Pandora Redesigns Platform; Lifts 40 Hour Per Month Cap for Free Accounts

Pandora has developed a redesigned edition of its platform.

In a blog post, the company said the new Pandora was designed to make Internet radio much more enjoyable, social and easy to use. The company said the service was now built around the HTML 5 format, making it more interactive and easy to use.

The revamped internet radio service has undergone massive redesign, engineering and beta testing in the last year the company said, and is clearly satisfied with the final product.

The company also announced that it had eliminated the 40 hour per month cap for free users. The website is available in two versions: paid and free. Pandora abolished the listening cap, to mark its new avatar.

Paid users have to spend up $36 per year for unlimited access to the much loved internet radio service.

“For the last two months we've been gradually rolling a preview of the new site out to our listeners, taking their feedback, fixing bugs and making improvements here and there. With all those little fixes and refinements in place, today we're rolling out the new site for everyone,” the company said.
