WASHINGTON: Streaming music application, SoundCloud, has released an update to its mobile application which has new features including related tracks, shuffle, direct playlist editing and more.

According to the Techcrunch.com, the new update is aimed at improving music discovery and the overall user experience.

The features that are added include the ability to edit playlists in the app and shuffle liked tracks and playlists. But the bigger change in terms of SoundCloud’s ability to help the users discover new music is the addition of a “related tracks” feature.

When the users find a track they already love, they can tap on the “Play Related Tracks” option in order to start a music discovery journey that sees SoundCloud’s algorithm generating a stream of other songs the users might also like.

The company says that it hosts 100 million tracks on its service. Many of those are not the big artists, but the undiscovered artists who are trying to generate a fanbase around their material.

In addition, SoundCloud has released improved social sharing features that allow the users to directly repost songs to SoundCloud and share to other social networks from both its search screen and from their list of liked tracks.

The update is only available on the SoundCloud iOS application.
