Hello! I am a Premium subscriber. I've noticed over the last few months that Pandora's music stops "playing" after a while. Meaning, the App shows that music is playing (Pause button is shown), but no sound is heard and none of the buttons/menu options are selectable. I followed the troubleshooting steps I saw in the "8-10 songs" posts and it worked for a day or two. But in the end, the music stops and the App appears frozen. I have to close the App and reopen in order for the music to be heard again and the buttons/menu to work. This is VERY annoying. I have music playing while I work. It's really messing up my concentration and positive flow to my work day. This is happening on multiple IOS devices, so it's not device related. Please help. I'm paying for continuous music and that's what I want...all day AND all night. Thank you!
Very Disappointed Subscriber

Having the same issue. Music will play for a few moments then just stop abruptly. I have to go into the app to push play and turn the music back on, only for it to stop again a few moments later. Will not resume play from AirPods shortcut or from Home Screen. No issues until latest May/ June iOS update.

I have an iPhone 2020 SE, and I am subscribed to Pandora Plus. My phone is updated, and the app is updated. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. It is still only playing one song at a time. Please help!
@Jbellfhs I moved your post over to the iOS space.
To clarify, do any error messages appear when the music stops? (Ex: buffering)
If so, can you please send me a screenshot of what you are seeing when the music stops?
In the meantime, I've enabled a trace on your account to help us better understand what's happening.
For this trace to be useful, we'll need you to run through the following troubleshooting steps once more: Troubleshooting for iOS Devices
Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
Pandora shuts itself off after I each song. I am using my iPad. Very irritating since I am playing it in my store. Can anyone help
Moderator edit: edited title for clarity

Thanks so much for your help with this. 🎧
For the past three weeks or so the Pandora ios app stops playing after one song. The "now playing" graph at the bottom right of the "My Collections" screen will continue to show playing activity, but there is no sound and it remains stuck on the one song it just played after opening. It won't begin a new song and won't allow me to manually move on to a new song by tapping the "next" arrow.
There is no error code or any message whatsoever. Pandora is never playing on another device when this happens.
This happens whether I'm using it in my car over bluetooth or whether in my home from my phone speaker.
It doesn't happen when I'm listening on PC. It seems to be just on my iphone.
I've updated the latest version of Pandora on my iphone, and I deleted it and reinstalled it on my iphone. The problem still persists.
I've searched the community and found this same question asked by others, but no solution given. I love Pandora but if I can't resolve this issue I'll cancel my subscription and move on to Prime Music. Please help!
Hi there, @vannort. 👋

What is the current status of this problem in regards to Pandora support finding a fix. I have followed the IOS troubleshooting steps multiple times on all of my IOS devices. The problem still occurs everyday. Either there is a fix or there isn’t. Please confirm. If there is no fix, I will have to find an alternate Internet radio source. I’m paying for something that dose not work as expected. I truly hope there is a resolution. I’ve been a 100% satisfied paid subscriber for many years. I’d really hate to leave.
