How to Stop Pandora on a Windows Phone

Beginning with Windows Phone 8, you can install the Pandora music player app and listen to stations by genre, create custom stations based on music you enjoy or shuffle between the stations in your list. If you attempt to switch to another app or press the Start button to return to the Start screen, you may notice that the music continues to play. You can stop the app by pressing the right combination of buttons.


Press and hold the "Back" button to view all apps currently open on your Windows phone.

Tap on the Pandora app when you locate it to open it.


Press the "Back" button to access the Start screen and stop the Pandora application.
