Can't "Search and play anything" with Plus

Local Performer

Why do I still get commercials when I select a specific song to play? For paying you guys every month there's absolutely no reason I shouldn't be able to listen to whatever I want to anytime commercial-free. I'll simply switch paid music services if this can't be fixed.

Hi there, @Akr305. 👋

Thanks so much for posting about this. At this time, I do see that you're upgraded to Pandora Plus.

With Plus, you get:

  • Ad-free personalized stations
  • Unlimited skips
  • The ability to replay songs
  • The option to download radio stations for offline listening

Premium subscribers receive all the same benefits, as well as: 

  • Listen to songs or albums on-demand
  • Create custom playlists
  • Download songs, albums or playlists for offline listening
  • Access Higher Quality Audio
  • Queue content to keep the music playing

You can find out more about the benefits of each tier here: Pandora Subscriptions FAQ


Premium Access:

With free and Plus, you're able to initiate Premium Access to listen to on-demand content. 

To start a new session, simply search our library from your computer or mobile device for a song or album, and click play. If you are eligible for a free session of Pandora Premium, clicking play will trigger a short advertisement, after which you can enjoy your on-demand content.
