Pandora users who own an Android and feel like the app is lagging behind the iOS version can breathe a sigh of relief, as a massive update has closed the gap. The popular music streaming service launched what can only be described as their biggest update for Android to date. The user interface has been completely rebuilt. It now falls in line with the look of the iOS app. This UI update not only changes the look and feel of the app, but it also makes navigating the app vastly more user-friendly.

In addition to changing the look and feel of the app, this update also adds some key functionality. The general theme of these new features is interactivity. Android users can use the app to get access to their song history. From here, they can review, bookmark and rate songs listened to in the past.

This update also includes a brand-new feature that is exclusive to Android. They have added an exploration function that allows users to dig deeper into their music. From this new section users can see lyrics, similar artists, artist bios and more information attained from the Music Genome Project. Fear not iOS users, this feature will be coming eventually, but for now, only Android users will have it.

This looks to be a fantastic update for Pandora Radio listeners on Android. It offers plenty of new features and a slick new look.

    Guys are you covering

    The mobile app is native for both iOS and Android.
    Last week the Guvera mobile app was the number 1 downloaded music app in Australia while also being the 2nd most downloaded app overall.
    It's a great indicator given that Australia is only second to the USA is relation to digital music downloads.
    The USA launch led by ex Warner/Virgin President Phil Q will take place in a few weeks.
    For me Guvera actually has brand personality however it has a sustainable model through ad sponsor content and paid for subs.
    At the moment it's just more beans from competitors charging the same price for the same content.

    I would love to use Pandora on my phone but it drains too much battery and data. This update sounds enticing, though. Ugh!

      I almost always have a charger close at hand, so the battery isn't really a problem thankfully.
