SoundCloud goes after Apple Music and Spotify with its very own Go+ student discount1
the company is finally treating students to a Spotify and Apple Music-like discount. Simply by confirming their enrollment at a Title IV degree-granting college or university, new and existing users can get full access to all the premium SoundCloud Go+ perks for $4.99 a month. Otherwise put, students will pay the typical SoundCloud Go fee for Go+ features.But now
Available on iOS and Android devices, as well as directly on the web, SoundCloud Go+ comes with high-quality audio support, no ads, unlimited on-demand streaming capabilities, offline listening functionality, and an expanded catalog of over 150 million tracks. The non-Plus service tier actually doesn't cut as many corners as you might expect, but it lacks roughly 30 million "premium" songs and comes with a preview "feature" that's largely useless (not to mention annoying), offering 30-second samples of off-limits tracks.
