same issue, I had to download a new alarm app to wake up :facepalm :


my 2 brothers and mother had the same issue too...


Pixel 3a 

Had this same issue, caused me to be very late to work twice this week thinking I'd just slept through my alarms. Pretty bad when a basic feature as an alarm stops working! Tested it, vibrates twice and then says alarm missed. Please fix this quick !!


On new version the issue continue.


Spotify stopped working with my Google alarm as well. I have a Pixel 3a running Android 11. My Spotify version is Good thing I had a back up alarm or would have been late to work haha. 


Hey @jskinvest, in the Spotify Star Program, we're able to pass along bug reports and that type of thing to community mods who do work for Spotify and are able to check with others within the company. Rest assured, I've confirmed this information before I posted about the expected fix. Be sure to check out this page if you'd like to know more about the program.


Thank you for that information. Do you know when the fix will be arriving?
