Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Most people don't like to wake up to the grating whine of a regular alarm clock, and a lot of the "alarm" sounds on phones are scarcely better. Now, the Google Clock app offers an alternative.

You can connect the Clock app to a free or premium Spotify account, and then search for songs, playlists, or access your recently played tracks.

Hey Google: Alarms and timers should work seamlessly across all my devices

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Alarms and timers are probably two of the things I use the Google Assistant for most often. Voice commands making setting them dead simple (especially important for the kitchen, when my hands are often covered in food), and I can use them on my phone, my Pixelbook, or one of my Google Homes.

The problem is that, for all the endpoint ubiquity of setting and managing these timers via the Assistant, I can't actually control or set timers for one device from another.

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Google began rolling out a more-beta-than-usual update to its search app a couple days ago.

Google rolls out fix for setting alarms and reminders on Google Home speakers

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

Asking your Google Home smart speaker to set an alarm or reminder is a rudimentary use case for those devices. But it seems some users recently found that their Google Home failed to sound alarms and reminders that were set. Now Google is saying that a fix has been rolled out and those functions are working again.

A few users in the Google Home Help Forum brought up the issue, saying they used their voice to set alarms or reminders on their Google Home and received an audible confirmation.

Android P feature spotlight: Do not disturb settings have been simplified down to a single mode

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Android's "Do not disturb" setting has an incredible degree of flexibility, but as of the recent Developer Preview, it looks like it may be simplified a bit going forward. In our hands-on time today with Android P, we have discovered that the Do not disturb setting, and its various modes, has been reduced to a single toggle accessible only via quick settings. Gone are the old "Total silence," "Alarms only," and "Priority only" modes. 

In Android 8.1 (and earlier supported versions), Do not disturb was accessible not only via quick settings but as a pseudo-mute option when you toggled volume down far enough.

Google Home can now set alarms with music instead of that obnoxious beeping

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

The default alarm tone for the Google Home may leave a tiny bit to be desired, but thankfully Google has just introduced an alternative: you can now set your next alarm to play music instead. So the next time you need to set an alarm for an impromptu nap or that bird in the oven, you can be jerked back to awareness with something a bit more entertaining.

The new feature was documented by Google on a support page for the Google Home, and it works easily.

Here are the Pixel 2’s all-new alarm, ringtone, and notification sounds

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

The last time Google made new alarm, notification, and ringtone sounds for Android was for the original Pixel and Pixel XL. Maybe this will become a yearly tradition, because Google has done the same thing for this year's Pixels. We've also extracted them from a Pixel 2 XL, so you can use them on your own device.

  

All of the previous sounds have been replaced, so if you still want the old ones, you'll have to download them from the above link.
