Over 76.5 million listeners tune into Pandora every month and listen to over 7 Billion stations. With that many people using Pandora, we make it a top priority to deliver listeners their favorite music as effortlessly as possible whenever and wherever they want. Our ultimate goal is to unleash the infinite power of music simply and easily. With that said, I’m very excited to announce that Pandora music cards are coming soon to the Google App.
How will Pandora music cards work in the Google app? Well, we know that you have a lot of decisions to make in your daily routine. With the help of Now cards, those decisions just got easier. Whether you’re unsure of what to listen to on your drive home, need a new station to motivate your exercise routine, or are in need of a relaxing soundtrack after a long day, Pandora’s Now cards can help. Inside the Google app we’ll be recommending the perfect station at the perfect time. Just for you.
Imagine it’s 5:00pm and you’re mentally preparing for your commute home. You ask yourself, “What will traffic be like? How will weather affect the trip? What Pandora station should I jam to on my way home?” As you prepare for your commute, you begin poking various apps to find the information you need. Not anymore.
Now cards in the Google app help you get the right information at just the right time — and now, they’ll get Pandora ready before you even need to ask for it. We know there are many important, split-second decisions that go into a day, and at Pandora, tuning into the right station to fit your mood is definitely one of these. That’s why we’re so excited to be a part of this launch, with our very own Pandora Now card.
Now cards are available today. The first Pandora Now card is coming in a few weeks and we can’t wait for you to try it out.
