Google+ users are now able to share SoundCloud widgets directly within their stream, thanks to a new cooperation between Google and the audio sharing service. SoundCloud was quick to point out in an emailed press release that this marks the first such integration of audio within Google+, but I’d expect that it won’t be the last, and that we are going to see a lot more third-party media sharing on Google+ within the next few months.
