6. Silent alarm
Available only in Alarm-specific settings. Won’t turn off vibrations.
- Gentle volume increase is enabled or set for too long period
Try shorter period in Settings → Alarms → Gentle volume increase, the shortest period is 1 minutes - the volume goes from zero to full volume during one minute.
- Your ringtone volume might be too too low
Make sure the alarm sound stream is high enough - press the volume button on your phone, and expand the dialogue that shows on the side of the screen. The sound screen will show you the level of each sound stream on your phone.
- Loading of the selected file may have failed
Make sure that you have selected the correct ringtone - check Alarm default settings in Settings → Alarms → Sound, or settings of each alarm.
Check if the file has not been moved or deleted and that SD card is available at the time of the alarm.
Check that the app has storage permission to access that file.
- Online service (Spotify, Google Music, online radio) may not have responded
When the service is not responding for too long, the app uses a build-in ringtone.
When alarm starts and your phone is locked we are unable to change the playlist or album in your Spotify app. In this case the app will play simply where you last left it.
- Battery optimization was enabled
When battery optimization is enabled, vibrations do not work, so the app is loading the built-in ringtone to ensure your wake up.
Check Settings → Sleep tracking → Battery optimized.
Do not enable Save battery option from the Tracking screen → Stop and save pull up menu → Save battery.
- Phone was rebooted
When the phone screen is locked after a reboot, the app cannot load any files.
The phone rings with the build-in ringtone and vibrates.
