Well, it was only inevitable. After months of rumors, Soundcloud has finally launched “Soundcloud Go,” a $9.99 a month ($12.99 for iOS devices) service promising advertisement-free and offline streaming. On top of this, the platform offers users access to the catalogues of the three major labels as well as 20,000 independent labels. CEO Alexander Ljung stated in a press release:
“SoundCloud Go represents our vision of the future of music streaming: a platform for creators to collaborate on; for fans to discover the latest tracks, enjoy legendary music and connect with their favorite artists; and for our unique creative community to have the opportunity to be paid for their work.”
