The app, which lets users control their Pandora playlists from their Pebble, marks the first time the music-streaming service is available on a wearable device, according to Mike Grishaver, Pandora’s vice-president of product.
“Using the Pebble, you can view and change stations, thumb songs up and down, skip, play and pause tracks — all from your wrist,” Grishaver said in a blog post. “The most exciting thing about the Pebble Smartwatch is that it will allow easier interaction with Pandora in cases where it hasn’t been as easy to provide feedback while listening.”
Current Pandora users who have a Pebble device paired to their iPhone or iPad can download the new app from Pebble’s settings menu, or get it directly from Pebble’s appstore. The app is currently only available to Pebble’s iOS users, but the company said it is working on an Android version.
Pandora also updated its iPad app Monday, adding the alarm-clock feature that first rolled out to iPhone users in December. The feature enables users to set sleep timers and alarms, so they can fall asleep and wake up to their Pandora stations.
