Listening to music while being in bed is one of the most common ways of relaxation for the majority of people. It helps us rest and falls asleep easily, so we get our headphones and play our favorite beats to unwind or relax. But we probably don’t like the idea of dozing off and leaving it playing the whole night. If so, perhaps you’d like the idea of a music sleep timer.

Sleep Timer will automatically pause the media player on your phone after a set period of time so you can go to sleep listening to music or a podcast without fear you'll wake up to a dead battery and an empty playlist.

If you're an iPhone or iPad user, you can use the built-in timer in iOS to get the same effect. It’s pretty simple and here are the steps to set a sleep timer on iPhone and iPod:

Step 1Firstly, Open Apple Music and start playing any songs you like listening to.

Step 2open the iOS Clock app and tap on the Timer option at the bottom of the screen.

Step 5 Finally, tap Start to start the timer.

Now when the timer ends, whatever audio or video is playing will automatically stop. Moreover, your device will also be locked to avoid that your battery will get drained.

Although there is no built-in app for the Android device, you can still download a third-party app to set the sleep timer on Android. After searching for “sleep timer” in the Google Play store, you’ll find some results. Here we highly recommend you try a free ad-supported Android app called sleep timer (Turn music Off), which lets you fall asleep to your favorite music and best fits your needs and tastes. Here is how you can use it.

Follow these quick steps to set a sleep timer in Android:

Step 1Install the application on your phone, then launched it.

Step 2Set the timer via the circular icon and simply click the “Start” button to start the timer.
