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. congratulations!
    I really do thank you for your invention, I am a big fan of gangster rap music. Most stations don’t play that kind of music, but you do now that’s Gangsta!!!!!! Keep up the good work.thx

  2. I love listening to pandora drive to work or just crusing brings back good memories i set to music i enjoy and sit back

  3. Congratulations! I discovered Pandora when a manager at work played the station & I heard “somewhere over the rainbow” sung by IZ may you grow in listeners and joy, thank you!

  4. I love Pandora, it is very inspirational to me in my life . It help me get through anything; traveling, exercising or just walking. Thank you Mr. Tim

  5. I love pandora & wouldn’t mind paying the subscription price, but I have six kids & if I pay for it they want it also that’s to much money . You should have a general subscription that one fee covers a household or as many devices. Thanks but I have to start looking elsewhere

  6. I just want to say thank you for making Pandora. I get to listen to all sorts of music. I love it. I wish i could get it in my car. I would pay for a membership then. I have satellite in my car and I don’t like it. I would rather have Pandora. Any way you can help me with that.

  7. I crave, fiend, n starve for pandora… I withdraw witbout it…….i basically cant live without it,……cuz my 22yr. Old has it on til he goes to work….nnnnnn then iiiiiii have it on while i clean after he leaves….addicted, just plain addicted! If i had to give up all my vises n keep only one it would pandora.

  8. There are some days where i find myself hearing a certain song in my brain playing over and over again in the same repeated chorus, and i HAVE to put Pandora on to find it or block it out.. Seriously, Pandora keeps me from going crazy!! I love the different styles, and the like or dislike options, the fact that i can find a band immediately, and not have to dig trough my thousands of missing CDs..

    You guys rock my world!! Thank you for being here..

    • Thanks to pandora I can listen to all the music you can;t find in stores anymore. The good thing about this stations is that you can listen to anything that you want to . I love this station

  9. I like the fact that i don’t have to take up space w my music, use Pandora instead. Am 50 & can find “my generation’s” music to work out to, with lots of variety. Great, innovative invention! Thank you.

  10. Well first I would like to say that the only reason you have 1 out of 3 smartphones tuning in a month…. Is because the person next to us has Pandora turned on already. No need to have 2 phones running. d^_^b

    Also you guys should throw a huge live event with artists from lots of genres to perform. People can come to a HUGE music festival! Then everyone can tune into the “Pandora Live Music Festival” station. ONLY ON PANDORA! Anyway if you do do this. I would love a ticket. Congratulations to your success! Thank you for spreading your amazing idea, for us to experience.

  11. I love Pandora (listening to it right now) it gives me all the songs that I love and new ones that I fall in love with!! Keep up the good work, you’ll continue to grow <3

  12. Pandora has been an ongoing pleasure for my wife and me. We love music like that of John Barry or Ennio Moricone. Dinner hour has risen to another level of special pleasure!

  13. I discovered my love for Portuguese Fado music on Pandora!
    I started a Ali Farka Toure channel as I loved the CD Talking Timbuktu. On my Ali channel, I heard Cesaria Evora for the first time. Then I created a Cesaria Evora channel and on this channel I first heard Amalia Rodriguez, Linda Leonardo, Mariza, Madredeus, Vinicius Cantuaria, omg! the list goes on and on! I never knew about this music before Pandora! I love Pandora and all kinds of music. My tastes are very eclectic and Pandora suits my needs so perfectly! I love Pandora.
    Thank you Tim! I am so grateful!

  14. I’m a retired old person, and for years Pandora has eased my loss of several loved ones by listening to their favorite songs or mine on your radio. You have been with me pretty much in my daily life, through the bad and the good. Hoping to be listening to you for a good many years more. THANK YOU!!

  15. I think it would be FANTASTIC if Pandora expanded their app to gaming consoles. Like PS3 and Xbox 360. I am an avid gamer and would absolutely love it if the two mixed.

  16. Yea so glad..but it sucks that I had to pay jus to listen to it now ..now u can
