Today we’re giving creators even more flexibility on how they share their music on SoundCloud, adding seamless mobile playback of private tracks via the SoundCloud app.
Private sharing is used by millions of SoundCloud creators everyday to collaborate with other creators, share brand new music with a label or publicist, or offer fans an invite-only first-listen of their latest track. It’s just one of the ways that SoundCloud gives creators control over how their work is shared with the world.
Want to learn how to get started with private sharing?
- Open the privacy settings for any of your tracks by clicking on the ‘pen’ icon below the waveform on the web or on SoundCloud Pulse app.
- Next, click the bubble next to ‘private’ or ‘public.’
- Once your track is set to ‘private’, you can use the ‘share’ button to send.
- Recipients can open the secret link you’ve shared and play the private track on the SoundCloud app, mobile web, and web.

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!
