How to Legally Download Songs from SoundCloud

Streaming is getting popular nowadays, but there is nothing that you can compare with having a local collection of music on your device ready to play at a tap. Sadly, downloading a song from some platforms is not as straightforward as others. Take SoundCloud, for example. It depends on users streaming music on both ends of its ads infested mobile application and website. This feature is why artists buy Soundcloud plays to make up for lost plays from downloads. Most of the company’s revenue comes from users who subscribe for its unlimited membership plan for $12; they get the opportunity to stream music without being interrupted by ads, they also get unlimited offline streaming through the platforms mobile client. But really, that’s a lot to shell out to download a song that an artist is offering its fans for free. So how can you download songs from SoundCloud? You can download songs on SoundCloud through the website, with Google extension, or any other third-party website. 

However, be advised that downloading an item from SoundCloud without permission will be a violation of the company’s copyright laws.
