Pandora, the popular music streaming service available on the web and Android or Apple iOS devices, has finally made its way to Windows Phone 8. The app is rolling out to users now and should be available to everyone by the end of the day.
Once HTC Windows Phone 8 and Nokia Lumia users download Pandora, they'll be able to create personal radio stations that can draw from millions of songs in the Pandora library. They will also be able to listen to that music without having to deal with advertisements. Microsoft has reached a deal with Pandora to make the app completely ad-free until December 31, 2013. Windows Phone 8 users get that experience without having to sign-up for a premium account.
Pandora features a Live Tile showing the song currently playing and a shortcut to launch the app. Live Tiles can even pin a specific station to gain fast access. Pandora also takes advantage of Windows Phone 8's Kid's Corner feature by automatically removing explicit songs when the app is activated from Kid's Corner.
