iOS: Video Ad Causes Error / Stops Playback

Same problem with me!  It almost like it wigs out and instead of going to the usual video ad, that pop up happens.

I can’t search for individual songs anymore. There used to be an option to play songs for free for a brief period of time.

I have not been able to play music on demand I click the play button and theres the "click effect" but no watch add thing pops up. I have restarted my phone, signed in/out and uninstalled reinstalled and it's still not working.

Hey I’ve been using pandora and usually it’ll give me a choice to play Pandora with skips if I watch an ad but lately it hasn’t given me the option. I can’t listen to anything and when I request to play a song it tells me to upgrade to premium is anyone having this problem? I just started using pandora because I loved the idea of watching an ad to get unlimited skips for a short amount of time but did they update or take this mode out?

Hi, @mwelch1124 @Nascar22 @Saintflores171.👋

Thanks so much for reporting this. I moved your posts into one thread as your experiences are very similar: Video Ad Causes Error / Stops Playback

I've also enabled a trace on your individual Pandora accounts to better understand what's happening. 

Sounds like uninstalling / reinstalling the app using these steps doesn't help with the issue you're experiencing.

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

  • Are you able to watch the advertisement?
  • If so, what is the advertisement for?
  • Is it the same advertisement each time? 
  • Do you run into any other error messages stating that you've hit your limit for Premium sessions
  • Any other error messages other than "Something has gone wrong"?

Appreciate your help with this. Let me know. 🎧

@Cm8257 You should still be able to initiate Premium Sessions.

Could you tell me a bit more about what is happening? Are you listening to Pandora on a computer or on a device?

  1. If you are on a computer, are you listening from:
    • A Mac or Windows computer?
    • Our website, or the desktop app? If you're listening from our website, what browser are you using?
  2. If you are on a device, what is the make and model (and carrier, if applicable)?
  3. Is there an error message when you attempt to play a specific song? If so, what does it say?
  4. Are you still prompted to watch an ad when you search for and try and play a specific song?
  5. Can you provide me with a screenshot/screen-recording of what you're seeing? 

Thanks for working with me on this. 🤝

All day yesterday I got the message to upgrade every time I tried to listen to a specific song. I couldn’t even listen to an ad. There must have been a glitch in the system. Everything is fine today.

Turned on my phone today and it works! No ad was poping up and no error message. When I clicked the play button nothing was happening.

Correct, uninstalling/reinstalling didn’t help.  Of note, I did sign up for a trial to bypass this while it gets debugged, so I may not see that error again until I end the trial.  Replies to bulleted questions below:

  • Are you able to watch the advertisement? Nope .. look like it messes up when it tries to transition into one, then error messages stack up after each song is played
  • If so, what is the advertisement for? N/A
  • Is it the same advertisement each time? N/A
  • Do you run into any other error messages stating that you've hit your limit for Premium sessions? Happens right off the bat on the first repeat/skip/etc
  • Any other error messages other than "Something has gone wrong"? Nope .. but they do stack on each other after each song plays, so there could be dozens stacked after a while.
