Pandora stations are about to get easier to customize. The company previewed an upcoming update to its iOS and Android app Tuesday that will give users more ways to personalize the music in their radio stations. The update, which is still in beta, is focused on improving the way users can personalize stations. The now playing menu will include a new personalization icon that allows users to more easily surface station details, including a history of songs they’ve given the thumbs up or thumbs down, and which songs or artists the station is based on. You can also use this menu to rename or add more variety to stations.
Pandora is revamping its mobile app to give its users a more personalized experience. Currently in beta mode for a number of iOS and Android users, the new version of Pandora is slated to reach all users of the app in the coming months, Pandora announced Monday. And what will you find in the new app? A redesigned interface aims to offer a simpler and cleaner design, designed to let you more easily choose and personalize your radio stations and navigate from the Station List to the Now Playing screen. A new Personalization icon will provide a better view of your stations and help you return to previously listened-to songs. The icon will take you to a new Station Details screen where you can view your station history and the number of thumbs up and thumbs down you’ve given that station. Finally, you’ll be able to dig up more data on artists. A new “swipe and tap” navigation feature will show you key details about songs so you can learn more about new artists as well as your favorite performers.
