Auryo, a cross-platform unofficial client for Soundcloud


Soundcloud is a fantastic platform to be able to search and listen to music, but it has a big disadvantage in Linux: you can only use it in the browser. To resolve this limitation, developer Jonas Snellinckx created Auryo, a Soundcloud desktop application.

Gone with Auryo are the days when they were forced to use a browser to stream Soundcloud content.

Auryo is a cross-platform unofficial SoundCloud desktop client which features a striking and aesthetically pleasing user interface design, along with support for SoundCloud features.

Unlike when using SoundCloud in the browser, Auryo allows them to continue working while enjoying their music without the need to go back and forth between your desktop and the browser.

Auyro takes to the official Soundcloud API and organizes a custom interface around it. The result is an impressive (and easy-to-use) desktop version of SoundCloud, which behaves like a proper native application.

How the app supports keyboard shortcut (and MPRIS integration), you can play, pause and skip tracks using your keyboard. You can leave the app playing in the background and keep your attention focused elsewhere.

Among its main characteristics that we can highlight of Auryo we find:

  • Free download and installation available on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems.
  • Listen to playlists, stream and more
  • Electron-based desktop application.
  • Discover new songs.
  • Add music to playlists.
  • Read comments.
  • Search for artists, tracks, playlists.
  • Follow and unfollow artists.
  • Share and give as clues.
  • Use the integration of media keys and MPRIS.
  • Provides options for liking and sharing tracks.
  • It offers excellent sound quality.
