Today, we’re excited to share some big news: SoundCloud Pulse, our very first app just for creators, is now live for Android devices. SoundCloud Pulse is a companion to SoundCloud’s existing app and will enable creators to manage their accounts and keep their communities humming – anytime, anywhere.
To get your hands on SoundCloud Pulse 1.0, download the app today for free from the Google Play Store. In the coming months, we’ll be working with you to understand how we can make the app even better – more versatile, more powerful, more useful – and rolling out a host of new features.
Below are all the details on today’s release and the plans for what’s ahead.
SoundCloud Pulse lets you:
- Reply to comments on your tracks, on the go
- Get up-to-date stats on the performance of your tracks
- Share your sounds, both publicly and privately
- Follow other users
These features are only our first step toward making the creator experience on mobile better. Along with an iOS version of the app, you can expect to see these features in the future:
- More in-depth stats
- The ability to edit track information
- Expanded messaging capability
- The ability to upload tracks
Stay tuned for all the latest on app and product updates. We’ll keep you posted through our social channels and here on the blog as we add new features.
We’re excited to put SoundCloud Pulse in your hands to help you share your best tracks, connect with fans and, ultimately, build a career. We’re proud to be bringing the creator experience to mobile. And we can’t wait to hear what’s next from you.

First impressions count, and being able to decide how your fans see and hear what you make is a big part of expressing yourself. Over the next few days, we’ll be gradually rolling out an updated profile layout on SoundCloud.com to everyone. Here’s a quick rundown of the improvements.
One of the most requested features by creators and listeners alike is the ability to view someone’s Tracks, Playlists, and Reposts separately. The new profile layout enables anyone to easily select between All Posts, or the Tracks, Playlists, and Reposts posted to a profile. We’ve also tidied up how user info is displayed on your profile.
For creators, this means that any of the 175 million monthly SoundCloud listeners can now go straight to the tracks you’ve uploaded. It also means that you can get a great sense of someone’s taste by checking out their Playlists and Reposts.
The feature that has been requested most in the last year (by a very long way!) is the ability to upload a header image to your profile. We’re happy to announce that the wait is over – starting today, the header image is coming to everyone.
We’re going to roll the ability to upload a header image out to creators on Pro and Pro Unlimited plans over the course of the next few days, then we’ll gradually open the feature to everyone else. We can’t wait to see how you choose to customize your profile’s look. Until you upload a header image to your profile, a gradient based on your profile image will be displayed.
We’ll keep refining with the help of your feedback, so stay tuned for more updates to your profile coming soon.
Ever wondered which cities your tracks are most popular in? Question answered, if you have a Pro Unlimited plan: stats now drill down to show the cities where your tracks are played, liked, reposted, downloaded, and commented on the most.
Plan your next tour, release strategy, and get better at connecting with your fanbase, by knowing exactly where they are — just click the ‘Top cities’ tab in your stats dashboard.
