When pandora removed support for the Apple Watch many users were outraged, finally the company has seen since and added back support plus they added offline playback for its paying members.

Pandora users must update to Version 1812.2 and be running watchOS 5, and be either a Pandora Plus or Pandora Premium user. The decision to drop the first generation watch makes sense as Apple made it easier for third party users in watchOS 5 to make apps with offline playback.

Pandora says “You asked, and we listened! By popular demand, we bring you a brand new, built-from-theground-up app that’s seamlessly integrated into the Apple Watch experience.”

Users can now:

– Access remote playback controls.

– Give your favorites a Thumbs Up directly from the Now Playing screen.

– Listen without an internet connection! Pandora Plus & Premium subscribers get access to offline content – no phone required.

– To get started, make sure you have watchOS 5 installed before updating Pandora.
