Amazing Android trick is perfect for anyone who wakes up to an alarm

EVER feel like an alarm isn’t enough and you need someone to yell at you so you wake up in the morning?

Well, how about the sound of your own voice?


The feature works on the Google Pixel

A clever Android trick allows you to replace the usual alarm sounds with a recording of your voice.

So maybe you could shout about an important meeting to shock yourself into waking up.

Or a flight you just cannot miss.

Perhaps you’d like to hear the voice of a loved one.

Either way, Android fans have discovered it on Pixel.

To do it, you’ll need to have the latest version of the Clock app and Recorder app installed.

You can check in the Google Play Store.

Now, go and set an alarm as normal in the Clock app.

Tap the down arrow next to your alarm for a full set of options.

Choose the alarm sound – this will say Default (Bright Morning) if you’ve never changed the tune before.

You should see Recorded Sounds.

Underneath it, tap Record New.

It’ll then take you to the Recorder app where you can record a short audio of your choosing.

Pause it then hit Save once you’re done.

You can add a title if you wish.

Now, back in the Clock app, you should see it listed.

I’m a gym girl - people  banned their husbands after seeing my outfits
I totally misunderstood the beautician's orders for a spray tan - I’m mortified

Select your recording and it will play out when the alarm goes off.
