Due to an error that caused the user to miss the preset alarm, the Google Clock application has been publishing news recently. Many Pixel smartphone users and users of devices made by OnePlus, Oppo, and other companies have received reports of the problem. The problem even caused multiple one-star reviews on the Play Store.
Although Google has identified a fix for this bug, we want to know if this is the first time you have encountered such a thing, or whether the clock application often misses alarms. This is how you vote in our polls.

Ele: I only encountered this problem with Spotify-driven alarm clocks. Once I changed it to the standard alarm tone, I had no problem.
Wolves: There are usually specific songs from Spotify as the alarm clock of this application. I noticed a few mornings that it claimed that I missed the alarm clock. Change it to the old alarm clock I saved in the local file of the phone, and the problem is solved.
Rob Chilton: I noticed that my ringtone alarm clock is working, but there is no Spotify alarm clock. When I try to change to the ringtone, the app will softly crash back to my alert list.
Tim Felt: I don’t have any problems. My alarm clock is an alarm clock from the sound selector. Anyway, I usually wake up before the alarm goes off.
Dragos Lucian: This is an absolutely unacceptable type of error. The silence of the alarm is the end of the world for some people.
Second glance: I never believe in smart phone alarm clocks. As far as I can remember, I have been using an atomic alarm clock powered by dual AA batteries.
Lex1020: I keep telling my wife that I swear that one of my alarm clocks did not go off. Fortunately, I have been waking up at the same time for many years, so my body started to wake up normally at that time, and I have never been late for work.
Tony Villiley: I started encountering this problem a few days ago. I found that if the alarm is configured to play Spotify songs and the phone is facing down in the “flip to hush” mode, the alarm will not be triggered. Even if time has passed, it will still show that it is ready to set off today (not tomorrow).
Benjamin Hauber: I can confirm this error on my Pixel 5. I have missed several alerts in the past few weeks. Fortunately, my internal clock is set perfectly, anyway I usually wake up 10 minutes before the alarm goes off.
Pascal: I have encountered this problem before, it is because my phone does not have an available internet connection, and I use Youtube music.
