Hey there, @Vs995child.

Is it possible that this might be occurring because there is not enough storage on your device?

Pandora will never use the last 500MB of storage on your device, so we will only download as many stations as we can before we hit that limit.

For Pandora Plus subscribers, we will automatically choose up to three of your most-listened-to stations along with Thumbprint Radio and add them to your offline listening stations. At this time, Pandora Plus listeners cannot add, delete or swap out which stations will be available for offline listening. 

In the meantime, if you're wanting to have other offline stations available to you, try listening to those other stations more (ones that are currently not on your Offline station list). Since we periodically refresh the stations that are available to you offline (based on your listening habits), we may surprise you with adding them to your list.

Hope this helps!

why am I only able to get 2 stations on my plus plan when it says you get 4? I use to get 3 and now only 2


Hi @Tlhowde I've moved your most to this thread because it sounds like you're having a similar issue with offline listening. 

If you haven't peformed any troubleshooting steps, let's give it a try to see if they will help. 

I'd recommend disabling the offline listening feature and re-enabling it, which will reset the download process. Then, make sure to keep Pandora open and in the foreground of your device while the download completes.

To do that from a mobile device:

  1. Tap the Profile tab and then the Settings gear in the top right corner.
  2. Toggle Offline Mode off, and confirm that you'd like to remove the content from your device.
  3. Toggle Offline Mode on again, to reset the download process.
  4. Keep the Pandora app in the foreground of your device while your offline stations re-download.

Let me know how it goes. Thanks for being part of community! 🎧

Log out and back in, fixed mine right quick. I had my 3 stations in 3-4 mins. Also I've never seen 4 stations, just three. Ever unless I pay for the big plan.

Hi @Steve60901 , 

For Pandora Plus subscribers, we will automatically choose up to three of your most-listened-to stations along with Thumbprint Radio, so if you are only seeing 4 stations when offline, then you may be missing your Thumbprint Radio in your downloaded stations, and you would need to add it to your collection.

You can find more info about Thumbprint Radio on our help page, including how to add it to your station list. 

Thanks for posting to community!
