Is there any way, and if not - is there any official wishlist thread - so I could make Spotify stop playing music after some time (say: 2 hours)?
Reason is very simple - I tend to play music when going to sleep, and it would be great if it stopped after some time, to avoid playing all night long into the morning.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There's already an idea about a sleep timer here. Make sure to add your vote, since the more votes an idea gets, the more likely it is to be implemented. More info on how ideas work on Spotify can be found here.
In the meantime, and as @Sarahliz064 suggested, you can create a playlist with songs that amount to how long you want it to play. Just make sure you have Autoplay and Repeat turned off.
All the best!
Hi there, we have an ideas forum in which you can make suggestions to improve the user experience or suggest new features. What you are talking about has already been suggested in the forum and I suggest you add kudos to the idea to raise it's profile for a native timer.
The idea is actually on the back burner, but there are other apps to cater for your need such as:
if you have an iphone or apple product, you can go to clock, set a timer and under alarms scroll down to click "stop playing". after the timer is done, your music will go off. however, there is no way if this is on a laptop.
You actually can on windows!!! I have 8.1 and when i connect to my speaker to play music just set an alarm and it will mute the music. It won't turn it pause it but it does turn the music off. I haven't tried it with just a computer but with a blutooth speaker it works.
you have to choose "stop playing" as the alarm tone....it's near the bottom of the list.
Thank you, this is exactly what i needed 😊👍🏼
Thanks so much this helped a lot!!!
If you are using an Android device you can try this app:
You can read more about it here: http://sleeptimerforandroid.com/
It lets you set a timer and then it fades out the music and pauses the player after the times has passed. You can lock your screen and everything. Also it is free
I play it when I go to sleep but then I can't turn it off because I am asleep so it runs till morning then I get annoyed
You can actually just close the app after you have started the timer!
Also, I am working on an update for the app which will bring additional features, including a "close app" option 🙂
Hope this helps
Best thing is to download Pandora they seem to be a few steps ahead of spotify. It has sleep and wake timers
Please, I use IOS. Not Android.
Ok, but what about for Windows on PC?
