If not, can you please do me a favor and send me a screenshot of the greyed out download icon you are seeing?

Thanks for all your help with this.

@Kic33 I moved your post to the Android space to keep the community tidy.

Is it possible that this might be occurring because there is not enough storage on your device?

Pandora will never use the last 500MB of storage, so we will only download as many stations as we can before we hit that limit.

If it doesn't appear to be storage related, I'd recommend signing out of the app and signing back in, which will reset the download process. Then, make sure to keep Pandora in the foreground of your device while the download completes.

If you continue to have trouble, check the download icon for the content you are attempting to download. The two rotating arrows indicate that the content is still in the download process and the highlighted downward pointing arrow means the content has successfully downloaded.

If the icon is not highlighted, try downloading the content again and keep the app in the foreground while your offline music downloads. Keep in mind that stations and large playlists take a longer time to download.

Lastly, if you are having trouble downloading stations, please try downloading a single track for offline listening to see if that works.

I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.

I'm dealing with the same issue, but all of the songs that were previously downloaded I cant download again. I cant rebuild my offline library.

@8gat3s Unfortunately, there isn't currently a feature that automatically restores your downloaded content for Offline Mode when resubscribing to Pandora Premium.

With that being said, I recommend giving this existing feature request a ❤️to express your interest in getting it added to the service as well.

We apologize for any inconvenience around this.

I understand that I cant restore all my songs. The issue is I dont have an option to redownload any of the songs I had previously downloaded. Example - If I search for one of the songs the download button is greyed out and not clickable. The songs are still in my collection on my pc, but they dont appear in my mobile app. If this issue cant be resolved I'm going to have to cancel my subscription.

Thanks, the trouble shoot worked. I just needed to clear the data from the phone and it solved the problem.

Thanks for the effort.  I can see my weekly playlists and play them online but they won't download.

@dchad  I moved your latest post to this thread as it sounds more in line with the new issue you are having with Offline Mode.

I recommend running through the troubleshooting steps listed here as they should resolve this. 

If not, can you please do me a favor and send me a screenshot/screen-recording of what you are seeing when you attempt to download those playlists?

Thanks for all your help with this.

Hey Adam,

Thanks for the  help with downloading. I got them to work, however, still no weekly updating for playlists.

Hey there, @dchad. 👋

I'm very sorry to hear that your playlists still aren't updating weekly. I understand how frustrating this can be. @AdamPandora has reported this over to our engineering team, and they are still working on a fix.

In the meantime, you can find the most recent update about this issue in this thread: Your [X] Soundtracks don't update anymore

I hope this information is helpful. Thanks for your patience! 🎧
