Chrome: Pandora is a great way to get through the workday, but finding its tab to pause or skip songs is a pain. SoundControl cures this ill by putting adding a handy mini player to Chrome that you can access from anywhere.
Just tap on the extension’s icon to open up a pinned Pandora tab. Once music is playing, you can pause or restart it at any time by just clicking the extension’s icon. Double tapping the icon brings up a mini player where you can adjust volume, view album art, assign thumbs up or thumbs down, and skip to the next song. If you sign in with your Pandora account, you can also view and switch between your custom stations.
SoundControl is pretty similar to previously-mentioned Anesidora, but since it still requires a Pandora tab to be open, it’s not as likely to get shut down and booted to the land of unofficial Chrome extensions. It also offers a few great features that Anesidora can’t match. For example, pausing and playing a song with SoundControl doesn’t require opening up the entire mini player, and the extension includes a live updating playhead that runs along the bottom of the app icon. It’s a kind of hard to see, but it’s a good indicator of how close you are to the end of the song without having to click anything.
If you want to give SoundControl a try, it’s available for free from the Chrome Web Store.
