  • (2019-10-21) Chris Putnam: Very useful. Can you change the default action to allow global shortcuts? This would allow playing/pausing without needing to have chrome focused: https://developer.chrome.com/apps/commands#scope
  • (2019-06-20) humberto pacheco: well i hope it works on me cause i want to hear pandora in my pc
  • (2018-08-06) Mike de Miranda: So convenient, I love it!
  • (2018-05-10) BobRoss4lyfe: Fantastic extension. If you listen to Pandora, you need this extension. Lists the song, artist, and album by hovering over the tab. Pause, play works like a charm. Ever Pandora listeners dream plugin.
  • (2018-02-07) Jacob: Amazing extension. I even requested a new feature for it, and within days the developer added it.
  • (2017-09-27) Jon Roberts: Simple, intuitive, and worked perfectly! I'm running Windows 7 with Chrome Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit).
  • (2017-07-08) This is a cool little app. I use the button for pausing or fast forwarding or for starting Pandora. I'm impressed, considering the problems other devs are having when Pandora updates.
  • (2017-05-19) Dhruv Agarwal: Really great tool! BUG: Shows 2 notifications on song change: One, the new song (which is correct) Two, the new song appended with the old song (needs to be looked into, maybe) Hope this helps :) Also, love the hover-to-see-song-details feature! Feature Request: Would be great if I was able to up-vote, down-vote, play/pause by right clicking on the extension icon and selecting it from the menu.
  • (2017-05-12) Charise Caldwell: Works great! Just what Pandora needed.
  • (2017-03-08) Matt Rutkowski: Absolutely love this. Set a keyboard shortcut to play/pause. Worked great! Needs an update with the huge update Pandora just pushed out. Can't wait for this update too!
  • (2017-02-17) Nathaniel Lee: Doesn't work.
  • (2017-02-15) Krista W Powers: Broken. Doesn't work with Chrome 56.0.2924.87.
  • (2016-12-02) William Schueddig: Working again! Very convenient!
  • (2016-05-04) Git Hub: Exactly what I was looking for. Excellent, excellent extension!
  • (2015-12-29) Dennis Parks: for someone who always has multiple tabs open this is perfect. Thanks
  • (2015-12-25) Roberto Meneses: Such a huge time saver. Best Pandora extension i've used.
  • (2015-10-09) Connor Kirby: useful, but make it so we can like the video by clicking 3 times, so your tracks are better.
  • (2015-09-27) nicole estrada: Best extension ever!
  • (2015-08-16) Eugene Rosenfeld: Fantastic! Such a huge time saver. I don't have to fiddle with the tab switching when I have to pause Pandora quickly to take a phone call. Thanks so much!
  • (2014-10-13) ・かもち: パンドラradioの再生と一時停止をタブを移動せずボタンから操作できます。便利
  • (2014-10-06) Yirong Zhang: Works perfectly. exactly what i was looking for. The panel showing song change is really cool! The youtube pause can be still improved. Every time i pause on youtube, even if pandora was not played beforehand but opened in a tab, it will still resume playing.
  • (2014-09-23) Christie Diaz: Super useful, just what I was looking for!
  • (2014-06-10) Dominic Giuffre: What a useful extension! Suggestion for future release, create an "autopause" feature that pauses pandora automatically whenever a video is played, and resumes when it stops! You could even build in a cool soft volume step down/up so the music fades out, video plays, then music fades back in to prevent harsh transitions. Thank you!
  • (2014-05-13) Michael Teresi: Simple, looks great, never fails.
  • (2014-04-06) Victor Kent: omg this is exactly what I needed for study, works perfectly!

Latest issues

  • (2018-10-11, v:1.4.0) Tom Nielsen: Pandora removed Pause?
    I can no longer pause Pandora through the webpage, so I downloaded this extension, which doesn't seem to work anymore either. Am I crazy or is anybody else having this issue too?
  • (2018-04-28, v:1.4.0) alien ashtray: Disable pause for embedded content
    Specifically • <video class="video media" • <div id="player" • <div class="html5-video-player • <div class="media-container" Content contained within these tags will pause other media. Is it possible to add an option to disable pauses for embedded content in general?
  • (2018-03-29, v:1.4.0) Mike Denny: Quits
    Works great until certain ads come up. Then it stops playing and the only way to get it started again is to reload the page. I can send screenshots. Thank you.
  • (2018-01-29, v:1.3.1) Product Feature Request
    Could you please provide an option to disable double-clicking the button causing my song to be skipped?
  • (2017-03-13, v:1.3.0) Kevin Bovee: Pandora update
    Pandora said it was updated today and now the button doesn't work. Is that something you're working on?
  • (2017-02-15, v:1.2.2) Krista W Powers: Broken
    Doesn't work with Chrome 56.0.2924.87
  • (2017-02-10, v:1.2.2) Stephanie Morgan: New version broke the extension
    New version of Pandora released and the extension no longer works for me. Please fix - I love this little tool!
  • (2016-10-30, v:1.2.1) David Schindler: Only Creates New Tab Now
    There have been no updates to this extension since November 2015. If you have this problem and you don't see a more recent update, my suggestion would be to just remove it from Chrome.
