We absolutely need this.
Also important to me.
Please prioritize
Anyone who feels strongly about this feature, please ping the Soundcloud CEO and founders on twitter (@alexanderljung , @ericw)with a polite and friendly message and mention the URL of this issue. Also tag @SoundCloud and @SCsupport. Hopefully we can generate enough attention to prioritize this feature. Let's be polite and courteous to make the message effective.
So it's been 7 months since this thread was addressed and the noat recent comment was 20 days ago. I think its safe to say sound cloud is not making this a priority no matter what we say. Also with the shift of hardware having more and more internal storage people don't experience this.

With a phone that has minimal internal 10gb storage but large external storage (64+gb) this problem shows itself almost immediately , but with a large internal storage phone 64+gb it's not as noticeable.

There is a good chance we won't sever see this addressed with the shift in phone design.
Decided to give Go a shot but after realizing this immediately canceled my subscription.
This is a no-go.

I use soundcloud as my primary source for music at the moment, because a lot of small and/or local artists are not on Spotify and the ability to post (re-)mixes and sets creates a creative environment that I do not want to miss.

The only thing that was missing in this was the ability to listen to music while not being connected to the internet. So when I saw today that something like SoundCloud Go existed--apparently it was only made available in Germany a week ago--I immediately got a subscription! But, as soon as I looked into the options of this service, my enthusiasm was reduced to nothingness, because I was not able to designate my SD card as the storage location for offline listening!

Holy shit, everybody with a smartphone uses a SD card to expand storage capacities, especially those of us who do not own a 600€ phone with 64GB of internal storage! I want to download and listen to more than 1 GB, which is what's left of my internal storage! I want to download playlists full of sets and tracks that I can listen to while offline! I am willing to pay for this! Please, this such a simple thing to ask!

I found this old thread and I cannot believe, that this issue was raised over seven month ago and all we heard is this one small comment about relaying it to the coders.

Please, please, pretty please, for the love of god, sort this shit out, it's not much to ask!
No one is giving this thread any attention. We need another way to bring this problem to light

Yes and it's simply audacious that this topic is flagged as solved, or is this simply due to it's age?

Will opening an new and fresh thread solve the issue? I don't know how to get the attention of the moderators and the staff at soundcloud any other way, since I do not use twitter or anything(those who do, luc-wastiaux up there had the right idea). I also can't believe that there is only such a few number of people who have this problem. If it's really only in the low hundreds, like the view count of the thread suggests, I would not have my coders take this issue on if I was someone who does not have his/her community in mind.
Go ahead and start a new thread I'll chime in there.

Also this problem is less important to a lot of people that don't use external storage and have large internal storage. Like an iPhone or the new galaxy phones. Just my thought, no evidence.

Anyway I hope we can lead this charge and succeed !!!

I only recently found out about SoundCloud Go and was happy to learn that I would finally be able to listen to music offline, now also as a german user.

However, when I got the Go subscription I was shocked to learn that there is no way for me to designate the sync storage location to an SD card. I have minimal internal space, since my phone is not of the newest variety and I am not willing to waste a ton of money on something with adequate internal storage space, since I have the ability to simply expand mine with an SD card.

What I want to say is: I am not able to use the offline sync feature, the only feature that I need from SoundCloud Go, which is also the only feature that I am willing to pay monthly subscription fees for. Which means: For some of us, Go is completely useless.

A thread discussing this problem was opened eight month ago, was flagged as solved after a moderator said he'd relay the issue, but nothing happend.

Can we get an update on whether this issue will be adressed? This is the only thing that I care about in Souncloud Go. I love Soundcloud and the music community it helped create. I discovered an endless stream of fantastic music that I'd never find anywhere else. It provided thousands upon thousands of musicians with a platform to share their art and make new friends to create even more fantastic music in collaboration.

This small feature would make my experience with soundcloud complete, since I finally wouldn't have to stop listening to music when offline. Is that too much to ask or too hard to understand?

Here's the new thread:

Let's hope someone's going to read it!

I was one of the first to comment on this thread. I just wanted to let everyone know I have signed up for spotify premium instead since this has not been fixed and there has been no update from Soundcloud. Everyone I know uses soundcloud downloaders and free accounts if they aren't on spotify. What a waste.

The issue revolves around being able to 'save' songs offline onto my Android device. Basically, pressing the save offline option does not work when pressed. I get a solid grey arrow next to the selected song indicating that have no internet connectivity when in fact I've exclusively tried to save songs over my home Wi-Fi. Any ideas as to what the problem might be?
Note: I recently reinstalled the app (+ cleared the app cache) and now *all* my previously offline playlists are now only available online. Bit miffed, mainly because I am a Soundcloud Go subscriber and it's been a seamless experience thus far. However, with this development it kind of defeats the point of having a subscription in the first place.
I never really gave it much thought initially, but over the course of past few days the problem has persisted. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hey I've a question, as a Soundcloud Go user does "PREVIEW" come in your end?

B ~

Not that I can say. Do you mean for individual songs (e.g. Song "xyz (PREVIEW)")?

Hey Dre,

Sorry to hear you are facing this issue. If the issue persists after deleting the app, restarting your phone, then reinstalling, please let us know your device model and operating system so we can report to our engineers.

Other than that, here's some more info around offline listening, and how to troubleshoot it.

Hope this helps!

We need this feature! I'm not buying GO+ until I can download my songs to my sd card...
