How do I use "Modes" on a "Smart (dumb) Speaker"? In particularly if it matters, Amazon Echo.

I'd like to turn on Deep Cuts on my Roku Pandora app but I don't see a way to do this.   Is this possible?

Thanks,

Jeff

Hey there, @weedpeople. 👋

At this time Pandora Modes are only available on our website, mobile devices, and the Sonos app. If you're interested in seeing modes available for other devices, feel free to comment on this existing thread: Pandora Modes on Other Devices

In the meantime, keep in mind that if you Thumb using while listening to a Pandora Mode, your Thumbs will carry over to your other devices. In other words, if you give a Thumbs Up while listening in Newly Released mode on the web, your station will learn that you want more New Music on that station, and you should see more new music across all of your devices.

Hope this info is helpful! 🎵

I'm trying to get Modes to work on my fire stick with my TV.  I made the stations via my laptop, and that worked, but when I put the station into discovery from my laptop, it doesn't seem to make the fire stick on the TV be in discovery.  It will do it on my laptop or phone, but not the TV, even though I created the station on my laptop.  Can't find a way to select Modes from the controls on the TV Pandora.

Bought a 50" Sony Bravia 'Smart TV' in 2020.

Also, a Pandora subscriber, $4.99 p/mo, no ad offering.

On my also new HP laptop, 'Modes' are offered, 'Deep Tracks' chosen and works well.

However, no 'Mode' is offered on Sony Bravia.

Emailed issue to Pandora, response was to 'enable' modes by hi-lighting 'My Stations, select 'Modes", toggle-on. Apparently, Modes may be toggled on/off; therein, lies *my* problem.

There's no such feature's offered by depressing 'My Stations" , my selected/stored stations, nothing else. No 'Modes' on/off or otherwise. Just my selected/stored stations.

Why Mode & its choices is available w/ HP laptop but not Sony Bravia, a genuine mystery. Frustrating too, as Pandora's CSR believes the Sony would/will.

Obviously I'm missing something, here. LOL

Any/all advise appreciated, the DT mode is wonderful, would love enjoying it w/ Sony.

TIA, Straz

I would have thought there would be more replies to this thread.  Yes, I myself would love to see Pandora modes on Roku.

Hey Alyssa - can you please let us know WHEN modes will be added to the Roku app?   Is this feature on the roadmap and if so, when?   I really like Deep Cuts and Discovery modes and it's a bummer that they are not available on the Roku app.

Thanks!

How do I turn on Pandora Modes when accessing via Roku to listen on my TV which is hooked up to my stereo.?  The Modes feature works just fine when accessing on my PC, but the mode is not saved when listening via Roku, nor is the Modes feature even displaying.

Does anyone know if Modes (i.e. "Discovery", "Deep Cuts", etc) is supported when using Pandora on Google Home/Nest or Amazon Echo?   And if so, what would be the voice command to play a station in a Mode?

Does the Roku app not have modes? In the iOS app, I used Deep Cuts a lot. I recently started using the Roku app and cannot find any way to switch modes. 

I would also like to be able to turn off the album cover display enlarging and taking up the entire screen.

Thanks.

Hi @Thorzdad! Thanks for posting.

I moved you over to an existing thread - Pandora Modes - Not all devices. Check out the accepted solution above for more info. Currently, modes is available on mobile devices, web and Sonos. I also have some additional info on modes you can read about here

While turning off album art is currently not a feature of Roku, the best place to post this idea is on our Feature Request board

I use Pandora often but I find it to be very repetitive.  How can I get the "Tune your station" settings such as "Discovery", "Newly Released" and others to be applicable on my iPhone/Car Play and even using my Amazon Alexa.

I rarely use my computer to listen and immediately I hear new songs by using other settings.

Anybody know how to get this to happen on my iPhone?

@TannerPandora ,  I do not see any way to access "Tune your Station" like "Discover" or "Deep Cuts" via my iPhone (mobile device).

Hi @sbennet5!

After you start a station, you should see at the top of the station, under the name, "My Station" with a down arrow. Tap on the arrow and it should open up Modes.

Some things to keep in mind...

- Pandora modes may not be available on every station.

- Since licensing regulations require a Pandora Premium subscription in order to be able to listen to your station in "Artist Only" mode, free listeners and Pandora Plus subscribers will be able to view an advertisement in order to initiate a complimentary Premium Access session. Those that do will also have access to Pandora Premium's other features during their Premium Access session.

- Whatever Mode you choose, make sure you continue to use your Thumbs. Thumbs will continue to influence your station regardless of what Mode you're listening in. So giving a Thumbs Up in Newly Released Mode will tell My Station to play more new music for you. As always, you have the ability to edit any unwanted Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down in your station details.

Protip - Modes - iOS - location.PNGProtip - Modes - iOS - options.PNG

 

If you continue to have trouble, can you share a screenshot of what you're seeing and give me an example of station you're trying to start Modes on?

Thanks!

I don’t see an option under my music to add deep cuts to a station I’m subscribed to, is there an option to do that on Roku or a way to change it?
