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

I am very disappointed that I cannot play the same song from the same pandora account at the same time. This would be a useful feature while you are running all over the house cleaning. I really doubt it is actually licensing restrictions as the one song at a time per account is much more restrictive.
Please reconsider adding this as an optional feature. It would be easy enough to implement. All you would do is upon a login, you would check if the account is already logged in and if the option is set to true, then push the same song, from beginning, to every device running on this same account.
Seriously - I don't mind paying a premium but would like the ability to stream to multiple devices concurrently - we use sonos and sometimes we want to listen to different music concurrently in different rooms - we have one login for sonos on our network - we should be able to have one pandora account associated - call it premium multi device - we would pay for the upgrade to multi devices - have a separate login doesn't work for our system so we either have to agree to what to play or one is listening to pandora and one is listening to spotify - When will you figure this out - hopefully before we all jump ship! Right now we like the music stations versus playlist more so we stick with pandora but it is not as convenient - I hate getting my music listening hi-jacked by another user in the house - willing to pay to have this stop but PANDORA doesn't have a solution. Multiple accounts is NOT the solution, it doesn't work with our multi room streaming system. A multi device account is the the solution - please figure this out.
@Leitz To clarify, there isn't currently any subscription level that allows you to listen to the same Pandora account on multiple devices simultaneously.
However, a workaround for this would be to create separate accounts for each device you want to use, and then add them all to the Premium Family plan you sign up for.
Upgrading to the Family Plan means that you and up to five other accounts can enjoy all of the benefits of Pandora Premium, while keeping your individual Pandora accounts.
In order to make this work, you will first need to set up separate Pandora accounts using different email addresses for each of those devices.
Once those accounts are created (if they aren't yet already), you can then send them an invitation to join your family plan subscription.
They should then be able to accept the invitation to the family plan subscription you sent.
I hope this clarifies things a bit! Let me know if you run into issues with this after the new accounts are set up.
