New Pandora Android app rolling out with 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.

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.
