With Spotify’s sleep timer, you can stop playing music after the default time has elapsed. We’ll show you how to configure and use this feature on your iPhone, iPad and Android phone.
The sleep timer in Spotify is basically the timer of your music. When the timer expires, it stops everything running in the app. You may want to use this feature at bedtime, as this will ensure that your music stops playing when you fall asleep.
Use of sleep timer in Spotify
Sleep timer is only available in Spotify’s iPhone, iPad and Android app.
To use the feature, first open the Spotify app on your phone. In the Spotify app, tap a song to get it started. Then, below, tap on the “Play now” bar.
On the “Running Now” screen that opens from the top right corner, select the three dots.
Scroll down the three dot menu, then tap on “Sleep Timer”.
A “Stop Audio In” screen will open. Here, you can tell when Spotify should stop playing music. Your options are 5, 10, 15, 30, and 45 minutes. You also have the option of 1 hour.
Select “End of track” if you want Spotify to stop playing after the current music track has finished playing.

If you want to turn it off before the timer expires, open the same three dot menu and select “Sleep Timer”. Then tap “Turn off timer”.
And so you use this small but very useful feature in Spotify on your mobile devices!
