Yeah, we’ve heard you – you’ve been patiently waiting for this one. It was a challenge for us to keep this a secret for a few months and that makes it even more exciting to be finally announcing the release of the official SoundCloud app for Android.
One quick note before we start: we wanted to release the app in time for the holidays and we’ll continue the development of the app so if you’re comparing the features to the ones available on the iPhone version and missing something, don’t worry, new updates will happen rapidly.
The official SoundCloud Android app lets you easily access, browse and listen to the sounds shared to you while you’re on the road and away from your computer. The app also includes recording functionality that lets you capture any sound around you and instantly save it in the ‘Cloud. Stay tuned, plenty more to come too.
- Record: capture and share your sounds on the go, wherever you are
- Browse, listen to and favorite sounds shared with you exclusively and on your Dashboard
- Visualize your sounds with the SoundCloud waveform and use it to seek inside a track
- Find and follow any SoundCloud user within the app
- Background playback
The next update will include sharing to Facebook & Twitter and also the ability to comment.
