We celebrated a big milestone for the company last week. Sometime late Thursday evening our 50 millionth listener registered for Pandora!
Amazing to us how this has all happened by word of mouth.

The growth of mobile has clearly helped a ton. An ever-increasing number of folks are coming to Pandora for the first time on a smartphone or a blue-ray player, or a connected home audio device. Lots more evening and weekend usage. The vision for Pandora anytime, anywhere is really starting to take shape…

Thanks again for listening, and for spreading the word! Next stop 100,000,000!

  1. I’m a new user of Pandora; it was recommended to me by my piano instructor. I’m impressed by how simple yet innovative the idea is: a free and legal way to sample new music and listen to great songs–full-length! At first I was disappointed by users’ inability to simply search and play a song, but then I realized that would rather negate the gratuity and legality of the service–it is, after all, a radio station. Besides, the uncertainty and surprise makes it all the more fun.
    Thank you for providing such a wonderful service!

  2. LOVE Pandora.com and listen to it ALL the time on the home computers (canceled my XMradio svc) but sadly can’t get Pandora on my Windows mobile phone (Sprint TouchPro2) only older Windows based phones have the compatibility. Since I have Sprint and they don’t have iPhones (yet), I can’t use my iPhone except in a wireless area. So, please can you work on the getting service to the non-iPhones. Thanks and keep up the great music selections!

  3. Not complete until include nokia 5800 xpressmusic phone.
    This phone is made for music lovers, and pandora does not supported. That just can’t be right.

  4. I just found pandora radio app for my droid eris yesterday and haven’t stopped using it! I’m going to recommend to everyone!! Thank you for a great application for music lovers.

  5. Love your product. Listen all day at my desk. Punched in Eva Cassidy and I now have a great selection of music all day. Today I created my Patsy Cline Station. Love it! Thanks so much.

  6. I think Pandora would make so much more listeners if they sold a radio that was a made for a car. I’m so tired of listening to music on the radio that is just bad music but if they made this then we would have our own style of music playing in the car. I’m not sure if they have this or not but if they don’t I think this would be a great idea.
    Just throwing my idea out there,

  7. Just wanted to know why if I pick The Doobie Brothers Station I am getting Motown Music in the selections. This does not make sense to me. Is there a way to keep different types of music separate?

  8. Love the app. for my HTC Incredible. Nice to have also on both computers and Samsung DVD player. Soon your in my car. Just got Pandora ONE.
