Setting a “Briefing” Alarm in Android

Fancy something different to awake to other than a melody or vibration? If you select the Clock app and select Alarm Type, you choose Briefing.

This wakes you up to the Weather, News Headlines and Calendar entries (Today’s Schedule) for the day. And you can further control the content in each. Tempted?

  1. Hi,

    How can I get briefing on my Notes 3. The Briefing does not appear as an option.

    Thank you

    Dan, I don’t think it is installed as standard. This XDA developers forum is talking about installing Briefing as an Alarm.
