Google Adds Spotify to Its Clock App for Custom Alarms
Google today said is has added Spotify to the Google Clock app. This means people will be able to pick their favorite songs or playlists to wake them up. In order to get the feature working, people will need to download the latest version of the Spotify and Clock apps, and connect them on the phone. Once connected, people can browse their recently-played tunes, opt for a curated playlist, and set any of them as the alarm. When the musical alarm goes off, users can turn it off or keep on listening. The alarms are available to Spotify Free and Premium users. The feature is rolling out globally this week. Google didn't say if it will eventually allow subscribers to other music services, such as its own Google Play Music, to tap into their accounts for musical alarms.
