An audio platform calls itself SoundCloud that enables sound creators to upload, record, promote and even share their originally-created sounds, which has begun removing material from user accounts, and in some cases deleting accounts entirely. Why? Becuase it comes in response to increasing pressure from record labels on the service to ink licensing deals for hosting copyrighted content.
Although, SoundCloud started to take down DJ mixes containing unlicensed samples or material, specific tracks containing unauthorized samples and bootleg remixes of songs. Now that, SoundCloud is apparently utilizing a three-strike system for the offending account holders, if they cannot prove they satisfy the legal ownership requirements, then, they will receive a strike, first, second and after getting a third strike, the user’s account is completely taken down.
The SoundCloud version now supports other Google Cast enabled Android-powered devices such as speakers and Android TV hardware. With the latest SoundCloud music and audio app for Android, which is now available to download for free from the Google Play Store.
The Google Cast SoundCloud support also brings with it a plethora of performance enchancements, tweaks and of course, the bug fixes on the go in the latest update.
