Selecting Offline Stations with Pandora Plus

I just signed up for pandora plus. Is there a way for me to select which stations i can listen to offline? It automatically selected 4 stations but the station that i really listen to was not one of the stations.

@mattreigl Thanks for sharing your feedback on the Community.

You may consider upgrading to Pandora Premium which allows subscribers to download any station, playlist, album or song in their collection for offline listening.

In the meantime, I recommend giving this existing feature request a ❤️ to express your interest in getting this added to the service as well: Choose your own Offline stations with Pandora Plus

Hope this helps!

it is truly pathetic that this cannot be done.  I can only assume that that people who run Pandora do not use Pandora themselves (maybe they use Spotify or Apple Music at home).   Who assumes that the stations you listen to the most (likely when you're on wifi -- likely at home) would be the same ones you would want to listen to when not on wifi (e.g. out running or in the car)?  I can't believe they are that dense, so I can only conclude they are not users of the service themselves.  this has to be SO easy to add as a feature.   

I've had Pandora for years and have an annual membership, but will be canceling at the end of 2021 if they haven't add the ability to choose the limited number of offline stations.   they have added so little increased functionality it's like they are begging me to move to Spotify.

So we do that and you pick more random stations so I do it again hoping for different stallions but you pick only 2 of 3 I want so I do it again and again and again. The fix is easy but you’d rather charge us to listen to your selections not ours. Do you just hate your customers? Is your business model: let’s make people hate us enough to buy an upgrade?

So if over years of listening I have hundreds of hours on a station I can’t get a new one downloaded for years? That sounds like what you’re suggesting.

And looking at my offline stations I absolutely know this is false. One of them has maybe two hours of listening and I’ve been a member for years!

Ive been deleting stations one at a time, until the station I listen to the most now, becomes my 3rd most listened to.  A minor frustration, because some family members use stations for sleep.  Hard to compete w that.

I don't know if this will help you at all but something I have found is you can add artists into a station so I have a cardi b station that I have almost 2,000 hours in on my account you can click and hold down the station and click edit and then you can add other artists that you would like to be featured inside of that radio station say I like have cardi b as the main sponsor in that radio station but I want to listen to Nicki Minaj I would simply just type in Nicki Minaj and add it as a featured artist in the radio station and lots of work around to get stuff that you like cuz you can add and remove people into that station so that's a workaround for choosing what you want to listen to

I know this is rather late but I had the same question. Only Pandora Premium subscriptions have the download button. Pandora Plus does not get the download option. Pandora will automatically download your 3 most listened to stations.

I have gone to the station,  clicked on what I think is the "backstage " area. There is nothing that indicates "download".  I only access Pandora on my Andriod phone.  I don't have a computer anymore. 

There are 3 stations loaded for offline listening,  but I didn't add them.  I can access them,  so that isn't an issue. 

Also,  how many stations can be downloaded per account?
