Customizable sleep timer

Status: Good Suggestion

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.

1 hour is too short. Considering we’re paying a premium, isn’t this one of the basic things for spotify to have? It’s hard enough to get the sleep timer function in spotify, why should we ask -fight?- again with spotify for something so basic (such as set up our own preferences on the sleep timer), that other apps have as their basic service?

 

Again spotify, this is NOT a new idea. Just a BASIC feature for MUSIC APP that somehow doesn’t cross your mind? I don’t get why we have to “fight” you for something like this🤷‍♀️

  • When putting on meditation music for my child to relax them at bed time I find that the 60 minute sleep timer isn't long enough. It would be ideal if you could add in an option of "custom" so we can set our own sleep timers. We are all different and set times won't work for everyone so allowing us to create our own time would be ideal for people all around the world

It would be awesome if you could set a custom sleep timer, for example after a certain song in your list or queue.
