How to Access "Deep Cuts" Mode

Hello, I'm looking to figure out how to access the Deep Cuts mode on my stations?

I have an Android App.

Where do I go to turn on the Deep Cuts mode?

Hey @Rmiles2257.  When you're playing a station in the Android app, you should see a mode button right below the station name at the top of the screen. It would be defaulted to "My Station". Click that and you can select "Deep Cuts".

Glad you're enjoying the station modes. I love them myself.  Started listening to "Discovery" mode on my Queens of the Stone Age Radio last week and heard a lot of awesome stuff I haven't heard before.  Was listening to that for 3-4 days straight.

Why does it say my station is out of deep cuts?

Hey there, @Ktuttle848. 👋

We did receive reports of "We're sorry there are no more songs available. Try switching stations." yesterday. A few other listeners mentioned their modes disappearing after this error message popped up. 

Are you still running into this issue today?

If so, which station are you having trouble with? 

Let me know. 🎧

Hey! What's the difference between deep cuts and discovery mode? I hear a lot of artists that I don't enjoy on my station, but thumbsing down the songs just changes the station in a negative way. My stations only play the popular songs by the bands I like, but I actually will listen to the artist's albums on loop. I'd like to hear more of the artists I like. Which mode is best for this? My guess was deep cuts! But I don't actually know what discovery mode is. 😅

Hi there, @JessyElaine. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space. Happy to help explain each mode.

Pandora Modes:

  • My Station: The station you already know and love
  • Crowd Faves: Plays whichever relevant songs are the most popular
  • Discovery: Surfaces artists who don’t usually play on this station
  • Deep Cuts: Delve deeper into the discographies of the artists on your station
  • Newly Released: The newest releases from the artists featured on your station
  • Artist Only: Only songs from the artist headlining your station. (Please note: You may hear songs from other artists if you have added variety to a station.)

You can continue to use your Thumbs when listen with any given mode. Thumbs will continue to influence your station regardless of what Mode you're listening in. So giving a Thumbs Up in Newly Released Mode will tell My Station to play more new music for you.

As always, you have the ability to edit any unwanted Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down in your station details.

I hope this information is helpful. Let me know if you have any other questions! 

*Not all Pandora Modes will be available on every station.

Great, thanks!  I just turned it on, but it skipped the song I was jamming to. Why does it do this when you switch modes?

@JessyElaine When you switch to a different mode, it changes over immediately. I would recommend listening to the current song, and switching over to your new mode once you've finished with the song you're jamming to. The mode feature doesn't act as a "queue" when go to switch over (where it plays the current song and switches after).

If you'd like to see the ability to switch the mode once the current song is over, feel free to create a feature request here

For more information about how feature requests work on the community, please check out this helpful infographic: "How do requests become features?"

Hope this is helpful and clarifies a bit. 👍

I don't see Modes on my Android App. Version 1812.2. Is this only available to premium users?  I have it on my Windows desk top but can' see it on my phone. My station also is not seen. Thanks

Hey there, @mloehrs. 👋

Modes are available for free and paid subscribers. Can you please send me a screenshot of exactly what you're seeing when you attempt to use modes on a station?

  • 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.

Thanks so much for your help with this!

Hi there, @mloehrs. 👋

Could you share a screenshot of what you're seeing when you attempt to use a mode on your station? You can find steps to take a screenshot from my message above here.

Are modes unavailable for all stations or just a specific one?

Let me know. 🎧
