    Used to work great on my Galaxy S6 when I got a S7 though every time I tap the widget to search a song it freezes up and I have to delete the widget and put it back on my home screen and then my song will be there. It does work it's just kind of a pain please fix it. *Update* Every thing works as expected now. Increased rating to 4 stars.

    I use to use this app to purchase music from play store. I would build up a list of recent searches then periodically use the list to purchase from google play store. The entigration to the play store was nice. Now i use shazam but it wants to use apple music only. Contemplating migrating because of this. Why would they stop a revenue maker. Doesnt make since.

    This was a great app when I first got it. I don't know if it's the app or the widget that stopped working but now I hit the icon so it'll start listening to guess the song & immediately it says, "oops request failed, retry"!!! It's pretty frustrating. If I would've did a review when I first got this app it would've been 5 stars, not 3. But now it 3 & that's pushing it.

    I'm giving G-Sound Search 2 stars because I loved this app for many years. Unfortunately, it doesn't work anymore and hasn't for quite a few months. I've tried uninstalling but I always get the same disappointing message: "Oops, request failed. Retry?" Hopefully an update in the future will get it working again. Until then, I will mourn in request failed misery :(

    NO NEED FOR THIS SEPARATE APP GOOGLE HAS BAKED INTO SEAECH! There are different ways to use in search. One way is while the song imyou are trying to identify is playing, you can tap the mic in search and wait a sec then a blue not will appear, tap it and Google will listen and then identify the song. Another way is while the song is playing you just "wake" up Google depending on how you got it set up, say "OK GOOGLE " then say, "What song is this" and it will give results.

    sound search is voice search which is actually Google. when I installed it it never said sound search it came up as voice search. it took me awhile to figure it out. Anyways I uninstalled it because you can just use Google and it will do the same thing, it will identify the songs if you just press the blue dot on the lower right hand side.

    I used to use this app all the time find out what song I was listening to but about a year ago it stopped working for me. it would always offline try again later. I loved this app and I wish they would fix it so I could user it again. if they can fix this api would give it 5 stars.

    was really great until it started having "failure, retry?" message for everything for almost a year now. not sure why it stopped but it really sucks not being able to use the widget to get some info

  9. Honter Minjares-avatar

    Gave it 4 stars because I can no longer use it since it is for old models only. It be great if it could be updated. It is actually slightly better that Shazam, well used to be since it can no longer be used.

    It was my favourite until it stopped working for about a year now (since 2018). What happened? So many users posting and no reply, msybe if we say "Hi Google" we will get a reply about why the app isn't working...

  11. Kevin Hay-avatar

    "Oops, request failed. Retry?" is all that it does. It used to work just fine. Checked settings, uninstalled, reinstalled and the same thing happens.

    The app was great BEFORE the update,now it doesn't even let me scan for songs,as soon as I start scanning it immediately kicks me out,in short "WHAT THE HELL???!!!!!!!"...

  14. David A. Martinez-avatar

    David A. Martinez


    Hasn't worked properly in ages. It's basically powered by what comes built into the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3, so there's no reason why Google couldn't update this to work on newer versions of Android again.

  15. Karl K-avatar

    This used to be my go-to app for identifying audio. Sadly, it appears to now be totally broken. "oops, request failed," it says.

  16. Paul Lemonidis-avatar

    Paul Lemonidis


    Doesn't work any more and Google obviously don't care. What a shame. Would be more honest to remove it and say we don't support it any more because you effectively don.t! It is just false advertising that sets a false expectation.

  17. Nick Radloff-avatar

    This app will randomly stop working and nothing that you try will get it to work again. I just had this happen. Evidently, other people have not had it working since 2018.

    Does not work on Android 9. Was a great app for older Android versions. Should probably not be marked as compatible for newer devices.

    It quit working sometime in 2018, on my Galaxy Nexus running Android Jellybean. I suspect Google turned down some backend service that was powering this app.
