Pandora's Android client gets a small update today. The first new feature is something that everyone can use: a sleep timer. In the main station view, tap the Menu icon to find the new "Sleep timer" entry. Tap it, then choose between 15, 30, or 60 minutes. After the set time Pandora will cut off, letting you drift into the arms of Morpheus without killing your battery.
The developers have also added support for the NissanConnect system, which allows the app to be controlled with the dash-mounted touchscreen or media buttons on some late-model Nissan vehicles. The 2013 Altima, Titan, Xterra, Frontier, Sentra, and the 2014 Altima and Versa with the optional NissanConnect packages should be able to control playback through the Apps menu. There's no need for a separate app on your phone, just connect via Bluetooth and go. Of course, Pandora already works with all A2DP Bluetooth compatible stereos for basic pause, play, and forward buttons.
Noticeably absent from this update: notification controls. Come on, Pandora, get on the trolley.
