Nowadays many of us rely on our smartphones and smartwatches when it comes to alarms. Back in the day, there would be devices such as clock radios that would wake users up to a radio station at a set time, and if you miss that way of waking up, not to worry as Yahoo might have something for you.

The company has recently launched a new mobile app in the form of an alarm clock, but this is no ordinary alarm clock app as it will actually be capable of reading to you the latest news snippets. This means that you can get up to the latest news if you’re the sort of person who likes staying on top of such things.

Unsurprisingly the bulk of the information pulled from the news are from outlets owned by Oath, which includes Yahoo News, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, and Yahoo Entertainment. There will also be news from sources such as Huffington Post and Engadget. We’re not sure if there are plans to eventually source news from other outlets, but those will be what’s available at launch.

The app is still in testing and only available to Android users and if you’re interested in testing it out, head on over to Google Play for the download.
