I haven’t seen a thread for this. I want to add what a great feature this is on Pandora! It’s a great way to discover new music trying different modes of a station. Thanks Pandora!😊

Can someone explain to me what is Pandora Modes?  I can't seem to find out anything on this.  Maybe a link somewhere would be helpful.

Thanks!

@JLaz Nice to see you around the community. 😄

With Pandora Modes, you can take your stations in a variety of directions*.

  • My Station: The station you already know and love
  • Crowd Faves: Plays whichever relevant songs are the most popular
  • Discovery: Surfaces artists who don’t usually play on this station
  • Deep Cuts: Delve deeper into the discographies of the artists on your station
  • Newly Released: The newest releases from the artists featured on your station
  • Artist Only: Only songs from the artist headlining your station. (Please note: You may hear songs from other artists if you have added variety to a station.)

Keep in mind that since licensing regulations require a Pandora Premium subscription in order to be able to listen to your station in "Artist Only" mode, free listeners and Pandora Plus subscribers will be able to view an advertisement in order to initiate a complimentary Premium Access session. Those that do will also have access to Pandora Premium's other features during their Premium Access session.

Whatever Mode you choose, make sure you continue to use your Thumbs. Thumbs will continue to influence your station regardless of what Mode you're listening in. So giving a Thumbs Up in Newly Released Mode will tell My Station to play more new music for you. As always, you have the ability to edit any unwanted Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down in your station details.

*Not all Pandora Modes will be available on every station.

Hope this helps! :pandora:

@Spaz1957 What is the make and model of the device you are using to stream Pandora?

Also, what is the name of the station you are listening to when the option for Pandora Modes does not appear?

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
