I had previously posted on this thread https://community.pandora.com/t5/Android/Music-plays-without-being-prompted-at-random-times/m-p/4870/highlight/true#M604 but I can't seem to add anything else now. This issue is still persisting for me and I now have a new phone; Pixel 4 XL running Android 10. It seems to happen after disconnecting from Android Auto (which pauses Pandora), then later if I open an app such as the stock camera or Google Play Music Pandora playback will resume. I'm not sure if there's a correlation but these apps both have hooks into media on the phone. I've made a habit of keeping my system volume low so it doesn't blare when this happens but it's still pretty annoying. Here are the technical details for my new phone:
Model: Google Pixel 4 XL Carrier: Verizon Wireless Android version (Settings > About Phone): 10 Build number (Settings > About Phone): QQ1B.200105.004 Android Security Patch Level, if noted on your device (Settings > About Phone): January 1, 2020 Pandora version: 2001.1 Are you connected to Wi-Fi or 3G/4G when this is happening? Both

I'm having the same issue on a Google Pixel 2 XL running Android 10 and Pandora Plus with app version 1910.3. Mine does pretty much the same thing where it starts playing after last being used anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or so. I do use Android Auto but I haven't narrowed down if that is related. I've had to remember to turn my phone volume off so it doesn't start blasting music while I'm at work.
