About this app

Recommended as a miracle for better sleep! Find out why the world is sleeping better with White Noise. Features ambient sounds of the environment to help you relax during the day and sleep great at night.

Do you have trouble going to sleep? Are you traveling on a plane and need a quick power nap? Does your newborn baby wake up in the middle of the night? There are numerous benefits to using White Noise:

• Helps you sleep by blocking distractions
• Relaxes and reduces stress
• Pacifies fussy and crying babies
• Increases focus while enhancing privacy
• Soothes headaches and migraines
• Masks tinnitus (ringing of the ears)

Even when you’re asleep, your brain is constantly scanning and listening for sounds. If it’s too quiet, unwanted noises such as faucet drips or police sirens can interrupt your sleep. White Noise generates sounds over a wide range of frequencies, masking those noise interruptions, so you can not only fall asleep, but stay asleep.


40 sounds are included as part of the application (no downloading required unless you want more) including all the color noises (brown, white, pink, etc), mechanical sounds like a bedroom fan or air conditioner, light to heavy rains, rushing water sounds, beach and ocean waves, and so much more. For the entire list of sounds please visit our website. No streaming is required for playback.

• 40+ perfectly looped sounds with additional free sounds from the White Noise Market at https://whitenoisemarket.com/
• Record and loop new sounds with total ease
• Background audio support so you can use other apps while listening
• App Widget and Chromecast TV support for audio control and playback. (Note: Chromecast audio devices require using the Google Home app)
• Create new soundscapes by mixing multiple noises together with support for adjusting volume, balance, and pitch of each individual sound in the mix.
• Full screen digital clock with multiple colors and brightness controls makes it the perfect companion for any nightstand
• Advanced alarm and timer system that slowly fades audio in and out so you awake naturally feeling more refreshed
• On-screen media player and volume controls with swipe gesture support for navigating sound collection
• Star favorite sounds and mixes in the sound catalog for quick access using the Favorite view
• Designed to work on all Android-based phones and tablets
• Advanced Settings let you prevent interruptions such as notifications, tweak buffer size for optimal playback, adjust sound volume, balance, pitch, custom alarm snooze times, and more. All the pro tools and settings you need for better sleep.
• No Advertising

This app is worth every single penny! I have been using it nightly for years now and have only one constructive comment. It would neat if the total time listened could be backed up/transferred. I enjoy seeing "X Days" listened but every time I upgrade my phone I lose the total time which wouldn't be bad if it didn't take years to build.

I've been using the app for years, but lately it's been acting weird. For some reason the app minimized itself and stopped making noise. If I bring it back up, the noise automatically starts again. It's been doing this every night for the last month. What's going on? Update: I think the issue was with my phone. There was an apparent issue with the wireless charging pad making the phone too hot. I've switched to a charging cable and the problem went away.

Thanks for letting us know about the heat issue with wireless charging. That's a new one! Glad White Noise is working again :)

I love this app. I use it literally every night with a little Bluetooth speaker. I especially like that I can create mixes. I like to layer rain sounds with something like Huge Waterfall for the bassy sound. I find that if I use only one sound, my brain will start to find patterns in it when it repeats, and that prevents me from sleeping. But with layered sounds, since they don't have the same duration, they rarely overlap each other in the same way, so my brain never finds any patterns.
