YouTube Music’s original goal was for the app to be able to offer the same features as Google Play Music before users switch from the latter to the former. But before that could happen, Google shut down Google Play Music. However, one particularly wellreceived feature from the nowdefunct Play Music app appears to be poised to make its way to YouTube Music.
While browsing the latest version of the YouTube Music app that supports the media player that will be found in the upcoming Android 13 update, 9to5Google found the following code: “res/layout/timer_status_bottom_sheet.xml”, which hints that the sleep timer will appear in the YouTube Music app in soon.
On Google Play Music, setting the sleep timer required going into the main settings to set it. Hopefully enabling this in YouTube Music will be faster. The found code does show that the countdown timer will be visible to the user, who will have the option to add five extra minutes to the timer or cancel it. Apparently, the timer may be similar to the sleep timer in the Android version of the Apple Music app.
The sleep timer is great when you don’t want your phone to run all night after you fall asleep. This can prevent the battery from being drained during sleep.
