SoundCloud Adds Play Controls, History

Online audio platform SoundCloud today in a blog post announced it has added new play controls.

“You told us that you wanted to have more control when you’re playing music & audio on SoundCloud. We heard you. Which is why today we’re rolling out our brand-new play controls across soundcloud.com,” the blog post reads.

The controls, which can be found in the upper right-hand corner of SoundCloud, allow audio aficionados to:

• Pause/play;
• Skip to the next sound; and
• Go back to the previous sound to repeat once or multiple times.

The new features also include a play history — users can select “previous” to return to music/sounds that were listened to earlier during the same SoundCloud session.

In addition, if you click on the title of the current song/audio file playing, it will take you directly to the waveform and comments.
