Google Currents Adds Support For Audio Playback


Google has released an interesting update for Google Currents, which adds support for audio playback, along with various other minor updates such as synchronization of post read-states between devices.

You will now be able to play audio from within Google Currents itself, the update adds a complete ‘media bar’ with stop/start/next track/previous track controls. The ‘media bar’ also works in the notification panel, so you can easily pause, skip, or stop an audio transmission even when you’re not in the app.

Audio playlist for editions with audio

Audio media bar in app for stop, start, next, previous

Story scanner audio icons for launching Audio directly
