If YouTube is a powerful platform for aspiring vloggers to share their unique content online, SoundCloud is a go-to platform for all aspiring and emerging music artists. Generally, SoundCloud is considered to be a music streaming service provider but it also comes with a multitude of amazing features that many aspiring artists will enjoy. The core function of SoundCloud is to allow users to upload their own music and let other people discover it. The app allows you to connect with fellow artists and as well as your fans. SoundCloud is the world’s largest music and audio streaming platform with more than 200 million tracks and a global community of 20 million-plus artists from every creative corner of the world. It is a platform where you can possibly discover the next big hit on the radio.

For the original PC version of SoundCloud, user cannot just upload their music on the platform but they can also share their content with others via different social network sites like Facebook and Twitter. Registered users can listen to unlimited audio and may upload up to 180 minutes of audio to their profile at no cost. Users can also promote their content through their blogs by simply placing the widgets. The SoundCloud app, however, comes with a different purpose. Interestingly, there are 2 SoundCloud mobile apps. One is intended for streaming while the other one (SoundCloud Pulse) is intended for Creators to manage their accounts and music.

Simply download the SoundCloud app either from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to get started. Once downloaded, you will be asked to sign in using your existing SoundCloud account or you can also create a new one through the app itself. You can sign up using your Google, Facebook, or Apple account. The home screen will give you quick access to its huge library of music which is sorted in various categories and genres.
