Google is rolling out snoring and cough detection for Android

As early as May, it was reported that Google was developing a built-in snoring and cough detection function for the Android system, and now new evidence shows that this function will be provided through Digital Wellbeing (digital health).

Google previously introduced this feature for the second-generation Nest Hub, in partnership with Soli. According to 9to5Google, Digital Wellbeing's beta update (version 1.2.x) today revealed that "cough and snoring detection" will be part of "sleep mode".

To track coughing and snoring levels "at your scheduled bedtime", snoring and coughing detection will have to be manually enabled, and microphone access will be allowed, a feature that will be integrated with the existing Google Clock, which can detect when the phone is stationary in a dark environment Time to determine the user's sleep time.

The Digital Wellbeing app provides a graph of weekly snoring and coughing views, as well as "average number of coughs" and "average duration of snoring," and reports "you didn't cough or snore during your scheduled bedtime."

In terms of availability, it's unclear if the feature will be available on all devices with Digital Wellbeing or just on Pixel phones.

Digital Wellbeing is an initiative proposed by Google at its Google I/O event in 2018 to help users teach how to balance their digital and real lives. The Digital Wellbeing app lets Android users know how long they've been on their device, how often they've unlocked their phone, and what notifications they've received, and can set app usage time limits to limit how long they can use their phone.
