SoundCloud has rolled out a new integration with Snapchat, which builds on last week’s launch of Sounds, a new feature that lets the social media platform’s users add music to their Snaps.
Snap Inc stated that it secured multi-year deals with a number of major and independent publishers and labels to launch Sounds, including Warner Music Group, Merlin (which includes their independent label members), NMPA, Universal Music Publishing Group, Warner Chappell Music, Kobalt, and BMG Music Publishing.
Beginning today (October 27), SoundCloud users can share any track, playlist, album or artist profile from SoundCloud’s full 200 million-track catalog to Snapchat. This integration was previously announced in June.
In addition, announced today and rolling out soon, SoundCloud users will also be able share any track, playlist, album or artist profile from SoundCloud’s catalog to Facebook Stories
To share music from SoundCloud to SnapChat or Facebook Stories, you’ll need the latest version of the SoundCloud app.
Find the track, playlist, album or artist profile you want to share, tap the share icon, and then tap the Snapchat or Facebook icon, or select “Share to Snapchat” or “Share to Facebook” depending on your device.
