Pandora app is coming to Pebble smartwatches

Pebble owners can now control their Pandora stations directly from their smartwatch. The service launched its first smartwatch app for streaming music Monday in Pebble’s appstore. The app, which lets users control their Pandora playlists from their Pebble, marks the first time the music-streaming service is available on a wearable device, according to Mike Grishaver, Pandora’s vice-president of product. “Using the Pebble, you can view and change stations, thumb songs up and down, skip, play and pause tracks — all from your wrist,” Grishaver said in a blog post. “The most exciting thing about the Pebble Smartwatch is that it will allow easier interaction with Pandora in cases where it hasn’t been as easy to provide feedback while listening.”
