DOESNT WORK
by Mattisthered on 2020/07/06 13:02
You say you can hum songs and your dumb app knows them. This is a LIE I have hummed super popular songs I know and it still doesn’t work. Garbage. Don’t waste your time
Playback ..
by brolkevin on 2020/07/06 04:18
So I have the setting to add music to Apple Music ... I go to SoundHound and play my playlist and it doesn’t play ... I press play and it doesn’t play .. tried reinstalling, closing opening the app, did the same for Apple Music and nothing .. may just be a but like me playing back music and switching apps cuts back on quality and skips. Great app and it’s a 5 other than that .. free app so don’t mind my constructive comment
App crashing
by ryahbsv on 2020/07/03 03:00
Lately it’s been lagging hasn’t been finding the song when pressing to search it. Having issues reading music or understanding, basically the app is now bad used to be my favorite app always finding the song right away but hasn’t been meeting it’s potential
Good but
by LeonMmm900 on 2020/06/29 14:47
Too many notifications from an app I don’t need it from
Did not work
by best/good game on 2020/06/28 04:53
I downloaded this app to listen to my favorite songs when I tried to listen to the it said they were “unavailable” I do not recommend this app to anyone.
SoundHound is done
by Rigadoohaus on 2020/06/27 19:12
I used SoundHound since the beginning. But is just isn’t special anymore. It cannot recognize songs at all. It takes 2-3 tries to find a song or it won’t find them at all. If you use Siri which is just Shazam works every time. I’m switching and retiring years of using Shazam. Also they have a bug if you log in via Facebook and have 2-auth on. Also never works with Apple Watch. Bye bye.
Cant find most songs im looking for -_-
by CassyWiedem on 2020/06/27 12:10
This app cant find half the stuff i listen to. Please fix this.
Used to be good
by Mystigo on 2020/06/26 04:37
Many years ago I shook the hand of one of the developers at a conference. This app was the best thing I had on my phone. You could launch it in seconds and near instantly start identifying music. It is 10 years later and I just rage deleted it. It takes 20+ seconds to launch, then the ads come up, then the listen button comes up. When you press it is says a bunch of stupid stuff, and eventually it says it couldn’t hear anything. Siri named the tune within 5 seconds of me asking it to. That’s all I wanted. This app has lost its way. In 10 years it has gotten worse with every release. It is time to part ways with it.
This app just knows every song
by _alextnt on 2020/06/26 02:17
Just this app is just sooooooo good just because it knows every song and it’s freeeeee
Almost 5 Stars
by Britt Nik on 2020/06/25 16:38
I love this App! Rarely has it let me down when discovering new music. The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is the fact that I can’t replay my liked songs though a Bluetooth speaker. Unless I’m missing something, I can only play trough my phone.
It doesn’t work right.
by abcodntucmekd on 2020/06/23 01:20
This app doesn’t work for me. I was playing guitar and played this riff I randomly remembered. So I downloaded this app and played it to it, but it couldn’t come up with anything. After consulting a family member, it turned out to be a bit from “Nothing Else Matters”. To further test the app I played several other songs into it, hummed songs to it, and even sang the lyrics to several classic songs to this app. It failed every single time. It only works when I play the original recording by the artist. Now, I realize other people have had wonderful experiences with this app, so it could be a hardware issue on my end, or maybe even a pebkac error. I don’t know. But my experience with it was negative.
A God Send.
by Get Good. on 2020/06/22 04:19
This app is amazing, it’s helped me find 2 songs I was never able to. See one of the ones I was looking for I knew had ‘Free’ in it but whenever I would search for it online none of the results were ever what I was looking for, or remembered what the song sounded like. However! I was able to find the song using Soundhound by searching the lyrics and BAM it was there! Thanks y’all, it’s been bugging me a long time not being able to find it but that day is over. BTW, the song is “Free” by Mandisa, check it out, it slaps.
Never finds songs
by ronnie2k03 on 2020/06/21 19:57
I keep typing in the lyrics in the search bars like it said and it always pops up with popular songs that don’t even have the same lyrics. I tried humming and even singing the lyrics into the microphone like it said and every time it just says that there was no results. I tried singing very popular songs that have clear lyrics and it still doesn’t even detect it.
Really? SMH
by ~Monicalll on 2020/06/20 02:15
Was looking for a particular Gospel Song, sound hound could find it, which is ok. However the message said “Oh Sh_ _” we couldn’t find it. This type of language can be offensive so I have deleted the app.
Garbage!
by MGKHAHAHA on 2020/06/18 19:53
This app is useless. Ive tried to find multiple songs with no results. Then tried to get it to find many songs I already know. This app can’t figure it out ever, sorry. No good
Pls add this
by g bbbgvb on 2020/06/16 14:34
This app is awesome but it needs to be able to recognize music without words please do this
It has never worked
by Segmented on 2020/06/13 22:00
I’ve never had this app do what it’s supposed to
You are the best!
by MinaV on 2020/06/07 03:58
What Shazam couldn’t find, you have. A five second clip, boom, you found it and it was the right song on the first try. This app is amazeballs. I’d forgotten about this app, but when I couldn’t find a song played on a reality tv show I saw tonight, I remembered this app. I’m so glad I did because not only was this obscure song, Young and Free by Shari Short, was so instantly found by SoundHound, you found it on YouTube mere seconds later. Good puppy!!! I think I’m in love! 🥰 Thank you!!!
Crashes
by MelloKitty95 on 2020/06/06 08:09
Use to LOVE this app til it started constantly crashing within 1-4 minutes of the app being open or at the longest play maybe two or three songs most then crash and it’s really getting on my nerves. Is there a new app like this that I don’t know about? Or fix it. That’d be legit.
Not very good
by Mjkrrs on 2020/06/05 17:35
I have had this app for several years, but for the past year or more Sound Hound has not worked well. Their updates have definitely not been improvements. In recent months the app has been pretty much worthless. It seems to have no idea what any song is. If you have an iPhone, ask Siri and get an answer before the song is gone.
If it ain’t broke, why fix it!
by Jellynunez on 2020/06/04 11:36
I would have rated this app higher. The reason I haven’t is because the previous versions in the past allowed lyrics on the iPhone to be in landscape mode and since then there has been way to many pop up ads. Please bring back landscape view for lyrics.
Ok
by babykitten1000 on 2020/06/04 03:30
I usually love this app but at random times I can’t search anything which makes it very unhelpful. Everytime I search something it says they can’t find it.
Horrible ap, works 40% of time and also supports racists
by Grownup on 2020/06/03 03:37
App sucked anyhow but this company supports and advertises violent organizations bringing us riots. Deleted it today.
paid to have ads removed
by ricky3963 on 2020/06/02 14:26
i paid to have ads removed but since last update i am now getting ads
THIS APP IS A MIRACLE
by Tye Downs on 2020/06/02 13:08
I literally spent days trying to find a song stuck in my head. I even tried Shazam and that couldn’t locate the song by humming. I did a quick google search on other ways to find songs and I saw a mention of Sound Hound. They said that you could hum the song and it would find it for you. I tried it and sure enough it worked within SECONDS! I had spent so long searching for the song on YouTube and trying to type in the lyrics I knew. I frickin love this app, thank you guys!
App Is a Scam
by Ty23468324888 on 2020/05/31 17:43
It doesn’t work, just says can’t find the song on whatever I sing. I recommend to nobody, never download!
Please add support for Google Play Music
by Nate Lee-Wolf on 2020/05/31 01:06
I can’t find a single app that will link to Google Play Music/YouTube Music on iPhone. Please consider adding this.

Doesn’t work
by Aninwa buachie on 2020/05/28 00:07
When i try it the first time in a song, it says it doesn’t hear anything, second time i try it it comes. It’s really annoying. I don’t know why everyone’s saying it’s good. And i definitely play it loud enough.
Cannot Recognize Many Songs
by awsnyde on 2020/05/27 13:13
Skip it. I can’t even tell you the number of songs—just in the last few days—that SoundHound did not recognize that Shazam identified in a second. Granted, I listen primarily to indie rock, so maybe this will work for you if you are solely trying to identify top 20 songs.
Sing feature
by yeahmhm on 2020/05/27 03:24
The singing/humming feature does not work so well.
Bad UI/Broken UI
by alphawolf321 on 2020/05/27 03:04
Whenever I get results from humming a song, there’s no way to exit the screen showing the results. There’s no exit button or back button. It’s really strange.

Like amazing
Ah, 💩
by dpradis on 2020/05/24 06:32
I couldn’t find a 5 ⭐️ review because this app doesn’t even recognize a lot of famous Beatles songs, much less that song you’ve been humming that you heard at that one party.
PERFECT!!!
by æëÿûïœãß on 2020/05/24 01:40
Five seconds of the song and boom
Doesn’t work
by LeeLee122793 on 2020/05/22 14:18
I hummed a tune I was looking for, didn’t work. So then I tried more popular songs and still couldn’t find them.
It used to be good
by L M O on 2020/05/21 15:04
Every time this app gets an update, it gets worse and worse. When I try to figure out what song is playing on the radio, it say try humming or singing even tho the song is playing, I try to turn volume up even louder. 99% it's says oops can't find it or it didn't hear anything. And when it does hear something it shows some random song.
I CANT BELIEVE
by anon-nn-mn_Mnmnnnn nnn on 2020/05/20 23:21
there was a song I was looking for for 10 + years and I just hummed and found it! I’m so delighted!!!
Good app, not certain about the hate.
by wontpayforpremium on 2020/05/20 07:59
Disclaimer: This review is written within minutes of downloading the app. It will not include problems with using the app in the long term. So I downloaded this app in the hopes of finding a song that has been driving me insane for 6 months because I couldn’t think of its name. I read a lot of hate comments in recent months absolutely flaming this app, and I cannot tell if it’s legitimate, because they all cite the same problem. So I was skeptical going into using the app. I hummed the tune twice and didn’t get any results right away, which is when I realized that you have to go into the history tab of the app in order to actually find the results, because lo and behold, there’s the song that had been stuck in my head for months. So again, I’m not certain about this app, or if this was a “one off never gonna happen again” scenario, but the app did what I wanted it to do, and so it gets four stars for finding a song I couldn’t remember, but loses one for the awful formatting.
What the heck happened to this app?
by Neo_9d9 on 2020/05/19 22:06
Just stopped helping find music lately!!! 🤷🏽‍♂️ FIX IT! And spare us the notion of “Check your internet/WiFi connection! Blah blah blah” Just fix this please!
Humming or whistling don’t work.
by Chewyourfingers on 2020/05/16 04:08
This is the go to app I would use to find a song I would forget here and there but now it just doesn’t work. I whistled a very simple, well known song and it couldn’t find it at all. I did this after I couldn’t find a song that I do not have any info of. I thought, “I’ll try a super simple well known wing to make sure this app is working correctly” and nothing. Well, nothing is perfect and that is especially true for “technology”.
Latest update ruins functionality
by DudeAbides59 on 2020/05/16 00:57
Why do companies have to keep bloating their apps to the point they’re unusable. Used to be a great app that identified unknown music quickly. Now it is just like the app I left for it, Shazam. So disappointing.
The best I can find
by mariahcareydag on 2020/05/15 18:27
Y’all are hating on this app!! Like this is the best app with song recognition I can find. I tried Shazam, Alexa, Siri and this was the only app that could find this one song that I had a 5 second excerpt from. Very nice sound hound 👍🏻
Hate ads
by Khamis H on 2020/05/15 00:27
Ads are terrible!
Has become irrelevant
by 2cowboy1 on 2020/05/13 19:23
I’ve used this app for years and always enjoyed it. But now .... the things it used to do well are no longer. Most of the time when SoundHound it can’t find the song; Shazam finds it instantly. Jack of all trades and Master of none syndrome.
Oh wow
by biltinisbal on 2020/05/12 13:28
I had a song stuck in my head but couldn't remember any of the words, so I looked for an app that would help me, and found Soundhound and it found it! It was a Japanese song too! No wonder I couldn't remember the words 😂 very impressed
Bad bt music quality linked to Spotify
by ESpÄtŠįo on 2020/05/12 09:32
I don’t know why. The idea of having lyrics with your music is sooo good. I linked my account to Spotify Premium (Very High Quality), but i pair with my AirPods and sounds trash. Worse than a radio stream
Dissapointed
by ABST6 on 2020/05/11 21:36
So, I’m not one to write reviews.. except I really wanted to write this one. The app doesn’t work. The humming feature doesn’t give you songs. It always says no results. I was trying to see if the song I was writing was original and I was pretty glad when it said no results matched for the tune. BUT. Then I was curious to see if I sang or played a famous song it would give results. I did “treat you better” by Shawn mendes and even the abcs and twinkle twinkle. And dude. Come on. If this app can’t detect the abcs I’m gonna be disappointed no duh. I think the lyric search works. I’m not sure. But you can google that too. Good day.
Humming feature doesn’t work
by niklas1000010101010 on 2020/05/11 15:20
I’ve tried humming and whistling for many songs, even extremely common ones to test it. However, it can never find them.
Slow and bug on the bug
by Alshnykin on 2020/05/09 17:14
Everything works slow, freezing, share wrong songs, ad, slow, slow, slow
Bluetooth problem
by Isaac Fierro Villalpando on 2020/05/07 06:48
The app works very well, but the issue I have is that when I try to listen to a song, the song play on my phone instead of my earbuds. I don’t know if this is supposed to do that or it’s a glitch. I just want to know.
❤️!!
by pakyh on 2020/05/03 23:45
This app is so great their is soo many musics that I wanna know about and it’s just so great and accurate and I love it and theirs lyrics and thsi is sooooooo great I love it!!!!!!!!
Turned To Crap
by GreysEnforcer on 2020/05/02 21:01
This app started out great. No it never finds any song. Seems like the creators just gave up on it. So it turned to crap. Well done on ruining what could’ve stayed an awesome app.👏🏻
Trash
by ItalianStallion18 on 2020/05/02 14:36
It says you can hum into the phone and it will find the song... my a**! You could have an artist hum their OWN song into the phone and it wouldn’t find sh*t. Never ever works right.
No
by TheNumberBlue._ on 2020/05/01 21:34
Didn’t find any songs. I was testing it to see if it would work and it didn’t. Poop.
No landscape, No split view?
by BRNGBRNG on 2020/05/01 14:37
This is bad on iPad
Your app doesn’t work at all anymore
by oo2242 LBW on 2020/04/30 19:01
Your sound hound app is NOT WORKING AT ALL!!! I use it all the time and now it suddenly won’t e en do anything at all. You press the SoundHound app it goes to the orange screen and after about2-3 seconds it completely shuts off. Very frustrating an y’all please do an update for bugs
No lyrica
by GuitarFool72 on 2020/04/29 14:53
Stupid thing has quit finding lyrics. For example Africa by Toto which of course it should be able to find. For me this pretty much makes the app worthless. Tech support said try uninstalling and reinstalling and the lyrica function worked for like two days.
Stopped working
by Staytruetoyourvalues on 2020/04/29 05:06
Stopped working, but it was great before the update.
So weak
by alpay187 on 2020/04/28 19:23
It cant find most of the musics
Garbagé
by Verxendii on 2020/04/28 03:52
What’s the use of having a humming or singing feature if it doesn’t work. I understand the intentions of the app and that’s to differentiate between Shazam but how about removing the feature and actually make it work. I love the concept, But keep it just a concept. Clock out for me baby.
Rarely works - prefer Shazam
by Subiedoo66 on 2020/04/27 12:58
Unused to use this app all the time. Recently it has stopped working for the most part. It fails to recognize the most basic songs. I’ve started using Shazam, especially the auto-Shazam option. I tired of getting no result, only to have Shazam identify what’s playing. Now I mostly only try SoundHound if Shazam doesn’t recognize what’s playing.

Never works!
by WillZaffiro on 2020/04/25 22:44
Dawg this app never works, I’ve have so many song stuck in my head before and this app never helps like ever!
No Landscape Mode for iPad
by 0verc4ffeinated on 2020/04/24 22:37
Downloaded this app at the recommendation of Spotify and was super excited for the Spotify integration... but found out it had no landscape mode for the iPad. I use my iPad for music while I work and keep it exclusively in landscape mode during that time... which renders this app completely useless for looking up lyrics while I listen to my music. I imagine it would be difficult to prop your iPad up in portrait mode for most functional uses of this app... I deleted the app and started using Shazam instead. Sigh.
Totally stopped working.
by Kjr12521 on 2020/04/21 07:37
This was for years my go-to app for discovering music until it suddenly stopped working. First, it couldn’t hear the music coming from my tv after it always heard that volume level in the past. Then when my device was moved closer and it could hear the music, it stopped its ability to recognize what was playing. I had no choice but switch to a competitor. it not only heard the music where Shazam couldn’t, but heard the music and recognized it so much faster. I ditched Shazam and went to the competitor and solved all of my problems. Shazam is broken. It’s developers do not care.
Used to love - not anymore
by 12mtn on 2020/04/21 00:13
I’ve used this app for many years. Loved it. Used it a lot. But the last year or so, it’s been horrible! Now, every single search comes back with nothing. Nothing. And these were of the original singer, on the radio, popular songs, so should have been easy. Don’t know what happened but something did... Sad.
This app is garbage
by Tayl0rtheGREAT on 2020/04/20 21:03
I havent had one song recognized with this app
Ehh😐

App no longer works
by Bks4JB on 2020/04/18 22:01
Says no match on Every. Single. Song. Used to work GREAT. So disappointed. I’m blaring Bruce Springsteen and it says no match. Awful.
Starting to go downhill
by hidlod83 on 2020/04/18 21:05
I work in music. I use this app constantly. The ‘improvements’ are fun and all, but the main purpose of this app is to identify music, right? Many moons ago, that part worked. As of a few updates ago, when I do as I’ve always done with the app, all of a sudden, songs that should be recognizable in seconds take two tries. Songs that DO get recognized don’t show up on the screen, and the app tries to identify all over again, and if I don’t manually check my history after every individual go, I end up with two copies of everything, or nothing at all. This is infuriating. Please work on the original algorithm because what’s happening isn’t cool, and if it continues, you’ll find that more people, including me, uninstall.
Never seems to find any songs for me-
by Chickk let's on 2020/04/18 19:31
Unless you need an app that tells you the name of the sings everybody already knows- this app isn’t for you- It cannot locate most songs - doesn’t even seem to try- This used to be a 5star app- but now- Its useless-
SH AWESOME

1000 times better
by Tout_pret on 2020/04/10 19:47
SoundHound 1000 times better than that other app. This one figures out every song. The other one, not so much

by always pitch perfect on 2020/04/01 19:01
had half a melody and 1 word to a song. couldn’t find the song anywhere so I got this app. for some reason it couldn’t figure it out though. probably a great app overall but it could definitely use some work just sayin
Slow
by wysiwyg77 on 2020/03/30 01:30
A lot of times this app does not recognize the song and it takes several attempts to come up with it.
Super!
by ljdancesballroom on 2020/03/28 22:00
I love using SoundHound. Most of the time it locates the tune. I would like for it to find more in the ballroom style music and beach music like Shag from Myrtle Beach, SC. Thanks.
Don't get it

Where’s the Rest of it???

Been using SoundHound for the past three phones of mine 😂 and it’s always been really great. The response has always been quick and the live lyrics make for some terrible sing-alongs to be had...that all said, it used to give so much more! Where’s the extra information about the musicians and the Similar Artist link? I learned of so much music and music history from this. And the videos? And all of the other really neat features. If I’m the only one who doesn’t have it, well I’ve had bad luck lately so it wouldn’t surprise me, but if it’s truly gone since the update in February, I don’t think I like this app much anymore. Might as well google a song if it doesn’t have the heart and knowledge and all the wonderful work put into it from before. 🤷‍♀️
Not to great...
by Emma Veliz on 2020/03/26 02:18
When I got this app I thought it was the perfect one for me. I searched a song and I browsed through the list and I didn’t find what I was looking for. So I tried over and over and over! All of a sudden, the screen started glitching up. And every song I tried to play, it said sorry can not load lyrics or videos! So I DO NOT recommend this app.
5 Stars! 1 Issue!
by LifetimeMacysShopper on 2020/03/26 02:10
Depending on the color of the background, you may not be able to see the track info. White font on a white background = invisible!
Used to love the app
by 2ndamendmentsupporter on 2020/03/25 11:44
If you would’ve asked me a few years ago I would’ve gave this app 5 stars. It was great for finding songs and taking you directly to the song to buy it in ITunes. Now, it will find the song, but it won’t take you to the song anymore so I have to search the song again in ITunes. If this issue is fixed I’ll update my review but until then I give it 2 stars.
Obscure not a problem
by Somewit on 2020/03/21 05:35
I’ve found info on many obscure songs through this app. Impressive, and very useful. Keep up the good work.

Is telling me that it’s always adding more songs but I did a part of a song that I dont know and at this time all songs must be actualized please send me a message if the app is actulized thank you
What happen to this APP????
by Mpix123 on 2020/03/18 16:14
Once a fine useable APP but Siri knows more music than this thing So disappointed in the multitude of failures. Always tells me that I’m off line despite everything else working on my phone. I want to decent APP is now a piece of crap. Minus stars
Never works
by get f is you add app on 2020/03/17 02:49
It never picks up anything! If there’s a hint of background music it does not work. Half the time if it’s just the song playing and no other noise it still never works.
🥵

Can not hear song all the way it keeps stopping after a minute and going to another song🤬
Theme from Forrest Gump
by Loralie323 on 2020/03/17 01:02
My mom had been trying to figure out this tune and I couldn’t hum it into Shazam to get the answer. I downloaded this app and it took me 4 times but I finally got my answer!! Mystery solved. Thank you Sound Hound!! It really works.
It’s awesome just??? There’s a problem?
by Stjay on 2020/03/14 20:58
Hi, my name is Zoe Lake I’m a HUGE FAN of George Strait and I wanted to sing along his songs now I didn’t mean just sing along I mean that I can see the words and you know? Oh, btw if y’all saw George Strait tell him that I have a crush on him! Cuz I do I think he’s cute, sexy and handsome the sexiest cowboy I saw! Lol! ❤️☺️☺️❤️❤️😉 ( no fence Blake Shelton and Garth brooks!) also I’m just 13 years old! But if George Strait was around my age I would wanna date him! Xoxo! Also, I have brown hair, jeans, a kind of western shirt, cowboy hat and boots and a cowgirl boots!
Not enough
by Ivelisse-Manda on 2020/03/14 19:09
I really tried to use it but it never got the song that I was putting it on for. I prefer Shazam.
It only knows basic songs
by cheeno1998 on 2020/03/13 06:14
This app did not help me. It didn’t know any of the songs I was looking for except ABCs...
Each update become worse
by Rickzaffespi on 2020/03/12 11:18
Each update of the app is worse than previous one, with anoying notifications, and failing in the research of the song wanted
❤️❤️❤️❤️ 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❣️
Good app, not certain about the hate.
by wontpayforpremium on 2020/05/20 07:59
Disclaimer: This review is written within minutes of downloading the app. It will not include problems with using the app in the long term. So I downloaded this app in the hopes of finding a song that has been driving me insane for 6 months because I couldn’t think of its name. I read a lot of hate comments in recent months absolutely flaming this app, and I cannot tell if it’s legitimate, because they all cite the same problem. So I was skeptical going into using the app. I hummed the tune twice and didn’t get any results right away, which is when I realized that you have to go into the history tab of the app in order to actually find the results, because lo and behold, there’s the song that had been stuck in my head for months. So again, I’m not certain about this app, or if this was a “one off never gonna happen again” scenario, but the app did what I wanted it to do, and so it gets four stars for finding a song I couldn’t remember, but loses one for the awful formatting.
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?!
Starting to go downhill
by hidlod83 on 2020/04/18 21:05
I work in music. I use this app constantly. The ‘improvements’ are fun and all, but the main purpose of this app is to identify music, right? Many moons ago, that part worked. As of a few updates ago, when I do as I’ve always done with the app, all of a sudden, songs that should be recognizable in seconds take two tries. Songs that DO get recognized don’t show up on the screen, and the app tries to identify all over again, and if I don’t manually check my history after every individual go, I end up with two copies of everything, or nothing at all. This is infuriating. Please work on the original algorithm because what’s happening isn’t cool, and if it continues, you’ll find that more people, including me, uninstall.
The best song finder PERIOD
by DShame1 on 2020/01/13 02:06
Ive used a few, but I found this one in suggestions. And I have been using it for almost 6 years. Not only is it accurate but it picks up songs anywhere! Middle of a restaurant, barely hear the person next to you, and you happen to catch that song playing faintly in the background? Stick your phone up and SoundHound always gets it. In the next room and stereo is on across the house? Yep, it gets it. Simply my favorite reason for this app. It gets the song regardless of the background noise.
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.
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 🌝
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.
It doesn’t work right.
by abcodntucmekd on 2020/06/23 01:20
This app doesn’t work for me. I was playing guitar and played this riff I randomly remembered. So I downloaded this app and played it to it, but it couldn’t come up with anything. After consulting a family member, it turned out to be a bit from “Nothing Else Matters”. To further test the app I played several other songs into it, hummed songs to it, and even sang the lyrics to several classic songs to this app. It failed every single time. It only works when I play the original recording by the artist. Now, I realize other people have had wonderful experiences with this app, so it could be a hardware issue on my end, or maybe even a pebkac error. I don’t know. But my experience with it was negative.
Really good
by MrsLJ on 2019/04/27 16:20
App is easily five stars if they improved the quality over Bluetooth. I also do not like that the app defaults to not using Bluetooth because this means that any Bluetooth devices you have will be automatically disconnected when you open the app. The app also gets 4stars because it will get a song wrong around 5 to 10% of the time if you’re using it while on the road when there’s ambient driving noise. Unfortunately this is the only time I actually am using the app. To know what the song on the radio is.
Used to be great...
by ScrabbleNut on 2018/06/23 12:11
SoundHound used to be great. It would find any song, you were able to type in some lyrics and find the song you were looking g for. I bought a lot of music from songs i found here. But something has changed with this app. Today i was trying to find (once again) a song i remembered by Earth Wind and Fire. When i typed it in, i didn’t even get the artist. I got a handful of songs, most of which weren’t even sung by them. The album section had 2 of their albums and a bunch of karaoke albums. WTH! where are songs? Where are the dozens of albums they’ve made? What is going on? After using this app for years do i have go looking for a decent music app? I am not happy about this. At all.
Another Has Been...
by Oncfari on 2017/10/08 18:18
This used to be a great app — but no more. Now it takes me thru some random set of BS every time I try to ID a song. Half the time the song is over by the time I finally get back to the song search function. Also, it makes a lot more mistakes (some I think are intentional to sell other music) and often returns zero results, which was previously rare to non-existent. Another example of change for the sake of change killing the golden goose!
useless - hummung or whistling is not working
by Sesamme on 2019/10/21 09:57
I had a song stuck in my head (it still is) but could only remember the melody. SoundHound sounded like a solution, but alas - too good to be true - it couldn’t find anything by whistling or by humming. Then I tried to hum and whistle very famous songs like Yesterday, or Halleluya - it didn’t find them either! Sometimes it was showing some unrelated results in Chinese, but mostly - nothing. Then I tried to sing them with words, and finally - voila, it works! So - it’s almost useless, because if I know the words, I can find a song anyway... Also - in the free version, the ad is often obscuring the button, so I must stop and restart the search. Don’t understand the 5 star ratings...
Beyond Amazing
by Colecast1213 on 2019/07/07 00:13
Had an obscure soundtrack song stuck in my head and it was killing me that I couldn’t remember what movie it was from. Being a soundtrack, classical style song with no lyrics, there’s nothing I could Google to figure it out. I stumbled onto mention of this app, and that it could look up songs based on humming, so I thought, “what the hell.” I’m not even that good at humming, and first try, it nailed it (turned out to be “Arrival To Earth” from Transformers). I’m beyond impressed. So long Shazam!
What Happen
by LQROC on 2018/04/06 16:20
When this app first came out years ago it was awesome. It was able to find it starts songs that Shazam could not do ever sense and for the past year and in the updates in the search engine is not functional. App over Shazam but now it can’t at times pull the most recent songs or artists. The response time of the search engine is Eva slow. There is no doubt in comparing the two apps that Shazam has gotten an edge over this app. You guys know from experience that your app is not up to par with Shazam please make me a believer in next Suzanne wants the better search engine music app and I will go back to reading this a five star
Muhammad’s SoundHound review
by Afroblue of Yale on 2018/09/08 17:40
Sound hound finds 90% of the songs I seek to identify. But in new music genres it sometimes does not recognize, but this is a problem with all the music recognition services. This may not be an issue for most users. I am a musician, professional dancer and instructor, a DJ and an academic - so my needs are extensive. On the whole, as a sound hound user for many years, l recommend it. I do to all my students. The latest feature of tying it to playlist is wonderful. Thank You
Wonderful app
by AppAHollic24 on 2019/03/06 04:04
I absolutely love this incredible application. It has helped me out so much when out and about and I hear a song that I enjoy I just open up the app and click on the orange button and let it listen to the song and quickly it tells me the song title and the artist couldn’t ask for a more wonderful app that does identify songs quickly even if you’re not right next to where the song is coming from.
My go-to ‘what’s that song playing?’ app :D
by AnGee91 on 2018/09/29 06:50
My dad had this app on one of the earliest iPhone generations (before I had my own phone) & I made sure I downloaded this when I got a phone in my hands. I love it. I wish it was able to detect more multicultural songs as well, but it’s also shown me so many that it just overrides that comment, because I knows it’s developing more & more. A very cool thing: it saves the songs you’ve had it listen & you can go to that at anytime✨
Convenient as it is awesome
by Jewlz712 on 2018/03/23 02:47
Ever heard a song on the radio that you loved, but the DJ didn’t say the name or even who it was? Doesn’t that make you mad? Well will this app, all you have to do is pull it up and press the center a button, takes a few seconds and it tells you the song, artist, album, and even gives you links to buy the song. It also has a lyric scroll so you can sing along. There’s really nothing bad to say about it. I love it.
Happy, Happy, Happy!
by Stillbuggin on 2017/12/07 16:05
I guess one would think I was happy with Sound Hound! I've had a blast with this app over the years. Recently, I looked up a title and artist for my 90 year old ex-mother in law. To see the joy in her eyes as she was able to sing along, and and hear her comments made this app so worth it in my book. "I remember that song!" I've periodically had to look up lyrics, but I'm fine with that. I've always enjoyed Sound Hound and GLW, I'll continue in the future!
What used to be great is now uselesss...
by MisterEBox on 2017/12/23 23:05
Awful. Tried to identify ‘Red Right Hand’ by Iggy Pop & Jarvis Cocker. Took about ten tries and then when I try to play it, a little window opens with a picture of Iggy Pop, playing some instrumental elevator loop with a description of the actual song I want to hear but not the song itself. I don’t need a description, I’m quite capable of describing it myself thank you, I want to hear the song. Also- it’s not convenient to ‘talk’ out loud to an app unless you’re driving a car. When trying to improve the app, try leaving the elements that brought people to it in the first place alone. i.e.: Don’t try and fix what isn’t broken. Useless, what happened to this app?
Best sound fetching app ever!!
by Angelito123$ on 2018/03/26 04:03
Ever hear a song on the go or on the radio, and wonder who’s that jamming out!!! Well gurl! Don’t be stupid! Sound hound that song!!! Love the way it also maps out where it was used and what song that was. Honestly, I use it as my personal passport to mark my conquests around the world!!! Love the way it quickly and effortlessly it gives you the option to connect to your iTunes in so many ways! Just download it and check it out!
Can’t identify singing or humming well at all
by Hugusdamoos on 2019/04/26 15:12
I’m a musician so I can sing on key. I tried singing Steve Miller Band’s “Space Cowboy”, Duke Ellington’s “Take The A Train”, Jefferson Airplane’s “Lather”, and Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” The latter was the only tune SoundHound could recognize. The first few times I sang the songs without lyrics, just scatting or humming; the next few times I actually sang the lyrics. No results for any of them except “Moondance.” So the song you are trying to get this app to recognize had better be extremely obvious, in which case you probably already knew the name of the song to begin with! Pretty poor app for song identification using voice. Deleted.

I LOVE this app! I use SoundHound all the time! It’s especially great to have when I hear a song I like but don’t know who it is or name of the song. I pull up SoundHound and in no time I’ve got the name of the song and artist. I love that lyrics are provided (when available). I’ve bragged up SoundHound to all my friends and family and there are a few that knew a good thing when they hear it. Now they are sharing in the wonderful world of SoundHound! Thanks for a great app!!
Oh what app
by Nice2spice on 2019/03/22 21:08
Hi I just want to say how much I enjoy this app. It’s so nice to be able to see the lyrics, I stopped listening to the words along time ago. I’d listen to the rhythms, Sing the chorus part ,but that’s all I would know, never knowing exactly what the was about. Can’t say I haven’t blushed a few times, after I realized what the lyrics were. This app brings me back to some great memories and really helps to keep me up with current music. thank you so much for this app
Better with time
by Aj2100c on 2018/07/29 23:23
This app gets better with time. Now that it has undergone several versions, it runs faster. Another neat and fun feature is being able to open a map and see and hear what others are discovering. Of course, when you’re looking for a song, that gets shared too. And, I don’t mind sharing the tunes I find when I go out there. Being able to she’s that with the world is the beauty of this app.
Opening time.
by drummerboy 777 on 2018/10/23 12:15
I love Sound Hound! But I would give 5 stars of the app or the live tile in the side menu would open or react faster cause I lose a lot of time waiting on it to open. Sometimes I even miss the opportunity to get new music cause I'm having to wait for the app to open! Faster openings or "instant on, or more Mic access!" Abilities!!! Where maybe the second you touch the listening button, it Instantly starts recording but after the app finally opens....... It will realize what it just recorded and act appropriately at THAT point? Just a suggestion......? Maybe?
SoundHound review
by sejrec56 on 2017/12/14 16:17
My review is that SoundHound works incredibly well. When I think of all the years I’d hear a song and the DJ wouldn’t say who the artist was, now most of the time SoundHound answers that for me. But 25 percent of the time it can’t figure out what the song is or artist. How does SoundHound determine who the song or artist is? Anyways SoundHound have become indispensable for me. Being a musician myself I’m glad I can find out who it was I heard and even had a bio on the group, artist or writer! Thanks creators of sound hound!
Kinda Fun
by Arpy123 on 2018/07/11 04:25
I love a lot of different kinds of music and sooooo many times I love a song and know nothing about it. I can’t find it unless it had a distinctive lyric. But this identifies so much faster and up come the lyrics and the album cover so it is fun. I’ve added so many songs because I finally can find my favorites from movies and tv. Even works in a store with a soundtrack playing. I just now realized how much I use it and love it.
Bluetooth issue
by RUNNINGONMT on 2019/09/08 22:36
You’ve made a critical mistake with this version. Whenever I’m in My car listening to a song, then open SoundHound to identify the song do I can see the lyrics, SoundHound immediately connects to Bluetooth and then the song can no longer be heard. Have to then turn off my phone Bluetooth, which disconnects my phone speaker from my car, so i can’t talk on the phone without delinking my phone to me car. Such a Hassle!!! Not worth it, so I use Shazam.
I really like this app
by Loves_Lucy_ on 2018/09/09 19:42
So many times I have come across a song that I like and don’t know the name of. I always click on this app and it never fails to tell me the names of my favorite songs. Within about 20 seconds or so it gives me the name, the artist and the album name. I do wish the lyrics would pop up on all the songs. Most of the songs have lyrics that you can follow with, but there are some that don’t. Overall I love this app and will use it for songs to come.
Who would have thought...
by Greenchristian on 2019/10/28 05:26
This is an amazing app. If you love music, and have ever heard part of any music, and wished you knew what it is, this is definitely one app to get. I’ve used it in a car with radio on, or watching something on tv that sounds familiar, and even been in a grocery store and wondered what was the music playing overhead. Who would have ever thought something like this was possible. Just too amazing.
Used to be good
by Mystigo on 2020/06/26 04:37
Many years ago I shook the hand of one of the developers at a conference. This app was the best thing I had on my phone. You could launch it in seconds and near instantly start identifying music. It is 10 years later and I just rage deleted it. It takes 20+ seconds to launch, then the ads come up, then the listen button comes up. When you press it is says a bunch of stupid stuff, and eventually it says it couldn’t hear anything. Siri named the tune within 5 seconds of me asking it to. That’s all I wanted. This app has lost its way. In 10 years it has gotten worse with every release. It is time to part ways with it.
Works great but WHY NOTIFICATIONS??
by Kakkxnhsgaframkkk on 2020/02/20 23:02
Why does this app give me random notifications? It does what it should do (most of the time, has a hard time with identifying music over ambient noise like at a coffee shop but whatever same) but why do I need a pop up notification with random lyrics from a song I have never looked up and don’t want to know? I get that I can opt out of notifications or turn them off but why would you design this app to be purposefully annoying? So unnecessary

DOESNT WORK
by Mattisthered on 2020/07/06 13:02
You say you can hum songs and your dumb app knows them. This is a LIE I have hummed super popular songs I know and it still doesn’t work. Garbage. Don’t waste your time
Playback ..
by brolkevin on 2020/07/06 04:18
So I have the setting to add music to Apple Music ... I go to SoundHound and play my playlist and it doesn’t play ... I press play and it doesn’t play .. tried reinstalling, closing opening the app, did the same for Apple Music and nothing .. may just be a but like me playing back music and switching apps cuts back on quality and skips. Great app and it’s a 5 other than that .. free app so don’t mind my constructive comment
App crashing
by ryahbsv on 2020/07/03 03:00
Lately it’s been lagging hasn’t been finding the song when pressing to search it. Having issues reading music or understanding, basically the app is now bad used to be my favorite app always finding the song right away but hasn’t been meeting it’s potential
Good but
by LeonMmm900 on 2020/06/29 14:47
Too many notifications from an app I don’t need it from
Did not work
by best/good game on 2020/06/28 04:53
I downloaded this app to listen to my favorite songs when I tried to listen to the it said they were “unavailable” I do not recommend this app to anyone.
SoundHound is done
by Rigadoohaus on 2020/06/27 19:12
I used SoundHound since the beginning. But is just isn’t special anymore. It cannot recognize songs at all. It takes 2-3 tries to find a song or it won’t find them at all. If you use Siri which is just Shazam works every time. I’m switching and retiring years of using Shazam. Also they have a bug if you log in via Facebook and have 2-auth on. Also never works with Apple Watch. Bye bye.
Cant find most songs im looking for -_-
by CassyWiedem on 2020/06/27 12:10
This app cant find half the stuff i listen to. Please fix this.

This app just knows every song
by _alextnt on 2020/06/26 02:17
Just this app is just sooooooo good just because it knows every song and it’s freeeeee
Almost 5 Stars
by Britt Nik on 2020/06/25 16:38
I love this App! Rarely has it let me down when discovering new music. The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is the fact that I can’t replay my liked songs though a Bluetooth speaker. Unless I’m missing something, I can only play trough my phone.
It doesn’t work right.
by abcodntucmekd on 2020/06/23 01:20
This app doesn’t work for me. I was playing guitar and played this riff I randomly remembered. So I downloaded this app and played it to it, but it couldn’t come up with anything. After consulting a family member, it turned out to be a bit from “Nothing Else Matters”. To further test the app I played several other songs into it, hummed songs to it, and even sang the lyrics to several classic songs to this app. It failed every single time. It only works when I play the original recording by the artist. Now, I realize other people have had wonderful experiences with this app, so it could be a hardware issue on my end, or maybe even a pebkac error. I don’t know. But my experience with it was negative.
A God Send.
by Get Good. on 2020/06/22 04:19
This app is amazing, it’s helped me find 2 songs I was never able to. See one of the ones I was looking for I knew had ‘Free’ in it but whenever I would search for it online none of the results were ever what I was looking for, or remembered what the song sounded like. However! I was able to find the song using Soundhound by searching the lyrics and BAM it was there! Thanks y’all, it’s been bugging me a long time not being able to find it but that day is over. BTW, the song is “Free” by Mandisa, check it out, it slaps.
Never finds songs
by ronnie2k03 on 2020/06/21 19:57
I keep typing in the lyrics in the search bars like it said and it always pops up with popular songs that don’t even have the same lyrics. I tried humming and even singing the lyrics into the microphone like it said and every time it just says that there was no results. I tried singing very popular songs that have clear lyrics and it still doesn’t even detect it.
Really? SMH
by ~Monicalll on 2020/06/20 02:15
Was looking for a particular Gospel Song, sound hound could find it, which is ok. However the message said “Oh Sh_ _” we couldn’t find it. This type of language can be offensive so I have deleted the app.
Garbage!
by MGKHAHAHA on 2020/06/18 19:53
This app is useless. Ive tried to find multiple songs with no results. Then tried to get it to find many songs I already know. This app can’t figure it out ever, sorry. No good
Pls add this
by g bbbgvb on 2020/06/16 14:34
This app is awesome but it needs to be able to recognize music without words please do this
It has never worked
by Segmented on 2020/06/13 22:00
I’ve never had this app do what it’s supposed to
You are the best!
by MinaV on 2020/06/07 03:58
What Shazam couldn’t find, you have. A five second clip, boom, you found it and it was the right song on the first try. This app is amazeballs. I’d forgotten about this app, but when I couldn’t find a song played on a reality tv show I saw tonight, I remembered this app. I’m so glad I did because not only was this obscure song, Young and Free by Shari Short, was so instantly found by SoundHound, you found it on YouTube mere seconds later. Good puppy!!! I think I’m in love! 🥰 Thank you!!!
Crashes
by MelloKitty95 on 2020/06/06 08:09
Use to LOVE this app til it started constantly crashing within 1-4 minutes of the app being open or at the longest play maybe two or three songs most then crash and it’s really getting on my nerves. Is there a new app like this that I don’t know about? Or fix it. That’d be legit.
Not very good
by Mjkrrs on 2020/06/05 17:35
I have had this app for several years, but for the past year or more Sound Hound has not worked well. Their updates have definitely not been improvements. In recent months the app has been pretty much worthless. It seems to have no idea what any song is. If you have an iPhone, ask Siri and get an answer before the song is gone.
If it ain’t broke, why fix it!
by Jellynunez on 2020/06/04 11:36
I would have rated this app higher. The reason I haven’t is because the previous versions in the past allowed lyrics on the iPhone to be in landscape mode and since then there has been way to many pop up ads. Please bring back landscape view for lyrics.
Ok
by babykitten1000 on 2020/06/04 03:30
I usually love this app but at random times I can’t search anything which makes it very unhelpful. Everytime I search something it says they can’t find it.
Horrible ap, works 40% of time and also supports racists
by Grownup on 2020/06/03 03:37
App sucked anyhow but this company supports and advertises violent organizations bringing us riots. Deleted it today.
paid to have ads removed
by ricky3963 on 2020/06/02 14:26
i paid to have ads removed but since last update i am now getting ads
THIS APP IS A MIRACLE
by Tye Downs on 2020/06/02 13:08
I literally spent days trying to find a song stuck in my head. I even tried Shazam and that couldn’t locate the song by humming. I did a quick google search on other ways to find songs and I saw a mention of Sound Hound. They said that you could hum the song and it would find it for you. I tried it and sure enough it worked within SECONDS! I had spent so long searching for the song on YouTube and trying to type in the lyrics I knew. I frickin love this app, thank you guys!
App Is a Scam
by Ty23468324888 on 2020/05/31 17:43
It doesn’t work, just says can’t find the song on whatever I sing. I recommend to nobody, never download!
Please add support for Google Play Music
by Nate Lee-Wolf on 2020/05/31 01:06
I can’t find a single app that will link to Google Play Music/YouTube Music on iPhone. Please consider adding this.

Doesn’t work
by Aninwa buachie on 2020/05/28 00:07
When i try it the first time in a song, it says it doesn’t hear anything, second time i try it it comes. It’s really annoying. I don’t know why everyone’s saying it’s good. And i definitely play it loud enough.
Cannot Recognize Many Songs
by awsnyde on 2020/05/27 13:13
Skip it. I can’t even tell you the number of songs—just in the last few days—that SoundHound did not recognize that Shazam identified in a second. Granted, I listen primarily to indie rock, so maybe this will work for you if you are solely trying to identify top 20 songs.
Sing feature
by yeahmhm on 2020/05/27 03:24
The singing/humming feature does not work so well.
Bad UI/Broken UI
by alphawolf321 on 2020/05/27 03:04
Whenever I get results from humming a song, there’s no way to exit the screen showing the results. There’s no exit button or back button. It’s really strange.

Ah, 💩
by dpradis on 2020/05/24 06:32
I couldn’t find a 5 ⭐️ review because this app doesn’t even recognize a lot of famous Beatles songs, much less that song you’ve been humming that you heard at that one party.
PERFECT!!!
by æëÿûïœãß on 2020/05/24 01:40
Five seconds of the song and boom
Doesn’t work
by LeeLee122793 on 2020/05/22 14:18
I hummed a tune I was looking for, didn’t work. So then I tried more popular songs and still couldn’t find them.
It used to be good
by L M O on 2020/05/21 15:04
Every time this app gets an update, it gets worse and worse. When I try to figure out what song is playing on the radio, it say try humming or singing even tho the song is playing, I try to turn volume up even louder. 99% it's says oops can't find it or it didn't hear anything. And when it does hear something it shows some random song.
I CANT BELIEVE
by anon-nn-mn_Mnmnnnn nnn on 2020/05/20 23:21
there was a song I was looking for for 10 + years and I just hummed and found it! I’m so delighted!!!
Good app, not certain about the hate.
by wontpayforpremium on 2020/05/20 07:59
Disclaimer: This review is written within minutes of downloading the app. It will not include problems with using the app in the long term. So I downloaded this app in the hopes of finding a song that has been driving me insane for 6 months because I couldn’t think of its name. I read a lot of hate comments in recent months absolutely flaming this app, and I cannot tell if it’s legitimate, because they all cite the same problem. So I was skeptical going into using the app. I hummed the tune twice and didn’t get any results right away, which is when I realized that you have to go into the history tab of the app in order to actually find the results, because lo and behold, there’s the song that had been stuck in my head for months. So again, I’m not certain about this app, or if this was a “one off never gonna happen again” scenario, but the app did what I wanted it to do, and so it gets four stars for finding a song I couldn’t remember, but loses one for the awful formatting.
What the heck happened to this app?
by Neo_9d9 on 2020/05/19 22:06
Just stopped helping find music lately!!! 🤷🏽‍♂️ FIX IT! And spare us the notion of “Check your internet/WiFi connection! Blah blah blah” Just fix this please!
Humming or whistling don’t work.
by Chewyourfingers on 2020/05/16 04:08
This is the go to app I would use to find a song I would forget here and there but now it just doesn’t work. I whistled a very simple, well known song and it couldn’t find it at all. I did this after I couldn’t find a song that I do not have any info of. I thought, “I’ll try a super simple well known wing to make sure this app is working correctly” and nothing. Well, nothing is perfect and that is especially true for “technology”.
Latest update ruins functionality
by DudeAbides59 on 2020/05/16 00:57
Why do companies have to keep bloating their apps to the point they’re unusable. Used to be a great app that identified unknown music quickly. Now it is just like the app I left for it, Shazam. So disappointing.
The best I can find
by mariahcareydag on 2020/05/15 18:27
Y’all are hating on this app!! Like this is the best app with song recognition I can find. I tried Shazam, Alexa, Siri and this was the only app that could find this one song that I had a 5 second excerpt from. Very nice sound hound 👍🏻
Hate ads
by Khamis H on 2020/05/15 00:27
Ads are terrible!
Has become irrelevant
by 2cowboy1 on 2020/05/13 19:23
I’ve used this app for years and always enjoyed it. But now .... the things it used to do well are no longer. Most of the time when SoundHound it can’t find the song; Shazam finds it instantly. Jack of all trades and Master of none syndrome.
Oh wow
by biltinisbal on 2020/05/12 13:28
I had a song stuck in my head but couldn't remember any of the words, so I looked for an app that would help me, and found Soundhound and it found it! It was a Japanese song too! No wonder I couldn't remember the words 😂 very impressed

I don’t know why. The idea of having lyrics with your music is sooo good. I linked my account to Spotify Premium (Very High Quality), but i pair with my AirPods and sounds trash. Worse than a radio stream
Dissapointed
by ABST6 on 2020/05/11 21:36
So, I’m not one to write reviews.. except I really wanted to write this one. The app doesn’t work. The humming feature doesn’t give you songs. It always says no results. I was trying to see if the song I was writing was original and I was pretty glad when it said no results matched for the tune. BUT. Then I was curious to see if I sang or played a famous song it would give results. I did “treat you better” by Shawn mendes and even the abcs and twinkle twinkle. And dude. Come on. If this app can’t detect the abcs I’m gonna be disappointed no duh. I think the lyric search works. I’m not sure. But you can google that too. Good day.
Humming feature doesn’t work
by niklas1000010101010 on 2020/05/11 15:20
I’ve tried humming and whistling for many songs, even extremely common ones to test it. However, it can never find them.
Slow and bug on the bug

Everything works slow, freezing, share wrong songs, ad, slow, slow, slow
Bluetooth problem
by Isaac Fierro Villalpando on 2020/05/07 06:48
The app works very well, but the issue I have is that when I try to listen to a song, the song play on my phone instead of my earbuds. I don’t know if this is supposed to do that or it’s a glitch. I just want to know.
❤️!!
by pakyh on 2020/05/03 23:45
This app is so great their is soo many musics that I wanna know about and it’s just so great and accurate and I love it and theirs lyrics and thsi is sooooooo great I love it!!!!!!!!
Turned To Crap
by GreysEnforcer on 2020/05/02 21:01
This app started out great. No it never finds any song. Seems like the creators just gave up on it. So it turned to crap. Well done on ruining what could’ve stayed an awesome app.👏🏻
Trash
by ItalianStallion18 on 2020/05/02 14:36
It says you can hum into the phone and it will find the song... my a**! You could have an artist hum their OWN song into the phone and it wouldn’t find sh*t. Never ever works right.
No
by TheNumberBlue._ on 2020/05/01 21:34
Didn’t find any songs. I was testing it to see if it would work and it didn’t. Poop.
No landscape, No split view?

This is bad on iPad
Your app doesn’t work at all anymore
by oo2242 LBW on 2020/04/30 19:01
Your sound hound app is NOT WORKING AT ALL!!! I use it all the time and now it suddenly won’t e en do anything at all. You press the SoundHound app it goes to the orange screen and after about2-3 seconds it completely shuts off. Very frustrating an y’all please do an update for bugs
No lyrica
by GuitarFool72 on 2020/04/29 14:53
Stupid thing has quit finding lyrics. For example Africa by Toto which of course it should be able to find. For me this pretty much makes the app worthless. Tech support said try uninstalling and reinstalling and the lyrica function worked for like two days.
Stopped working
by Staytruetoyourvalues on 2020/04/29 05:06
Stopped working, but it was great before the update.
So weak

by Verxendii on 2020/04/28 03:52
What’s the use of having a humming or singing feature if it doesn’t work. I understand the intentions of the app and that’s to differentiate between Shazam but how about removing the feature and actually make it work. I love the concept, But keep it just a concept. Clock out for me baby.
Rarely works - prefer Shazam
by Subiedoo66 on 2020/04/27 12:58
Unused to use this app all the time. Recently it has stopped working for the most part. It fails to recognize the most basic songs. I’ve started using Shazam, especially the auto-Shazam option. I tired of getting no result, only to have Shazam identify what’s playing. Now I mostly only try SoundHound if Shazam doesn’t recognize what’s playing.

No Landscape Mode for iPad
by 0verc4ffeinated on 2020/04/24 22:37
Downloaded this app at the recommendation of Spotify and was super excited for the Spotify integration... but found out it had no landscape mode for the iPad. I use my iPad for music while I work and keep it exclusively in landscape mode during that time... which renders this app completely useless for looking up lyrics while I listen to my music. I imagine it would be difficult to prop your iPad up in portrait mode for most functional uses of this app... I deleted the app and started using Shazam instead. Sigh.
Totally stopped working.
by Kjr12521 on 2020/04/21 07:37
This was for years my go-to app for discovering music until it suddenly stopped working. First, it couldn’t hear the music coming from my tv after it always heard that volume level in the past. Then when my device was moved closer and it could hear the music, it stopped its ability to recognize what was playing. I had no choice but switch to a competitor. it not only heard the music where Shazam couldn’t, but heard the music and recognized it so much faster. I ditched Shazam and went to the competitor and solved all of my problems. Shazam is broken. It’s developers do not care.
Used to love - not anymore
by 12mtn on 2020/04/21 00:13
I’ve used this app for many years. Loved it. Used it a lot. But the last year or so, it’s been horrible! Now, every single search comes back with nothing. Nothing. And these were of the original singer, on the radio, popular songs, so should have been easy. Don’t know what happened but something did... Sad.
This app is garbage
by Tayl0rtheGREAT on 2020/04/20 21:03
I havent had one song recognized with this app

Starting to go downhill
by hidlod83 on 2020/04/18 21:05
I work in music. I use this app constantly. The ‘improvements’ are fun and all, but the main purpose of this app is to identify music, right? Many moons ago, that part worked. As of a few updates ago, when I do as I’ve always done with the app, all of a sudden, songs that should be recognizable in seconds take two tries. Songs that DO get recognized don’t show up on the screen, and the app tries to identify all over again, and if I don’t manually check my history after every individual go, I end up with two copies of everything, or nothing at all. This is infuriating. Please work on the original algorithm because what’s happening isn’t cool, and if it continues, you’ll find that more people, including me, uninstall.
Never seems to find any songs for me-
by Chickk let's on 2020/04/18 19:31
Unless you need an app that tells you the name of the sings everybody already knows- this app isn’t for you- It cannot locate most songs - doesn’t even seem to try- This used to be a 5star app- but now- Its useless-

1000 times better

had half a melody and 1 word to a song. couldn’t find the song anywhere so I got this app. for some reason it couldn’t figure it out though. probably a great app overall but it could definitely use some work just sayin
Slow
by wysiwyg77 on 2020/03/30 01:30
A lot of times this app does not recognize the song and it takes several attempts to come up with it.
Super!
by ljdancesballroom on 2020/03/28 22:00
I love using SoundHound. Most of the time it locates the tune. I would like for it to find more in the ballroom style music and beach music like Shag from Myrtle Beach, SC. Thanks.
Don't get it
by -/:;()!$&@" on 2020/03/28 20:41
Literally doesn't work
Where’s the Rest of it???
by CrzyCute on 2020/03/26 05:02
Been using SoundHound for the past three phones of mine 😂 and it’s always been really great. The response has always been quick and the live lyrics make for some terrible sing-alongs to be had...that all said, it used to give so much more! Where’s the extra information about the musicians and the Similar Artist link? I learned of so much music and music history from this. And the videos? And all of the other really neat features. If I’m the only one who doesn’t have it, well I’ve had bad luck lately so it wouldn’t surprise me, but if it’s truly gone since the update in February, I don’t think I like this app much anymore. Might as well google a song if it doesn’t have the heart and knowledge and all the wonderful work put into it from before. 🤷‍♀️
Not to great...
by Emma Veliz on 2020/03/26 02:18
When I got this app I thought it was the perfect one for me. I searched a song and I browsed through the list and I didn’t find what I was looking for. So I tried over and over and over! All of a sudden, the screen started glitching up. And every song I tried to play, it said sorry can not load lyrics or videos! So I DO NOT recommend this app.
5 Stars! 1 Issue!
by LifetimeMacysShopper on 2020/03/26 02:10
Depending on the color of the background, you may not be able to see the track info. White font on a white background = invisible!
Used to love the app
by 2ndamendmentsupporter on 2020/03/25 11:44
If you would’ve asked me a few years ago I would’ve gave this app 5 stars. It was great for finding songs and taking you directly to the song to buy it in ITunes. Now, it will find the song, but it won’t take you to the song anymore so I have to search the song again in ITunes. If this issue is fixed I’ll update my review but until then I give it 2 stars.
Obscure not a problem
by Somewit on 2020/03/21 05:35

Never works
by get f is you add app on 2020/03/17 02:49
It never picks up anything! If there’s a hint of background music it does not work. Half the time if it’s just the song playing and no other noise it still never works.

It’s awesome just??? There’s a problem?

Hi, my name is Zoe Lake I’m a HUGE FAN of George Strait and I wanted to sing along his songs now I didn’t mean just sing along I mean that I can see the words and you know? Oh, btw if y’all saw George Strait tell him that I have a crush on him! Cuz I do I think he’s cute, sexy and handsome the sexiest cowboy I saw! Lol! ❤️☺️☺️❤️❤️😉 ( no fence Blake Shelton and Garth brooks!) also I’m just 13 years old! But if George Strait was around my age I would wanna date him! Xoxo! Also, I have brown hair, jeans, a kind of western shirt, cowboy hat and boots and a cowgirl boots!
Not enough

It only knows basic songs

❤️❤️❤️❤️ 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❣️
Good app, not certain about the hate.
by wontpayforpremium on 2020/05/20 07:59
Disclaimer: This review is written within minutes of downloading the app. It will not include problems with using the app in the long term. So I downloaded this app in the hopes of finding a song that has been driving me insane for 6 months because I couldn’t think of its name. I read a lot of hate comments in recent months absolutely flaming this app, and I cannot tell if it’s legitimate, because they all cite the same problem. So I was skeptical going into using the app. I hummed the tune twice and didn’t get any results right away, which is when I realized that you have to go into the history tab of the app in order to actually find the results, because lo and behold, there’s the song that had been stuck in my head for months. So again, I’m not certain about this app, or if this was a “one off never gonna happen again” scenario, but the app did what I wanted it to do, and so it gets four stars for finding a song I couldn’t remember, but loses one for the awful formatting.
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?!

by DShame1 on 2020/01/13 02:06
Ive used a few, but I found this one in suggestions. And I have been using it for almost 6 years. Not only is it accurate but it picks up songs anywhere! Middle of a restaurant, barely hear the person next to you, and you happen to catch that song playing faintly in the background? Stick your phone up and SoundHound always gets it. In the next room and stereo is on across the house? Yep, it gets it. Simply my favorite reason for this app. It gets the song regardless of the background noise.
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.
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 🌝
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.
It doesn’t work right.
by abcodntucmekd on 2020/06/23 01:20
This app doesn’t work for me. I was playing guitar and played this riff I randomly remembered. So I downloaded this app and played it to it, but it couldn’t come up with anything. After consulting a family member, it turned out to be a bit from “Nothing Else Matters”. To further test the app I played several other songs into it, hummed songs to it, and even sang the lyrics to several classic songs to this app. It failed every single time. It only works when I play the original recording by the artist. Now, I realize other people have had wonderful experiences with this app, so it could be a hardware issue on my end, or maybe even a pebkac error. I don’t know. But my experience with it was negative.
Really good
by MrsLJ on 2019/04/27 16:20
App is easily five stars if they improved the quality over Bluetooth. I also do not like that the app defaults to not using Bluetooth because this means that any Bluetooth devices you have will be automatically disconnected when you open the app. The app also gets 4stars because it will get a song wrong around 5 to 10% of the time if you’re using it while on the road when there’s ambient driving noise. Unfortunately this is the only time I actually am using the app. To know what the song on the radio is.
Used to be great...
by ScrabbleNut on 2018/06/23 12:11
SoundHound used to be great. It would find any song, you were able to type in some lyrics and find the song you were looking g for. I bought a lot of music from songs i found here. But something has changed with this app. Today i was trying to find (once again) a song i remembered by Earth Wind and Fire. When i typed it in, i didn’t even get the artist. I got a handful of songs, most of which weren’t even sung by them. The album section had 2 of their albums and a bunch of karaoke albums. WTH! where are songs? Where are the dozens of albums they’ve made? What is going on? After using this app for years do i have go looking for a decent music app? I am not happy about this. At all.
Another Has Been...
by Oncfari on 2017/10/08 18:18
This used to be a great app — but no more. Now it takes me thru some random set of BS every time I try to ID a song. Half the time the song is over by the time I finally get back to the song search function. Also, it makes a lot more mistakes (some I think are intentional to sell other music) and often returns zero results, which was previously rare to non-existent. Another example of change for the sake of change killing the golden goose!
useless - hummung or whistling is not working
by Sesamme on 2019/10/21 09:57
I had a song stuck in my head (it still is) but could only remember the melody. SoundHound sounded like a solution, but alas - too good to be true - it couldn’t find anything by whistling or by humming. Then I tried to hum and whistle very famous songs like Yesterday, or Halleluya - it didn’t find them either! Sometimes it was showing some unrelated results in Chinese, but mostly - nothing. Then I tried to sing them with words, and finally - voila, it works! So - it’s almost useless, because if I know the words, I can find a song anyway... Also - in the free version, the ad is often obscuring the button, so I must stop and restart the search. Don’t understand the 5 star ratings...
Beyond Amazing
by Colecast1213 on 2019/07/07 00:13
Had an obscure soundtrack song stuck in my head and it was killing me that I couldn’t remember what movie it was from. Being a soundtrack, classical style song with no lyrics, there’s nothing I could Google to figure it out. I stumbled onto mention of this app, and that it could look up songs based on humming, so I thought, “what the hell.” I’m not even that good at humming, and first try, it nailed it (turned out to be “Arrival To Earth” from Transformers). I’m beyond impressed. So long Shazam!
What Happen
by LQROC on 2018/04/06 16:20
When this app first came out years ago it was awesome. It was able to find it starts songs that Shazam could not do ever sense and for the past year and in the updates in the search engine is not functional. App over Shazam but now it can’t at times pull the most recent songs or artists. The response time of the search engine is Eva slow. There is no doubt in comparing the two apps that Shazam has gotten an edge over this app. You guys know from experience that your app is not up to par with Shazam please make me a believer in next Suzanne wants the better search engine music app and I will go back to reading this a five star
Muhammad’s SoundHound review
by Afroblue of Yale on 2018/09/08 17:40
Sound hound finds 90% of the songs I seek to identify. But in new music genres it sometimes does not recognize, but this is a problem with all the music recognition services. This may not be an issue for most users. I am a musician, professional dancer and instructor, a DJ and an academic - so my needs are extensive. On the whole, as a sound hound user for many years, l recommend it. I do to all my students. The latest feature of tying it to playlist is wonderful. Thank You
Wonderful app
by AppAHollic24 on 2019/03/06 04:04
I absolutely love this incredible application. It has helped me out so much when out and about and I hear a song that I enjoy I just open up the app and click on the orange button and let it listen to the song and quickly it tells me the song title and the artist couldn’t ask for a more wonderful app that does identify songs quickly even if you’re not right next to where the song is coming from.
My go-to ‘what’s that song playing?’ app :D
by AnGee91 on 2018/09/29 06:50
My dad had this app on one of the earliest iPhone generations (before I had my own phone) & I made sure I downloaded this when I got a phone in my hands. I love it. I wish it was able to detect more multicultural songs as well, but it’s also shown me so many that it just overrides that comment, because I knows it’s developing more & more. A very cool thing: it saves the songs you’ve had it listen & you can go to that at anytime✨
Convenient as it is awesome
by Jewlz712 on 2018/03/23 02:47
Ever heard a song on the radio that you loved, but the DJ didn’t say the name or even who it was? Doesn’t that make you mad? Well will this app, all you have to do is pull it up and press the center a button, takes a few seconds and it tells you the song, artist, album, and even gives you links to buy the song. It also has a lyric scroll so you can sing along. There’s really nothing bad to say about it. I love it.
Happy, Happy, Happy!
by Stillbuggin on 2017/12/07 16:05
I guess one would think I was happy with Sound Hound! I've had a blast with this app over the years. Recently, I looked up a title and artist for my 90 year old ex-mother in law. To see the joy in her eyes as she was able to sing along, and and hear her comments made this app so worth it in my book. "I remember that song!" I've periodically had to look up lyrics, but I'm fine with that. I've always enjoyed Sound Hound and GLW, I'll continue in the future!
What used to be great is now uselesss...
by MisterEBox on 2017/12/23 23:05
Awful. Tried to identify ‘Red Right Hand’ by Iggy Pop & Jarvis Cocker. Took about ten tries and then when I try to play it, a little window opens with a picture of Iggy Pop, playing some instrumental elevator loop with a description of the actual song I want to hear but not the song itself. I don’t need a description, I’m quite capable of describing it myself thank you, I want to hear the song. Also- it’s not convenient to ‘talk’ out loud to an app unless you’re driving a car. When trying to improve the app, try leaving the elements that brought people to it in the first place alone. i.e.: Don’t try and fix what isn’t broken. Useless, what happened to this app?
Best sound fetching app ever!!
by Angelito123$ on 2018/03/26 04:03
Ever hear a song on the go or on the radio, and wonder who’s that jamming out!!! Well gurl! Don’t be stupid! Sound hound that song!!! Love the way it also maps out where it was used and what song that was. Honestly, I use it as my personal passport to mark my conquests around the world!!! Love the way it quickly and effortlessly it gives you the option to connect to your iTunes in so many ways! Just download it and check it out!
Can’t identify singing or humming well at all
by Hugusdamoos on 2019/04/26 15:12
I’m a musician so I can sing on key. I tried singing Steve Miller Band’s “Space Cowboy”, Duke Ellington’s “Take The A Train”, Jefferson Airplane’s “Lather”, and Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” The latter was the only tune SoundHound could recognize. The first few times I sang the songs without lyrics, just scatting or humming; the next few times I actually sang the lyrics. No results for any of them except “Moondance.” So the song you are trying to get this app to recognize had better be extremely obvious, in which case you probably already knew the name of the song to begin with! Pretty poor app for song identification using voice. Deleted.

by MYTSHRP~1 on 2019/05/31 03:56
I LOVE this app! I use SoundHound all the time! It’s especially great to have when I hear a song I like but don’t know who it is or name of the song. I pull up SoundHound and in no time I’ve got the name of the song and artist. I love that lyrics are provided (when available). I’ve bragged up SoundHound to all my friends and family and there are a few that knew a good thing when they hear it. Now they are sharing in the wonderful world of SoundHound! Thanks for a great app!!
Oh what app
by Nice2spice on 2019/03/22 21:08
Hi I just want to say how much I enjoy this app. It’s so nice to be able to see the lyrics, I stopped listening to the words along time ago. I’d listen to the rhythms, Sing the chorus part ,but that’s all I would know, never knowing exactly what the was about. Can’t say I haven’t blushed a few times, after I realized what the lyrics were. This app brings me back to some great memories and really helps to keep me up with current music. thank you so much for this app
Better with time
by Aj2100c on 2018/07/29 23:23
This app gets better with time. Now that it has undergone several versions, it runs faster. Another neat and fun feature is being able to open a map and see and hear what others are discovering. Of course, when you’re looking for a song, that gets shared too. And, I don’t mind sharing the tunes I find when I go out there. Being able to she’s that with the world is the beauty of this app.
Opening time.
by drummerboy 777 on 2018/10/23 12:15
I love Sound Hound! But I would give 5 stars of the app or the live tile in the side menu would open or react faster cause I lose a lot of time waiting on it to open. Sometimes I even miss the opportunity to get new music cause I'm having to wait for the app to open! Faster openings or "instant on, or more Mic access!" Abilities!!! Where maybe the second you touch the listening button, it Instantly starts recording but after the app finally opens....... It will realize what it just recorded and act appropriately at THAT point? Just a suggestion......? Maybe?
SoundHound review
by sejrec56 on 2017/12/14 16:17
My review is that SoundHound works incredibly well. When I think of all the years I’d hear a song and the DJ wouldn’t say who the artist was, now most of the time SoundHound answers that for me. But 25 percent of the time it can’t figure out what the song is or artist. How does SoundHound determine who the song or artist is? Anyways SoundHound have become indispensable for me. Being a musician myself I’m glad I can find out who it was I heard and even had a bio on the group, artist or writer! Thanks creators of sound hound!
Kinda Fun
by Arpy123 on 2018/07/11 04:25
I love a lot of different kinds of music and sooooo many times I love a song and know nothing about it. I can’t find it unless it had a distinctive lyric. But this identifies so much faster and up come the lyrics and the album cover so it is fun. I’ve added so many songs because I finally can find my favorites from movies and tv. Even works in a store with a soundtrack playing. I just now realized how much I use it and love it.
Bluetooth issue
by RUNNINGONMT on 2019/09/08 22:36
You’ve made a critical mistake with this version. Whenever I’m in My car listening to a song, then open SoundHound to identify the song do I can see the lyrics, SoundHound immediately connects to Bluetooth and then the song can no longer be heard. Have to then turn off my phone Bluetooth, which disconnects my phone speaker from my car, so i can’t talk on the phone without delinking my phone to me car. Such a Hassle!!! Not worth it, so I use Shazam.
I really like this app
by Loves_Lucy_ on 2018/09/09 19:42
So many times I have come across a song that I like and don’t know the name of. I always click on this app and it never fails to tell me the names of my favorite songs. Within about 20 seconds or so it gives me the name, the artist and the album name. I do wish the lyrics would pop up on all the songs. Most of the songs have lyrics that you can follow with, but there are some that don’t. Overall I love this app and will use it for songs to come.
Who would have thought...
by Greenchristian on 2019/10/28 05:26
This is an amazing app. If you love music, and have ever heard part of any music, and wished you knew what it is, this is definitely one app to get. I’ve used it in a car with radio on, or watching something on tv that sounds familiar, and even been in a grocery store and wondered what was the music playing overhead. Who would have ever thought something like this was possible. Just too amazing.
Used to be good
by Mystigo on 2020/06/26 04:37
Many years ago I shook the hand of one of the developers at a conference. This app was the best thing I had on my phone. You could launch it in seconds and near instantly start identifying music. It is 10 years later and I just rage deleted it. It takes 20+ seconds to launch, then the ads come up, then the listen button comes up. When you press it is says a bunch of stupid stuff, and eventually it says it couldn’t hear anything. Siri named the tune within 5 seconds of me asking it to. That’s all I wanted. This app has lost its way. In 10 years it has gotten worse with every release. It is time to part ways with it.
Works great but WHY NOTIFICATIONS??
by Kakkxnhsgaframkkk on 2020/02/20 23:02
Why does this app give me random notifications? It does what it should do (most of the time, has a hard time with identifying music over ambient noise like at a coffee shop but whatever same) but why do I need a pop up notification with random lyrics from a song I have never looked up and don’t want to know? I get that I can opt out of notifications or turn them off but why would you design this app to be purposefully annoying? So unnecessary
