Thanks to your feedback through months of private beta, we’re thrilled to be making a big announcement: today, the Next SoundCloud becomes SoundCloud for everyone.
What you hear and see today is the direct result of your input: this is your SoundCloud. For creators of music & audio like you, it means that you’ll be heard everywhere. For your friends, fans and followers, the new SoundCloud will make discovering, connecting and sharing sounds even easier and more fun.
It’s much more than just a redesign. Not only does SoundCloud look completely different, it has many exciting new features for you:
Grow your audience by seeing your sounds shared across the community, or build a following around your excellent taste by reposting sounds into your own stream for others to discover.
Curate a collection with your own sounds or the sounds you love — it’s simple. Sets can be reposted and shared throughout the community, which will help you find new people to hear and share your sounds.
Hit play and continue exploring: keep listening while you discover even more music & audio. It’s seamless.
Search & Explore:
Find it, hear it: our improved search lets you find the music & audio you’re looking for. Not sure what you want? Explore lets you discover what’s new and hot.
And there’s more: the new SoundCloud is filled with tons of smaller details that we hope will make your experience better. You’ll see that we’ve improved timed comments and added keyboard shortcuts and a shuffle feature for the sounds you’ve liked. The new Activity tab keeps you informed about what’s happening around your music & audio in real time and a personalized ‘who to follow’ lists helps you find people like you.
This is only the beginning: in the coming weeks, we’ll be working on all areas of the web and mobile apps so that you can enjoy SoundCloud as a cross-platform experience.
On that note, we want to thank you not only for your help during the beta, but for making SoundCloud what it is: a fantastic community of sound creators and lovers where positive spirit, mutual respect and support has made this community one that you can all be proud of. Thank you. Stay awesome!
As always, we love your feedback: leave a comment to tell us what you like most about the new SoundCloud.
