Get your favourite Spotify playlists as your Google Clock alarm

Google is calling these "musical alarms" which is just a fancy word for alarms with a song as the ringtone. This new feature for the Clock app is available for both the free Spotify users and the folks who subscribe to Spotify Premium.

Under the Spotify tab, you can choose from "Recently Played" music, and curated morning playlists termed "Rise and Shine".

Are you also bored with your alarm tune? That means you'll have the ability to specify whether you want to stream or download your songs in low, medium or high quality settings.

To get started, you must have the latest Google "Clock" app and Spotify installed.

Whats interesting is that Google chose to release Spotify integration before its own Google Play or YouTube Music streaming services. Once done, you can head over to the "Alarm Sound" section where you will find two tabs - Sounds and Spotify.

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.

This feature will be rolling out globally, and will be available on devices with Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and above. And once you turn off the alarm, you'll have the option to continue to listen to Spotify. Well, they don't, which is weird and surprising.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson has also told 9to5Google that YouTube Music will be receiving a similar integration into Google Clock in the near future. That's good news if you're the type to waste precious minutes in the morning-that could be used for getting ready-looking for just the right song before hitting the shower.
