Spotify has recently released a new feature for it mobile apps not its let you to use your favorite song as alarm to wake you up. The feature’s available with both free and premium Spotify subscriptions, but sadly only works on Android devices.
All you need to do is authenticate your Spotify account into the Clock app, which most likely came pre installed on your device, but is also available on the Google Play store. You may need to update the app in order to see this feature.
Then, head to the Alarms tab. You’ll be able to select the track, album, or playlist you want to wake up to in the morning.
The same feature is available to free users, but only in a feature-limited shuffle mode.
When you wake up, users can press the continue playing button, which keeps the music rolling as you take your morning deuce and make breakfast. Hopefully not at the same time.
There’s a bit of a risk with this feature. If you associate your favorite song with something intrinsically awful like waking up and facing the grim indignities of everyday life it’ll quickly cease to be your favorite song.
