Soundcloud Launches Beta ‘Takes Questions’: Invites Giveaway

TThis week SoundCloud launched the beta release of Takes Questions, a new experimental product that enables anyone to take questions and leave answers in audio, from their own customisable webpage.

Takes Questions “has been created to give anyone from celebrities and musicians, to bloggers and hobbyists the opportunity to more deeply engage with their fans, followers and friends in a simple-to-use and personal way.” Initially this services was created by SoundCloud’s developers in collaboration with Imogen Heap at MIDEM Hack Day earlier this year.

Takes Questions

Check out pages of those already signed up to trial the platform: Grammy award-winning singer Imogen Heap; BBC Radio One DJ Nihal; pop singer Diana Vickers; rock band The Blackout; pop punk band All Time Low; R&B act Encore; electropop band Fenech-Soler and legendary anti-folk duo Herman Dune.

And, of course, shoot us some questions: Dotted Music takes questions, too!

Everyone who signs up to Takes Questions receives their own customisable webpage, where anyone can record their questions straight from the browser. In response, they can then be answered from a browser, iPhone or Android phone and easily connected so the ‘Q&A’ is played back in sequence. As each question is answered, a tweet will automatically alert the individual and in turn, all of both of their followers.
