SoundCloud Discover your next favorite track with the new SoundCloud Weekly playlist

Today, we’re making it easier than ever to discover what’s next in music, first on SoundCloud, with our new personalized playlist, SoundCloud Weekly.

With 180 million tracks and millions of artists to discover, sometimes SoundCloud can feel like a very big place to explore. We know many of you love the thrill of the hunt – going down a musical rabbit hole and uncovering new tracks and artists to love. But sometimes, you may want great music delivered to you auto-magically with no searching required.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of SoundCloud Weekly: your personalized discovery playlist connecting you with more creators and more music than ever before, with just one button to push. Updated every Monday, SoundCloud Weekly is an algorithmically-based playlist that looks at the music you’ve listened to, liked, reposted and shared, and then makes recommendations on what you may like to hear next.

Giving listeners and creators more ways to connect is what SoundCloud is all about, and SoundCloud Weekly connects more creators with new listeners than playlists on any other audio platform. Every time you drop into SoundCloud Weekly you get the chance to discover, connect with and support more creators worldwide.

We like to think of it as the entire universe of SoundCloud, personalized just for you. But don’t take it from us – let our friend Desiigner break down the serious science of SoundCloud Weekly for you in three short lessons:

SoundCloud Weekly is like: Honey

So, what are you waiting for? Start listening today. Look for your SoundCloud Weekly at the top of your home screen in your app on iOS and Android, and in the Discover tab on the web. Not seeing it in your feed? Keep on listening, liking, reposting and sharing the tracks you’re loving, and look for your SoundCloud Weekly playlist to appear the following Monday.  

SoundCloud New mini player makes browsing during playback a breeze

Stop pausing your party – you can now seamlessly browse, control and “like” music & audio on your mobile device thanks to the SoundCloud app’s new mini player feature.

The mini player offers you the same full-screen player experience you use to discover, share, and stream on SoundCloud everyday, but in a “fun-size” package to make sure you get the most out of your listening experience. 

Starting today, free and subscription-based users can explore SoundCloud’s massive catalog of over 177 million tracks without ever interrupting their listening experience. A visible bar positioned at the bottom of your screen, the mini player includes navigation controls, track metadata, and a dedicated “like” button, offering:

  • A seamless play-in-place experience – The mini player makes toggling between the full-screen player and the home screen a thing of the past, allowing you to play more and skip less.
  • More ways to discover – More seamlessly integrated browsing and listening means you can discover your next favorite artist while streaming your current favorite track.
  • A faster way to build an audio collection – The player’s one-tap “like” button gives you the ability to “like” tracks and playlists faster than ever, helping you build your music collection in no time.  
  • More ways to engage – The more you discover and “like” tracks and playlists, the more you connect with SoundCloud’s vibrant community of creators, curators, and fans.

Get a first look at the new mini player below and update your SoundCloud app on Android and iOS today to get your own mini player.

 

 

 

SoundCloud Introducing The Upload – New to SoundCloud. Selected for you.

 

We’ve just dropped The Upload, a brand new discovery feature on SoundCloud that brings you a list of the freshest new music uploaded to the platform, personalized to your taste on a daily basis.

With a constantly expanding mix of music uploaded to SoundCloud every day, we’ve now made it easier to filter through it all. The Upload is all about surfacing more of what you’re into, or what you might be, and is the go-to destination for a regularly updated, bespoke playlist of new music relevant to you.

It is available via the Discover tab on web, and in the Search tab on iOS and Android and works by recommending tracks that have been uploaded to SoundCloud within the last few days based on what you like and listen to. The more you listen to on SoundCloud, the better The Upload will surface new artists and music for you.

With the largest and most diverse music catalog around, we want to make discovery on SoundCloud even easier and we’re utilizing machine learning to offer new ways for you to find more music. This new feature is another opportunity for creators on SoundCloud to get their music heard by our global community and a great way for listeners to be on the pulse of what’s next, now.

Check The Upload out and make it part of your routine!
