Your Feed and how it works

Your Feed helps you discover new tracks and keeps you up to date with the people you follow. We have just released a major update to the Feed on mobile (iOS and Android) splitting the Feed into two tabs: Discover and Following. On web, Feed will continue to just be the Following feed for now. 

 

Mobile (iOS and Android)

The mobile Feed is split into two tabs: Discover and Following. Both tabs are designed to make it easier than ever to get a taste of music, before deciding if you want to listen to more. The preview you hear has either been hand picked by the artist, or by our AI tagging tool to select what is most exciting for you. 

You can click into a track to listen to the full song, or swipe down to hear the next track. If you finish listening to the full clip, it will play again from the beginning.

 

Discovery Tab:

The Discovery tab helps you discover new music & artists, based on what you’ve liked and listened to and who you follow. Every recommendation is personalised for you and contains an explanation for why it was selected. 

The more you like and follow, the more your recommendations will adjust. 


Following Tab:

The Following tab shows new releases and reposts from people that you follow in reverse chronological order. You also have the ability to see what people have captioned their reposts in the Following Feed.

You can unfollow users to stop their new uploads and reposts from appearing in your Feed. Any older tracks or playlists will also disappear. 

Please note: It’s only possible to see one post or repost of a specific track in your Following Feed. Initially all tracks are "posted" by a creator in the feed, however, if someone that you follow reposts the track, the repost will be shown at the top of your feed and erase any post of the same track from another user if it's further down in your feed.


Classic Feed View on Mobile

For a limited time, you’ll be able to access the classic Feed view by hitting the toggle in your Feed settings on the top right of the page.  

 

Promoted tracks

Promoted tracks enable artists, labels and brands to share their content in the Feeds of those who aren't following them to get their name and sound out to a broader audience. These are similar to promoted posts or sponsored content found on other social media sites. Promoted tracks will always be differentiated with a “promoted” tag.

Please note: Promoted tracks are currently only available to Next Pro accounts, brand partners and Next Plus users. However, there are other ways you can promote yourself within the SoundCloud community. Read here for more details.

Web

On web, you will see the classic version of the Feed. At this time, the new version of the Feed will be on mobile only.
