Pandora has released an update to its Pandora Radio app for iOS that features a few welcome updates. The most noticeable update is a feature that pauses the currently playing song when you mute your device. This new feature means you’ll never miss a song when muting your phone because you forgot to pause Pandora. Other updates include improved playback buffering that Pandora says allows you to hear your music stutter-free and also improved URL support in the app. The full release notes are below:
