Pandora seems to be the go-to streaming radio service for those who don’t use Spotify or Apple Music. Bringing Pandora to Switch could let players jam out to their favorite stations while they hunt for Korok seeds in Legend of Zelda or battle Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament.
Whatever music apps end up coming to the Switch, hopefully Nintendo will give us the option to listen to them while playing games.
Whether or not Nintendo will allow more apps onto its platform remains to be seen, but Apple was hesitant about third-party apps when it launched the iPhone, and now it’s one of the best things they ever did. Nintendo might want to take a leaf out of App Store playbook and open up their hardware to more developers.
