New mini player makes browsing during playback a breeze
Stop pausing your party – you can now seamlessly browse, control and “like” music & audio on your mobile device thanks to the SoundCloud app’s new mini player feature.
The mini player offers you the same full-screen player experience you use to discover, share, and stream on SoundCloud everyday, but in a “fun-size” package to make sure you get the most out of your listening experience.
Starting today, free and subscription-based users can explore SoundCloud’s massive catalog of over 177 million tracks without ever interrupting their listening experience. A visible bar positioned at the bottom of your screen, the mini player includes navigation controls, track metadata, and a dedicated “like” button, offering:
- A seamless play-in-place experience – The mini player makes toggling between the full-screen player and the home screen a thing of the past, allowing you to play more and skip less.
- More ways to discover – More seamlessly integrated browsing and listening means you can discover your next favorite artist while streaming your current favorite track.
- A faster way to build an audio collection – The player’s one-tap “like” button gives you the ability to “like” tracks and playlists faster than ever, helping you build your music collection in no time.
- More ways to engage – The more you discover and “like” tracks and playlists, the more you connect with SoundCloud’s vibrant community of creators, curators, and fans.
