    "Among other music streaming alternatives, I'd say Google Play Music could be one of the best alternatives to Pandora because 1) the online interface is sleek and so easy to explore 2) better sound quality 3) the Unlimited plan comes with free access to YouTube Red, it's like hitting two birds in one stone. And of course, they have a wide selection of music to choose from. "

    "Spotify is my pandora alternative app. It is my sweet escape from stress. It's really my go-to app whatever mood I'm in. I actually have every playlist for my daily activities.

    " As a long-time user of Pandora, I find it really hard to decide which app can measure up to it until my dad asked me to download an app where he can listen to radio stations. I got this and tried how it works and I was surprised by its features. It has a lot to offer especially the radio channels! Now I'm listening to this app as well."

    "Has great music collection but this could've been better if it's allowed to save your favorite song for easy access. However, 15-skips of songs per day is commendable. I don't think I've consumed it all since I'm always busy to skip everytime. lol"
