Welcome to the community, @Jazina!

I can definitely help you edit the Thumbs associated with your station.

If this happened during your current listening session, all you need to do is un-Thumb the track. From your Now Playing screen, swipe the album art from left to right until you see the track you're looking for, and tap the highlighted thumb icon.

If this happened in a previous session, you'll need to visit the station's "backstage page" to make that change.

Here's how to edit thumbs from the backstage page:

  1. From My Collection, visit your station list.
  2. Tap on the name of the station you'd like to edit.
    • If you're a Pandora Premium subscriber, this will take you directly to the station's backstage page.
    • If you're a free listener or Pandora Plus subscriber, this will start your station, so tap either the Thumb or small "i" icon in the upper right corner of your screen to continue to the station's backstage page.
  3. From the station's backstage page, tap on the Edit icon (the small pencil to the left of the play button) to edit your station.
  4. Scroll down to either your Thumbed Up Songs or your Thumbed Down Songs.
  5. Tap the 'X' beside whichever thumb ratings you'd like to remove.

Hope this information is helpful! 📲

Thanks. What does one do if the mistakenly "thumbs upped" tune is not in one's collection? Why can't the thumbs up and thumbs down lists be edited in one's profile?

Hi, @jmoriart. 👋

In order to edit your thumb feedback, you would need to visit the station in which you gave the Thumbs Up or Down. 

Here's more information about how your feedback works, and how to edit thumbs.

Your profile shows a list of all thumbs up songs across all stations. Editing your thumb feedback from your profile isn't a feature of Pandora at this time. If you'd like to see this option implemented, feel free to create a feature request. 

Thanks so much for posting on the Pandora Community! :pandora:

I hold my cell phone in my left hand and find I accidentally hit the Thumbs Down button, forcing me to swipe right, so I can change my rating and listen to the song that was playing.  I want Pandora to move the Thumbs Down button so it can't be accidentally enabled.

I feel you hid my request in another issue that has already been resolved! No one will see my request to move the Thumbs Down button.

Hello. Thank you for posting this.   I am a Pandora Plus listener. I do not see a small "i" on my Android app.  The desktop app has an "i" (Info & Options) choice, but then there is no little "pencil" next to any button.  And there aren't any other paths to lead me to editing any thumbs options.  I also checked the web version and cannot find any way to view my Thumbs Down list.  

****UPDATE SOLUTION**** (Pandora Plus)

For anyone as frustrated as I was.... go to the WEB SITE (Pandora.com), and do THIS:

1. Pandora.com

2. Log In

3. Click on "My Collection" (top left)

4. Choose  (click on) Station where you want to edit the Thumbs] 

5. SCROLL DOWN until you see "Thumb History"

6. Look to the right and you'll see a blue highlight around a "Thumbs UP" icon (with a number of songs you've given Thumbs Up).    CLICK ON THE THUMBS DOWN Icon.  It will turn blue (highlighted).  

7. Look for the song you want to "undo". Hover your mouse over the song and 3 DOTS will appear on the far right.  Click on those dots and the option to "Delete" will appear.

8. Delete that song from the Thumbs Down list.   I assume this deletes the song from the Thumbs Down LIST and not from your station.

I hope this helps someone else.

Hi there, @Storyrussell. 👋

Thanks for posting about this.

Did you give this song a Thumbs Down 👎on one of your stations? If so, you can edit your Thumb feedback for that specific station.

If this happened during your current listening session, all you need to do is un-Thumb the track. From your Now Playing screen, swipe the album art from left to right until you see the track you're looking for, and tap the highlighted thumb icon.

If this happened in a previous session, you'll need to visit the station's "backstage page" to make that change.

Here's how to edit thumbs from the backstage page:

  1. From My Collection, visit your station list.
  2. Tap on the name of the station you'd like to edit.
    • If you're a Pandora Premium subscriber, this will take you directly to the station's backstage page.
    • If you're a free listener or Pandora Plus subscriber, this will start your station, so tap either the Thumb or small "i" icon in the upper right corner of your screen to continue to the station's backstage page.
  3. From the station's backstage page, tap on the Edit icon (the small pencil to the left of the play button) to edit your station.
  4. Scroll down to either your Thumbed Up Songs or your Thumbed Down Songs.
  5. Tap the 'X' beside whichever thumb ratings you'd like to remove.

Thumbed Down songs that have this rating removed will go back in the neutral pot and should play on your station again in the future.

Hope this helps. 🎧

Thank you this helped a lot. I was irritated with figuring out the process. Google is not too helpful with this
