For creators… 

New upload flow

As part of our improved web experience, artists can now opt-in to try out our new upload flow.Currently limited to single tracks with basic track data, we’ll be supporting multi-track upload and additional advanced data in follow-up releases. Watch this space in the coming months.

You’ve gotten playlisted 🎉

Every artist wants to get playlisted, it means their sound is resonating with real people and could reach more future fans. But in the past creators were never notified if their tracks were featured on a playlist. Thankfully we’ve changed that: now any artist featured on a SoundCloud Discovery playlist will receive an email letting them know and congratulating them.   

Other Updates… 

New followers by Link Sharing 🔗

With 30 million shares happening on mobile platforms monthly, social sharing is a powerful gateway to foster more onsite connections. Now, when a user lands on SoundCloud through a shared link, they are prompted to follow the link sharer if they haven’t already. 

Updated search experience on Android

In case you missed it, we’ve redesigned our search landing page to make navigating our catalog easier. Android users can now enjoy a streamlined design, genre-based categories, and a more intuitive flow. With over 375 million tracks on SoundCloud, it's easier than ever to find what you’re looking for.
