Pandora Premium music streaming service now live
Pandora Premium
This on-demand streaming service will be available for $9.99 USD a month, combining Pandora's personalized radio experience with a set of personalized playlist features. A limited number of free trial invites rolls out this week while the option to upgrade will arrive to everyone in the coming weeks.

Pandora has been around since 2000 and is currently available only in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Back in 2016, it had almost 80 million active users. Now, Pandora gets a $9.99 USD/month paid plan simply known as Pandora Premium.

According to the official press release, "Pandora Premium combines the best of Pandora’s beloved personalized radio with the ability to search and play any track or album as well as a unique set of playlist features tailored to each person’s distinct preferences." Old users who thumbed up hundreds, maybe thousands of songs in the past will find their favorites available in a playlist called "My Thumbs Up."

Existing Pandora Plus subscribers receive six months of Premium without having to pay any additional charges. Pandora Premium invites roll out to select listeners this week, and all listeners should get access to it after a while as well. The list of supported platforms includes iOS, Android, Google Chromecast, Apple CarPlay, and more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
