Soundcloud is a popular music streaming app. It’s a cross-platform service which is available on web browsers on any device or as a native app on smartphones. It’s a great place to listen to your favorite artists.
But if you want to download songs from SoundCloud, you may not do that with a single click. Because, like YouTube, Soundcloud also allows the artist to decide whether their content will be downloadable or not.
If a song is downloadable, you will find a Download button on SoundCloud. If you are not seeing the button, that means you can’t officially download that song from Soundcloud.
This is not the end though. There are some unofficial ways to download SoundCloud songs for free. You may need to use third-party tools for that. I will be showing a step-by-step process to download music from SoundCloud.
