Android O's native Clock app now available for download in the Google Play Store

Android O's native Clock app now available for download in the Google Play Store
Android O is just around the corner, but we already know quite a lot about the some of the new features it will bring. Last month, Google revealed a new native Clock app that will be coming along with Android O.

The new Clock app is available to everyone who flashed any of the Android O Developer Previews Google released in the last few months, so some of you probably know what the new app looks like.

Well, the good news is Google Clock for Android O is now available for download in the Google Play Store. Unfortunately, it will not work on devices that aren't running Android O Developer Preview, but if you can find the APK, you can install it manually on just about any Android device.

Aside from being specifically optimized to work on Android O, the native Clock app also gained a new dark theme to reduce the strain on your eyes when you set your next alarm.

The app maintains all the previous functionality but got some visual changes. The first things you'll notice are the more vivid blue color (cornflower blue), the font's increased weight, as well as the new adaptive icons and flat design.

Although Google's have radically changed the Clock app, the small tweaks and improvements make it much better than the previous one (current one for many).

The Android O developer preview is quite good already, not experiencing any major bugs.

"Unfortunately, it will not work on devices that aren't running Android O Developer Preview", just to clarify this is not right as I have this update on my pixel running 7.1.2. But It cant be downloaded on other android devices that dont come with the app preinstalled (all non google androids)

I got it installed on my lg g3 running marshmallow via the playstore. So what PA is claiming is ridiculous.

Meh, it's just an ordinary clock, nothing to get excited about. You PhoneArena guys must be hurting real bad for material to write about.

I (literally) woke up to this new clock on my G5 this morning, I hate it. Give me back the blue theme please.

Every week. "XYZ's app is Available on the Play Store" ... but it's only available if you have this device or that software... smh
