How To Play Any Spotify Track For Alarm On iOS 9 iPhone

If you want to play any Spotify track for alarm on iOS 9 then you should first liberate your device using Pangu jailbreak tool. Those with jailbroken iDevice can install new jailbreak tweak called SpotAlarm that brings this functionality to your smartphone. 

The big advantage for Spotify users is that with SpotAlarm tweak installed they will be able to set any one song from Spotify to play when the alarm goes off at any time of the day when you set it.


Before you proceed note that if your device was updated to any of recent public firmware releases such as iOS 9.2 or 9.2.1 you won't be able to use SpotAlarm tweak because there is no jailbreak available for these platforms as of yet.

How To Play Any Spotify Track For Alarm In iOS 9

Step1: Navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and grab SpotAlarm for free of cost.

Step2: Once installed, the tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings app. There you can enable or disable SpotAlarm on demand. Also you can paste in the link to the Spotify song that you want to play when any of your alarms go off.

Step 3 : Now launch the Spotify app and find a song you want to use for alarms. Once selected, click on it to play it and launch the “Now Playing” interface.

Step 4 : Then, click on the ellipsis button “…” and you will see menu from there.

Step 5: Next, click on the “Share” button.

Step 6: In the new menu that appears, click on the “Copy Song Link” button to add the link to the song to your clipboard.

Step 7: Then paste that song link in the preferences pane in Settings.

Disadvantages:
  • SpotAlarm require a iOS 9 device which isn’t passcode or Touch ID protected so, it can play the song whilst device is locked.
  • You can only select one track to set as alarm and you can set more than one track.
  • After you dismiss the alarm, the song will still play unless you close it yourself.
So if want to play any Spotify track for alarm on iOS 9 iPhone you should take SpotAlarm tweak for a spin. Since it is free and you don't pay attention on its disadvantages it is great functionality to have on your jailbroken device.
