From what I've learned/experienced, (I've performed a multitude of tests using different settings) the only way to have the alarm play a sound is to have your phone in "sound" my mode. I guess our only work around is to use the "do not disturb" feature 🙄
@AndrewL This does not work; I performed a multitude of tests and the only way for a sound to play with the alarm is to have the phone on sound mode. For those of us who live life on vibrate this is a major shortcoming
Hey. I was struggling with the same issue on my S21. I got it to work.
Go to 'Clock', click on the 3 dots and click 'Settings'. Look for the heading that says 'Vibrate for alarms and timers' and turn that option off.
This works when my phone is on Vibrate mode and Silent mode. It doesn't have to be on Do Not Disturb mode for this to work. And it also vibrates (because I set all my alarms to vibrate with sound).
Let me know if this works for you!
