Google Clock has received an update on Android with the addition of minor yet useful features. The update released on Tuesday pushes the app to version 4.2. The first update was rolled out in July this year, weeks after the app was launched on Google Play for non-stock Android users.
The Google Clock app v4.2 now adds the progressive alarms and timers feature in which the alarm and timer volume would gradually increase. Users can now choose their favourite timer ringtone and preemptively dismiss alarms from inside the app. The app will now also let users control the timer from the handset’s notification panel. Users will even get the option to pause or add 1 extra minute and to reset the timer.
As for Android Wear users, the alarm and timer management would now be easier than before with interactive alarm notifications. The updated Google Clock app is available to download from Google Play.
Google in June this year brought its Material Design-based Clock app to the Google Play store for non-stock Android users. The app previously was available only on devices running stock Android, like Nexus devices. The firm updated the app in July, bringing more neutral colours to it and fixing couple of issues.
The Sundar Pichai-led company, besides updating its Google Clock, also rolled out an update for its Gmail service on Tuesday. As a part of the latest Gmail update, people using Gmail on the Web will now be able to block specific email addresses with just a couple of clicks. Google has also made it easier for users of its Android app to unsubscribe from newsletter and other mass emails.
