SoundCloud Go+ is available through SoundCloud’s existing apps in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, or by logging on to soundcloud.com/go. SoundCloud offers a free, 30-day trial of SoundCloud Go+, after which a monthly subscription fee applies: €9.99/€6.99(PT)/₣12.99 (Web/Android) or €12.99/€9.99(PT)/₣16.99 (iOS) per month. iOS users can avoid the App Store surcharge by visiting soundcloud.com/go.
Music fans in these markets who also subscribe to SoundCloud Pro Unlimited, SoundCloud’s premium creator subscription, can add a SoundCloud Go+ subscription for half the price. The discount offers creators the ability to unlock all of the benefits of SoundCloud Go+, and access SoundCloud’s integrations with leading DJ software companies Serato, Pioneer DJ, Native Instruments, and more. To take advantage of this offer and learn more about SoundCloud’s DJ software integrations, creators can visit soundcloud.com/go.
In addition to the launch of SoundCloud Go+, the free experience listeners love is still available and now supported by advertising. Audio, in-stream native and video advertising on SoundCloud will be provided in these newly launched markets by leading ads reseller, Targetspot. All advertising solutions are designed to fit seamlessly into the SoundCloud experience and provide brands with a variety of ways to connect with its highly engaged audience. The introduction of advertising ensures listeners can continue to experience SoundCloud for free, as well as offer creators the opportunity to be paid for the work they share. SoundCloud Go+ subscribers can opt out of these ads, enjoying uninterrupted listening as part of their subscription.
SoundCloud Go+ and SoundCloud’s free, ad-supported experience are now available in 14 countries including the US, UK, Ireland, France, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland.
