I have a set of Samsung wifi speakers throughout my house. I have used them for years to play Pandora through the Samsung Multiroom app. Suddenly I can no longer connect to Pandora through that app. It tells me that there is no internet connection but that is not the case. I still have an internet connection and I know that the speakers are correctly set up to the wifi network because I can play music that I have stored locally on my phone. Is this a connection problem between the Samsung Multiroom app and Pandora?
It was back to working normally today. I didn't do anything differently. Really strange.
Thanks for letting us know, and sorry you had some trouble.
Sounds like you're back to listening without any issues.
Enjoy the tunes 🎶
I'm having the same issue today out of nowhere, I tried to sign in/out of Pandora, even deleted and re-downloaded the app still getting the "Unable to play this track" error??
Hey, @collierminerich. 👋
Just to confirm - are you receiving this "Unable to play this track" error message on the Samsung Multiroom app? Or the Pandora app itself?
Also, make sure your device has the latest firmware by checking for a new update. You can find out more about this by visiting the support page for this device.
If an update is available, try loading Pandora again once the update is complete.
Let me know how it goes.
in the Samsung app
everything is updated
I would recommend trying a few standard network troubleshooting steps:
You can also contact the manufacturer directly to troubleshoot your specific device and settings.
Feel free to let me know how it goes.
Pandora works fine on its own
MultiRoom works fine for everything BUT Pandora
I rebooted everything
Now when i try Pandora in MultiRoom it says "Could not identify your device ID"?
I know if you go to settings within the Multiroom app, you can sign out and then back into Pandora . . . maaaaaaaaaaaaybe that would help . . . . ?
My Samsung MultiRoom App stops playing music overnight. I play some soft spa like relaxing music to fall asleep. It stops every night by 3or4am for no good reason. It will play all day long during work hours though. Is this a sleep function or something i dont know about? Or how can i stop this from happening?
Hi, @collierminerich. 👋
Thanks so much for posting about this.
Based on your message, it sounds like you're encountering the timeout message when this happens at night. Do you receive an "Are you still listening...?" message? You may not receive this during the day as you may interact with the app more at that time.
The timeout message comes up when we detect that you have not interacted with the player for a while. This is in place to avoid playing music to empty rooms and helps reduce our streaming costs. Since we pay full royalties on every song we play, having a timeout interval enables us to prevent streaming endlessly to unattended devices. Ultimately, it allows us to maintain our current subscription prices.
When you encounter the timeout message, simply click or tap anywhere on the Pandora music player to continue listening.
Upgrading allows you to listen uninterrupted for longer periods of time. Pandora Plus subscribers have longer timeout periods than free listeners, and Pandora Premium subscribers have longer timeout periods than Pandora Plus subscribers. While you will experience fewer timeouts, the timeout policy does not go away. 🎧
I do not interact with the app at all during the day.
There is no "Are you still listening?” Message either
Maybe you should ask this question in the Samsung forum
