SoundCloud Relaunches The Comments Feature On Mobile Apps
SoundCloud has relaunched the comments feature on its iOS and Android apps. The music streaming platform is giving users the ability to comment on songs "anytime, anywhere" right from the convenience of their phones.
"Commenting is a core social feature on SoundCloud, with millions of comments shared each month," the company stated in a press release.
Users can leave a comment by opening up the SoundCloud mobile app, clicking on the comment icon at the bottom of the player, writing their comment, and then clicking the orange arrow next to it. Additionally, they can reply to other users' comments by clicking on a particular users' comment bubble, writing their response, and then, by clicking the orange arrow.
The relaunch of the comments feature is a win for both, listeners and creators. Listeners have the flexibility of when and where they share their feedback on a song while creators have more control and freedom on managing comments left on their songs. Overall, the feature makes it easier for them to connect.
Spotify and Apple Music lead the way in music streaming yet SoundCloud remains a strong platform for new talent especially in the hip-hop and rap genres to post their music and get discovered. Earlier this year, SoundCloud made a strong push to create awareness about the power of its platform by launching the First On SoundCloud campaign, which focused on celebrating “the inspiring stories and raw energy of creators whose careers begin on the platform."
