Setting an alarm on your Amazon Alexa device is a great way to stay on time. Thankfully, if the initial full volume alarm is a bit too much of a jolt to your system, Amazon does give you the option to set your Alexa alarms on specific speakers to gradually increase in volume.
Some of the images associated with the steps are included inline below. All images associated with these steps can be seen in the embedded YouTube video.

Steps to Set Alexa Alarm Volume to Gradually Increase
- Launch the Amazon Alexa app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.
- Tap the “More” icon in the menu along the bottom of the screen. A menu is displayed.
- Tap “Alarms and Timers” on this screen.
- Tap “Settings” at the bottom of this menu. You’ll see a list of your Amazon Alexa devices.
- Tap the device you want to set the Alexa alarm volume to gradually increase on. The Alarm Settings screen for that specific device is shown.
- Tap to turn on the toggle associated with “Ascending Alarm.” Going forward, any alarms played through this Alexa device will play with a gradually increasing alarm.
Benefits of Gradually Increasing Alexa Alarm
1. More Natural Wakeup
An alarm that slowly increases in volume replicates a more natural wakeup experience. As a result of this, you’ll wake up in a less stressful state and have more energy.
2. Less Jarring
Your Alexa alarm screaming at you at full volume from the minute it goes off can be stressful and jarring. As a result, you’ll be less disoriented when you wake up. Again, an alarm where the sound slowly increases will result in a more natural wakeup experience.
3. Less Likely to Disturb Others
Finally, nothing gets your day off on the wrong foot like incurring the wrath of roommates for your alarm waking them up. Setting your Alexa alarm to slowly increase reduces the risk that you’ll bother other people.
