just called Clock, yeah. I frustratedly use it because Google killed my actual favorite clock app Timely. Still looking around for a proper alternative
People without a US phone number can also use Find My Device and Clock, or equivalent, to do these things.
For me, the default Clock app's little icon animations when you change tabs are a neat detail that gives it some personality.
It has been in the play store for quite a while, actually.
Why don't you just install a different alarm app? It doesn't sound like you're using the standard android clock app (the one made by google). The android clock app makes you swipe, not tap to dismiss or snooze.
Timely is the app I use. It's sorta third party. I say sorta because it was third party until it was acquired by Google. But even after being acquired, it seems to be operating independently for all practical purposes. It has a really gorgeous design.
You should treat yourself to the Google clock.
The alarm has gotten really good lately! You have an option to wake up to a Spotify play list. And after you shut off the alarm you have the option to have Assistant trigger an action. In my case, I have the phone play weather and NPR news.
And the app is free!
And it's not the sucky stock LG clock that others have complained about.
To be fair, you might've wanted to get a phone other than the S8. The inability to remap the Bixby button is because Samsung has this weird obsession with using their own shitty software instead of the perfectly working Google ones.
If you really miss iOS and it worked for you then I say switch back. However if you do I suggest trying out a phone with vanilla Android first like the OnePlus 3T (GSM carriers) or Moto G4 (any carriers). Anyway, for calender you can use Google Calendar. As for Google Assistant not working with alarms, you're probably using Samsung's crap clock app (goes back to what I said earlier). Try using the one made by Google from here.
IMO Google's Clock app is pretty simplistic. When the screen is off, you just swipe the icon to the right as if picking up a call, so it should be familiar, at least for the elderly lady I helped to set up her new phone. There is a snooze button if you swipe to the other side, so that may be confusing. Luckily you can set snooze length to be 1 minute (minimum) and when you actually dismiss, it very clearly says "Alarm Dismissed." Also, there is a setting to just use the volume key to dismiss, which should make sense to her too.
Settings > Display > Screensaver > Clock
It's not exactly the same, but it's close.
On the top right of the Screensaver menu, there's a little menu. Expand it and click "When to use" and select "while charging".
Edit: you will need to install the Google Clock app to have this option available: [link]
How about the Google Assistant Routine setting in the official Clock app by Google? You can have the Google assistant do all kinds of crazy things after you dismiss your alarms.
[link] that's the one I use, I did think that at first though.
If you try and change you alarm song, and select the options on the music selection screen I get an "install Spotify" option. I did get a notification first that told me about this and now that's what I'm left with. I'm using an S8+, latest software update for UK.
I can't speak for the Samsung clock, but at least if you use the Google Clock there is an option in the notification to dismiss the alarm (you may have to pull down a little on the notification to see the dismiss option). Works for snoozed alarms and non-snoozed upcoming alarms.
Did you check that your alarms have a sound set? In the clock app, go to your alarms and tap the "V" on the bottom right and make sure there's a sound selected. If the file was changed or removed because of the update it may default to nothing.
Also if that doesn't work you can actually download the Clock app again from the Play Store. Just search "Google Clock" and it will usually show. You can then disable the original in Settings -> Apps -> All.
Try downloading the Clock app by Google on the Google Play Store. Link Here. Go through the settings on the app and make sure sound is set. Set a timer. If it goes off then try to set an alarm in the app. If it works then try to set a regular alarm in your system clock app. Hope this helps.
L'horloge Google permet de faire ça en créant un réveil qui déclenche la routine météo
Uninstall the shitty Samsung clock app and download the clock app made by Google, So much better.
Edit: This app: [link]
Which clock app do you use? My wife had this problem with the ZTE stock app, but the Google Clock app was fine. I use Google Clock and I haven't had any issues (there was one time I slept in, but I'm 90% sure I just turned it off half asleep when it went off and forgot that I did that) [link]
My alarm, set on the phone though, makes the watch ring/vibrate too. However: I am not using the OP clone of the clock, but the Google version.
You could try to install that one, disable the OP version in the phone settings.
Does still not sync settings so you cannot set the (phone) alarms on the watch.
You can change the default alarm app on the S8/S8+ (or any other Android phone that has a manufacturer's clock app pre-installed) as follows. It's a bit convoluted, but once you do, you can use the good old Google Assistant to set your alarms and timers with the Google Clock app instead of the default Samsung Clock app which won't let you change any of its defaults:
1) Download and install the Google Clock App
2) Load up Google Now (not Google Assistant - the older version of Google Now that shows you news, weather, etc cards, along with the old standard Google search bar at the top that has a microphone icon on the right)
3) Launch the Google Now Voice Command with the blue microphone icon at the right of the search bar at the top of the Google Now page
4) Tell the Now assistant to "Set Alarm for 1 Minute From Now"
5) When it starts telling you that it is setting the alarm, you have about 1-2 seconds of time to tap the 3-dots at the top right and select the blue icon for the standard Google Clock app that you installed in step 1 as the default clock app. If you miss it, rinse and repeat until you get it.
That's it, from now on, both Google Now and the newer Google Assistant that you can launch from your home screen with "Ok Google" will set alarms with the Google Clock and not use the pre-installed Samsung (or LG, or Sony, etc) clock.
Not at the moment, no. I installed the Google Clock app & set the screensaver to that & the Shield itself to never sleep.
If I can't turn the screensaver off, at least I can have the time & date bouncing around my screen on a black background when the Shield is on & idle.
Tip from previous post about this issue.
Install google clock : - [link]
Setting a timer with MIUI clock doesn't work as expected, as you have encountered.
Then change the alarm tone. Don't blame the phone for not understanding how to use it.
Also, this is what I meant by "vanilla Android experience". Samsung skins their phones with shitty UIs and apps. So if you'd like to try the clock app that Google provides with vanilla Android, disable the stock one and download this.
I know it might seem obvious, but is this the toggle you are looking for next to 'Default Ringtone'? This is in the stock 'Clock' app.
I just got the official clock from Google. Does it's job and looks good. Also is what's on all Nexus devices so I'm already used to it.
It definitely is app related. This behavior started for me when the latest update to this (stock) app was installed, and alarms extending to Android Wear was listed on the changelog.
If you use Google's Clock app you can pick the alarm tone using another file manager app, such as ES File Explorer. You'll have to turn off your alarms in the stock "Time" app, and re-set them in the new Clock app.
I agree with /u/cherlyy, the counter looks boring and uninspired. Maybe have a look at different clock and expense apps, what they do to make counters more interesting. You could make it look like Google clock with a ring around it showing how far into a day one is or maybe how far from having a new longest streak one is (compared to previous streaks). You could add personal statistics and diagrams on the average length of a streak, most dangerous time of day for 'breaking' and so on, and maybe show additional motivation when the user gets close to his average break time, maybe give an achievement for reaching a new longest streak. If a user is looking at the app for more than 5 minutes (or 2, or whatever, I don't know), he might be trying hard to not fap right now, so maybe show an additional motivational popup or a cat picture after some amount of active time...
Making the app minimal is ok, but minimal doesn't have to mean boring.
Edit: Also the app icon looks very generic and unrelated, together with the name 'NF companion' it took me much longer than it should have to understand what this app is for. Rather use a stop sign or a crossed out hand, maybe.
Are you using the stock Samsung clock app for the alarm? Maybe try Google clock and see if it uses a different method for the alarm?
That's a bummer if you can't get it to work
You looks for "clock" in your galaxy watch app store and it's the first one, the one made by Google. But you must also have that one on your phone and use it. They then get paired as companion app and although it will look empty on your watch, it will ring with the phone alarms.this app
What is your default clock app? Google clock on pixel phones let's you set the gradual increase time. I have mine set to 60 seconds, the longest length possible. It can also play music. Not sure if music volume can be gradually increased or not as I've never used it for that.
Heh, that is pretty awful. /r/softwaregore material even.
But why don't you just grab the official clock app from Google? Judging by the buttons it has exactly the same features, and on top of that it has pretty good UX, and you are almost guaranteed that the UI won't break, and it's free.
I just use a Clock for my screen saver on all my Android TV devices, changes screen location every minute to avoid burn-in when the TV is left on, seems more handy/useful than just having pictures on the screen.
The wasteful data streaming aspect of the picture sources is why I opted to use the clock app as my screensaver, when activated it floats around changing location every 60 seconds to prevent burn in.
You cannot do set alarm tones from Spotify with the default alarm app on OP7T. The other way around is to download Google's alarm app [LINK]. The only problem is that you will have a redundant app in your app drawer.
I use the Clock app via Dreamy for Unsplash for a moving clock screensaver on this & my 2017 Shield Pro. (doesn't require the use of Dreamy)
You probably have a clock app from your phone manufacturer instead of the actual Android clock. If you want multiple timers you can grab the clock here
There are also a million clock and timer apps that will add various features like this
This lets you add Google Assistant routines and can give a briefing. O don't know about ifttt but maybe it can be launched with the routine
Get it in 4 easy steps!
If you're on Android you can add routines to your alarm in the Clock app, which will allow you to turn your light on and play the news, a podcast or a Spotify playlist
That's odd. I have a few alarms set in Google's clock app and one in the One Plus one, never missed either.
The Google clock app is nice because I can use a Spotify playlist as alarm
Stock android clock below. The only reason to use the Samsung one was to integrate with the watch. It would sync the alarms. But since they took that away I just use my watch.
What alarm app do you use? I tried all of those formulas and they all worked. I use the Google Clock app and that works fine.
Somehow. Apparently if you install an alarm clock app from the store it will override this issue, but not all apps worked for me. This is the one that worked though: [link]
It definitely exists. I went to confirm it was the Google clock.
Here's the app (Google clock): [link]
Do a Google search for "google clock assistant routines"
Open the app drawer... scroll and open the one named "Clock"
If you don't have it - you can find it in the Play Store, it's called "Clock" by Google. Here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.deskclock&hl=en_CA
i just thought of a possible reason. a few things i didn't like about the Sony clock app, i had noticed some issues with it so i downloaded and have been using the stock android clock app, the one made by Google (here). I'm thinking maybe just try using that instead, the problem might be the Sony clock.
How about just installing the Google Clock app?
It supports Google Assistant routines and all, and works on Samsung devices also
Maybe install this on your OnePlus, it's the alarm clock that syncs with the default app on the watch, maybe installing it would help the wear os companion app? Your alarm problem hasn't happened on mine so it's probably worth a shot, I don't know much else that will help
Do you have the clock app from the play store or do you use the one baked in to the OS? It's the same app, Play Store only updates it.
Download the Google version of clock
For some reason, the One Plus version doesn't show seconds on a count down in the lock screen.
Install the stock android clock app - it's superior in nearly every way. Multiple timers, no stupid drag rollers, superior layout etc.etc.
A certain /u/anonymous-bot suggested Google Clock, the app.
Obviously it wins at everything, hands down.
Checks all the boxes.
Thanks for them efforts, but Google Clock it is.
Timely seems like a retarded second cousin, to be perfectly frank, compared to this simple and efficient piece of software.
Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for but you could download the Google Clock app and go to Display settings and then Screensaver at the bottom and set it up. It will rotate landscape if your phone is on its side.
Not sure which app you're using, but Google's official clock app has the option to enter a time. It shows a 0 - 9 keypad where you could type "1000" for 10 min and hit start.
Alternatively, like the other person suggested, activating Google Now by saying "Ok Google, set timer for 10 minutes" is the fastest option, imo
Same issue. 'Fixed' it by installing this clock app by Google. Seems to be an older version.
I really hope this gets fixed because I like the look of the new clock way more. Not many people seem to have this issue, though.
If you find a song, move it into the Alarms folder, and you should be able to use that song as an alarm option. Tap the down arrow, and select the bell to choose the song or ringtone used.
This is based on Google's official Clock app.
Have you tried the google Clock app? You can set it as your screensaver when charging (Settings > Display). Not sure if your screen will still "switch on". You will get useful display in the process. This has not caused my device to heat up abnormally even when its on the wireless charger.
Edit: Your device should not be switching on the screen when charging. Something is wrong with the device or the wireless charger.
Not a calendar, but maybe the Google clock app. Highly programmable. It is default on the Nexus phones. Link: [link]
It's Google's clock app widget that has been updated. You just need to look at their page to see all the complaints: [link]
Haven't found a fix for it yet.
You can try Google's clock app (has a timer), not sure about multi-window support though.
A google search for "online timer" or "online timer sound" should put you on the right track for a website that does what you need it to.
I'm a huge fan of Google's Clock app, and although I'm not sure if it syncs alarms across Android Wear, it does support alarm fade in (at least on 5.1, not sure about 6.0).
Android clock is here [link]
You could also do this by turning on daydream in settings and installing an app to give u a clock daydream
Oh, yes - Nova launcher. The clock was a stock one simply named Clock.
See that's the issue with cats - such snobs about some things. ;)
This works for me. You set an alarm on your phone and it sets it on your watch as well. It's made by Google so it syncs with the native alarm on android wear.
I use Google's stock Clock app. Open it and tap on the globe at the bottom and select the timezones you want. Then add a widget on the home screen and resize to make them visible.
I find it bizarre and annoying that the default clock app doesn't display anything in the status bar or as a notification card on the lockscreen.
I dumped it for Google's Clock app instead: [link]
I started to use Nova too and I never went back. And to address your second question, there are a lot of clock apps or clock widgets on the Play Store, try and see which one you like. I suggest using Google's own clock app [link]
It's the one you find one on phones running stock Android. It also has the widget you want.
Google Clock: (my phone had this installed by default, your's might not)
PAC-MAN 256 - Endless Arcade Maze:
Love the spotify integration
I think this just happens if you use Google Clock... did you try another alarm app?
In the preinstalled one you can't do it, but you can download the Google Clock app that haves that feature. The link above
The Google Clock App is virtually identical and fits properly
The Google clock app let's you do that last I checked. And has alarms, believe it or not. 😁
De klok app van Google is dit volgensmij. [link]
Both your phone's (and if you hate your phone) and Google's stock app do this
The stock clock app lets you turn off individual alarms.
Use Google's cock
It's a Pixel which uses Clock from the Play Store
In Google clock, you can set the alarm with music from Spotify, Pandora, YT music, or local.
Is there something wrong with Google's Clock?
Exactly what I wanted to say and also it would be nice to have some visual indication of time like in a the google clock app [link]
Try using Google's clock and see if that helps. Test it out before relying on it!
Google Clock, this one: [link]
Switch to the Clock app from Google. It allows you to dismiss the upcoming alarms from the notifications.
Here you go! Click
Ik gebruik gewoon altijd de standaard android klok app: [link]
I use the basic Google Clock app with Alarmist and its companion app. The only thing that annoys me is notifications of upcoming alarms. Everything else works a treat.
Install clock by google and you'll get it
Wow this is ridiculous. It should wake up the device by default. It's a Samsung issue.
Read a bit here: https://dontkillmyapp.com/
Maybe try the Google Clock app? if Samsung has its own app.
You need to use the Google clock app for this feature.
i meant this app: [link]
The Clock app made by Google
Google's own Clock.
Do you use this one: [link]
From the Smart Launcher FAQs:
This is a known bug. Unfortunately, we cannot fix it, because it is caused by another app (MIUI clock app) which communicate erroneous info to Smart Launcher.
The good news is you can easily fix solve the problem by installing and using a different Alarm clock app like Google Clock https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.deskclock
Xiaomi / Redmi / Poco - Smart Launcher
I use the Clock app as my lone screen saver.
I use the clock app for my screensaver, what more functionality does anyone need?
Try this app by google. Works pretty good
I use the clock as my screensaver.
Rise and shine. I actually found a way to get rid of the indicator and launch the clock with tasker.
1. Download the Google clock app
2. Disable all the alarms as this is going to be a dummy placeholder app.
3. Use the following tasker configuration (download profile)
At this point click on the big clock widget will open the OnePlus clock app directly without opening the Google clock app. I at this point hid the Google clock app made sure it didn't have any alarms and set it to battery optimized.
I'm a super heavy sleeper what I do is have 30 minutes up to an hour of alarms with 2 to 3 minutes between them and with this deafening alarm sound I downloaded of YouTube. I use the Google Clock app but it seems like Simple Clock is a good alternative
The Google clock app. [link]
Sorry, but doesn't Clock from Google do that?
[link] has it built in with the assistant option.
Top tip: don't use the OEM OnePlus clock to set alarms. Use the Google clock app
This is the clock app pixel uses
I use the google clock. It has volume buttons to dismiss/snooze. [link]
Hello, you can use the stock Clock from Google : [link]
You don't have to use a spinner to set the time.
Like is this going to have a separate icon from the generic clock icon, or are they just going to be the same?
The widget in Google's Clock app does exactly what you're needing: [link]
Alarm from this app [link]
I have this as my screensaver & it works fine, audio included.
You're using Samsung Clock. The Spotify feature is in Google Clock:
Perso j'ai du télécharger l'appli sur le Store, c'est celle-ci qu'il te faut :)
The Google Clock is awesome because it integrates with Spotify.
You could download the stock Google Clock app: [link]
This seems like how the stock clock app works on Nougat. Have you tried Google's own Clock app?
I don't have Oreo yet, so I can't test anything myself, but I appreciate your updates on this. So I guess the Clock app behaves differently when running in 8.0 than under earlier Android releases? Which specific version is installed on your Oreo handset? On my LG running 7.0, it's 5.1 (4224536).
I'm not an Android developer, but browsing the code for Deskclock (which I think is the base for Clock?), it looks like it still generates a (low-priority) notification per alarm instance. Is there any chance there's some default setting burying these notifications as too low priority to display?
If the Clock app can't be made to work, I'll probably take a crack at rebuilding the Alarmist companion app to point to another app (preferably F/OSS - there are a bunch out there, e.g. Alarm Klock and Simple Alarm Clock).
Comfort varies person to person. The HRM "bump" has never bothered me, but it drove my wife nuts, until I got her a much more adjustable band (a magnetic milanese loop band); it doesn't bother her anymore. That said, I agree with above comments that the PPG HRM is merely an amusing gimmick with little utility. It's fun to look at the day's graph, but even that is a dead end (unlike step and sleep data, it doesn't even export HR readings to Google Fit ~~or Apple HealthKit~~).
Also, I use the combination of Google's Android Clock and Alarmist (with its companion app) to sync alarms from my phone to my watch. Not a lot of features, but I never oversleep anymore, and I can check on my next upcoming alarm without fumbling for my phone.
Google Clock: [link]
No. If it allows you to disable it, then disable it and install this
If you're not using Google's version of the app, I'd start by installing it.
I'm pretty sure Google's Clock app can do that.
Edit: You mean the time in seconds, not minutes:seconds. Hold up.
I assumed it was just this: [link]. Maybe a slightly different coloring scheme?
Google Clock does this.
Mine is nothing special. I am using Nova Launcher and the Google clock widget.
It should come pre-installed, but try installing the Google clock app..
That is not the Android clock app.
This is: [link]
That looks like a Samsung app, and it looks like a custom UI.
I've used the Google Clock app as my clock widget
That's what I was looking for and don't seem to have: [link] / [link]
Which is why I got to wondering if I've somehow got a different version of the Clock app? I definitely remember CM having an option per alarm in the past.
Also, when I look at this [link] they definitely have increasing volume, so now I'm really not sure what version I'm actually running.
Download Google Clock from here
It's the same app, but it should work.
I'm not sure about the CM clock app, but Google just released the AOSP clock app on the play store: [link]
Whoever downvoted me, here's proof. It's the Google clock app, not the manufacturer app you're probably using.
App store link:
Just use the Google Clock app instead of the one from Samsung: [link]
You want the Google Clock app [link]
What phone do you have? Mine already works this way. I fall asleep using headphones to listen to a podcast and my alarm plays from my speakers. Maybe try the stock clock app for your alarm?
My phone used to have a different alarm problem. There wont be any notification when the alarm rings. I had to go to the Clock app and then had to turn off the alarm every time. I went in to notification settings and saw, a notification channel was deleted. I could not able to restore that in any way. (May be factory reset might have worked, But I didn't try).
Instead and went to Play store and downloaded Google's stock Clock app and it working pretty well for me. May be this might fix your problem too.
Google Clock app Link : Download here
Oh I think you need to install the Google Clock app. That should add the Clock to Daydream/Screensaver as an option.
