Pandora for Android received a big update this morning, which brought a brand new UI to the app, in addition to a host of other new features.

Users of the app can now browse their song history if they want to find a track that they liked in the past, and those tracks can be reviewed, rated, or bookmarked whilst browsing.

If you love a particular track, you can now dive into the information associated with it to find a full bio of the artist, as well as tracks and artists similar to the song that you're currently listening to. For those of you who like to sing along to your music, you can also view all of the lyrics to the song so that you don't end up looking like this...

If you already have Pandora installed on your device, you can update it through the Play store. Users who haven't yet downloaded the app can do so for free.

      I use Last.FM quite a lot to find new music in the UK, and the mobile app isn't half bad. Also, Spotify is the obvious choice if you want a big library of music on the go.

        dont you have to have a membership with spotify?

          It's free to use it on your PC, but you'll need to buy Spotify Premium to use it on mobile. Student's can get it half price with an NUS card, which is quite nice.

    Too bad a lot of streaming services like Pandora are not available in Paraguay (South America), well, I'll just have to stick with PlayerPro and music I put into my SDCard. :S


    can someone please explain to me why there's a slide up shade just for volume? Isn't that what the volume rocker keys are for?

    I've been waiting so long for this update - the music history feature in particular.

    This update is long overdue but very much appreciated. I love the new UI and everything seems to be working great.

    Wow. I didn't know Pandora still had an Android app developer.

    I'm a Pandora One subscriber and I love using their website, but notice
    that the Android app has the "add or modify calendar events and send
    email to guests without owners' knowledge" permission. NO FREAKING WAY
    I'm installing that on my Android devices!!! Entertainment is one
    thing, but screwing around with my calendar is not going to happen.
    This needs to go viral so Pandora is forced to remove that permission.

    Bit annoying this app is still not available in Australia now that the actual Pandora site is (and its freekin awesome)
