SoundCloud to switch off its ‘classic mode’

By | Published on Friday 9 May 2014


SoundCloud HQ has announced in a mass-mailout to users that it’s shutting down its old design, leaving only its fancy ‘new’ interface, which came into play at the end of 2012.

SoundCloud has maintained its ‘classic’ mode as an option alongside the updated one all this time, but says that running the two sites has caused “increased outages on both sites and slowed the platform as a whole”.

The old SoundCloud will make way for its young rival, which had a redesign back in January, gaining bigger images and its love-or-hate continual streaming feature, at some point next week.
