Recently, when my iPhone 11 is locked and I try to use Siri to open Pandora and play a station, it says I need to unlock my phone first. I used to be able to use Siri to play Pandora even when the phone was locked, and I haven’t changed any settings. Any ideas on how to get Siri to play Pandora without having to unlock my phone? FYI, I can use Siri to play Apple Music and Spotify with my phone locked.

Hello @Flascni! Thank you for posting!
So this probably changed the last time you updated your phone manually. If not the phone automatically updated. If not then it must of been a little glitch when your phone was locked and you could play music. I remember, when your phones locked, all access to the apps or home page is only allowed by typing the code. So I just need you to tell me your phones information and the last time you updated it manually or automatically. Thank you! Have a nice day!

It must be an issue with a Pandora update because I can use Siri to play Spotify and Apple Music with my iphone 11 locked. I’m not sure why Pandora would take away that very useful function
Hi there, @Flascni. 👋
Thanks so much for sharing your experience.
Could you provide the following?
Also, if possible, could you share a screenshot of your Settings > Siri and Search?
Let me know. 🎧
I am also having this issue, I haven’t updated my phone in a month or two. Its an iPhone 11. Up until the first I was able to play stations and songs using Siri without having to unlock my iPhone.
Hi, @XFlutterzZX. 👋
Could you provide the following details?
@Flascni Thanks for sharing that info, and for letting me know about this. I'll be reporting the feedback on this thread to our engineering team so they can investigate further. 🎧
Having the same issue as well. I have an iPhone 12 iOS 14.6 Verizon for a carrier. All tabs turned on and for the past few days have not been able to use Siri to do anything on Pandora when the phone is locked. And I have premium.
I have also already spoke with apple. The problem is not on their end.
Pandora version 2105.1
Thanks for sharing your experience on the Community, @Bhskeeper1988.
I've gone ahead and passed your feedback along to the engineers who are currently looking into this issue.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime as they work to find a fix. 🛠
I am having the same issue, started around the beginning of June.
iOS version: (Settings > General > About > Version)14.6
Pandora version: (Pandora > Profile tab > Settings gear & scroll to the bottom of the screen)2105.1
I understand it is being worked.
Me too! Seems like it’s been happening for about a month…? It’s driving me batty. I have tried all the ‘on/off’, ‘disable/restart/re-enable’, hard reset, etc. Tried creating new shortcuts. Siri keeps asking ‘do you want to play it using Pandora?’ (Which is annoying on its own - of course I do, that is why I asked!) But then, when I say ‘yes’, I get ‘you’ll have to unlock your iPhone first’. Please fix! Thank you.
iPhone XR, iOS 14.6
