If you listen to Pandora, you probably don’t like listening to ads. Some would go so far as to say that it ruins the experience. Well, if ads really bug you, the music streamer is going to offer a day pass for 99 cents that will give you a day’s worth of music that is uninterrupted by commercial messages.
The information was spotted on a slide that was shown to investors by the company’s Chief Product Officer, Chris Phillips, on Thursday during Pandora’s investor day.
We don’t know when it will happen, but Phillips mentioned that the ad-free Pandora would be perfect for a summer BBQ so that guests aren’t bothered by the ads. So we can figure on a summer date. There is also discussion as to whether the pass should last for one day or for three days. The 99 cents that Pandora is planning on charging for the pass might be different as the company tests different pricing tiers. We will have to wait and see since they are ironing out the details.
Pandora is currently a free download for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices. If you sign up for free you’ll have to listen to ads that play after several songs. For $4.99 a month, you can sign up for Pandora One, which offers ad-free streaming along with more “skips.” This new idea would be another option.
