music identification quiz Heardle originally rose to prominence earlier this year, closely following the similarly called word guessing game Wordle, and now Spotify, the industry leader in music streaming, has acquired the former game. That is based on recent reports following a Spotify statement.
The specifics of the buyout have not yet been disclosed and might never be. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering that Heardle’s creators were initially nameless. However, there are a few more changes that result from the ownership change.
IS HEARDLE WHAT? AND WHAT DOES SPOTIFY’S BUYOUT MEAN FOR IT? As of March 15, Heardle had received over 1.75 million views, making it a fairly well-liked game. That’s also not at all surprising.

With each incorrect response or missed opportunity, the snippets get longer. Higher marks are awarded for accurate guesses in fewer attempts than the six that are offered.
The source library will be the largest modification in this music guessing game. Prior to Spotify purchasing Heardle, SoundCloud was used to remove songs. The clips are currently taken straight from Spotify.
There might also be further adjustments in the works. Spotify specifically discloses a shift to its fundamental goals. The game was originally only a game, but with the support of Spotify, it might become a music finding tool. Its more than 420 million active users each month might potentially increase the number of listens for musicians.

The US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are the only countries that apply to this.
