In what is being seen as the company’s success going from strength-to-strength, popular music platform SoundCloud has launched its subscription service, SoundCloud Go in Germany at a €9.99-per-month rate.
The service offers a healthy mix of premium music releases and amateur uploads, and has been pitched by SoundCloud as “giving music fans access to the largest music catalogue in the world.” It has over 135 million tracks.
Meanwhile, while SoundCloud did launch Go in the US in the month of March, it is yet to report and/or confirm subscriber numbers.
In a recent release, SoundCloud made an announcement, recommending users to sign-up at SoundCloud.com to avoid the “app tax”, which is the 3-per-month surcharge required on the iOS app store.
Alexander Ljung, co-founder and CEO of SoundCloud, said “It’s been a big year for SoundCloud, capped off with the launch of SoundCloud Go in our home country.”
In November, SoundCloud along with music licensing and processing service ICE signed a deal which protects the online rights of GEMA’s music repertoire Germany.
Apart from the latest addition of Germany SoundCloud Go is available in the UK, USA, France, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and Australia. Subscribers can take a free-of-cost trial for the first thirty-days, after which a $/£/€9,99 subscription fee per month is levied.
SoundCloud Go also has some competition in the shape of its Pro Unlimited creator subscribers, who upload tracks and pay for extra features and thereafter subscribe to SoundCloud Go at a discounted price of €1,99.
