There are many who don’t take full advantage of the Clock app built into their Android devices. Aside from telling you the current time, it can also serve as a kitchen timer, an alarm clock, and even a stopwatch for timing purposes. Aside from these basic functionalities, users are also able to create multiple alarms and timers, record lap times, and also adjust the snooze times.
Using the Clock App on Your Android Device
In order to access the Clock app on your Android smartphone or tablet, just tap on the Clock icon found on your Home Screen. It will immediately direct you to the app. You can also open the App Drawer then open the Clock app from there.
To use its alarm function, first of all tap the alarm icon which is located at the top of the app window’s screen. In order to add a new alarm, tap the plus icon situated at the bottom of the screen. You can then set the time as to when the alarm will ring. You can also set the alarm if it will repeat on specific days. Once that has been done, you can then tap on the plus icon multiple times to add more alarms into the list. This is great for busy people who want to be notified of several meetings or would want to deal with their To-Do list while sticking to their allotted schedules. You can also put a label on each alarm to let it remind you on what the alarm is about in the first place.
To use the timer function for the Clock app on your Android device, tap on the appropriate icon found on the top of the app window’s screen. Its basic functionality is for users to use it as an egg timer. You can set how many seconds, minutes, and/or hours as to how long the timer will last. You can also set up multiple timers to it, which immediately makes it more useful than your traditional egg timer for your kitchen.
Lastly, the Clock app for Android has its very own stopwatch functionality. With it, you can use it to time activities. This feature does not need any setting up prior to each use as all you need to do is tap on the Start button to start it. By default, the stopwatch will allow users to record lap times, wherein it is basically stopping the stopwatch at specific times. However, you can also record each lap time, which is great for people who are into racing to check on their progresses.
