FOR ANYONE HAVING TROUBLE WITH SKIPPING AUDIO :
I would recommend (to anyone, REGARDLESS of whether you are an ad-based premium user or a paying subscription holding premium user) -- if you are having problems with your audio skipping out, and/or annoyingly stopping out of nowhere during playback :
Try this solution:
1- download the Opera desktop browser from www.opera.com ,
2- ENABLE THE FREE OPERA VPN : here is how to do that : https://www.wikihow.com/Turn-on-the-Built‐In-VPN-for-Opera-Browser
3- AFTER MAKING SURE that you have turned on the free Opera vpn (FIRST) - now go to www.pandora.com (MAKING SURE TO USE THE OPERA BROWSER).
Now you will (hopefully, probably) be able to listen without a problem.
Technical blah blah that may or may not interest anyone:
(I suspect the reason why this fix seems to usually work is about ISPs (internet service providers) choosing to use smart packet modifier (aka shaper) software and/or devices to limit how long high quality streaming audio can play for (probably mainly in order to prioritize video streaming instead) - but in any event, enjoy. 🙂 )
That is, get the desktop browser if you listen with a computer like me, otherwise of course try a mobile version instead.
(last last last note, sorry...) -- SO for those who are using a CHROMEBOOK, if you have the google play store on your chromebook, then you might be able to possibly use an Opera mobile version on that chromebook.
Can't say or sure if that may work or not, because I have no chromebook to test that idea on.

One last note, I DO NOT BELIEVE THERE IS ANY WAY to be able to use this solution on a chromebook, but that's just my best guess on that. (i.e. - this fix DOES work for me, but I'm using only Windows computers here.
