Let there be rock.
And jazz. And punk. And blues. And whatever else you groove to. Because Pandora, one of the world’s most famous Internet radio apps, is arriving this morning for Windows Phone 8. Download it here
I know you’ve been waiting for this, Windows Phone fans. The good news is that we’re rewarding your patience: The free Pandora app is not only ad-free through December 31, 2013 (a benefit that usually comes with the premium version of the service), but has features not found on any other smartphone. You heard me right: there’s no other Pandora app exactly like this one.
What’s different? Pandora for Windows Phone is the only version with a Live Tile showing what’s playing at a glance. It’s also the only version that provides direct, one-tap access from the Start screen to your favorite personalized radio stations.
And parents take note: This Pandora app is specifically designed to work with Kid’s Corner in Windows Phone 8 to automatically filter explicit song content whenever the app is launched from there. Here’s a quick video tour so you can see all these features in action.
As you’d expect, Pandora for Windows Phone 8 offers music from hundreds of thousands of artists around the world via stations you create by entering your favorite artist, song, comedian, or genre. Already a Pandora listener? The app is fully integrated with Pandora on the web. Just log in to your account and enjoy all of your existing personalized radio stations, or create new ones right from your phone. Pandora’s blog has more to say about the newest member of its mobile family. After you download it, make sure to let us know what you think.
