Has anyone else noticed songs playing faster than normal with accompanying higher in pitch, like a record playing on a turntable spinning too fast? This happened last night on two tvs and my computer and Bluetooth was NOT involved. Thanks.

Hi @filbert! Thanks for posting.
I haven't heard of this before when playing music. Do you happen to know what station this happened on and an example of the song(s)? I can take a closer look at the content.
Can you also let me know the make and model of your TVs and computer? Thanks!
I am noticing that more and more on pandora. Classic songs I've heard my whole life, I can tell they are speeding up the play. Not enough to distort the song, as in your example of a record playing on wrong speed, BUT the songs tempo(?) is quicker. I know they started many years ago doing this with radio play and even some TV shows to be able to cram in more advertising time. I don't understand why they are doing this on Pandora as I pay for the no ads...unless they are doing to all songs to cover the subscriber who don't pay monthly and consequently listen to ads too.
I think it's an awful practice. People who don't know the original songs will just think that's the normal sound.
Hi @HunterT3001! Thanks for posting your experience to community. 👋🏻🎧
We don't alter music on Pandora from how it appears on the original releases. I'm happy to further investigate this.
Can you tell me a little more information?
Thanks for the help.
Hi @Prittykitten! Thanks for posting to community.
Does this only happen when using your BT headphones or on other devices too?
Can you let me know the make and model of the device you're using along with the Pandora version you're on?
What's up with the streaming apps on Smart TVs - it's like they are playing everything and a fast speed. Ever hear Pink Floyd FAST? Can't even listen anymore

Only our Sony XBR 55X700D "Smart" TV for me . WiFi everything else is fine all stations, all songs - started about a week ago and this summer it happened also. Blu tooth is fine, car radio is fine - over the phone is fine - ONLY on our Sony

Happened this summer also
I've also enabled a trace on your account to help investigate. Would you mind running through some of our troubleshooting while this trace is enabled.
Make sure your Sony has the latest firmware by checking for a new update. Then please try a few standard network troubleshooting steps:
You know - thinking out loud here - Our Sony just had a firmware update PRAYING to get APPLE TV but NO! last week and I bet we had not used it since then.
As far as I know the app came with the TV not a clue how to uninstall it We thought it was DIRECT TV thing since we never actually have logged in. We've always wondered how it knew our stations (not that it has all of them).
Will disconnect and connect at some point - time to reboot LOL Thanks
APPLE TV is awesome - best of the services but our Sony upstairs won't get it.
unplugged the modem and rebooted - no change - this all started after the latest firmware update last week.
Thanks for trying, @Grinder12000.
Just to confirm, the Pandora app is located on the Sony TV and not another device like DirecTV?
In the meantime, I've passed along your experience and info to our engineering team for further investigation.
I believe the app came with the Sony, we never downloaded it or anything. It's with a bunch of other apps we never use or don't know what they are. Just like our LG TV - never down loaded it or have never had to never log in that we can remember. That was why we thought it was a DIRECT TV thing
Its CERTAINLY not as good as our Pandora on our phones. Zero features, just a quarter of our stations.
Streaming Pandora Theivery Corporation to HomePod (orig) all tracks/artists def has faster tempo. I'm not even a music junky and I can tell it's faster. 2108.1.1 is the version of pandora on my phone. I pay.
I have been having issues with Pandora playing at 1.5 to 2 times the regular speed. Some of the songs and advertisements are distorted to the point of barely being able to understand the words. I am using the website on a Dell OptiPlex 3070 running Windows 10. I have tried playing via WiFi and via Ethernet. Neither makes a difference.
