Ideas: Ability to shuffle offline playlist & stations

Opening Act
Status: Open Ideas

I would like the ability to shuffle my offline playlists/stations. Aren't they already on my phone?

Also, sometimes Pandora will tell me that one of my offline stations/playlists is not available.  I don't know why it does this because it's offline and supposedly exists on my phone.  If Pandora is having a problem with an offline playlist, then I want it to automatically switch to another.  I don't want to be driving and have to manually switch to another offline playlist/station (it's too dangerous).

mod edit: changing title for clarity


I agree. I thought this would have been corrected by now. I mentioned this
a couple years ago. I hope this gets them to move forward on it. --

*"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves"*

*Edward R. Murrow*

*"A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot
survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for
he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves among
those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the
alleys, heard even in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor
appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he
wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies
within the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works
secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he
infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is
less to fear." Marcus Tullius Cicero -42BC*

@DWDAVID I moved your post over to this existing feature request: Ability to Shuffle Offline Playlists & Stations

Make sure to upvote this thread with a ❤️ if it's something you'd like to see added to the service as well.

Thanks for your suggestion!

Would like to be able to shuffle my downloaded content (stations/songs) when in off-line mode.  Would save a ton of data usage.

Please add the ability to shuffle downloaded songs/stations!  I have to use downloaded songs at work and want to shuffle them.


Ditto, this has been being requested for years now. I hope Pandora will get
to it. --

Please allow shuffling offline. This is a must for folks who spend time in areas without cell service or internet access. Thanks

Please Add this Pandora Devs!  I use Station Shuffle nearly full time and bums me out big time when I don't have internet and get stuck on a station.  Station Shuffle OffLine Please and Thanks You!
