The Drive Tunes App is a great way to add audio files to your blog, website or documents. Simple upload the audio file to Google Drive. You can then open the MP3 audio file in the Drive Tunes app to play the file. You can copy the Drive Tune URL and link it to a blog post, web page or other document. It appears that you have to be log-in with a Google account in order to listen to the file but still this seems pretty cool. Drive Tunes can be found at the Chrome Web Store and it is free.
