Heardle Archive: How To Play Previous Games Unlimited

Love Heardle & want to play previous musical puzzles? Here's how to play past Heardle games from the archive on PC & Mobile (iOS, Android).

After Wordle’s explosive popularity, one of the spinoffs that appeared online was Heardle, which is a musical twist on the concept. In case you’ve just discovered this daily music intro/song guessing game and would love to play the older puzzles, here’s how to access the Heardle archive.

Heardle Archive to Play Previous Puzzles

Unlike Wordle, which had actual archive websites available to play the previous games, there’s nothing like that for Heardle. But, the classic “change the date and time” trick works, so let’s take a look at how to make it happen.

How to Play Old Heardle Games (Archive) on PC

Players need to change the Date and Time settings to access older games on PC as well as iOS/Android phones.

  • Go to the Start menu on your Windows PC and type Date.
  • This should take you to the Date & Time Settings. You can also search for Settings on the Start Menu > Go to Time & Language > Date & Time.
  • Now toggle off the option of Set Time Automatically.
  • Click on Set the Date and Time Manually and hit Change.
  • Switch the Date to a previous one. So if the date is 21 April 2022, make it 20 April 2022 and confirm this by clicking on Change.
  • Visit heardle.app (reload the page if it was already open).
  • By following these steps, you should be able to hear the intro to a different song.
  • Keep doing this and changing the dates to previous ones to listen to and guess older songs.
