Hey, @Christian4. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble streaming.

  • Are you using a MAC or Windows computer?
  • Have any error messages popped up? If so, what exactly does it say?

Resetting App Data:

Have you tried resetting the app data yet? If not, you can see if this helps - I've included the steps below.

For Windows Computers: 

First, try resetting the Pandora app from the Help menu (not to worry, we'll keep track of your profile and collection for you). Press Alt on your keyboard to bring up a menu options at the top of the page, then select Help and Reset App Data.

For MAC Computers:

In the Pandora Desktop app, select Help in your top tool bar and then Reset App Data.


Network Troubleshooting:

You can also try rebooting your connection: 

  1. Shut down your device completely;
  2. Unplug your modem and router, wait one full minute, and then plug them back in;
  3. Wait five more minutes to allow the modem and router to fully boot back up;
  4. Turn your device back on and try Pandora again.

Feel free to let me know how it goes. 🎧
