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.

Now You Can Listen to Pandora on Windows Phone 8

For the last six months or so we’ve been working hard to bring Pandora to the Windows Phone 8 audience. Happy to announce the day has finally come.

While of course Pandora on Windows Phone 8 features the same listening experience you’ve come to expect from us, we really wanted to embrace the unique features of the Windows Phone 8 platform. For example, you can pin your favorite stations directly to the Start screen. Even cooler, the tiles are live and show you what’s currently playing without having to actually launch the app. If you have kids, we’ve also integrated into what Microsoft calls “Kid’s Corner” – just launch Pandora from that starting point and we’ll make sure that no explicit content plays during that session.

A note to our listeners

This week we will begin communicating directly with a small number of our listeners as we introduce a 40-hour-per-month limit on free mobile listening.

Most of you reading this will never hit the limit. In fact, it will affect less than 4% of our total monthly active listeners. For perspective, the average listener spends approximately 20 hours listening to Pandora across all devices in any given month.

Pandora Truly Everywhere at CES 2013

Every year, during the annual International CES in Las Vegas, we feel a certain sense of humbled achievement to share the showroom floor with so many of our consumer electronics and automotive partners. As one of the most widely used apps in the U.S., we are pleased to be able to partner with so many great companies to give you easy access to personalized radio on virtually all major automobiles and connected devices.

This year we feel doubly excited to be here with our growing number of automotive partners since the car is still the primary radio listening location for most adults. Thanks to our numerous auto integrations, Pandora is meeting our listeners’ mobile lifestyle by bringing the service directly into the in-dash entertainment system of nearly every major car manufacturer. For this reason, we were thrilled to announce Chrysler Group as our 20th auto brand partner earlier this week. Currently, there are 85 available vehicle models and 175 aftermarket devices with Pandora integration that are available for purchase.
