Pandora is great for (home) parties. What you won’t be happy with, like in most free streaming apps: ads. You will eventually have to pay for a premium subscription for $5 bucks to get the most out of it and escape the voice over ads. You can make plenty music stations as you want. Some people feel like Pandora’s playlists sound too repetitive at times. Keep in mind that other music streaming services offer about 20 times more songs! A way to avoid that is to up vote or down vote certain songs and the playlist will learn from you and offer more of what you liked.

Beats Music

Pick up your Beats by Dre headphones. Plug-in your jack and start finding the music genres and artists you like and the app will create stations just for you. I’d understand if you’re not amazed by this feature because, yeah, most music apps will give you this feature. Or you can choose a station based on artists or you can use the Sentence feature to find music based on your current mood.
