It happens so often that you forget a song that you listened to a few days back or even yesterday in some cases. Consequently, it becomes very difficult to search for that song again, as you have forgotten the lyrics and the name of the artist. And that’s where listening history comes to rescue, as it allows one to browse through all the songs they have played previously. SoundCloud also provides this facility to its users, so that they never have to remember the lyrics or the artist’s name to listen to the same song again. Moreover, you can also clear your listening history if you wish. To learn how to see and delete entire listening history on SoundCloud, you can go through this tutorial.
