iOS: Offline Mode Doesn't Work on Airplane

Local Performer

My pandora does not play any of the offline stations that I have set up while I am on an airplane.

@Tar4160 Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening?

  1. What happens when you toggle the app to Offline Mode?
  2. Is there an error message? If so, what does it say?
  3. Can you provide me with a screenshot/screen-recording of what you're seeing? 

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

Hi there, @Esac. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Something to note, your offline collection will be removed if you uninstall or sign out of the Pandora app, or if you are unable to re-establish a connection with Pandora via a Wi-Fi or mobile network within 30 days.

Turning on Offline Mode:

I would recommend enabling offline mode prior to getting on the plane so that everything is set up for you with your stations.

To listen offline from a mobile device, you can use the following steps:

  1. Tap the Profile tab and then the Settings gear in the top right corner.
  2. Toggle Offline Mode on.

Once Offline Mode has been enabled, you will see only the content in your collection that has been downloaded for offline listening.


If you're still having trouble, what happens when you attempt to toggle Pandora to offline mode while on the plane? Is this when the white screen appears?

Let me know. 🎧
