Im not sure if the above has been asked and answered ?

If these articles below are true, how will it affect a free user ?
or will be that be the end of a free user accounts?

I would say the removal of the play button on social media is part of the preparation for the new subscription service, hence only paid members get to play, is this true soundcloud?

It would be nice for you guys at soundcloud to answer the above questions honestly rather than giving us the run around.

Hey ChinaTown,

Thanks for pinging, not all posts revert back to 'needs attention' as they should when a comment comes back.

Yes, there will still be Free accounts. When all details are finalised and ready to roll we will be announcing on our blog: https://blog.soundcloud.com/

I'm out for the day but if you have additional questions, ill be back tomorrow same time, same place ;)

Cheers for the reply Gina,
So just to be 100% clear will there still be free user accounts that will have full access to play everything within SC?

Im just asking the above, because you didnt make it totally clear in your reply that there will still be free users accounts or not .

Hi ChinaTown,

Yes, there will be a subscription plan coming later in the year and no, it is not related to the recent changes around sharing to Facebook. Please let me know if I can help in any other way.

AND many tunes will go back to being un HERD .....
