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.”
This next one's the first song on our new album! Listen here http://t.co/KVfURdxooT.
