  • SoundCloud launches Go subscription service with more content & offline caching
    SoundCloud is launching a new subscription service and it's called 'Go'. It's $9.99 USD a month, with a 30-day-free demo. It's ad-free. It lets you listen offline, caches usefully. It's only in the U.S. for now but most importantly, it has nearly 100 million more tracks (give or take five million... but who's counting) than Spotify.


    Thanks to licensing deals with Universal, Sony, Merlin, Warner, and other labels, Go listeners will also be able to hear many more songs and complete albums, including ones by Top 40 acts, SoundCloud said. Many established musicians already have a presence on SoundCloud, until now they have typically used it to promote singles, remixes, or B-sides.

    Today's launch is SoundCloud's next step in attempting to turn a profit, after having introduced ads, and some paid functions for creators. It will also put the company in direct competition with Apple and Spotify, though the latter's streaming services are geared more towards commercial music and less towards independents.
