your account itself has the premium, so I don't think it is possible. your best bet is just to create an alt-account with a different email.

Hi @larrygogo! What kind of Google device do you have in your kitchen? Is it a Google Nest hub?

 

Thanks for helping out @ForgeMPH! 👍🏻

Any update to this issue? I have two Pandora logins and used to be able to link to my alt Pandora account on Google Home, and then sign into my main account on my Pandora app. Now, it always switches to the account that’s logged in on my Pandora app. I don’t want tons of random stations created from songs and artists that my household plays on my Sonos and Google speakers and added to my main Pandora account.

Hi @CriosaidhTX! Thanks for posting to community. 

Based on your description, it sounds like Google Home is authenticating your account based on your main Pandora account found on your mobile device through Google App Flip

If you have more than one Pandora account, you'll want to make sure that you have a unique Google account affiliated with each user. That's because each Google account holder can only link to one Pandora account at a time.

If you create these unique profiles on your Google Home, you'll be able to access the correct Pandora account by switching the Google account affiliated with your device.

Here's some more information about how to add an additional Google account to your device.
