Pandora made a comeback to Windows 10 Mobile platform a few weeks ago, with its new app, which also worked in Continuum. And now, a popular radio player expanded its range across all Windows 10 platforms, as it delivered a new app for Windows 10 PCs

Pandora Windows 10 App Arrives to PCs and Brings a Strange Issue

If you already used the mobile version of the app, you won’t notice a lot of changes in the PC version, as it’s only adapted to the PC display, and a couple more features are added. It also has integrated lock screen support, which is a nice touch by the developers.

There’s of course a Live Tile support, which allows you to pin your favorite radio stations to the Start Menu. You can also see what song is currently playing on your pinned Live Tile. It looks like integrating Universal apps with Windows 10’s personal assistant, Cortana is becoming a trend these days, as Pandora also offers you an option to play your music by telling commands to Cortana. Another nice addition is the ability to run Pandora in Kid’s Corner, and automatically filter the explicit content.

We also have to report about a strange issue with newly-released Pandora app that a few users noticed. Namely, when you minimize the app, it stops playing music. We remind you that users of Microsoft’s own music service, Groove Music encountered the same issue this summer. We hope the developers will soon resolve this problem with the update soon, in the meantime, you can try with solutions that helped users to solve the minimizing problem with Groove Music, hopefully some of them will work for Pandora, as well.

Let us know if you’re thrilled about the release of Windows 10 Pandora app in the comments. Or you prefer some other radio playing/music streaming services, like TuneIn?
