Pandora's Android TV app has hit version 4.0 with Google Assistant support and there are a handful of other improvements and changes which have been included here too. For starters, with the support for Google Assistant now integrated with the app users can search for or play songs through Pandora on their Android TV devices much easier than before because all they will have to do is speak to the Android TV device and ask Pandora to search for a song or to play something specifically.
In addition to support for Google Assistant the latest version of Pandora for Android TV is also introducing the capability for users to do quite a few more things. One big improvement to the app is letting uses search for and browse songs they want to play and then stream them, something which hasn't been a part of the Android TV experience with Pandora until now. It's these premium subscription features which are likely to add even more value to using the Pandora app on Android TV devices, as it will now be able to do most of what the Android app will do, if not everything. What's more, is that users who do tend to stream music through the Pandora Android smartphone app won't have to feel like they won't be getting the same experience as they do when they use the phone and this makes things more streamlined which is a good thing for Pandora because it should improve the user experience.
If you're the type who likes to be a little more hands off in terms of playing music through your streaming services then you're in luck, because the new version of the Pandora app on Android TV now has the autoplay feature and if you toggle this on you can just hit play and let things go as Pandora will take care of everything by continuing to bring up songs that were similar to what you were already listening to. Lastly, there's also a greatest hits playlist of sorts which will cycle through all of the songs you have ever tapped the "thumbs up" button on. If you already have Pandora installed on your Android TV device then you should see the update available.
