If you prefer to be gently awoken to the soothing sound music instead of being jolted awake by a loud and obnoxious alarm, Pandora has added just the feature for you.
Pandora Radio users on iOS will be happy to hear that today’s newly released 5.1 update has added a new “alarm clock” feature to the music streaming app. Users will be able to pick any station they want to wake up to and have it automatically play at a desired time, all still for free.
Here’s the update’s official description:
- By popular demand, our new alarm clock lets you start your day with Pandora
- Pick one of your favorite stations to wake up to – if you like what you hear, you can keep the music playing
- Need a few extra minutes of shut eye? Hit snooze to catch more zzz’s
- Use with the sleep timer to listen to music you love morning and night
If you haven’t tried out Pandora before, you can download the app here for free. Just remember that it’s only open to residents in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand.
