“We couldn’t find that one” without a “save” option
by bilambilam on 2021/10/17 17:19
When there’s no internet connection, there’s an option to save the search. When a sound can’t be found, there is no save option. Please fix that. Give me the option to save regardless. I’m almost certain that used to be an option. Please don’t make me turn to Shazam. I really don’t want to. I’m very comfortable here. Also, could you please make your playback for saved searches better? Here’s a tip: Snapchat has the voice note feature in their chat. Listen to voice notes there vs. the playback on SoundHound saved searches. If there’s a way to make it sound clearer and sharper, I’d appreciate it. Thank you.
Doesn’t work at all
by ByAle1 on 2021/10/16 17:11
I tested it with songs that say the name of the song and it did not work at all it asks if I’m humming when I speak clearly it’s very frustrating and does not work at all 😭😡🤬🤯
Best app finding music!!!
by Spideronski on 2021/10/16 01:50
SoundHound was the only application that helps me to find a song, excellent my favorite now!!
Can find songs but not play them
by Lennardusprime on 2021/10/15 03:06
The app advertises features such as playing the full song in-app but is plagued by an error message that says check wifi or cellular connection. This happens regardless of a strong and reliable internet connection.

SoundHound is a quick and reliable search music engine. Professionals and novices alike enjoy finding the needed information on a song by simply tapping! SoundHound listens and in seconds gives you the Title of the song and additional references too! I love it!
Quit working
by flyboysgu on 2021/10/09 19:11
It used to be my go-to, but it no longer works. It fails to recognize anything anymore. Tested multiple songs with Soundhound and Shazam. Shazam got all of them, Soundhound said it couldn’t find any of them.
just straight up doesn’t work
by penisboy man on 2021/10/08 15:58
yep
Keep Shazam
by Jboxer5 on 2021/10/08 02:51
Have been using the app for over 5 years and have liked it mostly… It gets really tiring and frustrating to always open SoundHound Hoping it will tag the song I am hearing.. More often now I need to try with soundhound, not get a match, then open Shazam and Instantly find a match. Not worth potentially losing the song, stick with Shazam 👍
Worse with every Update
by ROC-889 on 2021/10/08 00:34
It was excellent two or three years ago. Now it often will not identify the easiest most common tunes.
Made Less Intuitive
by phonique on 2021/10/07 02:44
The previous iteration at least had visual indication that the voice function was working, as it indicated that it is recording your voice when attempting to find a song. The current version no longer has any obvious visual cues that it is recording your voice! Deleted the app as there are better options!
Ineffective
by DaWoofee on 2021/10/05 20:36
Humming feature is practically useless, and if you are going to use it for song recognition, just use Shazam.
Doesn’t work
by rbleck on 2021/09/26 13:32
I tried multiple songs and it just doesn’t work. It showed me a bunch of random songs that I don’t even know
literally how is this five stars

you thought nothing is worse than shazam? wrong. atleast shazam can find a few songs, this hasn't found any.
Garbage
by hwoarang77 on 2021/09/20 00:20
This app is doodoo. Every song I try to find using this app comes up empty. Take a page from Shazam. At least they find most of the songs I look for.
Needs improvement
by Willangbufspi on 2021/09/19 16:21
I can’t play 80% of the songs, as they become unavailable within a couple weeks, for some reason. Why not just use the songs from the official videos on YouTube, which NEVER get taken down? It’s bizarrw

I’ve had this app for years but slowly stopped using it because it would never recognize songs no matter how clear it was.
It never finds any songs now
by Golight Girl on 2021/09/07 19:53
Update: I’m done. I’ve not been about to find songs past 5 times. Deleted it. Old review: Had this for years. Use all the time. Paid for. Recently it can't find any songs. Or glitches and pops up the song after I try to close it after trying to search three times. Very disappointing.
works
by chemgirl🧪 on 2021/09/01 02:33
Someone was having a party outside my dorm, so i put on this and found the song. It doesn't work for singing, maybe I'm just a bad singer lol

Going downhill

This used to be very good at identifying songs but in the last couple months it’s become absolutely terrible. Switch to Shazam. It’s MUCH better.
5 years
by Masatet on 2021/08/16 02:59
I have been searching for one song for 5 years and I would type in fly fly fly in google search but still never find the song. And today I just saw a random fact saying this was an app where you could hum and find the song. I wasn’t expecting too much after 5 years but I got the app and I hummed, rather badly, and the app found the song I have been searching for for 5 years. Thank you so much. You guys made an amazing app!! Thank you soooo much.
Used to be good

I love IDing cool tracks wherever I go
Doesn’t remember versions
by Areebob on 2021/08/02 16:17
Hope you don’t have any interest in remixes or alternate versions of songs, because SoundHound will tell you the name with the remix version RIGHT when you let it hear it, but it absolutely won’t tell you what it is later.
Great stuff

Settles a lot of arguments before they turn into fistfights.
Getting Bad
by cachappmania on 2021/07/22 13:26

Quick recognition in difficult spots
Every single review is fake. App doesn’t work!!
by Jimmy Ching Ching on 2021/07/17 17:24
I was trying to find this song i had heard and I know the words and melody and everything so i tried humming it. Nothing worked so i tried singing it. That didn’t work so i started singing the most generic song ever, “This girl is on fire”. But still no response. Tried singing songs I know every single word to and still nothing. Do not even waste time reading the fale reviews this app does not work!
Doesn’t work as well as in the past.

Most reviews here are older. App never recognizes a song. Finally deleted the app today.

Simply not as good as google
by AnonymityIx on 2021/07/03 16:29
The new google music search has a significantly larger catalogue of music. I’d say the last 8/10 songs I tried searching first on SoundHound and couldn’t find came up immediately on google. You need to increase your catalogue of music. Frustrating trying 3 times to find a song before it ends only for it to be unsuccessful
Once Great
by JDob on 2021/07/02 22:41
Was great once but now when you open it while playing music over bluetooth, the app kills the bluetooth connection and music starts playing through the phone speaker instead. Kill the app, bluetooth speaker immediately reconnects. Re-open the app, bluetooth shuts off again. Had this problems for weeks. Tried to get support via "Get support" link in app but the link literally does nothing. Similarly, "App support" link in the iOS app store goes to a 404 page. Anybody home, Soundhound?
Longtime user of this app
by ursula.s on 2021/06/29 05:19
However now, it's filled with obnoxious ads and no way to pay to remove the ads. Otherwise it works great when you need to find the name and performer of a song you are listening to.
Love it
by cmblevi on 2021/06/26 16:47
Love this app. It works great. Almost always finds the song. It can even overcome a surprising amount of background noise. And I really like the lyrics feature too.
My Go To Music App
by IHATEULTRAVIOLET on 2021/06/25 17:04

More issues.
by ShadiwFightFan on 2021/06/23 17:55
Forget what I complained about before, this app still has problems. Including a recent appearing one where when I go to open an artists page the app freezes for about a second and then crashes. It’s pisses me off because it could be your favorite artist and sometimes you have to be able to open up their page to add some of their songs you like. Please fix this it’s really annoying and I’m bout tired of it already, no offense.
But report
by clrichey on 2021/06/19 02:53

Add A Good Option
by i'M Oops! :) on 2021/06/11 21:50
Please Add Auto Find Music! Like Shazam When You Hold Button Find Music Is Going To Automatic Find Music In Background ! With This We Can Go To Any Apps In Phone And Find Music When Played ! Like Instagram Or Youtube ! So Please Add Thissssss Thankssss
Doesn’t let you do karaoke at all
by ulee BM on 2021/06/09 00:24
Ok so This app when you search something it brings you to like Spotify or like anything like that and so whenever that happens or like when you tap on it and it just says add to playlist and so it doesn’t give you any karaoke but it is good for stuff like if you want to add a song to like say your Spotify playlist it’s just they don’t have it on Spotify you can find it on here it’s just I’m not like a robot or anything I’m not like some other people so yeah yeah.

Amazing- one suggestion
by Coolio2274 on 2021/06/03 00:43
Okay, this app is awesome. I’d even say it’s like a free version of Spotify. Although I have one small suggestion: whenever I want to pause and unpause a song it takes me multiple tries until I give up and reload the song. It takes a long time to process the tap. I hope you could possibly look into that bc it gets a bit annoying- thank you!!

I’ve used this app for several years in many different places.I always liked it. It would find this song and information about the artist.But in the last year even searching for songs that I know because I want the lyrics this thing can’t find them. Completely useless. I took it off my phone today. Goodbye sound hound.
iPhone 12pro & SoundHound, not good
by juannike3 on 2021/05/26 03:15
I'm sad to say, is no longer good. Whenever, you are listening to your music and want to get the lyrics while playing the song on Spotify using a Bluetooth device, the Soundhound app takes over, kills the audio on the Bluetooth and plays it only on the phone. After google it, it seems that this happens only on IPhones since 2017. Yet nothing is been done about it. I Never had that issue with my Galaxy Note. One more thing to hate about the IPhone Junk.
Shazam is definitely much better
by Bareteddii on 2021/05/25 00:55
Shazam doesn’t force ads on you plus it has found every song I was looking for. Plus, Shazam is free! All the time it’s free.
It has never recognized a song for me
by unhappy borrower on 2021/05/24 00:48
I‘m shocked to see all the five star ratings. I’ve had this app for a couple years and it has literally never found any song that I have sung or hummed! How do you the rest of you get it to work?
IDK what happened with this app
by mmcgui12.thefandomgames on 2021/05/23 01:11
It’s only recognized one song since the most recent set of updates. Every other time I wanted to see what a song is in a commercial or on the radio, it just gives me the “cannot recognize this song” message once it’s done listening.

1 Issue ONLY
by MysteryZ360 on 2021/05/16 15:30
Overall It’s fabulous!! However It used to be perfect, but NOW I have figured out that the ADS, which are displaying on the bottom of screen, are somehow distracting the hearing process, like even high trend famous musics will remain undetected or they hardly will! I’m pretty much sure it’s not due to my hardware issue; because I can see when ads showing up, the screen goes freezing, therefore there are no beats radius around soundhound Item in the middle while we’re starting to record! Is there anything I can do get rid of it? because I couldn’t find any removing subscription payment feature in app neither. Thank You 👌🏻

I was looking for days for a song I heard on Instagram. I searched it up in all the apps and pages that I could, until this one pop up in my recommendations. I didn’t thought it will work because I tried some of the best apps out there, but as soon as I played the song the app instantly find it out!! THANK YOU SO MUCH❤️ Excuse my misspellings, I’m not a native speaker😅

❤️❤️❤️❤️ 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

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.
Love sound hound / but recent glitch
by EpicEnigma on 2020/11/20 21:56
Let me begin by saying: I LOVE SOUND HOUND. (I would never use that “other” app—ya know, the one who says old what’s his name’s ⚡️SHAname.) >>> that said, in the current version, basically since around the release of ios 14, (though before I installed ios14...)... maybe a little before then too, there’s this glitch that happens repeatedly: every 2-3 listens/searches, when you tap the “done listening” button, SH begins to search—and then, for no good reason at all, throws itself out of search mode and back into the “still listening” mode ... which then, without fail, ends fruitlessly (in any number of error messages... “still humming?” “no internet connection” ... maybe “no music heard” I can’t remember. Or else, the search just ends, unceremoniously returning you to the app’s main page ... as if the whole last search never happened.) Anyone else? Or am I THE ONLY ONE?? 🥳
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.
Useless
by Sharedsky on 2021/01/28 06:12
Song is stuck in my head and no matter what I did in this app, it couldn't find it. I bummed it, I sag it, and I typed in its lyrics. Feel free to check for me. "Don't stop the beat. Don't stop the beat. Don't stop the beat. Don't stop the beat" is what I typed in, sang, and hummed. It's a fairly straight forward tune too. I even changed up the words incase I got any of them wrong. I changed all of them except "beat" because I know that is definitely the 4th word. I chose everything that rhymed and since that didn't work, I tried out words that were somewhat similar. I am putting in more than my fair share of work in and this app just wastes it all. Also, the app was poorly designed. Navigating it and accepting things and pressing buttons is a mess. Some buttons say "done" and the notice won't go away when you press it, it goes away when you press somewhere else on the the screen. It sends you to web pages with certain button presses for no reason too. 1 star is generous.

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.
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. 🤷‍♀️
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
Great until recently
by Zillanxio on 2021/04/03 00:50
I have used this app literally for years. It was one of the first apps I downloaded when I first got a smart phone, and I used it all the time. It always gave me accurate results when I wanted to identify a song. More recently however, the app has become increasingly unreliable. I will try to identify a song and the app will claim that it can’t find an internet connection, or it will return some completely unrelated song as a search result, or it will just straight-up not work. It’s extremely disappointing. After so many years of using SoundHound, today I took note of all the songs I’d discovered in my history and uninstalled the app. I’m sad that I can’t rely on this program anymore... but I would rather use a program that works more than 10% of the time.
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.
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.
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?!
1 Issue ONLY
by MysteryZ360 on 2021/05/16 15:30
Overall It’s fabulous!! However It used to be perfect, but NOW I have figured out that the ADS, which are displaying on the bottom of screen, are somehow distracting the hearing process, like even high trend famous musics will remain undetected or they hardly will! I’m pretty much sure it’s not due to my hardware issue; because I can see when ads showing up, the screen goes freezing, therefore there are no beats radius around soundhound Item in the middle while we’re starting to record! Is there anything I can do get rid of it? because I couldn’t find any removing subscription payment feature in app neither. Thank You 👌🏻
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!
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.
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.
Unreliable
by FridayTheAlien on 2020/12/27 09:51
I get melodies, choruses, and sometimes random lyrics stuck in my head and need to find them. I’ve had almost zero success at finding songs that way. Tonight was the real deal breaker for me. I could remember the melody for this one part of Bubble Pop Electric. I was humming it correctly, I tried both higher and lower pitch. I tried singing it. I started to remember the lyrics, though at the moment I wasn’t sure it was the correct lyrics. I sang them, and it was actually the correct lyrics, but SoundHound still could not get even close. Eventually I found the song, but it wasn’t through SoundHound. I’m officially done since this app has been more frustrating than helpful most of the times I’ve used it.
I’m not happy.
by Lilchefdavis on 2020/10/09 04:05
This app is great and all, but... I just downloaded it on a BRAND NEW iPhone 11, and it won’t create or add tracks to the “SoundHound History” playlist like it was clearly designed to do. It hasn’t created that playlist, it just won’t. I’ve tried several times, and I’ve been troubleshooting since. Everything is enabled and allowed in my settings app, I signed up for a SoundHound account, I even tried creating the “SoundHound History” playlist myself with no signs of success. There are NO forums out there to help with this issue, which is surprising considering SoundHound has released numerous videos with Q&A. All I wanted was to learn the names of songs I like, and add them to a designated playlist. Can someone please help me, so that I can make this review into a much more positive one?
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.
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.
5 years
by Masatet on 2021/08/16 02:59
I have been searching for one song for 5 years and I would type in fly fly fly in google search but still never find the song. And today I just saw a random fact saying this was an app where you could hum and find the song. I wasn’t expecting too much after 5 years but I got the app and I hummed, rather badly, and the app found the song I have been searching for for 5 years. Thank you so much. You guys made an amazing app!! Thank you soooo much.
It’s Confusing Some Songs.
by Colonel Asha on 2020/12/24 14:34
I tried to use the app to see whether it would read Paramore’s “That’s What You Get,” and five times in a row it told me the song was “Ich brauche den Tango” by Dirk Busch. Dunno when that changed. 🤣 I hadn’t touched the app in months and updated it today, then thought I’d test the app again. At least it read Blink182’s song properly after that, so perhaps that Paramore and German song mix-up was just that one in a million chance. I can definitely say it reads other foreign songs properly though, because it gets Korean and Japanese songs right. xD
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.
Great but used to be better
by Count cyber on 2021/02/13 17:53
Love SoundHound! But before the apparent changes, the library of songs seemed to be deeper and identifying the songs was way faster. Plus they always would bring up the lyrics. And they used to sync with music award shows like the Grammies so you could look up the new groups as they performed. Wasn’t able to do that on the last awards show I watched. Drat! Doesn’t happen now. Definitely get the app, it’s great. But I miss the old days before they “improved” it.
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...
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
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!

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!!
What used to be great is now uselesss...

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.
7 years worth of excellent song recognition
by Jonahjohnson on 2020/09/26 14:06
My first IDd song on my history was in 2013. I love this App, and the fact it’s carried my history across at least a dozen devices. I’ve never paid for the infinity, but somehow have always had unlimited IDs and I didn’t even realize it. I’m not gladly paying for the premium service to support this company and what they’ve done, and for the service I’ve had for years and years with excellent results

“We couldn’t find that one” without a “save” option
by bilambilam on 2021/10/17 17:19
When there’s no internet connection, there’s an option to save the search. When a sound can’t be found, there is no save option. Please fix that. Give me the option to save regardless. I’m almost certain that used to be an option. Please don’t make me turn to Shazam. I really don’t want to. I’m very comfortable here. Also, could you please make your playback for saved searches better? Here’s a tip: Snapchat has the voice note feature in their chat. Listen to voice notes there vs. the playback on SoundHound saved searches. If there’s a way to make it sound clearer and sharper, I’d appreciate it. Thank you.
Doesn’t work at all
by ByAle1 on 2021/10/16 17:11
I tested it with songs that say the name of the song and it did not work at all it asks if I’m humming when I speak clearly it’s very frustrating and does not work at all 😭😡🤬🤯
Best app finding music!!!
by Spideronski on 2021/10/16 01:50
SoundHound was the only application that helps me to find a song, excellent my favorite now!!
Can find songs but not play them
by Lennardusprime on 2021/10/15 03:06
The app advertises features such as playing the full song in-app but is plagued by an error message that says check wifi or cellular connection. This happens regardless of a strong and reliable internet connection.
Help

used to be able to get the words to a song cannot do that now.
Reviewer: Edward Charles
by #Driver no. 1 on 2021/10/10 05:41
SoundHound is a quick and reliable search music engine. Professionals and novices alike enjoy finding the needed information on a song by simply tapping! SoundHound listens and in seconds gives you the Title of the song and additional references too! I love it!
Quit working
by flyboysgu on 2021/10/09 19:11
It used to be my go-to, but it no longer works. It fails to recognize anything anymore. Tested multiple songs with Soundhound and Shazam. Shazam got all of them, Soundhound said it couldn’t find any of them.
just straight up doesn’t work
by penisboy man on 2021/10/08 15:58
yep
Keep Shazam
by Jboxer5 on 2021/10/08 02:51
Have been using the app for over 5 years and have liked it mostly… It gets really tiring and frustrating to always open SoundHound Hoping it will tag the song I am hearing.. More often now I need to try with soundhound, not get a match, then open Shazam and Instantly find a match. Not worth potentially losing the song, stick with Shazam 👍
Worse with every Update
by ROC-889 on 2021/10/08 00:34
It was excellent two or three years ago. Now it often will not identify the easiest most common tunes.
Made Less Intuitive
by phonique on 2021/10/07 02:44
The previous iteration at least had visual indication that the voice function was working, as it indicated that it is recording your voice when attempting to find a song. The current version no longer has any obvious visual cues that it is recording your voice! Deleted the app as there are better options!
Ineffective
by DaWoofee on 2021/10/05 20:36
Humming feature is practically useless, and if you are going to use it for song recognition, just use Shazam.
Doesn’t work
by rbleck on 2021/09/26 13:32
I tried multiple songs and it just doesn’t work. It showed me a bunch of random songs that I don’t even know
literally how is this five stars
by nutonu on 2021/09/23 08:04
you thought nothing is worse than shazam? wrong. atleast shazam can find a few songs, this hasn't found any.
Garbage
by hwoarang77 on 2021/09/20 00:20
This app is doodoo. Every song I try to find using this app comes up empty. Take a page from Shazam. At least they find most of the songs I look for.
Needs improvement
by Willangbufspi on 2021/09/19 16:21
I can’t play 80% of the songs, as they become unavailable within a couple weeks, for some reason. Why not just use the songs from the official videos on YouTube, which NEVER get taken down? It’s bizarrw

I’ve had this app for years but slowly stopped using it because it would never recognize songs no matter how clear it was.
It never finds any songs now
by Golight Girl on 2021/09/07 19:53
Update: I’m done. I’ve not been about to find songs past 5 times. Deleted it. Old review: Had this for years. Use all the time. Paid for. Recently it can't find any songs. Or glitches and pops up the song after I try to close it after trying to search three times. Very disappointing.
works
by chemgirl🧪 on 2021/09/01 02:33
Someone was having a party outside my dorm, so i put on this and found the song. It doesn't work for singing, maybe I'm just a bad singer lol

Going downhill
by misccrl on 2021/08/16 04:25
This used to be very good at identifying songs but in the last couple months it’s become absolutely terrible. Switch to Shazam. It’s MUCH better.
5 years
by Masatet on 2021/08/16 02:59
I have been searching for one song for 5 years and I would type in fly fly fly in google search but still never find the song. And today I just saw a random fact saying this was an app where you could hum and find the song. I wasn’t expecting too much after 5 years but I got the app and I hummed, rather badly, and the app found the song I have been searching for for 5 years. Thank you so much. You guys made an amazing app!! Thank you soooo much.
Used to be good

Really cool

I love IDing cool tracks wherever I go
Doesn’t remember versions
by Areebob on 2021/08/02 16:17
Hope you don’t have any interest in remixes or alternate versions of songs, because SoundHound will tell you the name with the remix version RIGHT when you let it hear it, but it absolutely won’t tell you what it is later.
Great stuff
by MickPG on 2021/07/30 01:30
Settles a lot of arguments before they turn into fistfights.
Getting Bad
by cachappmania on 2021/07/22 13:26
Lately Siri has done a by far better and faster job. No SoundHound, I am not humming. I’m not even singing.

Quick recognition in difficult spots
Every single review is fake. App doesn’t work!!
by Jimmy Ching Ching on 2021/07/17 17:24
I was trying to find this song i had heard and I know the words and melody and everything so i tried humming it. Nothing worked so i tried singing it. That didn’t work so i started singing the most generic song ever, “This girl is on fire”. But still no response. Tried singing songs I know every single word to and still nothing. Do not even waste time reading the fale reviews this app does not work!
Doesn’t work as well as in the past.
by won't send with one star on 2021/07/14 02:07
Most reviews here are older. App never recognizes a song. Finally deleted the app today.

Simply not as good as google
by AnonymityIx on 2021/07/03 16:29
The new google music search has a significantly larger catalogue of music. I’d say the last 8/10 songs I tried searching first on SoundHound and couldn’t find came up immediately on google. You need to increase your catalogue of music. Frustrating trying 3 times to find a song before it ends only for it to be unsuccessful
Once Great
by JDob on 2021/07/02 22:41
Was great once but now when you open it while playing music over bluetooth, the app kills the bluetooth connection and music starts playing through the phone speaker instead. Kill the app, bluetooth speaker immediately reconnects. Re-open the app, bluetooth shuts off again. Had this problems for weeks. Tried to get support via "Get support" link in app but the link literally does nothing. Similarly, "App support" link in the iOS app store goes to a 404 page. Anybody home, Soundhound?
Longtime user of this app
by ursula.s on 2021/06/29 05:19
However now, it's filled with obnoxious ads and no way to pay to remove the ads. Otherwise it works great when you need to find the name and performer of a song you are listening to.
Love it
by cmblevi on 2021/06/26 16:47
Love this app. It works great. Almost always finds the song. It can even overcome a surprising amount of background noise. And I really like the lyrics feature too.
My Go To Music App
by IHATEULTRAVIOLET on 2021/06/25 17:04
Whenever I hear a song and need to identify it, Sound Hound is my go to App!
More issues.
by ShadiwFightFan on 2021/06/23 17:55
Forget what I complained about before, this app still has problems. Including a recent appearing one where when I go to open an artists page the app freezes for about a second and then crashes. It’s pisses me off because it could be your favorite artist and sometimes you have to be able to open up their page to add some of their songs you like. Please fix this it’s really annoying and I’m bout tired of it already, no offense.
But report
by clrichey on 2021/06/19 02:53
The song history really takes forever to respond because it never finishes loading.
Add A Good Option
by i'M Oops! :) on 2021/06/11 21:50
Please Add Auto Find Music! Like Shazam When You Hold Button Find Music Is Going To Automatic Find Music In Background ! With This We Can Go To Any Apps In Phone And Find Music When Played ! Like Instagram Or Youtube ! So Please Add Thissssss Thankssss
Doesn’t let you do karaoke at all
by ulee BM on 2021/06/09 00:24
Ok so This app when you search something it brings you to like Spotify or like anything like that and so whenever that happens or like when you tap on it and it just says add to playlist and so it doesn’t give you any karaoke but it is good for stuff like if you want to add a song to like say your Spotify playlist it’s just they don’t have it on Spotify you can find it on here it’s just I’m not like a robot or anything I’m not like some other people so yeah yeah.
Can’t search for the simplest songs

I used SoundHound for years without any problem whatsoever. Yesterday 06/04/21, the app started crashing every time I try to access the History. I’d uninstalled and reinstalled, reset my iPhone, etc, all to no avail. I would give it zero stars now if I could.

The last 5 songs I have tried to identify came up with nothing. Uninstalling.
Amazing- one suggestion
by Coolio2274 on 2021/06/03 00:43
Okay, this app is awesome. I’d even say it’s like a free version of Spotify. Although I have one small suggestion: whenever I want to pause and unpause a song it takes me multiple tries until I give up and reload the song. It takes a long time to process the tap. I hope you could possibly look into that bc it gets a bit annoying- thank you!!

I’ve used this app for several years in many different places.I always liked it. It would find this song and information about the artist.But in the last year even searching for songs that I know because I want the lyrics this thing can’t find them. Completely useless. I took it off my phone today. Goodbye sound hound.
iPhone 12pro & SoundHound, not good
by juannike3 on 2021/05/26 03:15
I'm sad to say, is no longer good. Whenever, you are listening to your music and want to get the lyrics while playing the song on Spotify using a Bluetooth device, the Soundhound app takes over, kills the audio on the Bluetooth and plays it only on the phone. After google it, it seems that this happens only on IPhones since 2017. Yet nothing is been done about it. I Never had that issue with my Galaxy Note. One more thing to hate about the IPhone Junk.
Shazam is definitely much better
by Bareteddii on 2021/05/25 00:55
Shazam doesn’t force ads on you plus it has found every song I was looking for. Plus, Shazam is free! All the time it’s free.
It has never recognized a song for me
by unhappy borrower on 2021/05/24 00:48
I‘m shocked to see all the five star ratings. I’ve had this app for a couple years and it has literally never found any song that I have sung or hummed! How do you the rest of you get it to work?
IDK what happened with this app
by mmcgui12.thefandomgames on 2021/05/23 01:11
It’s only recognized one song since the most recent set of updates. Every other time I wanted to see what a song is in a commercial or on the radio, it just gives me the “cannot recognize this song” message once it’s done listening.
Great app

1 Issue ONLY
by MysteryZ360 on 2021/05/16 15:30
Overall It’s fabulous!! However It used to be perfect, but NOW I have figured out that the ADS, which are displaying on the bottom of screen, are somehow distracting the hearing process, like even high trend famous musics will remain undetected or they hardly will! I’m pretty much sure it’s not due to my hardware issue; because I can see when ads showing up, the screen goes freezing, therefore there are no beats radius around soundhound Item in the middle while we’re starting to record! Is there anything I can do get rid of it? because I couldn’t find any removing subscription payment feature in app neither. Thank You 👌🏻
No longer works

Love SoundHound

I love SoundHound, it’s a great app and definitely works better than Shazam. But lately I’ve been disappointed because it won’t automatically add my searches to my Apple Music playlist. ☹️

SoundHound fail
by Blancosr on 2021/04/30 16:42
SoundHound would be great if it would tell me the song title or artist. But 1 in 20 is not very good numbers. Sorry dudes.
THANK YOUU!!
by Anetts:) on 2021/04/30 01:46
I was looking for days for a song I heard on Instagram. I searched it up in all the apps and pages that I could, until this one pop up in my recommendations. I didn’t thought it will work because I tried some of the best apps out there, but as soon as I played the song the app instantly find it out!! THANK YOU SO MUCH❤️ Excuse my misspellings, I’m not a native speaker😅

❤️❤️❤️❤️ 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.
Love sound hound / but recent glitch
by EpicEnigma on 2020/11/20 21:56
Let me begin by saying: I LOVE SOUND HOUND. (I would never use that “other” app—ya know, the one who says old what’s his name’s ⚡️SHAname.) >>> that said, in the current version, basically since around the release of ios 14, (though before I installed ios14...)... maybe a little before then too, there’s this glitch that happens repeatedly: every 2-3 listens/searches, when you tap the “done listening” button, SH begins to search—and then, for no good reason at all, throws itself out of search mode and back into the “still listening” mode ... which then, without fail, ends fruitlessly (in any number of error messages... “still humming?” “no internet connection” ... maybe “no music heard” I can’t remember. Or else, the search just ends, unceremoniously returning you to the app’s main page ... as if the whole last search never happened.) Anyone else? Or am I THE ONLY ONE?? 🥳
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.
Useless
by Sharedsky on 2021/01/28 06:12
Song is stuck in my head and no matter what I did in this app, it couldn't find it. I bummed it, I sag it, and I typed in its lyrics. Feel free to check for me. "Don't stop the beat. Don't stop the beat. Don't stop the beat. Don't stop the beat" is what I typed in, sang, and hummed. It's a fairly straight forward tune too. I even changed up the words incase I got any of them wrong. I changed all of them except "beat" because I know that is definitely the 4th word. I chose everything that rhymed and since that didn't work, I tried out words that were somewhat similar. I am putting in more than my fair share of work in and this app just wastes it all. Also, the app was poorly designed. Navigating it and accepting things and pressing buttons is a mess. Some buttons say "done" and the notice won't go away when you press it, it goes away when you press somewhere else on the the screen. It sends you to web pages with certain button presses for no reason too. 1 star is generous.

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.
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. 🤷‍♀️
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
Great until recently
by Zillanxio on 2021/04/03 00:50
I have used this app literally for years. It was one of the first apps I downloaded when I first got a smart phone, and I used it all the time. It always gave me accurate results when I wanted to identify a song. More recently however, the app has become increasingly unreliable. I will try to identify a song and the app will claim that it can’t find an internet connection, or it will return some completely unrelated song as a search result, or it will just straight-up not work. It’s extremely disappointing. After so many years of using SoundHound, today I took note of all the songs I’d discovered in my history and uninstalled the app. I’m sad that I can’t rely on this program anymore... but I would rather use a program that works more than 10% of the time.
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.
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.
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?!

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!
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.
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.
Unreliable
by FridayTheAlien on 2020/12/27 09:51
I get melodies, choruses, and sometimes random lyrics stuck in my head and need to find them. I’ve had almost zero success at finding songs that way. Tonight was the real deal breaker for me. I could remember the melody for this one part of Bubble Pop Electric. I was humming it correctly, I tried both higher and lower pitch. I tried singing it. I started to remember the lyrics, though at the moment I wasn’t sure it was the correct lyrics. I sang them, and it was actually the correct lyrics, but SoundHound still could not get even close. Eventually I found the song, but it wasn’t through SoundHound. I’m officially done since this app has been more frustrating than helpful most of the times I’ve used it.
I’m not happy.
by Lilchefdavis on 2020/10/09 04:05
This app is great and all, but... I just downloaded it on a BRAND NEW iPhone 11, and it won’t create or add tracks to the “SoundHound History” playlist like it was clearly designed to do. It hasn’t created that playlist, it just won’t. I’ve tried several times, and I’ve been troubleshooting since. Everything is enabled and allowed in my settings app, I signed up for a SoundHound account, I even tried creating the “SoundHound History” playlist myself with no signs of success. There are NO forums out there to help with this issue, which is surprising considering SoundHound has released numerous videos with Q&A. All I wanted was to learn the names of songs I like, and add them to a designated playlist. Can someone please help me, so that I can make this review into a much more positive one?
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.
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.
5 years
by Masatet on 2021/08/16 02:59
I have been searching for one song for 5 years and I would type in fly fly fly in google search but still never find the song. And today I just saw a random fact saying this was an app where you could hum and find the song. I wasn’t expecting too much after 5 years but I got the app and I hummed, rather badly, and the app found the song I have been searching for for 5 years. Thank you so much. You guys made an amazing app!! Thank you soooo much.
It’s Confusing Some Songs.
by Colonel Asha on 2020/12/24 14:34
I tried to use the app to see whether it would read Paramore’s “That’s What You Get,” and five times in a row it told me the song was “Ich brauche den Tango” by Dirk Busch. Dunno when that changed. 🤣 I hadn’t touched the app in months and updated it today, then thought I’d test the app again. At least it read Blink182’s song properly after that, so perhaps that Paramore and German song mix-up was just that one in a million chance. I can definitely say it reads other foreign songs properly though, because it gets Korean and Japanese songs right. xD
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.
Great but used to be better
by Count cyber on 2021/02/13 17:53
Love SoundHound! But before the apparent changes, the library of songs seemed to be deeper and identifying the songs was way faster. Plus they always would bring up the lyrics. And they used to sync with music award shows like the Grammies so you could look up the new groups as they performed. Wasn’t able to do that on the last awards show I watched. Drat! Doesn’t happen now. Definitely get the app, it’s great. But I miss the old days before they “improved” it.
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...
Really good

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.
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.
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
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!
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!
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!

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!!
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.
7 years worth of excellent song recognition
by Jonahjohnson on 2020/09/26 14:06
My first IDd song on my history was in 2013. I love this App, and the fact it’s carried my history across at least a dozen devices. I’ve never paid for the infinity, but somehow have always had unlimited IDs and I didn’t even realize it. I’m not gladly paying for the premium service to support this company and what they’ve done, and for the service I’ve had for years and years with excellent results
