Google Clock now supports musical alarms with Spotify integration

Share

When the alarm goes off you'll hear the selected music.

Whats interesting is that Google made a decision to release Spotify integration before its own Google Play or YouTube Music streaming services. Thankfully, now it is possible thanks to Google Clock's integration with Spotify.

Anyhow, tapping on the Spotify tab will allow you to choose your alarm sound from your recently played music or Spotify's morning themed playlists.

The new feature will roll out globally over the course of this week. If you don't already have it on your phone, head over to Google Play to download it. The feature is surprisingly well thought, letting users choose from their own playlists and music library, as well as Spotify's curated morning playlists.

Clock apps are probably the least exciting thing to talk about, but without a doubt, one of the best ones is the official Google Clock.

Cook dismissed the idea that Apple has to steal users from Spotify (which has 83 million paid subscribers) to compete, instead suggesting that the streaming music ecosystem still has room to grow.

Helping you start your day with music, Google has rolled out the most significant update to its Clock app by integrating Spotify, one of the largest music streaming apps.

An update is rolling out this week that adds a Spotify tab to the alarm sound options.

That said, you'll be getting the feature as long as both Google Clock and Spotify apps are up to date, and you're using Android 5.0 Lollipop or newer. When you stop the alarm, you can choose to continue playing and listening to the songs.
