If you are holding the Android device, then you must know that there is no way to set the Spotify Sleep Timer directly on Android because it is totally not inbuilt app. So how to deal with the Android issue? If you are holding the iOS devices like iPhone, then you are lucky for there is a carried feature enabling you to set the Spotify Sleep Timer directly. But according to examples around me, less people know how to achieve it.

Never mind, both two ways will be shown on below with the detailed tutorials about how to set Spotify Sleep Timer on Android and iPhone.

Part 1. How to Set Spotify Sleep Timer?

Part 2. Spotify Alarm Apps Recommended


Alexa is a virtual assistant developed by Amazon. It is capable of voice interation, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, playing audiobooks, and providing weather, traffic, and other real-time information such as news.

Before applying this utility to your Android or iPhone devices, you should turn on the Bluetooth speaker, because Alexa lacks the ability to play music as an alarm.


Alarmify is created by three students from Hyper Island. It aims to create something different to iOS alarm by integrating music with the scheduled alarms. There is a dashboard with a clock which lets you set an alarm and another tab from the menu lets you find the Spotify song you like. You need to download the official Spotify iPhone app on your device, but unfortunately, only the Premium users can access to this, and it's not on US App Store. Therefore, how to do? Then Alarmify is acting as the bridge connecting alarm you set and Spotify.

However, there is also another way to achieve the Spotify music streaming to device, which is to stream the Spotify music by TuneFab Spotify Music Converter. Only 4 steps then can get access to Spotify offline listening. Let's see how to do it.
