Pandora redesigns its site, ditches listening caps

The Pandora Medi Web site has undergone (David Paul Morris - BLOOMBERG)
Pandora, the streaming music suggestion service, unveiled a whole new look Wednesday, and announced that it’s ditched listening caps that were an incentive to upgrade to its paid offering.

“We’ve removed the 40 hours listening cap,” the company announced in a blog post Wednesday. The company will contact users who exceed 320 hours a month, Mashable reported.

The site also saw a complete site overhaul, aimed to make it easier for users to make and maintain stations. The changes retool the site’s controls and make it easier to share music with friends.

Each channel now has its own URL, which users can share via Facebook, Twitter and Pandora’s own new social feed.

Users can now follow each other’s stations if they import their friends from Facebook, and comment or “like” them as well.
