    Great article but it needs to be updated. This app is now called PRadio not Pandora Windows and there a lot of cool features.

    To download the app from the windows store please visit http://apps.microsoft.com/webpdp/en-US/app/pradio… in Internet Explorer.

  2. Pandora seems to not be listed in the Windows 8.1 app store, or at least is suffering terribly from being able to pop up from search key words. I type in “Pandora” and get 820 hits. I try browsing through those hundreds of hits and can’t find it. I try “Pandora Windows” and get 14 search result hits, and none of them are from Pandora Media. Pandora, you need to fix! I’m willing to pay, willing to download the app, but can’t find the app. Fail.

  3. This article should be updated or removed. I have a Surface Pro 3 and I am frustrated that there is no true Pandora app. I have searched thoroughly and there is no Pandora Windows or PRadio. The link that Asish provided is dead.
