The alarm clock supports using buttons to set the alarm, in addition to voice.

Users can just say, “Hey Google, play my morning playlist.” It also offers feature parity with other Google Assistant-enabled smart speakers and supports voice match for up to six users at a time. The device also supports Hindi language commands. This software feature is specific to India, and the Smart Clock Essential will be Lenovo’s first device to support Hindi language.
