The Music Genome Project has compiled hundreds of musical details for each song, including melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals and lyrics, which enable Pandora to play songs that share similar musical characteristics with the listener’s favorite songs, artists or musical genres.

In addition to providing its subscribers access on the Web via computers and laptops, Pandora is now also available on a variety of smartphones and mobile devices, including Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch devices, Android-powered smartphones, BlackBerry platforms and Windows Mobile devices, as well as on various standalone systems such as Sonos products, Roku DVP radios and newer Web-enabled audio receivers from companies like Yamaha and Sony.
