Only Pandora Premium subscribers can create playlists of their favorite content on Pandora. Unfortunately, you can’t make playlists if you’re a free Pandora streamer or a Pandora Plus subscriber. Stations on Pandora Premium act more like terrestrial radio stations, which are guided by Thumb feedback or added seeds. While listening to a station, you can Thumb Up or Down songs to help Pandora learn what to play next. Playlists are guided by your personal choice. You can add specific songs in the order you prefer.

Pandora will curate playlists personalized just for you. You can also create playlists with your favorite songs.
