And it is not necessary to have a watch with an infinite number of options and tools, many times it rewards functionality and a beautiful presentation. This app has both, it offers a very direct utility, without detours but with an interface Material Design and some added element.
Brief review of the Google Clock app
As we say, simplicity is the flag that the entire conglomerate of applications from Google usually carry. We found a uncluttered interface, divided into four sections and with some very rarely visited options such as settings or sending comments due to functionality problems reserved in the icon with three vertical dots.
On the other hand, those four sections are destined for the alarm, the analog or digital clock -parameter that you can configure-, a timer and a stopwatch. Functions that do not surprise at all, since it is not something that the competition does not have, simply highlighting the possibility of check the time anywhere in the world with that access at the bottom of the screen.
Alarms with music from other platforms
The best is yet to come, and that is that in the Google Clock app, you can set different melodies from other platforms. First of all, one of them is called ‘Calm Sleep’, in which you can download very relaxing songs that allow a sunrise without frights.
On the other hand, there are other platforms to choose from such as Spotify or YouTube Music so you can choose your favorite music. Of course, we say music instead of song, since It is not even possible to select the specific song of an album or determining the part where the alarm should sound in the morning. To choose the type of alarm, just select the bell icon.
Google Clock integration with Google Assistant
Unfortunately, Google assistant It doesn’t help to fix this little lack of customization, but it does offer other very interesting features. There are few watch apps on Android that have full integration with an assistant, especially when it comes to Google. To enjoy this tool, you must go back to «Alarms», and select the line where it says “Google Assistant Routines”.
After opening a context menu, all the tasks that you can accomplish with the virtual assistant will be displayed. Among them, it is possible to adjust the multimedia volume or device lights with compatibility for Google Assistant, as well as listening to news, events of the day, checking the weather or deactivating the silent mode. All these tasks will be fulfilled depending on the frequency of said alarm, since if it is not activated, the assistant routines will not be shown.
