Finally, that 26 second song skip issue has been addressed in a new release of Pandora put out a few days ago. 5.0 OS users can now download version 1.1.2 to correct the issue.
"Good news - we just put up the new Pandora 1.1.2 update for 5.0 operating systems including Storm 9530 on 5.0 and the new Storm 9550. Other non-5.0 devices will have to wait a few days before it will be available while we finish testing, however most of the changes in 1.1.2 are to support the 5.0 OS."
Nice to see Pandora give some love to BlackBerry Storm2 owners right out the gates as well. If you are not running a Storm device, keep checking to see if the update is available if you're running OS 5.0. As of now on my 8900 running 5.0 OS 1.1.2 is showing as available.
Google pinned down 4 October 2023 to show off the new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, and while we're not expecting anything groundbreaking in the hardware, the real star in the Pixel line has always been the software anyway.
