Twitter Introduces New Audio Card Feature With Soundcloud, iTunes

Twitter Introduces New Audio Card Feature

Much like how Twitter users are able to embed photos, videos and gifs directly into tweets, the social media platform is making it possible to embed audio as well in a new partnership with Soundcloud and Apple.

Twitter announced in a blog post on Thursday that users will be able to place a Soundcloud link in a tweet. Those viewing the link on iOS and Android devices can tap on the link and the audio will play, without leaving the original screen.

Chance the Rapper introduced a new song on Twitter via the feature on Thursday, and David Guetta released a remix.

Twitter is also partnering with iTunes for the feature — however, only select artists will work as of now. As of today, only one track is available with a Twitter Audio Card: Foo Fighters’ much-hyped new single, “Something from Nothing.”
