Can't find a switch-off timer

Hello,

sorry for being a total idiot here. I found every single setting I expected, and much more, in my brand new Z1 Compact... with the single exception of an option for the phone to switch itself off after a period of time (useful for falling asleep with music or a podcast). I'm assuming every phone has it nowadays, and I simply must have missed it somehow.

 

Many thanks in advance!

There's a sleep timer option but not one to switch off the phone

Settings - Display then Sleep, Tap that then you can adjust the sleep timer

Just checked: unfortunately it concerns the display only, thus the music keeps playing (all night long).

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

Unfortunately there is no switch of timer as default in Xperia Z1 compact. Perhaps you may find a 3rd party music player with a sleep function for the music on Google Play.

Thanks Alexander, that's a start!

And they definitely exist, e.g.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ch.pboos.android.SleepTimer

Re: Can't find a switch-off timer

The "Switch-off timer"  would be a great feature for the Walkmann-App!

Other missing  features for walkmann:

- switch-off timer

- podcast

- variable playback speed
