For the last six months or so we’ve been working hard to bring Pandora to the Windows Phone 8 audience. Happy to announce the day has finally come.

While of course Pandora on Windows Phone 8 features the same listening experience you’ve come to expect from us, we really wanted to embrace the unique features of the Windows Phone 8 platform. For example, you can pin your favorite stations directly to the Start screen. Even cooler, the tiles are live and show you what’s currently playing without having to actually launch the app. If you have kids, we’ve also integrated into what Microsoft calls “Kid’s Corner” – just launch Pandora from that starting point and we’ll make sure that no explicit content plays during that session.

Pandora_Start_live_low-res-02From a design perspective, we constantly strive to keep the Pandora user experience as easy and consistent as possible across an ever-increasing variety of platforms – computers, mobile phones, tablets, set-top boxes, cars, and more – all while taking into account the additional capabilities and design patterns of each individual platform. With its visually flat elements and unique panorama concept of navigation, designing for Windows Phone 8 while keeping our consistent Pandora aesthetic was an exciting challenge and we’re thrilled with the results.

To celebrate the latest addition to the Pandora mobile app family, you can listen on Windows Phone 8 ad-free at no cost for the rest of 2013, courtesy of Microsoft. Also, be sure to check out Microsoft’s blog for a video of Pandora on Windows Phone 8 and let us know what you think of the new app once you download it.

    You guys rock! Any idea when/if you will support Alpine Head Units? That is why I still run the Android version, no "automotive" option on the win phone side.

    I have been a Pandora user for a couple years now and ran the Android app on my Motorola Defy. Now I have a Nokia Lumia 521 and I can not find the alarm feature on the Pandora app. Does it have one (and I'm blind) and if not, will it?

      Hi Mark, Sorry for the trouble. Currently, the alarm clock feature isn't available for Windows phones, but I've noted your request to see this in the future. -Katie
