What is Offline Listening?

 

Offline Listening is a feature that allows you to listen to Pandora without needing a cellular data network or wifi connection. When you do not have access to a cell network or wifi, you can stay connected to your music without major interruptions.

 

You can give a thumbs up, thumbs down, skip, or replay while in Offline Listening mode, just as you would with any other station. Pandora will periodically review this feedback to further tune your stations.

How do I get Offline Listening?

 

Offline Listening is only available to our current Pandora Plus subscribers on iOS and Android devices that meet the minimum requirements to run the latest version of the Pandora app.

 
Currently, Offline Listening is not available for iPads. 
 

If you're not already a Pandora Plus Subscriber, you can upgrade here.

How does Offline Listening work?

 

Pandora will download up to three of your most-listened-to stations and add them to your Offline Station list. By default, these stations will be downloaded while your device is connected to wifi, and we will never use the last 500 mb of storage on your device.

 

When you lose your connection, Pandora will alert you with a notification to let you know that you're being switched to one of your offline stations.

 

When you have a signal again, you can continue listening to the offline station you were transferred to or switch back to your regular station list.

 

Keep in mind that when you are currently in Offline Listening mode, the list of features you have access to will be limited. Specifically, your station list will show only the stations that have been downloaded for Offline Listening, and you will not have access to your full list of Stations,Settings, Feed, or Profile.

Edit Offline Stations

 

At this time, you cannot edit which stations are available offline.

 

Each week, we will revisit the stations we’ve stored for Offline Listening and swap in stations that are eligible to be cached offline. Available Offline Stations will always be your most-listened-to stations over the last 6 months.
