About this app

AS SEEN IN CONSUMER REPORTS! Find out why the world is sleeping better with White Noise Free. Features ambient sounds of the environment that will 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 free downloads from the White Noise Market App and website at https://whitenoisemarket.com/
• Full support for Android 7.0 (Nougat) Multi-Window
• Background audio support so you can use other apps while listening
• Record, loop, and share new sounds
• 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 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 you need for better sleep.

The mixing of sounds is great! The one downside is, about once or twice per week, right around 5:20a each time, the app will stop working (go silent) then start on its own. Sometimes a few times. It wakes me up and the only way to get it to work okay again is to force stop the app and restart it. Update - Gotten worse over time. Now even the white noise types oscillate in volume, even if those settings are turned off.

I Love this App... can't sleep without it. A couple of years ago I moved to a very quiet neighborhood... too Quiet; the silence was deafening! I tried a couple of other White Noise apps, but there was always something preventing me from using them for more than a couple of days. Then I found this one. Awesome features; one of which allows me to combine multiple sounds creating a Perfect Storm for me to sleep by; and a feature that turns my phone into a bed-side clock. Great App... a Must Have!

I used to love this app, would use it every single night! But now, it closes itself at least once a night, every night. I keep having to unlock my phone, open the app again from scratch, and wait for the sounds to start playing again. Looking at a bright phone screen in the middle of the night is not healthy, and can hinder the ability to return to sleep easily. Please fix this, or at least advise if this is just a feature of the free version.
