  • And more depending on how you want to use it It’s a handy tool when your hands are tied – such as when you are on a long run or cooking.

Wake Up to Your Favorite Track

My favorite Spotify integration will most definitely have to be this, with the Google Clock app. If you have the Spotify app installed on your Android device, you can now pick the song you would like to wake up to. As for how to select a track from Spotify as your alarm tune, well, tap the ‘alarm sound’ option while setting up an alarm and you will see a new ‘Spotify’ tab here. You’ll see all your recently played tracks under this tab. You can tap to listen to the same and select your alarm tune via the streaming service.

Find Fresh Music

More often than not, Spotify Playlists are curated by the employees of the app and also individual users. And chances are that you’ll end up discovering fresh new artist and songs, thanks to Spotify’s unique algorithm of discovering new talents. So make sure that you tune into the weekly playlist.

Activate the Google Assistant With your Voice

One of the coolest things about Google Assistant is that it allows us to do many tasks hands-free. But, what’s the point when we need to use both of our hands to activate it? Fear not, as the TicWatch Pro 3 gives you the option of activating Google Assistant just by saying, “Ok, Google.” To turn that on, go to:

  • Settings
  • Personalization
  • And toggle “Ok Google” to on

Share Podcasts with Timestamps

Spotify is fun not only for listening to music, but also for enjoying your favourite podcasts. And if you’re listening to your new favourite podcast and want to share a really funny segment with your friends, you can now do that with timestamps. Simply tap on the share button in the player, and enable the toggle for sharing with timestamps. Then you can share the link via any messaging app of your choice. Your friend will then simply be able to tap on the link and they will be taken directly to the timestamp that you want them to listen to. Cool, right?

Experience the lossless sound quality

Tap on the “Menu” option to expand the menu and then select the “Music Quality” settings. Then do change the music quality to Normal, High, or Very High.

Take Advantage of DND (Do Not Disturb)

Do Not Disturb is a feature that you can find on smartwatches and smartphones alike. And, as the name suggests, it prevents others from disturbing you by temporarily muting notifications. To enable DND (Do Not Disturb), all you have to do is:

  • Bring up the quick actions by swiping down from the home screen
  • And tapping on the “Do Not Disturb” icon (A circle with a horizontal line) And you can easily go back to normal by disabling that feature in the very same way that you turned it on in the first place.

Download tracks for offline use

Archive Discover Weekly Playlist

Spotify probably has the best discovery algorithms among all streaming services and it shows off the same by compiling a ‘Discover Weekly’ playlist with new artists and tracks – every week. This playlist refreshes every Monday and if you don’t save a track which you liked, then it might vanish the next week. So, here’s a nifty trick to automatically save tracks from the ‘Discover Weekly’ playlist. All you need is to link your Spotify account to IFTTT (Free, Android and iOS), search for all Spotify recipes, and activate the ‘Archive Spotify Discover Weekly tracks’ recipe. All of the tracks recommended in this playlist are saved in another Spotify playlist, so no worries if you didn’t save some of the tracks you liked. Just go to the Discover Weekly Archive playlist, which is regularly updated through IFTTT, and find that sweet melody again. SEE ALSO: 10 Cool IFTTT Recipes For Google Assistant
