Spotify is the world’s leading audio and podcast platform and its users create their playlists every day, consult the contents of interest and enjoy the music hosted on the platform.
Of the thousands of songs hosted there, some get more plays than others, and it could be because they’re by much more popular artists, are recent releases, or are just plain trendy.
For this reason, a trick has started circulating on social networks that very few users knew about this application and Android devices, namely that that favorite song can be selected as an alarm tone on the mobile phone.
What should be done to change that boring tone with which people usually get up is very simple and you don’t need to download files or other applications, you just have to make sure that the latest update of the application is installed on the mobile.
Steps to set a Spotify song as an alarm tone
- Open the native alarm app on your phone Android.
- Now, click on the plus (+) icon located in the upper right corner.
- Proceed with setting the alarm, add a name, the time, and the days when the alarm will sound.
- You also have to define other additional settings like vibrate or snooze.
- The next step is to click on the “Alarm Sound” section.
- There a new window will appear with two options: “Spotify” and “Tone”, tap the first one.
- Finally, find your favorite song with the “magnifying glass” tool and select it as your ringtone.
Spotify will now turn live broadcasts into a podcast
Spotify has announced the launch of a new content publishing tool on its service, which will allow audio clips or live broadcasts to be converted into podcasts.
At the end of 2021, the streaming content platform announced the purchase of the Australian platform Whooshkaa, which allows radio stations to transform audio into podcasts on demand.
The company is aware that radio listening habits have changed “gradually” and that it is increasingly common for users to do so use their digital devices to listen to streaming content according to their schedule and availability.
“This partly explains the tremendous growth in the podcast industry: creators, publishers, and platforms are responding to public demand,” he said in a statement.
To meet user needs, they have now announced that publishers with an account in their Megaphone podcasting service – for professionals and tools dedicated to publishing, measuring, and monetizing their businesses – can now access this technology to convert audio into podcasts.
Spotify believes this solution allows users to stream and reach new audiences, unlock monetization opportunities and allow their fans to access content from anywhere.
Spotify also recently launched a new series of custom playlists titled “Niche Mixes,” which combine listener favorites with yet-to-be-discovered music, and are intended to accompany specific activities or any time of the user’s day.
In this sense, the music platform in Stream already offers personalized playlists, created by the application itself, with which users can listen to music according to their mood, your feelings or discover new artists, for example with the “Mood Mixes” or “Genre Mixes” charts.
Now, Spotify has added Niche Mixes to Spotify Mixes so that no matter what time of day or what activity users are doing, they can accompany it with custom playlists that combine “everything Mixes has to offer playfully.”
As the platform explains in a statement on its blog, Spotify spawned this feature to offer listeners “tens of thousands of exclusive mixes” based on “pretty much anything you can think of” from a list to sing while driving to a list to run to the beat of 80s music.
