Does anybody know how "Google Now" handles this?




I believe if you don't say 'tomorrow' it will work correctly. It is pretty annoying.

I'd test it myself but I sold my Galaxy Nexus on Craigslist, waiting for the Nexus 4 to be released.


Yes, it did work: http://ompldr.org/vZzZtaA


Which means you'll have to sleep after midnight if you want your Android phone to wake you, or wait for an update (like Sleeping Beauty.)


Android alarms work a bit differently to what you are thinking. The basic alarms are set around times, and when the time comes around, the alarm goes off. So as long as it's after 9:01 am when you use this command, the alarm will go off at 9am the next day correctly.

To deal with days the alarms have a 'repeat' option, listing which days the alarm should go off. Google Now can't handle these kinds of alarms yet. If you needed an alarm for a specific day then you'd probably use calendar alarms, however I don't think they're fully linked into Google Now at the moment.


Yeah this is not the case. It just sets it for the next available 9pm.


Google Now doesn't do specific dates yet.
