SoundCloud Controller is a free Chrome extension to control SoundCloud tracks using a small panel. You will be able to play/pause a track, switch to next and previous tracks, and toggle repeat the current song using that panel. This is helpful when you are working on some other tab in Chrome and want to change or pause the SoundCloud track without switching to that particular tab.
Apart from that, you can also set Global hotkeys to pause/resume a song, go to next or previous track, etc. The benefit of settings the global hotkeys is that even when you are working on some other browser for the time being or on the desktop, you will be able to control SoundCloud tracks playing in your Chrome browser.
Above you can see how easily I was able to switch to tracks and pause/resume a SoundCloud track without accessing the tab where SoundCloud is opened.
