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.
Repost and share – Directly from the search screen and from your list of liked tracks.
We’re always hard at work making SoundCloud easier and more intuitive to use. Today, we’re happy to announce an update to the SoundCloud upload experience. When uploading several tracks at once, you now have the ability to group them into a playlist.
Edit all the pertinent details of the playlist on one page during upload. Information that applies to all the tracks in your playlist – such as the artwork, description, tags, and settings – now only needs to be filled out once. Super simple.
If you’d like to upload a group of sounds but don’t want to turn them into a playlist, we’ve got you covered – simply uncheck the “Make a playlist when uploading multiple sounds” box before uploading and your sounds will upload as individual tracks.
Today we’re launching version 2.5 of our apps for iOS and Android.
The biggest development: sets are here on iPhone and Android. You’ve been able to create and hear them in your stream on the web for a while; now you can create, share and hear sets on your mobile, too. We’ll be adding the functionality to the iPad app in the coming weeks.
Build new collections of your favorite music & audio, or add individual sounds to sets that you’ve already started building. Plus, a new filter in the search tab lets you look for sets that other community members have put together.
You might notice that the Record button has moved: to help you discover and hear more with the app, we’ve shifted things around to make way for sets and more features (watch this space). iPhone users can find it in the ‘More’ menu. If you’re on Android, just swipe to find it in the side menu.
For iOS users, we’ve also given the UI an update, making it cleaner, sharper and simpler. Look out for the updated app icon, too.
We hope you’ll give the new apps a spin. As always, they’re free to download from Google Play or the Apple App Store. Let us know how you like the updates! We’re looking forward to your feedback.
