Instead of photographing the song you want to share, the new feature incorporating SoundCloud with Instagram now lets you upload the track directly to your story.
SoundCloud has announced that the stories that users upload to Instagram can now contain your favorite tracks. With just a few clicks on your screen, people and your friends can now listen to your music at all times.
Sharing your music choices with your friends is extremely simple! In the SoundCloud menu simply click 'Share' and select 'Share to Instagram Stories'.
When users move inside stories of Instagram and the song / music track you shared is shared, all you have to do is press "Play on SoundCloud" to get to the app and listen to it.
In the era of using social media to promote internet reputation, platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and YouTube can launch the singing career or promote musical work unknown to the general public. Now the new artists, with Soundcloud and Instagram, with an easy process, will be able to share musical creations with their fans, and beyond that, musicians with a specific promotion method through Insta stories they can get instant feedback faster than ever.
Last May, the Spotify company announced a similar feature that works in a similar way, but of course only with musical pieces that are in the Spotify database. Just a month later in June, Instagram added the ability to add licensed background music to your posts. The new integration of SoundCloud offers greater flexibility in non-licensed music sharing options.
The feature is now available through the latest versions of SoundCloud and Instagram for iOS and Android. For music lovers, this is another chance to discover new rhythms. For artists, there is another chance to promote their tracks from SoundCloud in an even easier and more efficient way.
