Pandora adds recommended stations and lock screen integration in latest update

Windows Phone users have a lot of options when it comes to streaming music. Pandora is one of them. Their app has just received an update that should improve user experience. A change log is included in the store listing, so head past the break to take a look.

What’s new in version 1.1:

  • Lock screen integration
  • Recommended Stations
  • Richer sharing

We like the new Recommended section. It looks like Pandora analyzes the music you have played recently on your device and then recommends new stations.

Pandora is free, personalized radio that plays music you love. Just start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs, comedians, or composers, and Pandora will create a custom station that plays similar tracks. This app has been available on iOS and Android devices, but Windows Phone 8 users have been enjoying ad-free personalized radio at no cost, courtesy of Microsoft. The offer lasts until the end of 2013, though. Download it now from the Windows Phone Store or scan the QR code below.

Is Pandora one of your favorite music streaming apps for Windows Phone or do you use something else? Let us know in the comments!

Thanks for the tip, Ismael!
