New Pandora app lets you stream music to Apple Watch & AirPods without iPhone
Pandora now allows listeners to stream music and podcasts on their Apple Watch — without needing an iPhone.
Pandora's official update reads, "Leave the phone at home and bring all of your listening with you thanks to our updated Apple Watch app. Now you can stream your favorite music and podcasts, straight from your wrist - no phone required."
Other services, like Apple Music, need users to pre-load music on an Apple Watch for a run or other exercise, when the iPhone isn't in range. The feature requires the watch in question to be running watchOS 6 or greater.
