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.

    Then why are you wanting to charge those of us who keep it playing in our offices??? I now listen more to IHeart. I like Pandora but I do not wish to pay a fee..

      I am very disappointed with your decision to limit free listening time. Pandora got me through my hectic workdays. Now I have to rely on I heart radio. :-(.

    Mr. Tim...now is the time to see about launching that satellite ...or...purchasing a piece. I want Pandora everywhere without eating up my data plan. :)..OH, and I'd still like a button that says, "I never want to hear from this artist again"... ;-)...Thanks Pandora for cutting out the static...(if I don't like it...it MUST be static)..

    I simply love, love and have loved you guys since the beginning. You have introduced me to so many genres of music, artists I would have never known had you not turned me on to them. Simply put you've blossomed up my closed up music memory, as I myself have a Bachelors Degree in Music Composition and had closed that memory until you helped to open me up again, even to regard my own talents which I had forgotten. Thank you you genius Tim for being the founder of such a fine idea and waking me up. Plus I got this really cool T shirt in the mail! Thank you!

    Way better than Sirius radio. I listen to Pandora through my Bluetooth connection in my car. I wonder why anyone would pay the much higher Sirius rates for music that isn't personalized.

    Dear Pandora, thanks to you I was able to identify the artists I used to listen to in a now defunct radio station. I searched for that music far and wide but with you and your excellent repertoire, the song came on in a radio station for a different artist. Needless to say I was overwhelmed with you. So Thank You, Pandora! Here's to many more years honoring music and their creators.

    There is no better internet music provider anywhere! I have Pandora on my phone, in my car, and on streaming sevices (BlueRay players/TV's) My entire family has Pandora streaming music over one device or another. The collective opinion is umanimous......AN EXCELLENT SERVICE! Keep up the good work.

    Thanks to you guys, I've been able to discover more of my favorite artists, new artists entirely, and even given entire new genres a try and refine my taste within those genres. I still love to use Pandora as my personal DJ and I'm still finding new songs and artists on the same stations after two years. Can't explain how, you guys just got it right.
