However, they did not specify how long that Premium freebie will last, but you can go and watch more ads if you want to prolong the experience (which is kind of weird because you're trying to avoid the ads in the first place).
Pandora users in the free tier will now be able to access Pandora Premium by watching ads. And if you were someone who didn't subscribe to a premium service like Spotify or Apple Music, you probably ran right into the arms of YouTube to hear that new song - where the economics for music labels have historically been pretty terrible.
