Fans fervently asked for it, and One Direction Heardle's creator delivered on the promise of the new Wordle variant. After the exceptional reception of Harry Styles Heardle, the singer's fandom, which often overlaps with his former band One Direction's fandom, demanded a 1D version of the game.

The game's creator, who goes by the user velvetesque, was quick on the uptake of the request and programmed the One Direction Heardle within days of the release of Harry Styles Heardle.

Ok I love that we now have Harry and one direction heardle’s. This is my kind of song guessing 😌

There has been a constant stream of musical Wordle spin-offs like Heardle and BTS Heardle, among other word-guessing versions, hitting the market. This onslaught was brought on by the popularity of the original game made by Josh Wardle in October 2021.


What is One Direction Heardle and how do you play it?

WHY AM I JUST FINDING OUT THAT THERE'S A ONE DIRECTION HEARDLE

Heardle, for the uninitiated, is a musical spin-off of Wordle with identical rules. Starting with a one-second sample of each song, a player has six chances to guess the song of the day. Each incorrect guess unlocks one additional second of the single to assist the player in making the correct guess.

These clips are often chosen from the song's beginning, although they can be selected from any other section.

The format and rules of the unofficial fan-made One Direction Heardle are the same as the original Heardle. The main distinction is that all the songs in the game are picked from the discography of the beloved band, One Direction.

Since One Direction Heardle is powered by the same software company as Harry Styles Heardle, Glitch, it also uses Soundcloud to source all the songs.

This version additionally includes a 'Skip' option for players. Instead of having to make blind guesses and waste a try, this function lets users skip to the next second of the song.

When a player is ready to make a guess, they may put in the song title, and the game will instantly provide them with a list of corresponding titles to choose from.

Like every other Wordle version, the game resets at midnight each day (specific to each player's timezone). The next song will not become available for guessing until the next day.
