SoundCloud, the online music distribution platform, now has ten million users.
SoundCloud is super popular
The online music streaming and distribution platform SoundCloud has celebrated hitting an epic milestone – it now has ten million registered users.

In just five years it has gone from relative obscurity to a household name, becoming the chosen platform for aspiring musicians to showcase their work.

"Ten million is not just a number to us, it is proof that we're not alone on our mission to unmute the web and it gives us goose bumps to know that more than ten million people from around the world have been finding value in SoundCloud in many different ways," it stated on its website.

It revealed that over five million official SoundCloud apps have been downloaded; 10,000 apps are currently in development; and its reach is beginning to extend outside of music.

For example, 3.3 million different tags attached to audio that is uploaded to the site shows the variety of sounds that people are posting online.

This includes, for example, efforts by big organisations like Penguin Books UK, who are using the website to publish spoken-word content.
