 Google Clock app can now use Spotify for alarms
Google is adding Spotify integration to its Clock app for alarms. After your phone receives the update, you’ll see a new Spotify tab in the Clock app, right next to the Sounds tab. Swipe over to that tab, and you can select whichever songs or playlists you’d like to wake up to.
Most of us use our phones for alarm clocks in the morning, an alarm clock is a necessary evil. There’s nothing worse than hearing the obnoxious beeping when you’re deep in sleep. 

Does Google Clock work with Spotify Free or Premium?

Those with a premium Spotify account can select any track, album, artist, or playlist in the company's catalog to wake up to. Those who use the free version of Spotify can still take advantage of this feature but will have to settle for shuffle mode. It’s interesting that Google is not integrating with YouTube Music, which is their new music streaming platform. Spotify is obviously a lot more popular, but you’d think Google would promote their own service. 

This works for any Android phone running Android 5.0 (Lollipop and up) and you don’t even need a premium Spotify account to use it. A free one will do just fine. This new feature will roll out globally over the course of this week. So if everything goes to plan, you’ll be able to wake up to the soothing sounds of your favorite sound.
