“Finding new music should be a simple and enjoyable experience,” said Chris Phillips, chief product officer of Pandora. “Our musicologists have scored millions of songs to find the perfect music just for you. The new Browse feature makes it easy to find the music you love whether you know what you want, or need a little help discovering music you didn’t know existed.”

Browse is Your Ultimate Personalized Discovery Destination

  • Music You Want: Everyone enjoys music, just maybe not the same type of music. Browse serves up artists and stations that are only relevant to you. The experience will continually improve the more you listen to Pandora.
  • Fresh Station Recommendations: You'll get nonstop discovery of new stations based on your listening activity.
  • Take a Look and See: Have trouble committing? You can see what’s spinning on a station before adding it to your station list.
  • Music Metrics: Want to know how many other people are also listening to your favorite artist? You can see how many fans have added that station, whether it’s a pop music icon who has millions of listeners or a breaking artist who has a few thousand.

We have also made getting to your music even more effortless.

New Look and Feel

  • Always Know What’s Playing: You now have one-tap access to whatever is playing with a new Mini-Player on the bottom of the app. We also placed your Stations, Feed, Profile and Settings in the new Fly-Out menu in the top left corner.
  • Find Your Stations Faster: Organize your My Station list by Recent or Alphabetical order.
  • Go Behind the Music: Looking to connect with your favorite artist on a deeper level? We redesigned the artist pages with a fresh format, so you can find more information about the artists you love.

Browse is available for iPhones in the United States, Australia and New Zealand and will launch on Android phones soon.
