I suffer the same problems pandora won't stop buffering on IOs 16 occasionally can reboot and get it to start but it quickly returns to buffering.
Hey, @TyMoff. 👋
Thank you for posting those details. I've added this to the internal ticket we have open. This is currently being investigated. We appreciate your patience during this process. 🎧
Same problem here.
Just constant buffering. If I log out and back in, it works, until next time I use the app.
iPhone 12 max pro, IOS 16 - the upgrade everyone was ready for but you? Pandora - where’s your solution? We pay for a service.
Pandora Update (09/27/22): Hey everyone 👋
Thanks so much for posting about your experience with the buffering issue.
This is currently being investigated and worked on.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your device information and for your patience during this process. 🎧
Same issue on my Iphone14, tried uninstalling and reinstalling- worked for that time only, have restarted phone, checked updates, logged out of and back in and works for that time but will endlessly buffer the next time I try to listen. Didn't have this issue with prior Iphone11
I also get endless buffering. Sometimes restarting the phone fixes it temporarily but not always and it keeps coming back.
In the meantime, my most recent update on this issue was posted here.
Thanks for your patience during this process. 🎧
This is happening to my phone/Pandora app. The only way I can get Pandora app to work is delete the app then re-install it. Every time. Once I close the Pandora app, it does the continuous buffering if I try to use it again. Then I have to delete the app, etc etc.
iPhone 8 Plus
iOS 16 (20A362)
Pandora app version 2209.1
I have Pandora running through my Sonos system, too. No problems with that. I make note of it because even though nothing is playing through my Sonos system (i.e. Pandora through Sonos is _NOT_ currently playing but I had previously been playing Pandora through Sonos a few hours ago), when I reload the iPhone Pandora app and select my usual station, the lady voice comes on with the concurrent sessions message. When I bring the iPhone Pandora app back to the screen, it accepts that the iPhone is the active Pandora session and returns to playing through my iPhone without further problems. This odd behavior happens when I'm home and near my Sonos system. The concurrent session message doesn't happen if I'm away from my Sonos system. When I re-download the Pandora app via AT&T and away from Sonos, the concurrent message does not happen, Pandora app/iPhone just works again.
I think that's everything you've asked for. Guess I'll just keep re-downloading the app as necessary. You'll upload a fix and I'll see it which will tell me things are fixed. But, believe it, the iPhone Pandora app is broken right now since iOS 16.0 upgrade!
I’ve been having the same problem with Pandora since the new iOS update.
I was signed out after the update and when I try to start the app, the music just buffers.
iphone 11 and iPhone 12 promax
Thanks for reporting and for your patience during this process. 🎧
Running pandora on an iPhone 13 with iOS 16.1. it’s practically useless. Always buffering. Never had this issue with my iPhone 11 on LTE. Ever since I upgraded to 5g on t mobile and got my upgrade to the iPhone 13 it’s been terrible. Both with Wi-Fi and on the road. Not going to pay 9.99/month for premium that doesn’t work.

Hi, @Cheermom. 👋
Thanks for your post! We're aware of this issue and it's currently being worked on. Sorry for any frustration this has caused.
I can share your feedback and device info with the appropriate team for you.
Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
I have restarted, re-installed and like all else, it works once and then stops. In addition, I can't seem to log in to this community site without getting an authentication error with my account. I had to make a separate account just to log in here to post.
Hope this gets fixed soon, the app is integral to me getting quality sleep.
Thanks so much for letting me know about this, @tdellaringa2. Sorry for any trouble this has caused.
