SoundCloud is relaunching a popular feature - comments from its mobile apps - alongside a new user experience in iOS and Android. It's a feature that every music service should have, and is missing from Spotify and Apple Music.
Commenting is a core social feature on SoundCloud, with millions of comments already shared each month. The new mobile experience lets creators and fans comment on a track from their phone.
Fans use the feature to give instant feedback and start a conversation directly with creators and fellow fans. The top comments on the platform are simple words of support like “Nice,” “<3,” and “Dope,” but true fandom is expressed with more colorful comments like:
“i want this melody to marry me” – on Billie Eilish’s Bitches Broken Heart.
“Thank you for the beautifully articulated odyssey” – on Blood Orange’s Do You See Something Through the Flames?
“FACE MELTER!!!” – on Flume’s Heater
