It’s most likely not recommended to make use of beta versions of os’s for the “daily driver” phone… or noisy alarms, for instance. Once the original Android M Developer Preview arrived in May, we spotted a brand new form of the time application that permitted users to by hand pick a day to begin with. Ends up it’d another “feature:” quite a few users reported that sliding towards the “snooze” function around the alarm will make the application delay the chime for twenty-four hrs rather of ten minutes (automatically). I picture this caused some awkward conversations with bosses.

“See, sir, I downloaded this mostly untested build of Android to my phone last night, and that’s why I’m coming into work at 11:30.”

That issue appears to possess been removed in the 2nd form of the Developer Preview. (Actually, it might have been removed up through the version published towards the Play Store – Clock APK 4..1 1995834, versus 4..1 1906568 in the original M preview, but we can not make sure. There wasn’t an enormous wave of missed appointments following the Play Store upload, in almost any situation.) Now whenever you press the snooze button for ten more precious moments of blissful sleep, you will not be delaying your wake-up call by a whole day.

Most likely. Maybe. Hopefully. We can not test every contingency here, therefore it is feasible that the bug may rear its nasty mind again. The lesson is you should not believe in scheduling to some beta build… or you do, make certain to create another alarm simultaneously, preferably on a single of individuals huge old-fashioned travel alarm clocks using the twin bells.
