It's pretty simple to play Heardle Decades, especially because all formats of Heardle Decades are played the same way. You start by clicking on the play button at the bottom of the screen, in which you'll get a short snippet of a song. Try to listen as best and figure out which song you're hearing.

If you have an idea of which song to guess, type it in the box below the play button. Provided the track you're thinking of does not pop up, it means it is not in the index of possible songs. You can also hit Skip if you don't know what to guess, which will take you to the next song portion.

Attempt to find the right answer before you run out of snippets to listen to. When you finish, you'll have the option to share your score with friends. They can click on the link at the bottom of the message to have their own go at the song of the day.
