Pandora for Android updated with sleep timer and support for NissanConnect controls

Hot on the heels of an iOS update rolling out earlier today, Pandora for Android has just received an update with several new features. First off, the app now supports touch screen and steering controls in select Nissan vehicles that offer the NissanConnect app.

Also in this version is a new Sleep Timer feature. This allows you set a timer for either 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or 60 minutes and have Pandora shut off after that amount of time.

  • Fall asleep to the sounds of your favorite stations with our new Sleep Timer feature.
  • Find the Sleep Timer in your options drawer in the top right screen corner and select from 15, 30, or 60 minutes.
  • Drift off knowing we’ll play just the right amount of music for you.
  • Easily control your music using Nissan’s touch screen or steering wheel controls in select Nissan vehicles that now support Pandora through the NissanConnect App.
  • For more information please visit NissanUSA.com/connect.

The update is available now on the Play Store.

Uh-oh, Google better step on the pedal: Automaker Nissan recently unveiled a self-driving car at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies tradeshow in Tokyo.

The concept car, dubbed “NSC-2015, can park or drive up to a passenger when commanded by a smartphone. In the Nissan press video above, a demonstration at CEATEC 2012 shows the modified Nissan Leaf responding to an Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S III.

Nissan specifically said the car could search for an empty space and park itself after a driver has left the vehicle and then the driver could later summon the car with just a simple smartphone tap.
