Always knows the song 5/5
Never failed to find the song I’m searching gor
Doesn’t work for me 1/5
I have an old song stuck in my head from the 50’ or 60’s. It’s instrumental no lyrics. I only know a few bars. I have tried over and over doesn’t work.
I then tried songs I do know... didn’t work.
Unless you know lyrics it doesn’t work for me
Terrible - very disappointing 1/5
I used to love this app and used it to identify songs and artists, but no longer.
Now it causes my phone to dial out while it plays ads over and over, and it no longer even identifies songs and artists while it ties up my phone with outgoing calls.
SoundHound has become a cringeworthy spambot app. I hope it can be fixed, but there is no way that I can recommend it to anybody in its current state.
The Doctor 5/5
By Black Rob
By far, a great application that does what it advertises it can do!
Sadly misguided 2/5
This review will be short and sweet. What used to be one of my favorite apps, used on a daily basis, is now lost in here somewhere. Hear a song... What is that song? Soundhound it, there it is! Or was. The identity of the song, the artist, a preview to confirm it, the lyrics, a way to retain it all in a database, and email that list to myself or someone else. All great stuff. When it works.
No one should get hoarse from yelling at their phone because an app doesn’t work. But I have gotten p***ed off at SoundHound so many times lately. I don’t know if you guys have lost your way or what. Or maybe you’re subscribing to the Reid Hoffman school of software development and just figure it’s ok to be embarrassed by your product, perpetually. Half the time it doesn’t work at all. “No music was heard.” That’s funny; your competitor’s product heard it. Or the song is just not found. I’m not using this app to identify a Lady Gaga song. I’m using it to identify more esoteric stuff, electronic, classical, jazz, “international,” that I hear in the multiple places that I hear music. If you’re no longer interested in those types of music, that’s fine, but then this tool which I have relied on for years will no longer work for me.
And it’s so d*mned slow!! It takes the full listening cycle and then an equivalent “searching” time to find half the stuff I listen to. There’s not always going to be that time to catch it! Your competitor’s product pulls it up almost instantly. Big difference.
Your ace in the hole is me being able to manage and export my list. And preview everything to confirm. There, I can’t always do that. So you still have something. But you’ve got to work out these other issues!
Was Great Until Latest Update! 2/5
This was a great app until your last update. Now ads get in the way of the application and it takes much longer to search for music, when it actually does find the music on the first try! Typically you have to X out and then try again. Intrusive ads now make this app undesirable.
ADS playing while I’m catching a song?!?!? 1/5
I have used & loved this app for years. However, today I was trying to catch a song on a television show and an ADVERTISEMENT starts playing! LOUDLY!
I catch many songs in places like restaurants, concerts, office waiting rooms, CHURCH. NOT ANY MORE! I can’t even shut the ad up by turning off my volume!
I’m disgusted and am deleting this app.
Shazam is better 3/5
Shazam is better
Great App 5/5
Music comes through in great sound. Love how you also print the lyrics.
What Happened 1/5
When I downloaded the APP it showed me what to do.The reason I downloaded the APP was to find a song.So I tried to type in a lyric. And every time I typed in a lyric it said “Can’t find a mach”. So I tried with a different lyric the answer was “ Can’t find a mach”. I tried a lot of different songs. And the answer was the same.
The Best 5/5
One of the best Apps I have.
Use it all the time. Thank you for being so awesome. And I love the History button.
I love being able to identify music so I can go purchase them, thereby supporting musicians and the industry. Only in this way may we make sure that creativity continues. Thank you. Oh and I love being able to sing along with the lyric assistance. Thank the.
Fun Party Game 5/5
Try the “SoundHound Game: sing your song of choice into the app & see if the correct song is pulled up— if so, to the winner everyone else drinks; if not the loser drinks, then pass it on to the next round! Best enjoyed with friends :) a longtime fan
The new version 1/5
By An ESPN & NBC viewer
What the hell the new version doesn’t even work can’t even tap the button to listen change back please.. app doesn’t even work now
I had been trying to find an instrumental song for almost 2 years. I used this app and found It instantly!!!❤️
Not as good as it once was 2/5
This app used to be great, but it appears that those days are long gone now. Too many times this app has crashed on me or won’t recognize a song and is agonizingly slow and is constantly freezing up on me. Unless they fix it or update it soon, I’ll have to find another app.
Crashes after SoundHounding a song 4/5
Have been using the app for a few years, and have generally enjoyed the improvements.
One main issue I have is after I SoundHound a song, the app crashes before I can catch any of the song’s info. Thankfully the info is usually saved, but I can always count on having to restart the app after I use it.
Great app! 5/5
By Angry&screwed over
It's legit. I use it often to identify music from radios, tv and movies. Highly recommend.
Good and bad 2/5
By house flipper 101
Its started glitching like crazy songs won’t play right
Doesn’t work well either 2/5
This app doesn’t work that great either. Can’t they fix Shazam so it works 100% again? Or make an app that actually does its job?!? What a waste.
By U.S Navy Nathan James
It’s not working or picking up any songs
Love SoundHound but.. 5/5
I love this app and have used it countless times to identify a tune , but when I click on the app, it loads up too slow to catch a song sometimes. Other than that it’s the best !
Crashes, errors 2/5
Love the app, but the latest update is buggy! My app will suddenly close while I’m using it, and several times I get the message ‘No music was heard’ even though I’m in a tight space with loud music. Sometimes I have to repeatedly listen to the same song to get any results!
Glitchy, doesn’t recognize any songs 1/5
By Nb head
I’ve used this app a million times in the past with great results. Today I tried singing a song I know some of the lyrics to and all of the melody but can’t find. It says there are no close matches, even though off the top of my head I know this song sounds musically similar to a lot of songs, so that surprised me. Then just to see what was up I hummed the fully melody to Womanizer by Britney Spears. It said there were no close matches. I did it again, same thing. What...? Then I sang womanizer with the lyrics and then it recognized it. I hummed the full melody, again said there were no matches, Something is wrong with this, it never needed perfect lyrics before to recognize a popular melody, or even an obscure melody. I can see that other reviewers are saying something is broken too. Can you guys please fix this? Why would this app that recognized a very short fragment of a hummed Beethoven symphony two years ago, suddenly not recognize the hummed fully melody of womanizer? Something is clearly wrong here.
Spot on 5/5
This app can pick up music in the noisiest places. Restaurants, outdoor events, etc. I love it when I hear a song I dig and then get it identified. So much great music out there that’s not the top 40 stuff we hear so much I want to barf and sound hound somehow finds the name of the song and artist
Might need update 5/5
Been using SoundCloud for years and I love it. It’s recently been auto playing ads *with sound* , which of course negates any music it’s going to hear in the background. I don’t mind the video ads, I understand the need to make money. Buttttt...kill the auto sound playing, it can’t even hear the songs.
Am still giving it five stars since I use it all the time and will assume they’ll fix this issue, am just trying to bring this to their attention.
Great App! 5/5
By Go Tyme
Extremely handy for those “What the hell is the name of that song ?” moments.
On point 5/5
When I need to know who is singing the song I’m listening to, SoundHound comes in clutch. Keep doing your thing guys! 👍🏻
Awesome App 5/5
By Hopeless Romanticly Twisted
Great for identifying songs you don’t know and it keeps a history of what you have searched for.
The best for song capture 5/5
This works better than Shazam, so accurate.
Does it need internet?
Lost is juice! 3/5
At 1st this app was really good. However now it doesn't know hardly any songs. Why is that?
I'm really disappointed!
Has gotten terrible over the years...
Love Soundhound.. 5/5
By Dream Patch
I use this nearly every day!! Great way to find and learn of new or old songs and artists. This is a "must have" app if you kove music as I do. ❤🎶❤🎶❤🎶
Sound Hound LOVE!! 5/5
I use soundhound ALL the time and highly recommend it!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!
For many years this has been my go-to fav app for song lyrics and song discovery, but the latest update took away song follow/lyrics....no longer want or need.
Formerly great, now unusable. 2/5
By 5-String Mark
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember, when everyone was using a competitor app I preferred this.
However, over the last few weeks ads are appearing and I can no longer use the app. I have found no song information, it is unusable. I gave it /stars in the hope this will be fixed and restored to its former greatness.
Video Ads Killed the Music Lookup App 2/5
By Twice II
How in the world is this going to be able to hear a song if it’s playing and ad with sound? I have zero problem with the app selling ad space so we can use the app for free, but not when it effectively disabled the app.
It’s also crashing 2/3rds of the time since the update to automatically add songs to Spotify.
I sang very famous songs hummed and sang but sorry this could not be found all the comments are fake
On da $$$$$ 5/5
By got serenity
Great app if you are into the music.
Awesome App 5/5
Greatest app ever
How in heck the developers did it, programmed this HUGE library of recognition--or whatever it would be called to techies--is so amazing! I mean, everything I've thrown at it, it's recognized.
High praise & accolades to what should be an award-winning app!
Thank you for the ability to use it without a subscription, for I don't do subscriptions. People, especially younger people, don't see just how much of their lifetime's assets for their later years are being irretrievably given away for immediate gratification on this and that. The subscription economy is great wealth for the subscribed-to company at too high a price for those average joes
Using live lyrics until the screen locks 1/5
Why doesn’t the app stay lit when it’s in the foreground? Live lyrics are pretty useless if you have to go unlock the phone and then restart the song up to get the pointer in the right place.
How do I get technical support? All I get is a bunch of dead and websites and the final option is to send an email or Twitter. Is that really how you do it?
Really good 4/5
App is easily five stars if they improved the quality over Bluetooth. I also do not like that the app defaults to not using Bluetooth because this means that any Bluetooth devices you have will be automatically disconnected when you open the app. The app also gets 4stars because it will get a song wrong around 5 to 10% of the time if you’re using it while on the road when there’s ambient driving noise. Unfortunately this is the only time I actually am using the app. To know what the song on the radio is.
Video Ads? 1/5
Really? Was an OK app until the loud ads started. Bye!
Can’t identify singing or humming well at all 2/5
I’m a musician so I can sing on key. I tried singing Steve Miller Band’s “Space Cowboy”, Duke Ellington’s “Take The A Train”, Jefferson Airplane’s “Lather”, and Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” The latter was the only tune SoundHound could recognize. The first few times I sang the songs without lyrics, just scatting or humming; the next few times I actually sang the lyrics. No results for any of them except “Moondance.” So the song you are trying to get this app to recognize had better be extremely obvious, in which case you probably already knew the name of the song to begin with! Pretty poor app for song identification using voice. Deleted.
Love it! 5/5
Whenever I hear a song on the TV or radio that I don’t know, all I have to do is turn on the app.
Can’t hear the music 3/5
Comes up no music heard

Whoever thought of this was a genius! Thank you. 🥳🎊🎉
