Setting an alarm on your Android phone can be a useful feature to help you wake up on time or remind you of important tasks throughout the day. With the built-in clock app, setting an alarm is quick and easy. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to set an alarm on your Android phone.

Step 1: Open the Clock App

To begin, locate and open the Clock app on your Android phone. The Clock app is typically pre-installed on most Android devices and can be found in your app drawer or on your home screen.

Step 2: Navigate to the Alarm Tab

Once you have opened the Clock app, navigate to the “Alarm” tab. This tab is usually located at the bottom of the screen and is represented by an alarm clock icon. Tap on the “Alarm” tab to proceed.

Step 3: Add a New Alarm

To add a new alarm, look for a “+” or “Add” button within the Alarm tab. This button is usually located at the bottom right corner of the screen. Tap on it to create a new alarm.

Step 4: Set the Time

After tapping on the “+” or “Add” button, you will be presented with options to set the time for your alarm. Use either a scroll wheel or numeric keypad to adjust hours and minutes until you reach your desired time.


  • To increase or decrease time faster: Long press or swipe up/down on either hours or minutes section.
  • To switch between AM and PM: Tap on either AM/PM option until it displays your desired choice.

Step 5: Choose Alarm Settings

Once you have set the time, you can customize additional alarm settings according to your preferences. These settings may vary depending on your Android device, but commonly include:

  • Alarm tone: Select a sound or music file to be played when the alarm goes off.
  • Vibration: Enable or disable vibration for the alarm.
  • Snooze: Toggle snooze functionality on or off.

Step 6: Save and Enable the Alarm

After configuring all the desired settings, tap on the “Save” or “Done” button to save your alarm. By default, the alarm will be enabled and will be indicated by a switch or checkbox. If you wish to disable the alarm temporarily, simply tap on the switch or checkbox to turn it off.


  • To edit an existing alarm: Tap on the specific alarm from the list in the Alarm tab and make necessary changes.
  • To delete an existing alarm: Swipe left or right on the specific alarm in the Alarm tab and tap on “Delete” when prompted.

Congratulations! You have successfully set an alarm on your Android phone. Now you can rest assured that you will never miss an important event or oversleep again!
