Soundcloud / Instagram

Online music streaming service SoundCloud has officially announced a partnership with Instagram, enabling its users to share music from its service directly on the social media platform.

Revealed in a blog post, this new feature allows users to share tracks to Instagram Stories. The featured tracks that artists aim to promote are shared as a link that appears within Stories, and to actually listen to the audio, users must click the “Play on SoundCloud” link, which will then redirect you to the SoundCloud app in order to listen.

Here’s how the new feature works:

1. In the latest version of the SoundCloud app, find a track you want to share
2. Tap the share icon at the bottom of your screen
3. Tap the Instagram icon or select “Share to Instagram Stories” (depending on what phone you’re using)
4. Share the link with all your followers directly to your Instagram Story

This integration is now live, and available via the latest versions of the SoundCloud and Instagram mobile apps on iOS and Android.
