App Opens to Same Default Station instead of Last Station Listened to

padaco

I've gone through the app settings and I'm not seeing a way to change the default station, nor how to just have it go to the last station listened to (like it used to do), nor how to just have it not open a station but to put me on my stations list so I can tap the one I want.

Hi, @padaco. 👋

Thanks so much for posting on the Pandora Community.

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to set a default station on Pandora. It should be the last station listened to when you launch the app from your Android device.

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.

Let me know how it goes by responding directly on this thread. 🎧

Yeah....my Pandora always opens to same station. regardless of what I was last listening to. Whats it take to address this issue, since would like it to work as you have indicated, by playing the last listened to station when opening.

This happens to me too. Annoying, seems like a small thing that shouldn't be an issue with today's apps

Same here.  It is 2021 right?  How about an option in settings to set your default station, including Apple products....

I'm having this issue as well, but also on the Chrome browser on my PC. The accepted solution is for Android devices. It is also happening there as well, which means it's not my devices. The fact that it's a cross platform issue means it's my profile or the way the browser and app are saving the last viewed station to it.

I have a station to put my 2 month old to sleep with, a couple stations to listen to at work, and then my fun stations to use with my sub woofers. Putting the phone down by my 2 month old and turning his tunes back on only to be hit with a fun station that wakes him up is not fun. It's happened. I'll have been listening to it less than half an hour before and it switches. I've also had the WAY wrong song come through my speakers at work because it switched stations on the browser when I closed it for lunch. I've just gotten in the habit of making sure my system sound is off before turning pandora on no matter which device I'm using.

Over a year since OP and still an issue??  I have the same issue as previous post. Does not matter whether I listen on my android phone, Chrome browser, kindle, etc.

Let me guess... someone will direct me to another post in order to "upvote" it.

This issue stopped happening to me, completely randomly, I don't know why.

I don't listen to Pandora as much anyway, only partly because of this issue.

Considering this, maybe I should cancel my subscription. If obnoxious issues like this get ignored this long when they're still happening to people, maybe Pandora wants them to unsubscribe.

On both my Samsung phone (J3v 2018 model running on Pie) & tablet (Galaxy Tab A 9.7 running on Nougat) the app plays the first station at the top of my list of stations instead of the one I was listening to previously like it used to. Both the phone & tablet are up to date & have the latest version of the app. Did this happen because I recently upgraded to plus or is it a bug? What can I do to get the app to play the station I last played instead of the first station which now seems to be the default station that plays whenever the app is opened?

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. I moved your post over to this existing thread: App Opens to Same Default Station instead of Last Station Listened To 

At this time, there isn't a way to set a default station on Pandora. It should be the last station listened to when you launch the app from your Android devices.

Alyssa, I've noticed this happens when connected with a pair of bluetooth earbuds. Clearing app cache, data, and reinstalling the app did not help. Also a new issue suddenly popped up. It now started saying that my "internet connection was lost & it was switching to an offline station". However, I WAS CONNECTED to the internet nor did I ever turn off wifi.

I'm having the same problem.  Always defaults to Boom Box.  Favorite station is number two on my list.

I discovered that it happened when offline mode in the app settings was turned on. It stopped doing it as soon as I turned offline mode off and hasn't happened again since.
