Flipboard has launched an update to its Android app, which will enable users with Android smartphones to take advantage of the service's audio category.

"This means that you can now enjoy everything featured in our Audio category in the Content Guide—including segments from NPR’s Fresh Air and PRI’s The World—and more: you can connect your Flipboard to your SoundCloud account to flip through your Stream, Likes, Sounds, Sets and Groups. Find something you like, and press play to listen via Flipboard," the Flipboard team explains in a blog post. "The music note in the top bar of the section controls your audio experience."

The company launched the audio feature back in May for iOS devices. It's coming to Nook and Kindle devices in the next few days.

Android users can get the updated app from the Google Play store. The update also comes with some bug fixes and performance improvements.
