With any main OS launch, regardless of rigorous testing and quite a few developer previews, it is not unusual for random points to come up. Some customers who’ve up to date their Pixel or Nexus units to Oreo have found an annoying bug whereby the alarm within the Google Clock app merely is not going off. And that is a fairly large downside if it is the one alarm app you employ.

A reader emailed us to say that their Pixel alarm clock has been inconsistent since updating to Oreo, with alarms set to lower than an hour forward generally going off and people set additional forward by no means going off. It appears they aren’t the one one. Listed below are some current critiques from the Play Store listing:

This was nice till it stopped working three days in the past. Immediately my morning alarm would not go off anymore and I used to be late for work for three days working.

Thanks for not setting my God rattling alarm off. Now I’ll have to elucidate to my boss why I missed work right this moment. Good day iPhone X!

For the reason that final replace, the clock app has been dismissing the alarms as quickly as they begin to go off. I’ve observed if a set an alarm a minute from now it really works. After I set an alarm for tomorrow morning it dismisses itself.

Crashes each time the alarm goes off.

After Oreo replace alarms now not go off!!!

I will not bore you with too a lot of them (there are at the very least 20 extra) as they’re all saying mainly the identical factor: since updating to Oreo my alarm is not working. Plenty of customers are saying they have been late for work due to it, too, which is not any small matter. There’s chatter about it on Reddit as effectively.

Not one of the AP employees have observed this difficulty to date, but it surely does look like pretty widespread. There’s nothing a lot you are able to do about it in the meanwhile, besides look ahead to Google to acknowledge the problem and work on a repair. Within the meantime, you will have to put in a again up alarm app clock and stick with it. My private favourite for a number of years has been Sleep as Android, which I exploit along with the inventory Android app to be further sure I will not oversleep (though I nonetheless do). There are plenty of other good options on the play retailer, too.
