SoundCloud SoundCloud brings music fans more than 135 million tracks

SoundCloud is the world’s largest audio and music streaming platform, now with more than 135 million tracks from the biggest names, to new and emerging artists you can’t find anywhere else. Connecting artists of every level with listeners, and listeners with their new favorite artist or track is what we do, and we continue to make it easier than ever to discover on SoundCloud.

This summer, we launched several new features to help you discover SoundCloud’s massive catalog of diverse content – from hip-hop, rock, pop, jazz, ambient, witch-hop and electronic, to new genres and sounds emerging on SoundCloud everyday.

Our new features were specially designed to enhance your personal listening experience, and each new feature serves up a unique mix of music for all of the different moments in your daily life. To sum it all up, we’ve created an easy visual to help you decide which feature to pair with any moment or mood in your day.  

Whether you use SoundCloud’s free offering or our new subscription service SoundCloud Go, all of the new features are available to you. With SoundCloud Go, you get access to an expanded catalog of content and an ad-free listening experience you can take offline. Haven’t tried SoundCloud Go yet? Click here for more info.

Enjoy discovering on SoundCloud and stay tuned for more features rolling out this fall.

Brendan SoundCloud Stats: more detail, more speed

Today we’re excited to announce the launch of a completely redesigned Stats page for all SoundCloud users who share their music and audio. Jami’s here to tell you all about it:

  • Free users can view which of their tracks are played, liked, reposted, downloaded, and commented on the most.
  • Pro users can see their top fans on SoundCloud and the countries where their tracks are popular. Reach out to your top fans with SoundCloud messaging to connect and get feedback. You may find you have a fan base halfway around the world – plan your latest release or tour based on where your tracks are being played.
  • With a Pro Unlimited account, you get the above features and can also see the websites, apps, and social networks that people are listening from. Use this data to understand the network you’re a part of – you could find you’ve been written up on a blog or that many people are reposting your tracks on SoundCloud.

Based on your feedback, we’ve significantly streamlined the design. All of your stats are now viewable from one page.

SoundCloud Unmute Your Timeline with the New SoundCloud Facebook Integration

It’s a new year and it’s time to go beyond listening & playing, and get more social by sharing sounds and interactions on SoundCloud to Facebook! Back in September at the Facebook F8 launch, we were announced as an integration partner, and here are the results. Starting today, you’ll be able to share your SoundCloud activity and interactions to Facebook more easily, putting more sound into your Timeline!

Coolsauce:

In addition to showcasing your newly uploaded sounds and favorites on SoundCloud, you will now be able to share:

  • the cool SoundClouders you started following
  • the engaging groups you joined
  • and the sweet sounds you listened to while cruising the community

It’s totally up to you to enable the additional actions, but if you do, there will be a recap of your activity on SoundCloud in your Facebook Timeline each month.

You’ll have the option to connect and disconnect anything at any time at the following link as well.

Note:

  • If you enabled sharing sounds you listened to on SoundCloud to Facebook, all sounds you listen to will be posted to the Facebook Ticker, no matter where you’re listening on the web. So that means: if you listen on the iPhone, iPad, Android app, mobile site, and/or via an embedded widget while logged into SoundCloud, these sounds will be shared to the Facebook Ticker and recapped in your Timeline.
  • If you have your Facebook account connected to SoundCloud, by default your newly uploaded sounds and favorites will be posted to Facebook. You can turn this off here if you wish.

That’s it for now, folks! If you have additional questions about this, please check the FAQs that appear at the top of this page. In the meantime, dig into the SoundCloud Facebook app and go beyond listening & playing by sharing your ‘Cloud interactions with your friends and unmute your Timeline!
