On its trail to creating unique products and services for smartphone users, Google is apparently working on a new health feature.
9to5Google recently discovered lines of code in the Google Health Studies app’s installation file that revealed something that Google is working on. And apparently, they are currently working on a study exclusively on Google employees. This study is called “Sleep Audio Collection.”
Through the study, Google is collecting data that will help them validate, tune, and develop their algorithms. If this proves to be successful, Google could be releasing a feature that would detect snoring and coughing from an Android device.
Right now, the study is only for “Full Time Googlers” who are using “an Android phone”. But once Google completes its experimentation, it won’t probably be too long before it implements it. There is little information available yet on how Google plans to use this function and whether it will be exclusive on its Pixel phones or on all smartphones running Android OS.
