Find Pandora on Alexa Instructions Summery
To summarize how to get to Pandora, go to your Alexa app Home screen. Then visit your Settings page. Then, tap the Music menu item. Note that you won’t see Pandora on the Music Services screen until you have added.
However, if you don’t see it on the Music Services screen, you will indeed find it on the New Music Services screen. Pandora always shows up in either one or the other place. If you see Pandora on the New Music Services screen, then Pandora is not yet set up in the Amazon account to which your Alexa app is connected. In that case, follow the steps in our Add Pandora to Alexa Instructions to add it to your Amazon account.
