Berlin-based music sharing website SoundCloud has just launched a new visual player for embedded links, allowing users to view artist artwork in a more visual display while listening from other websites. SoundCloud’s iconic waveform also gets an update, while key artists have been employed to promote the change including ScHoolboy Q with a sneak peek of the new track “Gangsta” from his upcoming album Oxymoron. Comedian podcasters Jake and Amir explain the new feature, alongside new tracks from The 1975 and Steve Aoki. The visual player can be customized in size and with colored buttons, and includes a continuous listening feature which instantly plays related tracks. The new waveform design will also be carried across to all other formats of the site, along with new extra features for the Pro Unlimited version. Peep the new visual player below while listening to the highlighted tracks.
