Set & manage alarms

You can ask the Google Assistant to set and manage alarms on Android phones, speakers, Smart Displays, and Smart Clocks.

Important: If you’re using a speaker, Smart Display, or Smart Clock and use Downtime, your alarms might be restricted or blocked. Learn how Downtime works.

On a phone or tablet

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, touch and hold the Home button or say "Ok Google."
  2. Say or type the alarm you want. For example:
    • "Set alarm for 6 AM tomorrow."
    • "Wake me up at 7 AM tomorrow."
    • "Set an alarm at 7 PM called ‘Chores’."

On a speaker, Smart Display, or Smart Clock

Set an alarm

You can choose traditional sounds, media, or character voices to be your alarm.

Important: For now, you must use the Google Assistant in English in the US to set media alarms. You must use English in the US or Canada to set character voice alarms.

To set an alarm, say what kind of alarm you want. For example:

  • "Set alarm for 6am tomorrow."
  • "Set a Rolling Stones alarm for 8am."
  • "Set a Lego Friends alarm for 6am tomorrow."
  • "Wake me up at 7am tomorrow."
  • "Set an alarm for 8am every day of the week."

When you set a media alarm, the alarm will ring while your media plays in the background. 

Stop an alarm

You can pause the alarm or turn it off completely.

Snooze an alarm

Say a command. For example:

  • "Ok Google, snooze."
  • "Ok Google, snooze for 5 minutes."

On Smart Displays, you can also tap Snooze. On Smart Clocks, you can also tap firmly on the device, or tap Snooze.

Turn off an alarm

Say a command. For example:

  • "Ok Google, stop."
  • "Ok Google, turn it off."

Tip: On some speakers and Smart Displays in English, you can just say “Stop.” This feature runs completely on-device and is activated by the word “Stop” when a traditional alarm or timer is going off.

  • "What alarms are set?"
