How to listen on multiple devices when upgraded

Local Performer

I have a Pandora Premium Military account. But it tells me someone else is listening. How many people can stream at the same time?

Hi @Dutchboyjohn  You can sign into the same Pandora account on any computer or supported device, as long as you use the same email address and Pandora password.

However, you won't be able to listen to that same Pandora account on multiple devices at the same time.

Unlike broadcast radio, which all drivers hear in the car at the same time, each internet-connected device used to access Pandora receives its own unique stream of personalized music. Similar to other online streaming services, our music licenses limit our ability to stream from a single account on more than one device at a time. As a result, your subscription to Pandora Plus, Pandora Premium, or Pandora Premium Family will only cover the cost of one stream to one device (per Pandora account).

For now, the only way to get the same stream to play in different locations is to play Pandora using a system that groups multiple speakers through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or a wired connection. Some examples of these systems include Sonos, Chromecast, and Amazon Alexa devices.

Pandora Premium Military How many listeners at once

Moderator
Moderator

@dratifk Pandora Premium Military accounts are meant for individual, non-commercial use. The cost of an individual subscription only covers the costs of one stream of ad-free songs.

You can play your account on any supported computer or device you own, however, only one person can listen at a time on your account. If our system detects that your account is playing on more than one device at the same time, you will be notified with an audio and/or display message that pauses your music.

Alternatively, you could play music from multiple Pandora accounts if you upgrade to the family plan. Pandora Premium Family allows you to upgrade up to 6 unique Pandora Premium accounts, and use all 6 of them simultaneously.

You can find additional information on the Pandora Premium Family subscription here

More than one device

Local Performer

I am a new paid subscriber. And now that I have started to pay for my Pandora music, I can only have one listener at a time. We have 4 iPhones three iPads and two MacBooks all they listen to Pandora. But now that I pay for the Pandora plus, only one works at a time. Please explain. Do I have to cancel my subscription and go back to the free version?

Re: More than one device

This is the stupidest restriction I have ever heard of. So now that I signed up for pandora plus, my 10+ alexa devices in my household cannot play music at the same time, but when i was using a free non premium account, I could play as many devices as I want simultaneously? My wife is upstairs trying to play music while I am downstairs working trying to play music at the same time, but i guess thats what paying $60/year gives you instead of free.

 

Free Pandora Account > Play all the music you like, just with ads

Paid Pandora Account > only one device, but no ads

 

Your CTO and dev team must be a bunch of ignorant individuals. I think i will stick to the ads / use spotify until you get your heads straight.

@Detective9 I moved your post to this thread since you had a similar question.

How many people/relatives can use an individual Pandora Premium subscription:

To clarify, you can play your account on any supported computer or device you own, however, only one person can listen at a time on your account. If our system detects that your account is playing on more than one device at the same time, you will be notified with an audio and/or display message that pauses your music.

Creating additional profiles for an account:

There is not currently a way to create additional profiles for an account. 

Alternatively, you could play music from multiple Pandora accounts if you upgrade to the family plan. Pandora Premium Family allows you to upgrade up to 6 unique Pandora Premium accounts, and use all 6 of them simultaneously.

You can find additional information on the Pandora Premium Family subscription here

*Please note you must be at least 21 years of age to purchase this subscription and be the master account holder.
