The deal comes as Spotify pushes toward becoming a more interactive app, incorporating live-streaming and video, in order to get a broader audience and revenue.
Players must figure out the answer of that day in as few tries as possible. Snippets of the song are given as clues to the player.
Players are given six attempts, the same amount of attempts as in Wordle, to guess the Heardle song of the day. Each song clipping gets progressively longer to try and give the player more to work with.
Spotify claims that the game has “millions” of users on its website, but has not provided any more details or specifics.
The newly acquired Spotify game will remain as a standalone feature on its website, and it will still be available for free. The main difference is that users will now be able to listen to the full.
The game is currently available in the U.S., U.K., Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Jeremy Erlich, Global Head of Music at Spotify said: “We are always looking for innovative and playful ways to enhance music discovery and help artists reach new fans.
“Heardle has proven to be a really fun way to connect millions of fans with songs they know and love and with new songs . . . and a way to compete with their friends as to who has the best musical knowledge. Since its debut, the game has quickly built a loyal following, and it aligns with our plans to deepen interactivity across the Spotify ecosystem.”
