How To Set Alarm On Google Home With Music

Set Alarm On Google Home: If you’re not a morning person, you may prefer to avoid waking up to your device’s default alarm when you get up. Those looking for a solution may be interested in setting their favorite song as their set alarm on Google Home. You can do all this with a simple voice command.

This guide will show you how to avoid the dreaded default alarm on your Google Home by setting music as an alarm. Our discussion will also cover other options for Google Home alarms.

How To Set Alarm On Google Home Music

Alarms on Google Home can be set up in four different ways: general, media, character, and sunrise. A specific song can be set as an alarm on Google Home with just one voice command, rather than setting the alarm on the Google Nest display. The Google Nest display allows you to adjust the general default alarm only.

After activating your device, say Hey Google or OK Google, and then use this voice command: Set an exact time and date for your media alarm. Start Wake Me Up by Avicii at 8 AM tomorrow, for example.

Depending on your alarm frequency and media, you can use a variety of other commands. For example, in addition to songs, you can set playlists, bands, radio stations, genres, and other recurring media as alarms. For example, on a Google Home device, you can use the following voice commands to set music as an alarm:

  • Hey Google, set the alarm for Monday at 7 AM that plays Coldplay.
  • Hey Google, set a [name radio station] radio alarm for 9 AM tomorrow.
  • Hey Google, set a jazz music alarm for 8 AM on Tuesday.
  • Hey Google, set a media alarm for 7 AM every day. Google will then ask you which song you want to play at this time. You can answer a song, an album, a playlist, or a band.

You need to connect your Google Home speakers to Wi-Fi if you want to use the voice command. Media alarms are available on all Google Home speakers, and Google Nest displays in English, German, French, Spanish, and Japanese.

How To Google Home Media Alarm Turn Off

Your favorite song can wake you up or remind you what to do. You can turn off the alarm by saying, “Stop.” It’s possible, though, that you will have to say, “Hey Google, stop” if you wait too long. By default, your alarm will play for 10 minutes if you don’t tell it to sleep or stop.

A simple tap on the device can also stop your alarm. Tap the top of the Google Home 2nd generation to stop the alarm. For example, a Google Nest Mini can be stopped by tapping the center of the device. On the other hand, Google Home 1st generation owners must press and hold both sides of the device to stop the alarm.

The alarm will be turned off when you tap the top or right side of your Google Home Max. Tap the center if you want to use Google Nest Audio. Tap “Stop” on your Google Nest display if you have one.

When you want to snooze your media alarm, say, “Snooze.” You can also set how often the alarm goes off. If you have more than one alarm, your Google Assistant will prompt you to specify which alarm you want to cancel if you say, “Snooze for 10 minutes.” If you want to cancel an existing alarm, say, “Cancel my alarm.” Give your Google Assistant the exact time and date of the alarm you wish to cancel.

How To Google Home Alarm Setup with Spotify Music

Google Home will automatically play music from Google Play Music if you do not have a subscription to a music platform. This music app automatically links to your Google Home account if you have YouTube Premium.

You can link Spotify, Deezer, Pandora, and other music streaming platforms to Google Home. But first, you’ll need to use the Google Home app to set Spotify as your default music player. You can do this by following these steps:

  • Open the Google Home app and go to Account.
  • Click the Add (+) button in the upper-right corner.
  • Go to the Music and Audio section.
  • Select Spotify from the list.
  •  Click on Agree and Link.

Note: Both Android and iPhone users can use this method.

Google Home automatically links to your Spotify account once you log in. The playlists in your Spotify library can be scheduled as alarms once Spotify becomes your default music player. Spotify also allows you to set the alarm based on an artist, band, or song.

When setting the alarm, Google Home does not require you to mention your music streaming service. Instead, ask Google Home to play a song from Spotify, and it will pull it from its library.

Spotify Premium is also available for Google Home speakers if you have it.
