Pandora is rolling out an updated version of its Android smartphone app with a strong emphasis on personalization.

Personalized genre and artist suggestions will now appear at the top of your list of stations, and a new thumbs-up icon on the now-playing screen gives you fast access to song ratings – as well as acting as a visual reminder that you only get the most from the service if you get into the habit of rating songs.

There’s also a modest visual redesign. The update will roll out to phones in the coming weeks (it’s not yet available from Google play), with a tablet refresh to follow at a later date.

Pandora made it to Google Glass back in August, allowing voice control of stations and touchpad control of play/pause, favoriting and dismissing a track.
