Pandora releases Android app update with lyrics and social features
Pandora's Android users don't have to wait any longer for features that were rolled out on iOS last month: The new Pandora Android app brings social sharing, activity feeds and lyrics to Android-based mobile phones. An Android tablet app is planned for a future release date.

Pandora updated its Android app with social sharing, song lyrics and other contextual information for music geeks on Thursday. The app update, which is now available on Google Play, brings a set of features to the platform that was rolled out on the iPhone last month. Pandora CTO Tom Conrad told me at the time that it was the company’s effort to add more information for users who want it while still staying true to “the essential simplicity of Pandora.”

Check out a few screenshots of the new app, or continue reading below:

The new Android app differs from iOS with a few design choices, including the placement of buttons, but the two apps essentially offer the same features. Many of these new features could soon make their way to the iPad, Conrad told me last month. A dedicated Android app is planned as well, but won’t be rolled out until after the iPad remake.
