Samsung GALAXY S-6 with operating system 6.0.1. I use the sleep function on Pandora and it works well. However, the application starts unprompted at random times during the night. Not good, solution?

    Do you have any Bluetooth devices paired that have the ability to start media playback? – Bort Apr 20 '16 at 15:32

    I had this happen for awhile, Pandora would just start playing at random... as @Bort mentioned, it was my BT headset. For some reason while charging it would sort of turn itself on momentarily at times for some unknown reason, starting media playback. Turning the BlueTooth off at night on my phones fixed the problem, and after replacing my old Plantronics headset with a new one, it stopped occurring, although at times if I have 2 phones active at one time, and the right circumstances occur well hanging up a call on phone 2, Pandora still starts at random. – acejavelin Apr 20 '16 at 16:06
  • I do not have any bluetooth devices connected and the bluetooth function is not activated on the phone. – Tom Apr 22 '16 at 12:48
  • Mine does the same thing. Please let me know if you figure it out. :) – Valerie Mar 11 '17 at 13:32
  • I think that it is designed to do it. Think about it. Advertisers have to pay Pandora for the ads/ad time. So, it would be in Pandora's best interests to make it look like their app was being used a lot (even if it isn't). To me, it's that simple. They're padding their stats and it really gets on my nerve. – Cole Capshaw Jan 17 '18 at 23:44

I just had to uninstall it since I couldn't figure it out. Not only did it start spontaneously, I couldn't even turn it off because it didn't show up in my list of running apps. It was like it was on, but not on. I would have to power down my whole phone to get it to stop. It's not worth the trouble, there are way too many other music apps out there to be dealing with this. No Bluetooth devices connected at the time and also in an area with a very weak WiFi signal.
