Troubleshooting

If you experience difficulties setting an online radio station as your alarm, refer to the troubleshooting steps below:

  1. Ensure that you have entered the correct streaming URL. An online radio station's streaming URL is not the same as the main URL of the radio station website. For most online radio stations, you can get it from the original radio player app.
  2. Ensure that you have entered the streaming URL in a supported format. A list of supported formats is available on the Android Support website.
  • Alarm Clock Xtreme 7.x for Android
  • Google Android 6.0 (Marshmallow, API 23) or later
