Absurd amount of ads! Every 3 songs there is a ad! Literally it's so annoying. If you want to make this app enjoyable than remove that! Ads are fine as long as it isn't in your face every other minute especially when there is more than one which are 20-30 seconds long!
The only music app that ever worked for me. Showed me stuff i actually wanted to listen to, works perfectly with no annoyances or bugs, and is overall a very smooth experience! Also a random song recommendation from this app made me discover my favorite music genre and artists, which then led to a series of events that completely changed my life lmao, so i truly cannot recommend it enough. While it might not change *your* life, it's still pretty damn good.
Was working fine before the update now it just stays on the start screen and doesn't come off it so I can't listen to my music other then this I had great experiences with the app but this just brought it down for me it needs to be fixed
New update works terrible. I can't open the app no matter what I try. It goes to the loading screen and either crashes or freezes. This app was part of my lifestyle(+4 hours a day) please make it usable! I have an old andriod aswell, as the other person with this issue reported too
I always liked the app, but lately it's been crashing for no particular reason, the app doesn't even open at all, it just stops working before even charging the main screen, I've seen some people with the same issue, I don't know if it's a problem with my phone or the app itself, my phone is a Moto from the year 2016 I would say
Kudos to the developers of sound cloud they've really done a Great job with their designs and my user experience so far has been great..you being able to comment at a specific time in the beat is also great...I just got attached to sound cloud because of a beat album by KaYSam Teknik (Moods)....and from there I've been a fan of beats rather than real music ..i think the beats are real music...shout outs to KaYSam Teknik
SoundCloud is my only fav song app and it is not working since yesturday and keep on crashing and today when. I reinstalled it ... It says when in the opening we see logo it didn't proceed after that .... Kind of y resolve my issue I love listening song here even after staying offline I love this app ...
Every since the lastest update this app has been crashing almost 100% of the time I try to open it, the app was fine before but now I have to try to open the app a million times to get it to not crash and let me use it.
Was having a fun time listening to music for hours and then it randomly told me my account wasn't working and it signed me out, I got back in the app and tried signing back in but it said that they couldn't find my account then I tried creating an account and it said the same thing. :( Hope y'all can fix that, but other than that I loved it, there wasn't much adds.
The app is great don't get me wrong i love it to death! But i updated my soundcloud and now it won't let me into the app, which is very disappointing because this is one of the only apps that let me listen to music offline without making me pay and thats fantastic but this bug is really irritating, ive re-installed the app three times and powered on and off my phone but yet i sill get an orange screen that just sits there. Forever. If this didn't happen i would keep it at 5 stars
SoundCloud is Awesome, but app does not work after last 2 updates (for musicians). Sound Quality 😎🔥👍. All uploaded band songs disappeared from the app- please fix. Have to use browser to share the songs. (2) No ISRC song credit meta-data support from the app. Can only add song meta-data from browser, to receive any royalties from streaming. For others and I, please fix. Thank you for helping to share the Music... 😎🤘.
This used to be my favorite app. There is a ton of diversity in the music available, and the user-oriented posting allows a lot of underground artists to shine. My issue is that my account randomly got deleted with no warning or anything with THOUSANDS of songs on about 12 different compiled playlists that took me years to put together. No clue as to why or how this happened, I reached out to support and still have head nothing. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
it was overall good... except that some songs weren't available for me but it was fine... recently Whenever i try to open soundcloud it doesn't respond. I tried reinstalling too but whenever i open it, It doesn't respond. I can't find any other app like soundcloud. Fix it as soon as possible.
This isn't a review, more so just a complaint even if it isn't your guys' problem. I've been using this app for a good while and it's been running great! Up until where today since the new update came, and it absolutely broke my app, can't even open it through the home page and the play store, I even tried reinstalling the app and that didn't fix it. I hope you can either reply or give me a solution for this problem as i want to keep using this app.
My always Go To music app for listing music❤️ Even if I have the youtube premium subscription or amazon music subscription I still always come back to this app in search of good music/songs. The recommendations are also good except for sometimes it sucks but so does the YouTube. Greatful for this app. Thanks!🤗 Just in case I have written this review after using this àpp for about 4 years (maybe even more than that).
SoundCloud over Spotify any day. It seems like with SoundCloud that you get more songs from the unknown artists as they're just starting to gain popularity or noticing by the people so far so good with this app concerning music and one one of many contacts with other people who have the same likes as you and music and stuff so so far so good with the SoundCloud that I I my opinion is and look forward to others to come to see what has grown from their use knowing of Spotify doesnt compare 2SCloud
It's a great place to find new, undiscovered talent and unique music! It's also fantastic for sharing your own music and gaining new fans! Their promotional tools are reasonably priced and can really help boost your presence fast!
I wish there was a way to download podcasts, Not just stream. Being a Trucker. I lose signal occasionally. Then the streaming stops. So annoying. If I could DL when the signal is good. Then losing signal while driving wouldn't matter.
Sound Cloud is indeed a very good music app, it's great feature is that we can even hear remix song or custom made songs which cannot happen in Spotify which I like most of it. Plus there is no ads which makes it more better and premium.
I like this app very much before. It used to has lyrics, free listen to all songs it has, much much shorter ads. But now... App can't be getting worse,I guess it's intentionally lessen for Spotify
Good app, but when using WIFI (ultra fast fiber optic) it takes ages for the song to start playing and some time it tells me the track isn't available but plays well on cellular network, not happy
The app is fine being on the platform for a few years for my experience but this update has made it crash every time i open the app.it keeps saying that "unfortunately,soundcloud has stopped working".it's either my phone that is old and can't handle so much of the data it holds,or there's something wrong with the app itself.now I'm not pointing fingers but i could say that it's my phones fault for being old (2014-)
It's simply amazing, apart from the occasional "Not available in your country" restriction. It is also a good way for music artists to gain fame and also find new amazing and talented musicians. Although, sometimes, Spotify comes top because some of the artist don't post here and SoundCloud is community driven platform
This app is great for listening to music, you can make Playlist easily, find music you want easily and the ads are not bad. 10/10 experience. (No not paid or a bot, the app is just really good)
Generally good. However, since update of 02.06.22, it gives constant error messages, "Unfotuneately Soundcloud has stopped" on Android 6.0.1 (not upgradrable). So I'm going to have to uninstall until this gets fixed.
difficult to use when trying to connect to airplay or google. would also be nice to be able to controle music and volume on a pc via the mobile app, like spotify. would make the experience much userfriendly
It's a great program but I only gave three stars because it stops running so much on its own and when II pause it, it also shuts down and I have to Login to run it from the app again, this really annoys me
Great app, not only can i listen to a lot of songs i can listen to podcasts and a whole bunvh of other sounds aswell... Only sad thing it you have to pay to listen to verry well known and popular songs.. For instance: Smash mouth - All star.
honestly I have no problems with this app, I've even started to prefer it other spotify, it doesn't have as many ads and you can even upload your own songs if you want. this app is pretty cool :)
The app has barely changed at all over the years, yet it updates ALL the time. It's seriously fragmented from one platform to another. They are all different & none offer the exact same capabilities! They put ZERO effort into making your experience one that is unified and comfortable for you. Options that you like may be completely different or just absent from platform to platform! Years of mediocrity, and still in BETA? 4.7 Rating, sure, thanks to all the bot reviews!
I would have given this app five stars but, what happened was terrible. So I was just listening to music on my phone with this app (I fall asleep with music), so then all of a sudden the audio goes blank. At first I thought my phone died, but then I check and it wasn't. So instead I tried to get on the app to start the music again, so I click the app it loads, then boom! It straight up kicks me out the app, at that time I was mad but also frustrated. So then I went to the store to report this.
It's alright. One of my favorite things about this app is the simplistic ui that doesn't overcompete for my attention from other streaming apps... Unfortunately the ads have become 1 bit away from being literally unbearable. *AND I CANT CHANGE SONGS FOR 15 SECONDS? Nah, demoted from 3 stars. C'mon Sound Cloud, I love ya but... This experience should be butter smooth by 2022.
used soundcloud for nearly a decade. the app wont stop playing media when answering calls or opening a different app like youtube. kind of annoying but i used to so it may just be a bug in this current version.
Auto plays song when connecting to car's Bluetooth. This is absolutely annoying!!! SoundCloud is NOT my default music app yet no matter what I do, clear cache, force stop the app, etc., It STILL RESUMES THE SONG LAST PLAYED ON THE APP. PLEASE be like the other apps and have a feature where you can toggle this on and off. I want to delete SoundCloud for this reason but I use it too much.
Guys i like this app can you please make it available on smart watches i don't want to move to another app .and even better can you save playtime for podcasts like YouTube history for videos you can resume from whereever device, will be great... if you don't want resume playback for music atleast make it optional like for media 10min+
It's a good app but y'all really need to drop the whole go plus thing especially for the people out there who are broke (like me) I'm not about to pay for music I can just as easily go on youtube and listen to it there. I'd rather use Spotify.
I love this app, it is my favorite except if you don't pay for the subscription then some songs won't play example Zro - Happy Alone. But this is my favorite music player and I love hearing creators and what they put out as well.
Not Playing Songs Past 3 seconds or less. Soundcloud has been having this issue for me for a while. I will try to play a song and it either won't start playing or it will play until 3 seconds, and then it won't play. If I'm lucky, it will get through a 30 second track, but only once. It sucks because during the entire pandemic I would basically play music from my soundcloud playlist all the time. I'd rather download the tracks with the online soundcloud downloader anyway, ads aren't worth it.
This app just started auto playing every time i get in my car. And after i stop it, if i get a phone call, it just starts playing on it's own for no reason over my phone call. I literally couldn't connect a call today because every time i called, soundcloud started auto playing again. I'll have to delete this app until they fix this bug.
a few days back I was able to forward nd backward how ever i wanted to listen to the song at which point of time but suddenly its not showing on lockscreen ( it was easy to play the same song again From where i wanted to listen to through LOCK SCREEN. WITHOUT OPENING. BUT NOW I AM UNABLE TO.
Honestly, the app is a useless mess. Not sure what happened but the new UI is a joke. Can't find anything. Music only plays for a preview then on to another song. Is it something I am doing? No way this ever got approved by someone who earns a living building products. UGH.
SCAM! I paid to get the premium features, especially the offline option... but it doesn't work. I even tried to go directly go to the website on my computer. They just took my money. I feel scammed! EDIT: It's even worse than that. First, the "Go" version doesn't give you access to the full catalog AND some of the songs have the download feature disabled (but you can't find out until after you've PAID them) AND there's no way to filter out songs you can't download. DO NOT PAY FOR THIS.
Been a fan of this app since it was first lunch, What i dislike is not being able to listen tracks from a different country some artists or songs are not available in my region, I live in Mexico I believe that it shouldn't be an issue, but it's comprehensive & I respect the freedom of the artists but once again if you allow them to listen to your music in different parts of the world you would have more support from fans! & thank you soundcloud for making my ears bleed cuz i use u a lot!!!
Works. great. Plays for hours without having to interact with the app. Haven't noticed adds yet, but maybe I'm still in an intro mode as I don't use it often.
It's now playing ads, sometimes two, on every single song. I would literally rather never listen to music again for the rest of my life than listen to an ad before every single song. The whole point of music is to relax, ads completely negate that, especially if they are as long as an actual song itself.
This has been my main source of music since I was little. And it honestly brought me the best music I've heard. Got alot of memories stored here. Alot of inspiration i got from here. Despite how under the radar SoundCloud is and how memed it is. It will always remain my favorite. Plus it allowed me to get into music that no one heard of.
The reason why I rate this app 5 star is that it's not like Fire Fox nor Pandora where you literally have to unpause the music and then can listen to music in the background, or one second ur listening to one music and then outta nowhere, you suddenly get switched to another song made by another artist that is similar with the artist you are currently listening to but either also like or don't like. That is a whole 11 paragraph reason on why I think this app is the best for listening to music.
App used to be great. Simple and streamlined. Now.. constant playback issues and user interface freezing with over abundance of interface selection for what should be a simple playback app. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling with same issues. Running an LGv60 2019 with all current software updates.
Long, long, long time subscriber. Given me so much joy over the years. Guys concentrate more on form than looks. The new style dashboard looks pleasing but too long to navigate. Old style required less touching of the screen. My opinion..
I absolutely adore this app. However, the ChromeCast support needs to be much, MUCH better. I deal with consistent skipping and glitches when trying to Cast music to my TV through ChromeCast. If connectivity support was better, I'd give 5 stars.
I love how it has background feature, but the only downside is that it takes FOREVER to load songs, and sometimes it'll just stop the songs. If that gets fixed I'll change my rating to 5 stars.
I like the Navigation, and you have a ton of free content. Only annoying thing is when a song is "not available in your location", but I'm not sure if that is SoundClouds fault?
What did you do to this app? The most recent update has destroyed it. I've been paying for this app for 5+ years and it's never been perfect, but this is unbearable now I haven't been able to listen to any music for more than 5 days now and it won't let me access any of the songs I have downloaded. If this is not fixed in 3 days I will be cancelling my subscription and moving services. you are abysmal now
Dude I've used soundcloud for like a decade, I still haven't switched to Spotify like pretty much everyone else, but why is casting so bad? what's with the 20 seconds of intense distortion and low quality? This isn't my device or app cos its carried over 3 different phones (s7 edge, s9+, p30 pro) Why are ads every like 2 songs at best? Why aren't desktop site functionalities available like changing pfp and sending messages? Why are notifs so broken? Bruh
I like this app. There are a couple ads, but only after a few songs. I like the top 50 weekly lists, by genres. I just wish there was one for industrial music. There is a search, but not for genres. You can search by song track/album/people/playlist.
This app is whack!!! Will not play music without watching ads and then after ad it just stops playing. Also everytime I turn off my screen it'll stop playing then if I press play it'll play the song until the end and then stop again. It wants me to watch an ad everytime a song ends. Pandora is better or even YouTube, this app has gone to trash!
Why it isn't on the lock screen? I want to pause and play without open app. It isn't define as music app in samsung phone. It can't use the same account in between devices so I have to create Many accounts on many devices. Very inconvenient
4 stars because for some reason, the songs Don't come up when we search. Sometimes it's at the bottom of the whole list when you're searching. And sometimes, when I search, an irrelevant song comes up. Overall, it's a nice app.
Mind-blowing app. It is a must have app for any music addict or music lover. I would even recommend it to aspiring DJs. There is so much original music on this app and so many talented artists that you cannot find on any other platform. There are numerous remixes of almost every famous song. Lots of covers also. This app will open up your world of music. There is a lot of music here which you cannot even expect to find.
SoundCloud is a very great app. But I'm having this issue not all music play some writing music writing not available in your country i have installed and install the app back still the same thing I don't know what the problem is you have to fixed it ...
Music does not stop when i lose internet connection for a 5 secs, the quality... It depends on the upload quality, song recommendation - could work better, but i really like some of "picked for you". And now, the greatest of all times, NO [email protected]
#$ ADS. It is beatin' spotify btw. No
I really that application, it's really interesting and I enjoyed it also it doesn't need a lot of network to work and it has different types of vibes, lyrics, songs, remixs and it has every thing you want I appreciate it and I really want everyone to true upploading this application
SoundCloud is a great app. Very useful for finding newer underground music, or using as a platform to distribute your own music. Only problem I have with it is at this point, it seems to be geared 99% towards rap and hip hop. On the main home screen, you won't see anything else as far as music goes. I have no problem with this music, but this used to be something that was geared towards all artists in all genres.
If you want the pull down window you have to turn on playback notifications. If you want it to keep playing after you close the app by mistake you're out of luck. It used to do that, but not anymore. I've tried every setting I could find; it's just not a feature anymore. If the Bedtime Stories podcast was available on another app I would switch in a heartbeat.
very mediocre controls, randomly starts playing tracks I have no interest in, awful history that forgets your place in a podcast or song way too often. in short, SoundCloud has a lot of work to do to catch up to the software standards of this decade.
I love using this music app it super easy. But now these past weeks there a recent problem that make it stop working and you can't listening to any other songs beside the first 20+ songs . A temporary solution is uninstalling and install it back but it keeps glitching again so this need to be fixed. I just don't get it if you go on the PC website it work fine it only the phone app that has issues.
Getting worse, tracks will intermittently skip. Very frustrating when I set a playlist or mix for a long distance run and half way into training the mix skips. Also the app plays songs over apps and I'm just frustrated and this is my last month of pro. I'll be switching platforms since patch after patch they STILL cannot get it right
I've been linked with SoundCloud for years before the app upgraded to paid subscription services and I am tremendously happy of its quality. When Shazam, Tidal, Napster or YouTube fails my searches, SoundCloud is my go-to for underground, new release/hidden music. It even provides versatile mixtapes and Throwback favorites.
Good app although not running well after the last update. When playing music via BT to an external speaker it doesn't pause when I answer a phone call. The music keeps playing in the ear piece. Also theres no longer an option to "add to up next" when viewing latest tracks from people you follow. Also some lock screen controls would be a good addition.
Well it really good and all you also don't HAVE to pay just to even be on the app unlike Spotify. But recently I have been having trouble like I would leave the tab open and then go draw on another tab well it keeps on closing the app and I have to relogin again, I can't even make it through a song when it dose this.its very annoying.
My kingdom for a settings menu! It is honestly embarrassing that this continues to be the least user friendly app I've used. Everything that you would WANT in a music app (the ability to easily jump to artist libraries, the ability to dislike/remove tracks/artists, the ability to use app features while an audio ad is playing...etc) is absent from this app. The UI is circa 2004 and hasn't evolved and there's a bug that puts a notification in my bar whenever my phone starts. Complete trash.
Best music app there is mainly because its got a good amount of every type of song and it cant be played while your screen is off. Another thing i like but i think wasnt meant to work is if you listen to a song online then go offline you can listen to that song or songs the entire time your offline but ot resets every time you come back online
WHY do I have to tap search TWICE to start typing!? For the second tap I have to adjust my grip to reach the search bar that has been so "conveniently" placed on top, as far away from my last tap to the magnifying glass as possible 🙆🤦 Can I get a job at your UI testing/design?
Really impressive app, with orginal and cover songs. Huge library and covers almost all my music taste. Best of all no adds. One suggestion add some filter that diffrenciates between covers and original songs.
Honestly, way better than Spotify in my opnion...Its free plan has ads and blocks some songs, yes. But it gives a LOT more flexibility playback wise AND gives listeners the ability to publish their own songs and such. I'm loving it so far! It's a great app 👌
I can find anything and I can create my own playlists and check out other playlists by other members and read comments on songs, it is allot of fun! I love it!! And it is Easy to navigate. the layout is simple. Good job SoundCloud!
Thanks for fixing the issues with the unexpected stops. All ads maybe annoying, but you put a reasonable amount and length which I utterly appreciate. I understand not being able to play some of the songs, ya'll aren't a non profit so you gotta make some money Unfortunately, I don't have the means to pay for how much I use this app, but thanks for making it a good experience anyways #Christian rap is on fire here 🔥🔥❤
Have been using SoundCloud for nearly a decade and it has always been great, but lately I am experiencing the same issue as some others here where the app has a bug and music continues to play over other apps and still continues to play when I take a phone call. Other than this issue I love the app. Always have and always will. Once this is fixed I'll change my review to 5 stars! Thanks SoundCloud team for everything over the last 10 years.
I've used SoundCloud for over 2 years and it's amazing unless you can't afford SoundCloud plus cause you can't access all the songs that are available. but other than that the sound quality is great and it's an easy to navigate app
Great platform. The ads are annoying, but I get that people need to make money somehow... also some odd UI things that don't make sense. But I have used SoundCloud since the beginning...
Almost awesome: It would be great if you could implement a feature which keeps you from unliking tracks. I don't know how many times I've opened my likes looking for a track only to find that I've accidentally bumped the unlike button and it's gone. I don't know how many tracks I've lost and still don't know. Perhaps a confirmation dialogue? Or maybe a long press instead of a tap?
There are issues with the sound when I play SoundCloud tracks through my Chromecast. I always listen to music this way because my TV is connected to my bose speakers. The sound is distorted and lags and it is basically impossible to enjoy the music, and sometimes it suddenly works fine... It only happens with the SoundCloud app so I think there is an issue specifically in the app. Would love to see this issue fixed in the near future, as this prevents me from using your app for music :/
I like this app but there are some problems. First of all i want to say there are no song download option but others platform have like deezer and spotify. And many songs i dont play because they show me this song is not available in your country. I wish soundcloud come back in future with many others new features update for better experience.
If I could give 0 stars an still a review I would. I've had SoundcloudGo for over a year, decide to remove it then all of the sudden none of my music plays at all even the songs that aren't Go exclussive. I'm gonna be switching to another platform an would highly recommend anyone else doing the same.
Like Spotify but even better. More music and kinda less adds.And unlike YouTube Music you can listen without having to be on the app or even off. Problem is whenever I am on a call it still plays which requires me to pause which sometimes I can't. Great work overall and once this bug is fixed, 5 stars.
With this new update that's come out today, songs I play from the search bar are randomly shuffled and similar songs are played. The songs are no longer played in descending order on the list. Quite annoying as this didn't need to be tweaked.
Guys there's a BIG problem with your App in Android 12 (Samsung OneUI 4.1). SoundCloud doesn't pause background play if I play a video in Youtube. I get 2 audio streams!! Correct behaviour is noted when BBC Sounds is playing and I play a YouTube video. BBC Sounds pauses background playback. First noted the problem when receiving a WhatsApp CALL while SoundCloud was playing in the background. SoundCloud only decreased its volume instead of pausing background playback. Behaviour good in Androi 8.
I pretty much exclusively use SoundCloud for my music, the quality and amount of available songs is great and the ads Aren't annoying for once! Only thing is that sometimes the playlists glitch out and you lose you spot in one and i wish the weekly reccommends were better and there were more reccomendations. Besides that, really good music app! My longterm favorite! Keep it up!
For using this app about a month or longer, I really enjoy it. it's better than spotify in my opinion bc it let's you choose your own music w/out premium! it does have ads but they dont last forever!I listen to music everyday with this app and it's really nice for school!
Personally had no ads, a much easier to use navigation than any other streaming service I have used, uses less data for the same quality (good for when you're in a bad-signal area), better radios, etc. The only annoyance is when songs are "Go+ only", but given that I'm not having to pay, this is fair-play.
exceptional,updated,containing all the music,sound and related stuff,easily accessible and operatable,fast speed.one advice and making soundcloud more extraordinary and highly rated app that tracks and the accounts of users and artist able to linked and shared with the other social media apps like faceboook,messenger,instagram,whatsapp and other apps to get more close to the different artists,singer,and other famous and those personalities which are not easily accessible.thank you👍♥️😊
Very nice app. I have just 1 problem. When I play the song kawaii by tatarka, if the song ends and I don't press a new song I want very quickly, it puts an ad up for a song I don't want. I try to exit out but when I go back to the app the ad keeps playing and I can't search any songs until the ad is over which is like 28 seconds long
It's a great app, plays with the screen off, good quality songs, you can create playlists and shuffle your songs. The only thing that annoys me a bit is that I can't change the name of my playlists. But overall I love SoundCloud.
Great app , the only thing I would suggest is to make background more stylish( fill in colors) , allow font change for list of songs and improve categorising songs . Like if I'm hearing Dua Lipa , that means I probably want to listen to her exclusively or some artists who make music equivalent to her style , so based on that the app must recommend me songs . Also personalized recommendations would be great . Overall , great app but requires bit more development
Exceptional Out Done Itself! Good Job to SoundCloud all by itself If you want Ad's free then subscribe and you'll get a great selections of music from SoundCloud. Everyone's platforms are Ad's within but realistically for music apps in selections you will find what others do not have here on SoundCloud. Thank you for reading this and God Bless from Bigcityjj100 to you all!
I love SoundCloud but recently there's been a bug where when you open any other app with sound And the SoundCloud will still continue to play the music over it. It will continue to play your music over any incoming call which is really annoying and potentially dangerous. Unnecessary multitasking. When this is corrected I will upgrade to a five-star.
SoundCloud is a really neat idea because it provides a place for new artists to share their music but also for the rest of us to find new and interesting sounds and songs to stream. We really enjoy using the mobile app. Listening, searching, and saving music was a breeze, but I also can't listen to some sound or songs which is not allowed for India.I feel a little bad for this thing.
Well! I do not use Spotify and do always recommend SoundCloud even if they are pretty different in the type of music they offer. Yet, SoundCloud does offer less choice of bands, musicians, artists well known for the good mixes they make... Please explain why are some songs not available in my country? I travel a lot so how do you decide which song in which country should I listen? What would be really practical is to be able to also remove songs from a playlist.
SoundCloud is the best way to start small and when work your way up there to the big and things yeah it may take time to get there but this app is great to used so easy to find things what I like about the app is that you can put your music into a station which is very awesome so its easily for people to find in a way but keep up the great work and app love it so much thanks
Was way better when it was 100% free. Still, I like SoundCloud because they have a lot of cool mashups and remixes no one else has. 100% ZERO ADS & make playlists, also all likes are saved in a playlist. Been using this app for...since 2011.
I find SoundCloud my first choice so far for listening music and organizing my favorite ones in Playlists. For places where similar applications, like Spotify, are not available or expensive, SoundCloud is the best solution. Thank you!
You can play your music in the background, pick individual songs, make playlists, and the ads aren't all that intrusive. All for free, it's amazing- until you realize that all the music you want to listen too is locked behind a paywall. It's good while it's free, but if I was willing to pay I'd just go to YouTube Music or Spotify.
Free plus easy search ups on songs i actually like... its rare to find a music app that dosent rip you off... tried spotify and i apparently dont even get the choice of songs i listen to without a paid subscription... thats just bad marketing tbh... its like saying i have to pay cash to decide what i wanna play on my own console... and if i dont ittle just randomly slot in whatever game i own...
I lock my screen, the music stops. I exit the app to enter a new one, the music stops. Constant buffering lately. not sure whats up but my laptop to my phone, shes slow! Also, please let me lock my screen and have the music continue to play.
Searched for offline music listening, this so popped up, and didn't play music offline. The app claimed that it needed an internet connection to access files. So upsetting. Good app otherwise. The music selection is wide. It works great online!
Omg....now almost 3 months and when u play music and get a phone call the music doesn't pause. It just keeps playing and also when you use Google assistant..this is absolutely horrible and dangerous when driving using hands free getting calls or using Google maps...fix this asap!!!!!!
Keeps randomly pausing and sometimes looks like it's playing but nothing can be heard. It's nothing to do with lack of signal or WiFi connection as I have tested this over time with other apps (Netflix and YouTube which immediately play high quality videos) and across multiple devices and WiFi signals. I have cleared cache, uninstalled, updated the app, update phone, switched from Huawei to Samsung and now I'm on a Google Pixel 6 and it's the same. Please fix and rating will be made 5* again.
I really like the selection of music in this app but I have problems. 1st is that some of my favourite music isn't in it. Second is the ADS THAT YOU GET MOSTLY BY CLICKING ON ANOTHER SONG YOU WANT. Third is that random music pop up outta nowhere like e.g. I click on A Woman from Persona 5 and it makes me listen to FNF's Expurgation. Why??? Get it outta here! But if you don't mind ads download this, don't let the 4.7 (right now) rating fool you, it is annoying to think games let this slide.......
Use to be a great app. Their development team is ruining the app; removed previous track button on notification window, added favorite button on notification window (now I can accidentally un-favorite my music) the list goes on....... Edit: I have adjusted my review because they've only further created problems for functionality/compatibility. From recent updates, you can see they're only focusing on UI design and promoting their paid subscription rather than creating a stable app.
Terrible interface - its now impossible to browse your stream due to enormous images showing up for every single track. I used to be able to quickly go through my stream and add a couple long tracks (30 minutes or longer) to my queue and rave through my work day. Now I'm bombarded with enormous pictures that make it difficult to see any information about the track, artist, or song length. Why fix what's not broken? Does anyone care about garbage album art for remixes and singles?
Very useful can listen to music offline once I've listened to the songs at least once with wifi. Easy to use and understand includes in app purchases and if you use wifi for the songs after every couple of songs there is an add which is disappointing
good spice of use for music here, you can do Library Access from the likes and music follows there. another feature is background is great for some folks, cause it is recommended to the battery usage or while having it on and not using allot of it. another thing is the scrolling stuff, it's cut for audio stabilizer and equaliator for detection of the sound itself playing. another one is discover, your taste of music can find which suits you best or kind of what's your interest. best app, 2017.
This app used to be good now its full of ads and you can't control or move anything while they are playing, I used to get the next song ready. Today I literally heard one song and I got 2 ads fix this soon or I will delete it. Thank you.
I enjoy listening to music on here, but recently the app on my device got a bug where it will play an ad but then won't move on from it, which means I can only play 1 track at a time before I have to close the app & then reopen it. I had a bug a few years ago, and it was easier to handle that process, but now the chatbot is mainly focused on copyright issues instead of bug reporting/fixing. The email response said they don't check emails from that address. I'll use the web version instead
The player will randomly stop playing? I'll have my phone screen off, it'll play for maybe 30 seconds, then shut off. This app used to run alright, its almost unusable and I'll most likely delete the entire app soon, as the frustration tends to outrule any good quality the app had.
I like this app I would love it even more if they add a loop for certain songs on the playlist like a button pressing the songs you want for sleeping then loop like 8 different song then creating a new playlist cause then I will have to make 9 different playlists so one playlist and press the songs you like then loop them hope you understand ❤️ Sometimes songs say not Available in your country then I go on a different device idk what's the problem tried YouTube nothing so I guess I deal with it.
Everything's a-okay other than the fact that the app will literally stop playing my song whenever it pleases and when I open the app to "unpause" my song, it's been randomized to some other song in the playlist. Idk if that rant was intelligible, but I hope it sums up how irritating the little glitch or whatever is >:/
App keeps closing anytime I open any other app on my phone. Even closes randomly when nothing else is even open. I've contacted support and followed all they're directions to resolve the issue and still have the same problem...the UI is a nightmare and they can't seem to fix these basic things even when I contacted support.
It's a good service! The only problem I have is that the music player in the notification bar tends to crash and stop if I'm off the app. It's slightly frustrating.
It's losing its connection with me. SoundCloud used to be great! In somewhat ways it still kinda is, but I'm really upset with them in taking away the opportunity of messaging someone privately. That was a good way in stating connected with artists you can network with. Now the only way to do that is by commenting for everyone to see. That's not really messaging!!! Could someone please contact me and explain how and why would you take away that feature? I'M REALLY UPSET ABOUT THAT! TY.
This is definitely one of my favorite music streaming apps, but unfortunately I ran into a bug while using this app. One of my playlists, which consisted of over 80 songs somehow got removed when I went to edit my playlist
very good app and all the music. however sometimes my music stops and I have to turn my phone on and it will continue playing. and it takes down unreleased songs. overall good app some faults.
The change of the flash page has made it a chore to navigate. I need to see the genre of songs, not every song posted by my favorite is my type of music. Also, when I slip to the next song its takes me away from the flash feed. The whole point of the flash feed to show me my curated list from artist I follow. I use the app less to discover music now I just go to their YouTube its less hassle
I love SoundCloud. I use all the time, even when I sleep. Recently a new update changed the "Latest tracks from people you follow" and I'm not really liking it. I wish when the people I follow release a new song I would be notified. I the notification list.
I LOVE 💕 this app for international travel to and from Canada and the USA. Pandora doesn't work in he north and I t has such a great algorithm for helping find new music. The format is also AMAZING. Love it 10/10 the perfect music app for me.
I've been seeing progressively more hangs drops, and where the application hangs or plays without audio, until I do a 4-stop and maybe a clear cache then it works for a little while. It seems like this applications no longer compatible with any version of Android. And this is my experience across three Pixel devices. It works with great difficulty on Pixel 6 Pro and after the last update, it doesn't pause music when a phone call comes in. It plays music over the phone call
The app is great and all but sometimes it glitches. Often I can't get my music to work. Recently it hasn't been automatically playing the next song. Making playlists is annoying. Using Spotify to make playlists is really easy. However I would choose SoundCloud over Spotify.
This app used to be great. Haven't had issues for years and have been a paying member for that time. Lately as someone else stated in their review the majority of songs will not play. Some will but take forever to load and the majority now say song is not playable. I have ran through all the troubleshooting and still the issues persist. This app is pretty much unusable at this point. I have requested help from the tech team and currently they've just suggested the basic fixs which haven't helped
Lots of options for what to listen to, and it had my favorite remix artists. However, the ads are out of control. They weren't bad when I first downloaded it, but they increased as I continued using it.
Please give the feature back of seeing what artists post when you click their name on the home tab. The 'stories' just interrupt your music and make it more difficult to find tracks and reposts from the artists you want to hear from. They tried the stories once and switched it back once already. Never written a review until now because it is such an unnecessary feature for soundclod
So much better than Spotify. So far, I haven't experienced problems with ads not to mention that I could listen to it while it runs in the background. Don't get me started on the music that I could listen to that's not available on Spotify. This is honestly a good app and I definitely recommend downloading
Way better than Pandora! I can replay the track as many times as I want and rewind and rewind and rewind. I love sound cloud for the special features they have including the exclusive tracks that you can't hear anywhere else!
Not being able to reorganize tracks within a playlist is extremely irritating. The new "Instagram story" style of artist reposts/uploads is also a major downfall. Because of this, I've quit using that function, which has always been my primary way of finding new music. I've used this app for years and this recent update is terrible. If this isn't improved upon I'm switching to Spotify.
If your looking for a great music app that has a free version that doesnt suck than this is it. Even on the free version your allowed to pick your songs even though there are ads they are short and only like 2 in a row and then you can listen for a while without hearing another one. This is one of the best music apps out there especially if you dont want to spend any money on it would highly recommend.
Like synthwave? Play it on Spotify in the background. Open this powerful daw and volume match the drums and instruments . Play in the same key and you will all of a sudden be improving variations and won't believe the hidden talent within. Then you will always be playing it and thinking how easy it is to play music . It's even as good as the desktop version and a first step imo before trying the desktop version. I like turtles
Responsive app with great UI design. Definitely the "frontier" of music artists as there are so many undiscovered artists that can be followed here and this is the only place to find their music. Really cool. Love the in-song comment feature, which in addition to the private messaging feature (which right now is desktop only), and the follow feature, make it more social than any music streaming app out there.
I get that they need to run ads, but an inappropriate, long, unskippable ad after EVERY song completely ruins the usability of the app. I wanted to test out the app before buying GO+, but this made it impossible to do so. I guess I'll just stick to using it in a browser where I can use it for free without ads.
SoundCloud has been and continues to be the #1 music platform that I turn for over a decade. Not only is the platform free to the general user, but it also offers some of the hottest tracks one can't easily find elsewhere.
The app itself is wonderful, but it could improve a bit. The app could make downloading the songs you want to download available, so using the app would be easier. But to be honest, the app is wonderful².
I don't know what they did to the app but only samples play when a followed profile is selected. To select any song crashes the app now. Figured an update would have posted to fix it but nothing in a week now. Whatever this new business model is, seems like a bad move. I've been using the app since 2017 and do my best to draw traffic to the app since I can't afford the "Go" service. This won't help expand customers to the app with the new set up.
Great music app. Probably the best one, better then Spotify to be honest but It would be even better if it was offline. I hate when I'm in a long car ride and have to listen to the same songs the whole ride because of the rest of them not working without WiFi. I'm glad it works a bit but I wish it worked for any song.
I love SoundCloud so much for all the amazing songs mostly by independent artists, the curated playlists are also very awesome. The downsides are the music quality isn't that great and you might not always find what you're looking for song-wise.
Okay so I love almost everything about this EXCEPT the ads! There's to many! I could be chilling listening to music then boom! An ad it's really annoying and I don't have enough money to pay for go+!!
App does not merit the cost one must pay to use. The pay version is way too high & free version will simply anger you to point you hate soundcloud; while jamming your favorite playlist in the middle of a track, this app will interject a commercial. NOT ACCEPTABLE. I understand one must pay for their music one way or another but to do this at a rate as high as 1:1 (1 minute of music to 1 min commercial), is not for me. Poor way to build brand loyalty. Good bye.
The app always crashes after the first 30 seconds of opening the app and attempting to click somebody's profile or otherwise interact with the application anyway. This is been an issue when soundcloud's app for the past at least 3 years yet it's still not fixed. This happens no matter how much storage I clear up on my phone or how many times I clear the cache or how many times I download and redownload the application
to my knowledge, you cant properly report someone on mobile, it just links me to a page on how to report someone on desktop. you cant edit playlist titles, covers, or descriptions after they are created on mobile, and the new way of adding/removing songs from them is unituitive. i despise the new way of seeing new tracks from people you follow; you cant properly click through to playlists despite them showing up and i dont like how it automatically plays a preview of the song. fine otherwise tho
Can't believe I just found out about this app (March 2022)!! I've been using YouTube for music & there's so many downfalls to that - specifically the music stops whenever you reply to messages or anything else. I had heard about SoundCloud before, but was under the impression it was for music artists to share their music. I was oblivious, for its real usage. I love this app! I've already started paying for a subscription, which is definitely worth it not having to see all those ads!
Amazing app, it just keeps showing up in my media section on my Android even after I force shut down the app... Not sure why you made your app so invasive, but when Spot, aud, yt, and a few other small names apps aren't showing up, you doing something wrong. Need to uninstall until you fix
I've been using this app for years and never once has it crashed or stopped working alot of different underground artists who have a lot of talent anynone could out here could be taken back to a moment in time due to the variety of acoustic sounds the premiums features are really worth it to be able to download your re fave tunes play them offline while on the go. So you avoid commercials .Major Plus in my book.
It's a good app but there is a problem, i created a playlist and i decided to delete it afterwards, and I thought it's gone, but for some reason the playlist is still appearing whenever i refresh, the reason why i gave it a 4 star is because there is problem and i think it's very important, soundcloud please respond, and fix this problem because it's really annoying.
I love the app, but the new story feature to discover your following artists is about the worst feature ever. I HATE it. It gives you 2 extra steps when you had just 1 step to listen to a song. Big downgrade for me.
I love SoundCloud at first but when I started to add songs in one playlist it wouldn't do it and the sounds I played cannot be playable anymore,.. but I remember playing it and it won't let me play it anymore saying it's unplayable... Please fix this
I don't really know how this app works! It's been troublesome to say the least. I thought I was making a playlist of my favorites automatically, but when I started to listen offline it just played maybe one or two songs-- then it started just playing whatever. I'm also afraid to download the songs because who knows what it would do. Update: I just uninstalled the app !! No lyrics and TOTAL CONFUSION!! I don't recommend it at all
I can't say if it is my phone OS or your app.. But navigating away from soundcloud lowers the volume. For which I am annoyed, but turn it up.. Then at some point navigate back and have to effin peel my headphones off like a hot potato. Someone thought they were clever. For which I say will smith to chris rock. 😠
This is quite possibly the best designed music app I have ever used. It is so clean and well designed. It operates perfectly without crashing. The UI is tastefully layed out and frankly, beautiful. The cover art scrolls by as you listen to a song. It integrates really well with Android UI and notifications, lock screen, etc. And that's before we even speak of how awesome the SoundCloud community is and how amazing this service is as a discovery tool. Crisp, clean, a masterclass in UX design.
I mean it's okay, right now, I'm not sure if it's just a me thing but when I want to edit my playlist I can't move the songs anymore. Those lines don't show up for me to move them. Hopefully it's just some glitch and I can move them up and down again 🤷🏽♀️
Absolutely wouldn't recommend. Let me clarify, the app is great to use. No problems. But this app would stop you from uploading after a certain amount of music (or "tracks"). As if this app couldn't be anymore money hungry.
I really enjoy SoundCloud! It's nice and simple to use and I've been using it for years. I don't exactly like the go+ aspect too much because u can't listen to some songs but in the end I really like it.
I absolutely live for this app! Its amazing and so easy to use. One thing tho, for some reason I cant chance the place of the songs. Since yesterday I added these new songs to my playlist and I wanted to put them at top but that wasn't possible anymore? I restarted my phone and everything but I couldn't move the songs, even tho I could before
I love this app, I just have one problem with it, I used to be able to sort songs in my playlists and arrange them by artist. But a few days ago I noticed that the app wasn't letting me move songs around in my playlists. If y'all could remedy this I would greatly appreciate it.
(EDITED) This app is wonderstruck but the problem is that it isn't an offline app because when i was on a trip and there was nothing to do so i opened this app and tried to listen to some songs but it keeps saying 'check your connection/network' and i was annoyed and i hated it. Please fix this I want to listen it in offline and in online.
I am uninstalling it to go back to just the website. It's missing truly rudimentary features like disabling autoplay, repeat, and replaying the current track, which for someone who likes to deeply analyze their music is an unworkable mess. I gave it two stars because it does, in fact, work, in that it will play stuff from soundcloud without issues, but it's not worth anything more than that. The website is way better, even on mobile.
Very annoyed with the download option for the paid membership. There basically is no way to download mixes unless you select the recently payed option. So I play the mix I want to download and it doesn't show up in the recently played menu in the app to download. Don't know why this app isn't more intuitive.
used to be a good app 1. it keeps appearing in my notifications bar even though im not listening to music at all. this is really annoying and has been happening to many ppl in the past few months. no response from sc. 2. sc used to incl recording and uploading streaming live performances. now i need to record the performance in another app and then upload to sc. that sux.no ads though so that always nice
Great app, best app for music out there. Only thing is that you guys keep making small tiny updates that inconveniences the app for me. For example, the menu screen for when you add song to a Playlist is changed... the filters for when you search something up has been moved as well. Can't really think of any others right now as these problems aren't major but the updates are simply just unneeded.
I use a samsung galaxy note 9, i also pay for soundcloud Go for the no ads and song downloading. But for some reason even though im paying monthly for a service, my likes on desktop DO NOT sync with my phone at all. The only way to fix it temporarily is to completely log out and log back into my account on the app every time i decide to like a track on desktop. Whats the point in paying monthly if my app cant even get access to the songs i liked on desktop.
Just technical problems all around, I log in, boom, something goes wrong, all of a sudden my account doesn't exist anymore although I confirmed my mail, worst part is that this problem happens on your website to on my computer, all around annoying and terrible. It should be a crime to have something this terrible, go take a time out in a corner or something, because this is horrid.
Switched from Spotify to this. Almost infinitely better. You actually CHOOSE what you listen to and that's a premium feature for Spotify users. Massive library of songs, web support, playlists, etc. This app has everything a music player should have. 5 stars.
Useless! Cannot use app. Unable to sign in at all. Can go to a search engine and click and listen but to sign in is totally useless. Some error message appears and cannot even back out from the app.
For those of you who would like to be able to download music files off SoundCloud WITHOUT paying for the app just login on a laptop or desktop. Pretty sure you can use Chrome and just go to settings and switch to desktop version and download files that way. You won't have to go through the app to listen either use whatever music player ya want. Update: The last few months (possibly longer) the app constantly stops playing while using other apps. About to uninstall if not fixed what good is it?
Love soundcloud as a service, but the app admittedly has a some issues. My main issue with the app is, my likes do not sync up over the network, liked tracks on mobile do not appear when looking at a profile on pc. There is a delay or I have to manually refresh to trigger an update (updating the app may overright liked tracks that havent sunc). Occasionally it will not let me play certain songs in my likes, autoskips? Search plays them tho. Overall great service apart from minor bugs in app.
the bugs and glitches just make me mad. there are random pauses and the music just Skip to the next one without reason. while these ads are so invasive. ads in the middle of the song? SERIOUSLY!!! and these ads are always about government and stuff, donate money this, donate blood etc. I would have paid for the app if the glitches were solved. so far not worth it.
Great: concept, interface. Improvements needed: 1. Possibility to sort your likes (e.g., A-Z). Why isn't this possible? 2. Less songs not available in my country (Germany) or nonexistant. Way too many artists, albums and songs are missing or unplayable, especially from non-english-speaking countries (e.g. K.I.Z). Some of these can be played as "normal" tracks (not GO+), but a lot not. The worst is when songs were originally available and then suddenly aren't anymore, happening regularly sadly!
It plays your music, that's about the best it does. Also, Soundcloud, imagine being able to communicate with other people, on a mobile app! Seriously, why isn't this feature currently possible, it's ridiculous. You're only able to read or send soundcloud messages on the desktop site. Please, fu***** implement this. Thanks.
Great app, it introduced me to all my favorite song artists that I still listen to. But after using is for about 4ish years and my liked tracks have reached the 3,000s it's annoying to wait for it to load when you just want to get to the top song. As well as the soundcloud weekly, my current one for the week is half way filled with songs I've already listened to. Like one time 2 weeks in a row it had the same songs. Annoying, but that's only if you've been using Soundcloud for a LONG time.
The thing does not stop for one second, making full use of those permissions we give it. I'm only leaving this review because I have essentially been forced to delete this app, the thing never stops. Pops up every time my phone is on. Remove it? Comes back. I have gone months without opening this app but it's always there.
Now that I have soundcloud go, I thankfully am not having to deal with ads, but now when I press shuffle it only shuffles maybe a hundred songs out of the playlist. What is the point of that? I even downloaded the playlist hoping that would fix it but it didn't. Come on guys, if I have it downloaded there is ZERO reason for it not to play the whole thing. Also there's a 500 song cap for a playlist which makes the limited shuffle make even less sense. I'm trying to listen to music here. Be better
Four Stars! This app is amazing. It has lots of songs that are not on Spotify! (I'm not saying that I DONT LIKE Spotify. ) But...I tried to log in but it wouldn't let me! I also tried making a new account but THAT DIDN'T WORK EITHER. I like the app, but that has stopped me from using it...I hope this gets fixed soon! I still love the app.
This is a great app for listening to music especially unreleased, with the free version you can listen to pretty much all leaks and it still plays in the background when closing the app, it does have ads but they're every now and then and not very long. 10/10
Love the content... usability and ui. Especially scrolling songs... it's just an amazing way to implement that feature. One thing that I would like to see integrated is direct streaming to my Sonos system like the Spotify app supports.
Great app for music but most songs won't even play. One day I can be listening to a song then the next day, it apparently "couldn't load" which is extremely frustrating. Please fix this.
Why give an option to download songs that are liked but when I open my liked songs list it just loads and loads if my phone happens to have 1 bar of service instead of showing the music list immediately since they're "downloaded". Forces me to go into settings and turn on airplane mode just to get the list to populate. (galaxy s10)
20 updates later and I still can't follow anyone back using the app, everytime I tap follow the black button turns gray and says following and then on its own it turns back to black and automatically unfollows them again, I have tried closing and opening and it doesn't fix the issue, obviously devs don't pay attention to reviews and there's no customer service or anyone I can send a message to to fix it been complaining every month
compared to other music platforms so far soundcloud is the only one to hold up. it's has no where near the best algorithm compared to sporify, but it stands its ground fairly well and is pretty good in giving an audience to the smaller creators
A new glitch is happening right now. I can't add to a playlist, start an artist's station, and add a song up next to a song currently playing. I uninstalled the app and redownloaded it, and it went away for a moment. But the glitch has returned. If there is some way the bug can be fixed, that would be highly appreciated. I love the app, but gotta rate it a 3 star till something's fixed
I can't respond via my previous message, but regarding the missing back button on the notification bar/lock screen. The method described to hit the back button does not work on my device. Back button shows if you swipe down, but on pixel 3, the buttons become unclickable. There still exists no way for me to go back a track without completely unlocking the screen, opening SoundCloud and hitting back. Very frustrating
Apps great for music and Im enjoying the music on the app. But the search engine is frustrating as heck! I litterally look up "live-a-live video game" and instead of showing music/covers of the game live-a-live it shows things that are completely unrelated. Im giving a star less than it probably deserves just because im upset at the bad search system. Update: mobile website has a better search engine for some reason.
I switched from Spotify because the free version of SoundCloud is better because it has unlimited skips, up next feature, and being able to choose a song, just like a music player should be, like a mp3 player, and overall it's still a upgrade from Spotify but it's annoying when they switch a song that wasn't Go only then do they switch it to Go with no warning at all, and in my case, since I don't want to pay for Go I can't listen to it anymore. I'm not asking to stop it, just give me a warning.
So far I love it. Easy to use and has great gym workout music. Doesn't have much adds i think. Simple, easy but quality app with no confusion with playlist library. Did have a issue is the past when I kept deleting some song from my playlist, but those songs kept coming back out-of-nowhere. I hope it doesn't happen again, it was quite annoying.
This app was 5 stars, but I gave it only 4 now due to the ads. Sometimes I get 2 thirty second ads and it gets irritating sometimes. I understand that apps like this has ads in order to make some money, but it gets very annoying from time to time
This is a great app for my music, but I have 1 minor problem. When there's an ad I should still be able to stop the Playlist and go forward or backward, but It won't let me (and the ads are so long like I get it that artists get paid but 2 30 second ads that won't let me do anything but pause them?)
Close to useless, at least in Germany. Since December 2021 I noticed an increase in tracks that "cannot be streamed", as the app puts it. This got so worse, that even the yearly playback was close to a joke with every third track not being able to be streamed. Right now you can not use this app while doing sport or simply listening to music while showering, because the playlist just stops when a track is encountered which "cannot be streamed". And it gets worse every month it seems...
I want to like this app but the songs cut out in the middle like a record skipping. I switched from Spotify to Pandora to this and this app has a ton of good music. I love that I can modify my own playlists but it never keeps them downloaded so I can listen offline. I work in a building with no signal so that really sucks. I don't understand why I'll download the music and then I go to play offline and it's not there half the time. I pay for premium service too. I'm not keeping this app. :(
Having issues with streaming since subscribing to SoundCloud Go. Could be a coincidence. Stuttering, stopping, and no autoplay. I know this sounds like a connection issue, but I've had the same problem on 3 separate networks, all with strong signals. Can't even find how to unsubscribe on the app. Really bad experience. Update: I have the error "In-App purchase service is unable to connect" when this stutter happens. It happens almost every song.
Lately Ive had trouble with SoundCloud being VERY slow to load songs, search results, playlists, etc. It will frequently stop responding and force me to close and reopen it. The app doesnt need to be updated so I dont know what the problem is. If it gets any worse Im afraid it will stop working for me entirely :'( Ive been using SoundCloud for about 6 years now and I will be really bummed if I have to transfer to a different app.
This used to be a great app. I'd use it all the time until it started just shutting down out of no where. I'm usually in another tab while listening to some music, ( Keep in mind a lot of the applications I use don't have sound so I'm almost positive it's not them. ) but now I can't be in another tab for half of a song until it turns off and SoundCloud just crashes. I've tried to look through settings but this doesn't seem to be a mode. SoundCloud is good besides that, though. Please fix this.
Awful. 5-10 years ago I used to use SoundCloud as my primary music player. When they introduced Go, I just flat out stopped listening to this type of user-generated music. I've found myself in love with bedroom producer remixes, but having ads interrupt my listening experience is so unbearable that I'll never use the phone app for this again. The app itself has devolved in every way from 10 years ago.
I was using the web version and when I tried to download it, it said I needed to install the app. I installed the app and it has now way to download the audio. Digging around, I discovered you have to pay extra for that. I contacted them about this but never heard back. I don't support companies that have misleading marketing campaigns like this, especially when their customer support fails to respond. Now that the audiobook is complete, I'm uninstalling.
My favorite music app so far! In my opinion this is better than Spotify because this has less ads and more music. The only thing I reccommed is to get rid of the Add to up next feature because when I accidentally click it it won't let me get back to listening to my other playlists and then I have to uninstall and reinstall the app.
Would give it a 5 star. But the customer service doesn't exist. Makes it difficult when you forget your email that it's connected to, but can't log in to listen. And my URL is correct, but still can't connect. Not fair. Sucks getting charged for something I can't use, and can't cancel if you forget your email. Shame on me and Shame on SoundCloud! One of the best apps for music! Brilliant design, just don't forget your email if you pay for Pro... JS
This has to be my favorite app for music. Only problem is when I try to like a song, it'll unlike it. It'll show up in my liked tracks then it will remove itself. not a premium song. I tried to like dead eyes by Powfu. & it won't let me. So I tried 5 different songs & still didn't add to my liked tracks. I have 256 songs. I feel like I can have more songs. I updated it. Still wont work & rebooted my phone. Still isnt working. If you can fix this problem itd be very much appreciated!! Thank you!
I'm about ready to uninstall this app. It is not possible to remove the currently playing song, so the mini-player keeps popping up in my notifications bar showing that soundcloud is now playing (actually starts playing if I am connecting to a device which auto-plays, like my car stereo). This is the only music app I use that behaves this way and it is unbelievably annoying. Has been an issue for too long.
This used to be a great app to listen to music all the time. I used it for several years and it was great, but on the last year the app has gotten terrible. Randomly pausing songs, buffering in songs, skipping songs while the current one plays, ads galore, not working at all when using mobile data. It works fine on wifi, but on data it's become a nightmare. It only gets two stars for the random days it decided to work like it used to.
It's a good app but since adding the "next up" feature the remove/ trashcan doesn't work on Android, somehow I've added 500 tracks to my "next up" list and can't remove them. So whatever I listen to the following song I hear is from the "next up" queue. I can't remove the 500 songs. When I try to drag and drop them it shows a trashcan but I can't select it without taking my finger off my screen. Please help! How do I remove the songs from the queue? It's not working on my Samsung S9.
I love this app! The only thing I would recommend is whenever I open Snapchat to text someone, the music shuts off. If it would keep playing while I'm in the app and texting someone more then half, most, fully, or twice, that'd be fantastic. THANK YOUUU! Again, this is my favorite app for music, it's free and easy to use. 10/10 would recommend!
Soundcloud is basically the only music app I use because its probably the best free one. The only thing that sucks is you can't listen to ads and use the app, it makes you look at whatever is being advertised but most of the time it's just the word "advertisment" with a black background.
Unlike spotify, this actually lets us choose what music to play without having to buy stupid premuim. Oh and also, there is alot more songs to listen to than spotify, and when you play a song, IT STILL PLAYS WHEN YOU GO OFF THE APP! There is still ads tho, but they're only like 15 seconds and you only need to watch one ad instead of 5 in a row unlike spotify.
Hi. SoundCloud is a great one-stop solution for many of your music needs. Whether a producer, artist or listener. I'm befuddled, however on just how the feature of sending a song to a user on twitch works. I'm partial to the old days where one simply did not have this option and had to upload the file onto a server stack and send it by means of a secure encrypted protocol. Those LAMP stack days were sure useful at the time!
this app keeps updating but it seems like it's all for nothing; it still continues to stop playing and shut down by itself. recently i was in the app playing music and it closed right in front of me. music also now has these unbearable pauses whenever you select a track (it happens after ads too), even when the track is on repeat. ads are repetitive and still annoying. is the SC team playing me for a fool or what
really good app, my only complaint is that for some songs you are required to have premium to even listen to them, my opinion on this is that maybe we should be able to at least listen to those songs without premium, but an ad WILL play before letting you listen to it UNLESS you have premium to remove ads. other than that, this app is awesome !!
This is a great app for listening to independent artists that I struggle to find elsewhere. It does a good job of recommending similar music to what you like and assembling Playlist. I wish I could build stations that would randomly grab new artists for me like in Pandora, and maybe it has that feature, but I haven't found it yet.
Edit: It just stopped working altogether. Cant even open it now. Its useless, so annoying. Loved the app, used it for 3 years. Now its not even working. The app keeps crashing and my playlist stopped working. It just lags. I cant even listen to music and it was the only app i liked using. I understand it needs ads to keep it free to a certain degree but now its getting a bit excessive. I keep having the same ads each 5 songs and its getting annoying. Please fix it, i really love this app.
one of the recent updates have been grinding my gears for a bit now. the whole process of adding or removing tracks to a playlist has been messed with in a way that makes it so when you remove a song from a playlist you can't really add it back, similarly when creating playlists one of my gripes have been not being able to change the title of said playlist, especially since now it can get stuck as 'untitled'. I sincerely love this app and would like to see this be solved, thank you.
Doesn't autoplay like it used to and it chooses which songs to skip even though the track is playable. But trust that those darn ads are playable though. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app, clearing the cache, and restarting my phone did not work. This has never resolved itself (it has been going on for the past 6 months). I'm done.
overall, this platform provides basically any song you could possibly think of searching and listening to. as far as the UI is concerned, it's a little unorganized and I myself, coming from Spotify(still active), find myself figuring out which way to turn to get to where I need to be.
Honestly because of the fact you can listen to any song you search up (other than premium only songs) and listen to it straight away and not a whole Playlist that's why I use it a lot. But the ads can get a little repetitive and are sometimes ridiculously long. So yeah, but that's the only downside, other than that it's pretty good free music app.
Idk how soundcloud is rated above 2 stars, based on ads, features, and the miniscule selection. Literally a minute long ad every other song. If i wasn't trying to impress my ex i would just delete my account. smh update: the feature to remove songs from playlists isn't currently functioning, which means i am now just embarrassing myself in front of my ex. Thanks guys
Well I've been using SC for several years now and its definitely my favorite music app. Its got all of the music i like, except the really specific and obscure songs, but thats kinda given. The only problem I have with it is all of the mainstream music is on plus, but that's also given, and it's not bad at all. That's just a problem on my end.
Great music app. Way better than Spotify at this point. But the ads get annoying. You can only listen to three songs, you get two ads, and it repeats. Some songs you can't listen to because of the pay wall. And sometimes when I pause a song, the notification disappears, making me go back to the app to play the next song on my playlist. But for the life of me I am not getting Spotify again, so I'm keeping this for a while.
Ugh, the ads like I got a 1 minute ad that you can't skip. There is way to much ads like why? I don't remember the app generating a ad like every 2 songs, it's annoying. It plays the same ads over and over again to the point I know some of the lines by heart. None of it is related to what I'm listening to or search. The app is good but the ads is just too much for me apparently.
I love the app, it has introduced me to so many artist and has a nice easy to use interface, but I has been nothing but a pain for years, making songs unavailable in my country on and off, not letting me listen to music with my phone off cause of video ads, and recently it has actually just stopped me from listening to some songs for no reason even tho I was able to listen them earlier that same day
I've been using SoundCloud for years now and only now have I had a problem with it. Songs showing up in my likes when I haven't added them. And now tracks out of nowhere not working, saying it can't be streamed when I played it the day before and it worked just fine. Hope they fix this, until then I might just use Spotify. Two example tracks would be The Less I Know The Better by Tame Impala and Run Run by Shenseea. They completely won't work for me when I was able to listen to them before.
I love this app, I really do, but lately it just randomly shuts down and freezes my entire phone for a good few minutes. I try to select a song, it freezes, I try to exit after the app froze, nope phone's froze too. I don't know if anyone else has this issue but it's getting quite irritating when all I'm trying to do is listen to music.
It's a great place to get your self started on getting your music out there even though at times it seems like some of our contents seem to get blocked or reduced plays end up showing up and that makes no sense but other than that i love it !! I'm expanding to new platforms though so that it won't hold me up or hold us back !
Excellent app. Abit too many ads for free music service when compared to similar services. 01/07/2022 Update: I've noticed a new annoyance that petty sure didn't exist until recently. Ads will play after a certain amount of time of having the (desktop) app open. If I play one song, then pause the player, for say 20 minutes, then attempt to resume music another ad will play. The ads would be more appropriate if they played after I have played tunes for x number of minutes.
Love this app, love the hidden gems of music that comes from sources like Soundcloud. Also fantastic addition that now it works with Android Auto! Lately, the app has been crashing pretty hard. Cant even play a song without it freezing and crashing, let alone search or skip. If this bug gets fixed it will be back to near perfect!
Works great until it doesn't. The app is pretty intuitive and overall I have had good experiences but for whatever reason, the app will just crash and completely close out on my phone mid-song/set. This will usually happen at the WORST times possible (merging onto a highway for instance). Other times it will fail to load back a set if you pause it midway through to answer a phone call causing the app to reset your position in the set to the very beginning. Hoping this update will fix this
Honestly, this app is good. But, there is just one problem. When I put the song on loop, and it finishes, an ad starts playing and it just kills the loop. I wish the music could still loop after the ad so that I don't have to go back and put it on again all the time. If you can fix this issue, I'll like the app more. Thanks.
it's a pretty solid app. it's pretty much a Pandora cookie cutter that allows free members to look up and play songs on the spot and create play lists instead of just making a radio station which is why I gave it 5 stars. otherwise I'd of probably rated it more like a 2 due to the complete and total utter lack of originality and creativity. also just like Pandora You can chose to create a radio station. I still prefer Pandora primarily because I tend to favor the original over the replica.
There is a new set of ads (e.g. GTA V) that forces you to keep the screen on and watch the video, instead of just listening to the ad with screen off. Highly disruptive to a listening session, espcially when I'm trying to run/exercise. Terrible aggressive forced marketing tactic that completely TURNS me off to this app.
Pretty good but one major error So soundcloud is really good since it's free and it has most great songs I want to play but how do you close them??? I've closed the app and restarted my phone and tried basically every button but I can't get rid of the song from my notifications panel, it just comes back a few minutes later. Please make it easier or even just possible to find out how to stop playback because I can pause it, just not get rid of it. Thank you
Everything has been great up until a week ago my songs keep freezing almost after every single song. When the next song comes up it just sits there and doesn't play wich bassicly makes me have to press play for every song wich you could imagine is VERY annoying. The app would be almost perfect if that could be fixed. And to answer your question yes, I stay on top of my updates. Please fix this, thank you.
I absolutely love this app. It was a bit hard to work at first but now I'm amazing at it. You can even turn off your phone and still listen to music and you can make playlists. only thing is that it has ads. And you need to have premium to get some songs but definitely not all there's a bunch of available and I would definitely recommend this!
This app was working all fine for years. It had many available songs and artists, you could make and edit playlists, you could play any song in a playlist, and you could comment and like songs. All with minimal ads. But one day i got force signed out of my account and I couldnt log back in with my original Facebook acount. It said "error sorry we cant sign you in" and then something something. I dont really know why it happened but if it gets fixed I'll give a 5 star rating once again.
The like button stopped working on multiple songs from hours to weeks at a time and the ads are just terrible. The number of ads is fine, but it's the ads themselves. I hate the square space ones the most. I wish there was an option to not see certain ads. Of course, there would be limits. The ads that require you to be on the app also suck a lot.
Until a week or two ago I loved using the Soundcloud app, even if it was a little annoying that while listening to My likes it'd jump super far down the list but it was fine. Lately there's been random songs I've never listened or liked popping up with the header of it saying "Added by you", which is a blatant lie. I have found no way to get rid of it, turn it off or anyone make any posts related to it. Edit: It seems they have fixed the problem I mentioned!
Love this app, been using for a decade now..sheeeeesh. Love the recent Android auto integration. Currently having bugs on s21 ultra with Playlists. Creating new playlists for some reason creates two each time with no option to name / rename. In addition, if you accidentally add a track to a playlist and click it again, it's removed. Nbd, except it then refuses to allow you to re-add it to that same playlist. Finally, playing an album for some reason plays random liked songs instead? Weird
A great app overall. However, there are multiple problems I have with the app. 1. If you are looking for a specific niche genre of music, this app is not for you. Copyrighted music are either low quality rips, pay to listen, or a bad remix. It's not Soundcloud's fault, but it's still frustrating. 2. There is no way to organize tracks with preformance related filters. That means you are never guarenteed to find and organize tracks by your plays.
It works perfectly fine apart from the constant VIDEO advertisements. I wouldn't be complaining about this if it didn't use my mobile data everytime one of these ads play. This app is not the same as it used to be, I suggest not using SoundCloud if all you want to do is listen to a select few songs. They've also moved the replay option which I often use, to a more inconvenient location.
I've used it for quite awhile now, but recently it's been having issues. These issues are honestly triggering. The first one that gets on my nerves the most is, when I go to a certain app the music will completely shut off. The second one is, is that it will randomly pause what I have playing and then shut off the app once more, the last one is that, in my liked tracks it will randomly change what I had playing to something completely different. I would rate this 5 stars but rn it's staying as 2
