Paris, June 1st, 2020

This communication is following our several shutdown announcements since April 14th, 2020 via email and live notifications on the platform.

Hi everyone,

It’s been 7 years together…

90,000 active playlists followed by 210 million fans in streaming services.

35,000 curators playlisting from Soundsgood across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, SoundCloud, Napster, Qobuz, late Rdio, etc.

Congrats!

So… why the change?

Soundsgood has always been free to support the diversity in our community from music editors to journalists, radio hosts, artists, festivals, celebrities, footballers, youtubers, sports coaches, independents and aficionados.

We’ve financially powered the platform thanks to B2B activities with record labels: adapting our technology to better serve artists in the streaming era. …


Whether you create your own music or just share songs with a unique new and cool discovery experience, there are several approches to share music on your web app / website.

What 3 options do you have?

You can of course develop your own player, but you will need to spend weeks contacting each record labels to clear the music rights and updating your song catalog will not be that flexible. A quicker solution would be to use a turnkey webradio solution, but in the end, they can come up quite pricey and do not really follow people’s new music consumption habits.

Our vision at Soundsgood is to work with all streaming services instead (Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, YouTube, SoundCloud, Napster, Qobuz, etc.). This way music rights are already cleared for tens of millions of tracks, and people can follow you and your playlists directly in the music apps they use everyday. …


NEW RELEASE

All your playlists are now streamable with YouTube Music.

You don’t need to convert your playlists to YouTube Music, they are automatically available there!

When sharing the Soundsgood player on your social networks and websites, your listeners can now pick YouTube Music to stream and save the playlist.

They will stream YouTube videos as usual. They can also save the playlist, or save single-tracks directly in their YouTube Music:

YouTube Music does not support yet deep links on smartphones. Hopefully they will fix that soon! In the meantime, we redirect listeners to the good ol’ YouTube. …

Dear music influencers,

In today’s new release, the listening experience for your Spotify fans got significantly upgraded! 💪🎵

As you well know, when sharing the 🎧 Soundsgood Universal Player, your fans can pick their favorite service to stream and follow your playlists (Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, etc.).

Until recently, listeners choosing Spotify would then see a Spotify widget which only featured Spotify-matched songs. This was quite unfortunate since your playlists often include rare SoundCloud / YouTube links and new emerging artists that have not made their way yet onto Spotify.👩‍🎤🚀✨

Spotify listeners can now enjoy your full playlists, not just the Spotify songs.

This upgrade allows your Spotify listeners to enjoy ALL the songs in your playlists, no matter if they are available on Spotify or…
