They have added audio playback support to their Google Currents app for Android devices. According to Google’s list of new features in the news reader, audio playback will work with publications that enable audio. Control can be achieved both in app and via the status bar with audio easily launched using icons in a story. Along with the new audio features, Google Currents can now sync read state between devices and some bug fixes were included in this release.
