Gerald, Thank you for pointing me in the right direction in are of the notifications. However, the cut-and-paste answer about volume shows that you did not read my post enough to understand that the volume issue had nothing to do with volume leveling as used by terrestrial radio but an error within the app, as I stated that the same song would have the volume shift mid-song. Frankly, regarding the notifications, while the accepted solution solved both the notifications and volume shifting, it seems both convoluted and a stupid requirement. Considering this has been a known issue for 3 years, I would think Pandora would have included a correction to this in at least one of the app updates since 2019, instead of relying on customers to find the workaround solution... I've considered upgrading my Pandora account, but this is another reason not to. Blessings to you for your help.

I used to love the Pandora app on my phone on previous phones. I still love the player on the website and use it daily. However, since I got my current phone (MOTO G STYLUS 2021 XT2115-1), the volume on Pandora always changes between songs: one song will start at a good volume and the next will either blast my eardrums out or be too quiet to hear, and then the following song will be back to the volume level of the first song. And the volume shown on the phone volume adjustment did NOT change. It does not matter whether I'm using the built-in speaker or Bluetooth, it does the same thing. If I get a call mid-song, it will often make the volume shift when Pandora resumes as I come out of the call. This makes the app pretty much unusable. I have other music apps on the phone that I do not have this problem with, so I know the problem is with Pandora. My dad said that someone who uses Pandora during their exercise classes has the same issue. Also, when the song changes, my phone notification goes off like 2-3x in a row, as though I received new texts/emails, but I didn't. This is annoying and causes me to miss parts of songs. I like Pandora, but I'm about to switch to something else so I can listen to streaming music on my phone again.
