What do the icons mean?

What do the circle icons mean?  I'm a premium subscriber and I'm trying to download a playlist.  Some of the songs have blue circles with a check mark and some have green circles with a down arrow.  What do they mean?

NVM.  Took some work but finally figured them out and got them all downloaded (green).

Hey there, @susanjbritt. 👋

The blue circles with the check mark indicate that those have been downloaded for offline listening.

Your three most popular stations (along with Thumbprint Radio) will automatically download for you to access in Offline Mode.

As a Pandora Premium subscriber, if you'd like to download content for offline listening, you can tap the icon with the arrow pointing downward. This can be found on station, album and playlist pages, or, to download a track, tap the three dots on the Now Playing screen. Keep in mind, this button will only appear for eligible tracks.

If you change your mind during any point of the downloading process, simply tap the download button again, and we'll stop and delete any downloaded content.

If you lose connection while downloading, we'll save your spot with your partially downloaded playlists, albums and stations. The next time you gain a signal, we'll attempt to complete the download process for you.

Hope this information is helpful. 🎧

I'm a Plus subscriber. What does the green circle with downward arrow mean?

@OleG That means that station has been downloaded for Offline Mode.

Hope this helps clarify!

It means Pandora just used up all the available space in your phone against your will.

So it doesn't mean it's available for download, it has already been downloaded? So, can I play it without being online?

Also, I noticed those stations have only a few, 10 or less,  selections and some as few as 4. Even though I have 148 thumbs up across all my stations (120) the stations that Pandora builds for me to download only have a few songs. I guess I don't get it? When I'm in my car I'd like to play all my favorite music without having to pull over to change stations.

I also have heads up display which allows me to choose Pandora but I have to still sign in from my Android phone which is not ideal.

I'm lucky I guess because space is a non issue for me. I have a Galaxy Note 9 that has 512GB internal plus I have a 250GB SD card.

I only have 64g with 3g available now that Pandora has decided to take over.
