Pandora receives update, brings sleep timer functionality as well as NissanConnect integration


There’s no question that Pandora radio once went relatively unrivaled in the music streaming industry, but now with new and improved rivals such as Spotify, Google Play Music All Access, Slacker Radio, etc., Pandora certainly has some catching up to do.

It looks like they’re doing just that in an update this week which will introduce a few new features.

One of the new additions is a sleep timer, which users can use to automatically shut off the music in a duration of time— however, the app will only let you set the sleep timer for 15, 30, or 60 minutes. No feature to set your own duration is included in the app.

The next feature is NissanConnect integration, which lets users integrate Pandora with their Nissan car’s steering wheel. Drivers will be able to play/pause/stop/skip songs without ever having to touch their phone.

The update is live now, so head to the Play Store link after the break to grab the new and improved Pandora.
