Pandora Launches Personalized Station Recommendations for iOS and Android users

Pandora has announced that it has added a new feature to its music service for users on the iOS and Android platforms. The new feature will make it easier to find stations on the Pandora service that the user will like. The recommendation feature leverages Pandora's recommendation technology to suggest new stations based on the listener preferences.

That data is leveraged to create up to six personalized artist stations at a time. Those recommended stations are displayed on the user station list and when the user deletes a station.

Pandora’s Chief Scientist, Eric Bieschke, said, “Music discovery has always been at the heart of the Pandora experience and we’ve spent the last thirteen years working on the most sophisticated music recommendation system ever created. With a highly engaged audience of 76.2 million active monthly listeners, who have registered more than 35 billion pieces of thumb feedback, Pandora is uniquely positioned to deliver the perfect balance of familiarity, discovery, relevance and repetition for each individual listener. We are excited to apply this same thinking to station recommendations on mobile devices.”

Pandora says that the more the user engages with its new product enhancement, the better its recommendations will be. The stations recommended are optimized over time as the user takes advantage of the app and features.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
