SoundCloud Integrates With Foursquare, Facebook And Songkick

SoundCloud, the fast-growing audio platform, announced a series of new integrations and features aimed at providing further sharing opportunities for sound creators.

For the first time, SoundCloud has released updates across every platform - the web, mobile and apps - so no matter how creators and partners are using it, SoundCloud is providing a deeper, more meaningful experience.

From today, SoundCloud’s more than three million registered users can share their sounds on Foursquare, with the option to "shout out" their recordings when they check-in using the free SoundCloud iPhone or Android app. They will also be able to sign-up or login using Facebook connect on SoundCloud.com.

For it’s core community of musicians, SoundCloud has also integrated with concert tracking site, Songkick, enabling artists to easily add their upcoming gig dates directly onto their SoundCloud profile and keep all their tracks and tours in one place.

Alexander Ljung, SoundCloud founder and CEO, said: "Every cross-platform integration we make is like another lego brick being stuck together, with the ultimate goal of building the best sound sharing and creation experience that spans the web. By collaborating and working together, lego brick by lego brick, we’re all making sound creation more accessible to everyone, everywhere.

"We have now had more than one million downloads of our iPhone, Android and Mac desktop apps in just a few months, so it’s a clear signal from our users that they want SoundCloud across multiple platforms. We're excited about working with more platforms and applications to allow our users to take SoundCloud even further."

Additional features launching today, include:

Android. Track commenting and sharing to Twitter and Facebook for Android users, previously only available for the iPhone; as well as two bespoke SoundCloud widgets for the Android homescreen
