The Spotify sleep timer lets you make sure the music app turns off when you fall asleep. Android phones do not have a universal sleep timer, so the ability to turn it on via music app Spotify is a handy resource.
Reasons to Enable Spotify Sleep Timer
Any time you open the Spotify app and turn on a soft or relaxing playlist in the evening, you can also turn on the sleep timer, just in case.
Making sure the music stops after you’ve fallen asleep isn’t just for personal well-being, so noise won’t wake you up in the middle of the night. There are several reasons why it would be a good idea to add a timer when listening to Spotify at night, including:
- Saving battery life
- Data Usage Prevention
- Sleep tight all night
By default, Spotify will continue to play music after your current playlist ends. Using the sleep timer will limit the noise to a certain period of time.
