Limit on Pandora Premium sessions

I often use premium listening sessions on my phone, but recently I found that there was a limit to it. What exactly is this limit, and is it on a monthly basis or total listening hours?

@infamouselijah There's a natural tension between valuable ad space and the listening experience.

Because of that, we're actively testing the length of these sessions to provide the best listening experience for everyone. As a result, the average length and availability of your complimentary session may fluctuate.

Due to licensing restrictions, we have to limit the number of Premium Access sessions per person.

If you're hitting a limit, it means you've used quite a few of these sessions lately. We're so glad you're enjoying the extra functionality.

I know that limits like this can be frustrating, so I'll definitely pass along your feedback.

Hope we continue to see you around the community!

Hi, @ngmarshall @micah15whitlow. 👋

I've shared your feedback with our team regarding your Premium sessions.

For now, I would recommend checking out @AdamPandora's message about this here.

Hopefully those sessions will be available for you soon.

Hi, @lflowers2. 👋

I'm sorry about the limit as I know this can be frustrating.

The number of Premium Access sessions per person is limited due to licensing restrictions.  In the meantime, you can see if you're eligible for longer trials or upgrade to Pandora Premium by visiting pandora.com/upgrade

Thanks so much for your feedback about this! :pandora:

Temporary Limit on Pandora Premium

Declan218

I don’t have a subscription of any kind, so I often search song and watch ads to listen to them. More recently I have been getting an issue where a song just won’t play, and any other song I click won’t play either. I can still listen to stations just fine. After my 30 minutes of Premium run out and I watch another ad, the songs will play. Does anyone know a way to fix this?

I’ve been using Pandora for a few years now, and recently I have been getting a pop-up when I try to watch and ad to listen to a song that says I’ve hit a temporary limit. It came up yesterday as well. Is this normal? Here’s a picture of what comes up
