How to Set Echo Studio Sleep Timer

The Amazon Echo Studio smart speaker provides a sleep timer that you set and cancel with your voice!  You use it by asking Alexa to play an internet radio station, podcast, flash briefing, or some other streaming service. Then, once the media is playing, you ask her play for just the time you say.   And of course, use the wake word your speaker is set to respond to.

How to Set Echo Studio Sleep Timer

Here are some sample commands that we checked to work with our Alexa Echo Studio speaker.

  • Alexa, set sleep timer five minutes. [The speaker plays for five minutes, then stops.]
  • Okay Alexa, set sleep timer thirty minutes. [The Studio plays for thirty minutes then goes silent.]
  • Alexa, set sleep timer one hour. [She sets a sixty minute sleep timer, plays for an hour, and then goes silent.]
  • Hey Alexa, create sleep timer ninety minutes. [Sets a sleep timer for 90 minutes, then the speaker goes quiet.]
  • Alexa, cancel sleep timer. [Cancels sleep timer if one is pending.]

When setting a sleep timer, you can use verbs like Set and Create   in your voice commands.  When removing a sleep timer, use verbs like   Cancel.  If you ask to cancel a sleep timer when none is set, Alexa will respond, “There’s no sleep timer set.”

When you set a sleep time with one of the above commands, the Amazon Studio answers back as follows: “Okay.  I will stop playing in [specified time].” That is, if you say something like, “Alexa, set sleep timer ten minutes,” to your speaker, she replies, “Okay.  I will stop playing in ten minutes.”

Note that you cannot set a sleep timer unless it is playing some media.
