I finally gave up tonight and deleted App. Going to be a pain to switch but I’m tired of it turning on by itself, waking me up, and/or draining my battery. Done with it. Junk app.
I've been using the android app for a few years on a Samsung Tab A7 and also on a Pixel 6, and it just started auto-starting every time I reboot the device. I've read through hundreds of community posts and tried all the switches, but can't find the solution.
I deleted data and cache, and maybe that solved the problem.
Now, how do I delete this post?

Same issues orhers reported. It starts playing randomly and starts anytime I reboot phone, even if I close all apps, and even if I force stop Pandora before reboot, it still plays in background.
Pandora version 2308.1
I am having the same issue! I have deleted the app several times and reloaded it and it is still doing it!

It seems if I have run pandora, and closed it when I was done, that it starts playing music about an hour later for no reason. Then I have to open pandora and close it again for it to stop.. i have a galaxy flip 3.. and it did it to me on my old phone.. the s22 ultra
This has been happening to me also & it started early September 2023 and has been occuring every night now in the middle of the night around 4am when my phone does it's daily automatic restart. Once the phone restarts, Pandora automatically opens and starts playing and waking me up and/or draining the battery. Will have to delete the app if this continues so that I can sleep through the night. I do not have Pandora premium and have tried the troubleshooting steps to no avail. Android S10e, Verizon, Android version 12, hardware version REV1.0, Pandora version 2308.1
I am also having this issue. Even when I stop it, it shows as still active in the background. I have turned off automatic start when connecting to vehicle but still opens app & is active.
Omg I came looking for answers to this issue too and this cracked me up.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Phone
Pandora 2308.1 version
Pandora reopens itself even after closing out all apps and restarting phone.

In OneUI 5.1/Android 13 whenever I reboot the device and log-in, Pandora keeps automatically playing music. I don't see a place to disable this in settings. Is there a way to get this to stop?
I'm glad you're looking in to this. Pandora had launched on its own the last 2 nights between 10 and 1015. I noticed that the player on the lock screen indicated it was connected to my car, which was the last thing it was connected to but had been turned off and disconnected from my phone for 6 hours or more
Samsung 21 att android version 13, Pandora 2308.1
I am also having this same exact issue on a Samsung Galaxy with T Mobile as my carrier. It started automatically playing 5 times yesterday without me ever having the app opened, including once I'm the middle of the night when I was sleeping. Congrats Pandora on losing me as a subscriber.
