SoundCloud New Playlist Stat Connects Creators and Curators

We know stats are an essential tool for creators, and that’s why SoundCloud’s excited to introduce a new playlist stat, which offers all creators even more ways to understand where their plays are coming from and the people behind them.

The new playlist stat, available on the web and on SoundCloud Pulse, SoundCloud’s creator-focused companion app, shows creators who’s sharing their tracks in a playlist, and how many plays are being generated from the playlist. This means that the 1.2 million creators featured in playlists on SoundCloud, daily, can gain insight on, connect and engage more easily with the incredible curator community on the platform.

Check out what the new stats module, which includes both a ranked list of playlists a track is featured on and the total number of plays, looks like on the web below. The module is also available on SoundCloud Pulse, available for free on iOS and Android.

In addition to a new playlist stat, SoundCloud also recently rolled out a refreshed visual experience for stats on the web. All creators, including SoundCloud Pro or Pro Unlimited users, will find an overall better stats management experience, featuring a more intuitive interface and new look and feel for visualised stats. Some of the stats benefiting from the redesign include top listener and top country, which are now even easier for creators to uncover.

These latest updates are part of SoundCloud’s efforts to continually look at how it can create an even better experience that fully supports creators no matter where they are in their career. Stay tuned to the blog for news on the many exciting things to come for creators on SoundCloud.

SoundCloud Even more stats on SoundCloud Pulse

SoundCloud Pulse, SoundCloud’s creator-focused companion app, enables creators to manage their accounts and keep their communities humming anytime, anywhere. The app brings the insights available on desktop to the hands of on-the-go creators. This includes the latest stats on track performance, the ability to comment back to fans, edit tracks, and manage your profile directly in the app.

All creators get access to their top listener, country and city on SoundCloud Pulse. SoundCloud Pro or SoundCloud Pro Unlimited subscribers will get access to a top 50 list of stats.

SoundCloud Product Year In Review: All the features that helped you discover more in 2016

blogpost_recentlyplayed_listeninghistory

It’s been a busy year for SoundCloud. In addition to launching our new consumer subscription service, SoundCloud Go – among many more projects we can’t share with you just yet – we’ve been working on and launching a heap of new features to make the SoundCloud experience even better.

A few weeks ago we added Recently Played tracks and Listening History to help you rediscover music and easily access your most recent plays. With these new features, all of the tracks from the day, past week, month and further are now available via the Collection tab on your profile, meaning you have your previously played sounds at your fingertips anytime you want them.

In addition to Recently Played and Listening History, we introduced a number of additional features to help you discover more, and enable new and emerging creators to get discovered.

 

You can check out our 2016 product wrap-up below:

  • Stations is our never-ending radio-like stream of music which can be started from a track or an artist profile. It’s one of the easiest ways to lean back and enjoy tracks. You can like or unlike a Station to save it to your Collection for further listening.
  • Suggested Tracks learns your tastes and makes suggestions based on your likes and plays.
  • Charts is the place to find the tracks that are getting a lot of buzz on SoundCloud. The ‘Top 50’ updates every day to show the 50-most played tracks for the past week, and ‘New & Hot’ updates multiple times a day to show the tracks that are trending right now. We’re currently rolling this out and it will be available to all users soon. 
  • Albums enable you to easily find old classics alongside new favorites. This gives you more control around how you organize your sounds on SoundCloud.
  • Recently Played and Listening History gives you the ability to access your recent plays via your Collection.
  • Offline Sync is available when you subscribe to our subscription service SoundCloud Go which is available in the US, UK, Ireland, France, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Germany. It gives listeners access to over 135 million tracks from the greatest and most established artists, ad-free, alongside tens of millions of tracks not found anywhere else.

Alongside new features in the SoundCloud app, we’ve also made improvements to our creator-focused app, SoundCloud Pulse. This year we added new features including the ability to edit track titles, genres, tags and descriptions, and to choose whether a track is public, private or downloadable, all within the SoundCloud Pulse app. Creators can also keep up-to-date with what listeners are saying about tracks on-the-go by accessing comments via the mobile app.

With the largest and most diverse catalog around, we want to make discovering on SoundCloud even easier. We’re always testing and innovating to bring new ways for you to find more music, and get heard on SoundCloud. Stay tuned to this space for new feature updates coming in 2017.

Enjoy your holidays, and Happy New Year!
