It’s almost inevitable that despite the many tests, controls and developer preview, every major release of Android brings some bugs that only occurs in certain situations. It seems to be the case for a problem affecting some Nexus and Pixel smartphone owners who have been upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo.
The problem concerns users who use Google Clock to wake up in the morning or to schedule appointments. It seems that the alarm does not work, creating a few scams for many users, who have also pointed out it on Google Play.
In particular, it seems that setting an alarm clock that activates within one hour there is no problem, while the alarms set, for example, for the next day, disappear as if they had never been set. In other cases, the application crashes when it activates the alarm, resulting in no play.
The Google Clock problem with Android 8.0 Oreo seems fortunate to some users, who, expecting a solution from Big G, will need to resort to third-party applications such as Snap Me Up or The Rock Clock.
