[All Platforms][Other] Customizable sleep timer

Spotify has the option of putting on a sleep timer while listening to podcasts. I love this feature and use it often. The time increments go from five minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes to an hour. It would be nice to also have a customizable timer, much like audible does for their audiobooks. The 15 minute increments are a little long and it would be nice to sometimes put on a timer for 25 minutes or 30 minutes, etc. You could also put the option 'until the end of the playlist'.

Thanks again for your suggestion. We really appreciate it 🙂

There should be an option in the sleep timer to stop audio at the end of a queue.


I like the idea of having sleep timer bring up a widget with small hand and big on clock. You drag to spin either one and set the time you want.

If that is not implemented change the choices to end of song; 10, 20, 30 minutes;1, 2, 3, 4 hours
IN ADDITION I would like access to the timer not be buried under the currently playing song. Rather have it at the top level of the home screen or your library. Or even queue


To be able to set my own time would be nice, one hour is too short sometimes.
