Let’s be honest with ourselves here for a minute — using and app that was originally designed for the smaller screen of a smartphone on a tablet works, but it’s not a fun experience.

You know this. I know this. Pandora knows this. That’s why Pandora has released Pandora 5.0 in the Google Play Store built “specifically with the tablet experience in mind.”

That’s right, Pandora fans, you can now take advantage of a better customized tablet experience of your favorite music streaming service directly on your Android tablet of choice. Here’s a list of some features Pandora is touting:

  • Enhanced Listening Experience & Personalization – App interface is optimized for larger screens and features upgraded core Pandora functionality, such as adding variety to a station and viewing station details, in addition to the ability to easily shuffle, rename and delete stations.
  • Deeper Music Discovery & Exploration –Explore more about the artist and album that is currently playing with enriched artist pages that include similar artists and genome traits of the current track playing, plus lyrics, artist biographies and album discographies.
  • Your Personal Profile & Music Feed – Your detailed timeline Capture your music preferences on this detailed timeline, such as stations created, bookmarked tracks and thumb history and choose to make your profile either public or private. The Music Feed offers a centralized place to view music activity, making it easy to explore what friends and other listeners with similar musical tastes are discovering and enjoying on Pandora.
  • The Ability to Connect & Share Music with Friends – Social sharing features are now easier than ever to navigate on Android tablets with the updated user interface. Listeners can publish their music activity to Facebook with the Pandora Timeline app, as well as manually share links to favorite stations with followers on Twitter.
