears on a mission to create specialized version for a handful of industries. In July, Expect Labs released a search API targeting media apps like Netflix, and its website shows a handful of upcoming versions, including ones targeting cooking apps and customer service.
