That’s why Spotify is introducing a fun feature for its Android app. Now you can program a pause for whatever it is that you’re listening. This timer is super useful because it’ll pause the content after a certain amount of time.

Pre-program a pause in any song or playlist

It should be noted that this new timer will be progressively available for Android smartphones. Therefore, if you still don’t see this option on your Spotify account, just wait a little longer. Locating this feature and activating it is really easy. All it takes is following a few steps:

  • Open any song’s play screen
  • Tap on the three dots located on the upper right side of the screen
  • Tap on the Timer option
  • Set a listening time


If a specific song is part of a playlist, the timer will affect that uninterrupted playlist. So, you can listen to any playlist and Spotify will pause it whenever you want.
