Music streaming service Pandora has updated its Apple iOS app to introduce a new playback method that introduces "stutter-free" music. In an attempt to address problems related to weak data connections that lead to longer buffering periods, Pandora has changed the behind the scenes connection method in order to play music faster and more reliably.
Pandora also introduce another round of unnamed "bug fixes and improvement" that most users will never know about or notice. What listeners will notice is that the app now automatically pauses whenever someone mutes his or her phone. The previous version of Pandora would continue playing when muted, causing listeners to miss out on songs, but the app now pauses playback and can resume when the phone is unmated.
