Pandora Update Introduces Sleep Timer and NissanConnect Controls


Pandora issued an update on Android this afternoon that introduced a new Sleep Timer feature. Located in the options drawer at the top right, users can select from 15, 30, or 60 minute timers that will shut the service down, so that you can go to sleep and not wake up with Pandora having been playing for 8 hours. 

They are also including compatibility with Nissan touch screen and steering wheel controls in select Nissan vehicles.

Here is what’s new:

  • Fall asleep to the sounds of your favorite stations with our new Sleep Timer feature.
  • Find the Sleep Timer in your options drawer in the top right screen corner and select from 15, 30, or 60 minutes.
  • Drift off knowing we’ll play just the right amount of music for you.
  • Easily control your music using Nissan’s touch screen or steering wheel controls in select Nissan vehicles that now support Pandora through the NissanConnect App.
  • For more information please visit NissanUSA.com/connect.

    Ahhhh how nice, some people still use Pandora. Good for them.

    Really wish all access had a free radio feature with ads. Chromecast support with that would be awesome. Don’t really have a need to select my music.

  • Anyone know if they fixed the Toyota bluetooth streaming? There’s a compatibility issue with a number of models from right around 2010. Other music apps don’t have the issue, so it’s gotta be on Pandora’s end.

    I like Pandora but I hate their payment options. It’s either $0/yr or $48/yr. That’s a pretty wide gap and the reason why I’m not going to upgrade, even if I do get tired of the limitations of the free app.

      Just curious, but what other options do you want?

      • Higher_Ground

        A price that’s between $0-48 a year. They can decide the intermediate features.

    in the process of adding a sleep timer, they created a bug that doesnt turn off the diplay after a period of no activity. I guess the intention was the tablet will sleep once the battery is drained from the screen staying on the entire time. GG

    I’m tired of Sexy Back too. You and me both.

    So Daredevil is morphing into Batman for man of steel 2. My night is ruined by this news.

    It still crashes on startup if you’re on a wifi-only tablet, and you’re using Bluetooth tethering to give the tablet an internet connection.

    Thankfully I use a apk nodded Pandora. So nice

  • LionStone

    Nice, they finally did it! But it wouldn’t play for 8 hrs anyway because after so long it asks if you are still there.

    Google Music All Access FTW

      Google All Access Needs a sleep timer too. I use it to go to sleep at night, burning GB’s of precious verizon Data = ) But I have unlimited

    • T4rd

      Now that I figured out your horribly structured sentence; yes, they’re called snow tires.

  • Godzilla

    But will it support Datsun?

    • Guest

      Is datsun alive?

      • LionStone

        This one is… Datsun b210 baby!!

  • Godzilla

    Pandora is still good. Slacker is better.

  • Justin

  • dtraini30

      I’m making over $7k
      a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money
      they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and
      has totally changed my life. This is what I do, http://www.Jℴℬs34.cℴℳ
