Android: Playback stops in vehicle

Local Performer

Only plays a minute then reverts back to choosing PLAY again, over and over. Happens in Camry, home or anywhere. Has worked for years in same situation. Android phone has been checked. Other apps work. Updated app. Then I deleted PANDORA and reinstalled. So aggravated. Any suggestions?

Hi @ViviB! I would try disabling any battery optimization settings. Sometimes when updating the OS on Android devices, the battery optimization on all apps may be automatically turned back on by default. This can cause performance issues or interfere with playback when the app is backgrounded.

Please try the following steps:

  • Open your device Settings and then Apps.
  • Scroll to find Pandora or use Search in the upper right hand corner.
  • Select Battery
  • Next select Unrestricted.

Due to the numerous models of Android devices, we are unable to provide step by step instructions for every device. Please look up the steps to manage battery optimization for the specific make and model of your device and disable this for the Pandora app if the above does not apply.
