Last month, SoundCloud announced that its Go+ streaming service would be integrated into a variety of DJ software, including Traktor Pro, Virtual DJ, and Mixvibes. Serato DJ Pro was also on the list, but the integration wasn’t expected until 2019.

However, in a surprise move, Serato has introduced SoundCloud integration into the latest build of the Serato DJ Pro 2.1 public beta.

To play SoundCloud tracks with Serato DJ Pro, users will need a Go+ subscription. The service costs $9.99 a month, but those looking to experiment with it can sign up for a free 30-day trial. The tracks are available for streaming at 256kbps AAC quality.

The Serato DJ Pro 2.1 public beta can be downloaded here.
