Hear what’s happening: new messaging

HWH_Messaging_Blog_V01

We’re always working on ways to help you to share the music & audio that you create, as well as the new tracks that you discover. That’s why today, we’re launching a new messaging system on our web platform that makes it simpler than ever to share what you’ve heard and to talk about what you’ve been playing and loving.

Click on the envelope icon in the header to get to your messages — as you’ll see, they’re now organized by conversation. You can message other SoundCloud users from here, or from clicking on the envelope icons on their profiles.

You can also send tracks and playlists in your messages, right from their players. It’s perfect for sharing new discoveries and giving people private previews of your works-in-progress.

Start a new conversation on any track with the ‘Share’ button: you’ll see that there’s now a built-in ‘Message’ tab alongside the ‘Share’ and ‘Embed’. Just click to send the track privately, along with a message of your choice, to any other SoundCloud user. A super simple way to let folks hear what’s happening for you on SoundCloud.
