Today we’re excited to announce the launch of a completely redesigned Stats page for all SoundCloud users who share their music and audio. Jami’s here to tell you all about it:
Free users can view which of their tracks are played, liked, reposted, downloaded, and commented on the most.
Pro users can see their top fans on SoundCloud and the countries where their tracks are popular. Reach out to your top fans with SoundCloud messaging to connect and get feedback. You may find you have a fan base halfway around the world - plan your latest release or tour based on where your tracks are being played.
With a Pro Unlimited account, you get the above features and can also see the websites, apps, and social networks that people are listening from. Use this data to understand the network you’re a part of – you could find you’ve been written up on a blog or that many people are reposting your tracks on SoundCloud.
Based on your feedback, we’ve significantly streamlined the design. All of your stats are now viewable from one page.
Access your redesigned stats in the drop down menu to get started learning more about who’s playing your sounds.
Find more details about how to use your stats in the help center. Can’t see your redesigned stats? Please hold tight — we’re rolling the feature out in stages, so if you don’t see it yet, you will soon.
You’re already used to seeing and sharing the SoundCloud player all over the web. But today it’s getting a new look: we’re excited to launch our new visual player, making tracks look as good as they sound, anywhere. Telling you about it is one thing, but showing it is even better.
The visual player may look fancy, but embedding it is easy to do as ever: simply click ‘Share’ on the track to access the visual player.
We’ve amped up the playing experience by including continuous listening in the visual player. Related tracks are showcased during pause and after finishing playback so you can explore even more music & audio straight from the visual player, wherever you find it on the web.
For Pro Unlimited users, we’ve included a way for even more of your tracks to get heard. Your Spotlight tracks will display in the player during pause and after playback instead of other related tracks. Simply click “More options” in the embed screen (you can also disable related sounds). Need more information? Head to the Help Center.
If you’re already using our players, the existing formats will continue to be available: you’ll see that they’re getting a waveform makeover that makes them look more similar to the visual player.
Give it a whirl: we hope you’ll like having more to see with what you’re hearing!
The boundless creativity and talent on SoundCloud make our community so unique. We love hearing about your stories of growth and success. We’re excited to bring you one of the most exciting opportunities to touch down on our platform.
