    Pandora is one of my favorite apps for listening to music. The reason is that not only can I listen to 90s music, but I can listen to music from the 80s, 70s, whatever style of music I'd like. it's very easy to use and well worth it.

    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!

    This is my favorite app to listen to music, but lately it's been very glitchy. A message keeps popping up that, "We're experiencing tech difficulties," it's skipping in the middle of songs, and it may take many seconds-to-minutes to play the next song. The majority of the time I listen while connected to wifi and I'm not experiencing issues with other music streaming apps. Also, I tried deleting and reinstalling the app but the issues continue.
  • Great app but... Jan 4, 2021

    By @sarca
    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! Apr 22, 2022

    By Alcbaby
    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.

(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.

    When it worked, loved it!! Over the last 2 days. I can't even get it to start up. Keep saying no connection to service. Have tried adjusting apps, restarting phone, even force closing it to reboot. Still nothing. Thinking about saying to hell with it and just getting a Spotify subscription. Losing 2 days of paid service because of this issue, possibly more.

    ads pop up but the user interface has gotten better. Having trouble getting it to work on data but still trying (was working but just stopped) will get stuck on a couple of the same songs but just thumbs up or down a couple new ones. All in all much easier to build a station to your tast with nothing but how you like your music to sound, Instead of Spotify or iTunes where you kinda have to start with a artist and keep adding. I feel like this just works better for me! :)
  • Needs some technical improvement Apr 1, 2022

    By Kekerich409
    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.
  • Political Adds....why needed on Pandora? Jun 1, 2020

    By maperbee
    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 Dec 24, 2021

    By 11223344455667788991011
    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!!

    After a 2 year hiatus from using the app, decided to give it another shot. First two times I used it, it was great! Battery usage was very minimal, and everything was great. Two days later, however, and the app is failing to connect to the server. My mom is having the same issue on a totally different type of phone, and she's paying for it. Everything else works great on my phone (Galaxy Note Ultra), Spotify, Amazon, YT Music... Maybe I'll try again in another 2 years.
  • App needs so much work Mar 28, 2019

    By Waelwulfan
    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.

    Yoo man! Ya have to do something about this glitch, I didn't pay monthly for it not to work. This is the only music platform I do my music listening because it has great selected stations from New and varies of songs. It has been saying "Waiting for connections, please try again", it's always connected with wifi or data. I tried "Force stop" the app, nothing. Uninstall to reinstall, sometime it works sometimes it doesn't. I'll hate to hop ship to different platform.
  • Ads, ads, and then more ads Oct 21, 2017

    By Combzz
    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.

    I love pandora. I've had it since before smart phones. But the glitches lately are horrible. It will freeze and even when you clear the app out and go back thinking it will reset, it just goes back to the same frozen screen. Also, it won't let me click on the edit button for shuffle that's let's you pick and choose your stations. Very annoying.
  • Nothing compared to Apple Music Feb 5, 2020

    By caleb_otto
    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.

    I love the layout, but I will have full service in either data or wifi, and will be unable to play music, as it is stuck on the loading screen with a popup saying "waiting for connection" used to be able to uninstall then reinstall and it would fix the problem. But can't even do that anymore. What's the point of enjoying the music or updates if I can't even access past the loading screen?

    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!!

    Will not play! Continuously states that the selection is "unavailable". Please music regardless the last time I "put it on the shelf". Clearly is only playing music that is less expensive for Pandora. Does not highlight my likes, or disregard my dislikes. Constantly crashing. Unable to edit playlist. Had more features in the free version. I'm done paying for this to not work.

    I've been a Pandora user for over a decade now, and I've never had much to complain about, but the app is now completely unusable. I've had to reinstall it or clear out the data cache to log in every day for the past week and a half now. I've also followed all the Android troubleshooting tips and none have helped at all. The issue still persists every time I close the app and try to open it up again. Pandora, I love your service, but I'm paying for Premium and have to reinstall it EVERY time.

    I've been using Pandora Premium for over a decade and still love it. Just thought it was time to stop in and show my appreciation. I love the intelligent playlist curation, the selection, and how intuitive the controls are. I do wish that there was an ability to stream to Alexa while controlling with the app on my phone.
  • Premium is AWESOME!! May 12, 2021

    By Dandelion685
    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!!! Dec 2, 2017

    By Vipedogg
    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.
  • It could be better Mar 10, 2019

    By Margaret Kellyyy
    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?!?

    Edit- About 30 minutes after writing this, the app started working again. Not sure why but it's working fine again. Have used app for years without problem, but today it stopped working in the middle of playing music and has refused to play any station despite closing app, updating app, restarting phone, changing every setting related to app, and trying everything else I could think of. Lost an hour of my day and missed my workout. This is extremely annoying, the app worked fine before.
  • Needs work Apr 27, 2020

    By #worldofcolor
    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.
  • Why I love Pandora. Nov 30, 2019

    By Pastel Peach🌸
    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 ❤️
  • Downloaded songs not really accessible Jan 24, 2018

    By Kitkatbiggie
    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??? Oct 13, 2018

    By Musically Lost
    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.
  • Not pleased.... Dec 2, 2021

    By donkeydust
    I have the free app, so I am wondering if my input is actually wanted. I am in my late 60’s and so a ‘music app’ on my cell phone is great in itself. However, I really don’t think it is professional to use this app to ‘push’ political causes, views in people’s faces...and I am tired of it. The majority of my stations feature black artists. That’s what I grew up with and love. I don’t listen to them because they are black. I listen to them because I love their amazing sound. To listen to a music or buy a product because someone is black, to me, is a very insulting form of racism. I don’t like having Pandora’s views/opinions shoved in my face when I just want to listen to good music—and there are now alternatives. Also, those nauseating, condescending McDonald’s ads, telling me that you don’t ‘eat’ their food, but you ‘feel’ it, have caused me to stop eating there entirely. I guess I should just shut-up and pay for your app with no advertising. I think I’ll wait and see if you guys make some changes first.
  • I love this app but something just happened... Sep 7, 2017

    By Glinderella
    Okay, so this app is amazing. Just because you have to pay for no adds and offline use and all of that junk it's a great app. I've been using it for I think a year, maybe more, maybe less. I don't know. After the resent update, Pandora forces me to use my free trial for Pandora Premium. I was saving it for my next summer vacation so I could really enjoy it instead of just knowing I'm wasting my week of an amazing Pandora experience. At first, I had absolutely no idea what was going on and for a minute I thought I had bought the subscription and being a fourteen year old, I was super scared that I was charging my mother's bank account. So, Pandora, if you read this, your app is amazing, but please take away my free trial and let me save it!! Thank you! I haven't had any crashes, like ever. (The teenager came out sorry) so I'm not afraid of that. This app really deserves 5 stars except the free trial thing. Okay, so, all in all, this is a great app and you should really get it. It's the best one like it.
  • Love Pandora! Avid user... BUT! May 13, 2019

    By Beccajean89
    I love Pandora. I use it daily. It's awesome. Between my own personal use, and then playing for my kids while they play, we use it for hours and hours each day. BUT! I've got two problems with it: 1) for some reason, the app won't let me hit play from my lock screen after it's been paused for a few seconds. It just automatically re-pauses. I've gotta unlock the phone and then go back in and hit play that way. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. 2) my biggest problem is the ads. Having Ads- not a big deal. It's the ad CONTENT that gets me. My kids will be listening to a Disney themed station or Veggie Tales station and an ad for Tampax or Trojan condoms will come on. I don't think those ads are very appropriate. If they're played after a certain time each night- sure, whatever. But this was in the late mornings and early afternoon on kid stations. I'll keep using Pandora. I love it! I'll just have to make sure I turn the volume off in a hurry if inappropriate ads pop up.
  • I love Pandora but it could fix a few things Sep 24, 2020

    By theonlymathew
    I have been a Pandora user for as long as I can remember and I love it honestly. I only have a few issues with it like the fact that I get one song from the station that the artist is made from usually and then it can go into a completely different genre, but if you could customize your stations so that the music it plays is a little bit more similar to the subject of the station or a little more to that persons liking it would be much more enjoyable. Also the Pandora app on Apple Watch does not sound that good. I was really excited to use this app on my watch but when I heard the songs it took forever to load and it was just not a good quality. Some of the songs that played on Pandora I already had stored on my watch and the difference between the two was astonishing. If they could just raise the quality of the music on the watch I would be so happy.
  • Great app, just could use some tweaks Jan 10, 2018

    By John (in) Denver
    Pandora is one of my favorite apps. I listen to it almost daily. Nearly daily, however, it suffers little issues that frustrate me. Examples: The thumbs up/down feature is cool, but crude and its true functionality is in clear. Consider: A song comes on that I like, but it’s a live version. I hate listening to live versions of songs. So is that a thumbs up or down? Lately, if I have been listening for a while and my phone has gone into sleep mode (not sure that is the proper term), I’ll open the phone again and the pause/play button will be locked. The phone isn’t locked. Other controls work, but I can’t stop/start the music without starting a different station. Very frustrating. One more: I started a new station by picking a band (Alabama). Sure enough, first song was a live version of a mediocre song. I skipped the song. The next few songs that came up were non-Alabama songs I liked - songs I would like on an Alabama station. Thumbs up. No more Alabama songs. I quickly stopped thumbing up, then started skipping. Finally, I thumbed down some songs I actually liked. After an hour of music, Pandora had only played three crappy Alabama songs or crappy versions of good Alabama songs. I quit the station and deleted it. Next day I tried again and had a much better, but not great experience with a new Alabama station. Wonderful, magical, but sometimes very confusing.
  • Awesome App But Too Laggy Sep 24, 2019

    By _ChillPill_
    This app is fantastic!! I’ve never searched for a song & not found it; and I love how they have albums and podcasts too! Plus it’s free😱🤩 All you have to do is watch a short ad, and then you can listen to about seven or so songs. You also have the option to pay for no ads, which is really great too. My only problem is how laggy it is sometimes. Maybe it’s just my bad internet, but it gets stuck a lot, and I have to close it for a while before I can even click buttons on it. My phone has the latest version so I don’t think my end is the problem 🤷🏼‍♀️ Another Thing is that if you listen to a song, what will play next is a station, and you can get into some junk. There’s a lot of inappropriate songs that come up, I’d definitely say 13+, because you could accidentally get into a song that’s full of cussing. Overall, I listen to Pandora all the time 💙 and I definitely recommend it!
  • Keeping my station ALL “thumbs up” May 23, 2018

    By Mawgy!
    In general, I am very happy with Pandora. I am subscribed to Pandora Plus, or whatever the no commercial option is called. There is no possible way for me to know the algorhythm, or whatever Pandora uses to choose selections for an individual station. I have been actively using the “thumb system” on a particular station for probably a couple of months now and still choices slip in that are nothing like all the “thumbs up” choices I make. This may be a lot to ask of a “free” station, but I’d even be willing to pay to have my station more streamlined without “thumbs down interruptions.” I want to set a sleep timer and not wake up the next morning hearing all manner of music I’d prefer not to hear and have to go through thumbing down again to maybe achieve what the station was before all those other choices crept in. Pandora offers a unique service, and I’d like to see this option offered for a fee.
  • May 3, 2022

    By Michele
    This is my favorite app to listen to music, but lately it's been very glitchy. A message keeps popping up that, "We're experiencing tech difficulties," it's skipping in the middle of songs, and it may take many seconds-to-minutes to play the next song. The majority of the time I listen while connected to wifi and I'm not experiencing issues with other music streaming apps. Also, I tried deleting and reinstalling the app but the issues continue.
  • Great app but... Jan 4, 2021

    By @sarca
    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! Apr 22, 2022

    By Alcbaby
    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.

    By Terry rush
    When it worked, loved it!! Over the last 2 days. I can't even get it to start up. Keep saying no connection to service. Have tried adjusting apps, restarting phone, even force closing it to reboot. Still nothing. Thinking about saying to hell with it and just getting a Spotify subscription. Losing 2 days of paid service because of this issue, possibly more.
  • Needs some technical improvement Apr 1, 2022

    By Kekerich409
    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.
  • Pretty good but some issues Dec 24, 2021

    By 11223344455667788991011
    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!!

    Had this app for many years, but recently it hasn't been going passed the loading screen when I open the app, saying, "Waiting for connection, try again?" Even when I do have internet connection. I've restarted my phone, cleared the catche and data, and nothing. I somewhat resolved the issue by unistalling and reinstalling, but once I exit the app, I'd have to uninstall and reinstall again to get back in, it's really annoying. Please fix, I don't want to start over downloading music on Spotify.
  • Pandora Plus...has its flaws. Feb 16, 2020

    By Courtney4367732
    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.

    By Kristin Horn
    I love pandora I just wish the app wasn't so buggy. The worst is I have turned off the setting that makes it play music as soon as I open the app but that doesn't work it always starts up the last song or station immediately. What's worse is I've turned off the setting to launch pandora when I plug my phone into the car and that doesn't work either and it does it every time I start my car then the notification for playing in the car hangs there the rest of the day and won't go away.

  • App needs so much work Mar 28, 2019

    By Waelwulfan
    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.

    Yoo man! Ya have to do something about this glitch, I didn't pay monthly for it not to work. This is the only music platform I do my music listening because it has great selected stations from New and varies of songs. It has been saying "Waiting for connections, please try again", it's always connected with wifi or data. I tried "Force stop" the app, nothing. Uninstall to reinstall, sometime it works sometimes it doesn't. I'll hate to hop ship to different platform.

    I've been using this app for years, but recently these past few years the quality has went down. Now almost every time I use the app there's some type of issue, whether it takes forever to load, the songs keep on playing after I close the app, just over all super glitchy and inconvenient. I'm very close to just deleting and using something else. If it wasn't for the fact that I've been using it for years and it has all of my music, I would have deleted a long time ago.
  • I want an improved music service Nov 7, 2017

    By Navy Tester
    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! 😁
  • Organization Feb 2, 2019

    By Go2camp
    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.
  • Not a good algorhythm Oct 27, 2018

    By MMoore49
    The problems I have with Pandora are that I type in a group or a song name I want to hear and maybe I’ll hear one song by that group and then many, many songs by all types of other bands, many of which I give a “thumbs down” but they still cycle around. Sometimes I’ll dislike a group and then Pandora will send 2 or 3 more songs by that group, when I HATE that group, but no songs of the group I want to hear. Another point is that when you give a “thumbs up” to various songs, Pandora will just repeat those songs first, when turning on that station, and no other songs by the group you WANTED to hear. Like that group made no other songs, ever! But It’ll give you 3 songs in a row by some group you hate. Also, Pandora will, after cycling through the liked songs, play an endless list of songs you never heard of and don’t like and not a single song you want again. Don’t even get me started on a finite number of skips. Yes, I use the free version of Pandora, but truthfully why am I going to pay to hear tons of other crap? Sometimes the music you disliked bleeds over to other unrelated stations. Why would I pay?! I will not give you my money, Pandora.
  • Rather lacking... Apr 10, 2020

    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.

    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

    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!🌺🌸💙🤍❄️🟥🟧🟨🟩🟦🟪
  • Terrible app! Jul 30, 2019

    By Ashley5330
    I really like Pandora, so I decided to get the premium version. 1. Unfortunately, one of my biggest issues is that the songs stop playing randomly unless I stay in the app with my phone on the whole time. This can get really annoying when you have to keep going back into the app to resume the song. 2. When I put the app in offline mode there are still lots of problems. I’ll be listening to my music while I’m doing something like hw and then it will start playing two songs at once. I can only pause one song and the other one just keeps playing. So, I have to go back in to close the app and wait a few minutes to reopen it and restart my playlist. 3. When I want to add new songs to a playlist i go to turn off offline mode, but then everything freezes! I can’t scroll, edit, or turn offline mode back on. I know that all of these have little fixes but it is such a pain to stop what you’re doing to fix these. Listening to music is supposed to be enjoyable and this just ruins it. I suggest to anyone wanting to get premium not too. I’d take the ads over this any day.

    After a 2 year hiatus from using the app, decided to give it another shot. First two times I used it, it was great! Battery usage was very minimal, and everything was great. Two days later, however, and the app is failing to connect to the server. My mom is having the same issue on a totally different type of phone, and she's paying for it. Everything else works great on my phone (Galaxy Note Ultra), Spotify, Amazon, YT Music... Maybe I'll try again in another 2 years.
  • Ads, ads, and then more ads Oct 21, 2017

    By Combzz
    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.

    I love pandora. I've had it since before smart phones. But the glitches lately are horrible. It will freeze and even when you clear the app out and go back thinking it will reset, it just goes back to the same frozen screen. Also, it won't let me click on the edit button for shuffle that's let's you pick and choose your stations. Very annoying.
  • Nothing compared to Apple Music Feb 5, 2020

    By caleb_otto
    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.
