SoundCloud users can create “playlists” by grouping songs or any other soundtracks together based on a specific subject or preference. Instead of having to locate and listen to each one separately, this makes it simple for you to hear them all at once. You can build your playlists and share them with other SoundCloud listeners, or you may listen to playlists that other SoundCloud users have made. You are entirely free to keep these playlists personal if you like. In this article, we will go through the procedures to sort the SoundCloud playlists accordingly.
What is SoundCloud and How to Create a SoundCloud Playlist?
SoundCloud is a music sharing website where you can post your songs to SoundCloud to share privately or publicly with a small group of friends. The majority of the features are free to use, however, SoundCloud also has paid Pro and Unlimited options. Users can move older songs to the top of their SoundCloud profile pages with these upgraded options. To create a SoundCloud playlist:
- Log in by visiting www.soundcloud.com in your web browser.
- Find a song by browsing or searching for it to use as the foundation of your playlist. When you do, select it and then click the Add to Playlist button.
- If this is your first playlist, a new window allowing you to configure your playlist’s settings will appear. Put a name for your playlist in the “Playlist Title” box by clicking there. To make your playlist “Private” (so that only you can listen to it) or “Public,” select one of the buttons below that (i.e. other people can find and listen to this playlist). Once finished, click Save.
- The page for your freshly made playlist will then appear when you click Go to Playlist.
