Twitter will now allow its users to listen to songs, podcasts and other audio content in their timelines within the Twitter app, while they continue to scroll through other tweets.
The micro blogging site has rolled out a new version of its Audio Cards with SoundCloud and Apple as launch partners on Thursday this week. The feature will showcase the new experience with music tweets from the Foo Fighters, David Guetta and Chance the Rapper.
With the help of this update meant for Twitter’s iOS and Android apps, users will now be able to expand the audio card for more details or dock the audio player with one swipe, which will not create any hindrance while they browse through their timelines. Earlier, users had to leave that audio tweet or open the audio file in a browser to continue browsing their timeline.[useful_banner_manager banners=28 count=1]
The primary third-party partner of this feature at its launch is SoundCloud and so every SoundCloud link in a tweet can be played and docked. However, as of now, only a few SoundCloud creators have access to the feature.
