SoundCloud Maximize collaboration with private track and playlist sharing on iOS

 

We know that collaboration is important to your creative process, which is why today we’re making it easier than ever to share your work discreetly before it’s 100% ready to be unleashed.

Whether you’re getting tips from your college roommate’s producer friend, emailing mom to get her perspective (spoiler alert: she’ll LOVE it), or pitching your favorite music blog for feature consideration – collaboration is key. We’re the only audio streaming service to offer private track and playlist sharing because enabling your workflow will help you to create the best possible upload.

With the introduction of private track and playlist sharing on iOS, you can now maximize collaboration on the go, making it easier than ever to share demos, refine content, receive feedback and promote your work. The steps are simple and few. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. You can share a private track or playlist the same way you share a public link via the fullscreen player menu at the bottom of your screen. (Y
    ou must be the owner of the track to share one, meaning you cannot share someone else’s private track).
  2. Once you think it’s ready for the world, you can make a track or playlist public on your mobile phone. You’ll know if you’re public when the locked icon is gone.
  3. Decide you want to go back into stealth mode? You can easily switch back to “locked” status, so your track / playlist is unavailable for discovery.

Because creating your best work requires the best possible workflow, we’re committed to continuously improving your tools and our offerings. So you keep rocking and we’ll keep rolling out the updates – and make sure to check back here regularly so you don’t miss a thing.

Private track and playlist sharing is already available on Android, so download the latest version of the SoundCloud app in either the App Store or Google Play to access today.
