There are many places on the Internet where you can listen to music. However, very few places offer the variety and sheer size of libraries like SoundCloud.

SoundCloud is a music streaming app with over 320 million songs. That is a lot of songs, and you can get so much diversity here. You can find popular songs from your favorite artists on the app.

But, if you like diversity and would like to be exposed to new music, then SoundCloud is the place for you. Here you will find songs from indie musicians and beautiful covers of songs you like.

As an artist, it is also a great way to get your songs in front of millions of listeners.

What we like about SoundCloud is that it’s not just a home to songs, but it also has a large repository of podcasts and audiobooks.

Also, you can access all these with just a tap on your device. The SoundCloud app is downloadable from your favorite app store. Better still, scroll down to the end of this article to find a download link for the app.

Core Features of the SoundCloud App

SoundCloud was released in 2008 by a Germany-based company. The app has been around for decades, and the creators consistently update the app to make it better and create user-friendly features.

The first thing to bear in mind is that SoundCloud appeals to listeners and creators as well. As a creator, you can easily upload your content and promote it on the platform.

Secondly, it also works like a social network. So, you can get followers, like songs and podcasts, share your content and discoveries with your network, and lots more. Key features include:

  • Upload your songs
  • Get paid for your content
  • Gain fans on the platform
  • Collaborate with other artists
  • Create private and public playlists
  • Recommend music
  • Comment on songs

SoundCloud is different for creators and listeners. It is the same app, but the benefits are different for each group.

How does SoundCloud work?

SoundCloud is a free app, but you need to create an account to use it. You can either do what when you download the app or on their website

Once you’ve downloaded the app and created your account, you can start listening to music for free.

One of the reasons why SoundCloud is so popular among users is the free music. You can listen to any song you want for free. The only snag is that you will have to endure the ads that come with the free account.

You can always get rid of the ads by upgrading to a paid account.

It works almost the same way for creators. As a creator, you can create a free account and use that to upload your content for free. Of course, you will get access to more resources when you upgrade to a paid account.

The SoundCloud app is available on Android, and Apple devices, as well as via PC.

SoundCloud Alternatives

Apple iTunes and Apple Music are both formidable competitors. They also have large libraries with millions of songs for listeners. Apple Music has a higher sound quality than SoundCloud, but it does not have a free plan.

YouTube Music is another alternative that provides millions of songs to listeners. It works a bit like SoundCloud with the option of a free ad-supported account and a paid upgrade. The only problem is that the ads on YouTube music are enough to drive a person crazy. They are long, and YT Music can play as many as three ads before another song begins.

The best alternative, however, is Spotify. The audio quality is better than SoundCloud’s audio, the user interface is simple, and the payment plan is cheaper.

In Conclusion

If you are someone who is not so crazy about mainstream music but prefers to travel off the beaten track, then we recommend SoundCloud. It has the highest number of indie music and some tracks are very good.
