Spotify Sleep Timer is a new feature added by Spotify and apparently has received positive responses from users. Have you ever started to listen to music on Spotify and fallen asleep? You put on some relaxing music after a difficult day at work to only wake up a few hours later with the app still running. Thanks to the sleep timer feature on Spotify, you can avoid things such as wasting too much battery life or using too much mobile data.
In what looks like a server-side change, Spotify has quietly added a highly-requested feature from users — a sleep timer. The feature is now available on Android, here’s how it works.
Rolling out over the past couple of days to Android users, the latest Spotify update surfaced a sleep timer in the “Now Playing” menu.
As you’d expect, this feature stops music playback after a set amount of time has passed, a handy option for those who like to fall asleep while listening to their favorite tracks.
The feature’s addition shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, though. A recent leak showcased the functionality ahead of the full rollout.
Regardless, it’s still great to see Spotify adding this highly-requested option for users.
