Apple Watch Won’t Sync


Hi guys!  I've upgraded to pandora plus in order to have my most used/recent stations available on my Apple Watch.

Problem is I can't get pandora to sync to my watch for offline listening. The tab on my watch most often says "Pandora will sync to Watch when located near your phone" even when my watch is exactly next to my phone.  When pandora finally does something on my watch it only shows 1-2 stations and stations I Never listen to.  

ive tried everything. Deleting app, redownloading app, unshow on watch, show on watch, power off and on watch.
Any suggestions?

Hi there, @Seadog71. 👋

Nice to see you around the community space.

I completely understand where you're coming from. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. Today we rely on Apple’s algorithm to decide when it is a “good time” to transfer the downloads.

Here are the steps we use to get downloads to transfer for testing:

1. Put both devices on chargers and close to one another.
2. Play Pandora on the iPhone.
3. Background Pandora on the iPhone. 
4. Launch Pandora on the watch and go to the Downloads screen.

Let me know if this helps. 🎧
