The SoundCloud platform recently added a new feature that allows users to directly support artists. The new feature will help musicians who are unable to perform concerts due to COVID-19 and now rely on financial support through online platforms.
In order to address this, the company added a button to pages on the SoundCloud platform, that will link to an artist's PayPal, Bandcamp, and Patreon. This means that fans will be able to directly support artists through this uncertain time. The button will also be added to the platform for an indefinite amount of time.
Above the new button reads an explanation which states, “The COVID-19 virus has impacted the creative community around the world. Show support for your favorite creators.”
