Get Spotify as your alarm with Google Clock

Get Spotify as your alarm with Google Clock

If you use the Google Clock app for your alarm and have grown exhausted of the standard options to help you wake up or keep in mind to do something, then you may be in for a treat with the app's newest addition.

In an update that is rolling out earlier this week, you'll be able to connect Spotify to the Clock app.

The updates are beginning to roll out to devices running Android Lollipop and above now.

Unless you're an expert at getting up at the same time every morning, an alarm clock is a necessary evil. So if you are one of those heavy sleepers, you might want to pick some loud music instead. Once done, open the Google Cloud app and tap the Alarm Sounds to browse recently played music, choose from Spotify's curated morning playlists, or search for a specific soundtrack. You will have the option to continue listening to music after you turn off the alarm and the feature works for both Free and Premium subscribers.

Despite his enthusiasm, Clark said the load doesn't get too heavy. "I deal with it really well, I just have to balance", he said.

Check out the photo above to see what we mean. Spotify's free users will be able to enjoy the same experience by selecting a playlist by using the shuffle mode available.

Does Google Clock only support Spotify playlists?

Google has updated its Clock application on the Play Store, which is honestly a pretty boring app that gets pretty boring updates. You should see a tab for Spotify when choosing an alarm tone on an individual alarm entry.

Whats interesting is that Google chose to release Spotify integration before its own Google Play or YouTube Music streaming services.
