Android: Downloading podcast for offline causes crashing

CameraGuy2000

To whom it may concern; I've experienced this issue on Android for over a year now. I have a yearly subscription to Pandora Plus and have followed many podcasts on the platform, however, whenever I download a podcast episode, enter offline mode, and when I either turn my screen off or go to my home/app screen, Pandora crashes completely. 

This does NOT happen when playing my auto downloaded stations, nor does Pandora crash when listening to podcasts or stations online, only downloaded Podcast episodes in offline mode.

I've noticed many other users complain of this issue to no avail, however, I figured I'd give it a shot.

As for specific details regarding this issue, it happens on any offline podcast episodes, not certain ones. 

 

Phone Model: Google Pixel 7a

OS: Stock Pixel OS

OS Version: Android 14

Build Number: UQ1A.240105.004

Kernel Version: 5.10.177-android13-4-00003-ga7208022a7ea-ab10815828

Pandora App Version: 2310.1 (ANDROID-TUNER 23101040)

 

Thank you; I look forward to a speedy and helpful response.
