I am incredibly excited to announce that as of today Pandora is available for download on Xbox One devices! The timing of this launch couldn’t be better as Xbox One users can now tune into their favorite Pandora stations when celebrating with family and friends this holiday season.

Pandora for Xbox One is a best-in-class application native to Xbox One and loaded with really exciting and innovative new features. We customized our HTML5-based Pandora for TV interface specifically for the Xbox One, and also stayed true to Pandora’s mission of being the effortless source of music for Pandora listeners. Pandora on Xbox One takes advantage of all the functionality the platform has to offer and our team built the application to look amazing on the biggest screen in your home.

Our Xbox One listeners will have more ways to get to their favorite music as quickly as possible as Pandora for Xbox One provide users with two new views, one of which displays recently listened to stations and the other which displays cumulative time spent on specific stations. Pandora for Xbox One also includes a persistent mini-player, which provides quick access to playback controls while browsing within the application. Listeners can also interact with Pandora using Kinect Gestures and Voice Commands, and lastly, Xbox One listeners will be able to Snap Pandora to the screen in order to simultaneously listen to Pandora and play a favorite game.

Gaming consoles, especially the Xbox One, are immensely important devices for Pandora; they are the “most interacted with” device in the home after TVs and there are tens of millions of gamers in the U.S. More importantly, we know that gaming and Pandora listening are a natural fit. 76% of our male listeners ages 13-34, who identify themselves as console gamers report that Pandora often serves as their background music while gaming. We are thrilled to offer them a seamless way to listen to their favorite stations while gaming or at home.

We love Pandora on Xbox One and we think our listeners will too!

    Why do they not show the lyrics anymore? I used to love singing along to songs with help of the lyrics because no matter how much you listen to a song, sometimes you just can't get'em all right.

    So... You guys ever planning on fixing this app? Shit, even when I play pandora through IE on the Xbox one it does the same thing. Within 20 seconds of a song's start, it just stops. I have to skip to the next song.

    I'm seeing the same posts since January, but no solution has been shared yet. Does anyone know why the app stops between each song and/or what to do about it? Being such a clearly widespread and known glitch, it seems to me that enough data should have been collected to resolve the issue. Looking for any solution beyond emailing pandora to tell them more about a well established problem.

    Sadly, unless you're using your Xbox One specifically to listen to Pandora and play puzzle or "casual" games, the snap feature isn't what gamers are looking for. The quarter of missing screen space causes the game to mitigate even MORE display on blank top and bottom bars in order to preserve the aspect ratio of the game. Having the ability to run and continue playing music in the background is, in fact, what gamers want.
