For about a week now my daily alarms I have had set for years suddenly stopped giving the news brief by Google. I went into clock settings and when I select Bixby for the alarm there are no further options, I don't see Google assistant in the clock enter Alam settings. Anyone know if it's possible to get news and time/alarm name spoken when the alarm goes off again?

I made new alarms and flipped the setting switches for Bixby news off and on, and mine work now

This is where i found the toggle for bixby alarms in the clock app.
Clock settings < Alarm < Include news in Bixby alarm.
It should be above the upcoming alarm notification setting

It's under the clock app settings, not the individual alarm settings where it used to be.

I wish they would make it cleaner when they move settings around like this. I was starting to question my own sanity - was it ever really there or did I dream it?1708617467990.jpg

There used to be a toggle in the Bixby alarm settings to allow you to choose whether or not you want it to read the news headlines. I can't find this toggle anymore. Maybe the feature has been removed.

Same with mine, can't find the toggle but I also don't find anything about it searching around online, is it such an unused feature that out of millions I'm the only loser who misses it? Lol

Odd.  I never encoutered any issue with Bixby Alarm.  I use about 4 alarms a day during the week.
