How to Undo a Thumbs Down in Pandora









Device Links



It’s happened to a lot of us. You’re happily listening to your favorite music on Pandora when you accidentally “thumbs down” a song by mistake. It’s a problem because hitting thumbs down on Pandora basically means you’ll stop hearing that song permanently, as the service will take that as a signal not to play the song on that station for you again.


How to Undo a Thumbs Down in Pandora


So, if you’ve accidentally given a song a thumbs down or have simply changed your mind about a track you didn’t particularly like before, don’t panic. Luckily, there is a way to undo it. We’ll take you through the steps required to undo a thumbs down in Pandora on your mobile device (iPad, iPhone, Android) or on your PC.


How to Undo a Thumbs Down in Pandora on a Mobile Device


The process for undoing a thumbs down is the same on all mobile devices. First, let’s look at how to do it on an iPhone.


How to Undo a Thumbs Down on an iPhone


If you’re actively listening to music on the Pandora app and have inadvertently thumbs-downed a track, stay calm. Here’s how to undo it.



  1. If the track is still playing, simply click on the orange downturned thumb icon to undo it.

  2. If several songs have passed, but your listening session is still in progress, scroll back through the tracks from left to right until the desired one appears.

  3. Click on the colored icon to undo the action.


In situations when you want to go back and clear a thumbs down from a track you heard several sessions before, it’s still possible as Pandora keeps a detailed log of your listening activity. But the process is a little bit different because you need to go back to the song’s station to change your rating.



  1. Launch the Pandora app on your iPhone.

  2. On the top part of the screen, find and tap “My Collection.”

  3. Select “Stations.”

  4. Go through it until you find the station of the song and click on it.


From here, the steps differ depending on whether you’re listening for free, using Pandora Plus, or using the Premium Service:



  • For Premium users, once you’ve clicked on the station, go straight to its backstage page which stores all the thumbs you’ve given songs on that station.

  • If you’re listening for free or use Pandora Plus, clicking on the station opens it up. To enter the backstage page, either touch the “Thumb” icon or find the small “i” icon at the top left of your screen and tap it to go backstage.

    1. On the backstage page, look for the small pencil-shaped “Edit” icon located beside your play button and click it.

    2. Scroll down until you reach the “Thumbed-down Songs” section and tap to open it.

    3. Once you’ve located your desired track, tap the “X” on the right of its title, and you’ll remove the negative rating.




How to Undo a Thumbs Down on an iPad


If you’re using an iPad, listening to music on the Pandora app, and have inadvertently thumbs-downed a track, stay calm and follow these steps.



  1. If the track is still playing, simply click on the orange “thumbs down” icon to undo.

  2. If several songs have passed, but your listening session is still in progress, scroll through the tracks from left to right until the one you want appears.

  3. Click on the colored icon to undo the action.


If several sessions have passed and you want to go back and un-rate a track you heard, note that Pandora keeps a log of your music listening and rating activity. But in these instances, you need to go back to the song’s station to change your rating. Here’s how that’s done.



  1. Launch the Pandora app on your iPad.

  2. On the top part of the screen, choose “My Collection.”

  3. Select “Stations.”

  4. Go through it until you reach the station of the song and click on it.


At this point, the steps are different depending on whether you’re listening to the free version of Pandora, using Pandora Plus, or the Premium Service:



  • For Premium users, clicking on the station takes you straight to its backstage page where all your thumbs are stored.

  • If you’re listening for free or using Pandora Plus, select the station to open it. To enter the backstage page, you can:

    1. Touch the “Thumb” icon.

    2. Find the small “i” icon at the top left of your screen. Tapping it takes you backstage.

    3. Once backstage, find the small pencil-shaped “Edit” icon by the play button. Select it.

    4. Scroll to the “Thumbed-down Songs” section. Tap to open it.

    5. When you see the song you want, tap the “X” on the right of its title. The “thumbs down” vote will be gone.




How to Undo a Thumbs Down on an Android Device


If you’re using an Android phone or tablet, listening to music on the Pandora app, and have inadvertently thumbs-downed a track, here’s how to undo it.



  1. If the track is still playing, click on the orange downturned thumb icon to undo.

  2. If several songs have passed since clicking it, but the listening session is still in progress, scroll through the tracks from left to right until the song you want to remove the vote appears.

  3. Select the colored icon to undo the action.


If several sessions have passed and you still want to go back and change your vote on a track you heard, Pandora’s detailed log of your listening activity will be helpful. In this case, you need to go to the song’s station to change your rating. Here’s how.



  1. Launch the Pandora app on your Android device.

  2. On the top part of the screen, choose “My Collection.”

  3. Select “Stations.”

  4. Scroll through it until you reach the station of the song and click to open it.


The steps to access the song differ depending on whether you’re listening for free, using Pandora Plus, or the Premium Service.



  • Premium users should click on the station to access the backstage page where all your song votes are stored.

  • If you’re listening for free or using Pandora Plus, click on the station to open it. Then, to enter the backstage page:

    • Click on the “Thumb” icon.

    • Find the small “i” icon at the top left of your screen. Tap it to go to your backstage page.

      1. Once backstage, click the small “Edit” icon (it’s shaped like a pencil) next to the play button.

      2. Scroll down to the “Thumbed-down Songs” section. Tap to open it.

      3. Once you find the song you want, select the “X” on the right of its title. The thumbs down will disappear.






How to Undo a Thumbs Down on a PC


If you want to remove a thumbs down using your PC and the Pandora desktop app, here’s how it’s done.


If the song is still playing:



  1. Go to the top left of your desktop and tap “Now Playing.”

  2. Hold your cursor over the cover art until “View Session History” pops up and click it.

  3. Find the song you want in your listening history. Tap the thumbs down icon underneath the song to undo the negative rating.


You can also change the rating of a song you heard in a previous listening session. Here’s how to do it.



  1. Launch the Pandora desktop app.

  2. Select “My Collection” from the top menu bar.

  3. Choose “Stations” to filter out the collection. When you see the station that contains the song you rated, click on it.

  4. Tap the small ellipses next to the play button.

  5. When the menu appears, find “Edit Station” and click it.

  6. Scroll until you reach “Thumb History.” This normally pulls up the songs that have received a thumbs up from you, so you need to specifically select the thumbs down icon.

  7. To remove the negative thumb, locate the song you’re looking for on the list, hover your cursor over its title and a pop-up menu will appear. If you’re a Premium user, just tap the ellipsis for the menu to show up.

  8. Click on “Delete” to undo the thumbs down.
