Google Clock to wake up Spotify users with songs


Google is calling these "musical alarms" which is just a fancy word for alarms with a song as the ringtone. If you're rocking the Android hardware you don't even need a premium Spotify account to use the Clock update - a free account will do just fine.

Under the Spotify tab, you can choose from "Recently Played" music, and curated morning playlists termed "Rise and Shine". What that means for you is that you no longer have to wake up to boring alarm sound in the morning. Well, Google might have just got the flawless solution for you.

Apple pulled back the curtain somewhat on its Apple Music streaming service, releasing numbers that firmly establish it as the number-two music streaming platform, behind only Spotify. When you go to the "Alarms" tab, you'll find suggestions you can choose from and you can pick any song, album, playlist, or artist to wake up to-and they've got over 35 million tracks to choose from! You can also search for a specific soundtrack by tapping on the floating search bar on the bottom right corner.

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. Perhaps Google wanted to test it with Spotify users before it invested the man-hours needed to include its own streaming services.

Once you turn off the alarm, you'll see an option to "Continue Playing." offering a seamless way to continue listening and set you up for a productive day with Spotify.

However, there is no reason to lose hope Google faithful as a Google spokesperson confirmed with 9to5Google that support for YouTube Music will be coming soon. But there's no word on the time frame, so until then, you are better off with Spotify.
