Currently on my iphone it appears that have need to go to my profile and select settings in order to access the sleep timer. I would like to see access to the sleep timer appear somewhere on the Now Playing screen.

 

I don't know how the sleep timer is accesed on other platforms but this added conveneince could be useful on any.

Major +1 on this. I have Android, and with the latest update I honestly thought it had gone away. I had to search here to find out how to get there. The setting is extremely hard to find, it is inconvenient when you're trying to set it up when you're tired and trying to use it to go to sleep. It was in a convenient two-step location that was easy to find. I should need no more than two taps to then select how long my sleep timer should be. This might be silly but had I not found this post that would have been the last straw for me to cancel my subscription.

I also agree. You shouldn't have to go to searching for the timer. I also think it would be great if you provided a custom timer. On other platforms I have a timer that goes to 2 hours and has a custom setting as well.

Yes! I have to click 4 different screens to get to the sleep timer 😬 So frustrating every night 😕 they need a button for it on the home screen!!

Agreeing with HarryEDM, "Major +1 on this. I have Android, and with the latest update I honestly thought it had gone away.  I had to search here to find out how to get there. The setting is extremely hard to find."

Sleep timer is the #2 (actually maybe #1) most common interaction I ever do on the mobile app, second possibly only to selecting a station.

Agree that this needs to be placed on now playing screen.  Also, need to be acceptable to google assistant to allow the timer to be set via voice commands.

On Spotify, the sleep timer can be set in the "now playing" screen....do that please

Agree! So frustrating. Can Pandora voice be used to set the timer? I have tried but it doesn't seem to be a recognized command.
