You Can Now Wake up to Spotify Songs on Android Because Of Course You Can

Posted on July 31, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Android with 7 Comments

Google and Spotify are teaming up to bring a new update to the default Google Clock app on Android. The new update to the Clock app brings Spotify integration, which lets you choose any song you want as the alarm sound.

Google is calling these “musical alarms” which is just a fancy word for alarms with a song as the ringtone. The feature is available to both free and premium Spotify users, but you will be required to have the Spotify app installed and connected to an account for this to work. The feature is surprisingly well thought, letting users choose from their own playlists and music library, as well as Spotify’s curated morning playlists.

If you are someone who likes waking up to your favourite songs, this will definitely be a welcome change since you no longer have to manually pirate the song and set it as the alarm sound. Chances are, though, you’ll likely get bored of that song real quick if it’s the only thing you wake up to every day.

    A solution in search of a problem.

    You can always set it to a playlist with Random play set on....

    Surprising they don't offer this for Google Play Music (or whatever the new name is) subscribers.


    I've got a Samsung phone and I *think* the alarm clock for it is actually a Samsung thing, so no go here anyway. It does read the weather and current time to me as part of the alarm, which is nice I suppose

    This is great news. Nothing like waking up to The Heretic Anthem by Slipknot at 4 am :-)

    Protip: the "because of course" thing is played out.

    Only image that comes to mind is the shot of Bill Murray waking up to "You Got Me Babe" in Groundhog Day.


    Now if they let you pick one of your playlists and played that randomly - then you are on to something.
