MP3 streaming platform SoundClound has announced that it now has 250 million listeners per month. To put that into context, Spotify currently has about 25-30 million active users and Twitter ‘only’ has about 220 million active users.
SoundCloud, then, is becoming huge and they are now quite justifiably calling themselves the ‘audio platform of the web’.
Announcing the numbers at TechCrunch’s Disrupt Europe event today, SoundCloud co-founder and CEO Alexander Ljung said:
We’ve had a really good year, we’ve been growing very fast — we are the audio platform of the web. In any given hour, we’ll reach nearly every country in the entire world.
He also revealed that SoundCloud ‘creators’ can now link their account to their Instagram account to easily choose personal cover art for their sounds.
