How to Use SoundCloud’s New Revamped Messaging Service

Posted December 20, 2019 by Sheraz Ali in SoundCloud

Direct messaging, or DM for short, has been around on SoundCloud since day one. But earlier this year, SoundCloud introduced a new messaging system on its browser versions. “revamped messaging” now provides users a direct shortcut to not only share their favourite tracks and/or playlists, but to also discuss them right there and then. The record of tracks shared would stay there, which means both parties know exactly what is being discussed. This leaves little to no room for miscommunication. Keep on reading to learn how to use SoundCloud’s new “revamped” messaging service via two different, easy methods.

Technicalities to Keep in Mind

Method 1 is best when you want to reply to an existing message or to message new user. Method 2 is best when you can’t recall a follower’s exact username. Messaging them directly from their profile would be suitable here.

You cannot literally “delete” a conversation from SoundCloud. You can only archive it. When you contact its, the message will reappear in your message section.

This revamped messaging service is a great plus for creators on SoundCloud, mostly. It enables you to share creators’ music right from their playlists.

To share playlists, simply copy paste its SoundCloud link into message body. Playlist with a redirecting hyperlink will appear in sender’s message. Its actual link will not.

Using the add track option, you can also share private tracks and/or playlists.

Also, you can like, repost on comment on the track shared directly from the messaging section.
