News from SoundCloud. We’ve built an app that seamlessly fits into your gaming experience and with access to millions of songs, you’ll never miss a beat. Xbox One users can download the app from the Xbox App Store and easily begin creating soundtracks that will get you in the zone and level up your gaming.
Whether you’re a SoundCloud Free, SoundCloud Go, or SoundCloud Go+ user, you’ll be able to listen to your favourite tracks, playlists and our brand new feature, The Upload, while you game. And you can control playback with the sound of your voice using Cortana to play and skip tracks without leaving the game.
Get your game face on and download it now from the Xbox App Store :-)

- Search: Access to the ever improving search functionality with top results

This app is available in all territories, but Go+ subscribers will have access to the full catalogue only where Go/Go+ plans are available for purchase. Free users will not be able to upgrade through the app right now, but can use the app without a Go subscription. We will not have any offline listening functionality for the time being.
