Pandora Ends Free Listening Limits, Launches New HTML5 Player

Maybe it’s a reaction to “free music” competitor Spotify, but Pandora has gotten rid of it’s 40 hour free listening cap.  The move came on the same day that the service rolled out a new HTML5 player with more social sharing to all users.  Some of these new features include:

Faster Load Time

Simplified Station Creation – Enhanced auto complete choices & personalized suggestions make creating new stations & discovering new music more personal.

Social Features & Sharing Tools – Enhanced listener profiles & a new music feed offer a centralized place to find, like & comment on what friends & like minded listeners are checking out on Pandora. Stations now have their own personal URLs, making it easier to share on Twitter and/or Facebook

Improved Control – Same old features we all love (play, pause, thumbs up, thumbs down.) Along with a new shuffle feature which will allow listeners to shuffle any collection of stations.

Enhanced Artist Information – Option to learn more about the music, find lyrics, read bios and expand album art.

Unlimited Listening – No longer a cap for free users.
