How to play Heardle
Daily online gaming involves people trying to guess which song is playing by just hearing the intro.
Like Wordle, the goal is to get the melody right with as few guesses as possible.
Spotify recently acquired Heardle, telling fans it has a “new font” but “sounds just as good”.
The musical game also records the number of games you play, your winnings and win rate as well as your current and highest streak.
You can even click on the song and add it directly to your Spotify playlist if you like what you hear.
If you’re just starting the music trend or slowing down your streak, here are the songs you’ve been missing lately.
