Google Clock now supports Spotify for alarms

Whats interesting is that Google chose to release Spotify integration before its own Google Play or YouTube Music streaming services. Since then, the service has received quite a bit of criticism, especially from those who are already subscribed to Google's Play Music service.

Obviously you'll need an account to do this, so make sure it's logged in and ready to be linked. It comes pre-installed in some devices, but it can also be downloaded from the Google Play Store for all Android mobile users.

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.

Tap on the Spotify tab.

To try it out, just open the Clock app, connect and authenticate your Spotify account, head over to the Alarms tab, and make your pick. This feature works for both Free and Premium subscribers. When doing so, users will be able to choose what quality they want stored (Low, Medium, or High settings).

Once your alarm goes off, Google says you'll also have the option to "continue listening to Spotify throughout your day".

It's certainly a welcome new feature.

Anyway, the update should be available for any devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and above, so that covers most people at this point. Last but not least, the layout of the YouTube Music app will be refreshed, as Google plans to reorganize how albums, songs, and playlists are arranged by adding a few more options that allow filtering by alphabetical order and genre.
