The Google Audio Player is designed to provide audio playback capabilities for Google Reader. The audio player is a Flash object which makes it possible to stream MP3 and other audio files. Although it is designed for Google Reader, webmasters can utilise the audio player to provide on-site playback of audio players. Simply embed the Google Audio Player on your website to provide MP3 playback to visitors.
