Music Fade and/or Finish Song in Sleep Timer
It would be nice to have the music fade to off when you set a sleep time for music play. Having a song abruptly stop causes me to wake up.
Another nice option would be to have the song finish---even if it goes over the time. "Alexa, stop playing music in 10 minutes.." She will finish what ever song is playing at 10 min.

The sleep timer on iOS fades out whereas when listening on an Alexa device it stops abruptly. Can this be rectified to fade out as in iOS?
John Tipper commented
The "Stop after 30 minutes" command give an abrupt cut of which when used for letting you drift off to sleep often had the opposite effect of waiking you you again.
Is it possible to have a "Fade out after 30 minutes" command which would fade out the sound instead of the abrupt cut off

Include fade out when books are read aloud also, please.

Fade in/Fade out essential, I fully agree with the other comments here. Please consider this.

You can set up a routine using "wait" and "system - volume" repeatedly decreasing the volume to achieve this. But yes, an auto fade with sleep timer would be better.

Fade out the music with sleep timer.

The fade out/in on the sleep sounds loop wakes me up. Can they overlap so the sound stays fairly constant?
Ingo Reinecke commented
Alexa stop after 5 songs. Could work as well.

Please add a fade-out option!!
Especially for the sleep timer!! Hard to stay asleep when the sleep sounds suddenly and abruptly just stop!
Fraser Gibb commented
A fade feature should be relatively easy to provide, and would be very useful.
Ben Babusis commented
Please consider this idea, the abrupt music cutoff with sleep timer is very jarring. I have programmed a routine to slowly decrease the volume, but this clunky and still the cutoff between level one and zero is too great. Would also suggest softer volume options. Alexa, volume 2%, would be a nice command, 5x softer than “level 1” for example.

Any sound that suddenly stops wakes me up. Having a fade out would mean that i could use my dot to listen to my white noise instead of using a separate phone app.
Having a configurable length fade out would be even better.
