Are you one of the many people who count on their smartphone apps to remind them about their scheduled tasks? If yes, then you might have used Google clock or similar apps one time or the other. Google clock is the conventional choice as it’s available on any standard Android device. But, as per reports, many of you have lately experienced slight technical glitches with the Clock app. These glitches have pointed to a bug that caused you to miss your pre-set alarms.
The bug caused users to miss appointments and meetings, and this wasn’t taken lightly by them. Yesterday saw a flurry of 1-star reviews for the app on the Play Store. As many of you rely heavily on alarms for most of your day, the glitch caused severe backlash from users who didn’t receive their reminders. As reported by the Android Authority, one review on the Play Store claims that the app just vibrated once, and as a result, “I lost my teaching job because I missed two morning class schedules.”
Many 1-star reviewers claimed that they could not restore the normal functionalities even after several tries. The usual troubleshooting methods, such as uninstalling and reinstalling the app, clearing its cache, and changing settings, did not solve the issue for many. You need not worry as Google has taken up the problem and will soon roll out solutions for the same. “We’ve shared this with our product and engineering teams and will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available,” the company wrote on its issue tracker website.
