RESOLVED: 08/18/21 - Shuffle doesn't play songs from all selected stations

Local Performer

I have 130+ stations in my collection - everything from African radio to opera, country, adult contemporary, Hawaiian, Korean, today's hits, hits for each decade, heavy metal, trap, etc. and still hear the same 15/20 songs multiple times in an eight hour work day. I deselected a few stations because it seemed like some artists played hourly - not a different song by the artist. The exact same song would repeat.

Hoped this thread would have the answer to the repetitiveness but no luck.

Agreed. It's absolutely terrible and likely going to push me to Spotify if they don't fix this. Literally two stations playing over and over and over.

Are the engineers actually "working on this issue"?

Are they too busy with other issues?

Is this a difficult issue to fix?

Is there an ETA on when Shuffle Options could work again? How long can these issues take to fix?

...Or are we just stuck with this as the new Pandora experience indefinitely?


Note: I do not intend to antagonize. I'm just looking for answers, given the silence.
