Doesn’t work
Bad Irritation

Doesn’t find the finest songs wants to find the new songs it’s not understanding my humming

Great but…
Lollipop zippy

I think this app is great but there is only one issue… sometimes when I hum it doesn’t search the right one or it won’t stop searching until I close out of the app… Otherwise this is a great app I recommend?

really bad

out of all the times i used this app it has only once recognized the song i was humming. horrible app

Could not identify songs

In the last couple of years, it hasn’t been able to identify pretty much all the songs I wanted it to identify.


It just doesn’t catch the songs sometimes

This is the App!!
Katherine Rhee

There was this one song stuck in my head that I could only hum, no lyrics, and nobody could tell me what it was, driving me crazy. This App instantly found that song for me. How amazing! It was a song from 1993, a small one hit wonder rock band song. I really appreciate whoever made this App. What a genius algorithm you people worked on! Thumbs up!!

Been using this app since apps became a thing
Remove this from the app store

Been using this app since apps became a thing, had never had to sign up for an account, it’s keeps my search history; it’s SO easy to use (and it works). Ten plus years and counting?

Won’t translate

App gives me Japanese titles, which doesn’t help at all when I want the ENGLISH song name.

Chalino Sanchez

I love the fact that SoundHound actually understands the lyrics to Mexican Corridos! Top rated ??????

Never works

Don’t download I spent 15 minutes trying to find one song and never found it
