Pandora today released its official app for Google Glass, letting owners access their personalized radio stations on the go. The service supports listening in three ways: built-in speaker and bone conduction (no headphones required), single earbud included in the Explorer kit, and the
Double earbud accessory (micro-USB).
You can control the app with the touchpad (thumb-up and thumb-down tracks, and standard controls like pause, skip, stop) or via voice commands (just two: select an existing station and create a new one).
If you own the Glass headset, you can install Pandora by following these steps:
- Go to google.com/myglass on your computer or device.
- Go to the Glassware page and find Pandora.
- On the detail page, turn ON Pandora and sign in.
- Give permission to access basic information.
- Pandora will be added automatically over the air.
The app was first birthed this past spring at Pandora’s semi-annual 72-hour hackathon. “It was such a hit that we decided to show it to Google,” Pandora said, and the two worked to get it out as official glassware.
