[All Platforms][Other] More options for Sleep Timer control

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' or 'until the end of the queue'.

Hey! Looks like your idea is growing up fast and it's amazing! We are going to change its status to 'Good Suggestion' now and we hope it continues being supported by more and more users.
Thanks again for your suggestion. We really appreciate it 🙂

More information about how the Spotify Idea Exchange works can be found here.


Currently spotify has seven options: a timer for 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, one hour or until the end of the song. However, I highly doubt I’m the only one who would prefer more options, such as perhaps being able to set a timer yourself. The layout could be similar to the timer of the clock app, where you can choose the duration for the songs playing of up to 24 hours.


Apart from this, a second feature could be possible, where the music starts playing after a certain time. This could be used as an alarm, where the spotify user wakes up to the sound of their favourite song.


Sleep Timer is already a nice feature but it can further be improved by adding more options, including the following:

  1. More/Additional Preset Timers: 1hr 30 mins, 2hrs, etc.
  2. Custom Duration: User can input number of minutes or hours (e.g., 70 mins, 2hrs, 2hrs 30 mins, etc.)
  3. End of Queue: User can add songs to a queue and put sleep timer to "End of Queue" such that it only encompasses tracks that are added to the queue
  4. End of Playlist: this comes in handy for user created playlists and other playlists. 

Please consider these ideas or any related variations. Thank you!
