Twitter is adding autoplay to GIFs, Vines, and native videos on iOS

Twitter is turning on automatic playback for certain types of media in your timeline through an update to its iOS app and its website, the social network announced.

Starting today, users will notice that native videos, GIFs, and Vines all autoplay directly in the timeline when browsing Twitter without the need to tap or click to initiate playback. Sound playback for native videos and Vines will still require tapping or clicking to play to avoid hijacking the experience. Users can also initiate full playback by rotating the iPhone to landscape mode when viewing an autoplay video.

Rdio iOS app updated with iTunes Radio-like Song Stations, AutoPlay, & more

The subscription based Rdio music streaming service today updated its iOS app with a few features similar to those included in Apple’s recently introduced iTunes Radio service. The most notable new feature is Song Stations which, much like iTunes Radio, allows users to automatically create a station based on any song with the ability to view and skip upcoming tracks.

Another new feature in the updated Rdio app is “AutoPlay”, which automatically continues playing music similar to what you’ve just listened to when a station or playlist has ended. A full list of what’s new is below:

What’s New in Version 2.2.1

• Song Stations. Start a station based on any song to hear more from that artist and other related artists. See four upcoming tracks and skip as much as you want. • AutoPlay. After the music you’re playing has ended, hear more like what you’ve recently listened to. • Various UI improvements and minor bug fixes.
