Great Application!

I have had SoundHound for years. Started with the free version but quickly got the paid version. It was $4.99 and worth every penny. It may cost more nowadays, I think maybe $6.99 but it is easily worth $10. During the years I have used it, SoundHound has gotten better with updates and, it has never been buggy. I have used it to identify hundreds, perhaps thousands of songs. It has a live lyrics feature and you can access your music library from the app. I like the SoundHound playlist feature that creates a playlist on Apple Music and automatically adds songs identified by the app to the playlist. I can go on and on but I will only add that if you’re into music, at least try the free version. It limits the number of songs you can look up but you will see how well it works. I use it all the time to identify songs on the radio or on TV shows. If you get the paid version, and use it, you won be disappointed.

Falling short. I used to use this app all the time, when one day, I was streaming xm on my phone, heard a song I wanted to remember for later, I go to open the sound hound app and the music stops, ok, I go back to xm, hit play, go back to sound hound and the music stops again. It used to listen or scan what you were listening to and save it in your history.... and suddenly it stopped doing that.

Now, I try to scan a song I’m listening to in my house (my house WiFi is 400mps) and I’m told by I have bad connection... I snap, I do a speed test of my WiFi to get 390 reading.... this app has become garbage. And in the garbage it will go ✌️

I agree with Donald-t

The old gray mare just ain’t what she used to be.
This app used to deploy instantly and now even with new equipment it’s like waiting for a snail to cross the road.
A small snail and if your not sitting on top of a cell tower delivering LTE you are simply wasting your efforts by the time it deploys and stops telling you your not connected to the internet the song is gone. While using it in the wilds of the northwest where my carriers signal is still not the best it used to pull an I.D. Of something but no more I guess all developers think you have a cable connection in cell phone land and have started building for stay at home users. And the success rate has disappeared to next to nothing and it used to identify the most obscure music you could find. I have heard there are other music identification apps out there and I think I’m going to see what they are like. After many years of great music identified found and corralled with Soundhounds help I have reached the end of my patience to many backwards function losing updates and to many you are not connected to the internet messages I am gone now how do I take my history with me?
