Less than a week after Apple discontinued free access to its ad-supported iTunes Radio channels, SoundCloud has unveiled its new “Stations” radio service, offering a continuous, lean-back listening experience on its iOS app.
Similar to Pandora, users can listen to an endless stream of music on SoundCloud Stations, based on a track, search or other content stream (via TechCrunch).
Stations is a new way to discover the tracks you’ve never heard anywhere else, making it easy to tap into a long stream of music related to your Likes. It takes our previous “Related Tracks” feature and brings it further, simplifying the functionality and making the recommendations even better.
SoundCloud says they’ll “pull from the 100 million plus tracks” to “bring you an endless stream of awesome audio.” Stations liked by users can be accessed in their Collection, which also shows their Likes and Playlists.
To try out the new feature, grab the SoundCloud iOS app for free using the following App Store link:
