Pandora Announcement

Pioneer remains a strong supporter of music services, despite Pandora exit.

Following the recent announcement Pandora will be winding-down its music service in Australia and New Zealand, Pioneer Electronics Australia reveals it will increase its range of popular smartphone and music services in the car.

In a move that will see Pioneer offer the largest and most affordable range of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto after-market solutions in Australia; consumers can now enjoy music streaming services like Spotify, iTunes Music and Google Play Music, at a more consumer-friendly price point.

“Whilst Pioneer is disappointed to see Pandora close its music service in Australia, we are fortunate to be in a market-leading position, whereby our in-vehicle solutions are compatible with Australia’s biggest music streaming services, like Spotify and iTunes Music.

In a win for consumers, Pioneer is now offering Apple CarPlay at a starting price point of $650 RRP,” says Paul Petrakis, GM of sales and marketing at Pioneer Electronics Australia Pty Ltd.

As a result of Pandora’s decision to discontinue its operations in Australia and New Zealand, all (Pandora) compatible Pioneer headunits will continue to function as per normal, however without the use of the Pandora feature.

For those consumers hoping to replace Pandora compatibility on their existing headunit with another music streaming service; due to hardware limitations, Pioneer is unable to replace Pandora connectivity with another service.
