When we started SoundCloud a few years ago, we had the vision of enabling people to create and share sound more easily and collaboratively.
Today, we’re more than thrilled to extend ten million Thank You’s to our 10 million registered SoundClouders.
Ten million is not just a number to us, it is proof that we’re not alone on our mission to unmute the web and it gives us goosebumps to know that more than ten million people from around the world have been finding value in SoundCloud in many different ways. As of today:
- Sound is mobile: Over 5 million official SoundCloud apps have been downloaded
- Sound is developing: Over 10,000 apps being developed on SoundCloud’s open platform. Recent additions include integrations with professional music creation software Pro Tools and Cakewalk.
- Sound is more than music: Over 3.3 million different tags show the breadth of sounds on SoundCloud, which now includes everything from journalists & bloggers (Robert Scoble, Mike Butcher), to publishing (Penguin Books UK), to education (Stanford).
Please join us to celebrate this huge milestone with us by listening to a ‘Story Wheel’, in which our co-founders Alex & Eric reflect on SoundCloud’s journey so far. Simply click the image below to access the Story Wheel.
Oh, and if you’d like to create your own Story Wheel to tell a story behind your Instagram photos, it all starts here.
Thanks, all. You rock.
