We’ve been hard at work on the new version of Pandora.com since my last update here — processing your feedback, fixing bugs and generally improving the entire experience.

We’d all like to give a big “thank you” to those of you who have experimented with the new site and taken time to share your thoughts with us. We’re dedicated to making the new site faster, easier, and more social than any version of Pandora that has come before and your feedback is helping to us turn that vision into reality.

Right now, every Pandora One subscriber has the option to use the redesigned web version of Pandora. All you need to do is visit us at http://www.pandora.com, login to your Pandora One account, and look for the invitation to use the new site across the top of the page. Don’t forget to send us your feedback to support@pandora.com. We’d love to hear what you think.

We’ll start rolling out the new site to our ad-supported listeners during the next few weeks. While we’re delighted with the look of the new site, we are even more excited about the new opportunities for listener interaction, music discovery, and easier navigation. As millions more listeners are poised to try out the new Pandora.com soon, we’re looking forward to hearing what you have to say and incorporating your feedback as well.

Thanks for listening,

Tom Conrad
CTO and EVP of Product

    Why is it that when I choose to listen to Caribbean music (Soca and Reggae), the system keeps trying to play Hispanic music, no matter how many times I thumb down Hispanic music? This needs to be fixed so that Caribbean music lovers can enjoy their music without Hispanic music intruding. I just cannot tell my friends about Pandora because of this problem.

    Just like others, I hate that bookmarking has been taken out. The problem with liking stuff is that it modifies the station. For example, on my "Killers" radio, I liked a Beatles song that was played and a Coldplay song, and then all the sudden, my "Killers" radio is attacked by a bunch of Beatles songs (including all of their solo career stuff) with Coldplay songs stuffed in between. I bookmark stuff so I can check it out later and research more about the band. I like it because I want it to actually be played more on the current station. Sometimes I am unsure if what I bookmark is what I want to be playing on the station. In summary: I will use the old Pandora so I can bookmark my tracks. It was a HUGE oversight to remove this feature.

    still waiting for the upgrade..... sort of makes you wish everyone would follow the Apple model - put it out there, and then talk about it.

    I definitely like the new layout, but what happened to the keyboard shortcuts...? The only one that works is the spacebar. I want to be able to click "+" to like a song and so on. Please get that fixed. Thank You.

    Didn't feel like reading 95+ comments, but what happened to bookmarking a song in the new version of pandora?!

    Just going to echo everyone else and say I want bookmarking back. It is not the same as liking to me. I used bookmarking to find what songs I wanted to buy.
