When we say all-new, we mean all-new. Designed and built from scratch. Easy and natural to use while you are out and about. Something that lets you hear more of what you want to hear.
So what makes the app special? It’s beautifully simple. You can control everything with your thumb. Tap anywhere to play and pause. Swipe to skip tracks. Slide along the waveform to explore a track and its artwork. Easy.
Tracks and playlists you’ve liked, and the playlists you’ve created, can all be found under the ‘You’ tab. The new home screen makes it easier to find new things you’ll love — your stream, trending artists, tracks and genres are all there. Use the new Search to play tracks directly from the Search page, or to follow a user you’ve discovered. And see the likes, playlists and posts of any user right up front on their profile — nothing is hidden behind tabs.
As we focused on making the best possible listening experience, we decided to remove the Record button. For those of you who want to record and post audio to SoundCloud from your phones, Retronym’s new AudioCopy app is a great solution. (If you have recorded sounds stored on your iPhone, please read this before installing the new app.)
Collaboration is at the heart of SoundCloud, so we invited users like you to give feedback along every step of the process, speaking to all kinds of people about what would make the best SoundCloud app. Keep the feedback coming: we’d love to hear from you as we continue the ongoing process of developing the app.
This is not a late April Fool’s joke (seriously, it’s not). (And that was not a ploy to get you to believe that this is not a late April Fool’s joke even though it actually is.) (Trust us, it’s not.) (For real.)
We’re excited to announce that Funny or Die is presenting Comedy Month on SoundCloud for all of April. Each week, they’ll create a new playlist of some of their favorite comedy tracks available on SoundCloud. Other partners like Comedy Central, Kevin Smith’s SModCo, and Earwolf will also be uploading new stand up and comedy podcasts on a regular basis.
