It is a known fact that people can sleep better if they have some music playing while they are going to sleep, but nobody likes to leave their smartphone playing all through the night. With the help of a sleep timer, you can set the timer, say 30 minutes, and once the time reaches, the player will turn off the music. Popular music player app like YouTube Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, etc., has a built-in sleep timer. If you have a habit of listening to music when you are going to sleep, then the sleep timer will help you to curb battery draining on your phone.

Spotify and Amazon Music has a built-in Sleep Timer. It lets you turn off the music after a specific time. However, popular music apps like YouTube Music (free version) do not have the feature. So, if your favorite music player app does not have a sleep timer function, don’t worry. If you’re using an Android smartphone, there is a way to add a sleep timer to these apps.
