Control over how your tracks are used is entirely up to you, the rights holder. Your listeners will continue to freely access and experience your tracks in the same way as they always have. The introduction of SoundCloud Go does not mean SoundCloud will now place ads, or restrictions on your track’s availability without your permission.
We know that not all creators are able to make money off their work on SoundCloud yet, but we’re dedicated to building a platform where this becomes the reality. We’re actively working on this by expanding our SoundCloud Premier program.
Benefits of SoundCloud Go
With the introduction of SoundCloud Go (Available in these countries), you now have the ability to get even more plays and reach even more people by making your tracks available for offline listening. Plays that you get from offline listens will be included in the stats for each track. Learn more about plays from offline listens.
