Twitter Inc will allow users to play podcasts, music and other audio clips direct from their timelines, or message feeds, via a new feature designed in partnership with Berlin-based audio-streaming service SoundCloud, Reuters reports.

The micro-blogging site introduced "Audio Card" last week, which allows users to listen to a variety of content whilst browsing their timelines.

"With a single tap, the Twitter Audio Card lets you discover and listen to audio directly in your timeline on both iOS and Android devices. Throughout your listening experience, you can dock the Audio Card and keep listening as you continue to browse inside the Twitter app. We're launching this new audio card in partnership with third-party streaming services. The first partner for streaming on Twitter is SoundCloud." Twitter said in a blogpost.

According to the blog post, Twitter users can listen to content through SoundCloud's partners which include: NASA, the Washington Post, CNN, David Guetta, Coldplay and Warner Music but the company plan to make the service available to more partners and creators in the future.

"Many more musical artists and creators will be able to share exclusive, in-the-moment audio to millions of listeners on Twitter," the company added.
