It seems since the 16.0.2 iOS update the Shuffle does not want to work. I have had to delete & reload the app multiple times to get it to work for the past few days. When I hit Shuffle Stations either nothing happens or it goes to the last song played but plays nothing. It will only play when if I select a station but I want all my stations to shuffle. I have left the app open so it should just have the play button & already be in shuffle mode but it keeps going back to the entire collection with the Shuffle Stations at the top. 

My laptop is successfully shuffling the stations? Its only the app which I use in the car & when I run.

Hi Gerald & Pandora Team,

The issues I'm having with my Pandora iPhone app after installing iOS 16 a few weeks ago:

  • Shuffle Stations just buffers continuously after opening app
  • I have to choose a Station for music to play
  • Starting today, choosing Thumbs Up on a Station song automatically creates a new "[Artist] Radio Thumbs Up Playlist" with all of the artist's thumbed up songs added

My info:

  • Device: iPhone SE 2020
  • Carrier: AT&T
  • iOS version: 16.0.2 (20A380)
  • Pandora version: 2209.1 

Let me know if any additional information is needed.

Thank you!

Dana

I'm sorry I didn't read carefullly,iPhonr xriOS 16.0.2Pandora PremiumAt&TI deleted and reloaded the Pandora app 2nd time. It worked a few times then the same problem, buffering buffering buffering until I chose a staion. Sometimes I get lucky and shuffle station works right off the bat but usually I have to select a staion the go back and select shuffle stations and it usually works.

Thank your your help,Ken
