Has anyone experienced any discrepancy with setting up the alarm on the nest hub using routines?
First of all, I have my default alarm tone set as "acoustic jam",
but whenever I set my alarm during my bedtime routine, the alarm always came up with "gentle pastures" tone instead of my default, which is very annoying.
Also is it possible to have the sunrise alarm turn on as default? I don't really want to go into the alarm setting to turn it on manually every time before I go to bed.
Can anyone shed some light on how to do this properly? It should be a simple task but I have tried numerous times with no joy. Any help is appreciated.
(I am on cast firmware: 1.56.309385)

Hey Dan, thanks for the reply.
But for your follow up, I have this issue since day 1. I assume the default alarm tone setting is not linked with any alarm set by the routines? cuz whatever I do the routine alarm always have "gentle pastures" as default, and the tone I picked in settings only applies when I manually set it by touch or voice command.
Regarding the sunrise alarm, I figured out I can add another custom command "switch on the sunrise alarm for my alarm" to have sunrise effect turn on after I set the alarn during my routine, quite troublesome cuz it takes another step.
If there are any command which makes my bedtime routine to set an alarm with both sunrise effect + morning routine from the get-go I would love to know.
Alarm tones can be changed on Nest displays once you start an alarm. You can't change general alarm tones on speakers. Have you already done a reset on your Google Home/Nest device? If not, then click this link to revert it back to its default/original settings.
I do know that the concerned teams are aware this is happening. Another thing that is helpful is for you to send feedback about this via your Home device. Just tell your Home to share feedback and then record your message. I really encourage anybody that is experiencing this issue to do that.
