Last week, SoundCloud launched its new consumer subscription service, SoundCloud Go in Australia and New Zealand.
Following successful launches in the US, France, the UK and Ireland earlier this year, Australia and New Zealand are the first markets in the Southern Hemisphere to offer music fans the SoundCloud Go experience – an expanded catalogue of more than 135 million tracks with intuitive supporting features created to complement and enhance the existing SoundCloud experience.
SoundCloud Go is available in Australia and New Zealand on web, iOS App Store and Google Play, and priced at AU$11.99 / NZ$12.99 per month, with a free 30-day trial. iOS users can avoid the App Store surcharge for signing up to the service via the SoundCloud app ($14.99 (AU) / $17.99 (NZ) per month) by visiting soundcloud.com/go instead.
In addition, the free service listeners love today will remain and will now be supported by a range of advertising options as part of SoundCloud’s commitment to creators to have the opportunity to be paid for the work they share.
Over the last few months, SoundCloud launched several new features to give listeners even more ways to discover its massive catalogue of diverse content – from hip-hop, rock, pop, jazz, ambient, witch-hop and electronic, to new genres and sounds emerging on SoundCloud everyday.
New features include:
- Albums allowing creators to share and organize their work, and listeners even more ways to discover, share and interact with their favorite music
- Stations, a long radio-like mix of music based upon any track or artist
- Suggested Tracks, to discover new favorites within a familiar groove or genre
