Pandora is getting even more personal. The streaming music service has just launched Thumbprint Radio. As suggested by the name, the unique station is inspired by each listener’s previous thumbs up choices.
Your specific station can be accessed directly through the iOS app or on the Web here. Just to note, you’ll need to have three stations with at least four thumbs on each to access Thumbprint Radio.
The station will continue to evolve and change as you continue to give a thumbs up to other songs across the service.
The Pandora app is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now for free on the App Store.
While the app is free, you can subscribe to Pandora One for $4.99 per month. That will give users an ad-free listening experience while also allowing more skips over songs.
Just last week, Pandora arrived on the big screen with an app optimized for the Apple TV. Music fans can easily view different stations and search for specific artists, genres, or songs.
In November, Pandora also took a big step toward become even more entrenched in the industry. The company purchased “key assets” of Rdio. As part of the $75 million deal, Rdio sought bankruptcy protection and is winding down its streaming service.
When announcing the deal, Pandora promised an “expanded” listening experience by late 2016. That presumably means a more traditional streaming service compared to the radio station approach currently offered.
