Just like offerings from Apple Music and Spotify, students will now be able to pay just $4.99/month for the Pandora Student Plan, compared to $9.99/month for everyone else. Premium offers subscribers the chance to listen to music on-demand and ad-free, and includes features like personalized playlists, radio stations, and more.
The Pandora Military Plan will also provide a discount to active military and vets, priced at $7.99/month. Those who can take advantage of this discount include active duty, reservists, retirees, veterans, and military family members. Both the Pandora Military Plan and Pandora Student Plan include a 60-day free trial.
Originally a live radio streaming service only, Pandora launched its on-demand music streaming platform in 2017 in an effort to compete with Apple Music and Spotify. The company continuously updates its iOS app, in January introducing a voice assistant to help subscribers quickly play music and jump around the app.
Although student discounts are common, a price cut for individuals in the military is not offered by either Apple Music or Spotify. Tidal, however, does have a few military-related discounts, starting at $5.99 for a basic monthly plan and rising to $11.99 per month for a Hi-Fi audio plan.
