When was the last time you fell asleep listening to music? The sounds of your favorite artist can be a great way to wind down at the end of the day. Whether you love to fall asleep to relaxation music, singer-songwriters or Viking Metal, we invite you to enjoy our new sleep timer feature!

At Pandora, we are inspired every day by consistently bringing our listeners music they love. We’re also dedicated to listening to our listeners and personally answer every inquiry that comes in to our support team whether it’s via email (to the tune of more than 50,000 emails a month!) or our social channels. One area that gets us particularly excited is when we receive ideas from our listeners for new product features and improvements. Today I’m thrilled to share that we’re releasing a new version of our Pandora mobile app for both iOS and Android that contains one of our top-requested new product features from listeners: a Sleep Timer. With the new Sleep Timer in version 4.5 of our app, you can now fall asleep to the sounds of your favorite Pandora stations.

sleep timer imageHere’s how it works: when listening to a station, you’ll find the Sleep Timer in your options drawer in the top right screen corner. Just click the options link and select from 15, 30, or 60 minutes for your Sleep Timer. Then relax and drift off knowing we’ll play just the right amount of music for you.

We hope you like the Sleep Timer. We have more product features like this in the works, each being built with the purpose of making it easier for you to enjoy all the music you love, from morning until night, so stay tuned for more announcements. And please, keep the good ideas coming. As always, we’d love to hear from you.

Happy listening!

    It would be great if the sleep timer could work together with the alarm. I like to sleep to music but I can't set my pandora alarm and use the sleep timer. Easy fix would to have the option to automatically go to the alarm after the sleep timer ended

    I just hooked up Pandora in my retail shop with three awesome Sonos speakers. I'm playing Pandora from my computer. Because Pandora shuts off after so many hours, on my days off - it doesn't play because I'm not here to restart it. Is there a workaround with a timer or something????

      Hi Becky, Indeed there is! We have Pandora for Business - which eliminates that message you receive when you have been away from the computer. Email our Listener Advocates for more info: http://pdora.co/writeus -Katie
