How do I view my (relatively recent) play history?

While doing housework, I was grooving on a great song from Alison Krauss that I hadn't heard in a while (probably because I hadn't played that station in a while) and noticed I hadn't thumbed it up yet. About that time I lost my wi-fi and Pandora switched to one of my offline stations. I rushed back to my wi-fi reception area, frantically switched back to the original channel and, of course, Pandora starts playing another song and has lost my recent history for that station.

I've searched as best I can and can't find any way to view my play history other than the current session of the current station! Seems like this should be a basic function. Am I missing something?

@frappyjohn We don't actually save a list of songs from each of your listening sessions, as this would use a lot of memory.

However, you can scroll back through your current listening session to view the recently played tracks. From the Now Playing screen, swipe right to scroll through previously played songs.

If you are hoping to get a feature added where Pandora saves a longer list of your recently played music, then you can create a feature request for that suggestion here.

Not quite buying this answer as YouTube is able to easily show a list of every video I've even partially watched (even ones I click on by accident) , and they've figured out a way to keep track of that info and make it available to each enduser....

totally agree.

lamest answer ever.

being able to simply review every song i've listened to, by day for the past month, would be AWESOME.

i'd love to be able to see the list of songs i listened to last saturday, so i could go try to find the tabs or chords.  i discover so much new music using pandora - NOT having this feature may encourage me to quit paying for it and move to a service that does have an easy-to-use history feature.

Storing a JSON list  of artist : song takes a lot of memory? If yo you're doing it wayyyyyyy wrong. That's a ridiculous excuse considering how cheap storage is and how little data actually needs to be stored.

I'm looking for a song that was on last week's Experimental Rock station, now its gone! Is there a way to search for previous playlists in this category?

Not buying this. Scrolling through your recently played music used to be a thing. Granted I've been using pandora for give or take over a decade but it definitely was a thing at some point. For what ever right, wrong or indifferent reason it's not anymore. This is supposed to be a music discovery platform. How are we supposed to discover music if I can't go back and see what songs have played over time. It's not realistic to have to run to the device to thumbs up the song for every new one I hear. You have my vote to bring this feature back.

I am looking for the name of a song I heard this past Tuesday around 3:30 pm on Pandora.

It contains the words muddy water or muddy river and is a rock/metal song.

Thanks!

Today I logged into my Pandora  Account for the 1st time in years.I remember that I was in love with many songs that I used to listen to on Pandora years ago. But I don't remember the names of many of them nor the radio station they were on. For example, I remember one of the songs had the word "April" in the title but I don't  remember what station it was on, nor the artist's name. Is  there any way to see all of the songs that rotate on each station, or a history of the songs I listened to going back years, or do I have to listen to all my stations 1 by 1 until I hopefully find the song? Thanks for anyone who replies.

@MusicFan00911 A history of songs you've played will be created during each of your listening sessions.

For example, if you select a station to play on the computer, as additional songs play, they will continue to be saved in your recent history on the Now Playing screen.

See this screenshot - this is the second song that has played so far in this listening session - behind this track you can partially see the album artwork of the track that played before this one did.

If you click on that white space behind the album art, it will then bring up that previously played track.

While I don't have screenshots of this process on mobile, it works similarly. After you have listened to multiple tracks in the same listening session, if you navigate to the now playing screen, you can swipe to the left or to the right to view what tracks played in that same session.

Hope this helps!

But now you do have a history, at least in a station session.  It's wonderful!

I heard a song last night 4/21 between 9pm to midnight eastern on the station that is by the band, Best Coast. Is there away to see a playlist from that time?  

Thanks,

Flash71, Im not sure if this is any help but I figured what the hey. In the search bar I typed in Best Coast. Once they turned up I clicked on Stations, they came up Best Coast Radio. I hope it was something you were looking for. Take care.
