SoundCloud App for Apple Watch Released
Nearly a month left in release of the much awaited Apple Watch and almost every day Apple announces new apps to its Apple Watch element. Earlier today, it was announced that SoundCloud is on board and will be introducing the Watch app with its release.
Recently, SoundCloud updated the free iPhone and iPad app, which means that your favorite music streaming app will be available at your wrist. Apple Watch consumers would now be able to stream music directly from their wrists without having to pull out their phones.
This app is coming out with some expected features. That is not the end, it has some unexpected features as well which some might consider as useless. However, it is never useless to have extra features at your finger tips.
The wearable device lets you see what is being played on your SoundCloud, which is actually the most important and understandable feature to make it to the device. All you have got to do is swipe upwards and see what is currently being played. The interface will show song’s artist, title and artwork.
Furthermore, if you want to discover new content other than what is being played, you can swipe right and left to explore SoundCloud content. Single tap will pause and play the song while ‘Force Touch’ will add the song to your collection.
Most of the people were not expecting SoundCloud to offer exploration option and ‘add to collection’ was a definite shocker. Extra features never harm however, Apple Watch apps are said to be a little less snappy. Unless the extras do not affect the performance, you are all good to go. You can download the app from here.
