YouTube, which is owned by Google, has begun to roll out a’sleep timer’ feature to its music streaming service YouTube Music.

According to 9to5Google, the functionality is now available for songs at the bottom of the Currently Playing overflow menu in the app.

Those who want to fall asleep while listening to music may find the sleep timer option handy.

The sleep timer function has the advantage of causing the music player to cease playing after a certain amount of time, allowing users to go asleep without having to worry about music playing continuously via their earbuds or speakers.

According to the source, the feature has not been widely rolled out and is presently only available to a small number of people.

Meanwhile, YouTube Music, its music streaming service, has begun to roll out the’real-time lyrics’ feature for Android and iOS.

The function is presently available to select YouTube Music members, according to reports, although it is not extensively available to all users.

It’s comparable to the real-time lyrics function on other music streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music.
