As I said last week I finally got spotify! There are a few differences between it and Pandora although I still think they both have their uses. Today, I will take the time to outline a few of the major differences. I hope it is helpful in determining whether you choose to use one or the other or both.
Finding new artists
In terms of random artists you’d never expect to come up, Pandora wins this battle. However with Spotify you can click the related artists tab and what really sets it over the edge is you can then listen to all the previous albums, singles and related material that artist had done.
Listening to your favorite music:
The concept behind Pandora is great however I believe spotify has a distinct advantage in that you can create your own playlists. Unlike Pandora you can listen to songs you marked as your favorites and then check similar/related artists to hear new stuff. It’s like a mix between Itunes and Pandora!
Ease of use:
This is probably the only one I would give to Pandora as all you have to do is type in an artist and it will make a station for you whereas with Spotify you actually have to specifically search for new artists.
