    I will change my review to Five Stars again when my Huawei Smartwatch is again supported by the application, however, with the latest Android Wear 2.0 update my watch no longer supports the application, so I have to pull my phone out in order to start it (Not a horrible inconvenience, however, since the whole reason I bought the watch in the first place was to bypass such trivial inconveniences it is worthy of complaint). This app was supported on previous versions of Android Wear, and worked great. Since I am currently subscribed to Pandora and paying money to them every month I expect them to support the devices I have (Particularly since these aren't exactly obscure products anymore). I understand that it may not be Pandora's fault, since it was an update from a different company that resulted in the incompatibility, for that reason I am also rating down the Android Wear app until I get support to be equitable. I really don't care whose fault or responsibility it is for insuring compatibility, my only concern is that it works, and until it does, I cannot recommend this app to people who have smart watches, and use them frequently. Hopefully this is resolved soon. Full Review

    With the new Pandora premium, it has become the most amazing, music listening app to me. Used YouTube to find certain songs.. but now I can choose! Tried the free 7 day trial and was amazed! Receive another 30 day trial right after which was more awesome and I must say I'm hooked. The app itself is spectacular (shout-out the dev team) with little irritability like usual crashing or freezing like many other apps (even YouTube). Will definitely be resubscribing to the full paid version once the trial is over. Full Review

    The free app is ok and I don't mind ads. However I can only rate it three stars as the sound level is low over bluetooth. When I use it in my car I have to crank the volume on both the phone and the car stereo up all the way. It is the same when I am using my JBL bluetooth speakers. I do not have this problem with other audio apps over Bluetooth. I just got done with a free 7-Day trial of Pandora Premium in which I like some features but did not like the fact that you cannot control which stations are in the shuffle. Also the audio signal level is still low. I do not think that Pandora Premium is worth the $10 a month being charged. But may be willing to pay $5 a month for the full premium not the Pandora Plus if the audio signal level was boosted Full Review

    I really like Pandora for the ability to put in one song and getting a whole playlist of similar songs. With the new update I'm finding it difficult to do that. Now you can look up a song and listen to that specific song but then you get the rest of the same album with no similar albums or artists unless you create a playlist and add them. I remember when that was how Pandora was at first and not needing to look up every song was a great upgrade and now I usually use youtube when I just HAD to listen to a specific song. It doesn't make the app any less good but I prefer just regular Pandora plus. No ads lots of music without needing to look up every song. Pandora plus is just right for me. Full Review

    EDIT: Back to 4*, sleep setting seems to have been fixed. Much prefer the Pandora stations to Spotify. ----------------- Have had to resort to a 1 star, as of a recent (last?) update it now pauses the music after a while and asks "are you still there?", which is ridiculous when halfway through my ride with my phone in my backpack strapped to my back I assumed I would be able to turn it off in settings but doesn't look like it Apart from that a solid app. Will have to try out a competitor while this issue persists Full Review

    Used to love it. Customizable channels is awesome. But for the last 2 months it only plays one song and then stops. I've tried restarting the phone and the app. Nothing works. The update didnt help either. I'm now moving to spotify. Much to my dismay. Full Review

    Everything works great I just wish I could change the color of the font for the day dream feature it's black letters you can't read what the name of the song or the artist's name is unless the album of whoever you're listening to is white.... if you can fix that it'd be perfect haha Full Review

    I've been using Pandora for idk, 10 yrs? Its getting close to that. Its been great and I have nothing really to complain about. I do hate ads but their nowhere close to some youtube channels and the radio. The ads are usually short too. I should donate, just to support the service. Keep it up Pioneers! Full Review

    Obviously good, no implications there, but there's a small problem and this could be just a problem my device is generating. When I put on Pandora its usually to play a game, but (Been tested and proven) when I play a game Pandora will usually shut off. But only when I play games. If there's a way to make Pandora more compatible with games that would great. Full Review

    My app doesn't work anymore on my Samsung S7. I rely heavily on the alarm feature and it hasn't gone off in weeks. Luckily I use another one, and when I wake up everyday my phone is stuck on Pandora still trying to load. Please fix and I'll give 5 stars Full Review

    I've never had so much trouble trying to change my password for an app, then getting logged back in. Like 7 different errors, 2 restarts, 3 reinstalls later I finally got back in. It all started when I got a random error that someone else was listening. Boy did I ever learn my lesson about trying to keep my account secure. Full Review

    I have premium (Free Trial) It won't allow me to download stations for offline listening on my iPad which has a heck of a lot more storage space being the reason why I was hoping to use it with premium. Had to research to find this out online that they aren't offering this feature for iPads or tablets yet......grrr.....hopefully that will change soon and Pandora will let subscribers know without being secretive about it.

    I have paid for this app for about 6 months and suddenly i dont have the features i am paying for. The subscription i agreed to is $4.99/month. Now those features, no ads unlimited skipping, replays and the REASON I PAY, offline stations are not available to me any more. And the app is prompting me to become a PREMIUM listener for $10.99 when i have paid already for the current month. I am extremely aggravated and am currently searching for a new music app that is honest and upfront about their prices. Full Review

    Allan Chiang Published date: June 21, 2017

    What seems like an app that doesn't have offline mode for my device makes it uncompetitive in my opinion. You get what you pay for. My device is a Samsung J6 and I don't understand why unlocking premium doesn't seem to give me access to offline music. This means I have to use mobile data which is inconvenient in comparison. All in all, great range of music, I would recommend 9/10 if it wasn't for the fact that there's seemingly no option for offline for my device. Full Review

    I like the improvements with thumbprint radio. I was concerned with shuffle being absent, but it looks like that is now back. That is my favorite feature to choose which stations you want to shuffle. Thank you! Now if the win10 app would work as good. Full Review

    Used to be great but now they pressure you so hard to buy it. Constantly getting 2 ads back to back, plays one song, then another ad. This is why Spotify is going to be the top music streaming service Full Review

    I love Pandora, it excels at finding music that I love and the ads, while they seem to be increasing in frequency, aren't too annoying. Lately however I have been getting a weird bug that's preventing me from adding variety to some of my stations, and I'm completely clueless too what's causing it. Also, it would be nice if you could have multiple stations from the same artist as a seed. Full Review

    Every song I skip I get a 20 sec ad I have to watch. At least. And that's ridiculous. I get the reasons behind trying to push the ad-free paid version of Pandora but come on. A commercial after every single song I don't like is crazy! I'm trying to define my music preferences, yet the constant commercials are making me want to turn off Pandora. Full Review

    Jarod Dempsey Published date: June 20, 2017

    Pandora used to be good which is why I've never tried competing apps but saying it's gone down hill is an understatement. Pandora launched itself off a cliff and every time it gets to a ledge it just keeps jumping. Song recommendations are atrocious, I haven't heard anything good in over a year even though I've changed stations a few times. Constant double adds mean that I spend as much or more time listening to adds as I do songs and it eats up a ton of data even though I barely use it anymore. Very displeased will likely uninstall for one of its (superior) competitors. Full Review

    I recently upgraded to premium and I love every new feature except one, I really miss being able to control which stations play in shuffle. That was one of my favorite features before the update. Bring that back and this would be a 5 star app for sure. Full Review

    Ever since the update, all of has done is crashing every other song; furthermore, it keeps flipping on to offline mode, whole I'm using my data, and I've been paying for an upgraded experience, and it has been nothing short of less then the basic. I want my money back from the last two months of crashing and force quitting Full Review

    GET PREMIUM. It is well worth the cost. I've always used Pandora on the go. I've loved it for years for song suggestions, and finding new artists, but always hoped for better sound quality. If you get premium you finally get it. I can't quote anything official as far as bit rate goes, but according to a well known computer review website (starts with C-n..) it's supposed to be 192kbps when set to high. Sounds years ahead of the 64kbps it was with free and plus. Thank you Pandora! Full Review

    Awesome job the only thing is your playlist feature isn't there yet it's not great has Spotify premium some song you can't add to a playlist and some songs can't be replayed it needs work but other than that everything else is great. Also can you add a pandora premium feature to see if the song is downloading because I'm not sure if it's my phone or the internet but when I add music to my playlist and activate offline mode some songs don't show. Also you need to get every song that comes out like Spotify and iTunes does. Full Review

    I enjoyed Pandora until this last update. Premium can't seem to charge (QI charge) and play at the same time. If I have the phone in my cradle and I start Pandora, I will get maybe 30 seconds of a song and then the app shuts down. Off the charger there doesn't seem to be a problem. I wish that the app had settings capable of keeping the screen of the phone active as long as it is charging. When connected to my car stereo via BT the screen blacks out. I set the screensaver function to show Pandora, but it isn't the same as the app staying open. Full Review

    Don't really get what's the benefit of Premium just yet. My favorite feature is that I can select which stations I shuffle; which we can't do on premium. And its very hard to navigate. Finding the features are a chore. Furthermore I have rap music, ambient music, church music, and Christmas songs on my stations. I don't want to listen to them on shuffle all at that same time. Fix this quick. Full Review

    When you start a station it would be nice to hear at least three songs in a row from the band you want, instead you might get one then pandora makes you try to listen to other bands you don't want. Does paying for ot get any better? I do not know but i refuse to pay for music I can get for free...think I might just uninstall this app. Full Review
