Voice-enabled devices have been adopted faster than any other technology ever! Faster than the internet and even faster than mobile devices. Voice technology, like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Samsung Bixby, is the beginning of our future. It will fundamentally change the way we interact with our world!
Now that these devices are in millions of homes, they have become the best way to play sounds for sleeping like rain, ocean, rain, waterfall, and other relaxing sounds and music. These smart speakers are easy to use, convenient, and can automate mundane tasks to make our lives better.
These two skills are best for listening to rain for deep sleep or relaxation:
The Sleep Sounds: Rain Sounds skill by Voice Apps is amazing. The quality of the sound gives you that perfect balance between a natural sound of rain and the white noise you need to drown out background noises.
By default, the sound will play until you say "Alexa, Stop" and has a barely audible "loop" at around the one hour mark.
For only $0.99 (less if you are an Amazon Prime member), you can upgrade to a Premium Membership. This gives you a higher quality sound and eliminates the "loop" sound gap for a full 10 hours.
The Sleep and Relaxation Sounds skill gives you over 125 different sounds including Rain Sounds, Heavy Rain, Rain on a Tent, Rain on a Tin Roof, and Rainy Day.
With this skill, you can also combine sounds to create completely new ambiances. Our users love this feature!
Sleep Sounds also has a Premium Membership. For $9.95/year (less for Amazon Prime members) you get additional sounds, the ability to combine sounds, and our Guided Sleep feature. You also get higher quality versions of all the sounds and no sound gaps to wake you up.
Alexa makes it really convenient to listen to rain sounds at night. With an Echo Dot or Echo Show on your nightstand, you just have to say "Alexa, play Rain Sounds" and sleep is only moments away. The skill will play the perfec sleep-inducing sound to help you fall asleep quickly. There's no need to fumble with your phone or laptop to find the right YouTube video or playlist.
Sleep sounds played through YouTube or other streaming services may contain ads or stop playing after a short period of time. The Rain Sounds Alexa skill will play continuously and without any ads until you say "Alexa, stop" which means the sound will play all night, blocking any unwanted noises, and keeping you asleep.
If you want the easiest way to play the best rain sounds for sleeping, studying, or meditating, you need to get an Amazon Alexa. Alexa makes it so convenient to automate your entire bedtime routine! With a single command, you can turn off the lights, lock the doors, and start your rain sounds skill. The sounds of rains will play all night and keep you sleeping soundly.
If you are wanting to bring rain sounds into your home, you can rest assured that you will not be the only family member benefiting from them. Your entire family will be able to enjoy the soothing sounds of rain that can improve the mood, increase energy, slow frantic breathing and bring a host of other mental and physical benefits to your household.
