SoundCloud New Playlist Stat Connects Creators and Curators

We know stats are an essential tool for creators, and that’s why SoundCloud’s excited to introduce a new playlist stat, which offers all creators even more ways to understand where their plays are coming from and the people behind them.

The new playlist stat, available on the web and on SoundCloud Pulse, SoundCloud’s creator-focused companion app, shows creators who’s sharing their tracks in a playlist, and how many plays are being generated from the playlist. This means that the 1.2 million creators featured in playlists on SoundCloud, daily, can gain insight on, connect and engage more easily with the incredible curator community on the platform.

Check out what the new stats module, which includes both a ranked list of playlists a track is featured on and the total number of plays, looks like on the web below. The module is also available on SoundCloud Pulse, available for free on iOS and Android.

In addition to a new playlist stat, SoundCloud also recently rolled out a refreshed visual experience for stats on the web. All creators, including SoundCloud Pro or Pro Unlimited users, will find an overall better stats management experience, featuring a more intuitive interface and new look and feel for visualised stats. Some of the stats benefiting from the redesign include top listener and top country, which are now even easier for creators to uncover.

These latest updates are part of SoundCloud’s efforts to continually look at how it can create an even better experience that fully supports creators no matter where they are in their career. Stay tuned to the blog for news on the many exciting things to come for creators on SoundCloud.
