SoundCloud started as a way for DJs to share music they made online, but now it’s a thriving community of audio content sharing that gives you music, exclusive tracks, and podcasts. However, there are multiple subscriptions, and if you are unhappy with the one you have, you might want to figure out how to cancel SoundCloud Go or switch to another level.

Cancel SoundCloud Go or Downgrade?
You can cancel SoundCloud Go if you no longer wish to use the service, but if money is an issue, you might consider downgrading your service. Your account details allow you to:
