I’m excited to announce that Pandora is now available as a free app for Windows 10 PCs and tablets. As a Group Product Manager at Pandora, I partnered closely with our design and engineering teams to define the features users would experience as well as the overall look and feel of the new app. Now with easier access and support for Live Tiles, Pandora provides Windows 10 users an improved personalized entertainment experience.
Designing our app on the Universal Windows Platform was a great experience for our team. We believe in the power of simplicity – particularly the ability to get to your favorite music as fast as possible. Windows 10 has a similar emphasis on simple and elegant user experiences, which brought a ton of creativity to our design process.
As a result, we were able to keep personalization at the forefront as well because all you have to do on Pandora for Windows 10 is start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs or genres and we’ll do the rest. It’s easy to create personalized radio stations that play the music you love on your Windows 10 PC.
