Android: Player Notification Drains Battery

Opening Act

I was in an earlier thread that Mods merged with a random music playing problem thread. The latter was solved and my issue seems to have been somewhat ignored, with nothing but another request for information from the mods. 

I am starting a separate thread because the old thread is still referencing the music starting problem's solution. 

When i close my Pandora app on either of my 3 phones (LG V20, LG V60, SAMSUNG XCOVER6 PRO), the app briefly closes, then pops open again without playing music. It says it is playing Unknown by unknown. This then heavily drains my batteries. 

I must go thru settings and force close your app. 

This has been going on for many months. Other people in my old thread have abandoned Pandora.  I am about to do the same.

Out of misplaced loyalty, i will wait to more weeks. If there is not a solution by that time. I am cancelling my subscription and moving to one of your competitors.

Based on your recent posts, it sounds like you're experiencing is the issue related to the persistent player notification indicated in this thread: Android: Pandora player notification appears when app is closed
