SoundCloud has announced a new feature that’s basically Spotify’s Discover Weekly but is refreshed daily: The Upload. It’s an AI-backed solution that will present users with recently uploaded recommended content based on one’s preferences. Spotify does the same thing with Discover Weekly, and so does Apple Music with the My New Music Mix playlist.
Of course, Spotify and Apple Music will suggest any music on their respective platforms rather just recent stuff, but SoundCloud’s approach stays a bit more in tune with their business model: allow people to discover music on the bleeding edge. If you’re a hardcore SoundCloud user, you may enjoy this feature. Otherwise, there’s probably not much use to it.
SoundCloud says The Upload is rolling out to both iOS and Android users now.
