I just upgraded to the Premium Family plan. I can invite my wife to join on the family plan but need to know if her stations, etc. on her current Plus subscription will follow her to the Premium Family account.

That has not been my experience. When I upgraded to family, my husband had to establish his own Pandora account (instead of using mine). So now his music is still on my account and his account has no stations. I want to know how to transfer his stations to his account.
Hey there, @Cinder. 👋
That is correct. With Pandora Premium Family, you'll get all the benefits of Premium for up to six family members at one low price. Each of your Premium Family members will get full access to Premium features, but they'll have their own account. (In other words, you won't have to share your music unless you want to.)
In the post above on this thread, the listener's family member already had an established account with stations.
With the Family plan, all six family members will be able to:
You'll also get exclusive access to "Our Soundtrack," a regularly-updated playlist created just for your family that combines each person’s unique musical tastes.
You can share music so that he can add those stations to his own account. It's often easiest to share a song, station, album, playlist, podcast or artist by searching for it (even if it's already a part of your collection).
I hope this information is helpful. 🎧
If I understand correctly and to sum up, A Family Account does not automatically allow access to each members "Collection" of Stations/Playlists/Albums/Songs/Podcasts/etc.. There is no option to listen to "Mom's Playlists". Any content must be manually shared through the method listed above and which can be done without the Family Plan. The main advantage to a Family Account is 6 people having Pandora Premium at a lower cost than each of the 6 subscribing separately.
Am I correct?
Thank you and I hope this clears it up for me and others as there seems to be confusion.
@begarvin The Premium Family plan allows up to six different Pandora accounts to join one Premium subscription plan.
So if you were to upgrade to the Premium Family plan, you'd then be able to invite your wife to add her own personal account to join.
As long as each of you are signed into your own separate accounts, all of your stations and preferences will transfer over.
Feel free to reach back out if you ever run into any issues with this.
Sorry...None of the sharing options work. I just setup the Family plan, and I cannot share any playlists or even have any of my family members Follow me so I can share with them. Even using the Copy Link option does not work. As soon as the other family member tries to use the link, the website just goes back to "you haven't added anything yet." Short story, your Family Sharing model **ahem** big time.
@plex6 Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening? Are you unable to share content from your collection on a computer or on a device?
Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
