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.
Please note: Due to resources, maintaining the desktop app became a bit difficult, so it has now been discontinued. We’re currently focusing energy on making the iOS app and web experience as good as they can be. If you enjoyed the playlist feature, the new SoundCloud allows this. If you would like to bring the SoundCloud experience to your desktop, you can try out this app (just keep in mind that we don’t have the proper resources to maintain this app at full speed).
With today’s launch of the Mac App Store, we’re happy to announce a new addition to the suite of native apps: the SoundCloud Desktop app for Mac. The coolest part: it’s currently a featured app in the Mac App Store in the section “What’s Hot” and also high up the list in the music category. The absolute coolest part: it’s free.
We’re bringing the SoundCloud experience to your desktop that allows you to access all the sounds shared exclusively with you to browse, listen to and favorite sounds. Create custom playlists and saved searches to see the sounds you need in an instant and download others for offline playback. And just like all the official SoundCloud apps it also includes record functionality that lets you easily capture and upload any sound whenever you need to share or store something quickly.
So whether you’re a serious sound professional who needs something to manage your daily workflow or just a casual creator who prefers the smooth native experience of OS X, SoundCloud Desktop does just the job.
– Record: capture your sounds right in the app and upload to your SoundCloud account in no time.
– Listen to, favorite and manage your exclusive and incoming tracks in one place.
– Browse and search any sound
– Create playlists and saved searches
Only tracks that have been made available for 3rd party applications will be accessible via SoundCloud Desktop. To change your settings, go to your track settings (pen icon above the waveform) and enable Apps.
Open the Mac App Store on your Mac after the software update that will install a dock icon for accessing the store. Or try this direct link.
