My Question or Issue

The sleep timer has disappeared? It was definitely available (I always use it), now after re-installing Spotify it is gone. It's like the app is glitching (see below screenshot) - when clicking on the 3 dots it's not bringing up the full menu, you can see the bottom inch or so is like frozen on the previous screen, and you can't scroll down the menu (black background part of scree) to get to where the the sleep timer was etc. OS and Spotify App are all latest versions & have tried re-installing.

Hey, @Sploblet 
Welcome to Spotify Community and thanks for reaching out here!

Could you try to clean the caches and data from Spotify on your device? You can do it on:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Apps
  3. Search for Spotify
  4. Tap Storage
  5. Clear Storage and Clear Cache

After doing it, reboot your device and check if the issue persists...

 

If you have any other further questions or need more help, let me know! I'd love to help!

Best Regards,

Hi,
I am facing this issue as well.
I am on Android 10 and using the latest version 8.5.36.747.
After switching to a new phone I don't have a sleep timer option anymore.
I tried you suggestions @hezorg, but that didn't help.
Best regards,
Alex

Hey, @hanicht 

Initially, please, do the following:

  • Play a song
  • Go to the Now Playing View
  • Click on the three dots in the top-right corner

If you don't see the sleep timer option, send me a screenshot which shows this, as @Sploblet has done above.

And thanks for the information provided about your OS and app.

 

Keep me posted, please!

 

Kind Regards,

Hello, @hezorg ! The "Sleep Timer" option appeared out of nowhere today. I have previously tried removimg and reinstalling the app many times. I do not know what was wrong nor how the option appeared again. Everything seems to be working now. Thank you for your help.

Hello again. After the latest update, the sleep timer disappeared again. This is so frustrating.!

Luan

Hey again, @iPearl 

Sorry for the delay... Are you running a Beta/Alpha version of the Spotify app on your device?

 

Keep me posted! 🙂

I don't know what did the trick, but the sleep timer appeared again. I reinstalled several times.

Hello, 

I'm experiencing this issue on a:
Samsung S21

Android version 11

Spotify version 8.6.48.796

Is there any other known troubleshooting? Thanks

Jeremy

Hi there folks,

 

Thank you for your replies in this thread. We just came across it.

 

In this case we suggest that you perform a clean reinstall of the app. This will make sure there's no old cache files causing this.

 

If that doesn't do the trick and you have an SD card we suggest that you uninstall the app > turn off your phone > take out your SD card > turn on the phone again (without the SD card) > reinstall the app since the card can be corrupted.

 

Let us know how everything goes 🙂

​​​​​​​Take care!

My sleep timer is missing as well. Not sure if it was ever there cuz I'm trying to use it for the first time. I have cleared cache, uninstalled and reinstalled, and rebooted two times now. No SD cards are involved.

 

I just upgraded to Android 12 last night

Spotify version 8.6.74.1176

Alex

Hey @Happyahab,

 

Thanks for the post.

 

Can you share a screenshot of how the following menu looks:

Play a track > open the Now playing view, so that you can see the album cover art > cleck the 3-dot menu and scroll down.

 

Cheers.

Thank you for reaching out Alex.  Actually this looks like it's working, mostly.  Now that I dig into it the sleep timer option is available for songs, however it is NOT available for podcasts.  I had assumed it wouldn't matter.  Is there any reason it does (song vs podcast)?
