Music lovers have another reason to rejoice. Pandora has launched its new Premium Family Plan, which costs just $14.99 per month and can support up to six accounts. Each account can keep their own music stations and users have full access to Pandora Premium features, including search and play, downloading capabilities for offline listening, ad-free play, and unlimited skips and replays. If you are unsure whether this plan is right for you, Pandora is offering a free 60-day trial.
This latest update is part of an ongoing effort to stay relevant within the streaming business, with Spotify and Apple Music taking the lead. The new plan is very similar to the Spotify family plan and the Apple Music family plan, both of which also cost $14.99 per month and can support six accounts, with a personal account for each family member.
Users who already have the $10 Premium plan with Pandora can go into their settings at any point and hit “Switch Plans” to upgrade. Invitations to family members can be sent out from the app. However, members who subscribed through iTunes, Amazon, Roku, or Google Play will have to cancel their subscriptions and sign up again.
