What is the difference between Spotify and Pandora?


Can you pick certain songs on Spotify vs just a general type on Pandora?

Yes to both above. Spotify you have a library, pandora you just have radio. Spotify has a radio function too.

Yes, not sure how many you can store on your phone, but that option exists...

I think you can if you sign up for the premium version. I think I might do the free version and see how that works. I can't download music anymore, so I have to find something else to get a variety of music.

They are both amazing..

in my car I listen to Pandora, and never turn on my FM radio.. and have completely stopped paying for XM.

When I'm around a computer, my "music library" is spotify.. if I want a CD (like the new M&S CD..) I do buy it so I can listen to it in my car, but I don't mind supporting artist either.

Yes you can listen offline, only via mobile with the paid version though. And you can dl as many as your device can hold.

It's 10 dollars a month for mobile version of spotify but you get pretty much anything you can think of. Not always or every live album but I think it's definitely worth it

With spotify you get to choose the specific songs you want to listen to. With Pandora, you can't choose.

To use spotify on your phone, it is 10 dollars a month, which is what Mobile premium is.

You can use the radio just like Pandora but you can also save the songs to playlists and move throughout the songs and skip as much as you want

Admittily they still have work to do on the radio function because its really brand new for them but its still worth the money

Pay for Spotify. Now I only have to pirate my movies and TV shows that aren't on Hulu, Netflix, or HBOGO.


I'm trying to "cut the cord". So far, so good.

You really can't even compare the two. I think services like Spotify are the future, and have the potential to displace pirating. Many have said and I agree that when the music industry implements an affordable and accessible means of consuming music that is easy to use and technologically up to date, people will pay to use it rather than stealing. Spotify is easier to use than usenet or torrenting, and completely legal.

Now if they'd only let me upload my personal library to the cloud so I could stream previously downloaded songs on my phone through the Spotify app, I'd be a happy camper.
