Pandora UWP for Xbox One can now play music in the background

Thanks to an update rolling out today, users of the UWP version of Pandora will now be able to enjoy music while using other applications or while playing games.

Mike Ybarra from the Xbox platform team announced the update on Twitter, stating that the app is rolling out now.

Pandora will update over the next 24 hours to include background music on Xbox One functionality! #Xbox

The old Pandora app is still available in the store, so make sure you search for and download the new UWP app if you want to take advantage of this update.

Pandora has a free version supported by ads, or a paid subscription experience that removes the ads. At present, the service is only available in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, but the team is exploring the possibility of bringing the service to other territories.
