I have several Grace Digital radios and it occurs on them also, so it isn't necessarily an Amazon thing.

I also have this issue on my Echo 4th Gen.

I do have Pi-Hole on my network, but I also have Pandora Plus subscription, so there shouldn't be ads in the first place? I'm not going to add exceptions to my Pi-Hole; I purchased the subscription to get rid of ads.

My Alexa just started doing the same thing! I’ve played Pandora on it for years, with Ads. No issues at all until the last couple of weeks. I have no ad blocker and it plays Amazon music with ZERO issues. I don’t want Amazon music. I want to play Pandora but it’s so frustrating! My husband has no ads on his Pandora but it still stops playing. It’s nice to know that many of us have the same issue but would love for this to be fixed.

I been having the issue with my new device but it never happen with my old device. I have tired all these steps but they seem to not work. This issue started 2 months ago and it's only the smooth jazz station that keeps getting disconnect not other issue from any other station on my account.

Yup same problem thought it was me but it only happens on my dot that I have connected to outdoor speakers. Plays for like 5 songs then stops. Been happening for about 2 months now. Never had a problem before, I use Pandora exclusively with out ads. Odd thing is it plays just fine on gen 2 devices. I can leave it on all day and it never stops.

@danielle_bouyer I enabled a trace on your account to help investigate. Can you please let me know the date and time this happens again?

Since you've done the troubleshooting steps already and they haven't helped, I don't have anything new to recommend. However, I can pass along your info and experience to our engineering team so they can further investigate. 

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

@PapaD I've enabled a trace on your account to help us better understand what's happening.

Please try the following troubleshooting steps to see if they will help:

  1. Check to see if there are any updates available for your Alexa and Pandora apps. Update both as necessary.
  2. Restart your Alexa device by unplugging the power source and plugging it back in.
  3. Try unlinking and relinking your Pandora account via the Alexa app.

Additionally, if you use a network level ad blocker such as AdGuard Home, Pi-hole, or an Eero router try  try adjusting your settings to allow Pandora or trying adding "delivery-cdn-cf.adswizz.com" to an allow-list even if you're upgraded to an ad-free subscription. 

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

I have. I run none of what you mention. I use a nighthawk router and this problem has only started in the last 2 or 3 months. I have been running this same setup for about 3 years and have had zero problem until recently.

@PapaD Thanks for writing back with that. I've sent this over to our engineers. This information is really valuable, and helps us determine what might be happening.

We really appreciate your patience in the meantime!

Problem still happening. This is really annoying. 

for the mean time I have switched to Amazon Music which is included with my Prime membership...I have had zero problem streaming music all day long. 

Is there any update for this?
