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!

Joern Introducing Suggested Tracks

SoundCloud is built for discovery; for the magic moment when you’re blown away by an artist you’ve never heard before. Connecting listeners to new artists and artists to new listeners is what we do.

Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve started rolling out our newest discovery feature, Suggested Tracks, across all SoundCloud platforms. It uses your listening activity to automatically find new tracks and artists – ones that you’ve likely never heard before, but are similar to the things you already know and love. And with 125 million tracks and counting on SoundCloud, there’s always more to discover.

Suggested Tracks

Suggested Tracks makes use of our state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm to deliver fresh new music and audio suggestions based on your likes and plays on SoundCloud – refreshing frequently with tracks you won’t find anywhere else. The more you use SoundCloud, the more the algorithm learns and perfects itself, day after day.

On the web, Suggested Tracks is the centerpiece of the new Discover tab we’ve added to your home screen experience. In our app, you’ll find Suggested Tracks in the Search field – easily accessible by tapping the magnifying glass icon in the footer (iOS) or header (Android) of the app.
