Despite a recent decision to put a cap on how much time free users get, Pandora has grown to over 200 million users with 1.5 billion hours of music listened to every month.




Those numbers cover the total number of US users to date, and more than half of them were added in the last two years. That equates to over 100 million new users since 2011. The service sees about 67 million active users per month, which in itself is a staggering number. Pandora streams 200 million songs before 10AM every day, features more than 100,000 unique artist, and more than one million songs in its library. Roughly 140 million Pandora subscribers use the service on their mobile devices.


In an interview with TheNextWeb, Pandora Founder Tim Westergren, had the following to say:


"We started this company to help people discover and enjoy music they love, and to help artists reach and grow their audiences. Only in our wildest dreams did we imagine what it would become.


It is now clear that radio is changing, and that's great news for music fans and for the tens of thousands of working artists who now have a home on the air."
