Mobile uploads to SoundCloud are now supported

SoundCloud have finally added the ability to upload tracks from your smartphone on iOS – and soon Android.

After years of requests from SoundCloud fans and users, the music streaming platform have finally made mobile uploads available. iOS users can now head to their SoundCloud app and upload directly from their phones to their profile.

The feature is rolling out this week to all their iOS versions of the mobile app to make uploading possible wherever you are. They say that an Android version will also be coming soon.

Whether you’re on the move in the streets, sat in a cafe producing, or just finished listening through to your new track at your friend’s place you can simply head to the mobile app and press the upload button to add tracks to your profile.

Here’s how to upload from your iOS SoundCloud app:

Within the iOS app, tap the upward-pointing arrow on the top right of your home screen.

Upload from home screen

Select any audio file from your phone (upload lossless HD files like FLAC, WAV, ALAC or AIFF for best audio quality).

Choose a file

Ensure your metadata is correct or add artwork, a new title, genre(s) and description on the spot, and select whether you want your track public or private.

Select track metadata
Select a genre

Tap save (top right).

Save uploaded track

Head to your profile to see your newly uploaded track. 🎉

And then send to Instagram Stories, text your friends your private link, pitch to press – all from the palm of your hand.

SoundCloud have been pushing to make their mobile apps as functional as their website recently. Earlier this year they added track editing and spotlight selections on mobile so that creators can easily customise their tracks and profile on the go.
