Question

How do I disable that #$%#$% Autoplay

I had at one point set my sound cloud so that I would not be shoved into another audio once the once I was listening to finish. That seems to have been unset. Please help.

I find it funny and a little ironic that SoundCloud is utterly deaf when it comes to this issue and how much we all DESPISE it. The next song that comes up always makes me want to hurl.

Another thead showing that sc dont care anymore.
It is a great feature for artist that people dont wanna listen to to get their statistics up. A perfect way to saturate the market.

Me frustrated? Yes, a bit.

As soon as I start a new song, autoplay is back on. It is one of the worst features Ive ever experienced in an app.

This is on the level as when Spotify dont let you play your downloaded tracks. Retarded logics.

Heres some of the people with the same thoughts:

And this is just some of the threads.

WHEN IS SOMETHINGS GOING TO HAPPEN!?!?!?!?!? I Will add links when I get my next frustration about this.

Plenty of people ending their subscriptions over this. Yeah, great feature soundcloud.
BUMP.

This feature needs to be killed or optional. It ruins my whole experience of listening to Soundcloud. I dont "#%"%"#%"%& wanna listen to Lil tecca all the #%"#%"%" TIME.

%%"#%"#%#% you soundcloud.
Autoplay should be a setting like playback quality. On or Off by default. I would have it off as a general rule. Station is a far better function for this. The Autoplay is only a station function of the last song played anyhow. To redundant.


in ios you can turn it off in Library>overflow>settings>autoreplay related tracks>off

Heres my 2 cent.


TURN IT $-@&@&&$+$+$ OFF!!!!!!!!!

Asurd to not be able to do that. Worst f feature on soundcloud. I have NEVER been recommended music i enjoyed. F this.
Soundlcoud this is extremely simple

Everyone is happy to listen to the additional artists you suggest*

IT MUST BE CONSENSUAL. If it isn't then people are not happy. Many of them in fact will be angry

Many many more than you will be aware of or who ever came to visit this thread

This is such utterly basic human nature that it hurts the brain to try and comprehend your reasoning.

You are actually humans, right? Or you've at least met some? Does your CTO have a brain-slug? Has he been drooling a lot lately?

Joking aside, whose benefit do you imagine such a half-arsed policy is in aid of? Yours? HOW? Think it through, goddammit.

* n.b. it helps if the algorithm is passable. Yours isn't. It sucks hairy donkey balls
Ok, this does it for me, I never had a problem with this on the desktop as it just kept playing songs from the same artist as I were listening to.
Recently it start playing random bullshit that does not interest me at all- and initially I noticed this on the android client, but now I see it's the same for the desktop.

So after about 5 years as a paying member I decided to move else where and terminate soundcloud subscription, this is absolute bullshit.
It seems that if the auto play can't be disabled, youtube might be a better platform to upload songs. Youtube does have the option to disable auto play.
The idea that a feature that force-feeds you stuff, and that even if you turn it off switches itself back on again, can be 'to allow you to explore SoundCloud' is totally wrong-headed. It is annoying beyond description.
This "feature" effing blows chunks.
WTF??? Came here from YouTube because I thought this is a music people platform. Crappy autoplay is like mainstream bullshit radio playing music for people who just want some fluffy background noise and not music.

Also thought about upgrading in support of the hard working artists. Autoplay is no hard work :(

Will switch to somewhere else.... and stay with Spotify
Try this:

1. Press ‘q’ to bring up the “Next up” list.
2. Click the “Clear” button.
3. Turn off the “Autoplay station” control.
4. Press the X control to close the list.

This will do it, but only temporarily. If you refresh, or even click to a new track, the “Next up” list refreshes as well and you’ll need to go through the steps again.

Disable autoplay nextup station right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please disable autoplay, dont become facebook and other b//sh// that force to see what they want
Hey BlkCruelt,

Sorry to hear you're not enjoying the continuous play feature. The intention of the feature is to allow you to explore SoundCloud while continuously listening to sounds from your Stream. Please rest assured that the tracks that play will relate to tracks on your Stream and your 'Likes', they won't be totally random. It currently is not possible to disable this.


This is a lie. The music that is played in NOT related in any way. Upload a Christian song and tag it and the music that comes after it is ALWAYS the same songs, and they have dirty mouths. Very offensive language. Give me a break!. I just signed up and I am already ready to leave. This is why you are failing.
dudes just share your stuff on clyp .it and use soundcloud as a link to your profile...


I am fed up with Soundcloud bs.

This "feature" has been requested 2 years ago! to write a code for it is MAX half an hour..... they just messing with u ppl.
I'd also like to add my name to the list of people requesting a way to prevent autoplay.

I'll be looking for an alternative platform.
Yikes, when I first encountered this thread that started over a year ago, I thought "surely Soundcloud has fixed this egregious problem by now", but nope. Not being able to turn autoplay off makes it embarrassingly inconvenient and crappy. Also, potentially speaker and ear damaging if the next song is quite loud. Just have a big obvious button so people know how to turn it back on if they really want this feature - you don't have to hide the option inside preferences.
Why is Soundcloud so stubbornly ignoring this issue? Where possible, when someone gives me a soundcloud link, I'll see if I can find the same song on another service that starts with an S - a service which allows me to choose whether I want auto-play on or off. Trust me, if I want to be fed new music, I'll ask for it.

I cannot tell you how much I fucking hate "Your Woman (White Town Cover) - GYM" that ALWAYS auto-plays after my like list ends. I do not want that song to play now or ever. If I could stop auto-play, my problem would be solved. And the argument that auto-play helps listeners discover new music is bs. Every time my little like list ends, this fucking song plays next. I've heard it, I hate it, and I never want to hear it again. If I could block a song, I would. Or I could just disable auto-play... oh wait, no I can't because I'm not allowed to.

Eric Wahlforss, if you're still there, why do you hate your users? You can have auto-play on by default, but give us a choice to disable it. I know it's within your technical abilities...:@
everything I have liked may not be acceptable for all audiences. I am now very limited in when and where I can listen to a sound cloud link because I really don't know what might start playing at full volume next. I have been told by friends on facebook that they don't click on soundcloud links that I may post for just this reason. I can't tell you how much I dislike this "feature"

This is still happening on the website version, PLEASE REMOVE THIS P.O.S. FEATURE!
I had at one point set my sound cloud so that I would not be shoved into another audio once the once I was listening to finish. That seems to have been unset. Please help.

They've added the feature to disable auto play for iOS, but not Android, which I currently use. Why haven't you added it for Android? It makes no sense. It seems you're catering towards your iOS users more than the Android users. 😠

You can try our alternative (unofficial) SoundCloud player https://cloud-player.io where you have the option to play only one track
