SoundCloud The new iOS profiles on SoundCloud 🎶 allow you to reintroduce yourself 🎶

Today we’re introducing a new profile design on iOS that gives you maximum brand exposure, increased plays and more followers, all in one place.

As the only platform that allows creators and listeners to connect in real time, this new layout will make it easier for fans and fellow artists to see who you are and navigate your content. When they land on your profile, they can instantly play what you’ve pinned to Spotlight or dive into your Top Tracks (most played in the past 90 days) and get to know what you’re all about via your bio and imagery. If they like what they hear (and see), they can send your profile to friends in seconds with the all-new ‘Share profile’ button.

While the new profiles on iOS will automatically level up your presence, you can also actively use the tools to promote yourself. On desktop, update your profile photo and header image to correspond with your latest (look or release, respectively), craft a clever bio so that fans get a glimpse of your personality, list your credentials and contact info, and pin a track you want to highlight in the Spotlight section. And once your profile is looking its best, you can shop it around in just one tap. 

Even if you don’t have iOS, chances are a lot of your fans do, and Android users can take advantage of this redesign by updating your profile on web. As the new profiles on iOS will pull in your desktop profile, your audience will see the more streamlined mobile experience on their phones. So everybody wins.

While social media handles are a good way to swap contact info or a snapshot of your work, as a creator you know it’s important to be seen and heard. Now your SoundCloud account is the only digital handshake you need: your visual and auditory introduction to followers, fellow creators and industry execs. They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression – but you actually do with new profiles on iOS.

The new profile rolls out to users today and is available via the latest version of the SoundCloud mobile app on iOS.
