This is very annoying. Apparently Pandora has more Spanish speaking listeners in my area than English. I get. Orr Spanish ads than English. 

that balcony about the ad operations team working on a solution. I have a solution - cut down the number of Spanish speaking ads.

Spanish Ads playing, but I am not spanish speaking.

Is there any way to filter out spanish ads that I can't understand because I am english speaking?

Hi,

Thanks for replying.  It seems to have magically fixed itself?  Because I've been listening for spanish ads since you replied and haven't gotten any more?  I'll ping you back if the spanish ads return.

Me too.  Most people in Colorado speak English not Spanish.  I find Spanish ads very annoying.  Put in a language selection!  Over a year since issue first reported and no advancement!

Give me a break! You call that a solution? How about a few simple profile questions under a menu heading called PREFERENCES?

Yes! I agree!!! Nothing is as bad as the Spanglish commercials though. If I’m listening to music I’m English, I don’t want ads in Spanish- Spanish speakers listening to Spanish music don’t want commercials in English either

It’s on the Alexa. So how do I screenshot? It is linked to my app but the app doesn’t play on Alexa unless I Bluetooth. So I just say “Alexa play so and so on pandora” and she plays it
But if I look at the pandora app a different song will come up so even though they are linked, they play independently
Does that make sense? So I can’t screenshot

@MomOfFour If you are unable to grab a screenshot, please make note of:

  • the exact date and time the next Spanish ad plays
  • the name of the station you were listening to when the Spanish ad plays

Thanks again for working with me on this.
