CarPlay: Pandora automatically launches

This did not work for me. It still opens up constantly. Upon connecting, then upon closing the app. It won't go away. I have unchecked "Enable Launch from Car" under "BluetoothDevices" in the Advanced Settings. What now?

Hey Pandora, listen to what this person is saying! We are tired of being told to change the settings. We have all changed our settings. They have nothing to do with the problem!

Heโ€™s asking a great question Pandora. When the heck are you going to address this?

This solution does not work

Is there a solution?  I may just delete Pandora.

Honestly I donโ€™t know, I ended up deleting the app entirely 2 years ago since I hadnโ€™t been using Pandora much anyway.  My guess is there isnโ€™t one seeing as how as of this past December people still are having issues. It seems like Pandora just isnโ€™t compatible with car stereos

I am unaware of any solution. It continues to interrupt everything I do when itโ€™s plugged into CarPlay. The main problems seem to be any on Subaru GMC and Jeep. I donโ€™t know why the Pandora engineers canโ€™t fix it โ€“ itโ€™s just a little simple app and thereโ€™s not another app in the world doing it. It canโ€™t be that freaking hard. So far Iโ€™ve hung onto Pandora only because Spotify is so much more expensive and Iโ€™ve been building playlists on Pandora for something like 10 years. And I have a really good collection of my own personal music. It happens so often now I just automatically click the little back arrow at the upper left corner of the iPhone screen and move on. Itโ€™s not acceptable at all and it does make me wonder if Pandora is even a viable business anymore.

Itโ€™s a problem on most cars I thinkโ€ฆmy previous car was a 2013 Nissan Altima and I had this problem from the very beginningโ€ฆthis issue goes back over 10 years now. If I remember correctly it would work as intended after app/software updates on iOS but then the same thing would happen again after awhile.  When it started happening in my new car I just got rid of the app

Apparently the new update wiped my disabling of Pandora in Car Play. Almost got completely lost (again) because I couldn't load my map.

This is a severe safety hazard. How has it gone on so long?!?!?!?!?

Same issue that only started last week - every single time I get in the car, Pandora automatically opens on the iPhone and connects to Bluetooth; since I haven't actually opened the app on my phone, I can't close it - I do NOT have CarPlay...deleted Pandora until it's fixed:

iOS 16.6

2016 Nissan Leaf

OEM stereo

I have a paid subscription but I still deleted pandora app. Canโ€™t take it one more second. Iโ€™ll try logging in thru a browser but odds are I wonโ€™t be using it much anymore for anything and eventually will cancel.

Use the app in YOUR CAR'S CONSOLE. No other option.

Apparently not. I deleted Pandora for a while. Decided to download again so I could listen to music at work. I can't get my car to stop playing Pandora now!

PLEASE FIX THIS!!! 
it is now 2024. This has been an ongoing problem for years! We all have turned off car play in the settings. That is clearly NOT the solution.
