Some users are reporting that an update to the Google Search app on Android is bringing an unexpected alarm and timer related bug. Previously, users could set an alarm by using just the voice commands with a physical button available for those who prefer it. But after this update, some users are reportedly not able to set the alarm merely by voice and will have to manually press the button on the screen to confirm it.
This is a minor inconvenience, but something which is worth Google’s attention. It’s not known as to what’s causing the issue, but expect a quick bug fixing update from Google to put it to rest. If you’re a user of Google Now, make sure you keep a check on this to see if the issue exists on your device too. If it does, do not hesitate to let us know in the comments section below. Bear in mind, this issue is not widespread and might not be seen on all devices.
