Android: Deleting songs from playlists

Local Performer

I have read allll the posts and done alllll the things over the last 2 years that I have has a paid version. No matter what I do, on my phone app or on the web, deleting songs from a playlist does not work. They continue to play even if they dont actually show on the list. Will this ever be resolved? Any new tips?

Hey there, @Simsonkn. 👋

Thanks so much for posting about this. Your issue sounds similar to this existing thread: Android: Songs Won't Delete From Playlist

To delete songs on your playlist:

  • Tap the Edit icon below the album art.
  • To remove songs scroll down and press ( - ) iOS or ( X ) Android to the left of the songs you would like to remove or swipe the track name left.
  • Tap Done (iOS) or Save (Android) to close out and save your changes. 

Lastly, if you edit your playlist from a web browser, those changes should be reflected on your mobile device. 


In the meantime, can you send over a bit more info about your device?

  • Model:
  • Carrier:
  • Android version (Settings > About Phone):
  • Pandora version (Go to Profile, then select Settings. Scroll to the bottom of the screen for the version number):
  • Are you connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data when this is happening?
  • Have you identified any other patterns or notable information?
  • Also, when you attempt to delete, does the song reappear? Or, it just doesn't delete?

Thanks for your help with this. 🎧

That is how I have been editing the playlist and it doesn't work.

Samsung S9+


Android Version 10

Pandora version 2209.2

I have tried editing on wifi and cellular

I will attach picture but you can see that I have deleted "Badfish" from the playlist and it no longer shows on the list. BUT it plays and from the playlist it is showing as a different song playing "come out and play". 

The songs dont show on the playlist for sometime but eventually show back up on the list.
