Over the last couple of months, SoundCloud has stayed quite busy by releasing new features as well as revamping old ones including enabling comments on the mobile app and expanding the SoundCloud Premier program.

Today, the music streaming platform is back in the news. In a blog post, it announced that it now has integration with everyone’s favorite social media platform, Instagram. Users with the latest versions of the SoundCloud and Instagram apps on both iOS and Android devices can share what they’re listening to on SoundCloud in their Instagram Stories.

“Scanning the New & Hot charts to find your next favorite song or artist is hard work – work that now delivers an immediate reward, because easily shared, means easily heard,” SoundCloud said in the statement.

The feature is very similar to Spotify’s integration with Instagram Stories that was rolled out this past summer. Just like the case with Spotify, this feature is a win-win for fans and music creators. Fans can share their favorite songs, albums or playlists with their friends and family while music creators can direct their followers to their newest single or album.
