Pandora Premium Sessions
A Pandora Premium Session allows listeners to listen to content on-demand or try Pandora Premium without committing to a subscription.
Here's how it works:
After interacting with an ad, you'll receive a complimentary session of Pandora Premium.
Once activated, you will be able to enjoy the following Pandora Premium features:
- Play songs or albums on-demand
- Create custom playlists
- Access higher quality audio
- Receive ad-free listening, additional skips and replays on your stations
Because these sessions are funded by advertisements, your account will return to your regular service automatically at the end of the session and you won’t be charged any Pandora Premium fees.
Additionally, these sessions are purely optional; you will have the option to decline them.
There are two ways to unlock a Pandora Premium Session:
- Click a link shared through Pandora emails, social posts, push notifications, or messages from our ad partners
- Search our library for a song or album, and click play.
Choosing either of these methods will trigger a short advertisement, after which you can enjoy your on-demand content.
When your session expires, your account will return to normal and you will not be billed, as no credit card is required to take advantage of these sessions. Feel free to try out Pandora Premium Sessions as frequently as you'd like!
The average length of your complimentary session may fluctuate. However, you can always initiate a new session when the current one expires; either way, we’ll automatically save your on-demand music collection for your next Premium experience.
The ad-supported Pandora and Pandora Plus apps will look different from Pandora Premium. If you're needing some guidance with how to use the Pandora Premium app, visit the Pandora Premium section of our help page.
Please note, Premium features are only available on XFINITY X1, iOS mobile phones, or Android and Kindle devices with the latest version of the Pandora app.
If you do decide to initiate a Pandora Premium Session, rest assured that you won’t be billed. You do not need to cancel anything; unlike our subscriptions, no credit card or code is required to activate a Premium Session.
Because the additional cost of these sessions are funded by advertisements, your account will return to your regular service automatically. You can initiate them without worrying about being charged for Premium.
However, If you enjoy your Pandora Premium Session and would like to officially upgrade your account visit https://pandora.com/upgrade
We'll keep any playlists and stations saved for you in case you decide to initiate another Pandora Premium Session in the future.
