Android: Song in Playlist Plays the Wrong Song

Avalencia
Local Performer

A different song in my playlist plays instead of the one I chose. And the further down I go in my playlist, the bigger the gap is between the song I originally chose and the one that actually plays.

Hi there, @Avalencia. 👋

Based on your message, it sounds like this issue just started happening recently - meaning the song isn't labeled incorrectly in our system. It sounds like there's a glitch when you listen from your playlist.

I’ve enabled a trace on your Pandora account to help us better understand what’s happening. For this trace to be useful, we’ll need you to run through our troubleshooting steps here: Android Troubleshooting

If the issue persists after running through the troubleshooting steps, could you share more information about your device?

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?
  • Does this happen with one specific playlist? Or, any playlist that you listen to?

Let me know, and I can report this to our engineering team on your behalf. 🎧

I click on a song in my Playlist and it plays a song like 6 songs up. It has done this several times. Please fix! Android Samsung s20 ultra.

Hi there, @NicoleOro. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this. I've enabled a trace on your Pandora account in case we need to share this information with our engineering team.

From your Android Settings, please try clearing the Pandora app data using the following steps (not to worry, we'll keep track of your profile and collection for you):*

  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 check out Google's help page for steps on how to clear space on your device.

Please note that you will be asked to log into your account after completing these steps. Let me know how it goes. 🎧

*Pandora Premium and Premium Family listeners may need to re-download some of their offline content after this. Pandora Plus users, however, should receive that offline content again automatically. If you have any trouble with your offline stations after this, please let us know.

No that did not help. When I delete songs out of the Playlist and restart the songs come back. I kept deleting them and they come back again. I would press on one song and a song I deleted would play. I finally deleted my whole Playlist to start another. It's done it before several times as well.

@NicoleOro Thanks for confirming. I'm sorry to hear that those steps didn't help. I understand how frustrating this can be. I'd like to report your issue to our engineering team. Can you send over a bit more info about your device?

  • Model: Samsung S20 Ultra
  • 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?
  • Has this happened with any other playlist?
  • Could you confirm the name of the playlist that you experienced this issue with?

Once I have these details, I can share this with our engineering team so they can investigate further.

I really appreciate your help with this. 🎧

I have the same issue when playing from my playlist. This is a problem that has been happening for the better part of two years now. Please please fix this issue. Exactly the issue. You cannot force Pandora to delete a song off your playlist hardly. If the song does disappear the playlist behaves like it's still there and you select a song and some song further up the list plays.. 

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
