Spotify is today adding a basic yet nifty Sleep Timer feature to its iOS app (spotted by Thurrott.com). The feature has been present on its Android counterpart for a while now, and it is a welcome addition for iOS users who are used to either listening to music at bedtime or prefer to limit music playback within a stipulated time.
As the name suggests, the feature lets users set a timer to end playback at the end of a specific track, in five minutes, or at the end of an hour. The feature can be enabled by heading to the three-dot menu at the top right of the screen on Now Playing and select the Sleep Timer option.
The only way one could stop playback on iOS devices was through the Clock app. The “When Timer Ends” option allowed users to stop playing music. A native solution is much easier and more convenient for those that extensively used the Clock app to stop Spotify playback.
Since the feature has just started rolling out, it is possible that it will not be available to you right away. However, it should make it to all iOS and iPadOS devices sooner rather than later.
