SoundCloud adds stations to encourage music discovery

by John_A

It’s no secret that SoundCloud is aiming to roll out its audio streaming service this year, and the company is laying the groundwork with new features. With an update to both the Android and iOS apps, SoundCloud added a new stations feature to encourage music discovery. The continuous play tool will help you find songs that aren’t available anywhere else by starting an endless mix from any track. And yes, it’s a feature that the likes of Pandora, Spotify and Apple Music already offer.
The stations feature uses your listening habits and the tracks you’ve liked to determine the mix. All you have to do tap the three-dot menu next to a track and select the “start track station” option. After the first song your station is based on plays, you’ll still get the title under what’s currently playing to you’ll know where you started. You know, in case something really strange pops up. If you find mix you like, you can revisit them from the “recent stations” under the “likes” section of your profile. The feature is live in both the iOS and Android apps now, but it hasn’t made it to the web just yet.
