Getting ready to sleep but simply cannot do it? For some people, listening to soothing and slow songs, or podcast maybe can help them doze off with ease. Unfortunately, your playlist continues to play your songs on your mobile device even after you’ve fallen to sleep. Not only will it use up a lot of your Android phone or iPhone battery resources, but it is also no longer needed.
What you need is a sleep timer tool that will help you stop the music from playing automatically after certain amount of time on iOS or Android devices. For instance, you want to play songs for two hours. When you set the sleep timer, your playlist will stop after two hours, and the music will automatically halt.
