How to set a Spotify song as an alarm on Android and wake up to your favourite music


To set a Spotify song as your alarm on your Android mobile device, you need two separate apps. The first, obviously, is Spotify. The second app — the alarm clock — is Google Clock. You can download it from the Google Play Store if you don’t already have it.

How to set a Spotify song as your alarm on Android

The support of Spotify soundtrack alarms is a new feature on Google Clock, so if you haven’t updated either of those apps in a while, you should do so before trying to set a music alarm. Once you’re up to date, though, the process is relatively straightforward.

1. Open the Google Clock app.

2. Tap the circle with the plus “+” symbol in the centre to create a new alarm.
