It just shows its buffering for 10 seconds then skips to the next song? Nothing plays it just skips and skips. And idea's?
Moderator Edit: Changed title for clarity
It's probably, because I'm hunting for some long lost stations, that I lost the bookmarks to when you removed station bookmarks, which I had bookmarked because you have a station limit, even though you save the stations indefinitely, which I know, because I've stumbled on other lost stations by trying to start a new station with the same artist or track that the lost station was started with, so I know they're there... When I add the right track, they pop up with all of the old seeds I added, and all of the thumbs up and down, and whatever name and description I gave them however many years ago. Because they're very complex stations with many seeds that I renamed, I have no idea what track or artist I started them with... I've found some, but not the ones I really want, so I keep adding artist after artist and song after song, and deleting stations when I hit the limit, and then this nonsense starts..
If you could just give me the old station bookmarks back, and get rid of the silly station limits since you save them anyway, I wouldn't have this problem.. lol
@DavetheDefiant Thanks for clarifying that information, and for your feedback.
Could you provide the names of the station(s) that you're trying to recover?
I can help with restoring any deleted stations that you're looking for.
Let me know. 🎧
I don't even remember the half of them. I had a bunch I named for a feel or vibe, like sultry and frantic. Then I renamed some of them when I realized some were almost exclusively a particular sub genre, and renamed some of them for that sub genre.. things like Trip Hop, Electro Hop, Dark Cabaret, Dream Pop, Electro Punk.. I can't think of what else but there were a lot..
I also was trying to encourage the algorithm to play artist only or as close to it as I could, by giving a thumb up to every track from the artist, before you added the artist only option, and I realized it negatively affected my thumbprint station... good news is I made it through my list of artists this week and cleared out the extra thumbs up.. yay.
I'm neurotic...lol. I've always been fascinated by Pandora's algorithm and try to see what it can do under different conditions, like a station with over 6000 seeds, which had pretty interesting results, but became nearly impossible to load the station details.. I don't need that one. LOL
@DavetheDefiant I completely understand where you're coming from. Looks like you had many deleted stations. I can see that you've created over 2000 stations since 2010. For this amount, I would need station names to restore some of them.
In the meantime, I've restored the following:
If you can think of any other names, I can search for them to restore for you. 🎧
Hey there, @YoungE. 👋
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Thanks so much for posting about this.
I look forward to hearing back! 🎧
Hi there, @Larjan14. 👋
Sorry to hear that you're also experiencing this. Based on your message, it sounds like you've already tried out the troubleshooting steps: Android Troubleshooting
Can you send over a bit more info about your device?
Let me know, and I can report this over to our engineering team. 🎧
As the title says. I am on Pandora 2102.1.1 with a Samsung Galaxy S20plus and the songs just buffer for a few seconds and then skip to the next one. I have cleared data, the cache, and uninstalled/reinstalled the app.
I have also tried wifi and mobile data and neither works.
I have a good connection because I can easily steam HD video with no issues.
Hi there, @jcellington. 👋
Thanks so much for posting about this, and sorry to hear that you're having trouble.
I will definitely report this over to our engineering team.
Would you mind sharing a few more details about your device?
Thanks so much for your help with this. 🎧
I just started experiencing the buffering skip issue since thing this afternoon. This happens on Wifi or Data. I am running the latest Pandora app available on the Google Play Store. one interesting thing is that I can still connect and hear the commercials and the artists messages without issue, this is only the music I cannot connect and hear. I have tried all troubleshooting steps to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a Huawei Mate SE running Android version 8.0.0 (latest they have available).
Hi there, @panthius. 👋
I've taken a deeper look at your Pandora account.
When this happens, we automatically disable access to Pandora for a period of time.
In the meantime, could you try again and let me know if you continue to have trouble with this?
Thanks for your patience during this process. 🎧
This issue continued to happen until I disabled mobile data on my phone. Once I essentially forced wifi to be used, this issue was no longer experienced. I was then able to enable mobile data and everything continued to work whether on wifi or out and about in the world connected to my mobile provider.
Thank you for the response.
I don't have this issue with other apps that are for music. A couple of days ago I was able to play Pandora at my Job so we are using WIFI but now it just buffers. But I'm able to play Pandora at home on my WIFI and my data in the car.
I have also uninstalled/reinstalled. I also cleared the cache a couple of times. Even logged out and logged back in. I even just updated to the new version that is out today and still nothing. Here is my information for my phone:
Are you connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data when this is happening? Yes
Have you received any error messages other than buffering? No error messages just buffers and changes song every second
Android version (Settings > About Phone): 11
Pandora version: 2104.1
