Very helpful when listening to the radio and can’t quite remember who the artist is.
No sample too small!

It doesn’t seem to matter if I come in in the middle of a drum solo of a song, recognition is instantaneous! Easy to save to favorites or download! Thanks for a great app!
Wow is all I can say!

This app is incredible. I put it to the test with some songs that I doubt anyone out there has heard of and it pulled it off. All apps should be this good! Gene, Deerfield Beach, FL

Siri Shortcut needs work
by Ovatsug on 2019/06/16 11:46
Walking through the city, my girlfriend stops, jumps up and down, and says “I love this song! Can you get it?” And of course I do—except this Siri shortcut thing really isn’t working. The app starts—and then it immediately launches into my messaging app without identifying the song and passing it forward as interview. Moreover, the Siri shortcut dosen’t really have helpful messaging documentation. In the warm comfort of the first world, this is quite an annoyance which I’m sure will be fixed. In the meantime I leave a 1-star review. Because you know, I like attention. Good day. Cheers. And keep dancing :) Just wanted t

I'd give it zero if I could
by Nomadxoxo on 2019/06/15 05:13
Tested a few songs that I actually knew, looking up lyrics, keywords, and huming. Only one it got was Toms Diner, which If you know that song, it works be hard not to get that one. Other than that, nothing.
Great Music App

I tried the “humming” didn’t work. Tried “singing” didn’t work. Hell, I even played Soulja boy into the mic and it didn’t work. No matter what I did, it doesn’t work...smh
Great song recognition
by A-ARON-80 on 2019/06/14 03:12
The app picks up music great in my truck. Never fails unless the song is only a couple of days old. Have been using this app for a few years. I haven’t needed another. FYI- I can be in a restaurant or bar and use it when I hear a song come in that I like. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
ABSOLUTE GARBAGE
by hapl0ne on 2019/06/13 23:33
This app has not been able to find one single song for me! The only song it found for me was “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and that was because I became so fed up with this app that I wanted to see if it could find ANYTHING at all. Deleting.
Nice

No longer works
by brielle7 on 2019/06/08 00:25
Used to be great at finding songs. Now it doesn’t come up with any songs suggestions or takes several tries. It also sends constant notifications about songs from years ago. What a shame.

I think SoundHound is one of the best music apps for finding music out there. I have found songs that I never thought I could find anywhere else using SoundHound I have had some records stuck in my head since I was a kid and never heard him again until I got sound town. So hands-down it's one of the very best ones out there

Not as good as it used to be
by Sushi116 on 2019/06/06 16:41
This app now constantly crashes on me! It is also much slower at identifying songs and many times I have to close the app and reopen it in order for it to work. It’s a shame because it used to be really a good app, but not so much now.
This App is Pretty Cool!

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!!

Why I love SoundHound!!!
by KristinaDryer on 2019/05/30 20:55
I absolutely love SoundHound!!! Every time I hear a song on the radio I like & want to search for, I just open up sound hound, hold my phone up to speaker & it tells me the title of the song, then automatically downloads it through my iTunes!!! Easy peasy!!! Also, any time I want to know the lyrics for I song, I use SoundHound! Anytime I want to search for a song, I use SoundHound!!!
Sound not playing through Bluetooth speaker
by jamone423 on 2019/05/30 19:53
I really love this app. I use it so much to identify music and listen to whole songs. I just noticed this as I’ve never tried to play SoundHound through Bluetooth speakers but as I tried to it would not play through the speaker. It also wouldn’t appear on the list of devices to choose from. Any idea why?
What happened?
by Troy.meow.meow on 2019/05/29 00:30
I’ve used this for years but all of a sudden it just “listens” forever and doesn’t ID the song. Even if no other sounds around.
Didn’t work
by cactusloverperson♥️♥️ on 2019/05/28 20:20
I downloaded this app hoping it would help identify the ear worm I had been having and it didn’t work. I also tested the app by humming/singing a popular song and the app never recognized the song! I would give this app zero stars if it were possible.
So Helpful!
by KacyET on 2019/05/28 11:20
The reason why this app is so great: It’s good for the listeners to get instant feedback on a song we here and have to know “Who is That?!” And, it’s great for the Artist! I’ll buy their song instantly if I love it. Thanks SoundHound

Great music finder, love it.
This app deteriorated
by 3hittolumby on 2019/05/23 06:48
I switched to this app from Shazam and it worked so good but over time, the quality just started deteriorating. I started using Siri to get my tags because it actually works really great, which I notice used Shazam, so I downloaded Shazam as my backup when I cannot use Siri and it works just as fast as Siri, Shazam has come a long way since the early days.
Always knows the song
by Callie7918 on 2019/05/22 21:37

Doesn’t work for me
by Me2me3me4qwerwerwq on 2019/05/22 15:07
I have an old song stuck in my head from the 50’ or 60’s. It’s instrumental no lyrics. I only know a few bars. I have tried over and over doesn’t work. I then tried songs I do know... didn’t work. Unless you know lyrics it doesn’t work for me
Terrible - very disappointing
by H2oH2oH20 on 2019/05/22 02:17
I used to love this app and used it to identify songs and artists, but no longer. Now it causes my phone to dial out while it plays ads over and over, and it no longer even identifies songs and artists while it ties up my phone with outgoing calls. SoundHound has become a cringeworthy spambot app. I hope it can be fixed, but there is no way that I can recommend it to anybody in its current state.
The Doctor
by Black Rob on 2019/05/21 23:19
By far, a great application that does what it advertises it can do!
Sadly misguided
by k9gardner on 2019/05/21 22:59
This review will be short and sweet. What used to be one of my favorite apps, used on a daily basis, is now lost in here somewhere. Hear a song... What is that song? Soundhound it, there it is! Or was. The identity of the song, the artist, a preview to confirm it, the lyrics, a way to retain it all in a database, and email that list to myself or someone else. All great stuff. When it works. No one should get hoarse from yelling at their phone because an app doesn’t work. But I have gotten p***ed off at SoundHound so many times lately. I don’t know if you guys have lost your way or what. Or maybe you’re subscribing to the Reid Hoffman school of software development and just figure it’s ok to be embarrassed by your product, perpetually. Half the time it doesn’t work at all. “No music was heard.” That’s funny; your competitor’s product heard it. Or the song is just not found. I’m not using this app to identify a Lady Gaga song. I’m using it to identify more esoteric stuff, electronic, classical, jazz, “international,” that I hear in the multiple places that I hear music. If you’re no longer interested in those types of music, that’s fine, but then this tool which I have relied on for years will no longer work for me. And it’s so d*mned slow!! It takes the full listening cycle and then an equivalent “searching” time to find half the stuff I listen to. There’s not always going to be that time to catch it! Your competitor’s product pulls it up almost instantly. Big difference. Your ace in the hole is me being able to manage and export my list. And preview everything to confirm. There, I can’t always do that. So you still have something. But you’ve got to work out these other issues!
Was Great Until Latest Update!
by MissileChicago on 2019/05/21 21:27
This was a great app until your last update. Now ads get in the way of the application and it takes much longer to search for music, when it actually does find the music on the first try! Typically you have to X out and then try again. Intrusive ads now make this app undesirable.
ADS playing while I’m catching a song?!?!?
by KSlager on 2019/05/20 20:05
I have used & loved this app for years. However, today I was trying to catch a song on a television show and an ADVERTISEMENT starts playing! LOUDLY! I catch many songs in places like restaurants, concerts, office waiting rooms, CHURCH. NOT ANY MORE! I can’t even shut the ad up by turning off my volume! I’m disgusted and am deleting this app.

What Happened
by phoeb1112 on 2019/05/18 04:55
When I downloaded the APP it showed me what to do.The reason I downloaded the APP was to find a song.So I tried to type in a lyric. And every time I typed in a lyric it said “Can’t find a mach”. So I tried with a different lyric the answer was “ Can’t find a mach”. I tried a lot of different songs. And the answer was the same.

Crashes after SoundHounding a song
by review0514 on 2019/05/15 03:46
Have been using the app for a few years, and have generally enjoyed the improvements. One main issue I have is after I SoundHound a song, the app crashes before I can catch any of the song’s info. Thankfully the info is usually saved, but I can always count on having to restart the app after I use it.
Great app!
by Angry&screwed over on 2019/05/15 02:57
It's legit. I use it often to identify music from radios, tv and movies. Highly recommend.
Good and bad

Doesn’t work well either
by SVeeBeth on 2019/05/13 18:56
This app doesn’t work that great either. Can’t they fix Shazam so it works 100% again? Or make an app that actually does its job?!? What a waste.
Slow

Love SoundHound but..
by Lionzgate on 2019/05/13 00:04
I love this app and have used it countless times to identify a tune , but when I click on the app, it loads up too slow to catch a song sometimes. Other than that it’s the best !
Crashes, errors
by JoeNick78 on 2019/05/11 15:43
Love the app, but the latest update is buggy! My app will suddenly close while I’m using it, and several times I get the message ‘No music was heard’ even though I’m in a tight space with loud music. Sometimes I have to repeatedly listen to the same song to get any results!
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.
Spot on
by Lindenroot on 2019/05/10 02:22
This app can pick up music in the noisiest places. Restaurants, outdoor events, etc. I love it when I hear a song I dig and then get it identified. So much great music out there that’s not the top 40 stuff we hear so much I want to barf and sound hound somehow finds the name of the song and artist
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.
Great App!
by Go Tyme on 2019/05/09 03:38
Extremely handy for those “What the hell is the name of that song ?” moments.
On point
by sierralisawilson on 2019/05/08 02:05
When I need to know who is singing the song I’m listening to, SoundHound comes in clutch. Keep doing your thing guys! 👍🏻
Awesome App
by Hopeless Romanticly Twisted on 2019/05/06 12:42
Great for identifying songs you don’t know and it keeps a history of what you have searched for.
The best for song capture

by Blueeyes1020 on 2019/05/01 15:07
For many years this has been my go-to fav app for song lyrics and song discovery, but the latest update took away song follow/lyrics....no longer want or need.
Formerly great, now unusable.
by 5-String Mark on 2019/05/01 00:24
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember, when everyone was using a competitor app I preferred this. However, over the last few weeks ads are appearing and I can no longer use the app. I have found no song information, it is unusable. I gave it /stars in the hope this will be fixed and restored to its former greatness.
Video Ads Killed the Music Lookup App
by Twice II on 2019/04/30 05:33
How in the world is this going to be able to hear a song if it’s playing and ad with sound? I have zero problem with the app selling ad space so we can use the app for free, but not when it effectively disabled the app. It’s also crashing 2/3rds of the time since the update to automatically add songs to Spotify.
Naahhh

Greatest app ever
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
Using live lyrics until the screen locks
by wazenube on 2019/04/28 19:14
Why doesn’t the app stay lit when it’s in the foreground? Live lyrics are pretty useless if you have to go unlock the phone and then restart the song up to get the pointer in the right place. How do I get technical support? All I get is a bunch of dead and websites and the final option is to send an email or Twitter. Is that really how you do it?
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.
Video Ads?
by orangecookie on 2019/04/27 13:05
Really? Was an OK app until the loud ads started. Bye!
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.
Love it!

Whenever I hear a song on the TV or radio that I don’t know, all I have to do is turn on the app.

This is like a little challenge for myself. I guess the name of the song and who it is and Wella!/@>¥. Personal trivia. Thanks to your app. ...used to do this on the radio only The answer was random depending on the DJ.

I can ALWAYS count on SoundHound to advise me of the artist I’m listened to as well as the lyrics! As an old rocker, I appreciate the help!
❤️❤️❤️❤️ 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.

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!
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
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
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!
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.
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 2019/01/28 03:50
...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
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.
What about different location for the button?
by Tanmyman on 2018/01/30 21:30
Hey guys I was using it today and wondered how it would be to have the bigger button even closer to the bottom so like I was today when you’re in a rush to find the song or tag it you can click it right when it opens right next to your thumb instead of having to reach to the top just an idea thanks for the app!
Classic N8
by TCN8 on 2018/04/07 23:39
I’ll give the hound some prompts, it’s pretty reliable, I’ve got some three thousand searches between 5 or more phones and maybe 10 songs that were wrong they turned out to be good finds. Super new stuff occasionally takes awhile to get figured out but it doesn’t take that long. Overall not bad. It’s needs work on live music presentations on both radio and at the show.
Works with Apple Watch!
by Gurpfrut on 2018/02/18 04:43
This is easily the best music-recognizing app out there, and now that it's been integrated with Apple Watch it's perfect! Fast to start and easy to use, and has a dedicated complication. This so much easier, safer and more discrete than holding my phone to a speaker. It took longer for this feature to be released than I would've liked, but it's solid and I'm happy about that.
Major flaw with ads
by Stephsteph11 on 2019/02/27 21:14
I’ve used this app for years and have always loved it. However, I was trying to identify a song today and when you press the start button it also triggered a video ad to start playing... which frowns out whatever your trying to ID. No button to mute the volume on the ad. Tried again a 2nd time, different video ad started playing again. Thankfully this was a situation where I could pause the song source (it was a movie) so I didn’t miss it... but as many of us know, this isn’t always the case and you may only get a few seconds to identify a song! Very annoyed.

It doesn’t seem to matter if I come in in the middle of a drum solo of a song, recognition is instantaneous! Easy to save to favorites or download! Thanks for a great app!
Wow is all I can say!

This app is incredible. I put it to the test with some songs that I doubt anyone out there has heard of and it pulled it off. All apps should be this good! Gene, Deerfield Beach, FL

Siri Shortcut needs work
by Ovatsug on 2019/06/16 11:46
Walking through the city, my girlfriend stops, jumps up and down, and says “I love this song! Can you get it?” And of course I do—except this Siri shortcut thing really isn’t working. The app starts—and then it immediately launches into my messaging app without identifying the song and passing it forward as interview. Moreover, the Siri shortcut dosen’t really have helpful messaging documentation. In the warm comfort of the first world, this is quite an annoyance which I’m sure will be fixed. In the meantime I leave a 1-star review. Because you know, I like attention. Good day. Cheers. And keep dancing :) Just wanted t

Tested a few songs that I actually knew, looking up lyrics, keywords, and huming. Only one it got was Toms Diner, which If you know that song, it works be hard not to get that one. Other than that, nothing.

I tried the “humming” didn’t work. Tried “singing” didn’t work. Hell, I even played Soulja boy into the mic and it didn’t work. No matter what I did, it doesn’t work...smh
Great song recognition
by A-ARON-80 on 2019/06/14 03:12
The app picks up music great in my truck. Never fails unless the song is only a couple of days old. Have been using this app for a few years. I haven’t needed another. FYI- I can be in a restaurant or bar and use it when I hear a song come in that I like. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
ABSOLUTE GARBAGE
by hapl0ne on 2019/06/13 23:33
This app has not been able to find one single song for me! The only song it found for me was “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and that was because I became so fed up with this app that I wanted to see if it could find ANYTHING at all. Deleting.

Used to be great at finding songs. Now it doesn’t come up with any songs suggestions or takes several tries. It also sends constant notifications about songs from years ago. What a shame.

I think SoundHound is one of the best music apps for finding music out there. I have found songs that I never thought I could find anywhere else using SoundHound I have had some records stuck in my head since I was a kid and never heard him again until I got sound town. So hands-down it's one of the very best ones out there

Not as good as it used to be
by Sushi116 on 2019/06/06 16:41
This app now constantly crashes on me! It is also much slower at identifying songs and many times I have to close the app and reopen it in order for it to work. It’s a shame because it used to be really a good app, but not so much now.
This App is Pretty Cool!

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!!

Why I love SoundHound!!!
by KristinaDryer on 2019/05/30 20:55
I absolutely love SoundHound!!! Every time I hear a song on the radio I like & want to search for, I just open up sound hound, hold my phone up to speaker & it tells me the title of the song, then automatically downloads it through my iTunes!!! Easy peasy!!! Also, any time I want to know the lyrics for I song, I use SoundHound! Anytime I want to search for a song, I use SoundHound!!!
Sound not playing through Bluetooth speaker
by jamone423 on 2019/05/30 19:53
I really love this app. I use it so much to identify music and listen to whole songs. I just noticed this as I’ve never tried to play SoundHound through Bluetooth speakers but as I tried to it would not play through the speaker. It also wouldn’t appear on the list of devices to choose from. Any idea why?
What happened?
by Troy.meow.meow on 2019/05/29 00:30
I’ve used this for years but all of a sudden it just “listens” forever and doesn’t ID the song. Even if no other sounds around.
Didn’t work
by cactusloverperson♥️♥️ on 2019/05/28 20:20
I downloaded this app hoping it would help identify the ear worm I had been having and it didn’t work. I also tested the app by humming/singing a popular song and the app never recognized the song! I would give this app zero stars if it were possible.
So Helpful!
by KacyET on 2019/05/28 11:20
The reason why this app is so great: It’s good for the listeners to get instant feedback on a song we here and have to know “Who is That?!” And, it’s great for the Artist! I’ll buy their song instantly if I love it. Thanks SoundHound

Great music finder, love it.
This app deteriorated
by 3hittolumby on 2019/05/23 06:48
I switched to this app from Shazam and it worked so good but over time, the quality just started deteriorating. I started using Siri to get my tags because it actually works really great, which I notice used Shazam, so I downloaded Shazam as my backup when I cannot use Siri and it works just as fast as Siri, Shazam has come a long way since the early days.
Always knows the song
by Callie7918 on 2019/05/22 21:37

Doesn’t work for me
by Me2me3me4qwerwerwq on 2019/05/22 15:07
I have an old song stuck in my head from the 50’ or 60’s. It’s instrumental no lyrics. I only know a few bars. I have tried over and over doesn’t work. I then tried songs I do know... didn’t work. Unless you know lyrics it doesn’t work for me
Terrible - very disappointing
by H2oH2oH20 on 2019/05/22 02:17
I used to love this app and used it to identify songs and artists, but no longer. Now it causes my phone to dial out while it plays ads over and over, and it no longer even identifies songs and artists while it ties up my phone with outgoing calls. SoundHound has become a cringeworthy spambot app. I hope it can be fixed, but there is no way that I can recommend it to anybody in its current state.
The Doctor
by Black Rob on 2019/05/21 23:19
By far, a great application that does what it advertises it can do!
Sadly misguided
by k9gardner on 2019/05/21 22:59
This review will be short and sweet. What used to be one of my favorite apps, used on a daily basis, is now lost in here somewhere. Hear a song... What is that song? Soundhound it, there it is! Or was. The identity of the song, the artist, a preview to confirm it, the lyrics, a way to retain it all in a database, and email that list to myself or someone else. All great stuff. When it works. No one should get hoarse from yelling at their phone because an app doesn’t work. But I have gotten p***ed off at SoundHound so many times lately. I don’t know if you guys have lost your way or what. Or maybe you’re subscribing to the Reid Hoffman school of software development and just figure it’s ok to be embarrassed by your product, perpetually. Half the time it doesn’t work at all. “No music was heard.” That’s funny; your competitor’s product heard it. Or the song is just not found. I’m not using this app to identify a Lady Gaga song. I’m using it to identify more esoteric stuff, electronic, classical, jazz, “international,” that I hear in the multiple places that I hear music. If you’re no longer interested in those types of music, that’s fine, but then this tool which I have relied on for years will no longer work for me. And it’s so d*mned slow!! It takes the full listening cycle and then an equivalent “searching” time to find half the stuff I listen to. There’s not always going to be that time to catch it! Your competitor’s product pulls it up almost instantly. Big difference. Your ace in the hole is me being able to manage and export my list. And preview everything to confirm. There, I can’t always do that. So you still have something. But you’ve got to work out these other issues!
Was Great Until Latest Update!
by MissileChicago on 2019/05/21 21:27
This was a great app until your last update. Now ads get in the way of the application and it takes much longer to search for music, when it actually does find the music on the first try! Typically you have to X out and then try again. Intrusive ads now make this app undesirable.
ADS playing while I’m catching a song?!?!?
by KSlager on 2019/05/20 20:05
I have used & loved this app for years. However, today I was trying to catch a song on a television show and an ADVERTISEMENT starts playing! LOUDLY! I catch many songs in places like restaurants, concerts, office waiting rooms, CHURCH. NOT ANY MORE! I can’t even shut the ad up by turning off my volume! I’m disgusted and am deleting this app.

What Happened
by phoeb1112 on 2019/05/18 04:55
When I downloaded the APP it showed me what to do.The reason I downloaded the APP was to find a song.So I tried to type in a lyric. And every time I typed in a lyric it said “Can’t find a mach”. So I tried with a different lyric the answer was “ Can’t find a mach”. I tried a lot of different songs. And the answer was the same.

Crashes after SoundHounding a song
by review0514 on 2019/05/15 03:46
Have been using the app for a few years, and have generally enjoyed the improvements. One main issue I have is after I SoundHound a song, the app crashes before I can catch any of the song’s info. Thankfully the info is usually saved, but I can always count on having to restart the app after I use it.
Great app!
by Angry&screwed over on 2019/05/15 02:57
It's legit. I use it often to identify music from radios, tv and movies. Highly recommend.
Good and bad

Doesn’t work well either
by SVeeBeth on 2019/05/13 18:56
This app doesn’t work that great either. Can’t they fix Shazam so it works 100% again? Or make an app that actually does its job?!? What a waste.
Slow
by U.S Navy Nathan James on 2019/05/13 00:59

Love SoundHound but..
by Lionzgate on 2019/05/13 00:04
I love this app and have used it countless times to identify a tune , but when I click on the app, it loads up too slow to catch a song sometimes. Other than that it’s the best !
Crashes, errors
by JoeNick78 on 2019/05/11 15:43
Love the app, but the latest update is buggy! My app will suddenly close while I’m using it, and several times I get the message ‘No music was heard’ even though I’m in a tight space with loud music. Sometimes I have to repeatedly listen to the same song to get any results!
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.
Spot on
by Lindenroot on 2019/05/10 02:22
This app can pick up music in the noisiest places. Restaurants, outdoor events, etc. I love it when I hear a song I dig and then get it identified. So much great music out there that’s not the top 40 stuff we hear so much I want to barf and sound hound somehow finds the name of the song and artist
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.
Great App!
by Go Tyme on 2019/05/09 03:38
Extremely handy for those “What the hell is the name of that song ?” moments.
On point
by sierralisawilson on 2019/05/08 02:05
When I need to know who is singing the song I’m listening to, SoundHound comes in clutch. Keep doing your thing guys! 👍🏻
Awesome App
by Hopeless Romanticly Twisted on 2019/05/06 12:42
Great for identifying songs you don’t know and it keeps a history of what you have searched for.

Frustrated
by Blueeyes1020 on 2019/05/01 15:07
For many years this has been my go-to fav app for song lyrics and song discovery, but the latest update took away song follow/lyrics....no longer want or need.
Formerly great, now unusable.
by 5-String Mark on 2019/05/01 00:24
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember, when everyone was using a competitor app I preferred this. However, over the last few weeks ads are appearing and I can no longer use the app. I have found no song information, it is unusable. I gave it /stars in the hope this will be fixed and restored to its former greatness.
Video Ads Killed the Music Lookup App
by Twice II on 2019/04/30 05:33
How in the world is this going to be able to hear a song if it’s playing and ad with sound? I have zero problem with the app selling ad space so we can use the app for free, but not when it effectively disabled the app. It’s also crashing 2/3rds of the time since the update to automatically add songs to Spotify.
Naahhh

Great app if you are into the music.
Awesome App
by Rozco on 2019/04/28 20:13
Greatest app ever
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
Using live lyrics until the screen locks
by wazenube on 2019/04/28 19:14
Why doesn’t the app stay lit when it’s in the foreground? Live lyrics are pretty useless if you have to go unlock the phone and then restart the song up to get the pointer in the right place. How do I get technical support? All I get is a bunch of dead and websites and the final option is to send an email or Twitter. Is that really how you do it?
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.
Video Ads?
by orangecookie on 2019/04/27 13:05
Really? Was an OK app until the loud ads started. Bye!
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.
Love it!
by Debbster233 on 2019/04/26 11:48
Whenever I hear a song on the TV or radio that I don’t know, all I have to do is turn on the app.

This is like a little challenge for myself. I guess the name of the song and who it is and Wella!/@>¥. Personal trivia. Thanks to your app. ...used to do this on the radio only The answer was random depending on the DJ.
My rock “expert”!
by myers1701 on 2019/04/19 16:00
I can ALWAYS count on SoundHound to advise me of the artist I’m listened to as well as the lyrics! As an old rocker, I appreciate the help!
❤️❤️❤️❤️ 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

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

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!
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
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
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.

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!
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.
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 2019/01/28 03:50
...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.
What about different location for the button?
by Tanmyman on 2018/01/30 21:30
Hey guys I was using it today and wondered how it would be to have the bigger button even closer to the bottom so like I was today when you’re in a rush to find the song or tag it you can click it right when it opens right next to your thumb instead of having to reach to the top just an idea thanks for the app!
Classic N8
by TCN8 on 2018/04/07 23:39
I’ll give the hound some prompts, it’s pretty reliable, I’ve got some three thousand searches between 5 or more phones and maybe 10 songs that were wrong they turned out to be good finds. Super new stuff occasionally takes awhile to get figured out but it doesn’t take that long. Overall not bad. It’s needs work on live music presentations on both radio and at the show.
Works with Apple Watch!
by Gurpfrut on 2018/02/18 04:43
This is easily the best music-recognizing app out there, and now that it's been integrated with Apple Watch it's perfect! Fast to start and easy to use, and has a dedicated complication. This so much easier, safer and more discrete than holding my phone to a speaker. It took longer for this feature to be released than I would've liked, but it's solid and I'm happy about that.
Major flaw with ads
by Stephsteph11 on 2019/02/27 21:14
I’ve used this app for years and have always loved it. However, I was trying to identify a song today and when you press the start button it also triggered a video ad to start playing... which frowns out whatever your trying to ID. No button to mute the volume on the ad. Tried again a 2nd time, different video ad started playing again. Thankfully this was a situation where I could pause the song source (it was a movie) so I didn’t miss it... but as many of us know, this isn’t always the case and you may only get a few seconds to identify a song! Very annoyed.
