Hey, @MikeI. 👋
Sorry to hear that you're running into the buffering issue.

Suddenly when I try to play a song on Pandora it just sets there buffering without playing.
I have deleted the app. Reinstalled the app and the buffering still continues.
I have an iPhone 6s Plus.
I have tried both Wi-Fi and Cellular Data.
Solved: Just an update -- the above completely solved my problem and it has not come back.
If you're still having trouble, make sure you try my solution as it solved the problem for me permanently.

I too am experiencing endless buffering after upgrading to iPhone 13. I don't see any actual responses with solutions, only that this will be report to 'engineering'. is engineering responding to each issue individually? After many years of subscribing, My subscription payment is due in a few days. This is very frustrating, for which I'm seriously considering cancelling, if I cant resolve quickly. Thank you!

I'm having the same "always buffering" problem. My device is an iphone SE running iOS 15.6.1. My carrier is AT&T. The Pandora version is 2208.1.
This problem started a couple of days ago. I've deleted and reinstalled the app, toggled the cellular data tab and all of the other suggestions from the prior post. Nothing has worked. I've used Pandora for years without a problem. Why now?
Lately Pandora radio seems to buffer all the time. It takes forever to load when you’re trying to search for something. I’m an A/V tech I’ve tried everything in my power turning off Wi-Fi using only cellular using Wi-Fi when at home and not cellular. All my other apps work well and load as expected. I have been a customer for a very long time. Premium family subscription. Due to pressure from my kids and the fact that your service lately is poor i am considering leaving.

Hi there, @mtboze. 👋
Does this happen in offline mode? Or, when you're listening to stations normally?
Also, do you receive any other error messages? If so, what exactly does it say?
Lastly, which station do you have trouble with?
Let me know. 🎧
