With today’s update to the SoundCloud app for Android devices, we’re rolling out a long-awaited feature: Play Related Tracks.
Select your track of choice, tap Play Related Tracks and let our improved algorithm create a stream of similar content – drawn from over 100 million tracks on SoundCloud.
Whether you’re listening to SoundCloud on iOS, Android, or a desktop computer, you can now create a stream of content that’s custom-generated from the track of your choice.
Download the latest version of the SoundCloud app on your Android device now. Your next discovery is a tap away.
First impressions count, and being able to decide how your fans see and hear what you make is a big part of expressing yourself. Over the next few days, we’ll be gradually rolling out an updated profile layout on SoundCloud.com to everyone. Here’s a quick rundown of the improvements.
One of the most requested features by creators and listeners alike is the ability to view someone’s Tracks, Playlists, and Reposts separately. The new profile layout enables anyone to easily select between All Posts, or the Tracks, Playlists, and Reposts posted to a profile. We’ve also tidied up how user info is displayed on your profile.
For creators, this means that any of the 175 million monthly SoundCloud listeners can now go straight to the tracks you’ve uploaded. It also means that you can get a great sense of someone’s taste by checking out their Playlists and Reposts.
The feature that has been requested most in the last year (by a very long way!) is the ability to upload a header image to your profile. We’re happy to announce that the wait is over – starting today, the header image is coming to everyone.
We’re going to roll the ability to upload a header image out to creators on Pro and Pro Unlimited plans over the course of the next few days, then we’ll gradually open the feature to everyone else. We can’t wait to see how you choose to customize your profile’s look. Until you upload a header image to your profile, a gradient based on your profile image will be displayed.
We’ll keep refining with the help of your feedback, so stay tuned for more updates to your profile coming soon.
Just in time for summer, we’re excited to announce a significant update to the SoundCloud iOS app – one that brings new features and functionality to your on-the-go listening experience.
Right away, you’ll notice a set of new features that make discovering your next favorite tracks even easier. Using the iOS app, you’ll now be able to:
- Play related tracks – Find a track you love, then let our improved algorithm create a long stream of similar content from the 100 million tracks on SoundCloud. As easy as tapping Play Related Tracks.
Looking for backyard jams, seaside sounds, or a soundtrack to city streets? Find the perfect track – the one that hits all the notes you’re looking for – and tap Play Related Tracks. We’ll take care of the rest.
- Shuffle tracks – Bring a new twist to the favorites in your collection. Shuffle is now available for your liked tracks and in your playlists.
It’s easy to shuffle your liked tracks – simply tap the Shuffle button at the top of your Likes screen.
If you’d like to shuffle the tracks in a playlist, click on the three dots next to any playlist – you’ll now access a new set of options, including the Shuffle feature.
- Add or remove tracks directly from your playlists – Do it right inside the app, with no need to log onto SoundCloud in a browser. Tap those same three dots on any track to open the options list and then add or remove tracks to curate your perfect SoundCloud experience.
