Pandora background listening now live on Xbox!

Gaming just got better. With the Xbox One Summer update, you can now listen to your favorite Pandora station or mixtape while you game using Background Music.
The highly anticipated Background Music feature not only lets you personalize your music while playing, it also gives you the ability to control the music separately via the Guide pop-up or the Pandora now-playing screen. Now you can adjust the music volume, play/pause, or skip tracks – all while you play.

Go grab your controller, pull up your favorite chair and check out these stations on Pandora – perfect for background listening while playing your favorite game:

Don’t forget that in addition to being available on Xbox One, Pandora is also available across Microsoft devices including Surface tablets, Windows desktops, and Windows phones. To find out where else you can listen to Pandora, check out our Pandora Everywhere pages.
