SoundCloud has millions more tracks than other music services, thanks to its huge base of creators. That's an advantage unless you're a user trying to find great new music; and then it's overwhelming. SoundCloud launched The Upload to solve that, as well as provide a new discovery opportunity for artists.
A day after slashing the price of new 3 month subscriptions to just $1, SoundCloud has launched The Upload, a new discovery that delivers a daily playlist of the newest music uploaded to the platform, personalized to each user's taste.
The Upload is available via the Discover tab on web, and in the Search tab on iOS and Android. It works by recommending tracks that have been uploaded to SoundCloud within the last few days based on what the user has liked and and listen to.
"With a constantly expanding mix of music uploaded to SoundCloud every day, we’ve now made it easier to filter through it all," said SoundCloud in the launch announcement. "The Upload is all about surfacing more of what you’re into, or what you might be, and is the go-to destination for a regularly updated, bespoke playlist of new music relevant to you... This new feature is another opportunity for creators on SoundCloud to get their music heard by our global community and a great way for listeners to be on the pulse of what’s next, now."
