Android: Pandora Starts Playing After Being Closed

I'm on Android using the app and it unpauses all the time. During the day I can live with it but I'm sick of being woke up by this app

I have Bluetooth on my car stereo.  When I am playing Pandora in my car through Bluetooth and I turn off my car, Pandora starts playing on my phone immediately.  It's usually load and it's quite annoying. Is there a way to stop this from happening on my phone (Google pixel)?

Thanks in advance!

Chris

I am having the same problem. Last two nights (middle of the night), Pandora wakes me up blaring music. I have a Samsung Galaxy S10e. How can I keep it from doing this?

Pandora started doing this on my s10+ at around 10 at night for the last 2 nights. My carrier is at&t. Pandora version 2801.1.1. I had to force stop. Then I had to sign in again to try to figure out what was wrong. No alarm setting would have caused this. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app.

Hey there, @Lburchell @APhaire. 👋

Sorry to hear that you're experiencing this issue. To keep everything organized, I moved your posts over to this existing thread: Android: Pandora Starts Playing After Being Closed

I’ve enabled a trace on your individual Pandora accounts to help us better understand what’s happening. For this trace to be useful, we’ll need you to run through our troubleshooting steps.

Android Troubleshooting:

From your Android Settings, please try clearing the Pandora app data using the following steps (not to worry, we'll keep track of your profile and collection for you):*

  1. Open your device Settings
  2. Tap Apps
  3. Scroll down to find Pandora
  4. Select Storage
  5. On the storage details page tap Clear Data.


Keep in mind that the steps for each Android device is slightly different. If you have a Pixel, you can check out Google's help page for steps on how to clear space on your device.

Please note that you will be asked to log into your account after completing these steps.

*Pandora Premium and Premium Family listeners may need to re-download some of their offline content after this. Pandora Plus users, however, should receive that offline content again automatically. If you have any trouble with your offline stations after this, please let us know.

Device Details:

If the issue continues after clearing your app data, would you mind providing your device details to report to our engineering team ?

  • Model:
  • Carrier:
  • Android version (Settings > About Phone):
  • Pandora version (Go to Profile, then select Settings. Scroll to the bottom of the screen for the version number):
  • Are you connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data when this is happening?

@APhaire Thanks for providing your device details, I've shared this with our engineering team. Let me know if clearing the app data helps.

Let me know how it goes. 🎧

Same problem here. Galaxy s8 on Verizon. Turning off my volume before going to bed seems to be the only way not to be woken up. This started happening to me the same day I updated the app to the Sept 29 update.

This has happened to me for the past three nights at 2am. And at the height of Spooky Season it's been especially creepy. Galaxy s8 on Verizon.

Thank you for your help. It appears this resolved the issue. My Pandora did
not go off last night.

Well, it did it again last night! Sometime around midnight, Pandora started playing, loudly.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S10e

Android Version 11

I don't see what version of Pandora I have. I updated it the day or two after the issues began thinking that might be the issue.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me in resolving this issue.
