If you're on the road, commuting to work, or just going for a walk, you do not have to wait long for the songs to be selected in Pandora. After a while, however, the playlist may repeat, as the same songs seem to be played repeatedly by the same artists. Fortunately, Pandora makes it easy to give your stations a change with just a few clicks.
If your favorite Pandora station gets a little too long, you can confuse things by alternating them and rummaging through a lot of new tracks and artists ̵
Adding Variety to Pandora Stations
Add First, open Pandora and go to My Collections if you have not already been directed there. Now tap on the station to which you want to add some variety and press either the information icon (Android) or the thumbs up (iOS) button in the upper right corner of the station's page.
Select "Add Variety" from the list of titles or artists in the "Recommended" tab, or search for a specific artist or song in the search box at the top of the screen. When you tap an artist or song, it's instantly added to your station, and songs from that genre are automatically played, and your station's original playlist is constantly being changed.
To make sure you never get bored with your favorite Pandora station, you can use the app Add as many artists or tracks as you like (we stopped at 14) to create a really versatile playlist. However, if you add so many songs to your station, some genres may not work as well as you might hope, and you want to remove them from your station for a more coherent experience.
If you think that a particular artist or song you've added affects the overall flow of your station, you can easily remove it from your Pandora Station. Go to the station and tap either the information icon (Android) or the thumbs up button (iOS) again. This time, click "Edit" to the left of the play / pause button on the following page.
Now tap the small "x" next to the artist or song you want to remove, and tap "Save" on the top right when you're working with Android. On iOS, you can either press "x" or swipe sideways over the desired track or artist to display the "Delete" button. Click on "Delete" and tap "Done" in the upper right corner to save the changes.
