Google's Clock app is seldom updated and hasn't received anything in the way of new features for a long time. Next, select the Spotify tab and choose the songs or playlist that you want to set as you new tone.

As Google offers its own music streaming service, Google Play Music, it is still curious to see the company opt to integrate with a competing platform. Today, Google has announced Spotify integration in their own Google Clock app, which should make mornings a little more enjoyable. Well, Google might have just got the flawless solution for you. Within the Spotify section, people can choose from the music they've recently played with the app. You also don't have to be a Spotify Premium user to benefit from this update, as it's something both premium and free users will be getting. YouTube Music takes things one step further by leveraging the vast collection of music videos on YouTube as well but many users didn't like that a lot of features that they expected from the streaming service were missing.

After switching off your alarm, you'll have the option to switch the music off for good, or keep listening throughout your day. The feature is available to both free and premium Spotify users, but you will be required to have the Spotify app installed and connected to an account for this to work.
