I’ve been listening to Pandora for a long time. The recent political ads though, come on—- Me: everytime I hear ad about joe Biden being a socialist . Does that mean we're doing away with systemic inequalities? We're gonna fix then? Does that mean we get universal healthcare?? We're making education affordable ?? Umm... common sense gun legislation and lobbyists out of DC? 😐😐Republican lite You guys were doing so good syncing ads to listeners Until this.

This is one of my most used apps on my phone, I listen to music almost constantly, and Pandora is honestly just perfect for it, the ads are all the same length, unlike YouTube, where I don't know if I'm gonna have to pick up the phone to skip a 3 minute ad. The free version is really nice, I think it's a fair amount of time to experience the free trail, and just one 15 second ad to do it! (*゚∀゚) It's just a really well put together app, that I use on a daily basis
Enjoy the music

I do love it!! But...
by Chopastik on 2020/09/21 02:09
I do really love this app. I have had it for years now. 6-7-8. Not real sure lol. But. I do get tired of the repeating on a station. I also would tighter cuts on the thum down. Meaning- it will play more songs that rather similar. Might just be me. This only my opinion. Besides that. I love it.
Update the Apple TV 4th Gen app already!
by Whatever79 on 2020/09/21 00:05
Love the app except for the fact that every other song’s info and artwork does not show on the screen! Kind of important to know who the artist is and what song is playing. Get this updated Pandora!

Honestly, I like the system but I think that you should get as many skips and our own playlist. It’s just that when I want this song it won’t play

I love Pandora! I literally have been using it for the past five or six years now and it just gets better and better for streaming music, and It’s still super great even if you don’t have premium which is something I absolutely love about it! (I know this sounds like and advertisement or something but I highly recommend it!)

Recently more commercials than AM/FM radio
by M3goober on 2020/09/20 20:57
It’s becoming more and more of a issue, commercials vs content. I may switch for the first time in 10 years because this isn’t the app I originally fell in love with. I’ve listened to this app for about 10 years, 40 hours a week. Lately the content for stations repeat the same 10 songs and play 2-3 commercials every 5 minutes. This would be fine if new content was being played and commercials that I could understand. I live in Virginia USA and all the commercials are in Spanish. I might be switching soon unfortunately!

One acct/family?
by 756huj on 2020/09/20 15:57
It’s just my husband and me in the family. He is in the hospital and the nurse turned Pandora on on his phone. Pandora will not let me listen to it because “someone is already using our account”. Am I supposed to pay double so my husband and I can each listen to it?? Crazy. I clicked only one star cuz I’m so annoyed but I can’t post with one star because of course ALL nicknames have already been used - how convenient for Pandora.
Please more podcasts
by dizzy disc on 2020/09/20 14:32
I got this app expecting it to be similar to its competitor, Spotify. It’s VERY different, but in a good way. Well, in most ways. Spotify has a vast collection of podcasts, unlike Pandora. There’s only a few podcasts that I like; and none of them are on here. Like the Lunch Club podcast. HOW ISN’T LUNCH CLUB ON HERE?!? Just, please add more podcasts (hopefully including lunch club).

My favorite thing to do is sit at my sewing machine, weather quilting or making masks, and listening to Pandora. I hear music I would have never heard on the radio, then I like the song and go and explore what else I might like from that artist! So worth the money to not hear commercials either!

ios Version doesn’t allow Car controls to do replays
by Scalrtn on 2020/09/19 00:55
When I used Pandora on android/bluetooth I could do replays of tunes (where allowed) using the “Rewind” button in my car’s entertainment console. In ios, for some reason, this no longer works, and the replay icon within the phone app itself is the only way to do a replay. This is annoying, and I believe hazardous, since it demands the driver unnecessary distraction. Please fix this !

The song-picking engine behind it is creepily accurate
by *Zeta* on 2020/09/18 22:09
I chose a song that I liked, picked “start station,” and after liking and disliking a few songs, it’s playing all my favorite songs (this is insane!) Tips for getting a good station: 1) Pick a song that could be classified in multiple genres 2) Pick a song that is in an album you like and by an artist you like 3) Don’t like or dislike every song - if you think one might lead to songs you don’t like but you think the song is ok, then just leave it!

Buggy and awful talking alerts
by Moon_shadow2973830 on 2020/09/18 13:19
Recently I’ve been having issues with pandora cutting in and out on wifi, I had to delete and redownload it to get it to stop and it’s not the first time that’s happened. I do update when I see it needs an update and that’s when it seems like the issue happens, right after I update. I’ve never had pandora ‘talk’ to me before one of the more recent updates either. I pay to not have ads and that means not listen to people talk, I don’t want to hear pandora say ‘you’ve lost signal’ or ‘someone else is listening’. I’m well aware when that happens because I’m literally staring at the screen, I don’t want or need to hear it, please allow people to disable the talking alerts.

by DatNysha on 2020/09/18 12:36
Looking back for the past year, there’s been a massive increase in glitches and crashes—like every other day now. It was not like this 10 years ago. There’s always “connection issues”...when every other app on my phone works perfectly fine with the internet. I’m starting think that’s the general page that pops ups for every problem, not necessarily connection to the Internet. I’m sending data, so please fix the bugs 🙄.
What’s up with the ADDS?

Bias
by E.Hawke on 2020/09/18 09:22
Other than the App, which is great. My issue is with the ads. I have no issue that the ads are present, my problem is there’s way to much political ads, which I’m sick and tired of what’s happening already. Especially these ads are completely bias. Nonstop trump this and trump that, vote Biden vote Biden. Give me a break. If you’re going to run Biden ads every other ad, put trump just as much. Or better yet, no political ads at all, cause I don’t care. Run food ads, clothes, services, whatever just not political propaganda
I great
by someoneokok on 2020/09/18 06:43
I love this app. but it has a problem when I watch a video. so I can switch stations and so I can make a playlist. When it runs out I can’t listen to that station that I made. And I don’t want to skip through all my song just to finish the music. So I would like if when the little premium runs out to keep the playlist going. Thx❤️

Super slow and buggy
by Saltythealmond on 2020/09/18 03:24
I use Pandora for only Christmas music and each year it’s a disaster. “My station” just plays random songs that aren’t even related to my Christmas station. I have to use crowd favs which isn’t as tuned to me. On top of that, the app is super buggy. It’ll randomly freeze and stop my music, not register taps, and the ease of use is just awful. I feel like there’s now more ads in pandora now. If I remember it was 1 ad before but now 2 ads play every 2-3 songs. I mean come on Pandora, are you that desperate for money?
I love pandora just one slight problem with it

Pandora is a music box
by Heatherbug144 on 2020/09/17 22:17
My favorite music streaming service. I have been a dedicated pandora person for what feels like forever. I listen to a wide variety of music and they haven't failed me yet on introducing me to a new artist or band or song that fits with my taste. I pay for the plus for no ads and the ability to listen offline because my cell plan is still by the gig. The offline mode is super handy. I can use it on a wide variety of tech, from Amazon to iPhone, to Google Home to the desktop. It's not limited by what kind of tech you have. I like that a lot. All it needs now is an iPhone widget, hint hint. ;)
Pandora Fan/User
by Andrew Krom 1992 on 2020/09/17 00:40
I’ve been using Pandora to stream all of my music for going on at least 10 years minimum I believe even longer! I have zero complaints About the service the only thing that i could even start to complain about is the Ads, although come on people is steaming free music that plays stuff you enjoy listening to and if you don’t like what’s playing just give it a thumbs down and Pandora remembers everything you don’t like a as well as giving the thumbs up for all The music you do like, and instantly starts playing another song!! I mean What else could you ask for??? Seriously free music you love and the ads are only 30 second long, whoopty doo! Stop complaining that it needs to be better there’s nothing else to change to make it any better Pandora is here now and isn’t going anywhere soon! Thanks to everybody who runs the App and streams ask the music on there as well as the producers them selves the only peeled I see complaining about this service would be the Song Artist because they are losing money keep crying you all are already multi-millionaires you are still okay money is the root of all evil just be happy with what you have and keep doing the job you love which is producing great wonderful music that changes people’s lives!!!!
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
App needs so much work

The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.
Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Nothing compared to Apple Music
by Caleb1744 on 2020/02/05 12:11
There are a lot of adds on Pandora and after paying the smaller subscription (something like $5 a month), I found that I was still limited in what I could do. I was not able to make or edit playlists nearly as well as Apple Music if at all (I never figured it out), the amount of likes and dislikes was also limited. There came several times when I noticed an apparent glitch in the system as well. There was a type of song that continued to play on a certain violin station (Daniel D) that sounded almost like a metronome. I pushed dislike. But then, as if I actually pushed “like”, it played another similar song. Before I knew it, I was listening to nothing but that type of music and patiently disliking every last one. Then I ran out of dislikes. I have noticed that a lot of stations are seemingly preset mostly by popular trends. My likes and dislikes don’t have as strong an influence as they should. Basses on these disappointments, I decided to find somewhere else to get my music. I got Apple Music unlimited for $4.99 on school discount. I have unlimited access to anything - unlimited skips, easily editing of playlists, unlimited likes and dislikes, recommended albums to add to playlists, I can skip to the middle of any song. Pandora served its purpose, but Apple Music, while compared side by side with pandora, is much better.
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
Last update makes pandora insufferable.
by Snorydr on 2020/08/31 05:04
I have been happily using Pandora, commercial free, for years. Everything worked great, I never had to think about it. The last update has caused many many issues. First off, now I have to be on WiFi or in cell coverage to open pandora. No offline stations are accessible unless you are already online. If I am out of cell range I cannot open pandora until I am in cell range or WiFi. I get notices that pandora cannot he signed into, the station cannot he reached, or to change stations. There is no option to change stations or to go offline. When traveling this is incredibly frustrating to have to wait for the next cell coverage zone to open pandora. Why have offline stations downloaded onto my phone if I’m no longer allowed to use them? Also, when I run out of cell coverage, Pandora stops playing so it can tell me, “it looks like you’ve lost your internet connection so we are switching you to an offline station to keep the music playing”... you stopped the music to tell me you aren’t stopping the music. The regular chime that alerts me that pandora is switching to offline mode is adequate and not annoying. Please stop the lengthy diatribe about not stopping the music by stopping the music.
Pandora Plus...has its flaws.
by Courtney4367732 on 2020/02/16 17:39
First of all, with Plus you’re supposed to have the ability to listen to a few offline stations. In theory, it’s supposed to switch to offline mode automatically when you lose cell service or internet access...rarely ever does this happen automatically. Also, of the 4 available offline stations, usually only 1 works. At least a third of the time it will say all stations are unavailable and will play nothing. My second complaint is something that annoys me so much, I’ve been looking into other music services. Even though I pay for ad free and already have Pandora Plus, ads for Pandora Plus pop up constantly! Initially premium ads were coming up, and that’s annoying enough, but then to keep pushing Plus on me when I ALREADY HAVE IT is just too much for me. UPDATE... 2 years later still having the same issue with the switching between offline and online modes. Always messing up or making me do it manually (which is a massive pain due to an update a while back.) makes it very difficult to access this option while driving. Also still says stations are “unavailable” when offline even though I’ve downloaded them. Ugh.
It could be better
by Margaret Kellyyy on 2019/03/10 15:15
I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
It Used to Work
by C Dew on 2017/11/02 02:23
Pandora used to be my go-to music app. I was introduced to artists I never knew existed because they were similar to what I already enjoyed. When I got a new car with SYNC3, Pandora was rock solid. I could move from house to car and back without missing a beat. But several months ago, Pandora started having problems. When I get in the car, especially when using CarPlay, there’s no better than a 10% chance that I’ll be able to open Pandora, select a playlist and actually hear music. Most of the time it will give me a list of my playlists, but selecting a playlist just snaps back and does nothing no matter how many times I select it. Sometimes the app on the phone tells me “Poor network connection”, or its stuck asking me to start a free trial, or there’s a “Skip to Pandora” button. But you know what’s not there? Music! My home wi-fi is unchanged. There are no new cell towers. I have at least three bars. There is no reason why I can’t do today what I did for months without any problems, and that’s listen to music. So I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice. If I have to delete again, there won’t be another installation. And that’s sad because an app that once brought me so much good music and introduced me to so many artists, now brings only daily frustration.
Thumbprint Overrides Selection
by MrRTB on 2019/12/10 16:21
When I choose an Artist to listen to, I expect the majority of the music for that channel to be the Artist I selected, not just a few. It seems the more thumbprints your choose, the less of the actual artist you want to listen to actually get played. Recently is seems to be maybe 10-15% of the actual artist/musicians channel that is chosen actually gets their music. The only way I can see to fix the issue is to “Un-THUMBPRINT” the individual channels other artist/musician thumbprints to be able to listen to that channels music. The thumbprints should only be used as a guide for using the thumbprint channel itself, or to fill in an occasional selection. There should be no more than 25% of the thumbprint selections on an an individual / group artist / musicians channel except for thumbprint or various selection channels. Perhaps if people prefer thumbprints over the actual artist /musician selected, a setup panel for individuals to choose how much thumbprint they want to listen to Vs actual artist / musician channel would be appropriate. Very frustrated as a main source of listening and won’t subscribe because they (PANDORA) feels they know better about what I want to listen to than I do.
No radio zone.
by buddhaman79 on 2019/03/22 19:27
I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.
It’s alright...
by FreudTheFish on 2019/08/23 19:32
It’s a good music app and all but it has its flaws. For starters I’m tired of when it switches to autoplay from my playlist it’s usually the same songs in the same order...that’s not auto play. Switch it up man. I hate how when I am in auto play and I stop the app, not close it but stop it, and I go back into it it starts from my most recently played playlist....WHY??? I suggest making it easier to delete playlists or songs in the playlist without having to go into my profile and search around for eternity. Every playlist should have a delete option and every song in that playlist should have a swipe left to remove from playlist option. Another thing is I swear when I do delete a playlist or a song in the playlist it’s gone from my library....every song in that playlist will just poof....disappear. Finally when it comes to making a playlist, give the name it option like you do but give a plus icon so you can browse every song in your library with an add option instead of having to click every song individually, then the three dots, then add to playlist, then which playlist you want it in....simplify man come on!
Organization
by Go2camp on 2019/02/02 20:11
Hi. First if all, I would like to thank you for reading this request. Now I will get on with it. I really like Pandora, but I think that you should make it more organized. I think that the favorites should be on the top of all of the stations. I also think that to make it more attractive, the blue bar at the bottom of the screen should be either white, black, or non-existent. It’s just not attractive, and all of my friends and family agree. I’m sorry if you feel as if I am taking over your business, but that is just the way that the people want it. Only the album covers should be full with color. Everything else, I feel, should be black and white and grey. More modern = more attractive. Sorry, but it’s just what it is. My friends and I would also like if everytime we opened the app, music would not automatically start playing. I hope that you can find the time to make the changes in the next two weeks, or I will definitely be compelled to delete the app. I really do think that this app is a very good app and would like to give you props for making it. But the main point of this review is to tell you that the visual appearance of this app is just not attractive. Thank you for reading. Goodbye.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Why I love Pandora.
by Pastel Peach🌸 on 2019/11/30 20:17
Omg, Pandora is simply the BEST!! It’s a place where you can find all of you favorite songs for free! I LOVE MUSIC! And if you love music as much as I do, then your going to LOVE Pandora. I love it so much that I listen to it in bed! 😂 But... the only thing I wish was different about Pandora, is that I really wish there were more songs that have a clean version. Sometimes, when I start listening to a song, I search for a clean version of it just in case. Let’s say I wanted to listen to “On My Way” By Alan Walker & Sabrina Carpenter, then I would normally search for a clean version of that song. But sometimes, I click the normal version of it because I would think it didn’t have bad words in it due to the fact that it didn’t have a clean version. But then... I get startled by the cuss words. And then, just because of that, I tend to dislike the song. So whenever I hear that song on a different station, I will most likely 👎🏼 the song. I love you Pandora, but please please work on those clean versions!! I really enjoy your music, I can’t wait to see what you do next! To: Pandora From: Me ❤️
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Rather lacking...
by Baileyrhb on 2020/04/10 04:12
I do love Pandora, and I use this app all the time, but certain features never work on my phone; for example, the friend search, and Facebook linking. I tried those on my husband’s Samsung phone, and they work, but not on my iPhone for some reason. Deleting and reinstalling doesn’t help. I also think it’s rather lacking in features. There are some things that I would love to see in this app, and this is just my opinion of course, but I think Pandora should expand the social aspect of their service. The current friend feature is kind of pointless. I always thought it would be cool to be able to have more interactive features with friends’ profiles, like commenting, sharing, liking, etc. Having the option to display what you’re listening to at the moment, either publicly or just with friends, would be nice; I know there used to be a similar feature but it’s gone now, and it only showed the last station listened to, not real-time listening. (Of course this should be optional. Everything should be optional.) Another thing I would like to see would be some kind of listening statistics, more than just the vague ranking of what you’ve been listening to most recently.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Best thing
by JungKart on 2019/09/30 00:23
Ive had Pandora for YEARS. I finally upgraded to a paid account instead of free. I wish i had done this years ago. I have always loved pandora and have found so many of my favorite bands through Pandora. Now i used Pandora as a “therapy” or “medication”. Im a combat vet with serious PTSD and until very recently have been able to go without any pills due mostly to Pandora. I know that sounds silly but I legitimately medicate with music (specifically Pandora). I use special stations ive set up when i paint as well for inspiration and to keep the right mood or frame of mind or energy for the style im working on that night. Pandora has been and is currently a godsend for me and theres a decent chance I wouldn’t be here without it. Im a lifetime customer and incredibly appreciative of all the free years i accessed it as well. I hope someone up top reads this review because i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have no idea you’ve done in my life. Tearing up as I write this lol...THANK YOU.
Has something changed with the Pandora app???
by Musically Lost on 2018/10/13 06:36
Ive had Pandora for several years now, it is the free version. I have not been able to listen to my Pandora for over a week now. When I click into one of my stations, it doesn’t play. I can’t even click play, rewind, or fast forward. The icons are there but not highlighted. I have logged in and out. I’ve turned on/off my phone and I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app. I’ve done this multiple times and still nothing. When I exit out of the station to browse for other options, it says buffering...your station will be right back. I logged out of my account and had my son log into his account on my phone and his account works on my phone. I contacted the help support explaining all of this, and they sent me the troubleshooting information from their website after I explained I’ve already done all of the troubleshooting. The email they sent me said, if I was still having trouble, to respond to their email, which I did , and I still have not heard anything back. Horrible, horrible customer support.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.

Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Great App! But..
by ARTIECamJT on 2019/09/04 16:41
Hi! I’ve been using Pandora for awhile. But not like 4 years or something 😅. I just want to say I love this app! I love how you can search the song you want! I honestly don’t have a problem with seeing an add when you search for the song. I kinda like the way you made the add it’s very creative to :). Anyway the reason I’m typing this is because recently the app has been having bugs like this morning ((on this date)) when I search the song I want and then after watching the add it looks like I’m gonna listen to the song but then it stops and says “Something went wrong”. And so I’m like oh ok, I’ll just try it again. Then after the add it says the same thing! I was a little irritated about it.. so I just wanted to tell you guys that there are some bugs going on in the app. Oh and another thing I wanted to say is that sometimes there’s a little to much adds when in on a radio I like. Anyway! So far I LOVE this app! It’s improved so much! ☺️ Respond if you can!
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Not easy to use
by Ocaoivorew on 2019/11/19 19:40
I love the music I’ve found, BUT they say one is a single artist Chanel or station or whatever and the next with the same name plays that artist and others . But how can you see the difference . I’m basically using two stations because I can’t figure out how to navigate or try new things. I have premium and I think I should have a much better experience than this. Maybe an online how to use the thing and separate it Into free, plus and premium . Meanwhile I have two stations that play a variety around that artist and I like that. The other complaint I have is some of the artist choose that artists music from the worst they ever did, I’ll use Stevie Ray Vaughn for an example. The “ station” was playing all from an early album almost anyone who knows his music would cringe. Many of those same songs are on live albums and are so much better. To get them I had to search . Then it played one live album over and over. Very disappointing. Not all of his live songs are on one album! Gets worse . Got premium family. All this great stuff you can supposedly do, but do they say how? No. So you really don’t have any thing you didn’t have free
The Best Playlists
by steve.edwards on 2019/10/14 19:16
I’ve been using Pandora since 2003 or 2004 and it has introduced me to so many new artists that I have proudly shared with friends through the years. The patchwork of music that Pandora plays is still, I think, unparalleled when comparing the other big music streaming services. Being able to share new music with a friend and hear them say “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this before!” is all thanks to Pandora and has fed that hipster pride that many who enjoy music feel when they’ve “heard something that you’ve probably never heard of”. If I’m being honest I got to hear it only because Pandora heard it first and added it to whatever station I was listening to—Thank you Pandora for bringing so much great music to myself and those close to me AND allowing me to help cultivate stations throughout the years by giving a thumbs up, thumbs down, and to add variety to a station. PS: Reading the Artist bio’s when you get the chance can be really interesting!

Pandora filled my summer with exquisite songs and I found a lot of new music to listen to. I enjoyed the pleasant slow walks with quick steps in between running to soft calming tunes. I enjoyed the late night parties to Spanish music. I enjoyed the summer mornings spent playing basketball with my ball dribbling to the beat of drums. I could not put it into better words, but I felt like I was in love every single day in July and August. I cannot believe music has come this far. I cannot even trace where I found all such great music. The world definitely does not deserve Pandora because it gives more than we give back. I don't even have a favorite song. Because of all the great music Pandora has to offer. Rather I have a myriad of favorite songs ranging from R&B, pop, classic rock and romantic music. With artists like American Authors, OneRepublic, Pink, Daft Punk, and Taylor Swift. And favorite movie soundtracks like Paper Towns, Love Story, and Valerian. Love, yours truly, and number one listener: Veronica Andrade
Newest format is a let down.
by DrewDoehring on 2018/03/18 05:04
I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Pandora Harassment
by andrewsappreview on 2019/05/06 21:21
I’m only giving Pandora one star based on their usability and not the streaming quality itself. Using the app is generally good and easy. When you open the app while listening and attempt to change something you must wait every time and tell Pandora you do not wish to purchase Pandora Premium for $4.99. Asking me every time I want to change my station, look at your app, or give feedback to a song I’m prompted to deny paying for their service. How asinine it that? If a guy ask gets turned down once and keeps asking a girl out it becomes harassment. Essential Pandora is harassing its users into paying for its service when I clearly do not and will not do so. Sooo IF anyone reads this, why don’t you ask for a raise every time you do your job and see how well that works. If it works, keep the service. If it doesn’t, suggest changing this to maybe once a day and earn a raise with better customer support/ friendlier interface. Or do nothing because you don’t care and I’ll leave my review. If you change this I’ll also change my review to 5 stars because it is a good service, you’re just being obnoxious for no reason other than being obnoxious. Best of luck.
Life expression through harmony of time an place of the poetically timed !
by CookiePussy13 on 2018/09/19 04:36
Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
I love this app but something just happened...
by Glinderella on 2017/09/07 00:52
Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
No longer in Denial
by "aine" on 2019/09/26 20:00
I’ve been in denial over the functionality of Pandora for over a year now. After years of free listening with manageable ads I found that the number, frequency and length of ads went up exponentially about a year ago. So I decided to upgrade. Commercial free and offline listening were big selling points to me. However it’s not really commercial free is it? I would have to play an ad to replay a song and sometimes even to skip. And don’t get me started on the offline listening feature. I am a commuter and am often on the subways and I find that not only do I have to have turned on the offline listening option before I’m underground but I only have a selection of maybe a dozen songs in that playlist. If I don’t switch to the offline listening option before I’m out of range there is no offline listening for me at all. Instead I watch as Pandora skips and buffers through dozens of songs as I listen to the complaints of commuters around me. I can’t honestly note a praiseworthy aspect of Pandora right now and since I’ve canceled my subscription I have such a sense of alleviation. I am no longer wasting money or energy over an app that doesn’t work.
What happened
by ThePowerful on 2019/02/01 01:29
I used to love Pandora because it was free music that played all my favorite music and had a wide variety of music from movie soundtracks to music you hear everyday on the radio. But this past year or so Pandora hasn’t been the best. For one it used to have a problem where it would just shut off for no reason at all but that problem seemed to get fix. But now there’s a problem with loading the music, sometimes radio stations won’t load and you’ll either have to play with a couple of other stations and then go back to that one. I understand the concept of liking songs and hearing similar songs like that one you liked but they continuously play the same liked songs all the time. I realized that you’re better off not liking or disliking a song if you want to hear different music. The last thing is the ads. I know that’s how you make your money and a lot of us can’t afford to pay for premium but it’s annoying when you can only listen to 2 songs before an ad pops up. I wish y’all would fix some of these problems

by Seal Swimmings on 2019/12/26 23:01
I really enjoy your Pandora, I listen to it all the time and it was the commercial’s that was worth while to me as well. I am a out side , blanket person pushing my shopping cart around helping others who are wealthy. I find they are unique but are in need of survival techniques and staying healthy on the out side. Pandora relaxes me and I can swim 🏊‍♂️ in the dirty bay water, ice cold water in the winter and jog miles down the coast to warm up. I live in a tent and wear swimming trunks and stay on the beach just like the wealthy do except I am closer to the water than they are and I don’t pay anything to live in my small homeless tent. Pandora gets me in the mood to move my tent down the beach when I get a three day notice to vacate my current spot. Pandora helps me look for food in back of dumpsters behind grocery stores. ( dumpster diving) so if you want, keep giving me Pandora and I will keep listening and have a marry Christmas and a great new year. Joe Swimmer 🏊🏼 in the dirty bay water
Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT!
by Beccajean89 on 2019/05/13 14:31
I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
Needs work
by #worldofcolor on 2020/04/27 00:00
I was just listening to music, and I had explicit turned off and blocked, so music like that shouldn’t play, or they should at least have the swearing blocked. But I was just listening and one of the songs dropped the f bomb twice! This is unacceptable! I don’t swear and purposely turned that off! The app always stops playing at random times as well. I’ll hve turned it on, it will play two or three songs, but then it will suddenly stop playing, and there is nothing I can do but wait an hour or more before it plays anything, and then the exact same thing happens. It happens on my radio stations, and my playlists, and it’s really, really annoying. Overall, the app is great. There are most of the songs I want to listen to all there for when I want them, but there are still things that I wish I could change. I’m not sure if it’s just my device, or something going on with the app, but other than those two things I have no problem and would totally recommend pandora.
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.
My go to! But....
by TorresDotRealtor on 2019/11/01 00:51
I’ve had Pandora for a very long time and i enjoy how it knows me so well after a decade of listening. There are a few things i would add, such as a driving mode where touch controls are bigger and more pronounced. The upgrade pop up is freakin annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do, i do suggest maybe a delay when it pops up, because it appears as soon as you wake up your phone and ive hit that banner a million and one times so far when i try to change a station or song. As for the biggest issue right now is pandora when apple maps is open. It completely messes up voice turn by turn and you only get audio prompts which defeats the purpose of eyes on the road. No matter what settings i change in Pandora or maps, no voice turn by turn possible when playing a song. This doesn't happen with any other music app...just saying. Overall great music service and ill update the review as soon as these issue get fixed....running on iPhoneSE....i need to upgrade, i know, but youuu have the money? Exactly, so shut up. Lol jk Love you 😍
Used to be awesome but then...
by AceKing42 on 2017/10/12 18:52
I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
Terrible app!
by Ashley5330 on 2019/07/30 17:36
I really like Pandora, so I decided to get the premium version. 1. Unfortunately, one of my biggest issues is that the songs stop playing randomly unless I stay in the app with my phone on the whole time. This can get really annoying when you have to keep going back into the app to resume the song. 2. When I put the app in offline mode there are still lots of problems. I’ll be listening to my music while I’m doing something like hw and then it will start playing two songs at once. I can only pause one song and the other one just keeps playing. So, I have to go back in to close the app and wait a few minutes to reopen it and restart my playlist. 3. When I want to add new songs to a playlist i go to turn off offline mode, but then everything freezes! I can’t scroll, edit, or turn offline mode back on. I know that all of these have little fixes but it is such a pain to stop what you’re doing to fix these. Listening to music is supposed to be enjoyable and this just ruins it. I suggest to anyone wanting to get premium not too. I’d take the ads over this any day.

I’ve been listening to Pandora for a long time. The recent political ads though, come on—- Me: everytime I hear ad about joe Biden being a socialist . Does that mean we're doing away with systemic inequalities? We're gonna fix then? Does that mean we get universal healthcare?? We're making education affordable ?? Umm... common sense gun legislation and lobbyists out of DC? 😐😐Republican lite You guys were doing so good syncing ads to listeners Until this.

This is one of my most used apps on my phone, I listen to music almost constantly, and Pandora is honestly just perfect for it, the ads are all the same length, unlike YouTube, where I don't know if I'm gonna have to pick up the phone to skip a 3 minute ad. The free version is really nice, I think it's a fair amount of time to experience the free trail, and just one 15 second ad to do it! (*゚∀゚) It's just a really well put together app, that I use on a daily basis
Enjoy the music

I do love it!! But...
by Chopastik on 2020/09/21 02:09
I do really love this app. I have had it for years now. 6-7-8. Not real sure lol. But. I do get tired of the repeating on a station. I also would tighter cuts on the thum down. Meaning- it will play more songs that rather similar. Might just be me. This only my opinion. Besides that. I love it.
Update the Apple TV 4th Gen app already!
by Whatever79 on 2020/09/21 00:05
Love the app except for the fact that every other song’s info and artwork does not show on the screen! Kind of important to know who the artist is and what song is playing. Get this updated Pandora!

Honestly, I like the system but I think that you should get as many skips and our own playlist. It’s just that when I want this song it won’t play
Pandora=Amazing
by ljnaone on 2020/09/20 23:38
I love Pandora! I literally have been using it for the past five or six years now and it just gets better and better for streaming music, and It’s still super great even if you don’t have premium which is something I absolutely love about it! (I know this sounds like and advertisement or something but I highly recommend it!)
Awesome option 👏🏼👍🏼🤟🏼✌🏼

Recently more commercials than AM/FM radio
by M3goober on 2020/09/20 20:57
It’s becoming more and more of a issue, commercials vs content. I may switch for the first time in 10 years because this isn’t the app I originally fell in love with. I’ve listened to this app for about 10 years, 40 hours a week. Lately the content for stations repeat the same 10 songs and play 2-3 commercials every 5 minutes. This would be fine if new content was being played and commercials that I could understand. I live in Virginia USA and all the commercials are in Spanish. I might be switching soon unfortunately!

It’s just my husband and me in the family. He is in the hospital and the nurse turned Pandora on on his phone. Pandora will not let me listen to it because “someone is already using our account”. Am I supposed to pay double so my husband and I can each listen to it?? Crazy. I clicked only one star cuz I’m so annoyed but I can’t post with one star because of course ALL nicknames have already been used - how convenient for Pandora.
Please more podcasts
by dizzy disc on 2020/09/20 14:32
I got this app expecting it to be similar to its competitor, Spotify. It’s VERY different, but in a good way. Well, in most ways. Spotify has a vast collection of podcasts, unlike Pandora. There’s only a few podcasts that I like; and none of them are on here. Like the Lunch Club podcast. HOW ISN’T LUNCH CLUB ON HERE?!? Just, please add more podcasts (hopefully including lunch club).

ios Version doesn’t allow Car controls to do replays
by Scalrtn on 2020/09/19 00:55
When I used Pandora on android/bluetooth I could do replays of tunes (where allowed) using the “Rewind” button in my car’s entertainment console. In ios, for some reason, this no longer works, and the replay icon within the phone app itself is the only way to do a replay. This is annoying, and I believe hazardous, since it demands the driver unnecessary distraction. Please fix this !

The song-picking engine behind it is creepily accurate
by *Zeta* on 2020/09/18 22:09
I chose a song that I liked, picked “start station,” and after liking and disliking a few songs, it’s playing all my favorite songs (this is insane!) Tips for getting a good station: 1) Pick a song that could be classified in multiple genres 2) Pick a song that is in an album you like and by an artist you like 3) Don’t like or dislike every song - if you think one might lead to songs you don’t like but you think the song is ok, then just leave it!

Buggy and awful talking alerts
by Moon_shadow2973830 on 2020/09/18 13:19
Recently I’ve been having issues with pandora cutting in and out on wifi, I had to delete and redownload it to get it to stop and it’s not the first time that’s happened. I do update when I see it needs an update and that’s when it seems like the issue happens, right after I update. I’ve never had pandora ‘talk’ to me before one of the more recent updates either. I pay to not have ads and that means not listen to people talk, I don’t want to hear pandora say ‘you’ve lost signal’ or ‘someone else is listening’. I’m well aware when that happens because I’m literally staring at the screen, I don’t want or need to hear it, please allow people to disable the talking alerts.

Looking back for the past year, there’s been a massive increase in glitches and crashes—like every other day now. It was not like this 10 years ago. There’s always “connection issues”...when every other app on my phone works perfectly fine with the internet. I’m starting think that’s the general page that pops ups for every problem, not necessarily connection to the Internet. I’m sending data, so please fix the bugs 🙄.
What’s up with the ADDS?

by E.Hawke on 2020/09/18 09:22
Other than the App, which is great. My issue is with the ads. I have no issue that the ads are present, my problem is there’s way to much political ads, which I’m sick and tired of what’s happening already. Especially these ads are completely bias. Nonstop trump this and trump that, vote Biden vote Biden. Give me a break. If you’re going to run Biden ads every other ad, put trump just as much. Or better yet, no political ads at all, cause I don’t care. Run food ads, clothes, services, whatever just not political propaganda

by Saltythealmond on 2020/09/18 03:24
I use Pandora for only Christmas music and each year it’s a disaster. “My station” just plays random songs that aren’t even related to my Christmas station. I have to use crowd favs which isn’t as tuned to me. On top of that, the app is super buggy. It’ll randomly freeze and stop my music, not register taps, and the ease of use is just awful. I feel like there’s now more ads in pandora now. If I remember it was 1 ad before but now 2 ads play every 2-3 songs. I mean come on Pandora, are you that desperate for money?

Pandora is a music box
by Heatherbug144 on 2020/09/17 22:17
My favorite music streaming service. I have been a dedicated pandora person for what feels like forever. I listen to a wide variety of music and they haven't failed me yet on introducing me to a new artist or band or song that fits with my taste. I pay for the plus for no ads and the ability to listen offline because my cell plan is still by the gig. The offline mode is super handy. I can use it on a wide variety of tech, from Amazon to iPhone, to Google Home to the desktop. It's not limited by what kind of tech you have. I like that a lot. All it needs now is an iPhone widget, hint hint. ;)
Pandora Fan/User
by Andrew Krom 1992 on 2020/09/17 00:40
I’ve been using Pandora to stream all of my music for going on at least 10 years minimum I believe even longer! I have zero complaints About the service the only thing that i could even start to complain about is the Ads, although come on people is steaming free music that plays stuff you enjoy listening to and if you don’t like what’s playing just give it a thumbs down and Pandora remembers everything you don’t like a as well as giving the thumbs up for all The music you do like, and instantly starts playing another song!! I mean What else could you ask for??? Seriously free music you love and the ads are only 30 second long, whoopty doo! Stop complaining that it needs to be better there’s nothing else to change to make it any better Pandora is here now and isn’t going anywhere soon! Thanks to everybody who runs the App and streams ask the music on there as well as the producers them selves the only peeled I see complaining about this service would be the Song Artist because they are losing money keep crying you all are already multi-millionaires you are still okay money is the root of all evil just be happy with what you have and keep doing the job you love which is producing great wonderful music that changes people’s lives!!!!
Can’t get it right AGAIN!!!
by Vipedogg on 2017/12/02 02:59
Once’s again you mess up the app. Now I can’t get it to work. When I turn it on the app then when I closed the screen to let it play in back ground. It turns off the music. Then when I try to put it back on it freezes. I have to turn off the app then turn it back on. This happens every time. Now that I paid for this service it not working. This happen 1 day after the last fix. Plus you can’t see whats playing in the lock screen. Just shows the pandora app is on. GREAT JOBS!!! (Not) (Next day) After I putting a bad review. The sent me a way to fix the problem the very next day. All I can say it now work and I’m happy again with pandora. This time it was a great job!! Just give them a problem and they will fix it. I might have been a little mad about the review. But at the time it was bad day and I wanted was to listen to music it chill with, and it didn’t want to work. I glad that the people at pandora really care about the people who uses their app. Just give a change and see what they can do for you. *****. 5 five rating.
App needs so much work
by Waelwulfan on 2019/03/28 21:41
The service itself is great. All of my complaints are with the app and not Pandora itself. 1. App seems to get shut down in the background after only a few minutes if it’s not playing music. Even if you’re not doing anything else with your phone. So when you open it back up, everything needs to reload and whatever song you were listening to is gone. 2. CarPlay issues. OMG, where to begin? CarPlay with Pandora is a disaster. Keeps going from Now Playing back to the Stations screen. Stations don’t load (blank screen) sometimes, forcing you to use your phone to get started. If you change stations or skip songs, sometimes the Now Playing screen will still show the previous song for a good 10 seconds or more, during which time onscreen controls like Pause will not work. 3. Offline songs are noticeably louder than if they’re streamed. Offline mode also seems hesitant to switch back online despite a strong and solid network connection. 4. Ever since Offline mode was introduced, the streaming cache has been severely reduced. It used to cache 3-4 songs. Now it doesn’t seem to cache the next song until the current one is half way done. If you’re in a spotty area and you skip the current song, you’re out of luck. I would happily trade Offline mode to get back a bigger streaming cache.
Ads, ads, and then more ads
by Combzz on 2017/10/21 15:14
Too many ads of course. I spend 1 minute (two 30 second ads) listening to your ads, ok great. Then a song comes on that I don’t like, press skip, instantly 2 more adds. So now 2 minutes have passed and I’m still stuck with listening to the SAME ads over and over and over again. The ad frequency is way too high compared to any other free radio out there. Plus, the music that does get to play isn’t even what I like to listen to. And a lot of time the music isn’t even tailored to the station. And then there’s the issue where after 8-10 songs, it literally LOOPS!!! It will the start playing the same songs you listened to an hour ago, or where you last listened to Pandora. Pandora is the WORST out there. Compare that to iHeartRadio who has a way better tailored music experience and less ads that are actually relevant to me. On top of that, the only benefits you receive after paying monthly for their premium is just “more skips” and “less ads”. There are definitely way better services out there that when you pay you get “no ads” and “unlimited skips”. Pandora is just a major waste of time, they’re only in it for the money and because of that they’ll eventually die off as someone else overtakes them; unless they radically change their business model and put the user listening experience in the spotlight.
Nothing compared to Apple Music
by Caleb1744 on 2020/02/05 12:11
There are a lot of adds on Pandora and after paying the smaller subscription (something like $5 a month), I found that I was still limited in what I could do. I was not able to make or edit playlists nearly as well as Apple Music if at all (I never figured it out), the amount of likes and dislikes was also limited. There came several times when I noticed an apparent glitch in the system as well. There was a type of song that continued to play on a certain violin station (Daniel D) that sounded almost like a metronome. I pushed dislike. But then, as if I actually pushed “like”, it played another similar song. Before I knew it, I was listening to nothing but that type of music and patiently disliking every last one. Then I ran out of dislikes. I have noticed that a lot of stations are seemingly preset mostly by popular trends. My likes and dislikes don’t have as strong an influence as they should. Basses on these disappointments, I decided to find somewhere else to get my music. I got Apple Music unlimited for $4.99 on school discount. I have unlimited access to anything - unlimited skips, easily editing of playlists, unlimited likes and dislikes, recommended albums to add to playlists, I can skip to the middle of any song. Pandora served its purpose, but Apple Music, while compared side by side with pandora, is much better.
Tricking people into buying the app... disgraceful
by Fixxerboy on 2018/06/13 16:21
I am a long time Pandora listener. Decent streams of all sorts of genres of music but a lot of replay in a short period of time which is bad/good for some so I’m not judging on that. I would happily pay a fair price for their service ($2.99/month). I feel they are greedy and not in touch with the reality of the situation, the fact that the internet is saturated with online music provides many of which are free. But the reason I will never buy service from Pandora is because they purposefully try to trick you almost every time you click on the app by moving the “purchase” button at the precise time the average user goes to click on “not now”. They have spent way to much time and energy trying to trick users into buying their service when a few days of honest assessing of the current competitor market would yield a fair but lower subscription price. This would in turn give them a larger subscription base and in the end more revenue. Please don’t do business with a company that practices borderline unethical business practices, if they are willing to do this everyday in front of our faces what else would they do to keep you locked in as a subscriber? Come on Pandora, is this really the relationship you want with your customers?
I want an improved music service
by Navy Tester on 2017/11/07 15:05
This is Pandora’s last week to prove that it’s the music service for me. I drive a lot between major cities and service drops all the time. Even when i have good service the app locks up and makes me reboot. Lastly, it’s not clear what or how im paying for plus. I guit once because of the ridiculous monthly tap when all i wanted to do was pay for a year and forget about the hassle of remembering to deduct monthly payments. Now, i cant see (on the app) how I’m paying, again. Ill logon to the website and find out if I’ll just quit then and there. Apple music had been sending little treats and Pandora hasn’t been concerned enough to make the app work through my iphone ( so far) and without a pretty rapid service improvement ( i just updated the app) and a means to see how I’m paying for plus from my very secure phone, i will quit and move on. I have to add one more, i was engaged many years ago by a stellar customer service representative. She was so helpful that i nearly stayed on, in spite of the required monthly payments option at the time. When Pandora finally adopted the annual payment option again, I don’t return. But now service is suffering. Please make this right. Thank you very much for reading my novella! 😁
Last update makes pandora insufferable.
by Snorydr on 2020/08/31 05:04
I have been happily using Pandora, commercial free, for years. Everything worked great, I never had to think about it. The last update has caused many many issues. First off, now I have to be on WiFi or in cell coverage to open pandora. No offline stations are accessible unless you are already online. If I am out of cell range I cannot open pandora until I am in cell range or WiFi. I get notices that pandora cannot he signed into, the station cannot he reached, or to change stations. There is no option to change stations or to go offline. When traveling this is incredibly frustrating to have to wait for the next cell coverage zone to open pandora. Why have offline stations downloaded onto my phone if I’m no longer allowed to use them? Also, when I run out of cell coverage, Pandora stops playing so it can tell me, “it looks like you’ve lost your internet connection so we are switching you to an offline station to keep the music playing”... you stopped the music to tell me you aren’t stopping the music. The regular chime that alerts me that pandora is switching to offline mode is adequate and not annoying. Please stop the lengthy diatribe about not stopping the music by stopping the music.
Pandora Plus...has its flaws.
by Courtney4367732 on 2020/02/16 17:39
First of all, with Plus you’re supposed to have the ability to listen to a few offline stations. In theory, it’s supposed to switch to offline mode automatically when you lose cell service or internet access...rarely ever does this happen automatically. Also, of the 4 available offline stations, usually only 1 works. At least a third of the time it will say all stations are unavailable and will play nothing. My second complaint is something that annoys me so much, I’ve been looking into other music services. Even though I pay for ad free and already have Pandora Plus, ads for Pandora Plus pop up constantly! Initially premium ads were coming up, and that’s annoying enough, but then to keep pushing Plus on me when I ALREADY HAVE IT is just too much for me. UPDATE... 2 years later still having the same issue with the switching between offline and online modes. Always messing up or making me do it manually (which is a massive pain due to an update a while back.) makes it very difficult to access this option while driving. Also still says stations are “unavailable” when offline even though I’ve downloaded them. Ugh.
It could be better
by Margaret Kellyyy on 2019/03/10 15:15
I have the premium subscription and overall I’m pleased with the easy to use platform, music selection and the quality of sound. However I do agree with other users that I wish Pandora would give users (especially those that pay for premium) the ability to edit/sort your stations and playlists on your home page. Yes you can filter for your stations or downloaded playlists but I’m pretty particular and I like things to be alphabetical... or the order in which my brain thinks is most logical. But the thing that bothers me THE MOST is the fact that when you pause a song, and lock your phone and walk away for a moment or pause to have a conversation with a coworker and you go back to the app, it acts like you just opened the app and the song you were listening to you, at your favorite part, starts over. What’s with that?! I understand that music apps may be different but the free game apps I have don’t wipe out my progress if I pause the game and “minimize” the app.... why can’t the app I pay monthly for do the same?!?
Love you, but there’s one problem
by BeccaFulton on 2018/07/18 13:45
I've been using Pandora for years and I love it. Yeah, they have some bugs, but a lot of apps do. Some of my now favorite bands I found from pandora. I pay $5/month for the premium version and it’s really worth it. My only complaint, which is more of a suggestion or request, I wish I could choose which stations I had offline. I have stations that I’ve listened to so freaking much, that’s how the app decides which stations are available offline, but I don’t want those for offline use. The fact that the more you listen to offline ones, the more hours you accumulate, solidifying their spots on the list. I frequently find myself with little to no data connection, so I really appreciate and rely on the offline mode. I tried deleting those stations and re-loading my offline stations, but alas it did not fix the problem... it honestly just made it worse. I deleted all of my stations that hadn’t been listened to this year and I’m realizing that to get the stations I want offline, I’ll have to delete all of them but the ones I want. So if you could choose the stations to download, that’d be dope and then I’d definitely give you a well-deserved 5 stars 😬
It Used to Work
by C Dew on 2017/11/02 02:23
Pandora used to be my go-to music app. I was introduced to artists I never knew existed because they were similar to what I already enjoyed. When I got a new car with SYNC3, Pandora was rock solid. I could move from house to car and back without missing a beat. But several months ago, Pandora started having problems. When I get in the car, especially when using CarPlay, there’s no better than a 10% chance that I’ll be able to open Pandora, select a playlist and actually hear music. Most of the time it will give me a list of my playlists, but selecting a playlist just snaps back and does nothing no matter how many times I select it. Sometimes the app on the phone tells me “Poor network connection”, or its stuck asking me to start a free trial, or there’s a “Skip to Pandora” button. But you know what’s not there? Music! My home wi-fi is unchanged. There are no new cell towers. I have at least three bars. There is no reason why I can’t do today what I did for months without any problems, and that’s listen to music. So I have deleted the app and reinstalled twice. If I have to delete again, there won’t be another installation. And that’s sad because an app that once brought me so much good music and introduced me to so many artists, now brings only daily frustration.
Thumbprint Overrides Selection
by MrRTB on 2019/12/10 16:21
When I choose an Artist to listen to, I expect the majority of the music for that channel to be the Artist I selected, not just a few. It seems the more thumbprints your choose, the less of the actual artist you want to listen to actually get played. Recently is seems to be maybe 10-15% of the actual artist/musicians channel that is chosen actually gets their music. The only way I can see to fix the issue is to “Un-THUMBPRINT” the individual channels other artist/musician thumbprints to be able to listen to that channels music. The thumbprints should only be used as a guide for using the thumbprint channel itself, or to fill in an occasional selection. There should be no more than 25% of the thumbprint selections on an an individual / group artist / musicians channel except for thumbprint or various selection channels. Perhaps if people prefer thumbprints over the actual artist /musician selected, a setup panel for individuals to choose how much thumbprint they want to listen to Vs actual artist / musician channel would be appropriate. Very frustrated as a main source of listening and won’t subscribe because they (PANDORA) feels they know better about what I want to listen to than I do.
No radio zone.
by buddhaman79 on 2019/03/22 19:27
I put off moving from Fl to the backwoods of western North Carolina mostly because there was only talk radio and two country stations (I don’t like country at all) but as fait has it, I moved up here anyway in ‘07 & lived in misery until my first smart phone & finding the Pandora app in around ‘14 & found again what living was again. Than in mid 2017 I was working at a house in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end. I got no service out there & the free Pandora didn’t work out of coarse too. At this point I decided to brake down & get Pandora premium for off line playlist. I have had Pandora premium since that time and have never looked back. I love it, it is my personal radio station. Like I own my own station & can play whatever the hell I want. A few things pop up (can’t play due to licensing) but it’s rare enough & it usually doesn’t last long. Dollar for $ it is the best app I have for sure. I literally have it on 12 plus hours a day. From Hannibal Burris to Bradley’s Postmodern jukebox & 99.9% of anything in between.
It’s alright...
by FreudTheFish on 2019/08/23 19:32
It’s a good music app and all but it has its flaws. For starters I’m tired of when it switches to autoplay from my playlist it’s usually the same songs in the same order...that’s not auto play. Switch it up man. I hate how when I am in auto play and I stop the app, not close it but stop it, and I go back into it it starts from my most recently played playlist....WHY??? I suggest making it easier to delete playlists or songs in the playlist without having to go into my profile and search around for eternity. Every playlist should have a delete option and every song in that playlist should have a swipe left to remove from playlist option. Another thing is I swear when I do delete a playlist or a song in the playlist it’s gone from my library....every song in that playlist will just poof....disappear. Finally when it comes to making a playlist, give the name it option like you do but give a plus icon so you can browse every song in your library with an add option instead of having to click every song individually, then the three dots, then add to playlist, then which playlist you want it in....simplify man come on!
Organization
by Go2camp on 2019/02/02 20:11
Hi. First if all, I would like to thank you for reading this request. Now I will get on with it. I really like Pandora, but I think that you should make it more organized. I think that the favorites should be on the top of all of the stations. I also think that to make it more attractive, the blue bar at the bottom of the screen should be either white, black, or non-existent. It’s just not attractive, and all of my friends and family agree. I’m sorry if you feel as if I am taking over your business, but that is just the way that the people want it. Only the album covers should be full with color. Everything else, I feel, should be black and white and grey. More modern = more attractive. Sorry, but it’s just what it is. My friends and I would also like if everytime we opened the app, music would not automatically start playing. I hope that you can find the time to make the changes in the next two weeks, or I will definitely be compelled to delete the app. I really do think that this app is a very good app and would like to give you props for making it. But the main point of this review is to tell you that the visual appearance of this app is just not attractive. Thank you for reading. Goodbye.
Done with this app
by Arllc3 on 2018/03/25 02:21
This app seems to have a new unfixable bug where when I connect to my car (wired or Bluetoot) the skip doesn’t work. I press once on my wheel to skip, and pandora app skips 1-3 songs, effectively using all my free skips. Wrote to help desk telling them I tried resetting, reinstalling, updating the app, and restarting my phone. And what do they say? They completely ignore what I wrote and tell me to do exactly what I just said I did. It’s like they didn’t even read what I wrote. They literally advised me to do everything I said I did. Now, with all the overwhelming amount of ads, it’s impossible to navigate the app without accidentally clicking into the upgrade button. And I accidentally bought the upgrade because the ads are so well timed. It shows one ad and you go to hit close ad or whatever it is, and immediately the pandora upgrade ad appears with the purchase button in exactly the place as the close ad button so you hit the purchase botton. I apparently hit tbat thinking I hit the close ad button and then I went to open my phone with my finger print not realizing it and bought the premium. Immediately cancels my subscription but the damage was done. I will be deleting this app after the month is over. Really disgusting how you trick your customers.
Why I love Pandora.
by Pastel Peach🌸 on 2019/11/30 20:17
Omg, Pandora is simply the BEST!! It’s a place where you can find all of you favorite songs for free! I LOVE MUSIC! And if you love music as much as I do, then your going to LOVE Pandora. I love it so much that I listen to it in bed! 😂 But... the only thing I wish was different about Pandora, is that I really wish there were more songs that have a clean version. Sometimes, when I start listening to a song, I search for a clean version of it just in case. Let’s say I wanted to listen to “On My Way” By Alan Walker & Sabrina Carpenter, then I would normally search for a clean version of that song. But sometimes, I click the normal version of it because I would think it didn’t have bad words in it due to the fact that it didn’t have a clean version. But then... I get startled by the cuss words. And then, just because of that, I tend to dislike the song. So whenever I hear that song on a different station, I will most likely 👎🏼 the song. I love you Pandora, but please please work on those clean versions!! I really enjoy your music, I can’t wait to see what you do next! To: Pandora From: Me ❤️
Not a good algorhythm
by MMoore49 on 2018/10/27 11:33
The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
Rather lacking...
by Baileyrhb on 2020/04/10 04:12
I do love Pandora, and I use this app all the time, but certain features never work on my phone; for example, the friend search, and Facebook linking. I tried those on my husband’s Samsung phone, and they work, but not on my iPhone for some reason. Deleting and reinstalling doesn’t help. I also think it’s rather lacking in features. There are some things that I would love to see in this app, and this is just my opinion of course, but I think Pandora should expand the social aspect of their service. The current friend feature is kind of pointless. I always thought it would be cool to be able to have more interactive features with friends’ profiles, like commenting, sharing, liking, etc. Having the option to display what you’re listening to at the moment, either publicly or just with friends, would be nice; I know there used to be a similar feature but it’s gone now, and it only showed the last station listened to, not real-time listening. (Of course this should be optional. Everything should be optional.) Another thing I would like to see would be some kind of listening statistics, more than just the vague ranking of what you’ve been listening to most recently.
Downloaded songs not really accessible
by Kitkatbiggie on 2018/01/24 06:22
I like pandora but recently when I select shuffle my thumbs up it repeats the same several songs (songs I have given the thumbs up) along with new songs in the same vein. The new stuff is ok but why keep repeating the one or two songs over and over from my list of 302 songs. My other issue is I live in an area where reception comes and goes between my commute to and from work...so I downloaded quite a few songs. I wish I could select offline mode but I can’t. So I will be rocking out and when the song comes to an end I have sudden total silence while it connects “buffers” for the next 10 minutes. Instead of just going into off line mode and playing my downloads. So my question are they truly downloaded? Why else would the app keep searching “buffering”. If you live in a non rural area I am sure you don’t even notice but us Northern California coastal towns do! I end up switching to google play. As I want to rock out before I have a hectic day working at the local hospital or going home to take care of my three awesome teenagers and hubby!
Best thing
by JungKart on 2019/09/30 00:23
Ive had Pandora for YEARS. I finally upgraded to a paid account instead of free. I wish i had done this years ago. I have always loved pandora and have found so many of my favorite bands through Pandora. Now i used Pandora as a “therapy” or “medication”. Im a combat vet with serious PTSD and until very recently have been able to go without any pills due mostly to Pandora. I know that sounds silly but I legitimately medicate with music (specifically Pandora). I use special stations ive set up when i paint as well for inspiration and to keep the right mood or frame of mind or energy for the style im working on that night. Pandora has been and is currently a godsend for me and theres a decent chance I wouldn’t be here without it. Im a lifetime customer and incredibly appreciative of all the free years i accessed it as well. I hope someone up top reads this review because i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have no idea you’ve done in my life. Tearing up as I write this lol...THANK YOU.
Has something changed with the Pandora app???
by Musically Lost on 2018/10/13 06:36
Ive had Pandora for several years now, it is the free version. I have not been able to listen to my Pandora for over a week now. When I click into one of my stations, it doesn’t play. I can’t even click play, rewind, or fast forward. The icons are there but not highlighted. I have logged in and out. I’ve turned on/off my phone and I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app. I’ve done this multiple times and still nothing. When I exit out of the station to browse for other options, it says buffering...your station will be right back. I logged out of my account and had my son log into his account on my phone and his account works on my phone. I contacted the help support explaining all of this, and they sent me the troubleshooting information from their website after I explained I’ve already done all of the troubleshooting. The email they sent me said, if I was still having trouble, to respond to their email, which I did , and I still have not heard anything back. Horrible, horrible customer support.
Pandora Premium may not be so great after all
by RoA(one and only) on 2017/10/10 12:22
My headphone controls are not working with Pandora anymore over the last few days and Pandora no longer comes up on my lock screen. This is absolutely irritating. Who do I need to complain to in order to get this fixed?! Pandora is great. I always thought so. And I figured, it would be fantastic to upgrade to Pandora Premium (PP). I don't regret my decision, but it (PP) concentrates on playing thumbs up songs. Now that might sound great, but it 1) disallows the listener from gaining new music experiences from different artists, genres, and albums. 2) soon enough, I will grow tired of these favorite tracks. 3) you cannot undo a thumbs up after it is done. So if you thumbs up a song, you can neither unhighlight thumbs up nor hit "thumbs down" (although that may be extreme). What I want from Pandora Premium- and was available in the free version - is the flexibility of liking, unliking, disliking song tracks, and exploring new artists, genres, albums, and tracks. Still Pandora is great and receives 4 stars, but Pandora Premium, itself, is probably worth 2. It's not bad... just disappointing.
Slimy sales tricks. Classless.
by alexk1682 on 2017/09/11 14:00
Barely able to navigate app due to the overwhelming number of adds that they jam down your throat. Back to back Pop ups that require you to close, lazily slopped together commercials, and if that wasn't enough the variety of songs is pitiful. After the first 7 songs it just goes to a loop where I hear the same familiar songs day in and out. For how little this app provides it's not worth sitting through horrible repetitive commercials and closing swarms of pop up ads. Goodbye pandora. (3 month later-update) If I had the money to buy out pandora I would. Upon owning the company I would then run it straight into the ground and erase its existence from the planet. How you have managed to create a music listening experience that is so horrible is beyond me. Your listeners should love you not hate you. Annoying users with ads until they cave and purchase premium is a slimy business tactic. I have more respect for telemarketers. I came back to use the app to see if anything changed and I can't even open the app. I have a top of the line phone that can run everything but your app. It's almost 2018 and you can't get your app to function on a modern phone. There has been 3 updates and nothing has been resolved. DISGUSTED!
Amazing! And I have a lot of proof for it too!
by Bella6789012345 on 2018/07/06 17:40
I love this app! It’s great for listening to your favorite music! It doesn’t turn off in other apps, on your home screen, and when you turn your device off. I’ve used some other music apps and this one is by far my favorite, in fact I’m listening right now. However, they do send a lot of emails. I’m okay with them but if you don’t like them you can easily unsubscribe from the emails and still listen to the music. Also there are a ton of different kinds of music and whatever you like is probably there. They also personalize it to you and it’s great. If you don’t like their suggestions you can always search up something you would like to listen to and you’ll probably find it. I am constantly on there listening to music and thumbing up all of the songs. You can thumbs up or thumbs down songs depending on how you like them. You can listen to all of your radios together or you can listen to your favorite songs on the thumbprint radio.
Love, Music and Pandora
by cereal8u on 2017/10/25 12:57
For people who truly love music Pandora is a godsend. There is a joy that That comes from a good surprise. With Pandora you don’t have to set up a playlist, so you’re never sure what song my play next. Pandora uses a song or band that you chose to start your station. They play music that is similar to your original chose. Pandora then uses algorithms that track your likes and dislikes of the songs that you have listened to in order to create a custom playlist for every user. I pay for the service that removes the ads and allows me to skip any songs or repeat any songs that I want.I have had Pandora for years and enjoy it so much that I stopped to write this small review. If you love music I think that you will also love Pandora. I hope that you give it a try. Music brings so much happiness to life, and with Pandora your music can always be with you. I don’t have to download hundreds of songs I can just listen to my music every were I go. I love music. I love Pandora.
Unfair! I’m outraged!!
by Stephymtz01 on 2018/08/24 18:14
I am taking my business elsewhere. They don’t have a number you can call if you have a quick question and they drag to respond. I sighed up for the premium family plan and I was actually kinda excited about it. I had it for 3 months and had my sister and parents on it. Just two days ago they didn’t take the money and pandora asked me if I wanted to subscribe to one of their plans. I thought there must have been a problem with the card I have since it’s been acting up. I went to where you sign up to the pandora family plan and it asked for my log in information. I logged in and it said “Unable to subscribe to Pandora Premium Family You must be 21 years or older to start a Pandora Premium Family plan. To join, have someone else in your family who is 21 years or older start a Pandora Premium Family plan, then they can add you to the plan as a family member. Alternatively, see other subscription plans” I am outraged and feel this is unjust if that was their policy in the first place why didn’t they just deny it in the first place. I don’t want anything for free I have been paying and before that I had the regular premium. All I want is to be able to enjoy the family premium plan once again.
Why I love this app
by Mekjgyujb on 2018/01/01 00:53
I love this app because I can have songs when I have my phone off so it will be able to not die when I don’t have a charger and I can play other games while I’m listening to music music which is amazing I love your guises game will app Pandora is the best app I’ve used and I hope everyone gave you five or four stars not three are down I don’t think you guys deserve 32 or a one star I think you guys deserve five or for at least four but I say five I like how you guys can do an interview I likeI like how you can change times and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can just search Music or little search I like how you can change sounds and you want to have different thumbs up thumbs down I don’t really like the ad but that’s OK you don’t really have ads and I like how you can search Music or a little search you know I mean and I really like it I’m glad I can tell you guys this
Great Disappointment
by Nixienymph on 2018/04/14 17:05
I was really loving pandora. Playing music I knew and finding new music to love and then after a few weeks it started crashing. I followed the support directions: stop and close app, reopen: same error. Turn off device, turn back on: same error. Delete app, download app: same error. The support team the put a “trace” on my account supposedly. No error for 2 was. Then the error started back up, so I went back through the above steps, as advised by support who had a “trace” on my account. None of the fixes worked, and the “trace” apparently means nothing. Support then advised that I need to delete the app, and connect to my computer to sync my iTunes, then download the app...blah blah blah blah....Guess what? None of that crap worked either!!! Huge waste of time and effort! I fail to understand how iTunes is at fault, but pandora surely isn’t going to solve any problems, let alone take responsibility and fix their app. No no no...instead they are busy creating ridiculous processes that fix nothing, and useless updates. Great job pandora! Some may pay for the service, and perhaps that prevents the crashing, but there are other apps that provide much more, that are stable, and don’t play games through their support team.
It’s the little things
by vnfectvous on 2018/09/15 01:17
I’ve been a long time user of pandora.. since middle school days which is more than 10 years, and I love every aspect of it, especially as a premium user.. but it’s getting to the point where it’s becoming repetitive.. for the longest Pandora would introduce me to new music based off of songs or artists I liked and that’s how I discovered new music.. but now if I try to find new music based off a song it just adds the music I’ve thumbed on other stations so I have to dislike a majority of the songs I liked on another station to make the station I’m listening to have similar music.. I’m all about listening to repeated songs.. but after awhile it gets tiring Another issue I’ve been having lately is the clearing of my offline stations/songs/ artist/ ect every time I’m logged out of the app which has been happening recently. Idky, and I don’t realize it until I’m at a point that I need to go offline. It’s the little things that really effect my feelings on this app. I would love to keep using it and being a premium member.. but if I wanna just repeat songs I’ll use and MP3 player
Great App! But..
by ARTIECamJT on 2019/09/04 16:41
Hi! I’ve been using Pandora for awhile. But not like 4 years or something 😅. I just want to say I love this app! I love how you can search the song you want! I honestly don’t have a problem with seeing an add when you search for the song. I kinda like the way you made the add it’s very creative to :). Anyway the reason I’m typing this is because recently the app has been having bugs like this morning ((on this date)) when I search the song I want and then after watching the add it looks like I’m gonna listen to the song but then it stops and says “Something went wrong”. And so I’m like oh ok, I’ll just try it again. Then after the add it says the same thing! I was a little irritated about it.. so I just wanted to tell you guys that there are some bugs going on in the app. Oh and another thing I wanted to say is that sometimes there’s a little to much adds when in on a radio I like. Anyway! So far I LOVE this app! It’s improved so much! ☺️ Respond if you can!
Great app
by Zachpool on 2018/06/05 05:33
Best music streaming app I’ve used. The low monthly payments are great for ad free listening, offline listening, and unlimited skips. In addition to the low (optional) monthly fee your playlist is fully customizable to your music taste. If you hear a song to many times you can simply press I’m bored of this song and it won’t play for a while. You can add many different genres to one playlist or you can add different bands of the same genre to your playlist. The app selects music related to the bands, songs, or genres you’ve selected. You can also mix it up and shuffle all your playlists together! Great app will use it forever thank you Pandora! The only thing I would like to see is macros or hotkeys with the volume button so I can skip and thumb up songs without stopping what I’m doing and simply use volume controls via side of the phone or volume control buttons on my headphones.(not sure if this is already a thing from what I’ve seen it is not yet a thing)
Not easy to use
by Ocaoivorew on 2019/11/19 19:40
I love the music I’ve found, BUT they say one is a single artist Chanel or station or whatever and the next with the same name plays that artist and others . But how can you see the difference . I’m basically using two stations because I can’t figure out how to navigate or try new things. I have premium and I think I should have a much better experience than this. Maybe an online how to use the thing and separate it Into free, plus and premium . Meanwhile I have two stations that play a variety around that artist and I like that. The other complaint I have is some of the artist choose that artists music from the worst they ever did, I’ll use Stevie Ray Vaughn for an example. The “ station” was playing all from an early album almost anyone who knows his music would cringe. Many of those same songs are on live albums and are so much better. To get them I had to search . Then it played one live album over and over. Very disappointing. Not all of his live songs are on one album! Gets worse . Got premium family. All this great stuff you can supposedly do, but do they say how? No. So you really don’t have any thing you didn’t have free
The Best Playlists
by steve.edwards on 2019/10/14 19:16
I’ve been using Pandora since 2003 or 2004 and it has introduced me to so many new artists that I have proudly shared with friends through the years. The patchwork of music that Pandora plays is still, I think, unparalleled when comparing the other big music streaming services. Being able to share new music with a friend and hear them say “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this before!” is all thanks to Pandora and has fed that hipster pride that many who enjoy music feel when they’ve “heard something that you’ve probably never heard of”. If I’m being honest I got to hear it only because Pandora heard it first and added it to whatever station I was listening to—Thank you Pandora for bringing so much great music to myself and those close to me AND allowing me to help cultivate stations throughout the years by giving a thumbs up, thumbs down, and to add variety to a station. PS: Reading the Artist bio’s when you get the chance can be really interesting!

Pandora filled my summer with exquisite songs and I found a lot of new music to listen to. I enjoyed the pleasant slow walks with quick steps in between running to soft calming tunes. I enjoyed the late night parties to Spanish music. I enjoyed the summer mornings spent playing basketball with my ball dribbling to the beat of drums. I could not put it into better words, but I felt like I was in love every single day in July and August. I cannot believe music has come this far. I cannot even trace where I found all such great music. The world definitely does not deserve Pandora because it gives more than we give back. I don't even have a favorite song. Because of all the great music Pandora has to offer. Rather I have a myriad of favorite songs ranging from R&B, pop, classic rock and romantic music. With artists like American Authors, OneRepublic, Pink, Daft Punk, and Taylor Swift. And favorite movie soundtracks like Paper Towns, Love Story, and Valerian. Love, yours truly, and number one listener: Veronica Andrade
Newest format is a let down.

I have been a paid customer for three years and have used Pandora for long since I chose to pay for it. The ads never bothered me even as the frequency increased, but I paid for the service because I liked the random music sequence. A few years ago I’d select or make a radio station and then keep editing it. A song might become too repetitive so I’d just mark “I’m tired of this song” and my station would start playing different music. I was able to get my stations tailor made to my liking through this setting, but since the beginning to mid 2017 I had this feature disappear on my iPhone. No problem, it was a annoying, but I’d just use my iPad. Yet, it seems that I the past few updates the format has been changed on the iPad too to get rid of this feature. In one of those updates some of my channels were deleted and I can’t find them on the browse genre option anymore. Also, without the option to place a track on temporary hold, I have to down thumb it, and the the song is lost forever on the station. Please bring back my old stations and the option to listen to random music while placing liked but overplayed songs on hold.
Pandora Harassment
by andrewsappreview on 2019/05/06 21:21
I’m only giving Pandora one star based on their usability and not the streaming quality itself. Using the app is generally good and easy. When you open the app while listening and attempt to change something you must wait every time and tell Pandora you do not wish to purchase Pandora Premium for $4.99. Asking me every time I want to change my station, look at your app, or give feedback to a song I’m prompted to deny paying for their service. How asinine it that? If a guy ask gets turned down once and keeps asking a girl out it becomes harassment. Essential Pandora is harassing its users into paying for its service when I clearly do not and will not do so. Sooo IF anyone reads this, why don’t you ask for a raise every time you do your job and see how well that works. If it works, keep the service. If it doesn’t, suggest changing this to maybe once a day and earn a raise with better customer support/ friendlier interface. Or do nothing because you don’t care and I’ll leave my review. If you change this I’ll also change my review to 5 stars because it is a good service, you’re just being obnoxious for no reason other than being obnoxious. Best of luck.
Life expression through harmony of time an place of the poetically timed !

Life sounding exceptionally thought out melodies brought by all the unique personality perspective which derived to what ever one choses which is such a lovely way to share I’m so satisfied with all the sharing music applications because one has a opportunity to receive such a gift for free if one hasn’t the means to pay or if you chose one can pay an have many more options which in this time of existence we need all the opportunities of fun, inspiration , vast energies that we may have have noticed if we didn’t have the applications which is what Pandora allows an wants to share which is so so generous in our time of a is a very isolated period in terms of sharing with each other for which is at times get dreary though this application an others give us opportunities of a library of choice for free an that’s a blessing Me . Thank you Pandora so fortunate to be able to pay its well worth it !!!
I love this app but something just happened...
by Glinderella on 2017/09/07 00:52
Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
No longer in Denial
by "aine" on 2019/09/26 20:00
I’ve been in denial over the functionality of Pandora for over a year now. After years of free listening with manageable ads I found that the number, frequency and length of ads went up exponentially about a year ago. So I decided to upgrade. Commercial free and offline listening were big selling points to me. However it’s not really commercial free is it? I would have to play an ad to replay a song and sometimes even to skip. And don’t get me started on the offline listening feature. I am a commuter and am often on the subways and I find that not only do I have to have turned on the offline listening option before I’m underground but I only have a selection of maybe a dozen songs in that playlist. If I don’t switch to the offline listening option before I’m out of range there is no offline listening for me at all. Instead I watch as Pandora skips and buffers through dozens of songs as I listen to the complaints of commuters around me. I can’t honestly note a praiseworthy aspect of Pandora right now and since I’ve canceled my subscription I have such a sense of alleviation. I am no longer wasting money or energy over an app that doesn’t work.
What happened
by ThePowerful on 2019/02/01 01:29
I used to love Pandora because it was free music that played all my favorite music and had a wide variety of music from movie soundtracks to music you hear everyday on the radio. But this past year or so Pandora hasn’t been the best. For one it used to have a problem where it would just shut off for no reason at all but that problem seemed to get fix. But now there’s a problem with loading the music, sometimes radio stations won’t load and you’ll either have to play with a couple of other stations and then go back to that one. I understand the concept of liking songs and hearing similar songs like that one you liked but they continuously play the same liked songs all the time. I realized that you’re better off not liking or disliking a song if you want to hear different music. The last thing is the ads. I know that’s how you make your money and a lot of us can’t afford to pay for premium but it’s annoying when you can only listen to 2 songs before an ad pops up. I wish y’all would fix some of these problems

I really enjoy your Pandora, I listen to it all the time and it was the commercial’s that was worth while to me as well. I am a out side , blanket person pushing my shopping cart around helping others who are wealthy. I find they are unique but are in need of survival techniques and staying healthy on the out side. Pandora relaxes me and I can swim 🏊‍♂️ in the dirty bay water, ice cold water in the winter and jog miles down the coast to warm up. I live in a tent and wear swimming trunks and stay on the beach just like the wealthy do except I am closer to the water than they are and I don’t pay anything to live in my small homeless tent. Pandora gets me in the mood to move my tent down the beach when I get a three day notice to vacate my current spot. Pandora helps me look for food in back of dumpsters behind grocery stores. ( dumpster diving) so if you want, keep giving me Pandora and I will keep listening and have a marry Christmas and a great new year. Joe Swimmer 🏊🏼 in the dirty bay water
Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT!
by Beccajean89 on 2019/05/13 14:31
I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
Needs work
by #worldofcolor on 2020/04/27 00:00
I was just listening to music, and I had explicit turned off and blocked, so music like that shouldn’t play, or they should at least have the swearing blocked. But I was just listening and one of the songs dropped the f bomb twice! This is unacceptable! I don’t swear and purposely turned that off! The app always stops playing at random times as well. I’ll hve turned it on, it will play two or three songs, but then it will suddenly stop playing, and there is nothing I can do but wait an hour or more before it plays anything, and then the exact same thing happens. It happens on my radio stations, and my playlists, and it’s really, really annoying. Overall, the app is great. There are most of the songs I want to listen to all there for when I want them, but there are still things that I wish I could change. I’m not sure if it’s just my device, or something going on with the app, but other than those two things I have no problem and would totally recommend pandora.
Meh
by Sparky3860 on 2018/11/16 11:26
I listen to pandora pretty much everyday. For the most part I like it. Some of the things that drive me insane, though... some days, when I pause the music, doesn’t matter how long, when I push play i have to reload. I get really sick of the adds all of the time wanting me to upgrade. I get it, you want some money. I totally understand this. But asking me to upgrade for, what is it, less than five dollars a month 600 times in one day isn’t going to make my budget magically change to where I fee comfortable adding five dollars a month to it. Not quite a top priority right now with my bills. And why does the app crash in the middle of a song quite often on some days? I’d like to be able to search for an artist or a song by that artist and at least have that particular song be the first song I hear. Instead I get music that’s I may also like because of my search history. Well, I think hays enough complaining. Other than some of that stuff, like I said, I listen to Pandora pretty much everyday. I like it better than some of the other options out there.
My go to! But....
by TorresDotRealtor on 2019/11/01 00:51
I’ve had Pandora for a very long time and i enjoy how it knows me so well after a decade of listening. There are a few things i would add, such as a driving mode where touch controls are bigger and more pronounced. The upgrade pop up is freakin annoying, but you gotta do what you gotta do, i do suggest maybe a delay when it pops up, because it appears as soon as you wake up your phone and ive hit that banner a million and one times so far when i try to change a station or song. As for the biggest issue right now is pandora when apple maps is open. It completely messes up voice turn by turn and you only get audio prompts which defeats the purpose of eyes on the road. No matter what settings i change in Pandora or maps, no voice turn by turn possible when playing a song. This doesn't happen with any other music app...just saying. Overall great music service and ill update the review as soon as these issue get fixed....running on iPhoneSE....i need to upgrade, i know, but youuu have the money? Exactly, so shut up. Lol jk Love you 😍
Used to be awesome but then...

I've been using Pandora for a couple years now I think. But after an update probably 6-8 months ago, Pandora no longer works with a USB cord - on players, in my car, nothing. This is really annoying because the USB allowed me to control Pandora through the radio/remote/device it was connected to and now I have to use an AUX cord. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and done everything I can think of to no avail. The Pandora Premium pop up is really annoying - shoving it in my face isn't going to make me buy it. Also, why, if I pause Pandora for more than ~15 minutes, does it "refresh" and start playing a new song?! On the app and site it does this. I don't want to pause it for long periods during songs I like because I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to the rest of it! And your ads are WAY louder than the music, which is REALLY OBNOXIOUS because I'll be jamming out and suddenly I'm blasted with a commercial (I'm already hard of hearing, you don't need to make it worse, kay thanks) Fix these issues and you'll be golden 👌🏼
Terrible app!
by Ashley5330 on 2019/07/30 17:36
I really like Pandora, so I decided to get the premium version. 1. Unfortunately, one of my biggest issues is that the songs stop playing randomly unless I stay in the app with my phone on the whole time. This can get really annoying when you have to keep going back into the app to resume the song. 2. When I put the app in offline mode there are still lots of problems. I’ll be listening to my music while I’m doing something like hw and then it will start playing two songs at once. I can only pause one song and the other one just keeps playing. So, I have to go back in to close the app and wait a few minutes to reopen it and restart my playlist. 3. When I want to add new songs to a playlist i go to turn off offline mode, but then everything freezes! I can’t scroll, edit, or turn offline mode back on. I know that all of these have little fixes but it is such a pain to stop what you’re doing to fix these. Listening to music is supposed to be enjoyable and this just ruins it. I suggest to anyone wanting to get premium not too. I’d take the ads over this any day.
