I am hating my offline stations lately. What gets downloaded is almost unrecognizable from the stations I have spent years curating. In the offline versions, I see almost none of the songs that I have liked or the variety I have added when using the online version. I am hating what gets played! And it seems so randomly unrelated to my station at all. It will be some stream of the same kind of music over and over, with several tracks from artists I don't even like. Even when I thumb down over half of the songs I don't want to be hearing, they don't get updated or replaced with the songs from my station that I actually like. I made a station I like; why does the offline version have to wreck that? It that on purpose so I'll upgrade to Premium?

@chowderhed I moved your post over to the iOS space.
We do periodically refresh your offline stations based on your online listening habits and the Thumb feedback you give. Each offline station that is downloaded will provide approximately 3 hours of music for you to enjoy.
While listening offline, it's important to continue giving feedback in the form of Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down. The next time you connect to Pandora through Wi-Fi or a mobile network, we will use that info to personalize and replace the offline tracks with new ones.
This being said, it doesn't sound like your stations have been refreshing as of late.
Let's run through some troubleshooting steps to see if we can resolve this.
I'd recommend disabling the offline listening feature and re-enabling it, which will reset the download process. Then, make sure to keep Pandora in the foreground of your device while the download completes.
To do that from a mobile device:
If you continue to have trouble, please run through these additional troubleshooting steps found on our help page: Troubleshooting for iOS Devices
Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝
@chowderhed I completely understand how frustrating that can be.
I would like to report this issue to our engineers. Could you tell me more about your device?
Let me know. 🎧
