SoundCloud introduces Instagram Stories integration
SoundCloud has been working to become the No. 1 platform for music discovery for years, though users note that their mobile app has often left much to desire. Making a major move toward social media integration, SoundCloud has now announced the ability to share tracks via Instagram Stories.
Similar to the feature that Spotify rolled out earlier this year, users will now be able to share Instagram Story posts that include the album artwork, the name of the track, and a link to take their followers directly to the track on the SoundCloud app. Artists seem to be excited about the feature, with Bob Moses noting that “when creatives are able to share their songs via Stories it allows fans and followers to get the information instantly. Instead of dm’ing and commenting, they can easily click through to be taken directly to the track.”
For all the serial music sharers out there, check out the feature’s functionality below.
