Control4 adds full support for Pandora music streaming service

Snap One has revealed that the Control4 home control system now supports full integration with the Pandora music streaming service, giving users full access to Pandora’s Premium, Plus and Free accounts through the Control4 interface.

After almost a decade of partnership, the Pandora integration for Control4 systems has been reimagined to now provide users with a premium music streaming experience, compared to some other services that offer limited control integration capabilities.

Integrating a fully-functioning Pandora interface into the Control4 app gives integrators an entirely new experience offering for their clients, providing them with more access to their music, greater control and a simpler user interface.

“One of the benefits of being a Control4 user is that Snap One is constantly developing new streaming service integrations and capabilities that add value to existing systems,” said Andy Spalla, senior product manager, Streaming Audio at Snap One. “Snap One partners now have a powerful reason to reconnect with existing clients, as well as a new selling point for future projects, with this exciting new experience.”

Like Control4’s many other audio integrations, Pandora is supported by Ryff, the native streaming audio platform within the Control4 ecosystem. The Ryff audio platform provides high audio quality and network based audio synchronisation to prevent echoes and lag across multiple simultaneous zones, including those connected wirelessly.

Control4 integrators and end-users have enjoyed this technology for over 17 years, and after nearly two decades of development, innovation and investment, Snap One has branded it Ryff.

The integration between Control4 and Pandora was developed in response to user and partner requests, with specific focus on easier navigation and ability to search and browse Pandora’s full library of on-demand content. Users can also now access all their favourite stations and playlists, as well as select individual tracks or albums, as their level of Pandora subscription allows.
