My Question or Issue

All of a sudden, my alarm clock won't play the song I had chosen to wake up to. I first got a beeping sound. When trying to problem solve (delete apps, clean storage, turn phone off and of), I can't get any sound to play if I have chosen a Spotify song. It worked for the last month, and just stopped today. I can sometimes get the alarm to play a song if I have Spotify open. But I didn't used to have to have Spotify open. Any help would be great.

Same exact problem with me. Song even says it's playing when I set my alarm, but no audio. Seems like it's pretty recent problem you're the first message on these forums I've seen with the same problems as me. Happened to me just yesterday as well.

I'm having the same issue. Spotify still plays normally but won't work through the alarm app. I'm thinking it's a Pixel problem rather than a Spotify problem. I could be wrong though as I am in no way technologically inclined.

Spotify did have an update two days ago might be something on their end crossing the wrong wires somewhere.

My wife and I are both Android users on the Google pixel 2. Our alarm clock wakes us up to beeping and no longer does so to Spotify.

In addition, the sleep timer built-in to Spotify does not turn off the music after the set time (one hour). Thank you.

Same problem here. I posted about it this morning. Seems to me that when Spoitfy is no longer running in the background it will not wake up and play through the alarm clock. The alarm clock works fine with YouTube music so I have to assume it is a prblem with Spotify after the recent update. On Pixel 3XL USA

Same issue. Seemed to happen right around this past update. Tried restarting the phone first, then reinstalling the app, niether worked. It was amazing not waking up to an alarm. Please, Spotify, fix this asap.

Same issue for me.

I upgraded my samsung S6+ for a S10+ yesterday and thought it was why it stopped working but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one.

I got a Spotify update this morning and I thought it would be fixed. Unfortunately it wasn't. Still not working with Google alarm clock.
