SoundCloud Go subscription service launches to take on Spotify

SoundCloud may be best known for remixes and podcasts, but the company just planted its feet in the subscription streaming business. A new service called SoundCloud Go will compete with Apple Music, Spotify and others, offering unlimited ad-free streaming, offline listening and more for a monthly fee.

SoundCloud Go is launching in the U.S. with around 125 million tracks right off the bat. It costs $9.99 per month, but you’ll have to pay $12.99 if you sign up on an iOS device thanks to Apple’s extra fee. Beyond an improved ad-free experience, the new service also includes an expanded library of music straight from the record labels. That’s about 25 million tracks that aren’t available on the free version of SoundCloud.

You can still use the regular old service if you don’t feel like paying for SoundCloud Go. The company says that nothing will be changing to its core product.

SoundCloud Go is available in the U.S. now with a free 30-day trial. Just hit the source link below to sign up.
