Ideas: Lock for creating new stations on Alexa & Google

Ideas: Lock for creating new stations on Alexa & Google

Status: Open Ideas

Hi everyone.  I'm super annoyed with Alexa creating a new station everytime it misunderstands what we requested.  It creates dozens of new stations every week and adds it to My Collection.  We need a way to prevent this behavior.  Maybe a lock mechanism where you need a three digit pin number to create a new station, that way Alexa or the kids won't create stations I don't want.

Pandora needs a "lock down" or "do not add any more stations" feature in "my collection" on the Pandora web site station list so if a mistake is made requesting a wrong station on the Facebook Portal voice command "hey portal" (connected to Pandora), it does not add to the Pandora "my collection " list. You have to constantly go in and delete the odd ball stations

I also do not like Pandora making stations merely due to a song request. I would like the ability to make this not happen. I like to be able to ask for a song but I do not want a station created from this request. I only want to be able to create stations. 


With Pandora creating stations from single song requests my station list has become bloated and I am required to edit/delete many stations on a regular basis, this is frustrating, to say the least.

Local Performer

Easily the most annoying thing about Pandora right now.

This needs to be fixed. Alexa should not be about to create new stations unless explicitly requested.

Local Performer

This. Make it so already! I'm tired of having to manually delete 50 new stations every month or so that are created from my kids asking Alexa to play a random song.

Local Performer

Yep. Worst "feature" ever. I've deleted hundreds of stations created accidentally. Unless I ask you to create a station, I don't want you to create a station.

Adding my voice to this request. Stations are a curation of one's musical tastes. It takes effort to manage the list of stations so you know what you're getting. Automatically adding stations undermines this effort and is very frustrating to the account owner.

And in some environments (like my car's audio system), a large list of stations is very difficult to navigate to find a desired one.

Don't create a station unless it's specifically requested.

Local Performer

I agree, especially as Alexa doesn't always hear what I'm saying correctly.
