SoundCloud is pushing out an update to their Android app that brings Lollipop inspired Material Design elements, a few bug fixes and more.
The SoundCloud app for Android has been a decent conduit to the SoundCloud world of shared audio by amateur and pro alike. As a great tool for smaller musical artists to get their sounds out there, one can set up a decent playlist and enjoy music streaming on their Android device. When you are not in the mood for music, services like Audible also frequent the services, allowing you to listen to books read aloud.
This new update does not bring full Material Design to the SoundCloud app, as they have built a few of their own unique features that are not done justice with a Material Design makeover. The update does bring the Lollipop style notifications.
The full SoundCloud v14.12.18-43 update changelog reads as follows:
Lollipop design updates (not full material)
Lollipop notification support
When paused, artwork is blurred
Facebook integration update
Fixed bug that stopped stream paging prematurely
Added French translation
Fixed crash on login effecting some Samsung devices running Android v4.2.2
