It’s long been rumoured that SoundCloud would introduce a subscription plan for users to remove adverts. Usually the service is used to distribute recordings, samples and other audio clips around the world and now the iOS app has received an update today to add the new subscription plan, named Go.
SoundCloud’s Go service offers listeners an expanded catalogue of music and new features such as offline playback and no adverts. The price through the app is $12.99 and $9.99 on the website, the reason for the price hike is that Apple charge a percentage for any transactions made through an app. Go is only available in the US to start with and has a 30-day free trial.
