Flipboard for Android received an update today that allows us to listen to the many audio selections the app has to offer. If you want to try it out, just go to the audio category within Flipboard, pick a topic and start streaming.

There are many audio channels to choose from such as News FM, Tech FM, Sports FM, Atlantic Records, NPR Fresh Air and a ton of others. Flipboard also lets you link your SoundCloud account and pull down content from there. Once you start listening to something, you can resume reading Flipboard content while the audio plays in the background. You can even exit Flipboard and surf the web using your browser of choice without interrupting the audio.

Flipboard will release this update for the Nook and Kindle tablets within the next few days.
