@Villafrancisco Nice to see you around the community. 🤝

@joemd1960 is correct - you don't actually need a Google account in order to stream Pandora.

If you are running into issues streaming, could you tell me a bit more about what is happening? Are you listening to Pandora on a computer or on a device?

  1. If you are on a computer, are you listening from:
    • A Mac or Windows computer?
    • Our website, or the desktop app? If you're listening from our website, what browser are you using?
  2. If you are on a device, what is the make and model (and carrier, if applicable)?
  3. Is there an error message? If so, what does it say?
  4. Can you provide me with a screenshot/screen-recording of what you're seeing? 

Let me know.

You don’t need a Google account to sign up with Pandora. Just an email address of your choosing and a  password to create an account.

Why do I have to access a Google account to listen to Pandora.com?  Does Google own Pandora?

Hi there, @mimi. 👋

The short answer is no. SiriusXM and Pandora currently operate as separate services with their own subscription products and user agreements. You can find out more about Pandora here

In order to create a Pandora account, you don't need to have a Google email address. I've checked in with our User Support team and the email address associated with your Pandora account is under "yahoo.com". 

Are you having trouble with creating a new account or updating your email address? 

Let me know. 🎧
