    I've read other threads with this issue but have found no solution. Pandora stops playing after the phone goes to sleep. I've uninstalled and reinstalled pandora. I've unchecked the option in pandora to conserve battery. I have no battery saver apps on the device. Background data and wifi is continuously on. Does anyone else know why this could be happening and how to fix it?

    Are you using an app killer or something like that to save battery? It could be killing the app once the phone locks.

    No I don't have anything like that. I got my wife the exact same phone and Pandora is about the only app she's downloaded. She gets the same issue. Wow it's really frustrating.

    I think I figured it out. Went to settings, apps, app manager, pandora, clear data. That seems to have done it! Sheesh I was pulling my hair out all day for that one.

    I started this on another thread and have been having the same problem! Will report back if it doesn't work. Please let me know if it starts acting up again.

    Well, that fix lasted for one day and it's acting up again. Went and cleared the data and and it worked for another few hours and now is actually just stopping/pausing in the middle of a song. Very strange and frustrating. I'm not sure if it's lollipop or the phone but I have other apps acting buggy as well. The native browser crashes and so I ditched that for chrome. I can't get rid of the annoying bubble zoom when I click on a link so that's pretty sucky too. My phone dialer will sometimes not let a call go out. I dial out and it just says call not sent, then I have to redial. It doesn't happen a lot but at least a dozen times in the last 100+ calls. I use this for work so I use the dialer all day. Been using the ring central app now too but the native dialer still rings in when I'm on the line and is really intrusive. Coming from the HTC One M8 the ring central app worked seamlessly with the native dialer. So anyway all of that tells me it's not Pandora per say. Occasionally the screen does go to sleep much quicker than I have it set for which is 30 seconds. I tried to turn of some of the gesture and face recognition settings to see if that helps but so far it hasn't. Kinda bummed with the issues after coming from a device that worked perfect but just had a cracked screen. I should have known better to choose beauty over personality!

    Ok, so I tried it but it still stops playing after each song when I turn my screen off. Anyone else have an idea how to fix this? it's super annoying!

    Also, GsusReigns... here is the link I started weeks ago on the matter. Someone has to be able to know what it is... it's like the phone is going into deep sleep mode.. BUT the weird thing is that I am now using the MILK app and it works and keeps playing with my screen off! I even use Spotify and it keeps playing... it only seems to be Pandora so I don't see how it's the phone... I think it's the app! I am so lost! here is the link I started.. no help thus far on a fix...

    Well I just tried. 1st time using Pandora on the device. Played a song, listened to it with the screen on, then 1 minute prior to it ending manually turned the display off. Song went off, and the next started playing with no issue. I did this all over 4G/LTE.

    Just to be certain, are you listening over WiFi, and do you have the WiFi setting for 'Keep WiFi On During Sleep' set on? (I think the OP mentioned his was - not sure about you.)

    The only other thing I can think of would be to just remove Pandora completely and reinstall it. As far as I can tell, I'm running version 6.0, from Google Play and not the Amazon App Store.

    Interesting. I'll try the Milk app as I haven't checked it out yet. I just signed up for Pandora One a few weeks ago though so I want my Pandora! I'm going to call them and see if they have a known issue with lollipop or something.

    Yes I'm running off the wi-fi and did check the setting to keep wifi on during sleep a few days ago. I also uninstalled the app and reinstalled from the google play store. Thanks though!

    Apparently you can't call pandora so I sent them a detailed email. We'll see if they reply. Will keep posted...

    Mine works perfectly fine. Whether streaming to my car, Bluetooth headphone, or out the loud speaker. This is over WiFi or 4G. On T mobile network.

    Mine does not have that problem that you guys have, however it does pause the song when I press the home button. Than I have to press play again and everything is fine after that.

    I've tried everything. I don't have an app killer or battery saver. I've tried clearing the data from pandora. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, no matter what I do I can't get it to play continuously.

    Anyone have any other thoughts or options on this?

    Your post is almost a year old so either you discovered the problem or use another app, I assume.
    After installing the Marshmallow upgrade on my Samsung Galaxy S6 Pandora wouldn't run, sometimes got "Waiting for service" msg.
    What worked for me was disabling Power saving mode.
    I always have the battery icon displayed in the Notification settings/status area and the top 'bar', don't recall what I used with Lollipop.

    Just wanted to say you are a genius. I have been having problems with pandora since updating to marshmallow, and have tried everything I can think of. This worked right away and I would never have thought that was the problem. So thank you for taking the time to write your response

    You are the absolute best person in the world!! Couldn't figure this out after upgrading to Marshmallow and it was driving me insane.
    Does anyone happen to know of a way to have power save mode on and make an exception for Pandora?

    Thanks again, Charles!

    I would like to know this too.. I have been having a problem using Pandora and iheart radio using Bluetooth. Pre marshmallow update no issues. I always had power saving mode on. I really don't want to shut it off. Thanks.

    I can't wait to try this. Pandora hasn't worked properly on my phone for months. Just like everyone else said it stops right in the middle of a song if the screen is off. I think we are having all of these problems because Milk is a Samsung product and they want us to use that instead of Pandora.

    Holy. Crap. I've been going through this madness for MONTHS! Who would've thought it was a battery saving issue.. Not this guy. I did 4 re-installs & 2 phone wipes. Much thanks!
