Today, we flipped the switch bringing music fans in the Netherlands more ways to enjoy SoundCloud with the launch of our consumer subscription plans: SoundCloud Go and SoundCloud Go+. SoundCloud Go and SoundCloud Go+ give you the flexibility and freedom to choose the features and content you want, at the price that fits your budget.

SoundCloud Go lets you discover, stream and share an ever-evolving mix of more than 120 million tracks from established and emerging artists, offline and ad-free. For those who want it all, SoundCloud Go+ is SoundCloud’s premium subscription offering which gives you full access to more than 150 million tracks, ad-free, offline with no previews. And as always, you can still enjoy SoundCloud via its free offering, which beginning today, will be supported by advertising in the Netherlands.

No matter which experience you choose, you’ll have access to all the features that help you discover the world’s most diverse community such as Suggested Tracks, Stations and Charts, while also tapping into a connected community of curators, creators and listeners who are driving what’s new, now and next in music culture.

SoundCloud Go and SoundCloud Go+ is available in the Netherlands on web, iOS App Store and Google Play. SoundCloud Go is 5.99 € (web/Android)/ 7.99 € (iOS) per month, and SoundCloud Go+ is 9.99 € (web/Android)/ 12.99 € (iOS) per month. iOS users can avoid the App Store surcharge by visiting soundcloud.com/go instead.

SoundCloud Product Year In Review: All the features that helped you discover more in 2016

It’s been a busy year for SoundCloud. In addition to launching our new consumer subscription service, SoundCloud Go – among many more projects we can’t share with you just yet – we’ve been working on and launching a heap of new features to make the SoundCloud experience even better.

A few weeks ago we added Recently Played tracks and Listening History to help you rediscover music and easily access your most recent plays. With these new features, all of the tracks from the day, past week, month and further are now available via the Collection tab on your profile, meaning you have your previously played sounds at your fingertips anytime you want them.

In addition to Recently Played and Listening History, we introduced a number of additional features to help you discover more, and enable new and emerging creators to get discovered.

 

You can check out our 2016 product wrap-up below:

  • Stations is our never-ending radio-like stream of music which can be started from a track or an artist profile. It’s one of the easiest ways to lean back and enjoy tracks. You can like or unlike a Station to save it to your Collection for further listening.
  • Suggested Tracks learns your tastes and makes suggestions based on your likes and plays.
  • Charts is the place to find the tracks that are getting a lot of buzz on SoundCloud. The ‘Top 50’ updates every day to show the 50-most played tracks for the past week, and ‘New & Hot’ updates multiple times a day to show the tracks that are trending right now. We’re currently rolling this out and it will be available to all users soon. 
  • Albums enable you to easily find old classics alongside new favorites. This gives you more control around how you organize your sounds on SoundCloud.
  • Recently Played and Listening History gives you the ability to access your recent plays via your Collection.
  • Offline Sync is available when you subscribe to our subscription service SoundCloud Go which is available in the US, UK, Ireland, France, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Germany. It gives listeners access to over 135 million tracks from the greatest and most established artists, ad-free, alongside tens of millions of tracks not found anywhere else.

Alongside new features in the SoundCloud app, we’ve also made improvements to our creator-focused app, SoundCloud Pulse. This year we added new features including the ability to edit track titles, genres, tags and descriptions, and to choose whether a track is public, private or downloadable, all within the SoundCloud Pulse app. Creators can also keep up-to-date with what listeners are saying about tracks on-the-go by accessing comments via the mobile app.

With the largest and most diverse catalog around, we want to make discovering on SoundCloud even easier. We’re always testing and innovating to bring new ways for you to find more music, and get heard on SoundCloud. Stay tuned to this space for new feature updates coming in 2017.

Enjoy your holidays, and Happy New Year!
