Twitter announced, on last Thursday, 16, the arrival of music playback by streaming directly from the timeline. The novelty is a partnership with SoundCloud, which will bring its entire catalog to the social network.
Named Twitter Audio Card, the tool allows you to play songs with a simple touch of “play” on the song. When played, the song opens in a pop-up with the name, timing and link to SoundCloud.
The user still has the option to continue listening to the music and stroll through the microblogging timeline. Just click on the minimize icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
For now, the feature is only available in the mobile version, for iOS and Android devices. According to Twitter, the Audio Card is in the testing phase, but the company plans to bring “more partners and creators [de conteúdo] in the future “so that they can share” exclusive “content with users.
