Google clock app no sound on completion of timer

The timer in the Google clock app on my new S21 only makes a sound if the screen is unlocked. This makes it pretty useless.  I use the timer a lot and I've never had this problem with previous Android devices. 

(The alarm in the same app, which I use every morning, works perfectly)

Any ideas?

That sequence of options doesn't seem to be available on my S21 running Android 12. However, I have tried..

Settings
Apps
Clock
App info
Battery
Change from optimized to unrestricted

which I assume does the same thing. Didn't work.

Apologies. This isn't a Samsung problem.  I've just been reading reviews of the Google Clock app in the Play Store. Apparently this is a bug in the latest version of the app in Android 12.  It's all Google's fault.
