Due to a problem in Google Clock, Android users are allegedly missing their alarms. Users of Google Clock have reported the issue on the app's Google Play Store listing, ranking it one star and decreasing the app's overall rating. The reports come from Pixel smartphone owners as well as users of OnePlus, Oppo, and other Android smartphones.

According to Android Authority, many users have begun to leave one-star reviews on the Google Play Store to express their dissatisfaction with the Google Clock app. One of the most prevalent complaints related to this issue is "alarms not sounding". A Reddit post has been made to describe the problem, with other users joining in with similar experiences. It appears that the problem is caused by customers' Do Not Disturb (DND) settings, as well as the usage of a third-party app for alarm sounds, such as Spotify.

One user even claimed that he lost his job as a teacher due to this problem, which caused them to miss two-morning class schedules. Users report that standard app troubleshooting procedures such as uninstalling and reinstalling the app, clearing cache, and changing settings do not appear to be working.

Google is aware of the Clock problem and is working on a solution. However, consumers continue to rely significantly on alarms to keep track of their daily schedules. The immediate answer will be to download a third-party programme to handle the warnings until Google publishes a patch for its app. For the time being, Android applications such as Alarmy, AlarmMon, and Sleep can be downloaded. However, before installing the programme, consumers should check the reviews of that specific software.
