Hey there, @Ryanjinhoking. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space.

If you'd like to remove a podcast from your mobile device:

  • Go to My Collection and select Podcasts.
  • Open the podcast or episode you'd like to remove from your collection.
  • Next, tap the highlighted check mark to the left of the play icon to remove it from your collection.

Hope this helps! 🎧

I have a Samsung Note 8 with most recent update. I have tried numerous suggested solutions but nothing works. There is no check mark to the left of the play icon for me to click to delete podcast stations. This procedure will work for music stations but not podcasts. Looking forward to a viable solution. Thank you.

@RDN Sorry to hear that you're still having trouble with this.

Let's make sure the Pandora app is up to date on your device.

Here's how to update the Pandora app on your Android device:

  • Open the Google Play Store app.
  • Touch the menu icon in the upper left and select My apps & games.
  • Apps with available updates are labeled Update.
  • Choose any appropriate apps and tap Update.

*In some cases, you may need to restart your device to update an app.*

Also, which podcast are you having trouble deleting?

Let me know, and I can take a look for you.

Hey, @sheripersell. 👋

I've had someone from our User Support team check on your account for you. It doesn't appear that you've collected any podcasts at this time. There shouldn't be a podcast to remove.

++

Could you share a screenshot of exactly what you're seeing when this happens?

To take a screenshot on your Android device, press the Home button and the Power button (on the right side of your phone) at the same time. You may hear a camera shutter sound (if your volume is turned on), and your screen will be captured.

To access your screenshots, go to the Gallery and look in the Screenshots folder. Send this photo as an attachment to your response.

Let me know so that I can take a look for you. 🎧

I've attempted to click on the button to the left of the play button, it 'removes the podcast from my collection", but it remains on my podcast list. I do not enjoy Don Lemon looking at me every time I open my podcast list and I want it removed! What can I do?

Hi @befitz5! Thanks for posting. 👋🏻

Sounds like this may be a caching issue. Please try the following steps to see if they help:

  1. Open your device Settings
  2. Tap Apps
  3. Scroll down to find Pandora
  4. Select Storage
  5. On the storage details page tap Clear Data.

Keep in mind that the steps for each Android device is slightly different. If you have a Pixel, you can find helpful steps here.

Please note that you will be asked to log into your account after completing these steps.

When you log back in, if the podcast is still there, can you please take a screenshot and share here. If you need help with how to take a screenshot, let me know.

Thanks for posting that screenshot, @rasuarezhernand.

I'm not seeing that you have any podcasts collected in order to delete one. You'll only be able to remove a podcast from your collection once you've already collected it.

To view the podcasts you've collected or to begin collecting, click on My Collection, then, click on Podcasts.

Hope this helps! 🎧
