Heardle is perhaps the most well-known inspiration of Wordle, the word game, that saw millions of players check in every day within months of its arrival in late 2021.
The most significant evolution in Heardle''s history is its purchase by Spotify for an unveiled sum in July 2022.
While Heardle remains free and the game itself has remained unchanged, there has been a few changes, including a shift from SoundCloud as its player of choice to Spotify, which now allows players to listen to the entire track once the game has concluded.
It''s this, in part, why Spotify was interested in Heardle. "We are always looking for innovative and engaging ways to furtheren music discovery and assist musicians reach new fans," said Spotify''s global head.
However, it hasn''t been a smooth transition, although the game is only available in certain countries immediately following the acquisiton (UK, US, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) and that players have reported streaks disappearing.
Wordle, for those who do not know, went through something similar - with streaks resetting for some players following its purchase by the New York Times.
Spotify has criticised the game''s "and other interactive experiences" to "allow music lovers to connect more intimately with artists and challenge friends, as well as have some fun in the process."
