I've been using Spotify as an alarm for ages, but for some reason recently no matter how much I turn the volume down before I go to bed, it comes on in the morning SO loud that it's scaring me awake. So much so that Google can't hear me shouting to stop the alarm. I've also found in general that Google doesn't respond as well as it used to, but that's a separate issue.
I just want to know how to use music for an alarm without jumping awake every morning 😂
This is not the experience we want you to have, let me help you. A few questions: which Nest speakers are we working with? When did your issue begin? Were there any recent changes made?
It would help a lot if you could do a sequential reboot first:
If the issue persists, try doing a factory reset to restore your Nest speaker or display to its original settings. See this guide on how to reset your device. Redo the setup once done.
Let me know how it goes.
