Google Play Reviews

  1. 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.

  2. PeVa NisGina-avatar

    Used to be amazing, but it stopped working entirely. Would absolutely use again if it were fixed.

  3. A Google user-avatar

    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.

  4. Juukai-avatar

    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 :(

  5. Thess M.-avatar

    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.

  6. Nicq Cole-avatar

    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.

  7. Do'be Eeeval-avatar

    I thought it was just me until I read these other reviews. This app hasn't worked for me since April 2018. Used to be so great. Wish they would fix it.

  8. Ryant Takai-avatar

    Use to love this app until it stopped working. Got a new phone and tried to reinstall and nothing appears. So not giving but 1 ⭐

  9. HarleyKat Quinn-avatar

    HarleyKat Quinn


    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.

  10. Honter Minjares-avatar

    Honter Minjares


    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.

  11. Carlos Lopez-avatar

    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

  12. Chetan Sawhney-avatar

    It worked really well. However after Android 10,it stopped working completely

  13. ZeroYuri Vermillion X-avatar

    ZeroYuri Vermillion X


    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. Ana Paula-avatar

    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...

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Marco Liboy-avatar

    This app really is dead!!! I keep getting a message saying that "this service is unavailable in your country" country???!!! Where does google think I live??? the moon??? I think it's time to do some housecleaning and delete this thing...

  18. jayfire292 _-avatar

    It keeps saying "opps requests failed. retry?" Its been saying that for a few weeks now. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing works. Pls fix it

  19. JaMarcus T-avatar

    Google you really need to update this app because it won't work so one star for me unless you update it and I rate five stars again

  20. Peter Chatten-avatar

    On Galaxy Tab S2 all I get is the message "Oops, Request failed. Retry?" This app used to work now it is useless. Have reinstalled and cleared the cache to no avail.

  21. 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.

  22. Paul Lemonidis-avatar

    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.

  23. Mike Terratec-avatar

    Why is SoundSearch now "...not available in your country" anymore? It was working fine from the UK until recently. What a load of bollocks!

  24. Andrew Tremas-avatar

    Used to be a great, useful widget. But recently just states "oops, request failed. Try again?" every time. Not updated since 2013?

  25. Kasabugu-avatar

    Crashes, tried to find out why online but just read others had same problem. Seems Google doesnt support this app any more and cant be bothered to tell anyone!

  26. Lisa Boling-avatar

    i give 1 star cause i cant even use it. it keeps telling me oops request failed, retry?. also its not giving me a option to open app. if this gets fixed i would love to use it.

  27. Google User-avatar

    This used to be the best app for Identifying songs. It hasn't been updated in years, so it hasn't worked in years. Why?

  28. Avi N Ash-avatar

    Used to be 5/5 levels of greatness. Now? It doesn't work. The Google app just does it now, but this widget was great.

  29. Justin Cacy-avatar

    Worked great a few years ago until I lost my history and eventually the app itself stopped working as well. I'd love if they updated it and made it useable!

  30. Reubin Schafer-avatar

    I used to love this app but has not been working for almost 4 months and was hoping they would fix it but I guess not time to find another app

  31. William G-avatar

    broken, broken. Google app not updated for 6 years. broken on Android Pie and previous phone, yet Google says compatible. stopped working sometime 2017.

  32. A Google user-avatar

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

  33. A Google user-avatar

    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.

  34. Jennie Lynn-avatar

    Used to be the perfect app to search for songs that I couldn't remember the names of but now is is just a garbage app that doesn't work anymore..

  35. Richard V-avatar

    It's not working had it for a few years then last night I wanted to get a song the sec you press it it say oops blah blah blah I uninstalled it and reinstalled say damn thing damn it

  36. Christopher Mowell-avatar

    Christopher Mowell


    It used to be amazing. Its been error city and hasnt functioned right for months. So sad.

  37. don juan-avatar

    use ur heads geniuses not the ones they program you to use. why would anything be forcefully placed without ways to uninstall or erase yet theres no use except for the same inconvienient yet repetitious message. Its just another way to control...does anyone really believe we are in control of any of our devices? Who hacks who? Thought you knew...

  38. A Google user-avatar

    Google has created a new widget to replace this one. Go to your widgets and use the search and look for SOUND SEARCH. Unfortunately your old sound search history has been deleted for good. :(

  39. Kimmy McKimwich-avatar

    Kimmy McKimwich


    It used to be great until they stopped caring about it. It hasn't been updated since 2013 and no longer works on new models.

  40. Mark Griffiths-avatar

    This has stopped working. Keeps saying oops request failed retry? as soon as it is started.

  41. Boris #-avatar
