Google Search update backfires for some users, removes hands-free capability on alarms and timers

However, following the update, after speaking your request, the process requires the user to tap a "Set Alarm" button. And to make matters more confusing, not every Android phone has lost its hands-free capabilities. Apparently, the Motorola Moto X is one of the models that has been negatively affected by these shenanigans.
Using your smartphone as a timer or alarm clock has become second nature to most. If you create your alarm verbally, you should make sure that your alarm has truly been set. It only takes a few extra seconds to double check. And we don't have to remind you what could happen if you come to work late.

I find it funny that you are so quick to bash Google when the only positive news about Apple (Your platform of choice) is the record number of fools dumb enough to buy a phone that's plagued with so many issues. Bouble standards? I think so.
