Bixby briefing on alarm no longer available?

Since the latest update and having connected with Samsung support remotely I realized that on Bixby alarm the briefing is no longer available. Why did Samsung remove this option? Has someone a clue what happened or is it only on my device? Samsung support was trying to find the Briefing tab for half an hour. I wonder are they not aware that there have been some changes in the last update?

By setting the alarm with bixby the only option I have is to check the plain Bixby alarm and the readout is only for time and have a nice day no weather forecast etc.

The bixby briefing alarm has not been removed it is still available today I do not know why your device does not have this feature but you might need to connect your bixby to the Internet or to other services

It's still there. Tap on your pre-set alarm, or create a new one. Then tap on Alarm Sound and you'll see the Bixby alarm option. Tap on it to enable it, then save.

I have an S20 ultra with latest updates bixby and device is always connected the alarm announcement is only "for the time and have a good day" that's all.

Indeed when I create a new alarm the option Bixby alarm "Read out the current time and weather forecast over music as the alarm rings" is there, but when the alarm goes on it reads only the time and says" have a good day" no weather briefing etc

That is odd. My alarm went off this morning with Bixby telling me everything including news updates from different sources.
Stupid question but you have set Bixby up by allowing all permissions haven't you?

Try clearing cache and data for the Clock app in the phone settings, and then try again with a new alarm in the morning.
If that fails, maybe a full factory reset?
