Pandora has released a significant overhaul today, mainly focused on its mobile reach and social features. As a veteran of music streaming, Pandora has managed to survive the onslaught of Spotify – not to mention worthy challengers like Last.fm and Rdio – while growing its user base and remaining a comparatively popular choice among artists.
Still, hitting the mobile market is where every app’s future lies, and that’s the motivation behind this latest update. “After more than a year of planning, design, engineering, and testing, we’re announcing the entirely new Pandora 4.0 for iPhone and Android,” Pandora says. “This is the biggest update we’ve made to our mobile apps since we first launched.”
