Friends from 9to5Google found out that Google is currently working on a cough and snoring detection feature that will be part of the digital wellbeing suite. In the app’s latest beta update, it was discovered that Google will offer snoring and cough tracking; it is intended to be part of the Bedtime Mode section and will usecell phonemicrophone to listen for snoring or coughing.
Plus, Digital Wellbeing works with Google Clock’s sleep tracking feature, which actually uses the phone’s gyroscope and ambient light sensors to track the owner’s sleep time.
Users can also turn on cough and snoring detection during their scheduled bedtime, and it will appear alongside other options, such as display customization and do not disturb, which requires microphone permission to enable.
It’s worth noting that this sensor is only active for the time you set. Data on coughing and snoring will also appear along with the information present in the usage of the app. The end user will get a weekly graph view, along with the average number of coughs and average snoring time.
The upcoming feature will also show when you slept without coughing or snoring. Right now, there’s no given word on when this feature will be available on the Digital Wellbeing app.
