Alarm in the Google Clock App Not Working For Some Users following Android Oreo Update
Alarm is one of the most critical things that your phone does. It is essential to wake up on time so that your day goes as planned. Setting a wrong alarm might be disastrous at times. The Google Clock app is what most people on Android devices make use of to set alarms.
However, it is being reported that following the Android 8.0 Oreo OS update, a number of users are reporting that their Google Clock app’s alarm functionality isn’t working as intended.
Alarms set on the Google Clock app aren’t going off on time, as per some users. This has upset the users because it gets difficult to manage a proper daily routine without alarms in some cases. Be it waking up early in the morning, or setting up an alert to catch a flight in the evening – alarms are essential.
What is interesting here is the inconsistency of the alarms set by the Google Clock app. Sometimes the alarms tend to go off as early as hours in advance and sometimes they go off after the time you set them. Google is likely to release a fix for this bug soon.
A number of frustrated users have taken to the Google Play Store and have been leaving reviews pointing out this problem. Ever since the update to the Android Oreo OS there have been a number of bugs which have been found and it looks like the Google Clock app is the latest to suffer from Android Oreo bugs.
Earlier this month there were two major bugs spotted: One that consumes data connections even when Wi-Fi is connected and another which causes exchange mails to not sync with the Gmail app. However, while a number of users are facing this bug, we are yet to encounter a mistimed alarm on our Pixel smartphone.
