SoundCloud has launched its premium subscription plan SoundCloud Go+ in Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland.
SoundCloud Go+ and SoundCloud’s free, ad-supported tier are now available in 14 countries. The service costs €9.99/€6.99(PT)/₣12.99 per month.
The platform provides listeners full access to more than 200 million original tracks, DJ sets, remixes and more, from over 20 million creators around the world, with offline sync, no advertising, and high-quality audio streaming.
“SoundCloud is the first place listeners go to discover what’s next in music, and directly connect with the vibrant community of creators, curators and fellow listeners who are powering the platform,” said Anthony Gabriele, Senior Vice President, Subscriptions & Marketing, SoundCloud. “SoundCloud Go+ unlocks access to SoundCloud’s full catalog and allows fans to take their music anywhere, anytime, while financially supporting the more than 20 million creators who are building and growing their careers on the platform.”
