Pixies apologize for sabotaging your Google Assistant alarm

For the previous few years, you’ve been in a position to say “Cease” to inform Google Assistant to finish an alarm early with out the necessity to preface your command with “Hey Google.” It’s a useful characteristic Google first debuted on earlier than later rolling it out to Pixel smartphones. And for probably the most half, it really works like a attraction, although one individual not too long ago found a enjoyable quirk of the characteristic that entails the Pixies traditional “The place Is My Thoughts?”

In a Reddit post noticed by , Pixel consumer “asevarte” recounts how their morning alarm would go off and generally flip off moments later for seemingly no motive. “Perhaps as soon as each different week or so, I might get up half-hour in a while my backup alarm, with no indication as to why the primary shut itself off,” they advised the Google Pixel subreddit.

Earlier this week, asevarte determined to get up early to resolve the problem. Fortunately, it didn’t take lengthy to search out the offender. Their alarm was set to play a Spotify playlist that options “The place Is My Thoughts?” When you’re a Pixies fan, you realize precisely the place that is going. The Surfer Rosa minimize opens with bassist and vocalist Kim Deal singing “Ooh” earlier than frontman Black Francis says, “Cease,” and the music, following a quick pause, then continues. The part triggered Google Assistant to prematurely finish asevarte’s alarm. That they had the playlist set to shuffle, which is what made figuring out the bug tough.

 recorded a video of the oversight in motion, and certain sufficient, enjoying “The place Is My Thoughts?” ends an alarm early. Apparently, different songs that characteristic a distinguished “cease,” comparable to “Don’t Cease Me Now” by Queen, don’t seem to set off Assistant’s Fast Phrases characteristic in the identical means that “The place Is My Thoughts?” does. Android Police speculates the explanation for that could possibly be that in these different songs “cease” is backed by instrumentals. That traces up with complaints Assistant customers have had through the years that the characteristic doesn’t work once they attempt to use it whereas their good show, speaker or Pixel gadget is enjoying music.

When you’re inquisitive about what the Pixies consider all this. The band’s official Twitter account caught the unique Android Police story. “Sorry about that!” the account tweeted.
