This used to work great. Now it has about a 30% success rate, and the lyrics scrolling is awful. It will be correct, and then just go and change itself. Pulls up obscure singles and compilation albums for songs instead of the main album it's on, usually meaning no lyrics at all when it does that.

I hate to say it but after years of preferring SoundHound over other apps, one of their biggest competitors finally has won me over due to two critical differences; 1. SH struggles to identify new songs, the app I switched to was able to correctly identify a song from America's Got Talent the night the show aired with just one try, and 2. SH has no support for Android wear so I have to use the phone, which still often doesn't recognize music from tv shows and movies

Disappointed. This app used to be my go-to app to identify music. Originally, it was the best app and could detect faint music through a noisy restaurant. Now, it can barely identify a song in a quiet environment (the songs in question were released for more than six months). I hope the developers can fix the app like it used to be 10 years ago. Android 12, Moto Edge+ 5G.
