Hey! Just checking in to see if there is a solution to this yet, two years after OP’s initial post. Just happened to me and here I am up at 3am trying to research this because Pandora woke me up in the middle of the night.
What seems like a very, VERY simple workaround to this issue is toggling off Auto-Start in the app’s settings, as it seems like this is possibly triggered by Bluetooth devices connecting/disconnecting/reconnecting in the night. However, this option is not available to me because I have a free account 🙂. I’ve been a devoted Pandora user for over 10 years, but this is really irking me in a way that’s tempting to just delete the app off my phone altogether.
I’d advise Pandora fix this bug/“feature” or enable the Auto-Start toggle for all accounts at this point. Honestly, it’s 2022, why isn’t the Auto-Start toggle available on all accounts anyway? Why are we still Auto-Starting when no other music app does this? And why isn’t the issue in this thread fixed yet?
I suppose I should add the following (not that it seems to matter):
iPhone 12 Pro
