Waze App for iOS Gains Pandora Music Streaming Support

Google-owned mapping app Waze has been updated with support for Pandora music streaming, as revealed in a blog post on the Pandora website.


The update means Pandora listeners on both iOS and Android can stream songs directly from within the Waze app using its embedded audio player, allowing drivers to navigate and listen to their music without leaving the app.

The integration also works both ways, so once users connect Pandora and Waze on their device, the next Waze navigational direction also appears within the official Pandora app.

To connect the two apps, simply click the music icon on the top right corner of the Waze app interface, select the Pandora icon, and start streaming your music.

Waze can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I don't quite get the value of this integration, but perhaps it'll help someone.

Waze is pretty wonderful, but I stopped using it. My location shouldn't be fed into the Google datacomplex.

Maybe Waze should fix the slow turns and improve there bad CarPlay before adding stuff people don’t really need

Because there are still people who prefer Pandora.

But can’t you use Pandora, or any other music app, in the background? I’m failing to see the point.

While I find Waze to be the best overall at rerouting on traffic jam, I wish it would address its biggest problems.

* Battery hog. It uses far more battery than other navigation apps (Google Maps, Apple Maps). I read from somewhere that it, along with Facebook, are the worst non-game apps at energy use.
* UI. It's not just that it's ugly, it's difficult to do very simple things.
* Privacy concerns. Even after I reached the destination, the app loves to remain running in the background, monitoring my location.

As Google Maps has Apple Music I would have hoped Waze would also add Apple Music. That to me would be a better music streaming option.

Waze has already had Spotify integration for a while, but I am surprised to see them adding Pandora as well. I thought that the audio streaming market by now was pretty much a two-player arena, shared between Apple Music and Spotify.
