Google is likely working on two built-in snore, cough detection features

Tech giant Google is working on two built-in snore and cough detection features that will allow it to detect whether users are snoring or coughing while they sleep.

The tech giant is reportedly working on these features for Pixel and Android, 9To5Google reported.

The tech website spotted lines of code in the Google Health Studies app installer file. He revealed that the company was conducting a study called “Sleep Audio Collection” which is only available to Google employees.

“You must be a full-time Googler with an Android phone to participate in this study,” the report states.

“The environmental conditions required for this study are having no more than one adult sleeper in the same room who does not work for a competing company,” he added.

Google explained that its “health sensing team is actively working to bring an advanced suite of sensing capabilities and algorithms to Android devices to provide users with meaningful insight into their sleep.”

This audio collection “supports that mission by providing the data needed to validate, tune, and develop such algorithms.”

These “cough and snore algorithms” will result in a “bedside monitoring” feature on Android devices that works in a “privacy-preserving, on-device” way for cough and snore monitoring. acenocturnes”.
