Today, we’re launching the next step in the evolution of the Stations feature. You can now start Stations from the profile pages of all artists on SoundCloud in our app. Tap “Start Station” on any artist profile for a lean back,
seamless listening experience full of tracks similar to the artist you started the station from.
Just like Stations you’ve started from tracks, Stations started from an artist profile will be saved to your Collection so that you can easily revisit them later. The tracks in a Station are refreshed every time you start one again and you can also skip as often as you’d like while listening.
How does it work?
The algorithm behind Stations serves content in a different way than the Suggested Tracks feature we recently launched. Stations serve a longer queue of songs that are a mixture of similar, new, and popular tracks related to the track or artist you started the Station from, for an experience closer to listening to the radio.
If you have a SoundCloud Go subscription, tracks from the entire 125 million strong catalog will show up in Stations and Suggested Tracks. If you use SoundCloud for free, you’ll still be able to listen to tens of millions of tracks with both features.
The potential for discovery on SoundCloud is virtually limitless. Stations and Suggested Tracks are part of a larger effort we’re undertaking to make it easier for you to find new artists to love and revisit the artists you already do.
Tapping into Stations
Like the Suggested Tracks feature, we’ve also added Suggested Stations in the app Search tab. Your experience may be slightly different depending on how long you’ve been a SoundCloud user.
