Today, SoundCloud has announced that they are increasing their integration with Google+ after becoming a Google+ Sign-In partner back in May.
A few big names are already using the new integration including Pearl Jam and Armin van Buuren, so you can check it out on their Google+ pages. The widget seems to look a little different depending on the size of the card even on desktop. If the column is a bit bigger, it looks like it does at the beginning of this post. However, if the column is a bit smaller, then the cover art of the album is removed and it looks like the one below:
|Smaller Google+ column doesn't have the album art.|
This is the first integration of it's kind with non-Google products. Do you think it could be foreshadowing an opening of the Google+ API or some other expansion of the Google+ platform for developers?
