New SoundCloud feature lets artists distribute to other major streaming platforms

SoundCloud has been steadily clawing its way back from the dead, and this new feature is helping the company get back up with the heavy hitters.

The music streaming platform now lets premium users post their stuff to their libraries on Spotify, Tencent, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Instagram and more, without having to log out. This effectively makes SoundCloud a one-stop-shop for creators posting to multiple platforms.


SoundCloud’s new feature allowing artists to upload their stuff across platforms puts them in a unique position in the battle of the music streaming platforms.

What makes this new feature even more interesting is that SoundCloud gives the artists 100% of the profits. All the royalties earned off the back of the third party services goes straight into the pocket of the artist.

This new feature is all part of the recently launched SoundCloud Premier toolset. There are a couple of eligibility rules, like being a SoundCloud Pro user, owning all rights to the music and being over 18 years old. You can find the full list of eligibility rules here.

This is a great step forward for the easy monetisation of new artists’ music. And with no additional costs, it seems almost too good to be true.
