Soundcloud

Soundcloud is a cloud-based music streaming service. It differs from competitors such as Spotify and Pandora in that it focuses on the social sharing of music and account holders can upload their own audio files to the site. Soundcloud offers a free account, or you can opt to pay $9.99/month for a “Soundcloud Go” account that gives you access to offline listening, more songs, and no ads. This tutorial describes how to create a playlist once you have a Soundcloud account.

You can make your own Soundcloud playlists using the android or iPhone app or using the web player. The steps below will walk you through how to make your first Soundcloud playlist on the web.
