Ad Feedback - Don't like prompts to upgrade


I am perfectly happy with the free pandora, complete with the ads.

#1: Now, how in the world do I permanently SKIP the upgrade request pop-up every time I start Pandora on my phone?? I have to constantly hit the SKIP button and I'm tired of it.

#2: How do I get the "weekly recap" to stop popping up? I don't give a **ahem** about a weekly recap of what I played.

For me, a promotion is an ad, and I pay to not have ads, so...

What the **ahem** is the deal with this ad to update to add free music a hundred **ahem** times an hour ?

How do I stop the trigger to join up with Pandora Plus? It seems to botch my experience of listing to my usual Plus account. I just want to go to my stations and make new stations and not get sidetracked into an experience that I don't want each time I go to Pandora.

Also,...I don't know who Karaoke Star is. My account is under the username of my email, and I made up a username to make this comment, because the program would not accept my email as my username.

@Sylvian Nice to see you around the Community.

Receiving prompts to upgrade to Pandora Premium:

We understand that ads (including those encouraging you to upgrade to Pandora Plus or Pandora Premium) can be disruptive to the listening experience; however, we hope you can understand that they're necessary for us to let people know that we have ad-free music options and a lot of other great new features. That being said, I've noted your feedback for our Product team.

This is by far my biggest complaint with pandora.  I already have Plus, I don't want Premium.  Why do you have to ask me every time I open the App to "Take it offline".  Just stop please!  I understand if the free people get the Ads but as a paying customer, I don't want anymore of your ads.

Pandora could definitely do better. Just saying, mix went to **ahem** because all you care about is dollars. It shows. Please stop advertising to me to buy more. I have been a faithful customer for longer than you have been alive. Have so respect!
