Android Auto - Pandora launches when connected

Local Performer

My Auto-Start is turned off in my pandora app but it still automatically turns on when connecting to Android Auto. I also have the continue to play music function within my Android Auto app turned off. I don't understand why it keeps running.

Hi @clchecketts!

Does the only happen when connected to Android Auto or at other times outside of your vehicle?

In the meantime, I'd like to report your issue to our engineering team. Can you send over a bit more info about your device?

  • Model:
  • Android version (Settings > About Phone):
  • Build number (Settings > About Phone):
  • Android Security Patch Level, if noted on your device (Settings > About Phone):
  • Pandora version:
    • Open Pandora, go to Profile, then select Settings. Scroll to the bottom of the screen for the version number.

Thanks for the help!

Hi TannerPandora! I have the same issues as clcheckettes so i figured I would give my specs in case they didn't provide theirs 😄

  • Model: Samsung S21 Ultra 5G
  • Android version: 12 (as of this morning, 7/6/2022)
  • Build number: SP1A.210812.016.G998USQU5CVF1
  • Android Security Patch Level, if noted on your device: June 1, 2022
  • Pandora version: 2204.1 (ANDROID-TUNER 22041003)

and in case it would be helpful, I have an after-market radio in my vehicle which is when my Pandora auto-launches with no permissions to do so.

Mine does that too. It's very frustrating. I'll shut it down on my phone after it auto starts and it'll keep popping up on android auto and turn off my radio station. I have it turned off in the settings also. It shows on my phone too in the media output with no clear way to turn that off either. 

I have a Samsung Galaxy S 21 ultra too.

Please fix Asap
