Wattpad Adds SoundCloud Integration

By Dianna Dilworth 

Writers can now add an audiobook or a soundtrack to their eBooks published on the online writing community Wattpad. Wattpad has partnered with SoundCloud to integrate the audio platform into its app.

The new feature allows users to add audio files to their Wattpad stories. Users can create their own clips, or choose available audio from the SoundCloud library.

“Audio clips can bring stories to life. Wattpad writers can use sound effects to add impact to a story, narrate an excerpt, or share a playlist to entertain their readers in a new way,” statedd Tarun Sachdeva, head of product at Wattpad. “The integration of SoundCloud into Wattpad’s Android app means a richer storytelling experience for millions of people around the world.”
