My Thumbs Up Playlist vs. My Thumbprint Radio

Quizibo
Underground

So I just spent an hour adding songs to My Thumbs Playlist hoping upon hopes that they will be added to My Thumbprint Radio...

Alas, this logical step does not exist. Apparently you have to start a station based on that song, then wait for that song comes up, then "thumbs up" then it will be added to your Thumbprint radio...

Does this make any kinda sense?! Pandora... just please, and thank you for fixing this.

mod edit: changing title for clarity

Hi @Quizibo! Thanks for posting. I moved our message over to My Collection to keep things tidy. 

My Thumbs Up is a playlist that collects your Thumbed-Up tracks from each of your stations. When you sign up for Pandora Premium, we begin it by adding your 1,000 most recent Thumbs (if you have that many). Moving forward, every time you Thumb Up a song on one of your stations or eligible playlists, it will be automatically added to My Thumbs Up Playlist.

Unlike Thumbprint Radio (available at all tiers), which plays your Thumbed-Up tracks along with other you may like, My Thumbs Up playlists will only play the songs you have Thumbed-Up.

You can customize this playlist by manually adding or removing songs and your stations and additional playlists will not be affected.

If you'd like to see a new feature for Thumbprint Radio that includes songs from your My Thumbs Up Playlist, please visit our Feature Request board here

I used to have a station that had all my thumbed up tracks on one station. I thought this was the Thumbprint station. Maybe I'm thinking of another station that has been discontinued. I'd like to have that station back.

@LTSings I moved your post to this thread to keep the Community organized: My Thumbs Up Playlist vs. My Thumbprint Radio

Thumbprint Radio:

Thumbprint Radio uses your thumbs to create a unique listening experience. By playing both thumbed-up and non-thumbed tracks from across all your stations, we hope to bring you lots of your favorites while sprinkling in some new finds in a seamless listening journey.

I do see this station is already added to your collection - were you having trouble locating it to play?

Let me know.

I guess that's what I'm thinking of. I just know I used to have one. I thought it was a station though, not a playlist.

 What’s the difference between thumbs up Music and thumbprint music? I want to play my thumbs up I don’t know how to do it in my thumb print music plays a million songs and every once in a while I get one of my thumbs up I want to play all my thumbs up how do I do this?

@Tjlig13 go into your collections from there look at your Playlist you should be able to see your thumbed up music there, that is where I found my thumbed up music when I was looking for it. Take care and stay safe.
