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.

This is a great response, dude. I see that you used to be an active member and contributed a bunch of great observations. Why aren't you commenting any more?

Same for me, twinpeaks1965. Other than 12 pages of asking individual customers to spend their own valuable time sending screenshots, I can't see that any action has been taken, and the problem doesn't seem to be any closer to being solved in 2024 than it was when it was reported back in 2021.

At least the forum allows us users to identify that "this isn't the solution," which is a great feature.

I took a trip to Mexico in 2021 at which I never played anything in spanish i played my normal music. Since that trip pandora thinks i speak spanish and now shows only and plays only spanish ads which is frustrating. At one point when i returned to the US Pandora app had to changed my app language too. Im using a mobile phone. I was able to fix the language of the app back to english but Is there a fix to change the advertisements back to english.. i cant understand the ads..

@usgodsson I moved your post over to this existing thread: Ad Feedback - Spanish Ads

If you are receiving Spanish ads on your account, we're happy to look into it for you.

The next time a Spanish ad plays on your account, please send over:

  • a screenshot of the Spanish ad
  • the date and time that ad played on your account
  • the name of the station or podcast you were listening to when that Spanish ad played

Thanks for working with us on this.

I’m over being patient with the Spanish ads.  PLEASE FIX!  I used to love listening to Pandora but this has me wanting to switch to Amazon, Spotify or iHeart.  I’ve been listening to Happy station, but it happens on all of them.

Why do I have Spanish commercials.  I don't want them in Spanish and I have everything set in English

Lose the spanish ads!!!

You should have a language preference (or screw that language) button so we only have to listen to commercials in our own language that we can understand!  It wouldn't take much for your code-writers to accommodate us as it is apparent that many of us have complained about this obtrusive annoyance!!!!   -and we shouldn't have to provide you a screen shot of anything--you know you have the $%#@ spanish ads!!!

Well, it's now 2024 and I hear more Spanish Ads than ever.  Might have to just stop using Pandora.  It's not like these ads that I don't understand are doing any good for the seller than annoy people that used to love Pandora radio....I get that Pandora has to pay the bills, but these spanish ads are driving me nuts.

Your solution doesn't really make sense. I have NO spanish stations and I'm not spanish. Spanish speakers should opt-in to spanish ads. This is an English speaking country.

Where do we send info to get the Spanish ads take off our profile?
