Welcome to 2016. Where the number of gigabytes on your iPod or iPhone don’t matter. Where you don’t have to worry about your favorite CD skipping. Welcome to the streaming generation of music. Long gone are the days of wishing you could play a song, but neither you or your friends have bought the song, album, etc. (but let’s be honest, who buys music anyways?)


The world we live in is run by the giants of Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and others.

But one of everyone’s favorite services is arriving with a surprising challenge to the market; Soundcloud Go.

Yes, you heard me right. The once go-to place for underground EDM tracks and your friend’s Garageband beats is arriving in the form of Soundcloud Go. Don’t be swayed into thinking this is the same old Soundcloud you used to know, because it’s changing in a big way. With licensing agreements from UMG, Sony, Merlin, and Warner, you will be up to date and listening to all the hits that are bracing the airwaves this instant.


Besides the substantial, and ever expanding library at the touch of your fingertips, Soundcloud Go is also letting you stream your music where it’s….well… unstreamable. From Mount Everest to Coachella’s horrible cell service, Soundcloud Go’s offline mode will allow you to pick and choose which songs to be available when your internet is uncooperative. Yes, that means you can listen to Justin Beiber’s sweet sweet voice anywhere and everywhere. While all these features are proving this service to be a huge step forward, not everything is free. Soundcloud Go matches it’s main competitor, Spotify, at just $9.99 a month. That includes unlimited listening and zero pesky ads. However, if you aren’t convinced, you can access a free 30-day trial here to test the waters before purchasing.

Music is constantly changing, and with more and more streaming services arriving, Soundcloud Go is trying to get a step ahead of the curve with new, innovative features, as they aim to become a household name in this musical age.
