Its 2021 and you have a phone app and a car app. These two things share the exact same emblem, so i presume both are in-fact legally 'PANDORA'
Yet, these two apps do not communicate/connect to one another. The bluetooth option plays the pandora music just fine, but i cant interact with the pandora songs being played - thumbs up/down etc
I have a LG G6 phone.
I have a 2017 WRX.
Pandora app is up to date 2105.1
Flipping the 'auto-start in car' did not work. Switching BT on and off doesnt work. Re-Pairing the BT doesnt work. Clearing data did not work. Clearing cache did not work. Those are all band-aids anyway.
I want a fix. Not a band-aid.

I've almost given up on listening to Pandora in the car because the Pandora setting on my car stereo has trouble connecting to the Pandora app on my phone and then constantly gets disconnected. That doesn't happen if I just listen via the normal Bluetooth app. Why is it so troublesome?
Hi @TechnoMom! Thanks for posting.
Sounds like you may be using PandoraLink in your vehicle. Can you confirm some info for me:
Use your mobile device only when conditions allow and as permitted by applicable law.
Hi @TechnoMom! Sorry about that. I some how missed your reply from before. 😔
There have been some recent updates to the app that may help with this. Based on your reply, it sounds like you're connecting to Pandora via CarPlay in your Mazda.
Can you ensure that you're on the latest version of Pandora 2104.1.1.
@TechnoMom Would you be able to share a picture of what it looks like on your cars head unit?
If you haven't already, I would try re-pairing the bluetooth connection.
To remove the pairing, please go into the Bluetooth settings menu on your phone, find the appropriate connection, and select "Forget this device." Then reconnect with your vehicle, for specific steps, I would refer to your owners manual.

This is what it looks like when it's working. It just doesn't work for long, continuously asking me to reconnect. And that wasn't even the song that was playing! That was the PREVIOUS song.
