How Do I Play Heardle?


The actual gameplay behind Heardle isn't too different to Wordle. Though because you're guessing based on audio, it does operate slightly differently - you'll need sound on, for one.

When booting up the Heardle website, you'll see a blank slate for up to six guesses, and a Play button. Hit that button and you'll hear the opening second of a popular song. You're then given the chance to guess based on that snippet, picking from the game's extensive musical database. With each wrong guess, you're given the opportunity to listen to a little bit more of the track to help you out.

Is Hurdle the Same as Heardle?

By all accounts, Hurdle and Heardle are the same thing. If you're looking for the Hurdle game or Hurdle song answer for today, you're actually looking for the Heardle song solution. The reason for the confusion likely boils down to pronunciation and regional dialects/accents mixing things up a little.

Like Worldle (the geography game) getting confused with Wordle (the word-guessing game that started this whole thing), the confusion regarding whether to pronounce it like "hear-dull" as opposed to "heard-ul" has people searching for one or the other. The correct spelling is Heardle, but the pronunciation is likely still up for debate.

Can I Play Previous Heardle Puzzles?

There is only one Heardle song every twenty-four hours. If one just isn't enough, though, there's a way to game the system and enjoy some more. All it takes is the tweaking of your device's calendar to make it think the date is different, thus resulting in the Heardle song originally released that day.

Once you've changed your system's date, you should be able to refresh the Heardle page and try another challenge. It's a handy way to look at past songs that may have slipped by, or that took place before Heardle went viral. You can even move the date forward, giving you a somewhat psychic-like reading of the next song.

And that's it for our Heardle song guide. Be sure to check back daily as we update our list with the brand-new song to uncover.
