I recently installed Google Clock and tried to connect it with Spotify. I struggled with it a lot, but finally after multiple times of receiving a message "Couldn't connect to Spotify. Try again later" I got it working by splitting screen between Spotify and Google Clock. However, even though both apps seemed to be working correctly afterwards, the following morning instead of hearing my chosen song, I heard beeping. I was using cellular data at that time. The next day the same story, but this time I was connected to WiFi. It seems that the bug takes place after some longer period of inactivity of the phone. When I was testing the feature scheduling alarms for e.g. the next minute, everything worked perfectly.
We're still seeing a couple of users reporting that they're having some issues with getting chosen Spotify content to play on their Google Clock alarm. It seems to be beeping instead of playing the track.
Because we now have enough examples and votes, we've moved this thread to the Ongoing Issues board to be tracked further.
If you're new to the thread and haven't already, can you let us know the following:
What exact Android device are you using?
What version of Spotify are you using?
Is Offline Mode enabled on the Spotify app?
Could you then:
Re-connect your Spotify account and authenticate use via the Clock app
Send a screenshot of the Alarm screen with your chosen content
We'd also suggest trying the workaround which @1231167044 has contributed...
"Found a temporary solution to get Spotify to work overnight. In the Google clock app, from the alarm screen, tap on the three dot menu icon, and click screensaver. My guess is that this keeps allows Spotify to run"
