Desktop App: Periodically restarts a song while it's playing

wisepeppy
Diamond in the Rough

When streaming on-demand music, sometimes while it's in the middle of a track, the desktop app will suddenly stop and restart that track from the beginning. Happens fairly regularly (several times during a workday of listening). This is entirely spontaneous and not a result of anything I'm doing - it can happen when I'm not even touching the mouse or keyboard, so it's no accident. v. 15.0.3.0

Not yet... I'll give it try and see what happens.

I did each of those (Windows) to no avail - the Desktop app still spontaneously restarted songs after trying each of those (resetting the app, then un/reinstalling). Could be coincidental, but it might only be happening on long tracks. e.g. I just watched it happen on The Background World by NIN (11:44) - the track restarted around the half-way mark.

Hi, @wisepeppy. 👋

Thanks for following up with that information. I can share your feedback with our tech team for you. It's helpful to know these additional details:

  1. Make and model of your device:
  2. Mode: Desktop or Tablet?
  3. Network (Wi-Fi or 3G/4G/LTE):
  4. Pandora version (under Pandora Settings on the bottom left):
  5. Windows version & build:
  6. Are there any error messages? If so, what do they say?
  7. Are you able to stream Pandora normally through a web browser like Chrome or Firefox?

Let me know. 🎧

4th time trying to post this reply - it keeps disappearing... trying a different browser:

1. Lenovo Thinkpad X12
2. Mode... of the application?  The X12 is a tablet which I'm using on a dock as a 'desktop' PC. The Pandora app is the desktop version from the Microsoft Store, used in its... default mode?
3. Wi-Fi (blazing fast fiber internet w/ rock solid service)
4. 15.0.3 (recently un/reinstalled)
5. Windows 10 Pro, v. 22H2, OS build 19045.4046
6. No error messages, the song just spontaneously restarts, as if I had pressed the 'track back' button myself. The issue does seem to be confined to just very long tracks.
7. Yes - I listened to a playlist of long (8-12 minute) songs yesterday using MS Edge, and it played fine. Today I tried the desktop app again, and about half way into the 2nd long song, that song restarted when it reached somewhere around the 5-minute mark.

Me too for about two or three months, possibly longer because something stopped me from using Pandora a year ago. Dell Inspiron 15 32 GB Ram, 512 GB SSD 60% full. None of this even matters because this is obviously bad coding on your part. Is it going to be fixed or do I publicly start a campaign to make the world aware of the problem? If I suffered in silence, I'm sure there's plenty of your other customers doing the same thinking it's their system of hardware.

I also have had this happen in the Windows app. No rhyme nor reason. It does seem to be longer songs, though.
