Bad update! After updating app from previous version, Pandora crashes frequently, requiring a TV restart. Loses device activation frequently. Previous version was very stable. Might be time to explore other radio content providers.
As per another review, when installed on a new Sony 4K TV, it will not output audio to the Amp, only internal speakers. This makes it pretty useless.
The app intermittently wires playing on my Shield TV, and it does not play nice with the Shield's option to keep it from sleeping when the music is playing. The two factors render the app worthless on the new Shield TV. It's a Shane too, because my wife and I really like the app on the Nexus Player on our other TV.
The Pandora App will not send audio from New Sony 4KTV to a connected receiver. The Pandora app will only output sound to the TV and Sony is unable to help because, "Pandora is a third party app." Useless until sound to receive issue is fixed.
Stuck on "Loading, Please wait" screen. Unable to play anything. (Nvidia Shield TV | Android Marshmallow)
Not linked to search and some login issues Pandora still fails to understand they should use Google login to make it easy. Their on screen keyboard has a shift key, but no shortcuts for uppercase from the gamepad thus you must navigate to the key to make the text uppercase. Second there is the synonymous use of social, but all they show is Facebook as an option. Social is not exclusive to Facebook and I would love to see my Google+ friends on the app. The limited thought on how Pandora works boggles my mind. There is no thought about multiple users visiting and how you could make custom stations across those in the room via bluetooth detection for custom stations. There is only the main account attached and if anyone else wants to load their Pandora account you have to log out. The TV is a social center in homes and at least a peripheral that could extend into the social experience. This app is just a clone from any other device to the large screen. Though the largest issue is the difficulty of logging in and switching accounts. Other apps are using codes to associate instead of asking for password and username entry. Also cant say play "artist name" and get a suggested channel from Android TV search. :(
Pandora Plus is now available for Pandora on Android TV. Enjoy the stations you love with unlimited skips, replays and no ads.
