Hi there, @john20213. 👋

Thanks so much for letting us know about this, and sorry to hear that you're having trouble.

Since this is happening across multiple devices, there are two things I would suggest - device network troubleshooting and repairing your Bluetooth devices to refresh the connection.

For your Computer(s):

It sounds like the issue could be related to the network you're using to connect to Pandora.

Please 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.

If Pandora still isn't working, could you check if you're able to connect to your network using another streaming service, such as YouTube?

++

Repairing Bluetooth Devices:

Let's try re-pairing the Bluetooth connection between your device and the phone.

  • To remove the pairing, please go into the Bluetooth settings menu on your phone, find the appropriate connection, and select "Forget this device."
  • Once you've done so, refer to the owner's manual for your device for how to reconnect to your phone.

Let me know how it goes. 🎧

I am having this same issue with my desktop. Using windows 10. I reset my modem, still having this issue. All other streaming services work fine. 😞

Hi, @AmyBeeBee. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Could you share a bit more about how you're listening?

Are you using a web browser? If so, which one?

Or, are you using the Pandora Desktop App for Windows 10?

Do any error messages pop when this occurs?

Let me know. 🎧
