Spotify acquires popular music trivia game Heardle
Bang Showbiz - Gaming
Music lovers are in uproar after playing today's Heardle game due to a glitch not allowing them to select the correct answer.
Heardle is a daily music game that asks players to guess what song is playing based on the first few seconds. Like other Wordle games, Heardle allows players to share their statistics and track how well they've done over the course of their time playing.
Though for today's song (September 22), many were able to identify the song as Nirvana's 1991 song "Come as You Are," however when they entered this answer, players were told they were incorrect.
After inputting the song five times, players were informed the song was Nirvana's "Come as You Are," but the remastered version which sounds pretty identical to the original and that was not available as an option for players to choose, meaning many may have lost their streak.
So safe to say they are pretty annoyed with the game and expressed this anger on Twitter at Spotify.
\u201cOkay sorry to spoil it for anyone scrolling, but todays #heardle is utter bullshit. There was no option for a \u201cremastered\u201d version to select. Should have got it first try and it said no!?! Tried other songs and then tried the same song again and still no!?!\u201d
\u201c#heardle 210 - I knew the song from the first note, but strangely "Come As You Are" by Nirvana wasn't the correct answer. How stupid of me, it was the "remastered" version which sounds exactly the same... (although this wasn't even an option available to select)\u201d
\u201cHey @Spotify your #heardle is broken! Got it in 1 second but you said it was wrong as it was a different version of the song but didn\u2019t have that as an option!\u201d

\u201c#Heardle has now messed with two of the worst groups to mess with: Nirvana fans and people who say they\u2019re Nirvana fans but only know two songs. \nI am part of the latter, and I am not at all happy.\u201d
However, it appears that Spotify has fixed the issue which now allows players to select the remastered version as an option as people have been sharing that they correctly guessed the song with one second.
\u201cJust an FYI that official #Heardle has been fixed. Obvs doesn't help those that have already played but props to @Spotify for jumping on the error.\u201d
