Google Clock’s Bedtime tab and Sunrise Alarm are now available for all Android phones
Google’s third Pixel Feature Drop for Pixel devices brought new features to the Google Clock app to help you get a better night’s sleep. Google said the feature would be available this summer for all Android devices, and they’re keeping their word. Today, Google announced that the Bedtime tab in the Clock app will be available for all devices.
With the Bedtime tab in Clock, users can track their screen time at night, maintain a consistent sleep schedule, and fall asleep to sounds from services such as Calm, Spotify, or YouTube Music. You can also turn on things like Do Not Disturb to limit notifications and a Grayscale mode to make your phone less appealing to read at night.
While the Bedtime tab in the Clock app is great for falling asleep, Google wants to make waking up pleasant as well. That’s where Sunrise Alarm comes in. The feature will present visual cues and play your favorite sounds or song 15 minutes before your scheduled wakeup time. The hope is to wake you up more gently, rather than using a jarring alarm at a specified time.
If you have a device running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher, you can download the Google Clock app from the Google Play Store link embedded below and start using the new features in the Bedtime tab starting today. If you have Digital Wellbeing installed, which is a requirement for any GMS device running Android 10, then you can turn on Bedtime mode in Digital Wellbeing’s settings or schedule it directly from inside the Clock app. For a full list of bedtime features in the Google Clock app, visit this support page.
