Pandora, the online music streaming service, will cease operating after Monday. Subscriptions will be automatically cancelled and prorated refunds given for subscriptions that end after July 31.
With over a million users in Australia, this seems like a bad move. One can only assume their user base has been dwindling since the launch of Apple Music.
You may be able to get around the shutdown by using a proxy or VPN but that remains to be seen, and you’d likely need to create a new account.
I tried Pandora once, and hated it. As it’s a radio service, it wouldn’t actually let you play the songs you would select, only (somewhat) similar tracks. I tried to like it, but being unable to listen to the songs I actually wanted to put me off the service.
The Spotify monopoly continues…
