Pandora is a music and podcast discovery service that boasts of more than 70 million users. Launched in the year 2000, Pandora is one of the oldest names in the music streaming category. Pandora was founded by Jon Kraft and Tim Westergren in a small apartment in San Francisco. Tim and Jon were attempting to revolutionize the music industry by infusing technology. They assembled musicians and engineers to create a recommender system, which is popularly known as the Music Genome Project (MGP). The MGP was designed to capture music at a fundamental level via 450 attributes used to describe a song. Pandora, which was then known as Savage Beast Technologies, spent 4 years to license the technology to AOL and big players in the music industry. Pandora went on to launch its discovery service on the web in 2005. Pandora’s original concept is still with it, a music discovery tool. It has a user-friendly interface and offers the ability to organize playlists and stations. You can easily filter songs, albums, artists and podcasts by keyword or popularity. The premium versions allow you to enjoy unlimited skips, make and share playlists, and unlimited downloads. The biggest advantage is the higher quality audio. Paid users further enjoy personalized radio with ad-free music.
