Starting this month, a large number of consumers have spotted that Google’s native “Clock” app has failed and the alarms that have been set will not ring on time. Meanwhile, according to a recent report of MSPowerUser, Google confirmed that the officials have recognized this bug and will fix it in the near future.
Aside from this, the Google employee also suggested, on Reddit, that users choose the system’s built-in notification sound as the alarm ringtone. To be mentioned, this error mainly occurs on Pixel phones, but users of other brands of phones have also reported the same problem.
It’s reported that not only the alarm clock issue, but the countdown function of the Google “Clock” app also failed to ring. Besides, the Google employee also revealed that the cause of the bug is expected to be a problem with the Spotify integration function.
Until the Google Clock app bug is getting fixed, it’s recommended that smartphone owners switch to a third-party clock app in order to set an alarm clock. If you are also using Google Clock app for waking up in the morning, turn to Samsung Clock as it comes pre-installed on every Galaxy device.
