Pandora is coming after Spotify and Apple Music and it’s coming soon
If you thought the music streaming market was getting a bit crowded, just wait until online radio pioneer Pandora joins the fray.
The firm is expected to launch its dedicated on-demand subscription streaming service next month.
Until now Pandora has offered personalised radio services based on the user’s choice of artist or genre, but an on-demand offering is nearing according to the Wall Street Journal.
Like Apple Music and Spotify, the tariff is expected to be $10 a month, while the ad-free $5 a month personalized radio tier will remain and will be boosted with increased skips and the ability to save playlists offline.

Do you think Pandora can put a dent into Spotify’s market share? Can it be a rival to the rapidly rising Apple Music platform?
