Just in case someone else runs into this issue.
My alarm (default app) would get snoozed immideately after going off, thus becoming useless.

I have discovered that if I disable the "OK Google" detection from any screen option, the alarm functions fine.

Hope it helps someone not to miss any important appointments.

The ok google from any screen feature also kills the video camera. You get a "can not record while on a call" warning.

Glad I happened to see this post ... For the past week I've been trying to figure out what was automatically dismissing my alarm ... Uninstalled and reinstalled so many apps and xposed modules and never figured it out. Thanks!

Gald I could help. Also, at least I know that it's not only happening on my phone.
I wonder if the bug has to be submitted to Google or LG?

Running in to a similar issue. But instead of the alarm snoozing. I get a pop up message stating "Alarm/Clock has stopped working" and then a flashing notification light. The problem started just this week. I uninstalled the latest Google update and also turned off OK Google" detection from any screen, but that doesn't seem to have had any impact. Odd that I've had no problems with Google Now up until this past Tuesday.

I was unable to replicate your issue. I only get the "Snoozed" notification.
However, I moved to Timely alarm app since and it works just fine.

Thank you for the response. I was hoping I'd be able to figure out what's the issue is and continue to use the stock app. But looks like I'll have look into a third-party app.

Thanks again.
