MixCloud is a long-form Internet audio platform. The service provides a home for users who create radio shows, Podcasts and long-form audio from around the world.
MixCloud allows all users to browse and stream audio content uploaded on its site. Registered users can upload content such as radio shows, DJ mixes, and podcasts, as well as promote and distribute their content through MixCloud's own social networking widget. As of November 2011, MixCloud lifted its 100Mb limit on uploaded content and allows uploads of 500 megabytes. Registered members may join a Group, a collection of other users who share a common interest, which will periodically update the user when new content related to the Group is available.
MixCloud also provides an API through which users can search, upload, and embed its content.
Users may also share podcasts and mixes via Facebook, Twitter, and Google+
Mobile apps are available for both Android and iOS.
In December 2018, MixCloud announced a new form of subscription called "fan-to-creator". Thanks to this feature subscribers can support a favourite artist directly and contribute to the licensing cost of the music played in the shows. This innovation is an attempt by the company to find new ways of funding.
Is available in all territories.
