I recently installed tvOS update 16.2 on Apple TV streaming device. Now the "search" function is lost, in both voice and typing modes. The problem is limited to Apple streaming devices, the app, and all its functions (including "search"), continues to work fine on all other devices. As other users know, none of the suggestions to restart the app, delete and re-install the app, etc., fix the problem. It is obvious that Pandora needs to fix their end in order for the app to function completely and correctly with tvOS 16.2. I've seen "moderator" comments happily stating that they're aware of the problem and have turned it over to their engineers. That's encouraging, but this has been ongoing for too long -- it needs to get fixed. Being absolutely honest, I had planned to start the New Year by upgrading from the free version to the paid, Premium version. I obviously won't do that unless this is fixed, and if that doesn't occur very soon, I'll give up using the free version as well, as it is of little use with no "search" function.
