Move over Wordle, Twitter has a new game and it's all about the music

If you're anything like us, you've been agonising over the New York Times mind-bender for some weeks now. 

But has the free word game's reign come to an end now that a new daily activity for music lovers has started to take Twitter by storm?

Described as "a respectful homage to Wordle", Heardle comes with a musical twist."

How to play Heardle

The daily online game involves people attempting to guess what song is playing by simply hearing the intro. 

Like Wordle, the aim is to get the correct tune in as few guesses as possible.

"Each Heardle is randomly plucked from a list of the most-streamed songs in the past decade," the music game app explains on its website.

Heardle also added that "Much love (and all the relevant copyright) to all the artists featured."

The music game also records how many games you play, your wins and win rate as well as you current and highest streak.
