Both Spotify and Apple Music have offered similar family plans for years, so while Pandora might be late to the party, this might be a case of "better late than never" for the popular service.

Pandora explains that the new package offers "all of the features of Pandora Premium to up to six unique Pandora accounts simultaneously" and costs $14.99 Dollars monthly or $164.89 annually. Those include the ability to choose your own music, create radio stations, customize playlists, download music for offline listening, skipping and replaying songs at will, higher-quality audio, and no ads.

If you already have a Pandora subscription, or if you're now in a trial period, you can move to the Premium Family plan by selecting the Switch Plans option within your account settings. Music lists are generated for users based on what Pandora knows about them as individuals, its knowledge of music itself via its Music Genome Project, 75 algorithms built with machine learning, and the expertise of the company's curatorial team. If you aren't now signed up for a Pandora Premium plan, you can also take advantage of a 60-day free trial offer to see if the plan's right for you. If you subscribed through iTunes, Amazon, Roku or Google Play, however, you'll have to cancel your subscription and sign up all over again.
