Thanks for your patience during this process while I was checking about this for you, @kcdubya

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 runs on Wear OS 3 which Pandora does not support. While you may be able to utilize the Pandora app on your watch, we can not predict the behavior you’ll experience and you may find that it does not function as well as other devices. In the meantime, I’ve passed along your feedback.

Hey there, @kcdubya. 👋

Sorry to hear you're having crashing issues while listening on your watch. I've enabled a trace on your Pandora account in case we need to share this with our engineering team. 

Let's try the following steps to troubleshoot the device (not to worry, your Pandora account and radio stations won't be affected):

First, update the Pandora app on your watch to ensure you are on the latest version.

Then, try listening to Pandora from your watch again. If the issue continues, please proceed with the following steps to uninstall and reinstall the app on your watch:

  1. Press the power button to find and open the Google Play store.
  2. Next, swipe down on the watch face from top to bottom. This will bring up a menu drawer.
  3. Select My Apps.
  4. Choose Pandora, and then scroll to the bottom and select Uninstall.

Once that's done, reinstall the Pandora app on your watch through the Google Play store, and open it to initiate the setup process. Please note that you'll also need to have your phone present in order to complete the setup process.

Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes. 🎧

Yah, I had already tried re-installing, but just to be sure I tried again.  Unfortunately, no luck. I can get it to consistently crash.

Have you tested Pandora on this specific watch?   As I understand it, the Galaxy Watch 4 uses a customized version of Wear OS 3 and I believe is the only watch currently using that version.  If I look on the About Watch->Software tab it shows a One UI Watch version of 3.0 and a System Version of 11.
