We’ve just dropped The Upload, a brand new discovery feature on SoundCloud that brings you a list of the freshest new music uploaded to the platform, personalized to your taste on a daily basis.
With a constantly expanding mix of music uploaded to SoundCloud every day, we’ve now made it easier to filter through it all. The Upload is all about surfacing more of what you’re into, or what you might be, and is the go-to destination for a regularly updated, bespoke playlist of new music relevant to you.
It is available via the Discover tab on web, and in the Search tab on iOS and Android and works by recommending tracks that have been uploaded to SoundCloud within the last few days based on what you like and listen to. The more you listen to on SoundCloud, the better The Upload will surface new artists and music for you.
With the largest and most diverse music catalog around, we want to make discovery on SoundCloud even easier and we’re utilizing machine learning to offer new ways for you to find more music. This new feature is another opportunity for creators on SoundCloud to get their music heard by our global community and a great way for listeners to be on the pulse of what’s next, now.
Check The Upload out and make it part of your routine!
We are excited to announce SoundCloud is now available on Google Chromecast through your iOS device. While we were already integrated with Android, we’ve made it even better and extended the experience to include iOS devices.
What’s new? Now users with a SoundCloud Go+ subscription can stream their complete catalog through Google Chromecast. We also enabled shared playback, so multiple users can control what’s playing. Finally, we upgraded both of the mobile apps and the receiver to provide a consistent and streamlined experience.
With SoundCloud and Google Chromecast, you can stream everything you want, the way you want, through your TV and speakers.
Every day, the SoundCloud team is working hard to ensure SoundCloud remains a constantly evolving hub for culture-defining creativity, while also growing and expanding our revenue sharing opportunities to all kinds of creators. DJs and producers are an integral part of the SoundCloud ecosystem, sharing thousands of new tracks on the platform every day. This is why we’re especially psyched to share today’s news, the expansion of the SoundCloud Premier program.
Beginning today, DJs and producers who create sets, remixes and other forms of creative works will now be invited to join our SoundCloud Premier program, and earn revenue for the tracks they share on SoundCloud. This means:
- More creators in the SoundCloud Premier program – adding DJs and producers to the program in addition to creators of original works
- Creating more ways for artists to build their audience – while getting paid. In addition to the massive global community SoundCloud provides, DJs and producers invited to join SoundCloud Premier, can now share their work with a wide audience while also generating revenue.
SoundCloud Premier was launched in 2014 to enable creators to earn money for the work they share on SoundCloud. The program is powered by the revenues we generate through our subscription services and advertising on the platform. The more we grow revenues, the more creators we can invite into the program.
While the Premier program remains invite-only for the moment, we are increasing the number of people invited every day. You can let us know you’re interested in participating by signing up at: https://on.soundcloud.com/premier.
