We’re always excited to help you find the latest and greatest new music & audio on SoundCloud. Today, it gets even easier to hear what’s happening in the SoundCloud community: we’ve released the new Explore feature on the web and our Android app.
Explore provides a new way to discover trending music & audio, with multiple feeds of the freshest content. ‘Trending Music’ and ‘Trending Audio’ are new tracks that people are playing, liking and reposting on SoundCloud (they could be tomorrow’s big hits). You can also browse to see what’s popular and fresh in your favorite genres. On Android, you can click play once and Explore takes it from there, with new tracks queued up by our system, based on their similarity to the first track you played.
Explore is great for creators, too: it’s a new way for your track to get heard by an even bigger audience. If one of your tracks is getting lots of attention, there’s a chance our algorithm will incorporate it into one or more Explore feeds.
Stay tuned for further updates: we’re working on building great ways to discover new music & audio across all SoundCloud platforms, for all of our users. In the meantime, check out the new Explore feature on the web, or download the SoundCloud app for Android.
