Updated every Monday, the new SoundCloud Weekly is an algorithmically-based playlist based on the music that the user has listened to, liked, reposted and shared, making recommendations on what they may want to hear next.

Users can find SoundCloud Weekly at the top of their home screen in the iOS and Android app, and in the Discover tab on the web. Users must be liking and sharing sufficiently for the tab to appear.

Kerry Trainor, Chief Executive Officer, SoundCloud sais in a statement “SoundCloud has the largest, most diverse music catalog ever assembled. SoundCloud Weekly draws from our global creator community to deliver a simple, personalized music experience that connects more creators with new listeners than ever before. Our commitment to giving more creators more ways to be discovered is why what’s next in music is first on SoundCloud.”

Users Unimpressed

While SoundCloud Weekly takes inspiration from Spotify's wildly popular Discover Weekly playlists,  SoundCloud users on Twitter were less than impressed.
