In Android 9, we see a new feature called Digital Wellbeing, which includes digital health capabilities in Android. Now Google plans to add the ability to track snoring and coughing.
Also, Digital Wellbeing will apparently work in conjunction with Google Clock’s sleep tracking feature. Google Clock’s sleep tracking feature can track and monitor your sleep duration using sensors.
According to magentabyte, in the new beta version of the Well Being application, evidence of the addition of new features can be seen. According to your mobile phone, this feature is related to the sleep mode section. In this feature, the microphone of the phone is used to track the snoring or coughing of users. Probably, this application will also interact with Google Cock. In this way, the ambient light is tracked with the help of the gyroscope sensor.
Users can activate the sleep and snoring tracking system on a scheduled basis. Also, access to the phone’s microphone will be set manually. The information obtained from this sensor can be seen in the form of graphs or averages along with other data in the program. It is not yet clear when this feature will be available to users. But probably all Android phones and all Samsung phones will be equipped with it.
This sensor will be active only in predetermined hours. Its data including graphs and the average number of coughs and the average time of snoring will be visible in the information in the program. You will also be shown the times when you did not cough or snore while sleeping.
Finally, it is not yet clear when this feature will be available through the Digital Wellbeing program. Or whether it is offered for all Android phones or not. However, we can expect all Samsung smartphones to be equipped with it.
