According to the Verge, from there, stories are converted to audio for easy listening while driving.

When setting up the app, users are supposed to pick their preferred news sources and topics they'd like Newsbeat to track.

Newsbeat begins with a quick weather report and highlights any major traffic problems in your area.

Once articles start playing, you're able to pause and restart a story at any point.

Newsbeat is free, and will also be available on Android at launch.
