We love helping you make your music & audio sound great. But we know you want them to look great, too. Which is why we’re launching a new integration with Instagram to make it easier than ever to add your favorite photos to your SoundCloud posts and profile.

It’s easy. Connect your Instagram feed to your SoundCloud account.  Then you’ll be free to choose your best photos to add to your tracks, playlists, groups, or profile. You can do it straight away when you post on SoundCloud, or add Instagram images later on the sound or track’s page. Looking for inspiration? Kaskade and Krewella have already hooked it up.

Justin New Today: Share Sounds to Google+

We’re always excited to develop new ways to make it easy for you to share and hear sounds everywhere. So we’re happy to announce today that we’re working together with Google to make it easier than ever to reach your audience by sharing sounds to Google+.

Pearl Jam Google + SoundCloud 2

We launched a Google+ Sign-In integration back in May, making it possible for you to sign in to SoundCloud using your Google account. Today, we’ve leveled up our integration. Share any SoundCloud URL to your Google+ circles and the widget will appear, automatically in the post. (You’ll need to make sure to enable the widget when you post your sounds so they can be shared this way.) That also means that you (and your followers!) can play sounds from SoundCloud within Google+: no need to open up a new tab.

And it’s effortless — check out how artists like Pearl Jam, Snoop Lion and Armin Van Buuren are already using the integration to share their latest tracks (look out for the hashtags: #soundcloudplus and #summersound). Don’t forget to follow us on Google+, too.

How does it work?
It’s easy. Use the Figure app to create and share your creation with the world by using built-in SoundCloud sharing (available in Figure version 1.4).
