  • Great app, love it! But a problem or 2


    By AnnamarieMurrayTrueCrimeFan
    First off, SoundCloud is great, I have been listening to it for like- ever basically, but the ads, I'm always stressing to click next song because a thirty second non skippable 'vaping can ruin your brain' ad would come on, you used to be able to skip them for five seconds after it starts, and now it doesn't work?? I end up breaking the SoundCloud system and skipping it myself (I'm not going to say how because I feel like SoundCloud would fix it lol) but for someone who barely has time to listen to music on a car ride, it's annoying to get a thirty second ad, I'm fine with an ad or two, just not like- a non skippable one in between two songs, I really like sound cloud, but the vape ads pop up constantly, I am a teen myself, and I guarantee those ads barely help, I don't vape but I'd probably continue doing it if those ads kept popping up since it's annoying, but I love SoundCloud, even a bunch of songs I liked I discovered on here, I like some ads on here that are funny, but please try to make the ads more spaced out, the only issues I have are with the ads, other then that it's a good app, but I'm not paying for Go.
  • Great app except one thing.


    By HotWheels_Beast
    The app works great, in my opinion it’s the best music app ever. It’s free and can actually pick what song you want to listen to whenever you want to listen to it, all with very little ads. You can pay to have the app ad free but no need for that. Also when you pay you can download songs for offline listening but I’ve noticed that if you put a song on a playlist and listened to it before at least once that it doesn’t have to load the next time you listen to the song so there is no need for paying. The only bad thing is there is this one thing called SoundCloud weekly on the homepage and it recamends you songs... but all the songs are usually really old like 1-3 years old, so I would like if it would recommend songs that are newer. Other than that if you live in a family that has very little money and you love to listen to music like I do (bus ride to school, bus ride home, when I play basketball, when I wanna jam out) and stuff like that it’s perfect. So SoundCloud if you see this please keep the app the way you have it. But maybe different color ways. I like when music apps change their color ways!
  • Very good but some issues


    By datboi667
    So I’ve been using this app for the past 3 years and it has been amazing, but somethings I would wish could change as well as some issues I’ve ran into. The first thing is the UI, if I type in a song and I spell it wrong I wish it could put up something close to that and not say “ No Results”. Second thing is that I wish when you went into your saved playlist that you would start at the bottom or the newest song and not the top, but those I can live with so I own an IPhone X, I’m not showing off or anything but this thing has amazing speakers and for some reason when I play a song it crackles and pops which is soooo annoying, I’m an audio geek and I can not listen to a song when it cracks and pops it’s just infuriating. And the last thing is something that I’ve wanted for so long is to be able to post songs from your phone because not all of us own computers, and or laptops but the option to be able to post songs from your phone would be awesome. I hope you bring these ideas in consideration and hopefully are able to fix that bug but anyways I love this app and this is the only way to listen to songs that are posted by non singers or artists.
  • Very great but some difficulties


    By JayZuckerman
    Hello I’ve been a SoundCloud user since 2012 but didn’t really get into it until 2013. I would like to say SoundCloud is fantastic. However, I have problems listening to music without it cutting off every 30 seconds. Then once I press play, the same thing keeps happening. Also, as someone that makes music, I hate that there’s a pay wall behind me seeing simple things as who’s listening all over the world. Why should I by SoundCloud Go just to see things like that? The least I’m buying it for is playing music offline, that’s about it. Aside from that, I feel like SoundCloud Go is just not even worth it. I liked using SoundCloud until y’all introduced SoundCloud Go. Which basically limited us from listening to big artist on there giving us 30 seconds of a song just so we can buy that pay wall to listen to a full song we can listen to on other music apps. Not to mention the spotlight on our profiles. Are you seriously going to make us pay for that? That’s like paying $5 just to pin a tweet on Twitter. All I’m saying is I love SoundCloud, but I can’t stand it when they’re trying to beat around the bush just to make us pay for something.
  • 🤦🏽‍♂️


    By CFC1025
    I have been a Soundcloud Go user for several years now. I have no problem paying for this subscription because I love this app, however there are issues which I feel if addressed, could make this app much better. For years I have dealt with tracks out of my likes being deleted or removed. I understand many of these tracks are leaked and therefore are not supposed to be on the app, however this is not the case for all songs that are removed. There is nothing worse than wanting to listen to a song and not being able to find it. Out of my 1,500 + likes I cannot remember the names of all songs I like. I believe if these tracks are deleted it would be very helpful that instead of them simply being taken down, they should still exist in your likes, even if you can’t listen to them. This way, I’m not really losing my music. I’d still be able to find the songs elsewhere, it’s just so frustrating having music disappear. Please address this issue. Also fix your search algorithms!! Neither of these issues seem like they would be difficult to address. Please fix for the sake of users!! Makes me rethink paying my subscription.
  • Sad


    By esl_209
    I’ve had this app for around 3 years and I had around 300 sounds that I had in my liked section because all of them wouldn’t fit in a playlist and I was okay with it. During those 3 years I loved it because I like underground rappers starting from SoundCloud and rising to the top and I would always search for new artist just so I wouldn’t have the same music as everybody else and I’d always show my friends and they’d always ask who it is and for me that’s a compliment cause putting someone on a new artist always makes me feel like that boy. But anyways a couple days ago when I was going to show my friend a couple new songs I found I went to the like section and all of my music that I had liked were gone. All those 3 years of searching for new music that little to no one has heard before done the drain and y’all don’t know how sad I felt cause now I’m never going to get to listen to those songs again because I dug really deep to find them and I’m not going to waste my time searching for it again. Soundcloud staff members, if you happen to see this please pleaseeee let me know if there’s anyway you guys can get my music back that’s all I want😭
  • wow, i’m really frustrated


    By ateallthefood😴😧😪
    okay so i always fall alseep with music on and i suddenly realized that my songs were cutting short, so i go to the app and look at my 200 sum playlist and OVER HALF of my playlist is go+ and i was listening to the whole songs earlier today. i understand y’all need to make money but clam down all my Phora, Russ, billie, peep, and some of my other songs are all go+ i need to listen to my music and i don’t have any money literally i can’t pay for music that’s why i use sound cloud but now that over half my playlist is just go+ i guess i’m going to have to listen on yt and i hate listening on yt bc you can’t go off of it i can’t sleep with music on in yt so i wish that you would take go+ off of songs cause i could easily stop using soundcloud i don’t want to but if i can’t listen to my music i’ll have to compromise and i love soundcloud don’t get me wrong but omg y’all non of my songs are longer than a preview and i hope you guys can take the go+ off songs i’m so sick of my songs being 30 sec long so please listen to me, because i speak for millions you should get enough money from people using your app? come on y’all
  • App terrible interface but desktop great! Make them the same!


    By Music computer guy works great
    The app is so terrible compared to the desktop version. The searches never come up the they do on desktop, I never see my page with my spotlight 5 tracks when I open it up, i have to scroll forever just to get to what is normally right there on my desktop.... the app gets ZERO. As an artist and some one and I are talking about music and who I like and what I sound like I’d like to be able to easily show them or find the name of the musician I was listening too earlier that day etc. I have more specific complaints but these are the ones that come to mind. The ‘usability’ and ease of interface is just terrible on the app version. I gave an 8 or something for the recommendation of SoundCloud to people but , it would have been a 10 if the stupid interface on the app wasn’t so clunky. The two interfaces (desk and app) should look and work essentially the same. A girl told me it was impossible for her to figure out how to repost my song on the app version. she gave up in frustration. In some way that reflects on me and I lost a precious repost. Also I’d like to be able to link my two accounts , even if it is just slightly more a month to have both on premium. That last note is not about the app obviously. Thanks for listening.
  • Ads!!!!!!!!!


    By Merakkii
    I love the music I can find on the SoundCloud platform but I cannot STAND the way you have set up users to consume ads! Firstly, there used to be a way to skip most ads after 15 seconds but that feature seems to have been completely removed. Next, you guys place an ad after almost EVERYYYYY song and not to mention the fact that you also have put ads BEFORE a song plays when you manually change songs! The app is only good because of the ARTISTS music that we have access to, but this app/platform is losing me day-by-day and makes me want to download the music and get off the app altogether!!!!!!! Lastly, one of the most annoying parts of your ad setup is the fact that when you do click another song and an ad plays——— YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE *BLEEPING* APP!!!!! You HAVEEEE to let the 30 second ad play fully in its entirety with no ability to skip halfway through or to close the app to listen while continuing to do something else on another app like most do! I guess you can just do like me and close/relaunch the app a million times but it’s getting absolutely so ridiculous and frustrating that I had to let SOMEONE who might be involved in this terrible setup know it needs to be fixed or DRAMATICALLY reduced!!!!!!!
  • Mobile App Bugs


    By Baconherobt
    I’ve been experiencing two separate issues. The first one happenes when I’m streaming SoundCloud via blue tooth and the mobile app gets stuck in a loop. It plays the song then an ad and then the same song again and the same ad. So far the only way I have figured out to cancel the loop is to restart the app. The second issue I’m experiencing is (and it’s fairly difficult to explain) when ever I create a station from a song I like on the mobile app, it creates a station but down at the bottom of the screen where it shows the playlist for the station, it queues up some where between two and seven copies of the same song. All the copies of the song play at one time, but audio wise, only one plays. This problem does not stop when I close and restart the app, and it seems to happen to any song, even ones that are not in my “Likes”. I really enjoy SoundCloud, and it is my first choice when deciding what platform to listen to music on and it’s always disappointing to discover a bug. That being said, thank you for taking the time to read this.
