Hurdle is perhaps the most famous inspiration behind Wordle, the word game that saw millions of players sign up every day for months after its release in late 2021.
The most significant event in Heardle’s history is his purchase of Spotify for an undisclosed amount in July 2022.
While Heardle remains free and the game itself remains unchanged, the acquisition has undergone several changes, including a move from SoundCloud as the player of choice to Spotify, which now allows players to listen to the full track after the game is completed.
This is partly why Spotify is interested in Hurdle. “We’re always looking for innovative and fun ways to expand the music search experience and help artists reach new fans,” said Jeremy Ehrlich, Global Head of Music at Spotify.
However, it was not a smooth transition: the game was only available in some countries immediately after acquisition (UK, US, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) and players reported disappearing streaks.
Wordle, for those who don’t know, went through something similar – resetting streaks for some players after it was bought by the New York Times.
As for the future of Heardle, Spotify teases that the game “and other interactive features” will “allow music lovers to connect more closely with artists and challenge friends – and have fun in the process.”
