Sonos S1 - Problem connecting to Pandora

karendonna
Underground

Sonos App Info:  11.2.3

Sonos OS:  S1

Build 57381090

For years we've had no issues with listening Pandora via Sonos.

Over the past few days upon trying to listen to Pandora via Sonos consistently get 'Unable to browse music - there was a problem connecting to Pandora'.

We re-authorized the Pandora account multiple times.  We have paid our Pandora bill. Devices are on the same wireless.  Able to listen to both Radio Tune In and Apple Music via Sonos with zero issues.

Please help.

thank you

We have the same problem. I captured some packets and I'm seeing a lot of TCP retransmits to sonos.pandora.com. All other services play fine so I'm pretty sure it's a problem on the pandora side. I've contacted support and waiting to hear back. I have the pcaps if if helps their support.

Hi @Aaronzink and @karendonna! Thanks for posting to community and for reporting this issue with Sonos. 

@Aaronzink I see that you've emailed our User Support team. If it's alright with you, I'm happy to help here in community. 

I’ve enabled a trace on your accounts to help us better understand what’s happening. Would you both mind replicating this issue while the trace in enabled and letting me know the time and date. 

In the meantime, I've created a report and passed this on to our engineering team to further investigation. 

Thanks for the help and sorry for any inconvenience.

Having the same problem; "unable to connect to Pandora"  message.  It's been going on for a long time.  Are you going to fix this or do I have to change to Spotify?  Which I don't want to do.

I have the same problem: Pandora no longer works on Sonos. I've tried deleting and re-adding my account, rebooting devices, etc. Since we only listen to Pandora via Sonos, this has rendered my Pandora subscription useless. Pandora, help!

Thanks @TannerPandora . It's been broken for over 6 weeks and since Sonos is the only device I use Pandora for, I've found other services and will contact support for a prorated refund. I do appreciate your help but without a timeline I had to move on. Good luck on investigating the issue.

I am having the same problem using Pandora on Sonos.  I have tried all the same steps as rcaccia.  Assume I just need to use a different music software?  I hear that Deezer and YouTube music are very good.  Not hearing Pandora doing anything useful - so may need to change.
