SoundCloud es el mejor sitio web de transmisión de música para estar al tanto de los nuevos y futuros artistas. Los usuarios de todo el mundo pueden cargar sus propios archivos de audio y canciones para que los escuche sin costo alguno.

Una vez que comiences a reproducir algo, puedes navegar por el sitio web de SoundCloud, pero aún así controlar la reproducción desde el reproductor multimedia emergente que siempre se muestra en la parte inferior del sitio web. Si le dice a SoundCloud qué música le gusta, recopilará nuevo contenido en la  sección Descubrir de su cuenta.

El sitio web está libre de interrupciones comerciales y es muy fácil de usar para escuchar música y encontrar nuevas pistas para reproducir. 

Además de ser utilizado a través de un navegador web , SoundCloud funciona a través de aplicaciones móviles para dispositivos Android, iPhone, iPad y iPod touch. Vea la página de SoundCloud en Mobile para enlaces de descarga.

My Thoughts on SoundCloud

SoundCloud is a really neat idea because it provides a place for new artists to share their music but also for the rest of us to find new and interesting sounds and songs to stream.

I really enjoy using the mobile app. I’ve only used the iOS version, which means I wasn’t able to upload my own audio, but listening, searching, and saving music was a breeze. There are only a few buttons on the bottom of the screen, and the menu for finding music by genre is easily accessible via a dropdown menu.

When logged in, the homepage for SoundCloud shows the latest posts made by the people you’re following, which is a great way to start using the site because you can instantly see updated from the people you’re interested in.

Lost of websites like SoundCloud will play commercials during songs, which can be very frustrating. Fortunately, you can listen to music free from advertisements, which isn’t something you can say for most other other similar sites.
