just upgraded to premium, and no equalizer function or gapless playback, am I missing something here, this is premium ? audio quality is really sub-par compared to Spotify. also, every time I edit or change functions or screens I get a break in whatever track I'm listening to, absolutely ridiculous, I mean come on, are you kidding me ?

@_gh1 Thank you for your feedback.

Equalizer and higher audio quality:

To express your interest in getting an equalizer as well as higher audio quality added to Pandora, I recommend giving a ❤️ to these two feature requests:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Gapless playbacks:

Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening? Are you listening to Pandora on a computer or on a device?

  1. If you are on a computer, are you listening from:
    • A Mac or Windows computer?
    • Our website, or the desktop app? If you're listening from our website, what browser are you using?
  2. If you are on a device, what is the make and model (and carrier, if applicable)?
  3. Is there an error message? If so, what does it say?
  4. Can you provide me with a screenshot/screen-recording of what you're seeing?

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

It would be nice to have an equalizer that we can adjust to improve the quality of the sound.

Suggestion was made to go to new feature requests to ask for equalizer for the volume of songs.  Some are very soft and some very loud so I am constantly adjusting volume.  This is especially a problem when I plat Pandora at night to go to sleep.  I see that other listeners have written about the same problem.

Right on. Come on Pandora! This was and is a big reason people won’t subscribe.  If I switch to Spotify without using their equalizer on the app it sounds clear and louder. Pandora definitely has issues with sound

I am wondering why does Pandora lack some basic features that was requested way way way back such as gapless playback
Controlling where you want the song to be
Better UI
Better Desktop/Website application
On the iPhone you can't even disable accessory mode! How is that intuitive to the consumer at all

I find myself liking Pandora recommendation but services that came after Pandora have these "basic features" that stray me completely away from Pandora. Pandora is being left behind and Pandora doesn't seem to be trying what so ever.

@Ramen I moved your post into this existing thread: gapless playbacks/equalizer

While this is not currently a feature, I recommend upvoting this existing feature request with a ❤️if you'd like to see it added to the service: Crossfade / Gapless Audio Playback

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Additional feature requests:

I recommend creating new feature requests for your additional feedback regarding the UI for our Desktop App/website, along with your feedback regarding accessory mode on iOS here.

Thanks so much for being a part of the Community!

Absurd that this feature has been on request for years now.  What's the story Pandora?  Too much competition to sleep on items like EQ and gapless playback.

Yes, please add gapless playback!  This is a basic feature that people have been used to since the days of records, tapes, CDs...

Why does online streaming with Pandora have less quality when it comes to this basic feature of the music listening experience that we've had for decades?
