    I'm not sure what is a "briefing alarm".

    I am in the process of making my Note 4 self aware.

    Do you mean "smart alarm"? It's a kind of "pre-alarm" that goes off before the real alarm? It starts out quiet and gradually gets louder?

    I have the S3 and it has "smart alarm".

    No, briefing, the feature where it reads out loud the time, weather, and headlines before the alarm goes off. It doesn't work if you have smart alarm already enabled though. But on the Note 4 I don't see the feature at all.

    They got rid of the briefing alarm long ago... My S4, Note 3, etc.. no longer had it.

    Damn, that's a shame. I was looking forward to having that again.

    Have you searched the Play Store for it? I think this app is it but I've never used it so I don't know. It says it reads news and info to you and it's made by Samsung.

    My AT&T Note 3 had it. I found this page trying to find out what happened to it and location based alarms.

    Could you make a back up of the apk and share it with us? I also need this feature, the briefing alarm but the link does not work anymore! ='(
    I am also very disappointed that there is no more briefing feature on newer Samsung phones.

    Open settings. General settings. Go down to system. Click on LANGUAGE AND INPUT. Scroll down to Speech. Click on READ NOTIFICATIONS ALOUD. Select the box next to Alarm Info. It will read the name.of the alarm and tome to you. I still cant figure.out how to do briefing to include weather and/calendar stuff but here's a start.
