Let people know what you think of music and see what other’s are saying in real-time as waveform comments come to SoundCloud mobile.
SoundCloud is unique in a world of music streaming services for it’s emphasis on community. Commenting, sharing, and most importantly uploading music by yourself creates a communal vibe that service like Spotify and Apple Music just don’t have. Real-time comments are a massive part of that.
Anyone who has used SoundCloud on the web will be familiar with waveform comments. You can comment on tracks as you listen and the comment will then become highlighted during the section of the track the comment was made so you can revel in a bass drop together or fawn over a certain melody together.
This unique part of SoundCloud’s DNA is now a feature on SoundCloud’s mobile app so that the ever-growing army of smartphone listeners can take part in the musical commentary as it happens as well. SoundCloud tout it as not just a great tool for listeners to start a discussion on the music but also for artists to see exactly when people are having the best reaction to your music.
