Ok so that was super duper easy but how do I just let it stream music while I’m working on my computer or doing my nails, you get the idea. I don’t want to have to keep changing channels or music

As far as I know, there are several modes on Pandora that allow you to choose what songs will play. For example the songs from one specific artist or songs which don't normally play in your playlist, etc.
To change modes on pandora: Tap the ellipsis from your Now Playing screen

Can I do this by genre as well?

As I can see, for now, Pandora doesn't even have a feature to block specific genres from the playlists, however: In the meantime, if you continue to Thumb Down various tracks, you will not hear them again on the station you're listening to. As always, you should use your Thumb ratings freely to tell Pandora what you want and don't want to hear.
Additionally, you may want to look into Pandora Premium if you are looking for more control in your listening sessions.
With Pandora Premium, you have the ability to pick and choose what songs you want to listen to on demand. You also have the ability to create customized playlists - so if you were to create a Meditation playlist, you'd be able to pick and choose specific songs you want to be added to it.

Could you please tell me when and how did the problem occur?

Customer Replay

I was playing with the blue button on top upper right and I must have hit something wrong

What did that button look like?

Can you please try to do the following:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard.

Tap Keyboards, then do any of the following:

  1. if you see the keypad, try to re-add it To delete: Remove a keyboard: Tap Edit, tap. next to the keyboard, you want to remove, tap Delete, then tap Done.
  2. if you don't see the keypad in the list, then try to add it: Tap Add New Keyboard, then choose a keyboard from the list. Remove a keyboard:
