MOBILE, Ala. - Pandora has decided to give it's listeners more free music-listening time.
Billboard.com says the web-streaming service will end its limit on cell-phone listening on September 1. To compensate for the change, it will be introducing a new limit on song skips. Listeners will only be allowed twelve song skips per twenty-four hours. That's a big change from their current rule of six skips per station every hour. The company will also be adding a new "sleep timer" feature. Billboard says the timer will turn off Pandora after a preset period of time.
