Pandora for Android Adds iPhone, Android Tablets and Chromecast Streaming

Pandora App Update Brings Internet Streaming Radio to Chromecast

Google’s Chromecast dongle has a new customer. Pandora is lending its streaming music and media services to the site via which it will reach the target audience. Pandora officially states on its blog, "Android listeners, listen up! Today we’re excited to unveil our latest version of Pandora, designed specifically for Android tablets, and available for download starting today via Google Play."

Pandora 5.0 for Android app now supports tablet-ready UI. Pandora 5.0 features include enhanced playback to improve listening experience and improved personalization, deeper music discovery and exploration, easy access to a personalized music profile and music feed, an easy way to connect and share music with friends.

Pandoras’s Android and iOS applications are updated with an additional asset in the shape of a “Cast” panel. This will lend access to single-touch streaming to your television screen. Thus from now onwards, music will be an experience worth seeing besides listening to. Your wide screen will display an MTV-like aura and you can enjoy it at your discretion. Already, Netflix, Hulu Plus and YouTube have a presence on Chromecast. With Pandora being added to the list, the dongle startup will expand beyond its comfort zone. 

Pandora was literally the missing link that completes the jigsaw puzzle for Chromecast. Android devices and iPhones may be used to hook up with Chromecast by the user base. But iPads are incompatible with the service. Later on they will be included in the rules of the game. Worth a mere $35, this facility will be up for grabs. 

Pandora is a very famous music streaming service. As a site that lends its users access to millions of songs, singers, albums and compositions, it deserves all the praise in the world. Not only does it fully entertain the music lovers around the globe, it inspires so many to begin creating music on their own as well.
