It’s a big day for the SoundCloud community – for both creators and listeners, newbies and those of you who’ve been with us from the beginning. We’re happy to announce that SoundCloud Go, our subscription service for listeners, is now available in the U.S. SoundCloud Go is the same SoundCloud you’ve known for years taken to the next level: with an expanded catalog of tracks that are new to the platform, new features and new functionality.
On Tuesday, Soundcloud announced Soundcloud Go, a new subscription streaming service it’s launching with the blessing of the music industry. According to co-founder Eric Wahlforss, the company’s CTO, the service was a long time coming.
“The decision to [go subscription] was made several years ago,” Wahlforss told BuzzFeed News. “It just took quite a while to get all the pieces together. These were difficult negotiations.”
