Apple CarPlay Will Not Include Pandora Radio at Launch

If you’re thinking that CarPlay will finally let you enjoy Pandora radio in your car the way you’ve always dreamed, the company headquartered at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California, has a message for you: keep dreaming.

Well, technically they didn’t say anything, but that’s exactly the point. In announcing CarPlay yesterday, Apple confirmed a number of third-party apps that would be supported at launch, including Beats Music, iHeartRadio, Spotify, and Stitcher. One notably absent name on that list was Pandora, the music service Apple rivals with its own iTunes Radio product. Which is probably the reason why Pandora isn’s in CarPlay. But, according to a statement offered by Pandora to MacRumors, the service could one day be a part of CarPlay after all.

“At this time, Pandora is not integrated with Apple CarPlay. As a first mover in the auto space, we continue to broaden our relationships with OEMs while also exploring other opportunities to expand our presence in the car. Apple has been and continues to be a valued partner,” a company representative said. There’s also the possibility that Pandora itself didn’t want to bother its head with CarPlay integration as the music streaming service is already present on the dashboard of hundreds of vehicle models.
