How about higher audio quality? Amazon has introduced this feature, and others have been ahead of Pandora as well. It would be great to have the Genome Project advantage with higher audio quality. Do others agree?

I think that's right. Pandora was way out in front in the area of content selection, but Apple's machine learning caught up and the audio quality on Apple Music is in a completely different league. I left Pandora for Apple Music, and I appreciate Apple Music's deeper catalog and (now) better music discovery...and of course vastly better sound quality, which is the primary point. Although some spatial audio remasters on Apple Music are better than others, overall it's a great new experience. It's also nice to be part of something that continues to get better, with dedicated development effort. Maybe one day Pandora will start evolving again, but we haven't seen an indication of that in years.
Pandora seems to still be living in the '00s, where quality isn't a factor. I can't believe a paid subscriber doesn't get a better bitrate than a free member on phones or on streaming devices like a Roku, and the bitrates they do provide are sort of absurd. Interested in higher quality options that others have found...
Pandora really needs to switch to lossless CD quality and higher resolutions up to at least 192/24 and the highest DSD rates. Although Spotify has been dragging it’s feet about as long as Pandora in offering higher quality streaming rates at least they comment every few years or so in their community about it although it is almost like not commenting on it at all as they basically brush it off and the Spotify community request for lossless audio has been going on since 2014! Has 25,874 votes and 442 pages of comments and is I believe the number one request they have. Get off your duff Pandora and get ahead of the competition again!
