I've been trying to add variety different artists to a different artist station to have more artists playing on the one playlist but it just has been coming up blank


I'm having the same issue when trying to add variety to custom stations as well on the android app.

Is there a solution for this problem yet? All I get is a Grey screen when trying to add a new band to "variety".

I'm having the exact same issue. None of the usual fixes work.  I submitted a support request 5 days ago.  Tried deleting and reinstalling the app just now, still broken. I don't know what else to do to get their attention.  I'm a software developer by profession so I know what's involved in fixing a "major loss of functionality with no workaround" bug.  This level of inaction for a paid app is unacceptable.

When I started Pandora one day I was playing a station and loved an artist. When I went to add an artist to the station. The screen to pick was completely blank all one color. So I tried other stations same thing. Then I uninstalled and reinstalled and yet still does it. Frustrates me cause I love huge stations. 

Does anyone here know anything please!

No error message or crashes just the blank, dark grey screen after clicking "+add variety" regardless if in light or dark mode. Log out, log in; uninstall, reinstall; clear cache have not fixed the issue that, for me, began 4(?) days ago.

I can't add variety to my music. I go to add variety and it goes grey. 


 this is what the screen does.

Same problem. Frustrating for a paid service. 

Local Performer

I have used pandora for years and have always been able to add variety to my stations. The tab for add variety is still there but when I click on it, no matter which station, it takes me to a blank Grey screen with no ability to do anything but back out. Please let me know how to solve this?

Geez Pandora folks, don't you think you should fix the problem by now?


It has now been 12 days since this issue began, 8 days since the last update. How long is appropriate to wait for at least another update or an ACTUAL solution to this issue? It's like ever since Sirius XM acquired pandora, Pandora services have plummeted in quality, are riddled with bugs, and seem to have been put on the back burner... Stating that we pay for this service and some of us have been dedicated paid users for over 10 years, like me and my family, I believe we deserve better customer service than this.
