Comcast Xfinity X1 owners who like to use Pandora will be delighted to find out that the music service has overhauled its app for the Xfinity X1 platform. The new app brings an easier sign-in procedure and it also provides access to Pandora Premium and Plus features. The app’s design has been overhauled as well so it’s going to look a bit different.
Pandora users on Comcast Xfinity X1 can now access Pandora’s Premium on-demand streaming service as well as its ad-free radio Plus stations for the first time. The app works with the X1 Voice Remote to enable users to effortlessly access their music across all levels of service.
With Pandora Premium, subscribers can search and play for any song, album, playlist or station. Pandora Plus gives them access to ad-free radio stations with additional skips and replays.
Users can access their favorite music quickly by simply saying “Pandora” into the X1 Voice Remote. They can access specific songs, albums or playlists with simple commands like “play ‘Santa’s Coming for Us’ by Sia on Pandora.”
This is a great improvement over the previous app which only allowed access to the free version of Pandora on Xfinity X1 devices. The updated version of the Pandora app for this platform is available for download starting today. The simplified sign-in experience enables immediate Pandora playback on X1 devices.
