Smart Clock - Alarm with Music, how?

Just got my Lenovo Smart Alarm Clock yesterday.  I must just be missing something, but I can't seem to figure out how to setup the alarm to play music from Spotify (or another source).

 

-When I go into the alarm settings on the device, my only choices are between the different built-in tones or "Random"

-When I go into the device settings on my iPhone Google Home App, there doesn't seem to be any way to even access the alarms setup on the device.

 

What am I missing?

 

Spotify is already linked to the device.  I have a bunch of other Google Home (both the mini and the Hub) devices and play Spotify on them without issue, so I know its all configured and linked correctly.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

I got it working with voice commands only, something along the lines of:

 

"Set alarm 10:00am and play highway to hell"

 

Let me know if you can work out the structure of this.

Thanks.  That did seem to work.  Its a bit awkward as the only way to do it, but does do the trick.  Thanks!

Re: Smart Clock - Alarm with Music, how?

If you just tell it to "set a music alarm," it will ask you what you want to play.  Once you specify your Spotify music (personally, I use a radio station on TuneIn), it will bring up the usual alarm screen, only with your music appearing in place of the preset alarm sounds.  I find this a much more intuitive method than remembering the exact command structure.

Re: Smart Clock - Alarm with Music, how?

Great info, I also wondered how to set this up. On a slightly different note, I am wondering how to get the music alarm to play longer than 10 minutes? Normally I let my clock radio alarm play on and it automatically turns off after an hour. Is there some way this can be set up?

Agreed. I too would like to be able to extend the length of a music alarm.
