How To Activate SoundCloud On Your Console?

In this section, we’re going to first take you through how to activate SoundCloud on Your Gaming Console.

The main two we are about to look at are the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. Both consoles are very similar when it comes to activating SoundCloud, however, there are a few differences.

For example, the PS5 doesn’t allow you to download songs from your library, while the Xbox Series X does.



Settings Menu

The process for both consoles is pretty much identical so let’s jump right into it. First off, head over to the console’s settings menu, which should be found under ‘Settings’.

Once inside, scroll down until you see ‘Sound Settings’. If you can’t find it then you may need to go back up one level and search again.



Bring Up A List Of Audio Outputs

Once you reach the sound settings page, you’ll want to navigate to ‘Streaming’ and press the ‘+’ button next to ‘Audio Output’. This will bring up a list of all available audio outputs.



Select The Output

Select the output you wish to use (e.g. HDMI) and then click ‘OK’.



Select Playback Mode And Choose Option

Now, you’ll want to select ‘Playback Mode’ and choose between ‘Connected’, ‘Local Media’, ‘Offline’, or ‘Auto Offline’.




Choose whichever option suits you best and then click ‘Save’. You’re done! That’s it! It really couldn’t be easier.


How To Activate On Mobile

Now that we’ve covered how to activate SoundCloud with your gaming console, let’s move on to mobile. There are several ways to activate SoundCloud on your phone, depending on what kind of device you own. Let’s take a look at them below.




If you happen to own an iPhone, you can access SoundCloud by heading to the Apple App Store.

Simply open the store and search for ‘SoundCloud’ and install the app. After installing the app, you’ll be able to log in using your username and password.




If you happen to have an Android device, you can simply visit Google Play and search for ‘SoundCloud’ and install the app directly from the play store.



Windows Phone

There isn’t currently a Windows Phone app for SoundCloud, however, you can still stream content via the web browser. Head over to and sign in with your credentials.




Unfortunately, BlackBerry users don’t have access to SoundCloud yet, but they can check out our other guides for more information.

Activate SoundCloud With A TV Stick

If you happen to be looking to stream content from SoundCloud on your television, you’ll need to purchase a set-top box such as Roku, Amazon Firestick, etc.

These boxes usually come pre-installed with apps like Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, etc., so you won’t have to worry about downloading anything extra.

However, if you’d rather not spend money on a new streaming stick, you can always try searching online for something cheap.
