It is also interesting to note that Pandora comes with six different modes which you can switch up anytime you want. There’s “My Station” which features everything you know and love, Crowd Faves mode which allows you to listen to the songs that are liked by other listeners. If you want to hear less-familiar songs from station artists, you can switch to Deep Cuts mode or better yet explore the Discovery mode and listen to more artists who don’t usually play on the station.
To be updated with the latest releases from the station artist, you can jump on to Newly Released Mode but if you want to listen to a particular artist, the Artist Only mode suits you well. Another interesting new feature of Pandora is the handsfree mode. Here, you can use your voice and command the Podcast virtual assistant of the things you want to do. You can ask Pandora to play your favorite music, play the music you like, skip a song, and many other related commands using nothing but your voice. Simply grant this app access to your microphone to embrace this amazing feature.
If you are a music lover or an avid Podcast listener, Pandora is definitely an app that you should not miss. However, much like similar apps like Spotify or Apple Music, the app comes with two subscription plans. There’s the free subscription but supported by overwhelming advertisements and a Fee-based subscription without the advertisements. The Pandora Premium allows you to listen to and create playlists of individual songs on demand. Regardless of the subscription plan you are using, this app will surely give you an excellent streaming and listening experience.
