This issue has been ongoing since at least last summer for me. It may be a bit different in my case. Here is what happens to me. I used to start Pandora on my Samsung Galaxy s10 (Android) and then use the cast feature built into the Pandora app to cast to a group of speakers I setup in the Google Home app. This worked great and allowed me to control Pandora from any speaker throughout the house, including Nest displays and my phone itself. I could control volume across the all speakers with just the volume on my phone. Now, the speakers and displays all make the "connect" sound" and the displays flash the Pandora primary hello screen (where it simply loads to say "Pandora" across the empty screen with the blue background) but it never finishes the process to actually play anything on these devices. After a few minutes, my phone will disconnect from everything with an error of "Unable to connect" or "your session with XX speakers has ended". This is beyond frustrating as it makes it difficult to play shuffle or to switch stations throughout the house. A fix I found by accident that worked until recently was this process: Ask any device to play a specific station on Pandora to only that device. Once it does (because it always works when speaking directly to a Google Speaker or Nest display), then open the Pandora app on my phone and click the cast button. Once that page loads and shows all connected speakers/devices, I then select the device I spoke to. At that point, it would connect to my phone and I once again had full control of all the devices and Pandora and could control it all from my phone. That workaround stopped being effective a few of weeks ago. Please fix this or provide a workaround. Thank you.
