Pandora has been trialing its service in Australia and New Zealand via a web-only trial, and now it has launched the service fully in both countries. Users down under can now sign up and have fully-functional Pandora accounts, including the apps on both Android and iOS. Pandora says that 75-percent of its traffic in the U.S. comes from mobile apps, so this is a big deal to be offering complete access to the new countries as well.

Australia and New Zealand are the first countries outside of the U.S. to have full access to Pandora, and hopefully the deals can be made to let the rollout continue to other countries also. Eager Aussies can grab a download of the app at the Google Play Store link above.

Pandora launches fully in Australia and New Zealand


I, for one, eagerly awaited for Pandora to come to my country... two years ago. After Spotify came out and offered free radio, after Grooveshark came out and offered free on-demand streaming, and then someone introduced me to Jango and Songza, I found myself suddenly asking: Pandora? Why would I need that?

Please please bring to the UK! Pandora is sorely missed since moving here.. Don't care what people say, spotify is no substitute.
