Hi @Deadshot! Thanks for posting. Sorry to hear this.
Could you provide the following information so I can take a closer look.
Let me know.
Use your mobile device only when conditions allow and as permitted by applicable law.
2015 volkswagen gti stock radio and pixel 3 phone
Also latest pandora update Android auto bluetooth connection
If you haven't already, let's try re-pairing the connection between your car and the phone.
To remove the pairing, please go into the Bluetooth settings menu on your phone, find the appropriate connection, and select "Forget this device."
Once you've done so, refer to your car's manual for the steps to reconnect the car system to your phone. Using the Voice Commands for your unit (if available) is often the easiest way to do this.
Let me know how it goes.

Hello I've tried that a couple times and still doesn't work for me it doesn't come up on the screen as pandora being connected
@Deadshot Thanks for following up.
Does this only occur when connected to Android Auto? If you're connected via bluetooth only, are you still able to use the control to skip a song?
It only happens in my volkwagen it works perfectly fine in my gmc sierra no issues at all
Thanks for the follow up @Deadshot.
I've created a ticket so our engineers can take a closer look at what may be happening.
Just to clarify, your GMC also used Android Auto but the problem is only with your Volkswagen.
Can you also send over a bit more info about your mobile?
In the last year or so mine went completely unusable. I can only listen to Pandora with the audio source set as my phone. My car has a Pandora option that used to work, which is great because I have to thumb down a lot of stuff on some of my channels.
I drive a 2016 Mazda 3. I do not use Android Auto. My phone is a TCL 20 Pro.
Hi @Luthuana! Thanks for posting.
To confirm your experience, are you no longer able to connect to PandoraLink in your car vehicle? Instead you connect through Bluetooth or USB and control playback directly on your Android?
Thanks for the follow, @Luthuana.
I'd like to pass this along to our engineer team. Can you please confirm:
Thanks for the help!
I have had a similar problem appear suddenly, I am no longer able to skip songs or replay them via car controls across 3 different vehicles, connecting with either usb or Bluetooth. This has only begun within the last 10 days. Controls on those vehicles work fine otherwise and worked fine prior to this issue.
I have cleared bluetooth cache, and re-paired multiple times to no avail.
Pandora version: 2304.1
Android version: 12
Hi @Tehwanderer Thanks for posting. Can you let me know the make and models of the car. Are they all different?
Yea they're all different, one is a toyota yaris 2016, the others are large transport trucks i don't know the make/model of off the top of my head. And pandora previously worked with them prior to this issue.
