Mixcloud main

Online mix platform Mixcloud have responded to the recent interest in live streaming with the announcement of a new Mixcloud Live feature, allowing DJs and musicians to stream audio and video performances without fear of takedowns for copyright violations.

In a statement on the platform’s help pages, Mixcloud announced:

Over the past month we’ve received an unprecedented level of demand from the Mixcloud community to build live streaming functionality. It’s a massive task that we’ve been working on day and night to get into your hands as fast as possible and we’re delighted to announce the first version is now available.

Please note that we’ve built Mixcloud Live and released it much earlier than we’d normally do and consequently there will be technical bugs and user experience flaws. Improving Mixcloud Live is now our team’s highest priority – it will get better every day.

Mixcloud Live will launch in beta stage to allow Mixcloud Pro subscribers to access the new features immediately.
