Pandora joins the modern era with an updated Mac app
Oh, Pandora is still a thing?
Pandora is finally putting out an updated app for desktop users. Announced today, the app is now available for Mac users (macOS version 10.10 and above), with a Windows app also in the works. It is available for all tiers of users.
With so many music streaming options, I honestly kind of forgot that Pandora was even still around, but hopefully, by updating its desktop presence, it will help keep users on the platform while also inspiring others to check it out again (or for the first time).
There’s really not much more to discuss here, but let’s go over some of the features
With the new Pandora desktop app, users will get keyboard controls for playback options and thumb up/down options to help craft your stations. You’ll also get on-screen notifications featuring the artist currently playing, the song, and album artwork. Standard stuff, but hey, it’s good to see it included.
With the desktop app, you’ll also be able to quickly tweak your stations based on your mood through the new Pandora Modes feature. With Pandora Modes you can quickly tweak your stations with different modes that include “Crowd Faves, Deep Cuts, Newly-Released, Artist Only, and more.” It’s definitely an interesting feature that could be useful for listeners trying to tweak their favorite stations.
But yeah, that’s about it. Pandora has an updated Mac app now and a Windows version on the way. Neat.
