SoundHound - Music Discovery & Hands-Free Player app reviews

  • Changed your format 1/5

    By macioliver
    I have used you for years. You just changed your format. I don't like it !! I have deleted you. It's a shame
  • No type to search 1/5

    By Hahahahahahhhahhhaaa
    The app has never been able to pick up a song off the radio but I could type in the lyrics and get a return. Now the type to search option is gone as well as the app off of my phone.
  • SH8 flawed 3/5

    By Flying Monkees
    App was always pretty good at identifying songs (more so than Shazam), but current version often fails to allow saving tunes it could not identify, unlike the previous version; before, it always gave a button to do so. I used this feature constantly and was very disappointed to see it no longer there.
  • App 5/5

    By Captain adel
    So great
  • Sound hound 1/5

    By rsr63
    Was a great app, now just a money machine. The greed consumed the builders of this app, like so many others.
  • I LOVE SH!!! 5/5

    By Frigggg
    it is so awesome to capture songs I like and wonder who is that!! I wish this had been around my whole life!! TYTYTY soundHound!!
  • Awesome!! 5/5

    By Chinchillllz
    I heard a song in the background to one of the AGT video songs that only had the piano version with no vocals. So I whistled the melody of the song and almost immediately it brought up the song I was looking for.
  • BLEH 2/5

    By Hecubus114
    Ok so I wanted an app that could guess a song title when you sung it cuz I got a jam that I love but don't know the title and the first thing that came up was soundhound. they didn't guess my song, so I did the first thing that came to my mind: shake it off. What did they say? Something called bittersweet symphony. And they had Trouble by Taylor swift in the list was the weird thing.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Koala Smalls
    Can't pick anything up
  • Bring back text search! 1/5

    By atxrevolt
    Sometimes you're in a place where you can't talk. Losing the text search has been extremely annoying.
  • Wish I had it 20 years ago 5/5

    By %cowboy%
    Great works amazing
  • Generally unreliable 3/5

    By LSM1551
    Most of the time I try using this app it does not even detect a song. Nothing found? I use another app & it picks it up right away.
  • Genial 5/5

    By romelino.12
    Súper la app Felicitaciones
  • Love. It. 5/5

    By ShaysMom
    I'm rarely disappointed by content or functionality.
  • There was no close matches :) 1/5

    By karin_karim
    wont find my desired musics, it just finds the very known musics,
  • Still not working 1/5

    By PeppermintPig
    Apparently either something is wrong with MY microphone (which is unlikely since it works fine otherwise) or this app. Repeated says "no music was heard" anytime I try to search music from the radio, and won't pick up sound when I speak into the microphone. Hoped it was going to be fixed after last update, but it's still happening. App is rendered basically useless without this feature.
  • Another update... Still won't work with Bluetooth 1/5

    By JTinNLV
    Once again they do an update and it still won't work while listening to Bluetooth speakers. So annoying. Now it has the added bonus of crashing four out of five times accessing the app. They ruined this awesome app about five updates ago. I'm sure they will respond to this review that they are aware of the issue and will fix it in future updates - like they have four times before.
  • Lifesaver!!!! 5/5

    By Hunsuck-O-Rama
    Better than ever!
  • THE VERY BEST!!! 5/5

    By Phill McKrackin
    I love it!!! ❤️❤️❤️ I've tried ALL the other lyric apps and none even stand close to 🍖🍖🍖THE HOUND!!!🍖🍖🍖
  • Love it 5/5

    By Mizago
    Super fast. Always gets the song... access to lyrics are the best! Played with voice (like Siri inside the app) and it's cool.
  • Eh 3/5

    By Jkjjjjjjjyyyy
    Since the update it seems like any low volume songs or when there's a little background noise the app won't recognize song when it used to always get them basically no matter what.
  • My favorite app! 5/5

    By CookKid
    Great app!
  • No type in lyric search anymore 1/5

    By Shoechan
    Can't type in the lyrics anymore. They removed the lyric search.
  • Last version was better 3/5

    By David A. Castañeda
    I've been using SH for years and loved it, but the changes they made in the last update don't make it better and make doing some things (like editing your history) require more clicks/taps. They even removed some features. Additionally, I prefer the original force touch menu that was a simple list, instead of a list with a little widget below it. It was quicker to activate a search with the first version.
  • Ruined a good app, by making it a spy microphone 1/5

    By Olstykke
    I used to love this app. It had settings that allowed one to have it go straight to listening to catch that snippet of audio on the radio. With the update, it uses voice commands only. "Ok sound hound settings" . The buttons are disabled until it figures out you aren't talking. So you miss capturing that snippet of audio. Avoid this app , it no longer does it's purpose. As for why you need voice commands? The only explanation is the same as xbox1-- the microphone is on and spies on you. The app support in the App Store has also been disabled.
  • So bad 1/5

    By Prof. Dr Bozic
    This app is so bad it should be removed from App Store. Can't find a single song. Always misleading. Worst app ever.
  • Not as good as it used to be 2/5

    By Put this back in
    The best part of SoundHound for me was that I could look up lyrics to a song, it was the whole reason I got the app actually, but with the latest update that was removed and replaced with a voice function that just won't show any related results if there isn't something exact. Bring back the typing search function please this is a huge downgrade.
  • Bad Change 1/5

    By log^10
    The app can't find songs now and is useless. It's like they deleted most of their song database. There's a reason Shazam is under "essentials" on the App Store.
  • No search bar 1/5

    By pizza luvva
    I prefer the older version in which I could search by typing. I don't like the voice search option and I will not use it.
  • New update is trash 1/5

    By Kaitlin P.
    The whole reason I got this app in the first place was because I had a song stuck in my head. The majority of songs I want to remember the names of are not usually playing in the background. The new update got rid of a ton of functions such as lyric searches. It's drifted from a useful app to more entertainment to compete with Spotify and Apple Music. However, the new update did get rid of a ton of glitches and crashes.
  • Phishing alert 1/5

    By Grammagoose
    Twice while using this app I got a pop up stating that I had a virus on my Iphone. It is linked through Safari and is cured by deleting history. I deleted this app.
  • Can't find the music 1/5

    By No new version
    Had this app forever liked it much better then others, but now no matter what the settings are it does not recognize any music. Had to delete the app all together.
  • App keeps quitting and keeps staying open 2/5

    By NHL NBA
    Every once and a while when using the app it quits. Please fix the app so it won't keep quitting all the time. And now every once and a while when not using internet after I finish using the app and I close the app the app looks closed. And I also close the app in the background as well. Then the next time I go to use my iOS device weather with internet or with out internet I log into my iOS device and as soon as I log into my device I see the app pop up on the screen like I did not close the app. I then close the app again and I close it in the background again as well. This only happens every once and a while after I use the app but it's only one time after I use the app. And it does not happen if I have not used the app in a while. If you can look into this and if possible if you can fix it if it's a problem with the app that would be great.
  • not working 1/5

    By b3h1
    i installed it but it didnt work and says no conection.
  • Piss poor 1/5

    By Mike&Ike71
    Too fancy, won't actually do what it was originally supposed to do. Went downhill fast.
  • Much improved for iPhone 5/5

    By Truly Pink
    The auto-interface with Sootify is great! Noticing better, faster recognition too.
  • Great app but why the portrait mode 4/5

    By gadget_74
    I have had this app for a while now its in portrait mode on my Ipad so its sideways, why did it change? Otherwise it works pretty good
  • What y'all do to the app? 1/5

    By Ali boooomaye
    It's not finding any songs now??!!!! Anyway to go back to an older version?
  • Slower experience 2/5

    By DemiGuru
    You overcomplicated the search user experience. All I want is to be able to immediately search without the need to needlessly interact with the app. The various translation eye candy just slows the experience and is frustrating.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Motion1201
    I used to like this app, now you just cannot do anything on it The new up grade, when I try to search for lyrics, I had to join or connect my iTunes. I do not want to do that. I ended up putting the lyrics in google and finding the song. Perhaps you should have two versions. I see another person complained for the old version.
  • Good but.... 1/5

    By JCY71
    Good interface improvements, but what happen with the option to search by typing? There are many options you want to type like -you just listened to a song but it is far away from you (so it is not loud enough) -you are in too noisy environment where people are talking And many more...don't get rid of the TYPE IN feature pls
  • Nice update 1/5

    By Gasgrassorass
    Now there's no search
  • I am not happy with the new version. 1/5

    By LindsHockey
    I don't want to ask OK HOUND. I want to search the way I used to. How do I get back to that search screen? I am ticked off at this new Hound. I also don't want to sample 30 sec of a song. I want the whole song like I had before. What did you do with my APP?
  • My review 5/5

    By lil ance
    I really love this app
  • Was a favorite app... 2/5

    By Tracey Reagan
    So soundhound updated and now I can't type a search. My only option is to voice search? Can I go back to an earlier version where I can use the keyboard instead of voice????
  • Essential 5/5

    By Kell1z
    Gives you everything that you need when you just can't remember that song or you want to know the lyrics. Or buy the song. Simply essential.
  • Good Looking 5/5

    By VinceTG2
    The new version looks awesome, and it's still the fastest music recognition out there!
  • Doesn't work with Bluetooth headphones 4/5

    By Alvin900
    whenever I try to preview songs through the app, it plays them through the phone speakers instead of my bluetooth headphones.
  • The new update 2/5

    By College Student (Antonio)
  • Why?! 1/5

    By Watch Timmy
    Why would you take away the type in search bar?!? Going to have to start looking for a replacement app. Big fail on the update 🤦🏻‍♂️👎
