Windows 10 Store apps are seeing a lot of updates today. After the latest update for Candy Crush Soda Saga, Microsoft released a new update for its own Alarms & Clock app for Windows 10. The new update for Alarms & Clock brings some new features, as well as some bug fixes and improvements.

New update for Alarms & Clock Windows 10 app

The update is available for both Mobile and PC versions of Windows 10, but some features are different. For example, the option to set your alarm to vibrate is available for Windows 10 Mobile users only.

The update also brings the ability to set a custom alert as your main alarm, so you can use your favorite song to wake you up, and fixes some bugs. Here’s the full changelog of the latest update for Alarms & Clock app for Windows 10:

  • Set your alarm to vibrate (phone only)
  • Set your favorite music as a custom alarm sound using .m4a files on your phone
  • Remaining time to alarm takes Daylight Saving Time into account
  • Bug fixes to improve reliability and accessibility

If you didn’t receive the update automatically, just go to the Windows Store on your Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile device, and download the update. Alarms & Clock is installed on your Windows 10 device by default, so you don’t have to download the full app once again.

Although Alarms & Clock is a default Windows 10 app it has poor customer rating of just 2.4, as a lot of users report that the app doesn’t work properly on their devices. Hopefully, this update will improve the reliability of the app, so users will become more satisfied with it.

Are you using Windows 10’s own Alarms & Clock app as your daily alarm, or you prefer some third-party alarm app more? Tell us in the comments.
