Garbage app 1/5
What an absolute piece of garbage and waste of space. How do you not recognize “immigrant song”. Its a pretty unique melody. Christ, what a useless app. Tried singing some tunes i didnt really know, then tried “blinded by the light” - still clueless. Musician of 15 years....its definitely not my pitch. What song does it recognize....mary had a little lamb?
Missidentifying too many songs lately. 2/5
I don’t know what’s going on, but the app is now misidentifying some songs. Even tried multiple attempts at the same song and it said it was two different songs.
What happen to this APP???? 1/5
Once a fine useable APP but Siri knows more music than this thing So disappointed in the multitude of failures.
Love the app 3/5
But I Wish it would hook up via Bluetooth! Tried several times but no luck!!
Voice and hum don’t work 3/5
By zhb, zlugbaii
Even when there’s no background sound at all when I hum it sing, it still doesn’t recognize the song. I would’ve put one star but at least it recognizes actual music.
You messed up the lyrics 1/5
The lyrics were much better before. It would follow the words perfect and you could tilt to horizontal for big easy to follow words. Also the dark background was much easier on the eyes. I used to use SoundHound just for the lyrics. Now just for a song I don’t know.
When I used it for the lyrics, it was easily 5 times more. Now I hardly use it. I wish I didn’t upgraded.
Please go back to the way you had the lyrics before.
Also, the entire setup is worse. Before you had choices of what platform you wanted to play the song including videos.
I just downloaded an app called Shazam. It is perfect. It is even better than the old Sound Hound.
I am editing this I originally write this a while ago. It took me 30 seconds to know Shazam is what I want. It has videos and the lyrics scroll perfect with a nice dark background. It just looks nicer and took me seconds to figure it out. I will test it out more and update it.
Don’t know how this app has 4.9 stars... 1/5
This app is useless, I was trying to find a song and I really did hum it very close to how it went and it still could not recognize it so I experimented. I sang a song that I knew every lyric and every tone to which should be an easy one for Sound Hound but it STILL couldn’t recognize the song. I then tried another extremely popular song that I knew and same thing, no results (after multiple tries I might add). Just get another app and don’t waste your time with this one.
Do not beg for stars 4/5
By Mike Richardson
Great app. Much preferred to Shazam which is a dumpster fire
The live lyrics need some work. Had to try 3 times before it was synced.
Half the time I’m using this app as a shortcut to pull up the lyrics of a song. It used to be great, would follow along with the song and highlight the line of lyrics as the song continued. And you used to be able to turn your phone sideways and the lyrics were larger print. The app no longer highlights the line of lyrics or allows you to turn the phone sideways for larger print. Overall disappointed with the updates
By Aninwa buachie
When i try it the first time in a song, it says it doesn’t hear anything, second time i try it it comes. It’s really annoying.
By MTNclimber 2014
Perfect and very responsive!
Recommend an ad free pro version.
I literally had this tune in my head for ever and obviously my friends had know idea what the song was as it’s like 10 years old but I hummed into my mic and holy cow it found the song. Absolutely amazing and ecstatic with the app, AMAZING!
Absolute love this app 5/5
I always wonder about songs I hear on the radio or an old one I used to love comes on, I use this app, it’s very quick and adds it to my iTunes automatically so I can go back to it. Best app ever for music lovers!
Keepin it OG 5/5
Easy to use, simply dope
When it’s right. 3/5
When it’s right it is great. Only right about half the time, at the most.
Mine doesn’t work at all 1/5
Somehow doesn’t work with my new phone!! It can find anything!! It worked with my old phone so I wonder why
Humming feature really works 5/5
Was able to identify a song that was stuck in my head for 4 weeks that so could only remember the instrumental refrain. Downloaded this and tried humming it.Took 2-3 times of no results. on the third it gave me a list and the top result was the song that was driving me crazy
STILL NEEDS WORK 1/5
I very simply hummed the tune from the Theme from Supergirl the 84 movie - TWICE - and I CAN SING. The app couldn’t find it. Guess all you focus on is pop music.
Search in the background 2/5
Why doesn’t work at background
Bluetooth is Broken! 2/5
Come on, guys - this app was awesome until you added the Bluetooth settings - now it connects and disconnects every time I try to play a new song or scan through my history. Why does the app need to mess with my speaker settings? Just use whatever I have set up for my other apps. This is the only app that doesn’t work smoothly when I’m using my headphones. Please fix this!
Doesn’t Work 1/5
By Mike the warrior
I’ve tried humming, singing, and playing the actual song into the microphone and nothing works. My microphone is not broken and I made sure the app was listening. Waste of time.
How I feel 5/5
100% of the time, I’m able to get the title of the song that I want.
Better than the rest 5/5
I've used sound hound for years. Haven't found anything that compares. Easy to use
I’ve used this app forever, and it’s always been great. Past month all it EVER says is “no music detected.” Yes, the mic is on. App is busted.
very good thanks ❤️❤️
Reverse system fail 3/5
I don’t know what has happened to the app in the last six months, but commonly I search for tunes off the radio while I’m driving. I never have a connection when I do this so the next time I hear a song it was common for me to play the sample. For the last six or eight months when I go to play the sample it says I do not have an Internet connection. That was never required previously. This is a real pain in The butt.
the best thing that happened to us singers in church we really love it thanks be to God 5/5
we simply love this App
breaks audio quality 1/5
By ios 5 was the best
if you listen the song on the same phone to external bluetooth speaker, when starting soundhound it breaks the audio quality.
There when I need it 5/5
This app is on the ball when I need to know the title/lyrics of the song I’m hearing.
Star penalty for lacking support 3/5
App will not rotate landscape mode, so propping up your iphone/ipad isnt even an option since it only supports portrait mode viewing the app. Very disaapointing! All apps should support both portrait and landscape rotation viewing. I’ll increase rating if/when landscape is supported, especially on ipad where the added space could be used as extra convenience access to features on same screen, that would otherwise require sub menu/screens to access
Great App 5/5
By Flipper king
I have been using for years
Sometimes broken 1/5
Whenever I hum it sometimes says that I’m talking over the music or just that I’m not finding any results
By person whos happy
Every time I play a song RIGHT INTO THE MICROPHONE it never works. And I tried making sure it wasn’t just my device, but nope, it was the app. Do guys just have older music? Because the music I try doesn’t work. Other than that, clever app! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Pretty good! 4/5
By HAWKEYE x306x
Does what it says, however my only complaint is that it’s super selective and won’t always save your history or your pending discoveries. I was looking forward to playing pack some “pending” songs to catch the lyrics but they were nowhere to be found. Yet some random clip form last month was saved... really annoying.
The best song finder PERIOD 5/5
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.
This app doesn’t really work 1/5
By Lucas Boyett
I have used this app to try and figure out what a song is. It has had clear access with no sound hinderances and it still can’t identify a song. As far as popular music, it’s good for that. But for the stuff I used it for, it didn’t work. Not satisfied.
Saved my life 5/5
By TACOS AND CHALUPAS
Well, um, lots of people know the feeling of not being able to find the name of a song- you only know some notes and maybe a few words. So I was going crazy over this one song THAT I COULDN'T FIND THE NAME OF.
Thank you SoundHound, for not making me go crazy. That Shazam app don’t even work
App Listens and gives Song Title and Artist 5/5
A great app recommended to me by my father. I like to press listen and get song titles during movie credits. Great App! Thanks Dad, Love Jason
Doesn’t work on iPhone XS iOS 13.3 1/5
By Princess poi
Very sad, all my fav songs are gone. Used to work great until. 9.3 update now it won’t even open on my iPhone . How do I recover my song history?
The great SoundHound has fallen. 1/5
Used to be great. Loved this app back in the day. It found all the songs all the time. Now it never picks up anything. There is never a close match. I tried it with Tom Petty’s Free Fallin with the speaker playing straight into my phone and it couldn’t get it. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted SoundHound.
By alyssa calback
I didn’t like it so much because every song is only like half of the song and when the song ends it gives u another song that u don’t want or it’s cuts your song and changes to another song
Can’t copy to paste in translation 1/5
Title says it all
Finds music titles with lyrics in a flash!
I used to love this app. But, lately I’ve found it just doesn’t measure up to past performance. In fact, I was just listening to the number 1 song of the year for Christian genre “Burn the Ships” by King and Country and it said there were no close matches. Very disappointed as this seems to be happening more and more
No option for connecting Spotify 2/5
Actually I was attracted by the slogan [can add to Spotify], however it doesn’t work. So disappointed!
Stopped working 1/5
The app does not listen to songs at all now. Not a phone problem. Siri is working just fine. Tested microphone on multiple platforms.
I loved this app before the updates. Now I just like it. It’s not as good as it ounce was. Not everything has to change. Maybe the developers thought it was too awesome.
Didn’t work 1/5
The song I found out was actually “You can call me Al” and I tried humming the EXACT tune of it, couldn’t find ONE SINGLE match. It can’t actually determine a song just from you humming, only on an off chance that maybe it can one time. That song is really popular and it literally couldn’t determine the EXACT tune of it that I was humming.
This app used to work. But now it can’t pick up songs playing straight into the speaker. Guess I’ll find songs on Snapchat now
