The explosive fame that he had Wordle and his subsequent move to the New York Times portfolioyou have now reached Heardle, a trivia app that was bought by Spotifyto guess songs with melodies and excerpts from songs.
In a blog post published Tuesday, Spotify described the game, which launched earlier this year amid the growing popularity of Wordle, as a “tool for music discovery.” The game, which gives players six chances each day to identify a different song based on short audio clips, will remain free to play and look the same, though users will be able to listen to the full song on Spotify at the end of the game.
Starting Tuesday, the game, under the ownership of Spotify, will be available in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and will remain available on your independent site.
“Heardle has proven to be a very fun way to connect millions of fans with songs they know and love and with new songs,” Jeremy Erlich, Spotify’s global head of music, said in a statement. “Since its debut, the game has quickly built a loyal following, and it aligns with our plans to deepen interactivity across the entire Spotify ecosystem.”
