Now, Spotify for Android finally has a basic sleep timer for turning off the music when dozing off.
Spotify finally got around to adding the sleep timer feature after years of Android users asking for the feature. A cursory glance at the Google Play Store with the search term ‘Spotify timer‘ yields several highly rated apps.
How to set a sleep timer on Spotify for Android
To access this new feature, you’ll first need to be on the latest Spotify update from the Play Store. After that, while music is playing, head to the “Now Playing” screen and tap the overflow menu. Towards the bottom of the list, the “Sleep Timer” option will show.
Pressing that reveals a list of timers for music to continue from 5 minutes to 1 hour. You’ll need to pick one of those times, at which point the timer will immediately start. Interestingly, Spotify also included an option to stop playback after the current track ends. To end a timer, simply repeat these steps and press “Turn off timer.”
