Does Spotify have a sleep timer feature?

Spotify implemented a sleep-timer feature for the first time back in 2019. It actually came to the Android version of the app before it hit Apple devices, with one of its original purposes being to preserve battery life.

This feature can be found on both iOS and Android. However, the Spotify sleep timer is not available on the web player or the desktop version of the Spotify app.

How long can you set the Spotify sleep timer?

Currently, you can set the sleep timer to end playback after 5, 10, 15, 30, 45 minutes, 1 hour or at the end of the track / podcast. There’s no way to set the Spotify sleep timer any longer.
