YouTube Music Gears Up For Mass Update

Google Clock app can now use Spotify for alarms

Google Clock is introducing a new feature that allows you to connect your Spotify account and wake up to whatever playlist you wish. "This has been a top Spotify user request for years, and we can't wait to see music fans picking their favorite tracks, artists, and playlists to kick-start their day".

Spotify's Vice President of Business Development, Jorge Espinel, said: "We're excited to bring the ability to personalise your alarms on the Clock app from Google with the incredible music catalogue from Spotify".

Google has begun rolling out an update to its stock Clock app that integrates Spotify so you can choose your own song to wake up to in the morning.

Google Clock has partnered with Spotify to make that morning alarm easier to handle. The feature is surprisingly well thought, letting users choose from their own playlists and music library, as well as Spotify's curated morning playlists.

Google's Clock app comes preinstalled on some Android devices.

Cook dismissed the idea that Apple has to steal users from Spotify (which has 83 million paid subscribers) to compete, instead suggesting that the streaming music ecosystem still has room to grow.

Once the alarm is disabled, you will be given the option to "Continue playing". It's supported on Android 5.0 and newer devices.

Moreover, a Google spokesperson mentioned to 9to5google that YouTube Music would add a similar kind of Google Clock integration. Even if you're a loyal Google Play Music or YouTube Music user this is still good news because with Spotify free you won't be left out in the dark. But if you don't see what you want in the former, you can always go straight for the search button at the bottom of the screen.
