SoundCloud Gets Google+ Sign-In, Sharing On Android & iOS
The official SoundCloud apps for Android and iOS have today been updated to add support for Google+ Sign-In, allowing you to use your Google+ account in place of Facebook or Twitter. What’s more, there’s also support for Google+ sharing.
Google+ Sign-In was rolled out around a year ago in an effort to compete with Facebook Connect, and it allows users to sign into all kinds of services using their Google+ account. SoundCloud is the latest to add Google+ Sign-In support on both Android and iOS.
So with the latest version of the app, you can sidestep Facebook or Twitter sign in by using Google+ instead. The app can access your Google+ profile picture, your email address, and other data to create your SoundCloud profile.
And you can now share to Google+, too, allowing you to pass on your favorite SoundCloud tracks with the people in your circles.
There’s also another minor tweak in the iOS version of the app, which brings back the AirPlay icon in the media player to make it easier to stream to your Apple TV, or AirPlay-compatible speakers.
