Mixcloud’s new Listen Later feature

Because we noticed that a lot of people on Mixcloud were using playlists and favourites to keep track of the shows that they wanted to listen to at a later date, we decided it was high time we built a feature to keep track of all the gems you may have discovered while browsing for new shows – or simply keeping track of shows you want to return to.

Notice in the action bar at the bottom of the mix the small clock symbol, these appear on every show on Mixcloud. All you need to do is click that and a green tick will appear confirming that your selection has been added to your Listen Later list.

You can find the Listen Later tab at the top of your home page, where all the shows you’ve selected will be compiled for you.

Every show you add to the Listens Later feature will be compiled into a list displayed as such:

By adding shows to your Listen Later list, you can then access them whenever you want, so whether it’s something you want to listen to again, or for the first time – you’ll know exactly how to get round the issue of searching through your listens or favourites.

Listen Later on mobile apps

Integrating Mixcloud desktop version with our iOS and Android apps has been created to give you a seamless experience. Here is an example of how it’s displayed on our iOS app:
