We’re always excited to develop new ways to make it easy for you to share and hear sounds everywhere. So we’re happy to announce today that we’re working together with Google to make it easier than ever to reach your audience by sharing sounds to Google+.
We launched a Google+ Sign-In integration back in May, making it possible for you to sign in to SoundCloud using your Google account. Today, we’ve leveled up our integration. Share any SoundCloud URL to your Google+ circles and the widget will appear, automatically in the post. (You’ll need to make sure to enable the widget when you post your sounds so they can be shared this way.) That also means that you (and your followers!) can play sounds from SoundCloud within Google+: no need to open up a new tab.
And it’s effortless — check out how artists like Pearl Jam, Snoop Lion and Armin Van Buuren are already using the integration to share their latest tracks (look out for the hashtags: #soundcloudplus and #summersound). Don’t forget to follow us on Google+, too.
Another week, another blogging service integrated to the Sharing option on SoundCloud. This week’s guest: Blogger.com.
Here’s your step-by-step guide to show you how easy it is to share your favorite tracks, sets and group sets to your blog hosted on Blogger.com.
Let’s start by looking at the Share options where you’ll see the Blogger logo:
Now when you click it, we’ll ask you to authorize SoundCloud to connect with your Blogger account (you can always change the authorization settings in your Blogger/Google account):
By clicking Go to Authorization, you’ll be redirected to the Google page (shown below) where you simply click Grant access. Once the access was granted, we will take you back to the page on SoundCloud to continue with your post.
In the window pictured below, you’ll be able to edit your post title, add tags and write more about the track/set/group you wish to post. You can also save the post as a draft if you don’t want it to get posted immediately.
Click Post and – Ta-da – you just blogged a SoundCloud track:
