Google Clock App Lets You Wake Up to Spotify

Google Clock App Lets You Wake Up to Spotify”

Google's Clock app is seldom updated and hasn't received anything in the way of new features for a long time.

You could argue that those missing features should've been available from day one, but at least Google isn't completely ignoring them.

There's no mention of Google Play Music/YouTube Music integration on the blog announcing the new feature - a unusual omission given the fanfare with which YouTube Music was announced, however 9to5Google has secured a statement advising that YouTube Music support will be added "soon". Today, Google has announced Spotify integration in their own Google Clock app, which should make mornings a little more enjoyable. Here's what you need to know about it.

Anyway, the update should be available for any devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and above, so that covers most people at this point. Perhaps Google wanted to test it with Spotify users before it invested the man-hours needed to include its own streaming services. The tab shows your recently played music, Spotify's curated playlists, and a search button so you can find anything you want.

If you don't see the new feature yet, don't worry - it's rolling out globally this week, so it may take a few days to get to you. Both Spotify premium and free users can wake up to their favorite songs with this new integration. You will able to select between two tabs for picking alarm sounds: Regular alert tones, and Spotify music.

Is this a feature you're going to use?

How do Spotify music alarms work? When the alarm goes off you'll hear the selected music.
