Pandora on Google TVGoogle will this week unleash a major update for Google TV, including support for third-party apps from the Android Market. That includes 13 music apps, as Eliot Van Buskirk writes at Evolver.fm ("but we suspect that number will soon balloon as more developers realize they can tweak Android apps and build web apps in order to appear on Google TVs").

Slacker, TuneIn Radio, Rhapsody and Napster will be available on Google's TV platform, as will other apps like Vevo and Baeble Music. Pandora will be present too, though it was already available.

"We can’t wait to try it out," writes Van Buskirk. "Television will be an excellent platform for music and other apps," writes Van Buskirk. We can't help but agree (more here). Find Evolver.fm's original article here.
