Google Clock has received a much-needed update that should fix the alarm clock issues. The problem occurred for alarm clocks playing a song from Spotify. Those alarms have to sound again, otherwise there is an emergency solution.

Spotify alarm clocks

Google Clock is the default alarm clock on Pixel phone, but also on phones from other brands, including OPPO. In recent days there has been a serious error with Klok that led to people not being woken up and arriving late for work. The problem also seemed to be widespread, even if not every user was affected by it. It’s a lot of trouble for a seemingly relatively simple app.

Google now has an update ready for Clock, version 6.4.4, which should fix the problem. As some users had already discovered, alarm clocks didn’t go off when they played a music from Spotify as an alarm clock sound.

Google has now fixed the error, and if something goes wrong with the Spotify music, Clock will now let the standard sound of your phone go off.
