Pandora Premium On-Demand Streaming Music Service Arrives This Week
According to Pandora, “When we set out to build a premium music experience-- one that would set the new standard for what a music service could be-- we knew it had to be truly personal, be thoughtfully designed and take the work out of managing your world of music.”
Pandora Premium in particular makes it easier to create a new playlist or find a new song. Users can start a playlist with a few songs and click “Add Similar Songs” to have Pandora finish it off. The service also now includes album recommendations in the browse feature. If a user listens to a specific genre, Pandora will provide a list of the latest releases in those genres, not just the most popular content. Pandora Premium has filtered out karaoke tracks and knock-off covers as well in order to make searching easier. These results will reportedly become more accurate and “smarter” over time.
Pandora Premium plans to include in the future “Auto-Play”, a feature that would pick up right where a song ended. The company also intends to make Pandora Premium available on more devices. The service will cost $9.99 USD a month and you can sign-up for the Pandora Premium invite here.
