Here's how you change Android's default alarm tone to the one you want

If you have an Android mobile you can set your favorite song as an alarm tone, whatever its manufacturer.

This is possible thanks to the Clock app, one of the Google apps that you can install on your Android. You can download for free Clock su Google Play.

Although at first glance it looks like a normal clock app, this app from Google stands out in particular for its own sync with YouTube Music and Spotify.

With this feature, you can set any song or playlist on these streaming platforms as an alarm tone, including your favorite songs.

Furthermore, it is not necessary to download the songs to set them as an alarm clock, they are added directly from YouTube Music or Spotify.


It only takes seconds to download the Clock app and change your alarms to ring with your favorite song. The process is as follows:


  1. Open the Clock app on your Android phone.
  2. Click on the section Alarm.
  3. Click the alarm whose tone you want to change.
  4. Click on the bar Alarm sound, represented by a bell icon.
  5. A window will appear with the following options: Calm, YouTube Music and Spotify. Install the app you want to use to change the tone of the alarm, if you have not already done so. In our case, we installed Spotify.
  6. Now, when you click on the Alarm Sound option, the Spotify option, or the app you downloaded, will appear at the top. Click on Spotify and find the song or playlist you want to set as the alarm tone. By simply clicking on it, will be configured like a new tone.

This is the process you need to go through to set a song as an alarm tone on your Android.

This example was done with Spotify, but the process is the same whether you choose YouTube Music or Calm.

We must not overlook that from the section Sounds, to the left of Spotify, you can also add new tones or songs for the alarm, even if in this case they will have to be stored on the mobile phone.


As mentioned, the Clock app can be downloaded to any Android phone. This data and its synchronization with YouTube Music and Spotify make it a great option to change the default alarm tone of your Android mobile.

However, we must clarify that most Android manufacturers include a native clock app in their terminals which also allows you to add different tones for the alarm, and this is how we will see it with the most popular brands.
