Amid all the excitement (and commotion?) surrounding the launch of Apple Music, SoundCloud has released a major update to its official app on iOS.
On any track in a list, you can tap the corresponding ellipsis button to access several new options.
You can now also customize your playlists by adding tracks to or removing tracks from them right within the iOS app, instead of having to do it on SoundCloud’s website. Furthermore, you can now repost tracks on SoundCloud and share tracks on other social networks straight from the list of your liked tracks as well as from search results.
SoundCloud is also available for Apple Watch with its official extension for the wearable device, which provides wrist-accessible options for discovering and playing audio on the popular platform.

To shuffle the tracks in a playlist, tap the three dots next to any playlist and choose Shuffle from a new set of options.
We’ve significantly upgraded your listening experience on the SoundCloud iOS app, adding more functionality to playlists (shuffle and edit your playlists), as well as the ability to shuffle your likes.
As many of you may already know, SoundCloud just recently came to agreement an with Universal Music Group regarding the label's massive catalog.
Along with the announcement came hints that SoundCloud is going to shift toward a "freemium" model.


Those labels and artists who decide to "disable" app streaming will block access by 3rd-party services, and in return hope that users will choose to listen to their music directly on SoundCloud. I'm thinking out loud here, but if things play out in a positive manner, the ecosystem will stay "as-is." 3rd party services will continue to be able to use the API on a limited basis, with major label tracks generally being off-limits.
In turn, we'll cast light on the up-and-comers, who will eventually be signed to major labels and ironically have their music blocked from 3rd party streaming (the method they used to gain attention in the first place). This update introduces new features that open up opportunities for discovering new tracks to enjoy on SoundCloud’s popular online audio streaming platform. That’s right: At long last, the app now lets you listen to tracks in your collection at random rather than the usual ways of listening to them in specific sequences. To shuffle your liked tracks, just tap the new Shuffle button at the top of the Likes screen. Just tap “Play related tracks” and SoundCloud will tap into its algorithm to provide a stream of similar tracks from its catalog. We’ve also included a play related tracks feature that makes discovering your next new favorite even easier. They'll be able to maximize revenue, and in doing so mature into the company that investors envisioned them to become. This "block" will also be likely to flow through to those producers who are mixing and editing artists from major labels.


To shuffle the tracks in a playlist, tap the main ellipsis button in the playlist and tap the Shuffle Play option in the contextual menu. This is useful if you wish to check out more songs and artists that sound and feel like the ones you already like.
3rd-party services like Hypem, 8tracks and Indie Shuffle will continue to have a "limited" API selection.
Similarly, the labels will be able to capture "missed" revenue from the massive amount of streams on their website. In turn, 3rd party apps will have a "limited" choice as far as which songs they can stream. This forces us instead to focus on the new up-and-coming acts, which I suppose gets to the ethos of what we're all about: finding good new music.
