While Pandora was noticeably absent from Apple's list of launch partners for CarPlay, that is all set to change according to the company's CFO.

In an interview with Fox Business Network, Pandora CFO Mike Herring revealed that the music streaming service will "definitely be in CarPlay." While Herring did not give a specific timeline as to when the streaming service will debut on CarPlay, he did share his insights on Pandora's relationship with Apple:

Pandora, which owes part of its success to the popularity of its iPhone app, has a "frenemy kind of relationship going on" with Apple, according to Herring. "We were part of what made it fun to have an iPhone," Herring added. While the two companies are "close partners," it is a "very interesting relationship."

Apple's purchase of Beats Music makes it a direct competitor to Pandora, with the hardware giant reportedly hard at work in launching a retooled version of the service later this year.
