Pandora Update 10/01/19: Pandora Modes are now available on mobile!


@randyjohnstonus It's great to see you around the community!

 

Pandora Modes provide a great way to customize your station experience. There is a specific Pandora Mode named Artist Only that you may be interested in. 

 

Check out this help article for the full details on Pandora Modes and how to use it on the web Pandora experience.

NOTE: For now, Pandora Modes are only available on Pandora's website. However, we hope to bring this feature to mobile devices in the coming months.

I've been in an Avenged Sevenfold mood this week, and tried to listen to them alone on their station with the artist only feature turned on. But it keeps kicking me back into a playlist I made with them and about 5 other artists. I've deleted that playlist over and over but it refuses to let me listen to the Avenged Sevenfold station, and just keeps recreating that old playlist. I just picked up Pandora Plus a few weeks ago and it's very aggravating to feel like I'm getting less control over my music now.

Is there a way to limit a playlist (or station) to just one artist?  Thanks.

@mschannon I moved your post to this thread to keep the community tidy.

To limit a station to only playing the artist it was created from, you can utilize the Artist Only Pandora Mode.

Check out the accepted solution to this thread for more information on Pandora Modes. 

Hope this helps!

I upgraded to premium so that I could use the artist only mode. Now I read that there's no way to prevent other artists from being played on a station. Seriously? Then why is there an artist only mode? And why are you requiring an upgrade to use a mode that doesn't do anything?

@jfoiles Nice to see you around the Community.

Artist Only mode does exactly what it implies: plays only songs by the artist you used to seed your station (unless you've added variety to your station, in which case it will play tracks from those artists as well). This mode will only be available on some stations.

To clarify, are you having issues with one of your stations playing multiple artists when setting it to Artist Only Mode?

If so, what is the name of that station?

Let me know.

@jfoiles Can you please send me a screenshot of different artists playing on Artist Only Mode when you are listening to one of those stations?

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

You must have intimidated the stations into submission, suddenly everything is working as it should. I don't know what you did but it worked. Thanks!

I spoke too soon. If I play a station alone the artist only mode works, but when it’s shuffled it plays multiple artists. I've got some screen shots but the system isn't letting me upload them.

Thanks for following up and clarifying that with me, @jfoiles.

Unfortunately, there isn't currently a way to utilize Pandora Modes while shuffling your stations.

It will only work when listening to one station at a time.

I recommend upvoting this existing feature request with a ❤️if you'd like to see this option available: Modes in Shuffle customization

Hope this helps!

@ShaNiqua I moved your post over to this existing thread: Only listen to 1 artists' songs

To limit a station so that it only plays the artist it was created from, you can utilize the Artist Only Pandora Mode.

Check out the accepted solution to this thread for more information on Pandora Modes. 

This all being said, for complete control of what you hear on Pandora, try Pandora Premium. 

It combines our radio service with on-demand listening and allows you to create custom playlists, where you can pick and choose exactly what songs you want to hear during your listening sessions.

You'll also be able to navigate to an artist's page and play any of their tracks in our catalog that are available.

Use this link to learn about the many benefits of upgrading.

Hope this helps!
