@danmichelinie Thanks for following up and clarifying that with me.

If you were charged within the last month for a subscription to Pandora through Google Play and are still hearing ads, you should be able to use the following steps to get your subscription activated and returned to your account:

  1. Open the Pandora App on the Android device you used to upgrade, and log into the desired Pandora account.
  2. From My Collection, go to the Profile tab in the bottom navigation bar.
  3. Select Upgrade in the top left corner.
  4. Finally, select Retrieve your subscription.

This should reapply your subscription to your account for you.

If you continue to experience issues with this, you will need to contact our support team directly for further assistance.

@danmichelinie I moved your post over to this thread since it does look like your account was previously upgraded through Apple: Still getting ads with subscription through Apple

If you were charged within the last month for a subscription to Pandora through Apple and are still hearing ads, you should be able to use the following steps to get your subscription activated and returned to your account:

  1. Start by opening the Pandora app on your iOS device, and going to the Profile tab.
  2. Select Upgrade.
  3. Scroll to the very bottom of the screen and tap Retrieve Your Subscription. You may need to enter your iTunes password to confirm.

This should reapply your subscription to your account.

If you continue to experience issues with this, you will need to contact our support team directly for further assistance. 

Let me know how it goes.

Hey Adam, while it was once subscribed through an iOS device, that's since been cancelled.  I re-subscribed to Pandora Plus through the app on my Android. Paid through Paypal. Payments have been going through, however the plan (on all devices) appears to be basic... help please

Hi there, @braxtondonyetta. 👋

Sorry for any trouble you've experienced. I moved your post over to this existing thread: Still getting ads with subscription through Google

From my end, it looks like your monthly subscription through Google Play expired on 04/08/2021. However, if you've been charged since that date, you should be able to restore your subscription to your Pandora account. If you weren't charged on or around that date, this means that your subscription expired and it would require you to resubscribe in order to continue receiving the benefits of your subscription.

For more information about how to restore your subscription through Google Play, please check out the accepted solution for this thread here.

I hope this information is helpful. Let us know how it goes. 🎧

I am paying for premium, and shows subscription as premium, but is still running as basic... Commercial and only so many skips... Why am I paying full price and not getting what I am paying for?

@Creepy_Elvis Could you confirm that you are logged into your upgraded account on your device?

Sometimes, it may help to sign out of Pandora, and then sign back in using the email address associated with your upgraded account.

If you are still seeing ads after confirming you are logged in with the correct address, can you tell me a bit more about the advertising you are seeing?

Is it for a specific brand or artist? Are you hearing them while listening to podcasts?

Let me know.
