If you have more of an ear for music than an eye for words, Heardle might just be the game for you.

The game’s songs are taken from a list of the most-streamed songs in the past decade, so you’re likely to be familiar with the intros to most of the songs.


Heardle appears to have hit all the right notes on Twitter too, with people now sharing their Heardle score in the same way we’ve seen people share their Wordle results.

One Twitter user joked: “They wordlefied Name That Tune and I'm on board.”

Another quipped: “This is by far my favorite Wordle variant.”

Heardle is one of the many Wordle-inspired games we’ve seen pop up in recent weeks.

There’s Worldle for geography lovers, an NSFW version of Wordle called Lewdle, and for those who find Wordle too easy, there is Quordle.
