Direct messages on SoundCloud: how it will work
The latest version of the SoundCloud Android app now allows users to send or receive direct messages to friends and artists on the platform. The company has also explained how this feature will work on its official support page. In addition to sending messages, the platform will also allow users to share tracks and playlists through direct messages.

After installing the latest update, users can click the envelope icon at the top right of their home screen to access their messages. Clicking on one of these messages will allow users to expand the message to show the full conversation and shared tracks.
To reply to a message, users will be able to type in the text box below the conversation. Here, they can send direct text messages or add a track or playlist that they think the recipient would enjoy listening to.
In October 2022, Russia restricted access to the music streaming app. According to a Reuters report, Moscow cited that SoundCloud was banned because it was spreading “false information.” Meanwhile, the company laid off 20% of its workforce in August 2022.
