Windows 10 Pandora app

Pandora has finally released a new version of their app for Windows 10 users with more features and all of the main functionality of the Mac version.
The app is free to download but does naturally require a paid subscription to access the Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium services which can be accessed alongside the free content.

Here are some of the new features in the Windows 10 Pandora app:

  • Keyboard controls that let you play, pause, replay, skip, shuffle, or thumb up/down songs right from your computer keyboard.
  • On-screen song notifications that graphically display the artists, albums, and song titles for the music that’s currently playing.
  • App-based controls for our new Pandora Modes feature, which lets you customize the music you hear on your Pandora stations using selectable “modes” including Crowd Faves, Deep Cuts, Newly Released, Artist Only, and more.

Pandora is still a popular streaming service in some regions such as the United States but it has pulled out of some markets in recent years after being unable to compete with rival music services offered by the likes of Spotify and Apple. For example, Pandora completely left Australia in 2017.

A new app for Windows 10 is a good sign that the company is planning to be around for the long haul but it remains to be seen if it can regain some of the ground lost to Spotify.
