System bug
by A.mix on 2022/05/25 12:38
A song i “thumbs downed” keeps showing up on my playlist. 😤 maybe a bug in the system or then again, probably a punishment for not using the paid subscription i guess.

5 Star because of the algorithm, but some bugs
by anorris7 on 2022/05/25 11:53
Listen, if you want a music app that is clairvoyant, this is the one. Their recommendation engine is leaps and bounds above Spotify IMO. However, there are some really annoying things. Enough that I often consider dropping the service: 1. Pandora is owned by Sirius. They send me constant emails and mailed promotional offers. My dudes, why on Earth (or in orbit) would I ever buy your commercial-laden hardware required, new subscription required, pre-programmed, 1950s approach to music?? Please stop. 2. For music you've downloaded, you would think it would play when you have no internet connection, right? Well, you have to go into airplane mode otherwise it tries, synchronously I presume, to provide listening data back to the mother ship before playing your tracks. Developers take note: this should be an asynchronous call so the music plays on command yet you still get your listening metrics. 3. The iPhone app crashes pretty often. It's usually after I start listening and it plays like 2 minutes of the first song... just enough for me to get drenched into the shower... and then it crashes. You really need debug logs going back to the mother ship. Again, developers take note. But, the algorithm. Get outta here. It's ridiculously good. So i stick with it.... For now.

I pay for the monthly subscription. That should guarantee me downloaded music. 1 song is not meeting my needs.
😒
by 85boop on 2022/05/25 11:07
I used to love pandora but now not so much! Every time I pause my music or close it out when I return to listen the screen is frozen, the time of the sound is running like it’s playing but I can’t hear anything or the screen is blank. Ps I just literally updated it right before I wrote this review.

Why out songs with bad words in them on pandora?
by rhendiebe on 2022/05/25 00:14
Hi, I am just here to ask, why put songs with bad words in them on pandora? You should get rid of those songs. Just here to let you know that sometimes kids listen to music on here and songs they love have bad words in them. If you are not going rot take away those songs, then at least put kids bop songs on here of the same song but just a different version that has no bad words in it. If grown ups are listening to it them just make them answer a simple question that says: please tell us, are you a child or an adult? It will remove all the songs with bad words in them if they person replied that they were a kid. Please fix this very bad mistake. Thank you for your time.
Just one thing

Love Pandora! It’s as if it’s in my head. I listen for hours and no song is played twice. And everyone is familiar and singable or danceable. I’ve had Pandora since the first year it started. Never disappointed. Right now I’m in bumper to bumper traffic chillin and singing my heart out. Having a ball instead of stress.
The BEST
by The Dapper Scoundrel on 2022/05/24 19:07
Honestly feel like the algorithm generates the best playlists compared to any other music streaming app. I’ve been using pandora since 2007 and everyone suggests other streaming apps but Pandora’s music selection is by far the best after comparing. Im a barber and I run a genre/artist all day long and all my clients ask which app I use. Every client is surprised by how good the algorithm for song selection is! I’m never switching. Staying loyal till the end! Thanks Pandora for making me a “DJ” lol and having my clients vibe all day!

The latest version launches itself and will not close. Tried logging out then using the swipe up to terminate the process but it just relaunches to the login screen. The only way to shut off the app is the reboot the iPhone. Very annoying.

by bloxhirl on 2022/05/24 01:45
Good app for sure! But I’ve recently switched to Spotify and I can tell a difference. Pandora has an ad every two songs and it’s annoying. Whenever you try to play a song it pulls up the membership button where you have to press the X like 7 times to close it out. It’s really glitchy especially when u try to play a song and it pulls up the watch an ad and you have to spam the button then it brings up two ads. On Spotify you don’t have to listen to an ad to start listening to a song. Good app really but I’m lovin Spotify

you guys can add the feature to add a search bar in our song likes please! T_T i love pandora & it’s what i use more than spotify cuz i’m too lazy to search/discover for music & i don’t wanna just listen to one artist/genre. so i got like 100 stations of different artists of diff genres and just shuffle all the stations together (a feature that i LOVE)- but! they play the same songs over and over again so i keep disliking em but i want to make sure that i at least liked one for more opportunities of other songs playing
Way too many ads
by josrodortol on 2022/05/23 23:34
Of course I totally understand why they have ads and since I’m not willing to pay a monthly charge nothing could be more fair than having to listen to ads. Yes I get it! However the amount of ads on Pandora is just unacceptable! No other stream platform plays more ads than Pandora. I have to listen to two 30sec ads, then if I don’t like the next song and want to skip it, guess what happens!!! Another ad! It is ad after ad, non stop. And this is simply too much to handle. Goodbye Pandora
Pandora
by MartinQ.Blank on 2022/05/23 23:08
Used Pandora for years- it’s always been good. Now that they allow you to play repeat on your favorite songs, and choose songs and/or albums to listen to on the spot, they’ve gotten better. I like Pandora because they will play songs that were not radio hits by the artists, and play similar artists- I’ve been exposed to a lot more music that way. My only complaints are that they will cycle in only a portion of the artists on my playlist, and then after a while, they will slowly cycle in some of the other artists from my playlist- I’d rather have them all shuffled in equally. The only other complaint is that they do not accept pre-paid cards, or I’d be gladly paying the monthly fee they advertise.

Can’t search to listen to a specific song without paying for a monthly premium?!
by cassie s roberts on 2022/05/23 20:44
I hope this isn’t a new update that’s preventing me from listening to specific lists I created because I don’t have premium. I’ll switch to listening to YouTube REAL quick and this is after being on pandora for over a decade. You’re not going to control what I can and can’t listen to. One song is not worth $12.99
Music Refuses to Play
by Lynn.mauro on 2022/05/23 19:46
I’ve been listen and paying for Pandora for years at this point, and I’m literally getting ready to lose my mind because I will download music and then it just won’t play. The song will pop up but it’ll make me skip the song so another song will play. At this point it’s happening every over song and I’m absolutely over it. If this doesn’t get fixed I will be going to a cheaper and better music streaming service.

Offline stations not downloading for premium
by Jessica on 2022/05/23 13:21

This needs fixed
by itzyagurlEm on 2022/05/23 11:58
I have had this app for over two years and never had an issue with this before, recently it’s been acting super strange. I would completely close the app out or not even open it and it would start playing music by itself, the only way to shut it off was to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t know if it’s some sort of bug or what.

This crap doesn’t let you permanently delete you account whenever you want. There is all a process. Go to apple store, cancel membership, WAIT THE CANCELED MEMBESHIP TO EXPIRE, then, “next year” you can cancel your account. RIDICULOUS!
No ads?
by pandoraisimpossibe on 2022/05/23 02:07
I pay for premium so I don’t get ads disrupting my clients while I am working. So when the Pandora app interrupted my music to ask me to give a rating, it makes me very dissatisfied with the service that I am paying for

Love this app so much I can’t explain it!
by 55waterfall on 2020/12/09 18:56
I love listening to music, it is like a passion of mine. It is like a gift to me. I really like apps that I don’t have to pay for, and this one I don’t have too. The music is great sound quality on my phone without a speaker. It sounds even better with a speaker! The free version is super good! All you have to do to listen to ANY music is watch a 15 second ad which I don’t mind at all. I also like that you can play a specific song on the app. With many other apps that have a free version you can’t listen to a specific song it will just bring you to a station with songs like that song. With Pandora you can look up a song and play that song. You don’t have to go to a station like that song. I also like that I can make my own playlists. I have about ten current playlists which is amazing! I also like that they have the lyrics to the song. There are a few features missing. I wish that the lyrics would play by itself and not me having to scroll to get the lyrics. There are a couple other things that could be improved but no many! I bet the payed version is even better! Love this app so much!
Great app but...
by @sarca on 2021/01/04 03:28
This is an excellent app. I absolutely love it and I use it all the time. It allows free music, music curated for you, and make your own playlists. The reason, though, that I gave it three stars is because of ads. I get it. If I skip the songs like ten times, yeah I should get an ad. But sometimes the ads are quite long. And, on top of that, after the ad ends I only get two skips. Also, it randomly plays ads in the middle of songs. I will be listening to something then all of a sudden I will hear “We have great deals at target”. Usually these ads will last about thirty seconds and then when the ad is over, it skips the song you were listening to. One more complaint. If you make a playlist with 10+ songs, you will not be able to listen to all of them in one sitting. After listening to about 5-7 songs on your playlist, it will cut and send you to a random station. It’s annoying because sometimes I just wanna listen to MY songs. The ones that I picked out. This really gets on my nerves because when I’m in my feels, and I’m listening to my “sad song” playlist, it will cut randomly to a pop hits or a hip hop station. Once again. Super frustrating. I basically stopped making/listening to my playlist because I can only listen to a few songs in one sitting. Please fix these minor problems, but other than that...great app.
The buffering on this app is unbelievable!
by Alcbaby on 2022/04/22 16:55
So I decide after YEARS to purchase the most expensive plan so I can have offline stations on road trips, river floats, and hiking in the woods, and ever since I increased my package it’s gotten worse! I have full signal and it just buffers away. Won’t play on my speaks, won’t play in my truck, and won’t even play just on my phone. What the heck??? Why pay more for more issues. It was simpler when I had the lower version. I literally just increased it a month ago and here I am deciding to leave a review because it’s that bad!!! Sick of it! It shouldn’t be buffering with full signal. Update months later: STILL having issues with the buffering and “maintenance” issues and especially during the daytime when you want to listen to your music the most 3-1-22 ever since my iPhone updated to the new iOS Pandora will not work correctly. When I have it connected Bluetooth it says it’s connected but it won’t play a song so I skip it ahead and it’ll play that one song and then stop and then I have to skip ahead four to play another song and it does that on every Bluetooth device. 4-22 still having big issues. Won’t stay connected to Bluetooth. Just stops working in the middle of a song. Literally won’t play, won’t move, won’t count down. It’s happening to every station I put it on.
Omg so annoying
by wolf on amoung us on 2021/03/29 15:57
Top 10 reason you need to fix pandora. (1) you need to not have just 3 or 4 skips to the music. (2) Listen closely, my music will not work half of the time and pandora will not let me play any music unless I reboot my phone and delete pandora and get it again. (3) IF I WAS YOU SAY THESE ABOUT A 100 MORE TIMES!😡Ok no.(4) Fix the glitches you Know why I saw a little girl on the phone apparently and the when I got off of pandora I could not move the screen. (5) if you can let the radio know this I will be praying you will. Channel Star 94.9 to tell them this STOP PLAYING Mitt Romney Come put you records on. Stupidest song I ever heard. Ok (6) Sorry about no. (4)-(5) but please do them. (7) Pandora can you please fix this. When I type a song that I like but I like it better in orchestra it will go to a song called orchestra. Why!😭(8) use less adds. (9) I used to love pandora but now all it does is not work I don’t know if it’s my phone or not but if it is pandora fix it . (10) please repeat steps (1)-(10) a enough were you can say it like a bible verse. Please and Thank you
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.
Needs some technical improvement
by Kekerich409 on 2022/04/01 04:11
I would say this app is okay for a free music streaming app but there are technical issues that need improvement. First, the ads play during songs. A new song—usually a good one I would like to listen to—will begin playing the same time as an ad and when the ad is over the song will kind of skip a beat then continue playing. When this happens, the screen stays on the ad break screen for a while so I can’t skip the song until maybe half way through. Additionally, I turned on the Siri function and use the correct command phrase but Siri will say, “ok playing ____ station on pandora” then stop and say “sorry, you’ll need to continue with pandora” and I have to pick my phone up, unlock it, go to the pandora app and click that stupid “continue” button. With everything so accessible and hands free via Siri and Alexa, this seems unnecessary and should be done away with. As far as music, I usually listen to 2 particular stations: Tammy Rivera radio because Apple Music doesn’t have a station based for her and also R&B music station because I generally like the songs Pandora plays over Apple Music’s version of this station. Overall good music but technical improvement needed.
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 caleb_otto 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.
Premium Subscriber for Years!!
by LuLuOntheBayou on 2022/03/29 05:59
Pandora, do you just not care anymore?? I used to be able to open your app and listen to whatever.. everything went sooo smoothly.. now I am lucky to get your app open and playing on the first try.. it constantly crashes, annoyingly pauses for notifications .. and will not play some selections and idk why but it keeps going back to the first episode of any podcasts I listen to.. it used to work just fine.. I could pick right up where I left off.. but not anymore.. now I have to wait and wait and wait for it to begin and then guess which episode I left off with.. and don’t switch programs too often because it just freezes up.. ya know I stayed with Pandora even when everybody else was jumping ship and for what?!? Everybody said get rid of Pandora and here I am paying for a Premium Service and receiving GARBAGE!! What makes me extremely angry is reading the reviews of all your other customers. We are all having the same issues and are fed up Pandora!! On top of everything else .. the audacity of you to make it impossible to talk to customer service in unbelievable!! I should be able to tell you what is actually wrong not have to pick from a list of choices and try to pick what is closest to the problem and hopefully getting it resolved.. I am done!!
Political Adds....why needed on Pandora?
by maperbee on 2020/06/01 12:29
I really like Pandora. I would give you a 5 Star but I cannot at this time. I like getting PRODUCTS that are FOR SALE advertisement as I like to hear/see/buy what’s new. However I listen to Pandora because I want an escape from Politics and negativity! There is not an option to opt out or report as not appropriate for Political adds? Why do you (Pandora )force this? You allow opt outs for other things as I understand. Will you please update and allow for option of NOT hear political crap or not even accept political ads! They are not selling anything other than giving out negativity for free. This only creates a negative and toxic environment in my personal space that has Pandora playing your favorite music in the background! Pandora losses front stage when this happens. I want a positive and relaxing environment with my favorite music playing in the background and buying/looking/ listening to Product advertisers selling products to make a living for those that need a job to put food on their table for their families!!!
Pretty good but some issues
by 11223344455667788991011 on 2021/12/24 01:33
Hi I like this app(I’m not angry just slightly frustrated so please don’t take this like that)but there are some issues that I am having. I don’t know if anyone else is having them too, but I am and it’s annoying. About every other day-but it’s not consistent and recently it’s been happening more- I will play a song on the Pandora app, and it like glitches…but only if I listen to songs on my playlist. ~Just a note, I do not have Pandora Premium and I do not plan on getting it.~ It will say the song is playing, but it really isn’t because no sound comes out. And believe me, I have tried my volume all the way up, all the way down. My silent mode on, my silent mode off. Headphones, no headphones. Completely closing out of Pandora. Even deleting the app, getting it again and logging back in. And all of them combined and mixed together in all kinds of ways. It doesn’t do anything. And this “glitch” lasts anywhere from an hour to two days. Thank you for taking the time to consider my problems! Again, please don’t think I’m really angry, just a little frustrated. And I’m keeping Pandora, I just hope maybe the issue can be fixed. Thank you!!
Premium is AWESOME!!
by Dandelion685 on 2021/05/12 11:08
I’ve listened to pandora for years, pretty much since it started (I think). Just recently I decided to upgrade to the premium version and I have absolutely no regrets. It is well worth the monthly subscription rate. The love to listen to a variety of music, from old (Led Zeppelin) and other music from that era to music from the ‘90’s, 2000’s to today. I have a variety of stations setup that I have listened to; however, currently, for the past several weeks, I’ve been on the Goo-Goo Dolls station and not only am I hearing music from ‘90’s and 2000s that I recognize and absolutely loved back then but totally forgot about; but I’m also hearing “new” (old) music from these same bands that I really like as well. What I really like about pandora is that they provide the lyrics to the song, as well as a write-up about the band. Those are my two favorites things to do when I hear a new (or old) song that I love, especially when I have been singing the song wrong all these years thinking I know/knew what the lyrics were only to find out differently.
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.
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! 😁
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?!?
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.
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 😬
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.
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.
Treasure trove
by trafttuck86 on 2022/01/11 15:54
Pandora has been a huge contributor to my electronic music collection. Since I’m pushing age 60, it’s very difficult to me to be a participant in the leading edge of any technology. When I was new to Apple Music,I created a Pandora channel for my favorite musician, Elvis Costello. The song is that played and the artists chosen what a great reminders of my younger days and college days, andWhen a new artist I would show up, like madness or the specials, I could quickly switch to Apple Music and download a playlist of the essentials for that artist, which very quickly helped build my electronic music collection, As well as build other electronic or organicPlaylists on my phone. At this year’s New Year’s party, My “New Year’s funky eve“ playlist killed for three straight hours until the ball dropped. It’s a great way to expand your musical knowledge and collectA whole lot of songs you like. I find myself playing a recently downloaded album each night to put myself to sleep. I do not recommend anyone use the clashes combat rock
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.
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.
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.
Advertisements
by Lo Giudice on 2017/11/12 21:32
Advertisements are too frequent. I should NOT have to pay to not have commercials. I can use other competing music apps that don’t have commercials like Pandora does. Also, just because I “like” a song when I’m listening to one genre of radio station, doesn’t mean I want to hear that song when I’m listening to a different genre of radio station. As humans, we are all in different moods at different times, and enjoy listening to different genres of music, depending on our mood. So if I am in the mood to be listening to a more upbeat and dance type genre, that doesn’t mean I want to hear my favorite slow love song from Secondhand Serenade. Please keep the same theme of music within the genre of radio station selected by the customer. If I want to listen to a random mix of songs I have periodically “liked” on Pandora, then I can listen to my thumbprint station. Otherwise, if I pick “Dance Party”, I want Dancing themed music, likewise, if I pick “Love Songs”, I want to hear slow romantic deep lyrical music.
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!
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.

I grew up on this music and like a lot of my friends and family did also. I can’t say anything else about this music but it’s like you got to have air and water and music is like the natural thing’s in life too make it too the next breath give me my Zeppelin and will be just fine. I learned how to make love listening to Led Zeppelin. I will not give you my age at time. I sure We where not the only one at that age learning the way of life on this story telling music. I could go on for ever and I will say this I’m now a old man and when I’m listening to Zep I feel like I did when I was a young boy experiencing life. I still feel the like I remain the same as did as a pup. This world without this beautiful music could not have been the same world with out it. Please make sure you have your last Album with best of wait I don’t need to give you all any advice on how to make your last album just do what it is you do and all will remain the same. Thanks from one of your #1 fans Barney
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.
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.
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.
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!
Pandora
by I am RAT! *not really* on 2021/06/12 18:34
I like the app and all, but my mother WILL NOT LET ME LISTEN TO SONGS WITH WORDS! What is up with that?! I did find a way to listen to some music that had words on the radio that was not supposed to have music with words. So, I have been able to manage it until now. Last night I went to go to the drive in. When both movies were done I was gonna listen to my music. My mother offered to turn on my music, but I said no and tried to grab it from her. THEN she checked my iPad and changed my music to A RADIO STATION SO SO SO STUPID THAT I COULD EVEN LISTEN TO IT! Can you guess what radio station is was? SPA RADIO! I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE IT! *sure do wish I could listen to music WITH WORDS instead of a stupid stupid STUPID spa radio that I CAN’T EVEN LISTEN TO!!!!* Case Closed! Now, GOOD BYE! I truly do wish that when people update the app, the update will delete the stations that don’t have words. I still do love Pandora, but my mother ALWAYS HAS TO BE THE ONE TO GO AND MESS UP MY EXPERIENCE! I still do love her VERY VERY MUCH!❤️
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.
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
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
An Unfortunate End.
by The Light Shines Bright on 2020/08/04 04:48
I've used Pandora for almost a decade for my main source of music, and can remember discovering some of my favourite music here. However do to a recent and unfortunate experience, I will no longer be able to continue using them. This sudden change is do to the advertisements. Obviously pandora is free because of the add space they sell, and I'm generally understanding of this on any given day . Today however, was different. As I was waiting for the next song to play a rather unfortunate advertisement began to play, and it was incredibly disturbing to me. The advertisement was from a fringe political hate group that specifically fights for racial supremacy , a group that i consider the equivalent to a modern version of the Ku Klux Klan cult. Now I'm not usually one to get political, which is probably a reason why I'm so frustrated with this add, and in fact I avoid politics as much as possible, but this was over the line for me. I'm not going to get into who this group was exactly, as I don't believe they deserve any recognition, but unfortunately I will not be using this company again. People don't need political ideologies shoved down their throats, I just wanted to listen to some music man...
Just let us listen!
by garden_girl on 2020/04/26 14:59
This has been my favorite music radio station for over 15 years. I enjoyed it so much initially that I introduced my entire family to it. We all have subscriptions. But the incessant “someone else is listening” messages are about to end what up until now has been a completely harmonious relationship. Yesterday, I was listening in my living room on Apple TV, then left the room to take a bath without pausing. I thought I’d listen to my music on my bathroom Bose player while I got dressed. The “someone else is listening” message popped and my music stopped. (Remember, it was me listening, just from another room.) I stepped out of the bathtub and selected the “Let me listen” option. My music continued in the bathroom. But only until THAT SONG ended. Then the music stopped again and the message popped up. Again. I got out of the shower and chose “Let me listen”. Again. And again. Until I just gave it up. This happens all the time and it is ridiculous Pandora! What has been for me up until now a five star music experience has been all but destroyed by your paranoia that someone else might be listening to my premium account besides me. They’re not. And if I want to listen to MY account on every device in my home as I move from room to room, I should be able to listen. IT’S MY ACCOUNT. I’M PAYING FOR IT!!! Get this sorted out Pandora or you are going to lose your most loyal customers. We’ve loved you!
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!
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
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)
It keeps Crashing
by JULIANA☀️ on 2020/05/06 23:13
Okay so I have zero complaints about this app what so ever, in fact I love this app and I recommend it to all of my friends and family who don’t have it. I just have a question. I know that the app was updated a few days ago and it’s never crashed like this before. I was listening to music and I accidentally closed it. I went to go open it back up and it would either just be a black screen with a blue bar at the bottom or nothing at all. I tried to open it a few more times( I got the same result which was nothing every time) so I restarted my phone and tried again. The same thing kept happening ( I went to other apps to see if it was just this one or others; it’s just this app). I have uninstalled and reinstalled this app and it doesn’t even open for me to re-enter my information to login. I REALLY LOVE THIS APP AND DONT WANNA GET RID OF IT. I don’t know what to do or how to fix it. Can you please help?
I’ve got questions 🤔🤨
by ice496❄️❄️ on 2021/05/20 18:38
Ummm.....Im sad like REALLY sad cuz I LOVE LOVE LOVE music!! Yet I have problems with this app I wouldn’t recommend listening to Stronger Than You Chara version by Karaiinu because it just quiets the song as if u turned it down like what, 7 NOTCHES!! So u turn it up and everything seems okay.....UNTIL THE NEXT SONG PLAYS!!!! Then it’s booming loud!!!😡😡 Also as others have listed you have a playlist mine has oh, you know, like 57 songs and I know like that’s a LOT see I love music and have like fifty stations and playlists! But ya u play ur playlist and like 11 or so songs later you here what sounds like a short ringtone or something like that and it goes to the last station you left off on! Plus when u like listen to ur playlists on shuffle but have to watch an add first,wich I’m fine with but I like CLEARLY clicked shuffle and they play IN ORDER?!? Like BRUV seriously 😒 I mean it’s not a big deal probably to u guys but to me I HATE IT!!! Just my opinion. I mean even with these problems I still always listen to pandora! I’m actually listening RIGHT NOW as I write or type this review sorry if this is really long! BYE LOVE!🌺🌸💙🤍❄️🟥🟧🟨🟩🟦🟪

System bug
by A.mix on 2022/05/25 12:38
A song i “thumbs downed” keeps showing up on my playlist. 😤 maybe a bug in the system or then again, probably a punishment for not using the paid subscription i guess.

5 Star because of the algorithm, but some bugs
by anorris7 on 2022/05/25 11:53
Listen, if you want a music app that is clairvoyant, this is the one. Their recommendation engine is leaps and bounds above Spotify IMO. However, there are some really annoying things. Enough that I often consider dropping the service: 1. Pandora is owned by Sirius. They send me constant emails and mailed promotional offers. My dudes, why on Earth (or in orbit) would I ever buy your commercial-laden hardware required, new subscription required, pre-programmed, 1950s approach to music?? Please stop. 2. For music you've downloaded, you would think it would play when you have no internet connection, right? Well, you have to go into airplane mode otherwise it tries, synchronously I presume, to provide listening data back to the mother ship before playing your tracks. Developers take note: this should be an asynchronous call so the music plays on command yet you still get your listening metrics. 3. The iPhone app crashes pretty often. It's usually after I start listening and it plays like 2 minutes of the first song... just enough for me to get drenched into the shower... and then it crashes. You really need debug logs going back to the mother ship. Again, developers take note. But, the algorithm. Get outta here. It's ridiculously good. So i stick with it.... For now.

I pay for the monthly subscription. That should guarantee me downloaded music. 1 song is not meeting my needs.
😒
by 85boop on 2022/05/25 11:07
I used to love pandora but now not so much! Every time I pause my music or close it out when I return to listen the screen is frozen, the time of the sound is running like it’s playing but I can’t hear anything or the screen is blank. Ps I just literally updated it right before I wrote this review.

Why out songs with bad words in them on pandora?
by rhendiebe on 2022/05/25 00:14
Hi, I am just here to ask, why put songs with bad words in them on pandora? You should get rid of those songs. Just here to let you know that sometimes kids listen to music on here and songs they love have bad words in them. If you are not going rot take away those songs, then at least put kids bop songs on here of the same song but just a different version that has no bad words in it. If grown ups are listening to it them just make them answer a simple question that says: please tell us, are you a child or an adult? It will remove all the songs with bad words in them if they person replied that they were a kid. Please fix this very bad mistake. Thank you for your time.
Just one thing

Love Pandora! It’s as if it’s in my head. I listen for hours and no song is played twice. And everyone is familiar and singable or danceable. I’ve had Pandora since the first year it started. Never disappointed. Right now I’m in bumper to bumper traffic chillin and singing my heart out. Having a ball instead of stress.
The BEST
by The Dapper Scoundrel on 2022/05/24 19:07
Honestly feel like the algorithm generates the best playlists compared to any other music streaming app. I’ve been using pandora since 2007 and everyone suggests other streaming apps but Pandora’s music selection is by far the best after comparing. Im a barber and I run a genre/artist all day long and all my clients ask which app I use. Every client is surprised by how good the algorithm for song selection is! I’m never switching. Staying loyal till the end! Thanks Pandora for making me a “DJ” lol and having my clients vibe all day!

The latest version launches itself and will not close. Tried logging out then using the swipe up to terminate the process but it just relaunches to the login screen. The only way to shut off the app is the reboot the iPhone. Very annoying.

by bloxhirl on 2022/05/24 01:45
Good app for sure! But I’ve recently switched to Spotify and I can tell a difference. Pandora has an ad every two songs and it’s annoying. Whenever you try to play a song it pulls up the membership button where you have to press the X like 7 times to close it out. It’s really glitchy especially when u try to play a song and it pulls up the watch an ad and you have to spam the button then it brings up two ads. On Spotify you don’t have to listen to an ad to start listening to a song. Good app really but I’m lovin Spotify

you guys can add the feature to add a search bar in our song likes please! T_T i love pandora & it’s what i use more than spotify cuz i’m too lazy to search/discover for music & i don’t wanna just listen to one artist/genre. so i got like 100 stations of different artists of diff genres and just shuffle all the stations together (a feature that i LOVE)- but! they play the same songs over and over again so i keep disliking em but i want to make sure that i at least liked one for more opportunities of other songs playing
Way too many ads
by josrodortol on 2022/05/23 23:34
Of course I totally understand why they have ads and since I’m not willing to pay a monthly charge nothing could be more fair than having to listen to ads. Yes I get it! However the amount of ads on Pandora is just unacceptable! No other stream platform plays more ads than Pandora. I have to listen to two 30sec ads, then if I don’t like the next song and want to skip it, guess what happens!!! Another ad! It is ad after ad, non stop. And this is simply too much to handle. Goodbye Pandora

by MartinQ.Blank on 2022/05/23 23:08
Used Pandora for years- it’s always been good. Now that they allow you to play repeat on your favorite songs, and choose songs and/or albums to listen to on the spot, they’ve gotten better. I like Pandora because they will play songs that were not radio hits by the artists, and play similar artists- I’ve been exposed to a lot more music that way. My only complaints are that they will cycle in only a portion of the artists on my playlist, and then after a while, they will slowly cycle in some of the other artists from my playlist- I’d rather have them all shuffled in equally. The only other complaint is that they do not accept pre-paid cards, or I’d be gladly paying the monthly fee they advertise.

by cassie s roberts on 2022/05/23 20:44
I hope this isn’t a new update that’s preventing me from listening to specific lists I created because I don’t have premium. I’ll switch to listening to YouTube REAL quick and this is after being on pandora for over a decade. You’re not going to control what I can and can’t listen to. One song is not worth $12.99
Music Refuses to Play
by Lynn.mauro on 2022/05/23 19:46
I’ve been listen and paying for Pandora for years at this point, and I’m literally getting ready to lose my mind because I will download music and then it just won’t play. The song will pop up but it’ll make me skip the song so another song will play. At this point it’s happening every over song and I’m absolutely over it. If this doesn’t get fixed I will be going to a cheaper and better music streaming service.

Offline stations not downloading for premium
by Jessica on 2022/05/23 13:21
The main reason I got the premium version was for offline listening and ad free. Now my offline stations aren’t working and I’ve been waiting days for Pandora to help me take care of it.
This needs fixed
by itzyagurlEm on 2022/05/23 11:58
I have had this app for over two years and never had an issue with this before, recently it’s been acting super strange. I would completely close the app out or not even open it and it would start playing music by itself, the only way to shut it off was to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t know if it’s some sort of bug or what.

This crap doesn’t let you permanently delete you account whenever you want. There is all a process. Go to apple store, cancel membership, WAIT THE CANCELED MEMBESHIP TO EXPIRE, then, “next year” you can cancel your account. RIDICULOUS!
No ads?
by pandoraisimpossibe on 2022/05/23 02:07
I pay for premium so I don’t get ads disrupting my clients while I am working. So when the Pandora app interrupted my music to ask me to give a rating, it makes me very dissatisfied with the service that I am paying for

Love this app so much I can’t explain it!
by 55waterfall on 2020/12/09 18:56
I love listening to music, it is like a passion of mine. It is like a gift to me. I really like apps that I don’t have to pay for, and this one I don’t have too. The music is great sound quality on my phone without a speaker. It sounds even better with a speaker! The free version is super good! All you have to do to listen to ANY music is watch a 15 second ad which I don’t mind at all. I also like that you can play a specific song on the app. With many other apps that have a free version you can’t listen to a specific song it will just bring you to a station with songs like that song. With Pandora you can look up a song and play that song. You don’t have to go to a station like that song. I also like that I can make my own playlists. I have about ten current playlists which is amazing! I also like that they have the lyrics to the song. There are a few features missing. I wish that the lyrics would play by itself and not me having to scroll to get the lyrics. There are a couple other things that could be improved but no many! I bet the payed version is even better! Love this app so much!
Great app but...
by @sarca on 2021/01/04 03:28
This is an excellent app. I absolutely love it and I use it all the time. It allows free music, music curated for you, and make your own playlists. The reason, though, that I gave it three stars is because of ads. I get it. If I skip the songs like ten times, yeah I should get an ad. But sometimes the ads are quite long. And, on top of that, after the ad ends I only get two skips. Also, it randomly plays ads in the middle of songs. I will be listening to something then all of a sudden I will hear “We have great deals at target”. Usually these ads will last about thirty seconds and then when the ad is over, it skips the song you were listening to. One more complaint. If you make a playlist with 10+ songs, you will not be able to listen to all of them in one sitting. After listening to about 5-7 songs on your playlist, it will cut and send you to a random station. It’s annoying because sometimes I just wanna listen to MY songs. The ones that I picked out. This really gets on my nerves because when I’m in my feels, and I’m listening to my “sad song” playlist, it will cut randomly to a pop hits or a hip hop station. Once again. Super frustrating. I basically stopped making/listening to my playlist because I can only listen to a few songs in one sitting. Please fix these minor problems, but other than that...great app.
The buffering on this app is unbelievable!
by Alcbaby on 2022/04/22 16:55
So I decide after YEARS to purchase the most expensive plan so I can have offline stations on road trips, river floats, and hiking in the woods, and ever since I increased my package it’s gotten worse! I have full signal and it just buffers away. Won’t play on my speaks, won’t play in my truck, and won’t even play just on my phone. What the heck??? Why pay more for more issues. It was simpler when I had the lower version. I literally just increased it a month ago and here I am deciding to leave a review because it’s that bad!!! Sick of it! It shouldn’t be buffering with full signal. Update months later: STILL having issues with the buffering and “maintenance” issues and especially during the daytime when you want to listen to your music the most 3-1-22 ever since my iPhone updated to the new iOS Pandora will not work correctly. When I have it connected Bluetooth it says it’s connected but it won’t play a song so I skip it ahead and it’ll play that one song and then stop and then I have to skip ahead four to play another song and it does that on every Bluetooth device. 4-22 still having big issues. Won’t stay connected to Bluetooth. Just stops working in the middle of a song. Literally won’t play, won’t move, won’t count down. It’s happening to every station I put it on.
Omg so annoying
by wolf on amoung us on 2021/03/29 15:57
Top 10 reason you need to fix pandora. (1) you need to not have just 3 or 4 skips to the music. (2) Listen closely, my music will not work half of the time and pandora will not let me play any music unless I reboot my phone and delete pandora and get it again. (3) IF I WAS YOU SAY THESE ABOUT A 100 MORE TIMES!😡Ok no.(4) Fix the glitches you Know why I saw a little girl on the phone apparently and the when I got off of pandora I could not move the screen. (5) if you can let the radio know this I will be praying you will. Channel Star 94.9 to tell them this STOP PLAYING Mitt Romney Come put you records on. Stupidest song I ever heard. Ok (6) Sorry about no. (4)-(5) but please do them. (7) Pandora can you please fix this. When I type a song that I like but I like it better in orchestra it will go to a song called orchestra. Why!😭(8) use less adds. (9) I used to love pandora but now all it does is not work I don’t know if it’s my phone or not but if it is pandora fix it . (10) please repeat steps (1)-(10) a enough were you can say it like a bible verse. Please and Thank you
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.
Needs some technical improvement
by Kekerich409 on 2022/04/01 04:11
I would say this app is okay for a free music streaming app but there are technical issues that need improvement. First, the ads play during songs. A new song—usually a good one I would like to listen to—will begin playing the same time as an ad and when the ad is over the song will kind of skip a beat then continue playing. When this happens, the screen stays on the ad break screen for a while so I can’t skip the song until maybe half way through. Additionally, I turned on the Siri function and use the correct command phrase but Siri will say, “ok playing ____ station on pandora” then stop and say “sorry, you’ll need to continue with pandora” and I have to pick my phone up, unlock it, go to the pandora app and click that stupid “continue” button. With everything so accessible and hands free via Siri and Alexa, this seems unnecessary and should be done away with. As far as music, I usually listen to 2 particular stations: Tammy Rivera radio because Apple Music doesn’t have a station based for her and also R&B music station because I generally like the songs Pandora plays over Apple Music’s version of this station. Overall good music but technical improvement needed.
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

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.
Premium Subscriber for Years!!
by LuLuOntheBayou on 2022/03/29 05:59
Pandora, do you just not care anymore?? I used to be able to open your app and listen to whatever.. everything went sooo smoothly.. now I am lucky to get your app open and playing on the first try.. it constantly crashes, annoyingly pauses for notifications .. and will not play some selections and idk why but it keeps going back to the first episode of any podcasts I listen to.. it used to work just fine.. I could pick right up where I left off.. but not anymore.. now I have to wait and wait and wait for it to begin and then guess which episode I left off with.. and don’t switch programs too often because it just freezes up.. ya know I stayed with Pandora even when everybody else was jumping ship and for what?!? Everybody said get rid of Pandora and here I am paying for a Premium Service and receiving GARBAGE!! What makes me extremely angry is reading the reviews of all your other customers. We are all having the same issues and are fed up Pandora!! On top of everything else .. the audacity of you to make it impossible to talk to customer service in unbelievable!! I should be able to tell you what is actually wrong not have to pick from a list of choices and try to pick what is closest to the problem and hopefully getting it resolved.. I am done!!
Political Adds....why needed on Pandora?
by maperbee on 2020/06/01 12:29
I really like Pandora. I would give you a 5 Star but I cannot at this time. I like getting PRODUCTS that are FOR SALE advertisement as I like to hear/see/buy what’s new. However I listen to Pandora because I want an escape from Politics and negativity! There is not an option to opt out or report as not appropriate for Political adds? Why do you (Pandora )force this? You allow opt outs for other things as I understand. Will you please update and allow for option of NOT hear political crap or not even accept political ads! They are not selling anything other than giving out negativity for free. This only creates a negative and toxic environment in my personal space that has Pandora playing your favorite music in the background! Pandora losses front stage when this happens. I want a positive and relaxing environment with my favorite music playing in the background and buying/looking/ listening to Product advertisers selling products to make a living for those that need a job to put food on their table for their families!!!
Pretty good but some issues
by 11223344455667788991011 on 2021/12/24 01:33
Hi I like this app(I’m not angry just slightly frustrated so please don’t take this like that)but there are some issues that I am having. I don’t know if anyone else is having them too, but I am and it’s annoying. About every other day-but it’s not consistent and recently it’s been happening more- I will play a song on the Pandora app, and it like glitches…but only if I listen to songs on my playlist. ~Just a note, I do not have Pandora Premium and I do not plan on getting it.~ It will say the song is playing, but it really isn’t because no sound comes out. And believe me, I have tried my volume all the way up, all the way down. My silent mode on, my silent mode off. Headphones, no headphones. Completely closing out of Pandora. Even deleting the app, getting it again and logging back in. And all of them combined and mixed together in all kinds of ways. It doesn’t do anything. And this “glitch” lasts anywhere from an hour to two days. Thank you for taking the time to consider my problems! Again, please don’t think I’m really angry, just a little frustrated. And I’m keeping Pandora, I just hope maybe the issue can be fixed. Thank you!!
Premium is AWESOME!!
by Dandelion685 on 2021/05/12 11:08
I’ve listened to pandora for years, pretty much since it started (I think). Just recently I decided to upgrade to the premium version and I have absolutely no regrets. It is well worth the monthly subscription rate. The love to listen to a variety of music, from old (Led Zeppelin) and other music from that era to music from the ‘90’s, 2000’s to today. I have a variety of stations setup that I have listened to; however, currently, for the past several weeks, I’ve been on the Goo-Goo Dolls station and not only am I hearing music from ‘90’s and 2000s that I recognize and absolutely loved back then but totally forgot about; but I’m also hearing “new” (old) music from these same bands that I really like as well. What I really like about pandora is that they provide the lyrics to the song, as well as a write-up about the band. Those are my two favorites things to do when I hear a new (or old) song that I love, especially when I have been singing the song wrong all these years thinking I know/knew what the lyrics were only to find out differently.
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.
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! 😁
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?!?
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.
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 😬
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.
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.
Treasure trove
by trafttuck86 on 2022/01/11 15:54
Pandora has been a huge contributor to my electronic music collection. Since I’m pushing age 60, it’s very difficult to me to be a participant in the leading edge of any technology. When I was new to Apple Music,I created a Pandora channel for my favorite musician, Elvis Costello. The song is that played and the artists chosen what a great reminders of my younger days and college days, andWhen a new artist I would show up, like madness or the specials, I could quickly switch to Apple Music and download a playlist of the essentials for that artist, which very quickly helped build my electronic music collection, As well as build other electronic or organicPlaylists on my phone. At this year’s New Year’s party, My “New Year’s funky eve“ playlist killed for three straight hours until the ball dropped. It’s a great way to expand your musical knowledge and collectA whole lot of songs you like. I find myself playing a recently downloaded album each night to put myself to sleep. I do not recommend anyone use the clashes combat rock
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.
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.
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.
Advertisements
by Lo Giudice on 2017/11/12 21:32
Advertisements are too frequent. I should NOT have to pay to not have commercials. I can use other competing music apps that don’t have commercials like Pandora does. Also, just because I “like” a song when I’m listening to one genre of radio station, doesn’t mean I want to hear that song when I’m listening to a different genre of radio station. As humans, we are all in different moods at different times, and enjoy listening to different genres of music, depending on our mood. So if I am in the mood to be listening to a more upbeat and dance type genre, that doesn’t mean I want to hear my favorite slow love song from Secondhand Serenade. Please keep the same theme of music within the genre of radio station selected by the customer. If I want to listen to a random mix of songs I have periodically “liked” on Pandora, then I can listen to my thumbprint station. Otherwise, if I pick “Dance Party”, I want Dancing themed music, likewise, if I pick “Love Songs”, I want to hear slow romantic deep lyrical music.
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!
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.
Life
by Bars nap on 2021/07/17 12:05
I grew up on this music and like a lot of my friends and family did also. I can’t say anything else about this music but it’s like you got to have air and water and music is like the natural thing’s in life too make it too the next breath give me my Zeppelin and will be just fine. I learned how to make love listening to Led Zeppelin. I will not give you my age at time. I sure We where not the only one at that age learning the way of life on this story telling music. I could go on for ever and I will say this I’m now a old man and when I’m listening to Zep I feel like I did when I was a young boy experiencing life. I still feel the like I remain the same as did as a pup. This world without this beautiful music could not have been the same world with out it. Please make sure you have your last Album with best of wait I don’t need to give you all any advice on how to make your last album just do what it is you do and all will remain the same. Thanks from one of your #1 fans Barney
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.
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.
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.
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!
Pandora

I like the app and all, but my mother WILL NOT LET ME LISTEN TO SONGS WITH WORDS! What is up with that?! I did find a way to listen to some music that had words on the radio that was not supposed to have music with words. So, I have been able to manage it until now. Last night I went to go to the drive in. When both movies were done I was gonna listen to my music. My mother offered to turn on my music, but I said no and tried to grab it from her. THEN she checked my iPad and changed my music to A RADIO STATION SO SO SO STUPID THAT I COULD EVEN LISTEN TO IT! Can you guess what radio station is was? SPA RADIO! I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE IT! *sure do wish I could listen to music WITH WORDS instead of a stupid stupid STUPID spa radio that I CAN’T EVEN LISTEN TO!!!!* Case Closed! Now, GOOD BYE! I truly do wish that when people update the app, the update will delete the stations that don’t have words. I still do love Pandora, but my mother ALWAYS HAS TO BE THE ONE TO GO AND MESS UP MY EXPERIENCE! I still do love her VERY VERY MUCH!❤️
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.
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
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
An Unfortunate End.
by The Light Shines Bright on 2020/08/04 04:48
I've used Pandora for almost a decade for my main source of music, and can remember discovering some of my favourite music here. However do to a recent and unfortunate experience, I will no longer be able to continue using them. This sudden change is do to the advertisements. Obviously pandora is free because of the add space they sell, and I'm generally understanding of this on any given day . Today however, was different. As I was waiting for the next song to play a rather unfortunate advertisement began to play, and it was incredibly disturbing to me. The advertisement was from a fringe political hate group that specifically fights for racial supremacy , a group that i consider the equivalent to a modern version of the Ku Klux Klan cult. Now I'm not usually one to get political, which is probably a reason why I'm so frustrated with this add, and in fact I avoid politics as much as possible, but this was over the line for me. I'm not going to get into who this group was exactly, as I don't believe they deserve any recognition, but unfortunately I will not be using this company again. People don't need political ideologies shoved down their throats, I just wanted to listen to some music man...
Just let us listen!

This has been my favorite music radio station for over 15 years. I enjoyed it so much initially that I introduced my entire family to it. We all have subscriptions. But the incessant “someone else is listening” messages are about to end what up until now has been a completely harmonious relationship. Yesterday, I was listening in my living room on Apple TV, then left the room to take a bath without pausing. I thought I’d listen to my music on my bathroom Bose player while I got dressed. The “someone else is listening” message popped and my music stopped. (Remember, it was me listening, just from another room.) I stepped out of the bathtub and selected the “Let me listen” option. My music continued in the bathroom. But only until THAT SONG ended. Then the music stopped again and the message popped up. Again. I got out of the shower and chose “Let me listen”. Again. And again. Until I just gave it up. This happens all the time and it is ridiculous Pandora! What has been for me up until now a five star music experience has been all but destroyed by your paranoia that someone else might be listening to my premium account besides me. They’re not. And if I want to listen to MY account on every device in my home as I move from room to room, I should be able to listen. IT’S MY ACCOUNT. I’M PAYING FOR IT!!! Get this sorted out Pandora or you are going to lose your most loyal customers. We’ve loved you!
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!
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
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)
It keeps Crashing
by JULIANA☀️ on 2020/05/06 23:13
Okay so I have zero complaints about this app what so ever, in fact I love this app and I recommend it to all of my friends and family who don’t have it. I just have a question. I know that the app was updated a few days ago and it’s never crashed like this before. I was listening to music and I accidentally closed it. I went to go open it back up and it would either just be a black screen with a blue bar at the bottom or nothing at all. I tried to open it a few more times( I got the same result which was nothing every time) so I restarted my phone and tried again. The same thing kept happening ( I went to other apps to see if it was just this one or others; it’s just this app). I have uninstalled and reinstalled this app and it doesn’t even open for me to re-enter my information to login. I REALLY LOVE THIS APP AND DONT WANNA GET RID OF IT. I don’t know what to do or how to fix it. Can you please help?
I’ve got questions 🤔🤨
by ice496❄️❄️ on 2021/05/20 18:38
Ummm.....Im sad like REALLY sad cuz I LOVE LOVE LOVE music!! Yet I have problems with this app I wouldn’t recommend listening to Stronger Than You Chara version by Karaiinu because it just quiets the song as if u turned it down like what, 7 NOTCHES!!

Then it’s booming loud!!!😡😡 Also as others have listed you have a playlist mine has oh, you know, like 57 songs and I know like that’s a LOT see I love music and have like fifty stations and playlists! But ya u play ur playlist and like 11 or so songs later you here what sounds like a short ringtone or something like that and it goes to the last station you left off on! Plus when u like listen to ur playlists on shuffle but have to watch an add first,wich I’m fine with but I like CLEARLY clicked shuffle and they play IN ORDER?!? Like BRUV seriously 😒 I mean it’s not a big deal probably to u guys but to me I HATE IT!!! Just my opinion. I mean even with these problems I still always listen to pandora! I’m actually listening RIGHT NOW as I write or type this review sorry if this is really long! BYE LOVE!🌺🌸💙🤍❄️🟥🟧🟨🟩🟦🟪
