Today we’re leveling up your music listening with the launch of the new SoundCloud app on Xbox One. As a gamer you crave an easy to use streaming audio experience that won’t get in the way of your game. So, whether you’re playing a first person shooter, the newest racing game, or your favorite sports title, you can beat your opponents with your music tastes by having SoundCloud on-hand as your perfect gaming partner.
We’ve built an app that seamlessly fits into your gaming experience and with access to millions of songs, you’ll never miss a beat. Xbox One users can download the app from the Xbox App Store and easily begin creating soundtracks that will get you in the zone and level up your gaming.
Whether you’re a SoundCloud Free, SoundCloud Go, or SoundCloud Go+ user, you’ll be able to listen to your favourite tracks, playlists and our brand new feature, The Upload, while you game. And you can control playback with the sound of your voice using Cortana to play and skip tracks without leaving the game.
SoundCloud on Xbox One is the only app offering access to the world’s largest, constantly expanding mix of music from emerging talent and the world’s biggest artists.
Get your game face on and download it now from the Xbox App Store!
The SoundCloud Beta app for Windows 10 PCs and tablets will also be available beginning today. Users can visit the Windows Store to access the app and share their feedback here.
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 desktop web and 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.
