SoundCloud Direct Messages: How Will It Work
The latest version of the SoundCloud app for Android now allows users to send or receive direct messages to both friends and artists on the platform. The company has also explained how this feature works on its official support page. In addition to sending messages, the platform will also allow users to share tracks and playlists through direct messaging.
After installing the latest update, users can click on the envelope icon at the top right of the Home screen to access their messages. By clicking on one of these messages, the user will be able to expand the message to show the entire conversation and any shared tracks.
To reply to a message, the user will be able to write in the text box below the chat. Here, they can send a direct text message or add a track or playlist that they think the recipient will enjoy listening to.
In October 2022, Russia restricted access to the music streaming app. As reported by Reuters, Moscow cited that SoundCloud was banned because it was spreading “misinformation”. Meanwhile, the company laid off 20% of its workforce in August 2022.
