200 million strong!

We are very excited to announce today that Pandora has reached 200 million registered listeners!

When we launched http://www.pandora.com in 2005, we hoped to create a new way to discover and enjoy music that was completely personalized for each and every listener.  We envisioned a time when artists of all kinds would thrive on radio, connecting with fans who loved exactly their kind of music.

I have to admit, we had no idea what was in store! It has been, and continues to be, an extraordinary experience for all of us.

A hallmark of these years has been the steady stream of amazing stories from our listeners, whether they got engaged while listening to Pandora, mourned the passing of a loved one, or celebrated a special life milestone.

Have a Pandora story to share with us on this special occasion? We’d love to hear it.

  1. thanks to the new 40 hour free limit imposed on listeners ihave discovered new alternatives to pandora. I dont understand how listening to pandora at home over my wifi is considered mobile listening.

    • Love the time limit I almost never use it any more and usually turn it off before first add (remove the mobile cap ) . Worst idea u ever had …. u were an innovator making iPods useless. now u have created something as use full as a zune …….
      My whole work place has switched to I |heart radio

  2. Congratulations, really glad u invented it! Excellent idea! Especially 4 those people who r like me w/ estatic taste in music and their music choice depends on their mood

  3. thank you for making my long car trip enjoyable by continuous interesting Indian classical music .i enjoy without going sleep on wheel. also my wife can sleep peacefully while listening our favorite music on Pandora, it is blessing..keep up adding more songs .you are my favorite station, wish you more success.break all previous records all the time in future. god bless.

  4. I love Pandora! It helps me relax, have fun, and get homework done. Needless to say, that Pandora is very versatile and I love it, no matter what the mood! Thank
    you for you the wonderful music experience!!!

  5. I happen to be one of those few people who listen to my pandora station more than the alloted 40 hours a month on my wireless nook. I received an email that informs me I must pay monthly everytime I go over my time limit monthly. I do this about every two weeks. I know that I can listen unlimited free off of a computer, but I don’t have one so I use my nook to listen, which is not free. It seems to me that by paying monthly everytime you go over your time is a way of punishing your most loyal listeners. I wish this practice would stop becoming commonplace so I won’t be forced to switch to another way of enjoying my favorite music on my nook tablet.

  6. well let me thank you guys for that music that I enjoy everyday you guys are really doing a good word you really take me back all the way to Mexico I feel like I’m over there and my little town thank you again I hope you guys keep doing this I know lot of people get really happy like me because witnessing the the music the we like in for that I bet everybody is grateful no I jus me for that I thank you guys again keep it up the good work god bless everybody on your team………….

  7. Creating readio stations based on bands or songs is a brilliant idea. I love it. I have stations for my spinning workout, to play bejeweled, to shop online, or simply to relax sitting still with my eyes closed. I missed the last Panora listener get-together in Miami, FL, but I’d love to attend the next time. It’s cool to be in good company such as all Pandora listeners :-)

  8. For me it is hard to believe it has been that long! I started back in the beginning of 2008! Five years! In any case congrats!

  9. Thanks for all the great music and memories. You have done a wonderful thing for musicians and people that love to spend time in relaxation and meditation. I am grateful for your musical insight. Matthew in Colorado

  13. I love your pandora music bilingual cristian Chanel it gives me peace joy through out the days relaxes me through the nite

  14. I love the service – I have found many interesting artists while listening to Pandora that I would probably never discovered otherwise.

    I hate the service – it does not work in all countries of the world and sometimes gets the geo targeting wrong.

    How is that possible, that YouTube can show their content everywhere but Pandora cannot… I think you guys need to hire better lawyers. :)

  15. I loved pandora, beautiful music, is abosulutely, incredible music, bring me to younger days of life. I encourage everybody to listen to this wonderful oldies music.
    Thank you Pandora.

  16. me gusta mucho esta estacion sobre todo porque la escucho en el trabajo y tiene la musuca qiue megusta en espanol gracias

  17. Hey guys pandora is awesome but now youre charging for music every month and maybe if someone creates something similar as pandora for free we all will be switching. I honestly think that if you wouldnt charge this website and app will be the best ever in the whole world bc im a big fan!

  18. Well I love Laura Marano and Ross Lynch so as long as their playing somewhere on a statiokn and other places I wouldn’t miss it for the world!!!!!!!!!

  19. I enjoy listens to pandora: I love that I could listen to all the music I like& enjoy thanks to u I get a chance to here my reggea classic.:):) dancehall, reggeaton, & more. Pandora is the best.

  20. I love pandora, without it my day wouldn’t be fun. I listen to pandora everyday, everywhere and anytime I want to listen to music.
    Thank you Tim Westergren

  21. I hate the limit time , im a teenager and i usually use pandora to listen to music because its easier than to download them its to much hassle if there not the right songs . I go over my limit in less two weeks because it is a great to listen to music , so i listen to pandora every day and night before i go to sleep.

  22. Happy that we are able to customize our own music, taste, artist or genre. Everyone has different taste. I love Rock N Roll, Classical, Country Rock, Easy Listening, Jazz, Soul, Disco, and even Mexican Music. Pandora has every type of music for just about every taste I can possibly try. Thanks for the variety. I am not disappointed and I love the fact that we can also shuffle the music, that’s a definite plus.

    Love Pandora…I am not a fan of ITunes.
