Review from A Google User
FINALLY notification controls Long time Pandora one subscriber here. Updated my rating to five stars since they FINALLY added notification controls. Great app now, but Google Music may take it's place eventually.
Love this app. Only music app that is worth trying. It's easy to use and looks great. Only issue I have is that when music is playing and I pause it the push shortcut dissappears from my phone. And I have to manually go to Pandora and hit play.
Sooooo many ads unless you pay to subscribe. Even with a subscription, you lose unlimited skips if you are listening via Sonos (which I do most of the time). I can't just cast to Sonos, I have to access Pandora through Sonos, and it limits skips. I love Pandora otherwise and would give it five stars! But I just cancelled my subscription due to these limitations when used with Sonos.
Too many ads, not the audio ones, those are acceptable and understandable. The ads that are a problem ones that keep popping up while you are trying to find info on the artist currently playing. You dismiss it and it just comes back over and over again. This is major annoyance and causes the app to lose all stars as it makes large features of the app virtually unusable. I'm not opposed to ads, a long as they don't obstruct usage of the app.
I had pandora premium for 2 months and suddenly half my downloaded music was gone. Then when I went to contact them I recieved an automated response and they have no number to call for assistance. I try to redownload my music and the app closes down. I wish I could recieve a refund but I know I wont. I'm canceling my service and I wont recommnd anyone else pay for it until they fix these issues and get some sort of live customer service.
Latest update has ruined Pandora. I have a Google pixel and the most recent update was installed automatically and now only about 1 out of every 5 songs actually plays audibly. Pandora shows that the music is playing but nothing can be heard. I'm a subscribed member of Pandora One which makes this even more frustrating.
Due to income restrictions this payment must be skipped at this time... I paid for the service because it advertised being able to play what I wanted when I wanted it and also skip all I want to. Then am told due to licensing restrictions this song cannot be skipped at this time. I'll just stick to the free version and YouTube.
Bug fixes and feature improvements to reduce crashes and improve your overall listening experience. Pandora Plus for Android Wear 2.0 and Pandora Premium (mobile only) are available on this version.
