SoundCloud Discover (Suggested Tracks)

by Jeff Ponchick in Announcements June 22, 2016

SoundCloud is built for discovery; for the magic moment when you’re blown away by an artist you’ve never heard before. Connecting listeners to new artists and artists to new listeners is what SoundCloud does.

Today SoundCloud is excited to announce that they have started rolling out our newest discovery feature, Suggested Tracks, across all SoundCloud platforms. It uses listening activity to automatically find new tracks and artists that listeners have likely never heard before, but are similar to the tracks they already know and love. And with 125 million tracks and counting on SoundCloud, there’s always more to discover.

Suggested Tracks

Suggested Tracks makes use of their state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm to deliver fresh new music and audio suggestions based on a listeners likes and plays on SoundCloud - refreshing frequently with tracks they won’t find anywhere else. The more you use SoundCloud, the more the algorithm learns and perfects itself, day after day.

On the web, Suggested Tracks is the centerpiece of the new Discover tab we’ve added to the home screen experience.

In SoundCloud’s app, you’ll find Suggested Tracks in the Search field - easily accessible by clicking the magnifying glass icon in the footer (iOS) or header (Android) of the app.

  • If you’ve been listening on SoundCloud for a while, head over to the Discover tab on web or Search in the app – your suggested tracks are already waiting.

  • If you’re new to SoundCloud or don’t see many suggestions, we need to learn more about your tastes. Dive into SoundCloud’s huge community of music and audio creators and let us know what you like by listening to or liking a few tracks. You’ll soon find suggested tracks based on your activity.
