Pandora updates its iOS and Android apps with personalized station recommendations
Pandora, one of the most popular music streaming services, rolled out a new update for its iOS and Android apps. Thanks to a newly-implemented feature, Pandora now provides users with up to six suggested artists' stations to add to their own playlists.

The recommended stations will appear at the bottom of the screen whenever you create a new station. They will pop up at the bottom of the stations list, too. The recommended stations are based on the current listening preferences of each user, which are determined by all the "likes" and "dislikes" for the songs in the station list. When users engage with filtering their own music preferences, Pandora adapts to their musical tastes and optimizes the future artist station recommendations.


The update is still rolling out, so you might not get it right away.

I haven't updated the app, but I've already started to notice the suggestions at the bottom. So I guess I don't need to?

Yes, you don't need to do it yourself. The app updates itself automatically.

But I have Auto-update disabled for all my apps so I know it didn't update and the current version in the Play Store is 5.1.1 and I currently have 5.1.
