Ad Feedback - Spanish Ads

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.

WE ALL HAVE DAY JOBS, AND WE DON'T HAVE TIME OR INTEREST TO DO THIS TYPE OF DOCUMENTATION FOR YOU. 

For what it's worth, I haven't heard any Spanish ads on my usual stations since posting the previous screenshot on 2/27, whereas before they were guaranteed nearly every day. So, with my tiny sample-size anyway, it feels like progress is being made.

Looks like I spoke too soon... 😩 That Spanish-centric Instacart ad (where it's half english/half spanish and definitely not relevant to this area) popped up again on my Celtic station. 3/22 @ 1:58pm EST.

Same problem,  very annoying. Need to be fixed ASAP. 😫 

With all the other streaming audio options this might just be the straw that breaks this camels back.  Ads are annoying, foreign language ads add another dimension of annoyance. 

Simply add a preferred language or languages question to profile,  organize ads by language,  done.

Yeah, a lot of problems which have existed for years but complaints and suggestions for fixes (most of them simple) are entirely ignored.  Most likly Pandora doesn't even have a customer service person much less a developer to fix these issues.Sent from my T-Mobile 5G Device

@M19 Unfortunately, no additional work can be done to prevent that specific Instacart ad from playing on your account.

This being said, our Ads team is aware of the feedback you provided.

If any Spanish ads (other than the Instacart one) plays on your account, please feel free to let us know and we'll be happy to further investigate.

Yes it is very annoying - shouldn't you be a bit more selective as to the audience like if they are playing latin music or not?

Thursday, May 18 @ 5:02pm: an all-Spanish Gillette (shaving) ad just played via Pandora on my tv, on the "Taylor Swift Radio" station. It's a new ad; or at least I don't recall having heard it before.
