UPDATE: I raised my review now that I've figured out how to get this to play all night. The app tells you that you can say "Alexa, ask Thunderstorm Sounds to loop" as a command. That's how I initiated the skill the first time. It played, but it didn't loop. The next night, I said "Alexa, open Thunderstorm Sounds" and then once it started playing, I said "Alexa, loop on". And then it looped to infinity all night. It does fade all the way out and all the way back in when it reaches the loop, but since the track is an hour long, you will mostly likely be asleep by the time this fade-out happens. However, if you are a very light sleeper, you may be awakened by this. Otherwise, great sound quality - better than our sleep machine, which we have no replaced with Alexa.
Creates a peaceful & calm atmosphere for bedtime or relaxing. Lots of rain sound with rolling thunder that isn't too harsh or loud. I really like that the sounds are not repetitive & have natural variation.
I have suffered from insomnia my entire life. When I tell you that Thunderstorms Sounds is on a continuous loop, yes Alexa can do that, I am not joking. Whenever I find myself not falling asleep in a reasonable amount of time, I just say, "Alexa, play Thunderstorms". I cannot tell you how long it takes for me to fall asleep, because I am, well asleep! But isn't that the whole point? Thunderstorms relaxes and soothes to active mind to the point that it allows one to fall asleep. but stay asleep! I cannot recommend it more highly! Kudos to the developers!
Ok, so - if you think my review's title is weird, then it's clear you had a much better search experience than I did because it took me forever to find this little gem! It's so simple I am in complete and total love! When bedtime comes I just say "Alexa, open Thunderstorm Sounds" and within a second or two I'm on my way to relaxation. There's actual thunder sounds and it's not on a loop that I've discovered, although admittedly I bet I'm asleep within 5 to 15 minutes, it's still worth noting because of all the crappy apps I've gone through on my journey to this app - the last one I'll need for as long as I can see. Give it a try and super 2 thumbs up Mr. Developer!
The thunderstorm sounds has been a great way to help me fall asleep and sleep all throughout the night. I keep it on loop and just let it play until I get up in the morning. So relaxing and very calming sounds. The thunder sound have zero negative impact on my PTSD which is a major plus. Other ones I had tried the sounds of the thunder were to loud. If you own an Echo that is a great skill to enable.
Love it very much. I do hope that a loop of a single white noise like a fan will be soon on the list of skills. I have the white noise skill but it cycles to all the other sounds and I have to continue to start it back to the fan. I woke up a few times to the train sound. But the thunder storms is a very great sound to sleep to
Ain't technology grand? Who would have thought 10 years ago one device would be coloring my world with color (Echo works my Hue lights), playing my music, reading my books, and now bringing nature into my house? I love it all! The theunderstrom goes well when with my blue Hue. I love the sound but the true test is that one of our cats hates thunder. I really have to comfort him and hope he will settle in. It might actually help him get over his fear. Yah for Amazon Echo, now called Computer!
