Desktop: Remote Stream Control

Hello, 

Does Panodra have a way to control the desktop app remotely. I currently do this using Spotify by choosing what device I would like to stream from. For example I tell my iPhone app to stream through my iMac. I am searching for this because I use my desktop to feed an app called airfoil. Using my iPhone I can change the songs or the feed using my phone anywhere in the house. Can Pandora do the same ?

Hi there, @fab2003 @MOHLovesAlaska. 👋

Unfortunately, controlling the desktop app remotely is not a current feature of Pandora. However, if you'd like to see this implemented with our app, feel free to create a feature request here. I'm sure other listeners would be interested in this option as well. You can also upvote existing ideas by leaving comments and clicking on the 💙icon next to the title of the feature suggestion to express your interest in that idea.

Thanks so much for being a part of the Pandora Community! :pandora:

Previous Mac Apps that supported Pandora (Hermes) allowed for remote control thru Airfoil - the iPhone could show the track, song, skip fwd/back, pause - but Pandora actively prevents users from having this convenience anymore - what a shame - they remove features instead of just allowing others to provide the features we want.
