SoundCloud track and spotlight editing is now available on Android

SoundCloud artists can now edit their tracks and feature content on their profiles on both iOS and Android.

SoundCloud added spotlight editing and track editing for iOS users in January. Allowing creators to change their track name, tags, and more whilst spotlight editing allowed them to feature tracks and playlists at the top of their profile giving them way more control over their SoundCloud profile on the go.

The feature has now come to Android so that the broad array of SoundCloud users can whip out their phones to edit their profiles. Whilst you may not be as likely to use it out and about considering the situation at the moment – you can change your tracks title from your sofa, or add links to your description on the toilet now!

Once we’re not self-isolating you’ll be able to truly take advantage of creative control on the move with SoundCloud’s iOS and Android apps.
