Noisli is a free Google Chrome extension to play soothing sounds and set timer to play those sounds. By playing such sounds, your body and mind will feel relaxed, and by setting the timer, you can motivate yourself to complete a task within the time limit.
One fantastic feature of this extension is that Timer and sounds can be used separately. So you can make use of timer to set deadline to finish a particular task and play soft sound(s) when you want to relax. Thus, this Chrome extension helps you to stay calm and improve the productivity.
There are some similar websites, like Relax.li, to play soothing sounds, but Noisli comes with many great features. For example, you can mix multiple sounds to create and play combo, and can set desired time limit to play those sounds. Different categories of sounds (Productivity and Relax) are available to choose from. Apart from this, you don’t have to keep open a particular tab to play those sounds. This extension plays the sound in background and stops sound automatically.
