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

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.

I love this app and have used it for many years now. The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because the app doesn't have native Chromecast audio streaming. You can stream it to a tv, for whatever reason, but not to an actual speaker. You have to go through the Google Home app and mirror your device to your speaker to get that to work, which is a bit of a pain if your phone isn't "optimized" for screen mirroring. As soon as they can get native audio casting, I'll bump it up to 5 stars!

I've really enjoyed using the app, it's easy to download new sounds and has a wide variety. I've been using it for a while now. My one complaint is I've had it completely wipe out my sounds and mixes about 4 times now. It's really annoying, I create mixes I like and it will be fine for months, then all of a sudden I go in one night and it's all gone. No idea why this happens and I have to redo all the mixes. Edit: dropping a star because it deleted my stuff again. Emailed developer.
