Twitter just made it easier for creators to share music and other types of audio with fans. The company introduced audio cards yesterday, a new feature that enables users to play audio directly in their timeline on both iOS and Android devices.
Throughout the listening experience, users can dock the audio card and keep listening as they continue to browse inside the Twitter app. The feature was launched in partnership with third-party streaming services and SoundCloud is the first to implement it.
So far, only a small group of artists have audio cards but SoundCloud says they’ll be available to everyone soon. Current users include David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Chromeo, Migos, among others.
Both Guetta and Chance the Rapper have already taken advantage of the feature by sharing new tracks:
