Tips and tricks

The game will be more challenging if you are in a hurry. There are some tips and tricks to help you win the game easier. Here’s how: 

Listen to the intro carefully.

Each song in Heardle will be played from the beginning, so it's important to listen to the intro carefully. Based on that melody, you can guess what genre the song is, what instrument it is played with, or something related.

Play with Partners

Any task will be completed faster or better with cooperation. The same is true in Heartle. You may be stuck, but it's great to have someone's help. Your friend's amount of musical knowledge may double or even triple your strength in the game. Therefore, if you have a chance to ask your friends to play with you, don’t miss it.

Know the benefits of the skip button.

It is important to know that each time you guess wrong or skip Heardle, another piece of the song will be unlocked. This gives you more information about the song. Why don't you take advantage of it? Use the skip button if possible; you will have a longer part of the song and maybe even hear a part of the lyrics. Then, it will be much easier to find the correct song.

Listen to more music.

Nothing can beat your knowledge. Listening to more music expands your musical knowledge. Thus, your ability to find hidden songs in Heardle is also higher. Moreover, listening to music is also a great way to relax; you will become comfortable with it, and knowledge will be absorbed passively.


Practice is the key to success. Practice listening regularly; you will recognize the typical melody of the music genres as well as the voices of the artists. Your chances of winning the game also increase.
