(Hypebot) — Alongside the launch of its “Fans” direct messaging tool this week, SoundCloud shared some impressive numbers. Missing, however, were new monthly active user stats.
Last year, SoundCloud had about 120 million monthly active users, down from 175 million in 2017. But other stats are on the upswing and cement the platform’s status as a destination for creators.
