Google has released an update to its Android Clock app on Pixel devices, making it easier than ever to record custom alarm and timer sounds. The latest version of the app allows users to record their alarm sounds directly within the Clock app, eliminating the need for a file management app to transfer and upload custom audio files.
Developers from XDA report that Google is making adding custom audio as your alarm sound more straightforward using the most recent version of the Clock app. Before this update, users had to transfer custom audio recordings using a file management app and then upload them to the alarm’s setting for the sound. The new feature allows users to record sound directly within the Clock app.
This new feature is based on the exclusive Pixel Recorder app and is currently only available on Pixel devices. However, if you’re running a modified ROM on your Android device that includes the Record app, you’ll also be able to take advantage of this new feature.
The update is ideal for those who want to wake up to the peaceful sounds of whales or something more chaotic. You can record your spouse demanding you get up, your parents urging you to be ready for school, or even your favorite pet making noise. The possibilities are endless.
You could record your voice, song, or any sound you would like to wake up to. This update from Google is not only limited to alarm sounds; you can also record custom timer sounds for daily reminders. It could be a recording of your child’s voice or a natural sound. It will help you to be reminded of an upcoming meeting or an event with a sound that is familiar and important to you.
The Google Clock app now lets you record your own audio to use as an alarm. This is rolling out to users on the existing 7.3 release via a server-side update.
