If you already know the popular social network like Facebook/Twitter and the social photo network like Pinterest/Instagram, then you probably know about the music social network like SoundCloud. Here, you can download music files of any musician or singer. Conversely, if you have the ability to compose/sing the wonderful songs, you can immediately upload your songs here for everyone else to enjoy.
Why should you choose a SoundCloud application to listen to music?
First, it will be an extremely brilliant idea when combining a music application with a social network. Up to the present time, it can be confirmed that SoundCloud is a unique website/application that can do this. It will help singers/musicians have real talent that no one has ever known before to be famous without spending a lot of money to advertise to the public.
Huge music library
Besides buying the copyright of all famous singers/musicians around the world to be able to distribute their songs, SoundCloud also allows its members to upload their songs to its library. But you should bear in mind that only uploading the products are created/covered by yourself. If you upload the songs that are not yours, they will be deleted because of the copyright violation. This is also the reason SoundCloud’s music library is bigger than any other website or music application in the world.
The interface of SoundCloud is simple because it does not divide details like other music applications. All songs will be sorted by basic music genres such as sleep, workout, study, relax, party, chill, etc. It is far different from the way to divide by the singer/songwriter, pop, rap, rock, R&B, podcast, etc. Simple but perfect. Therefore, everything will be displayed on SoundCloud.
Update music continuously
Don’t forget that besides being a true website, the SoundCloud music application is also a social network. Therefore, when you use it, there is also the News Feed feature. Here, the songs will be updated every second based on the manufacturer/user uploading or the user’s interaction for each song. That’s why every time you access to SoundCloud, you will enjoy the latest music.
SoundCloud allows you to create your own library with lots of playlists
The library section will be a place to list the songs that you’ve heard. And yet, you can also choose your favorite songs to create different playlists. After that, you can listen to those playlists according to your mood or purpose.
Interact and share music easily
On your best-loved song/albums/playlist, you can bookmark favorites, report to SoundCloud so that this song will be in the top News Feed of many people. In addition, you can easily share this song on social networks or make them become news on Instagram with just one click.
How to download and install SoundCloud
Fortunately, SoundCloud is currently available both on Android and iOS operating systems. You can download it at the link above this article, or go directly to Google Play/App Store.
To be able to use SoundCloud, you need to register an account. The fastest way is to use Facebook to register. All your information likes name, date of birth, email, etc. will be transferred to SoundCloud. So, you will immediately have an account and use is also very easy.
How to download music on SoundCloud
To be allowed to download music on SoundCloud, you need to upgrade to Pro account (when login, it will help you not to be bothered by ads and can download music files to your device).
In case you cannot afford to upgrade to Pro account, you can still download the music from SoundCloud with the 3rd party. That is soundcloudmp3.org. Simply paste the URL of the song that you want to download into the toolbar on that site, then click “Download mp3” select the location, and click OK.
Comparison between SoundCloud and Spotify App
Both these applications are the most wanted in the world. However, SoundCloud seems to be more welcomed and loved by users. Spotify users are 75 million while SoundCloud is up to 175 million. Spotify’s number of songs is 40 million while SoundCloud is 110 million. At SoundCloud, the users are allowed to upload music and can become famous. Best of all, the free version of SoundCloud is much better than Spotify’s.
Regarding personal opinion, I really like SoundCloud because it is an application to serve the community without paying too much attention to revenue and profit.
