Hi, @iannyce. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space.

You'll need to click on ✏️Edit icon first when viewing your playlist.

Then you'll see three lines that you're able to use to drag any songs you'd like to move within your playlist.

Let me know if you're able to do this. I look forward to hearing back! 🎧

I have, been with Pandora for about 5 years.  My home page where my playlist pop up; I want to delete a lot material that is mixed in with my playlist. 

Question:. (1) How do I delete old playlist or titles that are always there?

Question (2) sometimes I can delete a song from a playlist and sometimes can't?  Is there a place for instructions?

Question (3) How can I change the order of the playlist?

Whenever I go and visit a Playlist I attempt to edit the order, press the edit button and change the order,  and then save the edits. Whenever it's done processing it reverts back to Playlist screen and NO CHANGES have been made. Tried force closing the app, no change. Tried to remove the song and save, does no change. No edits I do are being saved. Seems like a wide spread issue on Android, please fix

Edit: I had to delete by swiping to select delete then go in and edit, make changes then save, workaround confirmed.

Maybe I'm missing something, but why is it not possible to delete songs from a playlist on the Android app? I have to start up my old computer and do it from the website and I feel like this ability should've been there from the start.

To remove multiple songs, tap the Edit icon under the album art at the top of the playlist."

You should be able to follow the instructions provided in the accepted solution to remove songs from one of your customized playlists.

If you are still unable to remove tracks from your playlists when following those steps, can you explain your issue a bit further?

Is the issue that after removing the tracks when following those steps, the changes do not save?

Are there any error messages?

Let me know.
