Amazon is continuously adding features to its Echo SmartSpeaker device almost weekly. One of the recently added features is Pandora integration. Here’s how easy it is to set up your Pandora account with your Amazon echo.
Pandora for Amazon Echo
Select the hamburger menu in the upper-right corner and select Pandora from the list and select Link your account now. From there either create a Pandora account if you don’t have one, or select I have a Pandora account and log in with your email and password.
After that, your Pandora will be associated with the Echo app and your list of stations will appear. Just select whatever you want to play to the Echo. From the app you can control playback, volume, check out album art, switch between stations, as well as create new ones.
Another thing you can do later is say “Alexa Play Pandora” and she will grab the last station you listened to and start playing it.
If you’re on your computer and the Echo is within earshot, you can control Pandora via the Echo web interface.
Here is a look at the album now playing screen looks like via the web interface. I have to say, the Pandora app for Amazon Echo is nicely built.
Amazon announced this week that it’s selling the Amazon Echo SmartSpeaker for $179.99 in the U.S. and no invitation is required. A couple of us here have one, and are giving it high marks.
It’s continuously getting new features added, like this Pandora integration, and as more features come to the Echo, we’ll continue to cover it.
