iOS: Shuffle While using Modes

In shuffle is there a way to shuffle & use the play mode (Artist only, Discovery etc) so you can either more variety (deep cuts) or just listen to artists only in the shuffle? Thank you!

Hi @jackvh78 thanks for posting to community.

Using shuffle with Modes is currently not a feature, however, this is great idea to post in out Feature Request board! 

In the meantime, if you'd like to add a little variety to your stations while using Modes, I would recommend seeding the stations. 

For example, adding a 2 or 3 artists to a station, while playing Artist Only Mode, will rotate songs from all the artist that you included. 

To add variety to a station:

1. From My Collection, visit your station list.
2. Tap on the name of the station you'd like to edit. 

  • If you're a free listener or Pandora Plus subscriber, this will start your station, so tap either the Thumb or small "i" icon in the upper right corner of your screen to continue to the station's backstage page.
  • If you're a Pandora Premium subscriber, this will take you directly to the station's "backstage page." 

3. From the station's backstage page, tap on the Edit icon (the small pencil to the left of the play icon) to edit your station, and scroll down to Station Created From.

4. Use the + Add Variety button to search for an artist or track to add as a seed on your station.

Keep in mind that each seed you add will inspire hundreds of other songs, so a little variety goes a long way.


To remove variety from your station (a "seed" that you've added in the past):
Follow steps #1 - 3 and then tap the small (X) beside the item(s) you'd like to remove. 

Hope this helped. 

 

**Note: you won't be able to add variety to your Thumbprint Radio station or to genre stations curated by Pandora.

this is a shame. I do not know why they will not offer modes in shuffle. it should default all stations to that mode.
