Hi there, @Epagent1. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. First let's make sure your software meets the minimum requirements:

  • Pandora iOS version 2010.1
  • iOS or iPadOS 14.0
  • Apple Home app
  • HomePod Software Version 14.1


If you're still having the same problem, then please try the following steps:

  • Check to see if there are any updates available for your HomePod and Pandora apps. Update both as necessary.
  • Restart your HomePod device.
  • Try unlinking and relinking your Pandora account.
    1. To unlink, open the Home app on your iOS device:
      • Tap the home icon at the top left of the screen
      • Tap Home Settings
      • Tap your iCloud avatar to view personal settings
      • Select Pandora and then Remove Pandora from Home
    2. To re-link, open the Pandora app on your iOS device:
      • Open the Pandora app on your iOS device.
      • Go to Profile and tap Settings.
      • Next select Connect with HomePod
      • Then tap Use in Home.

Let me know if this helps. 🎧
