Whenever I open the app, my headphones disconnect? and won’t connect again until I shut down the app completely.

Used to be the best
by wyaeiga on 2019/11/13 01:07
Now this thing is absolute trash at identifying anything that’s not a top 40 song. Shazam is better than this by such a wide margin now it’s unbelievable almost.
Love this app!
by KK Greenville on 2019/11/12 18:42
It’s great to be able to hear a song, use the app and find out the song, artist and lyrics!
Sound hound is the best music searching app in the whole universe i just love it
by Owiata on 2019/11/12 07:28
App is too dope ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Doesn’t work with Spotify playlist
by Kayshub on 2019/11/12 04:34
Make it support Spotify as well
🥰🎶
by brownsoulflower on 2019/11/12 04:12
I have had sound hound for years maybe a little after they launched and I’m surprised they were able to keep the app with updated functionality with no interruptions. The icing on the cake is that I can easily add it to my iTunes♥️🎶🎶 music lover! SH I would love to see an update that allows notifications when an unrecognized song is updated to the data base🤔
Love it!

So fast and so handy! I love this app!

Not a good start

I decided to try this app. I’ve tried identifying about eight well known current and older songs. The app got one right.

Bluetooth Connection
by sgma45 on 2019/11/10 03:24
This is a very good app, but it can be better. Make it easier to connect via Bluetooth. Currently, it’s connecting but no sound. For instance, when I connect from my cellphone to my Amazon Echo Show I hear NO music from my Echo Show the music plays continually on my cellphone!
Good app
by Riushdi on 2019/11/10 03:01
I love it , every time I love a song. You got the answer. Thank you
Only in portrait mode?
by IOS needs it on 2019/11/10 02:15
Is this app even available to use in landscape mode? I use an iPad in my car for navigation, but in landscape mode. Seeing the lyrics for some older songs is a plus on longer trips, but not when the iPad is in the portrait position! Searching the net I read that the app for Android works in landscape, why not the same for iOS?
Can you find any R&B songs 👎🏾
by nooffender on 2019/11/10 01:07
I searched for 2 r&b songs and couldn’t find any.... soooo if you have any soul this isn’t for you 😒
I Love SoundHound
by Megan🥰🥰🥰 on 2019/11/09 18:47
I Love SoundHound Because It’s Fun To Sing Along. But One Of Problem Is That People Make The Videos Short And Can Hear All Of It and It Drives Me Crazy I Hope That Changes. Next Problem Is It Makes Me Have To Download YouTube Bc SoundHound Dossnt Have Every Old Song And People Make Accounts On This And Shorten Songs Then Hack Them Onto The Artists Songs. Last Problem Is It Shortens My Volume When I’ve Been Listening To It For A Half And Hour And It Didn’t Do It The first Time I Got SoundHound. I Love SoundHound🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰 Plz Eccept This Message
Useless

It doesn’t work as they say, you need to play a song for make it working, you can’t use your voice or whistle. I prefer Shazam instead of this sht
Easy to use!
by mamamia319 on 2019/11/09 17:23
Awesome app with quick responses and accuracy!! Easy to use!!
Definitely useful
by MyChemicalPilotsDisco on 2019/11/09 15:09
Very useful. You know when you are at a restaurant or whatever, and a song you like will come on, but you don’t know what it’s called? With this you can easily access the title and artist of that song. Also when you have a Sony stuck in your head but you don’t know what it is you can just hum into your phone and it will come up. You can also search up lyrics, a feature I don’t use all that often because you can use google for it but still useful. You can even connect to Spotify to listen to the song.
I love you sound hound

Great for naming memoriees

Not Optimal for Interacting with other apps
by Linzeefer on 2019/11/03 20:36
Suggestion: Let outside Bluetooth stay connected while search is occurring in other app. In my instance Spotify. Won’t run continuously while I look at lyrics. I deleted app then realized it’s the best search. Hook us up.
Most Useful App!
by Busycat23 on 2019/11/03 19:43
This app has answered artist/song questions that I’ve had since I was like 7! Thank you!
Fer real tho
by bkrautwurst on 2019/11/03 05:50
Yo what’s the point of a lyrics app if it’s not intelligent enough to let me keep listening to the song on my AirPods when I have this app on? Dummies.
Great app

Used to be good
by OneSidedAngel20 on 2019/11/02 00:32
There was a time where Sound Hound was good. It was able to pick up almost every song and not crash. Now, when you try to see what a song is called; it will crash and it almost never gets the song right. Almost every single time I’ve used this app after all the updates that had been done, the it will crash and say “there is no information on this song” or whatever it says. Which is bull because I have the sound up enough on the radio, tv, or phone. I’ve been seriously tempted to uninstall this app and never come back. You guys need to fix this crap.
Nice App
by Wallandwench on 2019/10/29 21:37
I’m amazed at the accuracy even on obscure songs.

Have used SoundHound for years and absolutely love it. It’s without competition identifying songs. Can even whistle. And the auto add feature is super useful! Thank you guys!!!
Great!
by FranChessK on 2019/10/28 19:11
When I listen to the radio and hear songs I don’t know this is a great app to find out what the song is called and whose singing it. It rarely can’t find what I want to know!
Good

Helps musicians a lot.
Who would have thought...
by Greenchristian on 2019/10/28 05:26
This is an amazing app. If you love music, and have ever heard part of any music, and wished you knew what it is, this is definitely one app to get. I’ve used it in a car with radio on, or watching something on tv that sounds familiar, and even been in a grocery store and wondered what was the music playing overhead. Who would have ever thought something like this was possible. Just too amazing.
Good service

Great for singing along, too
by @ParentAtTheDsco on 2019/10/27 19:15
Picks up the song titles even on live covers, and the Live Lyrics are a big hit at parties when we can only half-remember the words!

Good at finding a song but it still needs work.
by Athena Minerva on 2019/10/25 04:45
Don’t get me wrong I’m in love with this app but when I need to find a song even if it’s just a quick clip for some reason no match has come up. I put the music up higher and put the microphone close and it still can’t find it. What can I do about finding my favorite song?
Sound Hound is Awesome!

half is the name of the game
by Name-not-used-yet on 2019/10/24 19:47
The app works ok. Half of the time. It identifies some songs right, some are way off. The joker card of ‘various artists’ is the biggest problem. In the past it was dead on, almost 100%. The slide happened sometime 2 years ago. If it keeps up and accuracy does not improve, i’m gone. Lately, unless i’m on the wifi, it finds nothing. Easy songs like Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppeln or Jump by Van Halen. Nope, no bueno. Not sure why...
Would definitely recommend

I LOVE SoundHound!

It is the best app I’ve found so far to identify songs!! It is also so awesome it can automatically add it to my Apple Music library!!
Suddenly SoundHound can’t identify songs?
by CEF1998 on 2019/10/23 16:10
The app is no longer identifying pretty common songs like Soundgarden, etc. What’s going on?? I have used this wonderful app for years...

Best song ID app out there!
Best songfinder but same bad lyrics
by Optoutname on 2019/10/22 15:53
Every single online lyrics service is written by ignorant and lazy listeners who fill things in instead of researching the real lyrics (“Nailed down to the bed” instead of “New York down to the Bay” for example). It’s disappointed Soundhound made the mistake of incorporating these lazy liars’ misleading garbage, but other than that it is superior to every other song-identification app, including Shazam.
Explore new music
by MEjr. on 2019/10/22 13:43
This app is the absolute best. I enjoy the opportunity to listen to random radio station’s capturing the song lyrics or even the melody. Then you can create new experiences in your music genre, broadening your listening horizon.
useless - hummung or whistling is not working
by Sesamme on 2019/10/21 09:57
I had a song stuck in my head (it still is) but could only remember the melody. SoundHound sounded like a solution, but alas - too good to be true - it couldn’t find anything by whistling or by humming. Then I tried to hum and whistle very famous songs like Yesterday, or Halleluya - it didn’t find them either! Sometimes it was showing some unrelated results in Chinese, but mostly - nothing. Then I tried to sing them with words, and finally - voila, it works! So - it’s almost useless, because if I know the words, I can find a song anyway... Also - in the free version, the ad is often obscuring the button, so I must stop and restart the search. Don’t understand the 5 star ratings...

by jsfan320 on 2019/10/21 05:18
I have been looking for this song since I was like 16 (I’m 36 now) and the tune was always in my head but not the lyrics so I couldn’t even google the lyrics. My off beat humming a small part of the song I was looking for on this app and bam!!! Thank you SoundHound!!!!!! #incredible :)

by LittleMan15086 on 2019/10/17 03:05
I have been using this app for years and it has helped me figure out thousands of songs even from other languages while still remaining accurate. It will allow you to follow along with the song by giving you the lyrics. You wanna buy the song because you love it so much it allows you to or even just want to add it to a playlist you can. Can’t remember which song it is it gives you the choice of a 30 second preview or to play a YouTube video of it to hear the whole song. Wanna know more about the band or just that album it’ll let you. It’ll even tell you the exact date that it was released so it works wonders for music trivia as well and has helped me win so many bets against some of my teachers that as I was graduating and leaving that school they were still challenging me even to this day and it has yet to let me down
Good free app
by HappySnappy2018 on 2019/10/17 02:21
I enjoy this app as it is generally quick with identifying songs. I also enjoy the real time lyrics feature.
What happened to the lyrics?
by AnonimityGiraffe on 2019/10/17 00:49
When SoundHound identified a song it used to show lyrics, or “live lyrics”, which is the main reason I used this app. Can you bring lyrics, please?
Everywhere

Very handy app...
by StreetMedic380 on 2019/10/08 23:39
...but whatever changes they made in recent version(s) have caused a very annoying phenomenon. It almost never identifies a song on the first try, and instead says that it hears no music. Tap retry, and it instantly identifies the tune. I’m no app programmer, to be sure, but clearly there is some issue that has been introduced with SoundHound’s first attempt at listening to a song that disappears immediately once you “retry.” This has been ongoing for months, and by now has definitely seemed to go past “temporary fluke” status.
Awesome, Useful, Accurate!

I love having this app on my phone. It's useful for catching the name of a song I hear and like. Thank you sound hound! UPDATE: Has been glitchy lately and won’t identify any songs or connect to Facebook or Apple Music. The app is unusable like this.
Love it!
by bsgsjsbev on 2019/10/05 08:29
Was listening to burning heart by Elvis and noticed that it sounded exactly like this other song but I could not think of the song or lyrics ... sound hound helped me hum the melody of let my love open the door by Pete Townsend and I could sleep easy

❤️❤️❤️❤️ LOVE SOUNDHOUND!
by Musicislife1287 on 2018/01/24 21:48
LOVE this app. I use it all the time both for trying to remember a song I knew but forgot the artist or a new song that catches my ear. I have been a SoundHound users since what feels like the beginning. They have proven to be consistent and reliable. Which is quick and accurate results. One of the main reasons I love SoundHound is for the feature that no other app features. Which is live lyrics! That is by far one of the coolest most useful things about SoundHound! Being able to sing along (rather badly) with either a fav song or even a new song im obsessed with learning the lyrics to, the app is there for me :). SoundHound I felt has always tried to give the user what they want. Realizing its difficult to please everyone, I for one have been a very happy and satisfied customer since its launch. I tried the "other" guys and they were just too commercial for me. SoundHound was the right balance of finding new music without pushing the sales-y part of the music industry onto me. I love it for its accuracy, its fast results, and giving me MORE if I chose to know more. Its all there. Keep up the good work guys!
Return User - Excellent App!
by Coeur de Parisienne on 2018/08/30 16:20
So, my wife and I are music fiends; grew up on it, love most genres - well, except country but that’s for personal reasons no room to explain - whenever a song is played on a tv show or movie - or anywhere really - that catches our attention, we love to use our phones to find out who the artist is and song name. Well, we once used this app years ago; but as apps and space became an issue it sadly went away. Mainly because hey, “Siri has the same feature right?” Let me tell you this people: Siri has digressed in many ways since it’s period of amazing us. When Siri continues to take FOREVER to reply to the simple request of identifying the song - no, this is not a WiFi or network issue as most of you will agree - the song is OVER or the cutscene where the song is used is long gone and Siri still is identifying....well, we’ve had enough. This app is great, always has been. We are happy with its features and will NOT be using “you know who” for those requests anymore...or most other things these days...but that’s a different story. Great app keep up the good work developers!
SoundHound Rating
by GrandBeary on 2018/10/19 14:08
I LOVE Soundhound❣️ My husband introduced it to me about a year ago and I have used it to see who the artist of a song is, to see the lyrics on a song playing on the radio or my favorite TV Station “ Contemporary Christian Music”. It keeps a song I love on a playlist and can go back and listen to it again anytime I want to. There are so many things you can do and/or find out about a song, an artist, search for a song even if you only know part of the lyrics and it will 9out of 10 times find the name of the song and artist, I could go on and on about SoundHound it is my all time FAVORITE APP of all the millions you can get! My husband use to be my “SoundHound”. When I met him he was a DJ and knows who, what, when, where about most any song in any genre. Even though he knows so much about music he has SoundHound and loves it too. I figured he uses it to see if he is right about a song he heard. Again. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT❣️
One of the best apps-hands down!
by Bee Girl15 on 2018/09/14 17:50
I’ve been using SoundHound since 2011. Its probably the only app to maintained its status on all devices as well. Originally I used the other popular music ID app which (at the time) was totally 100% free. Although, very quickly paid upgrades emerged leaving the free end user restricted to a limited number of searches while being barraged w/ads & upgrades. By comparison, SoundHound is very straight forward, users are offered unlimited searches, a databank to save & favorite their search results, & purchase songs if they so choose. In 7yrs of using this app there’s been no lack of service. The SoundHound knowledge base has identified the most obscure songs playing in the background of tv commercials in NZ to instrumentals heard overhead in the health food store. Approx 10-12 of my searches resulted in no matches found, so the margin for error still exists but the gap is definitely narrowed.
Fantastic music app
by Dan-o-447 on 2018/10/03 14:53
This identification music app is super fast and very accurate. I’m good with music and can remember the tunes are lyrics but never remember the song name or artist, so this is perfect for me. It’s also fun to use if you’re out at a bar or sometimes with my parents a song will come on I just keep the phone on my lap activate SoundHound and then I know everything about this song, And they’re amazed I know so much about their old music. It’s great for the music industry also because if I hear a song while I’m out and want to buy it at least I will know what to search for otherwise you just hear the song and you’re not sure of the artist or name.
I Agree With Schimmityweb . . .
by HolyBoy69 on 2017/12/04 00:14
I totally agree with Schimmityweb Dude!!! Because for sometime now it seems they play this game of keeping up with the latest app features causing customers the one to ( PAY )for it (the Proverbial sense of paying for it). I’ve been with this app since nearly the beginning if not, and I have over the years written support regarding the change that has taken place with regards to lyrics. Especially when that was a feature that heavily touted when the app first started up. And that feature in itself was one of the main reason I signed up and have tried to maintain loyalty to the app / SoundHound. But I guess the loyalty aspect is only one way. I should be loyal, but they don’t have to because there is always someone else to take my place. A sign of the times. But is it really asking to much to have an app that delivers the title of the song and the right lyrics as the core of the service no matter what else is enhanced or added to that service??? In my opinion the core of the service should NOT be lost because of updates or add-ons’ or enhancements.
Glitchy, doesn’t recognize any songs
by Nb head on 2019/05/10 06:32
I’ve used this app a million times in the past with great results. Today I tried singing a song I know some of the lyrics to and all of the melody but can’t find. It says there are no close matches, even though off the top of my head I know this song sounds musically similar to a lot of songs, so that surprised me. Then just to see what was up I hummed the fully melody to Womanizer by Britney Spears. It said there were no close matches. I did it again, same thing. What...? Then I sang womanizer with the lyrics and then it recognized it. I hummed the full melody, again said there were no matches, Something is wrong with this, it never needed perfect lyrics before to recognize a popular melody, or even an obscure melody. I can see that other reviewers are saying something is broken too. Can you guys please fix this? Why would this app that recognized a very short fragment of a hummed Beethoven symphony two years ago, suddenly not recognize the hummed fully melody of womanizer? Something is clearly wrong here.

Again...another app gone commercial. Customer satisfaction no longer exists, just numbers... What once was, no longer exists... I still have this app on an Old phone. Works totally different there, like it should be working today! I forgot about this app after a couple of phones. One day, I came across it again and decided to download it. What a Mistake! I remember when no one knew about this app. I/We, would actually have to help them build their library. I would play songs, then, as per their request when the music could not be found, I would enter the information for the music! Classical, indie pop, classic jazz, oldies but goldies, underground, and on, and on... WE made this app! Now, after all OUR help building THEIR library, they give us this horrible app. Can't just find the song and add it to your library, can't even Listen to it unless you want to Pay for more Options. What a Ripoff! Too bad WE can't have a Wiki-type music app!?!? So Sad.
Appreciative but disappointed
by IttyBittyGirl24 on 2018/06/01 22:56
I am fairly new to the SoundHound world, so far I have really enjoyed learning ALL the different features SoundHound offers. I’m not tech savvy in the least so it’s taking longer than it would most to find all these great features. The experience has been great, but, I have to say on one song I was truly disappointed with the playback I received. One of my all time favorites is Back in Black by AC/DC, the playback was a live in concert version. When I heard that come over my speakers, I just dropped my head, SO DISAPPOINTED! Other than that, I have been extremely happy with Sound Hound, I’ve been recommending y’all to everyone 🙂 Oh yeah, you really don’t have to be tech savvy, AT ALL, to use Sound Hound, that’s just to show you how bad at it I am 😊
Best app ever
by christina724 on 2018/11/03 02:33
Me and my friends have been trying to find this song from a club for a year and half. We have one single video that is 4 seconds and we have been using every app out there to try to find this song. Nothing could detect it, but we discovered this app, and it recognized the song with only a 4 second video. This app saved my well being and saved me from going insane trying to find this song. I have been listening to it on repeat and say a prayer every day thanking the creators of this app. I’m planning on cooking a thanksgiving meal in honor of this app. THANK YOU FOR THIS BLESSING. Thank you, A desperate women
Amazing!
by KerlyK on 2019/04/28 19:36
How in heck the developers did it, programmed this HUGE library of recognition--or whatever it would be called to techies--is so amazing! I mean, everything I've thrown at it, it's recognized. High praise & accolades to what should be an award-winning app! Thank you for the ability to use it without a subscription, for I don't do subscriptions. People, especially younger people, don't see just how much of their lifetime's assets for their later years are being irretrievably given away for immediate gratification on this and that. The subscription economy is great wealth for the subscribed-to company at too high a price for those average joes
Dumb greed
by migshel on 2019/01/25 00:18
I used this app for years and it was great for last minute tunes you want to know about or tunes that is at the end and you want to find out who the artist is but now recently they have video advertising that totally kills the whole functionality of this app. So u heard a song u want to know who it is, u open this app u click on the listen button and instead of it listening to see who the artist is you get a video ad that plays while ur missing the opportunity to know what song and who the artist is. This is where something good becomes something bad. I know they have to make money but this totally kills the whole reason why the app was created. What’s wrong with regular type non-video ads.
Love love love
by Dixiegurltlw on 2018/07/29 00:05
I love this app, it’s everything I’ve ever needed for a music app.. tags every song I hear within seconds- songs on the radio, in the grocery store, in a restaurant, on a tv commercial- you name it, it knows it! Then it gives a complete bio on the band, links to their other music/albums, plus lyrics (usually) and a link to buy the song or just favorite it to your playlist. I brag on it all the time! Don’t use that other app (Shazam🤮) this is the best one out there! I’ve been a subscriber for almost 8 years, and it just keeps getting better and better.❤️ Just do it.
New update ruined it.
by Schmittywebermangensen on 2017/10/10 15:58
I always thought this was better than Shazam. But I’m switching back. Before this app would immediately pop up lyrics for whatever you were listening to (which was probably the highlight of this app in my opinion), but not anymore. They’re now trying too hard to keep up with this thing everyone is doing when they talk to their devices. Which I think is dumb, unnecessary, and a trade down from previous features. Now they’re persistent on having you make an account and attach your Facebook and a bunch of unnecessary crap. I just want to know what song I’m listening to, and I’d like the option to see what lyrics go with it! That too much to ask for?!
SoundHound completes my life
by SaltShaker216 on 2018/01/13 03:35
So many times I have desperately wanted to know the name of a song... these songs touched me in a certain way and made me feel... the prospect of not knowing what the title or artist saddened me and then SoundHound came along and now my life is complete... as a bonus, there is a wonderful feature that saves searches in a history file... after using the app for a while I discovered the search history and decided it would make an awesome iTunes playlist and SoundHound Vol 1 was born... again completeness 🌝
What happened??
by Malikukai on 2018/08/11 16:42
I used to LOVE this app! I used it to search for almost every song I heard because I am a music junkie but ironically I’m not the best at remembering artists’ names or what songs are sung by which artists. Lately however, very very very RARELY is this app able to identify a single song! If it does, its only if its a total chart topper or extremely simple. But pretty much all songs come up with zero matches & absolutely no guesses as to which song it might be. Now I’m not sure when the paid version of this app was released or if that’s even relevant... Unfortunately I’m a little suspicious that this lack of song identifying is a tactic to get customers to spend money on the paid version of this app because this free one no longer works & is anything but helpful or reliable. Disappointed for sure!
Was a 5 Star now just a 3 star
by User100000 on 2018/08/17 23:53
I’ve had this app for years and I absolutely love the features and the UI but.... I have thousands (almost 10,000) of songs stored on my phone but it will only let me access playlists. Now I know I can fool the app by saving my library as a playlist but.... I lose a lot of functionality by doing so. I would 5 Star love the app if it was a legitimate player as well as a music find, identify, and share/purchase app. And I agree with another reviewer. The map part rocks. I do use it to search for new music based on other users who seem to share my very broad tastes in music. I hardly use the app now though as I am too limited in my library access.
From Hero to Zero
by HateBreedsRage on 2018/01/10 00:41
Sound hound was always my app of choice for song identification. I could quickly open it, tap the large button, and close the app all without taking my eyes off the road. Then later I could check my history to see the info about the song. That’s how it worked for what seemed like years. That is until the most recent time I open the app to check my history and I’m greeted with a message saying to register to see my history. All those songs that I hadn’t gotten around to acquiring are now gone in some void, replaced with a screen begging for a registration. I immediately deleted the app. I’m not opposed the registering an account, but to hold my identified songs hostage to fluff up your user base is BS. I went back to Shazam.
Might need update
by EBtheWanderer on 2019/05/10 01:31
Been using SoundCloud for years and I love it. It’s recently been auto playing ads *with sound* , which of course negates any music it’s going to hear in the background. I don’t mind the video ads, I understand the need to make money. Buttttt...kill the auto sound playing, it can’t even hear the songs. Am still giving it five stars since I use it all the time and will assume they’ll fix this issue, am just trying to bring this to their attention.
Really good
by MrsLJ on 2019/04/27 16:20
App is easily five stars if they improved the quality over Bluetooth. I also do not like that the app defaults to not using Bluetooth because this means that any Bluetooth devices you have will be automatically disconnected when you open the app. The app also gets 4stars because it will get a song wrong around 5 to 10% of the time if you’re using it while on the road when there’s ambient driving noise. Unfortunately this is the only time I actually am using the app. To know what the song on the radio is.
Used to be great...
by ScrabbleNut on 2018/06/23 12:11
SoundHound used to be great. It would find any song, you were able to type in some lyrics and find the song you were looking g for. I bought a lot of music from songs i found here. But something has changed with this app. Today i was trying to find (once again) a song i remembered by Earth Wind and Fire. When i typed it in, i didn’t even get the artist. I got a handful of songs, most of which weren’t even sung by them. The album section had 2 of their albums and a bunch of karaoke albums. WTH! where are songs? Where are the dozens of albums they’ve made? What is going on? After using this app for years do i have go looking for a decent music app? I am not happy about this. At all.
Another Has Been...
by Oncfari on 2017/10/08 18:18
This used to be a great app — but no more. Now it takes me thru some random set of BS every time I try to ID a song. Half the time the song is over by the time I finally get back to the song search function. Also, it makes a lot more mistakes (some I think are intentional to sell other music) and often returns zero results, which was previously rare to non-existent. Another example of change for the sake of change killing the golden goose!
useless - hummung or whistling is not working
by Sesamme on 2019/10/21 09:57
I had a song stuck in my head (it still is) but could only remember the melody. SoundHound sounded like a solution, but alas - too good to be true - it couldn’t find anything by whistling or by humming. Then I tried to hum and whistle very famous songs like Yesterday, or Halleluya - it didn’t find them either! Sometimes it was showing some unrelated results in Chinese, but mostly - nothing. Then I tried to sing them with words, and finally - voila, it works! So - it’s almost useless, because if I know the words, I can find a song anyway... Also - in the free version, the ad is often obscuring the button, so I must stop and restart the search. Don’t understand the 5 star ratings...
Beyond Amazing
by Colecast1213 on 2019/07/07 00:13
Had an obscure soundtrack song stuck in my head and it was killing me that I couldn’t remember what movie it was from. Being a soundtrack, classical style song with no lyrics, there’s nothing I could Google to figure it out. I stumbled onto mention of this app, and that it could look up songs based on humming, so I thought, “what the hell.” I’m not even that good at humming, and first try, it nailed it (turned out to be “Arrival To Earth” from Transformers). I’m beyond impressed. So long Shazam!
What Happen
by LQROC on 2018/04/06 16:20
When this app first came out years ago it was awesome. It was able to find it starts songs that Shazam could not do ever sense and for the past year and in the updates in the search engine is not functional. App over Shazam but now it can’t at times pull the most recent songs or artists. The response time of the search engine is Eva slow. There is no doubt in comparing the two apps that Shazam has gotten an edge over this app. You guys know from experience that your app is not up to par with Shazam please make me a believer in next Suzanne wants the better search engine music app and I will go back to reading this a five star
Muhammad’s SoundHound review
by Afroblue of Yale on 2018/09/08 17:40
Sound hound finds 90% of the songs I seek to identify. But in new music genres it sometimes does not recognize, but this is a problem with all the music recognition services. This may not be an issue for most users. I am a musician, professional dancer and instructor, a DJ and an academic - so my needs are extensive. On the whole, as a sound hound user for many years, l recommend it. I do to all my students. The latest feature of tying it to playlist is wonderful. Thank You
Wonderful app
by AppAHollic24 on 2019/03/06 04:04
I absolutely love this incredible application. It has helped me out so much when out and about and I hear a song that I enjoy I just open up the app and click on the orange button and let it listen to the song and quickly it tells me the song title and the artist couldn’t ask for a more wonderful app that does identify songs quickly even if you’re not right next to where the song is coming from.
My go-to ‘what’s that song playing?’ app :D
by AnGee91 on 2018/09/29 06:50
My dad had this app on one of the earliest iPhone generations (before I had my own phone) & I made sure I downloaded this when I got a phone in my hands. I love it. I wish it was able to detect more multicultural songs as well, but it’s also shown me so many that it just overrides that comment, because I knows it’s developing more & more. A very cool thing: it saves the songs you’ve had it listen & you can go to that at anytime✨
Convenient as it is awesome
by Jewlz712 on 2018/03/23 02:47
Ever heard a song on the radio that you loved, but the DJ didn’t say the name or even who it was? Doesn’t that make you mad? Well will this app, all you have to do is pull it up and press the center a button, takes a few seconds and it tells you the song, artist, album, and even gives you links to buy the song. It also has a lyric scroll so you can sing along. There’s really nothing bad to say about it. I love it.
Happy, Happy, Happy!
by Stillbuggin on 2017/12/07 16:05
I guess one would think I was happy with Sound Hound! I've had a blast with this app over the years. Recently, I looked up a title and artist for my 90 year old ex-mother in law. To see the joy in her eyes as she was able to sing along, and and hear her comments made this app so worth it in my book. "I remember that song!" I've periodically had to look up lyrics, but I'm fine with that. I've always enjoyed Sound Hound and GLW, I'll continue in the future!
What used to be great is now uselesss...
by MisterEBox on 2017/12/23 23:05
Awful. Tried to identify ‘Red Right Hand’ by Iggy Pop & Jarvis Cocker. Took about ten tries and then when I try to play it, a little window opens with a picture of Iggy Pop, playing some instrumental elevator loop with a description of the actual song I want to hear but not the song itself. I don’t need a description, I’m quite capable of describing it myself thank you, I want to hear the song. Also- it’s not convenient to ‘talk’ out loud to an app unless you’re driving a car. When trying to improve the app, try leaving the elements that brought people to it in the first place alone. i.e.: Don’t try and fix what isn’t broken. Useless, what happened to this app?
Best sound fetching app ever!!
by Angelito123$ on 2018/03/26 04:03
Ever hear a song on the go or on the radio, and wonder who’s that jamming out!!! Well gurl! Don’t be stupid! Sound hound that song!!! Love the way it also maps out where it was used and what song that was. Honestly, I use it as my personal passport to mark my conquests around the world!!! Love the way it quickly and effortlessly it gives you the option to connect to your iTunes in so many ways! Just download it and check it out!
Can’t identify singing or humming well at all
by Hugusdamoos on 2019/04/26 15:12
I’m a musician so I can sing on key. I tried singing Steve Miller Band’s “Space Cowboy”, Duke Ellington’s “Take The A Train”, Jefferson Airplane’s “Lather”, and Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” The latter was the only tune SoundHound could recognize. The first few times I sang the songs without lyrics, just scatting or humming; the next few times I actually sang the lyrics. No results for any of them except “Moondance.” So the song you are trying to get this app to recognize had better be extremely obvious, in which case you probably already knew the name of the song to begin with! Pretty poor app for song identification using voice. Deleted.

I LOVE this app! I use SoundHound all the time! It’s especially great to have when I hear a song I like but don’t know who it is or name of the song. I pull up SoundHound and in no time I’ve got the name of the song and artist. I love that lyrics are provided (when available). I’ve bragged up SoundHound to all my friends and family and there are a few that knew a good thing when they hear it. Now they are sharing in the wonderful world of SoundHound! Thanks for a great app!!
Oh what app
by Nice2spice on 2019/03/22 21:08
Hi I just want to say how much I enjoy this app. It’s so nice to be able to see the lyrics, I stopped listening to the words along time ago. I’d listen to the rhythms, Sing the chorus part ,but that’s all I would know, never knowing exactly what the was about. Can’t say I haven’t blushed a few times, after I realized what the lyrics were. This app brings me back to some great memories and really helps to keep me up with current music. thank you so much for this app
Better with time
by Aj2100c on 2018/07/29 23:23
This app gets better with time. Now that it has undergone several versions, it runs faster. Another neat and fun feature is being able to open a map and see and hear what others are discovering. Of course, when you’re looking for a song, that gets shared too. And, I don’t mind sharing the tunes I find when I go out there. Being able to she’s that with the world is the beauty of this app.
Opening time.
by drummerboy 777 on 2018/10/23 12:15
I love Sound Hound! But I would give 5 stars of the app or the live tile in the side menu would open or react faster cause I lose a lot of time waiting on it to open. Sometimes I even miss the opportunity to get new music cause I'm having to wait for the app to open! Faster openings or "instant on, or more Mic access!" Abilities!!! Where maybe the second you touch the listening button, it Instantly starts recording but after the app finally opens....... It will realize what it just recorded and act appropriately at THAT point? Just a suggestion......? Maybe?
SoundHound review
by sejrec56 on 2017/12/14 16:17
My review is that SoundHound works incredibly well. When I think of all the years I’d hear a song and the DJ wouldn’t say who the artist was, now most of the time SoundHound answers that for me. But 25 percent of the time it can’t figure out what the song is or artist. How does SoundHound determine who the song or artist is? Anyways SoundHound have become indispensable for me. Being a musician myself I’m glad I can find out who it was I heard and even had a bio on the group, artist or writer! Thanks creators of sound hound!
Who would have thought...
by Greenchristian on 2019/10/28 05:26
This is an amazing app. If you love music, and have ever heard part of any music, and wished you knew what it is, this is definitely one app to get. I’ve used it in a car with radio on, or watching something on tv that sounds familiar, and even been in a grocery store and wondered what was the music playing overhead. Who would have ever thought something like this was possible. Just too amazing.
Kinda Fun
by Arpy123 on 2018/07/11 04:25
I love a lot of different kinds of music and sooooo many times I love a song and know nothing about it. I can’t find it unless it had a distinctive lyric. But this identifies so much faster and up come the lyrics and the album cover so it is fun. I’ve added so many songs because I finally can find my favorites from movies and tv. Even works in a store with a soundtrack playing. I just now realized how much I use it and love it.
Bluetooth issue
by RUNNINGONMT on 2019/09/08 22:36
You’ve made a critical mistake with this version. Whenever I’m in My car listening to a song, then open SoundHound to identify the song do I can see the lyrics, SoundHound immediately connects to Bluetooth and then the song can no longer be heard. Have to then turn off my phone Bluetooth, which disconnects my phone speaker from my car, so i can’t talk on the phone without delinking my phone to me car. Such a Hassle!!! Not worth it, so I use Shazam.
I really like this app
by Loves_Lucy_ on 2018/09/09 19:42
So many times I have come across a song that I like and don’t know the name of. I always click on this app and it never fails to tell me the names of my favorite songs. Within about 20 seconds or so it gives me the name, the artist and the album name. I do wish the lyrics would pop up on all the songs. Most of the songs have lyrics that you can follow with, but there are some that don’t. Overall I love this app and will use it for songs to come.
Love SoundHound
by iKathi08 on 2018/10/09 12:06
I love music all kinds of music old new and in between. With SoundHound I am able to identify and have access to songs I used to have to wonder about for months, years or sometimes never finding out about. Some people don’t like change and the low ratings are not warranted. I can honestly say my experience and love for music has been greatly enhanced by having and using the SoundHound app. Thank you!
It works
by Bojoco on 2018/07/11 20:51
I love this app, simply because it fulfills a frequent need of mine, to identify new music that I like. I’m hearing a song I like, I want to know what it is and how to get it, and all I have to do is activate Sound Hound. Within seconds I have that information, it’s stored within the app for future reference, and I can relax and peruse my results at leisure later on. It also has live lyrics, and being a lyric hound, I find this invaluable. Thanks!
Very handy app...
by StreetMedic380 on 2019/10/08 23:39
...but whatever changes they made in recent version(s) have caused a very annoying phenomenon. It almost never identifies a song on the first try, and instead says that it hears no music. Tap retry, and it instantly identifies the tune. I’m no app programmer, to be sure, but clearly there is some issue that has been introduced with SoundHound’s first attempt at listening to a song that disappears immediately once you “retry.” This has been ongoing for months, and by now has definitely seemed to go past “temporary fluke” status.
Better than Shazam
by Ben Kleschinsky on 2018/11/19 04:45
Apple destroyed the Shazam app because you now need to be connected to WiFi to use it. SoundHound can be used everywhere, and not only that their interface is a lot smoother an faster. You can close the app and continue to listen to music unlike Shazam. You can also tap to stop listening at any moment, unlike Shazam which has stopped innovating. Five stars from me!
Sound
by B1967511 on 2018/06/15 14:48
This app has been one of my favorites for many years, it’s Genius! when I hear music whether it be on the radio or watching television and hear music tracks in a movie or TV show it’s amazing that I can just be able to tap this app identify it by it save it to my devices it’s awesome. The creators of this are brilliant! There are so many amazing talented artists out there that can be discovered with this app.
Not as good as it used to be
by silly jazz on 2018/08/23 10:00
I’ve used SoundHound for years and it’s been my best and favorite resource for finding music, even international! But as of late I’ve noticed it’s not only unable to find some songs even with clear sound, it’s not even saving songs it does find in my history and I have not been able to go back and listen to or download them. It hasn’t saved anything - discovery or pending - in almost a month! Disappointed to say the least. Guess I’ll have to try Shazam for a time.
Dance mama tool
by Hugie.234 on 2017/12/30 23:32
When my dancer is taking a class, I like to figure out what the song is and this app will usually get it first before the other apps. (We dance moms have to entertain ourselves! Lol!) I love the lyrics section on this app. Again, when darling dancer is in class sometimes we are just liking the beat. I like to know what the singer is saying. I have had this app for 7 years! I like the link to buy the music too.

Whenever I open the app, my headphones disconnect? and won’t connect again until I shut down the app completely.

Used to be the best
by wyaeiga on 2019/11/13 01:07
Now this thing is absolute trash at identifying anything that’s not a top 40 song. Shazam is better than this by such a wide margin now it’s unbelievable almost.
Love this app!
by KK Greenville on 2019/11/12 18:42
It’s great to be able to hear a song, use the app and find out the song, artist and lyrics!
Sound hound is the best music searching app in the whole universe i just love it
by Owiata on 2019/11/12 07:28
App is too dope ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Doesn’t work with Spotify playlist
by Kayshub on 2019/11/12 04:34
Make it support Spotify as well
🥰🎶
by brownsoulflower on 2019/11/12 04:12
I have had sound hound for years maybe a little after they launched and I’m surprised they were able to keep the app with updated functionality with no interruptions. The icing on the cake is that I can easily add it to my iTunes♥️🎶🎶 music lover! SH I would love to see an update that allows notifications when an unrecognized song is updated to the data base🤔
Love it!
by Flower Garden Lover on 2019/11/12 04:07

Not a good start

I decided to try this app. I’ve tried identifying about eight well known current and older songs. The app got one right.

Bluetooth Connection
by sgma45 on 2019/11/10 03:24
This is a very good app, but it can be better. Make it easier to connect via Bluetooth. Currently, it’s connecting but no sound. For instance, when I connect from my cellphone to my Amazon Echo Show I hear NO music from my Echo Show the music plays continually on my cellphone!
Good app
by Riushdi on 2019/11/10 03:01
I love it , every time I love a song. You got the answer. Thank you
Only in portrait mode?
by IOS needs it on 2019/11/10 02:15
Is this app even available to use in landscape mode? I use an iPad in my car for navigation, but in landscape mode. Seeing the lyrics for some older songs is a plus on longer trips, but not when the iPad is in the portrait position! Searching the net I read that the app for Android works in landscape, why not the same for iOS?
Can you find any R&B songs 👎🏾
by nooffender on 2019/11/10 01:07
I searched for 2 r&b songs and couldn’t find any.... soooo if you have any soul this isn’t for you 😒
I Love SoundHound
by Megan🥰🥰🥰 on 2019/11/09 18:47
I Love SoundHound Because It’s Fun To Sing Along. But One Of Problem Is That People Make The Videos Short And Can Hear All Of It and It Drives Me Crazy I Hope That Changes. Next Problem Is It Makes Me Have To Download YouTube Bc SoundHound Dossnt Have Every Old Song And People Make Accounts On This And Shorten Songs Then Hack Them Onto The Artists Songs. Last Problem Is It Shortens My Volume When I’ve Been Listening To It For A Half And Hour And It Didn’t Do It The first Time I Got SoundHound. I Love SoundHound🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰 Plz Eccept This Message
Useless

It doesn’t work as they say, you need to play a song for make it working, you can’t use your voice or whistle. I prefer Shazam instead of this sht
Easy to use!
by mamamia319 on 2019/11/09 17:23
Awesome app with quick responses and accuracy!! Easy to use!!
Definitely useful
by MyChemicalPilotsDisco on 2019/11/09 15:09
Very useful. You know when you are at a restaurant or whatever, and a song you like will come on, but you don’t know what it’s called? With this you can easily access the title and artist of that song. Also when you have a Sony stuck in your head but you don’t know what it is you can just hum into your phone and it will come up. You can also search up lyrics, a feature I don’t use all that often because you can use google for it but still useful. You can even connect to Spotify to listen to the song.
I love you sound hound

Great for naming memoriees

Not Optimal for Interacting with other apps
by Linzeefer on 2019/11/03 20:36
Suggestion: Let outside Bluetooth stay connected while search is occurring in other app. In my instance Spotify. Won’t run continuously while I look at lyrics. I deleted app then realized it’s the best search. Hook us up.
Most Useful App!
by Busycat23 on 2019/11/03 19:43
This app has answered artist/song questions that I’ve had since I was like 7! Thank you!
Fer real tho
by bkrautwurst on 2019/11/03 05:50
Yo what’s the point of a lyrics app if it’s not intelligent enough to let me keep listening to the song on my AirPods when I have this app on? Dummies.
Great app

Used to be good
by OneSidedAngel20 on 2019/11/02 00:32
There was a time where Sound Hound was good. It was able to pick up almost every song and not crash. Now, when you try to see what a song is called; it will crash and it almost never gets the song right. Almost every single time I’ve used this app after all the updates that had been done, the it will crash and say “there is no information on this song” or whatever it says. Which is bull because I have the sound up enough on the radio, tv, or phone. I’ve been seriously tempted to uninstall this app and never come back. You guys need to fix this crap.
Nice App
by Wallandwench on 2019/10/29 21:37
I’m amazed at the accuracy even on obscure songs.
Great

Have used SoundHound for years and absolutely love it. It’s without competition identifying songs. Can even whistle. And the auto add feature is super useful! Thank you guys!!!
Great!
by FranChessK on 2019/10/28 19:11
When I listen to the radio and hear songs I don’t know this is a great app to find out what the song is called and whose singing it. It rarely can’t find what I want to know!
Good

Helps musicians a lot.
Who would have thought...
by Greenchristian on 2019/10/28 05:26
This is an amazing app. If you love music, and have ever heard part of any music, and wished you knew what it is, this is definitely one app to get. I’ve used it in a car with radio on, or watching something on tv that sounds familiar, and even been in a grocery store and wondered what was the music playing overhead. Who would have ever thought something like this was possible. Just too amazing.
Good service

Great for singing along, too
by @ParentAtTheDsco on 2019/10/27 19:15
Picks up the song titles even on live covers, and the Live Lyrics are a big hit at parties when we can only half-remember the words!

Good at finding a song but it still needs work.
by Athena Minerva on 2019/10/25 04:45
Don’t get me wrong I’m in love with this app but when I need to find a song even if it’s just a quick clip for some reason no match has come up. I put the music up higher and put the microphone close and it still can’t find it. What can I do about finding my favorite song?
Sound Hound is Awesome!

half is the name of the game
by Name-not-used-yet on 2019/10/24 19:47
The app works ok. Half of the time. It identifies some songs right, some are way off. The joker card of ‘various artists’ is the biggest problem. In the past it was dead on, almost 100%. The slide happened sometime 2 years ago. If it keeps up and accuracy does not improve, i’m gone. Lately, unless i’m on the wifi, it finds nothing. Easy songs like Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppeln or Jump by Van Halen. Nope, no bueno. Not sure why...
Would definitely recommend
by Jose2023 on 2019/10/23 20:05

I LOVE SoundHound!

It is the best app I’ve found so far to identify songs!! It is also so awesome it can automatically add it to my Apple Music library!!
Suddenly SoundHound can’t identify songs?
by CEF1998 on 2019/10/23 16:10
The app is no longer identifying pretty common songs like Soundgarden, etc. What’s going on?? I have used this wonderful app for years...

Best song ID app out there!
Best songfinder but same bad lyrics
by Optoutname on 2019/10/22 15:53
Every single online lyrics service is written by ignorant and lazy listeners who fill things in instead of researching the real lyrics (“Nailed down to the bed” instead of “New York down to the Bay” for example). It’s disappointed Soundhound made the mistake of incorporating these lazy liars’ misleading garbage, but other than that it is superior to every other song-identification app, including Shazam.
Explore new music
by MEjr. on 2019/10/22 13:43
This app is the absolute best. I enjoy the opportunity to listen to random radio station’s capturing the song lyrics or even the melody. Then you can create new experiences in your music genre, broadening your listening horizon.
useless - hummung or whistling is not working
by Sesamme on 2019/10/21 09:57
I had a song stuck in my head (it still is) but could only remember the melody. SoundHound sounded like a solution, but alas - too good to be true - it couldn’t find anything by whistling or by humming. Then I tried to hum and whistle very famous songs like Yesterday, or Halleluya - it didn’t find them either! Sometimes it was showing some unrelated results in Chinese, but mostly - nothing. Then I tried to sing them with words, and finally - voila, it works! So - it’s almost useless, because if I know the words, I can find a song anyway... Also - in the free version, the ad is often obscuring the button, so I must stop and restart the search. Don’t understand the 5 star ratings...

by jsfan320 on 2019/10/21 05:18
I have been looking for this song since I was like 16 (I’m 36 now) and the tune was always in my head but not the lyrics so I couldn’t even google the lyrics. My off beat humming a small part of the song I was looking for on this app and bam!!! Thank you SoundHound!!!!!! #incredible :)

by LittleMan15086 on 2019/10/17 03:05
I have been using this app for years and it has helped me figure out thousands of songs even from other languages while still remaining accurate. It will allow you to follow along with the song by giving you the lyrics. You wanna buy the song because you love it so much it allows you to or even just want to add it to a playlist you can. Can’t remember which song it is it gives you the choice of a 30 second preview or to play a YouTube video of it to hear the whole song. Wanna know more about the band or just that album it’ll let you. It’ll even tell you the exact date that it was released so it works wonders for music trivia as well and has helped me win so many bets against some of my teachers that as I was graduating and leaving that school they were still challenging me even to this day and it has yet to let me down
Good free app
by HappySnappy2018 on 2019/10/17 02:21
I enjoy this app as it is generally quick with identifying songs. I also enjoy the real time lyrics feature.
What happened to the lyrics?
by AnonimityGiraffe on 2019/10/17 00:49
When SoundHound identified a song it used to show lyrics, or “live lyrics”, which is the main reason I used this app. Can you bring lyrics, please?
Everywhere

I use Sound Hound everywhere. In a store or restaurant from a song I heard. Even at home from a commercial. I tell everyone!

Very handy app...
by StreetMedic380 on 2019/10/08 23:39
...but whatever changes they made in recent version(s) have caused a very annoying phenomenon. It almost never identifies a song on the first try, and instead says that it hears no music. Tap retry, and it instantly identifies the tune. I’m no app programmer, to be sure, but clearly there is some issue that has been introduced with SoundHound’s first attempt at listening to a song that disappears immediately once you “retry.” This has been ongoing for months, and by now has definitely seemed to go past “temporary fluke” status.
Awesome, Useful, Accurate!
by 12345678910987654321countdown on 2019/10/08 04:01
I love having this app on my phone. It's useful for catching the name of a song I hear and like. Thank you sound hound! UPDATE: Has been glitchy lately and won’t identify any songs or connect to Facebook or Apple Music. The app is unusable like this.
Love it!
by bsgsjsbev on 2019/10/05 08:29
Was listening to burning heart by Elvis and noticed that it sounded exactly like this other song but I could not think of the song or lyrics ... sound hound helped me hum the melody of let my love open the door by Pete Townsend and I could sleep easy

❤️❤️❤️❤️ LOVE SOUNDHOUND!
by Musicislife1287 on 2018/01/24 21:48
LOVE this app. I use it all the time both for trying to remember a song I knew but forgot the artist or a new song that catches my ear. I have been a SoundHound users since what feels like the beginning. They have proven to be consistent and reliable. Which is quick and accurate results. One of the main reasons I love SoundHound is for the feature that no other app features. Which is live lyrics! That is by far one of the coolest most useful things about SoundHound! Being able to sing along (rather badly) with either a fav song or even a new song im obsessed with learning the lyrics to, the app is there for me :). SoundHound I felt has always tried to give the user what they want. Realizing its difficult to please everyone, I for one have been a very happy and satisfied customer since its launch. I tried the "other" guys and they were just too commercial for me. SoundHound was the right balance of finding new music without pushing the sales-y part of the music industry onto me. I love it for its accuracy, its fast results, and giving me MORE if I chose to know more. Its all there. Keep up the good work guys!
Return User - Excellent App!

So, my wife and I are music fiends; grew up on it, love most genres - well, except country but that’s for personal reasons no room to explain - whenever a song is played on a tv show or movie - or anywhere really - that catches our attention, we love to use our phones to find out who the artist is and song name. Well, we once used this app years ago; but as apps and space became an issue it sadly went away. Mainly because hey, “Siri has the same feature right?” Let me tell you this people: Siri has digressed in many ways since it’s period of amazing us. When Siri continues to take FOREVER to reply to the simple request of identifying the song - no, this is not a WiFi or network issue as most of you will agree - the song is OVER or the cutscene where the song is used is long gone and Siri still is identifying....well, we’ve had enough. This app is great, always has been. We are happy with its features and will NOT be using “you know who” for those requests anymore...or most other things these days...but that’s a different story. Great app keep up the good work developers!
SoundHound Rating
by GrandBeary on 2018/10/19 14:08
I LOVE Soundhound❣️ My husband introduced it to me about a year ago and I have used it to see who the artist of a song is, to see the lyrics on a song playing on the radio or my favorite TV Station “ Contemporary Christian Music”. It keeps a song I love on a playlist and can go back and listen to it again anytime I want to. There are so many things you can do and/or find out about a song, an artist, search for a song even if you only know part of the lyrics and it will 9out of 10 times find the name of the song and artist, I could go on and on about SoundHound it is my all time FAVORITE APP of all the millions you can get! My husband use to be my “SoundHound”. When I met him he was a DJ and knows who, what, when, where about most any song in any genre. Even though he knows so much about music he has SoundHound and loves it too. I figured he uses it to see if he is right about a song he heard. Again. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT❣️
One of the best apps-hands down!
by Bee Girl15 on 2018/09/14 17:50
I’ve been using SoundHound since 2011. Its probably the only app to maintained its status on all devices as well. Originally I used the other popular music ID app which (at the time) was totally 100% free. Although, very quickly paid upgrades emerged leaving the free end user restricted to a limited number of searches while being barraged w/ads & upgrades. By comparison, SoundHound is very straight forward, users are offered unlimited searches, a databank to save & favorite their search results, & purchase songs if they so choose. In 7yrs of using this app there’s been no lack of service. The SoundHound knowledge base has identified the most obscure songs playing in the background of tv commercials in NZ to instrumentals heard overhead in the health food store. Approx 10-12 of my searches resulted in no matches found, so the margin for error still exists but the gap is definitely narrowed.
Fantastic music app
by Dan-o-447 on 2018/10/03 14:53
This identification music app is super fast and very accurate. I’m good with music and can remember the tunes are lyrics but never remember the song name or artist, so this is perfect for me. It’s also fun to use if you’re out at a bar or sometimes with my parents a song will come on I just keep the phone on my lap activate SoundHound and then I know everything about this song, And they’re amazed I know so much about their old music. It’s great for the music industry also because if I hear a song while I’m out and want to buy it at least I will know what to search for otherwise you just hear the song and you’re not sure of the artist or name.
I Agree With Schimmityweb . . .
by HolyBoy69 on 2017/12/04 00:14
I totally agree with Schimmityweb Dude!!! Because for sometime now it seems they play this game of keeping up with the latest app features causing customers the one to ( PAY )for it (the Proverbial sense of paying for it). I’ve been with this app since nearly the beginning if not, and I have over the years written support regarding the change that has taken place with regards to lyrics. Especially when that was a feature that heavily touted when the app first started up. And that feature in itself was one of the main reason I signed up and have tried to maintain loyalty to the app / SoundHound. But I guess the loyalty aspect is only one way. I should be loyal, but they don’t have to because there is always someone else to take my place. A sign of the times. But is it really asking to much to have an app that delivers the title of the song and the right lyrics as the core of the service no matter what else is enhanced or added to that service??? In my opinion the core of the service should NOT be lost because of updates or add-ons’ or enhancements.
Glitchy, doesn’t recognize any songs
by Nb head on 2019/05/10 06:32
I’ve used this app a million times in the past with great results. Today I tried singing a song I know some of the lyrics to and all of the melody but can’t find. It says there are no close matches, even though off the top of my head I know this song sounds musically similar to a lot of songs, so that surprised me. Then just to see what was up I hummed the fully melody to Womanizer by Britney Spears. It said there were no close matches. I did it again, same thing. What...? Then I sang womanizer with the lyrics and then it recognized it. I hummed the full melody, again said there were no matches, Something is wrong with this, it never needed perfect lyrics before to recognize a popular melody, or even an obscure melody. I can see that other reviewers are saying something is broken too. Can you guys please fix this? Why would this app that recognized a very short fragment of a hummed Beethoven symphony two years ago, suddenly not recognize the hummed fully melody of womanizer? Something is clearly wrong here.

by zingin-in-the-tune on 2018/01/12 09:59
Again...another app gone commercial. Customer satisfaction no longer exists, just numbers... What once was, no longer exists... I still have this app on an Old phone. Works totally different there, like it should be working today! I forgot about this app after a couple of phones. One day, I came across it again and decided to download it. What a Mistake! I remember when no one knew about this app. I/We, would actually have to help them build their library. I would play songs, then, as per their request when the music could not be found, I would enter the information for the music! Classical, indie pop, classic jazz, oldies but goldies, underground, and on, and on... WE made this app! Now, after all OUR help building THEIR library, they give us this horrible app. Can't just find the song and add it to your library, can't even Listen to it unless you want to Pay for more Options. What a Ripoff! Too bad WE can't have a Wiki-type music app!?!? So Sad.
Appreciative but disappointed
by IttyBittyGirl24 on 2018/06/01 22:56
I am fairly new to the SoundHound world, so far I have really enjoyed learning ALL the different features SoundHound offers. I’m not tech savvy in the least so it’s taking longer than it would most to find all these great features. The experience has been great, but, I have to say on one song I was truly disappointed with the playback I received. One of my all time favorites is Back in Black by AC/DC, the playback was a live in concert version. When I heard that come over my speakers, I just dropped my head, SO DISAPPOINTED! Other than that, I have been extremely happy with Sound Hound, I’ve been recommending y’all to everyone 🙂 Oh yeah, you really don’t have to be tech savvy, AT ALL, to use Sound Hound, that’s just to show you how bad at it I am 😊
Best app ever
by christina724 on 2018/11/03 02:33
Me and my friends have been trying to find this song from a club for a year and half. We have one single video that is 4 seconds and we have been using every app out there to try to find this song. Nothing could detect it, but we discovered this app, and it recognized the song with only a 4 second video. This app saved my well being and saved me from going insane trying to find this song. I have been listening to it on repeat and say a prayer every day thanking the creators of this app. I’m planning on cooking a thanksgiving meal in honor of this app. THANK YOU FOR THIS BLESSING. Thank you, A desperate women
Amazing!
by KerlyK on 2019/04/28 19:36
How in heck the developers did it, programmed this HUGE library of recognition--or whatever it would be called to techies--is so amazing! I mean, everything I've thrown at it, it's recognized. High praise & accolades to what should be an award-winning app! Thank you for the ability to use it without a subscription, for I don't do subscriptions. People, especially younger people, don't see just how much of their lifetime's assets for their later years are being irretrievably given away for immediate gratification on this and that. The subscription economy is great wealth for the subscribed-to company at too high a price for those average joes
Dumb greed
by migshel on 2019/01/25 00:18
I used this app for years and it was great for last minute tunes you want to know about or tunes that is at the end and you want to find out who the artist is but now recently they have video advertising that totally kills the whole functionality of this app. So u heard a song u want to know who it is, u open this app u click on the listen button and instead of it listening to see who the artist is you get a video ad that plays while ur missing the opportunity to know what song and who the artist is. This is where something good becomes something bad. I know they have to make money but this totally kills the whole reason why the app was created. What’s wrong with regular type non-video ads.
Love love love
by Dixiegurltlw on 2018/07/29 00:05
I love this app, it’s everything I’ve ever needed for a music app.. tags every song I hear within seconds- songs on the radio, in the grocery store, in a restaurant, on a tv commercial- you name it, it knows it! Then it gives a complete bio on the band, links to their other music/albums, plus lyrics (usually) and a link to buy the song or just favorite it to your playlist. I brag on it all the time! Don’t use that other app (Shazam🤮) this is the best one out there! I’ve been a subscriber for almost 8 years, and it just keeps getting better and better.❤️ Just do it.
New update ruined it.
by Schmittywebermangensen on 2017/10/10 15:58
I always thought this was better than Shazam. But I’m switching back. Before this app would immediately pop up lyrics for whatever you were listening to (which was probably the highlight of this app in my opinion), but not anymore. They’re now trying too hard to keep up with this thing everyone is doing when they talk to their devices. Which I think is dumb, unnecessary, and a trade down from previous features. Now they’re persistent on having you make an account and attach your Facebook and a bunch of unnecessary crap. I just want to know what song I’m listening to, and I’d like the option to see what lyrics go with it! That too much to ask for?!
SoundHound completes my life
by SaltShaker216 on 2018/01/13 03:35
So many times I have desperately wanted to know the name of a song... these songs touched me in a certain way and made me feel... the prospect of not knowing what the title or artist saddened me and then SoundHound came along and now my life is complete... as a bonus, there is a wonderful feature that saves searches in a history file... after using the app for a while I discovered the search history and decided it would make an awesome iTunes playlist and SoundHound Vol 1 was born... again completeness 🌝
What happened??
by Malikukai on 2018/08/11 16:42
I used to LOVE this app! I used it to search for almost every song I heard because I am a music junkie but ironically I’m not the best at remembering artists’ names or what songs are sung by which artists. Lately however, very very very RARELY is this app able to identify a single song! If it does, its only if its a total chart topper or extremely simple. But pretty much all songs come up with zero matches & absolutely no guesses as to which song it might be. Now I’m not sure when the paid version of this app was released or if that’s even relevant... Unfortunately I’m a little suspicious that this lack of song identifying is a tactic to get customers to spend money on the paid version of this app because this free one no longer works & is anything but helpful or reliable. Disappointed for sure!
Was a 5 Star now just a 3 star
by User100000 on 2018/08/17 23:53
I’ve had this app for years and I absolutely love the features and the UI but.... I have thousands (almost 10,000) of songs stored on my phone but it will only let me access playlists. Now I know I can fool the app by saving my library as a playlist but.... I lose a lot of functionality by doing so. I would 5 Star love the app if it was a legitimate player as well as a music find, identify, and share/purchase app. And I agree with another reviewer. The map part rocks. I do use it to search for new music based on other users who seem to share my very broad tastes in music. I hardly use the app now though as I am too limited in my library access.
From Hero to Zero
by HateBreedsRage on 2018/01/10 00:41
Sound hound was always my app of choice for song identification. I could quickly open it, tap the large button, and close the app all without taking my eyes off the road. Then later I could check my history to see the info about the song. That’s how it worked for what seemed like years. That is until the most recent time I open the app to check my history and I’m greeted with a message saying to register to see my history. All those songs that I hadn’t gotten around to acquiring are now gone in some void, replaced with a screen begging for a registration. I immediately deleted the app. I’m not opposed the registering an account, but to hold my identified songs hostage to fluff up your user base is BS. I went back to Shazam.
Might need update
by EBtheWanderer on 2019/05/10 01:31
Been using SoundCloud for years and I love it. It’s recently been auto playing ads *with sound* , which of course negates any music it’s going to hear in the background. I don’t mind the video ads, I understand the need to make money. Buttttt...kill the auto sound playing, it can’t even hear the songs. Am still giving it five stars since I use it all the time and will assume they’ll fix this issue, am just trying to bring this to their attention.
Really good
by MrsLJ on 2019/04/27 16:20
App is easily five stars if they improved the quality over Bluetooth. I also do not like that the app defaults to not using Bluetooth because this means that any Bluetooth devices you have will be automatically disconnected when you open the app. The app also gets 4stars because it will get a song wrong around 5 to 10% of the time if you’re using it while on the road when there’s ambient driving noise. Unfortunately this is the only time I actually am using the app. To know what the song on the radio is.
Used to be great...
by ScrabbleNut on 2018/06/23 12:11
SoundHound used to be great. It would find any song, you were able to type in some lyrics and find the song you were looking g for. I bought a lot of music from songs i found here. But something has changed with this app. Today i was trying to find (once again) a song i remembered by Earth Wind and Fire. When i typed it in, i didn’t even get the artist. I got a handful of songs, most of which weren’t even sung by them. The album section had 2 of their albums and a bunch of karaoke albums. WTH! where are songs? Where are the dozens of albums they’ve made? What is going on? After using this app for years do i have go looking for a decent music app? I am not happy about this. At all.
Another Has Been...
by Oncfari on 2017/10/08 18:18
This used to be a great app — but no more. Now it takes me thru some random set of BS every time I try to ID a song. Half the time the song is over by the time I finally get back to the song search function. Also, it makes a lot more mistakes (some I think are intentional to sell other music) and often returns zero results, which was previously rare to non-existent. Another example of change for the sake of change killing the golden goose!
useless - hummung or whistling is not working
by Sesamme on 2019/10/21 09:57
I had a song stuck in my head (it still is) but could only remember the melody. SoundHound sounded like a solution, but alas - too good to be true - it couldn’t find anything by whistling or by humming. Then I tried to hum and whistle very famous songs like Yesterday, or Halleluya - it didn’t find them either! Sometimes it was showing some unrelated results in Chinese, but mostly - nothing. Then I tried to sing them with words, and finally - voila, it works! So - it’s almost useless, because if I know the words, I can find a song anyway... Also - in the free version, the ad is often obscuring the button, so I must stop and restart the search. Don’t understand the 5 star ratings...
Beyond Amazing
by Colecast1213 on 2019/07/07 00:13
Had an obscure soundtrack song stuck in my head and it was killing me that I couldn’t remember what movie it was from. Being a soundtrack, classical style song with no lyrics, there’s nothing I could Google to figure it out. I stumbled onto mention of this app, and that it could look up songs based on humming, so I thought, “what the hell.” I’m not even that good at humming, and first try, it nailed it (turned out to be “Arrival To Earth” from Transformers). I’m beyond impressed. So long Shazam!
What Happen
by LQROC on 2018/04/06 16:20
When this app first came out years ago it was awesome. It was able to find it starts songs that Shazam could not do ever sense and for the past year and in the updates in the search engine is not functional. App over Shazam but now it can’t at times pull the most recent songs or artists. The response time of the search engine is Eva slow. There is no doubt in comparing the two apps that Shazam has gotten an edge over this app. You guys know from experience that your app is not up to par with Shazam please make me a believer in next Suzanne wants the better search engine music app and I will go back to reading this a five star
Muhammad’s SoundHound review
by Afroblue of Yale on 2018/09/08 17:40
Sound hound finds 90% of the songs I seek to identify. But in new music genres it sometimes does not recognize, but this is a problem with all the music recognition services. This may not be an issue for most users. I am a musician, professional dancer and instructor, a DJ and an academic - so my needs are extensive. On the whole, as a sound hound user for many years, l recommend it. I do to all my students. The latest feature of tying it to playlist is wonderful. Thank You
Wonderful app
by AppAHollic24 on 2019/03/06 04:04
I absolutely love this incredible application. It has helped me out so much when out and about and I hear a song that I enjoy I just open up the app and click on the orange button and let it listen to the song and quickly it tells me the song title and the artist couldn’t ask for a more wonderful app that does identify songs quickly even if you’re not right next to where the song is coming from.
My go-to ‘what’s that song playing?’ app :D
by AnGee91 on 2018/09/29 06:50
My dad had this app on one of the earliest iPhone generations (before I had my own phone) & I made sure I downloaded this when I got a phone in my hands. I love it. I wish it was able to detect more multicultural songs as well, but it’s also shown me so many that it just overrides that comment, because I knows it’s developing more & more. A very cool thing: it saves the songs you’ve had it listen & you can go to that at anytime✨
Convenient as it is awesome
by Jewlz712 on 2018/03/23 02:47
Ever heard a song on the radio that you loved, but the DJ didn’t say the name or even who it was? Doesn’t that make you mad? Well will this app, all you have to do is pull it up and press the center a button, takes a few seconds and it tells you the song, artist, album, and even gives you links to buy the song. It also has a lyric scroll so you can sing along. There’s really nothing bad to say about it. I love it.
Happy, Happy, Happy!
by Stillbuggin on 2017/12/07 16:05
I guess one would think I was happy with Sound Hound! I've had a blast with this app over the years. Recently, I looked up a title and artist for my 90 year old ex-mother in law. To see the joy in her eyes as she was able to sing along, and and hear her comments made this app so worth it in my book. "I remember that song!" I've periodically had to look up lyrics, but I'm fine with that. I've always enjoyed Sound Hound and GLW, I'll continue in the future!
What used to be great is now uselesss...
by MisterEBox on 2017/12/23 23:05
Awful. Tried to identify ‘Red Right Hand’ by Iggy Pop & Jarvis Cocker. Took about ten tries and then when I try to play it, a little window opens with a picture of Iggy Pop, playing some instrumental elevator loop with a description of the actual song I want to hear but not the song itself. I don’t need a description, I’m quite capable of describing it myself thank you, I want to hear the song. Also- it’s not convenient to ‘talk’ out loud to an app unless you’re driving a car. When trying to improve the app, try leaving the elements that brought people to it in the first place alone. i.e.: Don’t try and fix what isn’t broken. Useless, what happened to this app?
Best sound fetching app ever!!
by Angelito123$ on 2018/03/26 04:03
Ever hear a song on the go or on the radio, and wonder who’s that jamming out!!! Well gurl! Don’t be stupid! Sound hound that song!!! Love the way it also maps out where it was used and what song that was. Honestly, I use it as my personal passport to mark my conquests around the world!!! Love the way it quickly and effortlessly it gives you the option to connect to your iTunes in so many ways! Just download it and check it out!
Can’t identify singing or humming well at all
by Hugusdamoos on 2019/04/26 15:12
I’m a musician so I can sing on key. I tried singing Steve Miller Band’s “Space Cowboy”, Duke Ellington’s “Take The A Train”, Jefferson Airplane’s “Lather”, and Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” The latter was the only tune SoundHound could recognize. The first few times I sang the songs without lyrics, just scatting or humming; the next few times I actually sang the lyrics. No results for any of them except “Moondance.” So the song you are trying to get this app to recognize had better be extremely obvious, in which case you probably already knew the name of the song to begin with! Pretty poor app for song identification using voice. Deleted.

by MYTSHRP~1 on 2019/05/31 03:56
I LOVE this app! I use SoundHound all the time! It’s especially great to have when I hear a song I like but don’t know who it is or name of the song. I pull up SoundHound and in no time I’ve got the name of the song and artist. I love that lyrics are provided (when available). I’ve bragged up SoundHound to all my friends and family and there are a few that knew a good thing when they hear it. Now they are sharing in the wonderful world of SoundHound! Thanks for a great app!!
Oh what app
by Nice2spice on 2019/03/22 21:08
Hi I just want to say how much I enjoy this app. It’s so nice to be able to see the lyrics, I stopped listening to the words along time ago. I’d listen to the rhythms, Sing the chorus part ,but that’s all I would know, never knowing exactly what the was about. Can’t say I haven’t blushed a few times, after I realized what the lyrics were. This app brings me back to some great memories and really helps to keep me up with current music. thank you so much for this app
Better with time
by Aj2100c on 2018/07/29 23:23
This app gets better with time. Now that it has undergone several versions, it runs faster. Another neat and fun feature is being able to open a map and see and hear what others are discovering. Of course, when you’re looking for a song, that gets shared too. And, I don’t mind sharing the tunes I find when I go out there. Being able to she’s that with the world is the beauty of this app.
Opening time.
by drummerboy 777 on 2018/10/23 12:15
I love Sound Hound! But I would give 5 stars of the app or the live tile in the side menu would open or react faster cause I lose a lot of time waiting on it to open. Sometimes I even miss the opportunity to get new music cause I'm having to wait for the app to open! Faster openings or "instant on, or more Mic access!" Abilities!!! Where maybe the second you touch the listening button, it Instantly starts recording but after the app finally opens....... It will realize what it just recorded and act appropriately at THAT point? Just a suggestion......? Maybe?
SoundHound review
by sejrec56 on 2017/12/14 16:17
My review is that SoundHound works incredibly well. When I think of all the years I’d hear a song and the DJ wouldn’t say who the artist was, now most of the time SoundHound answers that for me. But 25 percent of the time it can’t figure out what the song is or artist. How does SoundHound determine who the song or artist is? Anyways SoundHound have become indispensable for me. Being a musician myself I’m glad I can find out who it was I heard and even had a bio on the group, artist or writer! Thanks creators of sound hound!
Who would have thought...
by Greenchristian on 2019/10/28 05:26
This is an amazing app. If you love music, and have ever heard part of any music, and wished you knew what it is, this is definitely one app to get. I’ve used it in a car with radio on, or watching something on tv that sounds familiar, and even been in a grocery store and wondered what was the music playing overhead. Who would have ever thought something like this was possible. Just too amazing.
Kinda Fun
by Arpy123 on 2018/07/11 04:25
I love a lot of different kinds of music and sooooo many times I love a song and know nothing about it. I can’t find it unless it had a distinctive lyric. But this identifies so much faster and up come the lyrics and the album cover so it is fun. I’ve added so many songs because I finally can find my favorites from movies and tv. Even works in a store with a soundtrack playing. I just now realized how much I use it and love it.
Bluetooth issue
by RUNNINGONMT on 2019/09/08 22:36
You’ve made a critical mistake with this version. Whenever I’m in My car listening to a song, then open SoundHound to identify the song do I can see the lyrics, SoundHound immediately connects to Bluetooth and then the song can no longer be heard. Have to then turn off my phone Bluetooth, which disconnects my phone speaker from my car, so i can’t talk on the phone without delinking my phone to me car. Such a Hassle!!! Not worth it, so I use Shazam.
I really like this app
by Loves_Lucy_ on 2018/09/09 19:42
So many times I have come across a song that I like and don’t know the name of. I always click on this app and it never fails to tell me the names of my favorite songs. Within about 20 seconds or so it gives me the name, the artist and the album name. I do wish the lyrics would pop up on all the songs. Most of the songs have lyrics that you can follow with, but there are some that don’t. Overall I love this app and will use it for songs to come.
Love SoundHound
by iKathi08 on 2018/10/09 12:06
I love music all kinds of music old new and in between. With SoundHound I am able to identify and have access to songs I used to have to wonder about for months, years or sometimes never finding out about. Some people don’t like change and the low ratings are not warranted. I can honestly say my experience and love for music has been greatly enhanced by having and using the SoundHound app. Thank you!
It works
by Bojoco on 2018/07/11 20:51
I love this app, simply because it fulfills a frequent need of mine, to identify new music that I like. I’m hearing a song I like, I want to know what it is and how to get it, and all I have to do is activate Sound Hound. Within seconds I have that information, it’s stored within the app for future reference, and I can relax and peruse my results at leisure later on. It also has live lyrics, and being a lyric hound, I find this invaluable. Thanks!
Very handy app...
by StreetMedic380 on 2019/10/08 23:39
...but whatever changes they made in recent version(s) have caused a very annoying phenomenon. It almost never identifies a song on the first try, and instead says that it hears no music. Tap retry, and it instantly identifies the tune. I’m no app programmer, to be sure, but clearly there is some issue that has been introduced with SoundHound’s first attempt at listening to a song that disappears immediately once you “retry.” This has been ongoing for months, and by now has definitely seemed to go past “temporary fluke” status.
Better than Shazam
by Ben Kleschinsky on 2018/11/19 04:45
Apple destroyed the Shazam app because you now need to be connected to WiFi to use it. SoundHound can be used everywhere, and not only that their interface is a lot smoother an faster. You can close the app and continue to listen to music unlike Shazam. You can also tap to stop listening at any moment, unlike Shazam which has stopped innovating. Five stars from me!
Sound
by B1967511 on 2018/06/15 14:48
This app has been one of my favorites for many years, it’s Genius! when I hear music whether it be on the radio or watching television and hear music tracks in a movie or TV show it’s amazing that I can just be able to tap this app identify it by it save it to my devices it’s awesome. The creators of this are brilliant! There are so many amazing talented artists out there that can be discovered with this app.
Not as good as it used to be

I’ve used SoundHound for years and it’s been my best and favorite resource for finding music, even international! But as of late I’ve noticed it’s not only unable to find some songs even with clear sound, it’s not even saving songs it does find in my history and I have not been able to go back and listen to or download them. It hasn’t saved anything - discovery or pending - in almost a month! Disappointed to say the least. Guess I’ll have to try Shazam for a time.
Dance mama tool

When my dancer is taking a class, I like to figure out what the song is and this app will usually get it first before the other apps. (We dance moms have to entertain ourselves! Lol!) I love the lyrics section on this app. Again, when darling dancer is in class sometimes we are just liking the beat. I like to know what the singer is saying. I have had this app for 7 years! I like the link to buy the music too.
