You now have even more ways to discover, enjoy and personalize the music you love with Pandora on Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch is here (for some of us) and we are excited to be one of the first apps you can experience. You can access your favorite stations, thumb songs and control playback from your Apple Watch.

Glances on Apple Watch allow you to get a quick view of the music you love – whether you are out for a brisk run or just running errands for the family. You can also easily access new music notifications and control the volume without taking out your phone.

Launching on Apple Watch marks the latest wearable technology device where Pandora is available. This also marks another opportunity for our more than 81.5 million monthly listeners to effortlessly enjoy and discover the music they love anywhere, anytime. We look forward to learning more about the wearables space from our launch on Apple Watch and will continue to explore how we can develop meaningful and truly seamless listening experiences for our listeners on new devices and technologies.

    Can you tell me how exactly this works with the iPhone? Do you listen to Pandora on the watch... Is there any speakers? I am confused as how this works on the watch? Thanks, Donna Featherston.

      Hi Donna - you would not be listening to Pandora directly from the watch (like plugging your headphones into the watch itself). Instead, the watch can be used to control Pandora on your iPhone, kind of a like a remote control. If you have any other questions, let us know: -KIm

        I love listening to pandora while running. Will I be able to leave my phone at home and continue to listen to pandora while running with the watch and Bluetooth head phones?

    For those of us who love Pandora but can't afford an IWatch how about sending one lucky winner the fancy new Iwatch and let the winner tell you how awesome it is to be able to listen to Pandora on our very own Iwatch :) Don't worry I know winning one would be a one in million chance because of all the happy Pandora listeners but a shot in a million is better than not. Thanks for always have my music ready no matter where I am or what I am doing.

      Michael, Apple doesn't sell an "iWatch" or "Iwatch." They sell a Watch. It is not designed for you to listen to Pandora through the Watch. Rather, you control your iPhone through the Watch.

    On the apple watch, pandora's "glance" is useless, I should be able to at least pause it from there, also it seems to restart app on my phone whenever I pause wait a few minutes then hit play, enjoying it otherwise

    It would be really great if the volume could be modified by the digital crown on the Apple Watch. Ipod volume functions that way and I prefer Pandora, of course, so it would be nice to mirror that functionality.

    Unfortunately, this won't end up working for me. I'm training for a Half Ironman and had wanted to access the workout stations during the race, but if my phone is nearby I'll be disqualified. If the app ever gets to the point that it's native to the watch itself instead of being used as a remote for the phone, then I'll be interested.

      I believe you have some fundamental misunderstandings about how Pandora works. Basically, it comes down to: When you can make and receive phone calls on your Apple Watch without your phone nearby, Pandora will be able to stream music to your watch without your phone nearby.

      Agree. Would really love to be able to stream Pandora from my Apple Watch on my Bluetooth headphones in the gym, without phone being nearby. Maybe Pandora could permit downloads of random music to the Apple Watch based on your stations that could then be played one time (or more--as long as the songs aren't your favorites, you probably wouldn't keep them in storage on the limited storage watch anyway).
