Offline content played when loosing cellular connection

Local Performer

I'm new to Pandora but am enjoying it. But I have one question that I can't seem to find an answer to. When I'm in my car listening, there are times that I loose the cell signal, and Pandora tells me it's switching to offline content. I didn't know I had any offline content recorded, and haven't downloaded anything to my iPhone 11. I mostly listen to stations, as opposed to individual artists or albums. Is there a way to control what stations are recorded for offline listening?

Hi @ivhs72! Welcome to community. 

Offline Listening is available to Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium subscribers. When you lose your mobile connection, Pandora will alert you with a notification to let you know that we are switching you to one of your offline stations. This way you stay connected to your music without major interruptions.

We will automatically choose up to three of your most-listened-to stations along with Thumbprint Radio* and add them to your offline listening stations.

Additionally, Pandora Premium subscribers, can choose which additional stations, albums, songs, or playlists are downloaded. 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 on your mobile device 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.

Let me know if you have any more questions. 👍🏻
