How to Convert Pandora Music to AAC Format

Pandora is the leading music and podcast discovery platform, delivering a personalized listening experience to about 70 million monthly users. Pandora is smart enough to find music that matches your taste. Pandora provides two account types, a free account and a subscription membership. Pandora's free members can enjoy Pandora Music with ads or other restrictions, while Pandora subscribers can unlock more features, such as music with higher audio quality, offline music downloads, and more.

Due to licensing restrictions, Pandora is only available within the United States. And even paid users can only enjoy Pandora offline playback in the Pandora app. So, how can Pandora's free users and subscribers enjoy Pandora Music outside of the US? The best way is to download the music tracks as a local file, and the AAC format is a good choice. If you are still troubled by how to convert Pandora songs, don't miss this article. What I want to share with you today is how to crack the magic of Pandora, that is, how to download Pandora Music in AAC format.

Part 1. What is AAC Format?

The AAC extension is short for Advanced Audio Coding, and it is a standard audio container format for compressed digital audio and music data. Launched as the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves better sound quality than MP3 encoders under the same bit rate.

Let's briefly review its development history. In April 2003, Apple announced that its iTunes and iPod products would support songs in the MPEG-4 AAC format. Customers can now download music through the iTunes Store in a DRM-protected 128 kbps AAC format or use iTunes to create DRM-free files from their CDs. In subsequent music videos or movies provided by Apple, AAC is also used for audio encoding.

So far, AAC has been a widely used audio format. This format is used as the default media format by YouTube, Apple iTunes, iOS devices, etc.

Part 2. How to Convert and Download Pandora Music as AAC Files?

Listening to songs on the Pandora platform has always been a good choice, where users can listen to their favorite music. Like other competitors who adopt a subscription system, Pandora only provides offline music listening to paying users.

But you don't need to worry since it is also effortless to break these limitations. You just have to find the right tools and techniques.
