    Pandora Premium today announced new discounted subscriptions offered to students and members of the military.

    Just like offerings from Apple Music and Spotify, students will now be able to pay just $4.99/month for the Pandora Student Plan, compared to $9.99/month for everyone else. Premium offers subscribers the chance to listen to music on-demand and ad-free, and includes features like personalized playlists, radio stations, and more.

    The Pandora Military Plan will also provide a discount to active military and vets, priced at $7.99/month. Those who can take advantage of this discount include active duty, reservists, retirees, veterans, and military family members. Both the Pandora Military Plan and Pandora Student Plan include a 60-day free trial.

    Originally a live radio streaming service only, Pandora launched its on-demand music streaming platform in 2017 in an effort to compete with Apple Music and Spotify. The company continuously updates its iOS app, in January introducing a voice assistant to help subscribers quickly play music and jump around the app.

    Although student discounts are common, a price cut for individuals in the military is not offered by either Apple Music or Spotify. Tidal, however, does have a few military-related discounts, starting at $5.99 for a basic monthly plan and rising to $11.99 per month for a Hi-Fi audio plan.

    Well, seeing that I’m the only person in the world that still uses Pandora apparently, and I am no longer a student or in the military, I don’t get why they’re doing this.

    I might be interested in using the veterans discount, as I use the free-version Pandora more than any other music streaming service.

    But, imo Pandora has gotten really buggy over the past 8 month. Sometimes, it just doesn't work.

    It is free and ad-supported, so I really am not going to complain about it, but if I started paying a sub for it, discount or not, I would expect a lot less bugs and glitches.

    Maybe I will try the trial.

    I use Pandora too. They integrate with Siri better.
